Configuration of onboard Wi-Fi module on Imx6ull (512Mb)

I am using Colibri-imx6ull_console-image-tezi_2.8b6.184-20190401
generated using kernel branch: Toradex_4.9-2.3.x-imx and ubootbranch: 2016.11-toradex
I have done the customisation for gpios and pripherals and able togenerate .dtb, zimage and
uboot-nand files
for imx6ull 256Mb and found to be working

but now want to migrate to imx6ull 512mb (on board wi fi/bt module) and configure the wi-fi module
Is any change do i need to do in device tree files or need to integrate drivers for wi fi configurations?
please let me know the step by step procedure to configure the on board wi fi module

Hi @SDR ,

You can follow our Quick Start Guide below for Colibri iMX6ULL and Aster. There basic usage of WiFi and configuration is explained.

Hello sir,
Thank you for your valuable reply. I have gone through the details but, it seems to be the part which is used after the image building. Also, I have tested this on demo images provided. But, i am stuck up in generation of image with wi fi pins configuration/ drivers configuration in device tree in kernel 2.8b. I want to generate my own custom image with wi fi functionality using kernel branch: Toradex_4.9-2.3.x-imx and ubootbranch: 2016.11-toradex
please let me know your suggestions

Hi @SDR,

Here I would like to suggest you to check below release note in context with Wifi and then take decision which BSP version to go forward with.

Regarding building custom image please refer below page. Please be noted that on module WiFi is supported out of the box. If you facing any issue kindly share detail information and error so that we can help you with same.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your valuable reply.
With kernel branch: Toradex_4.9-2.3.x-imx and uboot branch: 2016.11-toradex I have generated customized image for Wi-Fi and facing the below mentioned issue:

root@colibri-imx6ull:~# connmanctl enable wifi

Error wifi: Method “SetProperty” with signature “sv” on interface “net.connman.Technology” doesn’t exist

Also, can you let me know kernel branch, u-boot branch and bsp version for building the customized image for wi - fi configuration to be used or preferred

Hi @SDR ,

Could you please share some logs in order to understand issue in detail. Run below command and share output



cat /sys/kernel/debug/mmc*/ios

cat /etc/issue

Additionally please share exact hardware version of Colibri iMX6ULL.

Update: BSP 2.8 you need to include backport or test with BSP 5. Check below link for more details.
