I have a Colibri iMX6S V1.0A and the Colibri Evaluation Board V2.1C.
Please note that we stopped selling that one ages ago. While it should still basically work fine there may be versious considerations to be aware of (e.g. USB 2.0 high speed limitations). Depending on what exactly you are planing to do getting a more recent one may make more sense.
I have configured buildroot and built my images.
Please note that we do not support buildrooot in any way. While you may still use it it is outside our expertise and we just hope that you know what you are doing.
At the end I have that set of files:
imx6dl-colibri-eval-v3.dtb rootfs.ext2 rootfs.ext4 rootfs.tar u-boot.bin u-boot.imx zImage
I want now to flash my u-boot image, my rootfs and my zImage to my Colibri iMX6 board. i can’t find any documentation about a custom OS on the board,
Yes, sorry that we missed documenting any of them countless variants some weirdos maybe dreaming of.
and the documentation about flashing the official toradex’s linux version refers to many custom tools.
Could you elaborate some more what exactly you mean by
As none of our tools are custom at all. There is just one simple shell update script using all standard tools like e.g.
imx_usb for recovery.
Easiest for you may be to just start off with one of our regular BSP demo image packages and after having gotten used to how that one can be flashed to the module continue by replacing some of them parts with the ones you built. Some more usefull information about custom U-Boot/Linxux Kernel may be found here. And a complete article talking about installing a custom OS being JetPack albeit for Apalis TK1 (same basic principles of rootfs replacement apply).
Is there a simple way (with dd for example) to flash data into my USB key in order to make all that stuff to work, or even print error messages?
As discussed on this forum before you may also use U-Boot’s UMS feature.
You are very welcome.
