Flashing Embedded Linux

There is a note in the docs:

Warning: V2.7 Beta 1 release suffers a bug which does not allow to use an USB flash drive for flashing.

Has this been resolved? Does the issue continue above Beta 1?

I was using 2.7 and had an issue creating the USB Drive. I edited the update.sh and got it to work.

sudo cp ${BINARIES}/u-boot-nand.imx ${BINARIES}/zImage ${BINARIES}/ubifs.img ${BINARIES}/flash*.img ${BINARIES}/versions.txt "$OUT_DIR"
sudo cp ${BINARIES}/fwd_blk.img "$OUT_DIR/../flash_blk.imgZZZ"

It seems adding the ZZZ to the end of the file name on the second line fixed it. I had to rename later.

What exact hardware (module and carrier board) models and revisions, and software versions of things are you talking about?

I never heard of any such issue. What exact Linux distribution are you running on your development workstation where you prepare that update media?

Please note that nowadays rather than using above mentioned legacy update procedure we do recommend using the Toradex Easy Installer. Have you given that a try yet?
