I have an iMX6 module that is currently programmed with Windows.
I would like to flash it with Linux, but from a Windows machine.
I am unable to find anything in my searches and was wondering if (1) this is possible, and (2) if so, what is the process?
Any help would be appreciated.
Please have a look at our new Toradex Easy Installer.
As @marcel.tx already suggested, you can use our new easy installer, from a Windows or Linux PC.
To enter recovery mode you can use the HW method described in the instructions or enter the bootloader console by connecting a serial console to UARTA and pressing space during the first 2 seconds of boot.
and the module will enter recovery mode without needing HW operations.
Thanks for the feedback…
I have the iMX6 module connected into the Colibri Evaluation board.
I intercept the uBoot and get the command line, however when I enter “bmode usb” I get Invalid Command.
Any idea what am I doing wrong?
Ah, sorry, just read the comment from valter.tx - looks like the command has changed to:
This is looking better now
It’s not a change in the command.
bootfrom is the command for eboot, bmode the one from u-boot.
So after you installed Linux you can use bmode to enter recovery mode again, if needed.
Usually our i.mx6 modules come with Linux and the instructions reference u-boot commands.
It works great!
Thanks for the quick support, and for a very simple to use tool!
