My u-boot and Linux images were built with BSP 2.7.2. The legacy flashing method used to work on V1.1A modules. Now we are switching to V1.1B modules, which come with Easy Installer. The u-boot failed to run after applying the legacy flashing method. I noticed that u-boot will run successfully if the Easy Installer is downgraded from 5.7.1 to 1.8 before flashing. But we just don’t want to go that route. How can we apply the legacy flashing method directly to the V1.1B modules out of the box?
Thanks for the reply.
I know we can set up Easy Installer to flash image automatically. But how do we set it up so that we receive a notification of completed flashing via serial console (not via the display)?
If you download Easy Installer v1.8 for Colibri iMX6. Unpack to USB drive and change “autoinstall” to “true” in the image.json file (on a USB stick). Then upon insertion of this USB stick to carrier board with module running another version of Easy Installer the v1.8 will be installed automatically. I’ve tested id and ca confirm that it works as expected.
It is possible to flash an embedded Linux image to a target module using two methods:
Toradex Easy Installer flashing: the preferred method for flashing. Check out the Toradex Easy Installer article for comprehensive information, including supported and pre-installed modules.
Legacy flashing: the flashing method prior to Toradex Easy Installer, uses bash script.
Note: Legacy flashing method does not imply that the embedded Linux image is legacy. There are pre-built Toradex images that are provided in both legacy and Toradex Easy Installer formats. Consult the image releases for a list of images in both formats.
Attention: If your Computer on Module is supported by the Toradex Easy Installer, the legacy flashing method is considered deprecated and you shouldn’t use it.
