How can ı create custom linux image for colibri imx7s


I have a colibri imx7s development board. Binary images of the Toradex BSPs can be downloaded from

I want to build a custom linux image just same as Colibri_iMX7_LinuxImageV2.6.1Beta1_20160929.tar.bz2

I refered to websites,

I already setup environment according to instructions, and built u-boot, kernel successfully. But what the next step?How to create .tar.bz2 file?

Another thing, I noticed there is a openembedded environment, what’s the difference compared with the environment I am using? Should I move to openembedded?

What environment does Colibri_iMX7_LinuxImageV2.6.1Beta1_20160929.tar.bz2 use?

Thank you so much …

Yes, our images are built using the OpenEmbedded build system as explained in the following article on our developer website.
