Need ext2load in Colibri iMX6 uBoot


I need to use the “ext2load” command in the uBoot of my Colibri iMX6DL 512MB V1.0B but it says “unknown command ‘ext2load’ -try help”. For help, I can see that the version 2016.11-2.7.4 + g1b121c6 has command ‘ext4load’ but not ‘ext2load’.

I was trying to update uBoot by following this:

but when I write:
Colibri iMX6 # run setupdate
Colibri iMX6 # run update

It is running for a while and it is finally shown:
MMC write: dev #0 … OK
resetting …

And it restarts but I still have no ext2load command.

Please, could you help me? Thank you


I believe that ext4load is able to read a file from an ext2 filesystem. So did you actually try to read using the ext4load command?


Hello @max.tx

If I buy one or two colibri cards iMX6DL now to Toradex, will I get both of them with this ext2load command in their uboot version? If that is right I will buy them.

Thank you


I don’t think that we ever enabled the ext2load command in U-Boot. As already said I’m also quite sure that the enabled command ext4load is a drop in replacement for ext2load.

So no, also a new Colibri iMX6 will not ship with that command enabled in U-Boot.

If you absolutely need it you can build U-Boot from source and enable the needed configuration before compiling.
