I’m trying to recover a Colibri iMX6 board and hitting a wall. We’d like to use a Toradex SOM at our company and I’m evaluating them for production use. While flashing one of my images, the power burped and now it won’t boot. I’ve flashed several before without a problem, so I’ve already gone through the process. I’ve scoured the community and message threads and found a patchwork of solutions that I can’t put together to make work.
*** The main problem is that I can ./update.sh the board successfully, but whatever I do, I never get a u-boot banner or display on the serial console to continue the update from the sdcard (minicom just says OFFLINE).
- Colibri iMX6 module on Colibri eval board V3.2
- basic BSP image (V2.5)
Basically, I’ve done the following:
already started it in recovery mode
connected on USB X29 (‘lsusb’ showed connection for NXP/Freescale) to the host (Ubuntu 14.04) and did ‘./update.sh -d’ and all looked good:
loading binary file(…/colibri-imx6_bin/u-boot.imx) to 177ff400, skip=0, fsize=4
<<<306176, 306176 bytes>>>
succeeded (status 0x88888888)
jumping to 0x177ff400
already had a working connection with minicom on serial UART_A (115200, 8N1) for flashing before this.
some message threads said to disconnect the serial connection while doing the ./update.sh…also tried it
Seems like a common problem out there…all I have to get to is the u-boot display, then all that’s left is a ‘run set/update’ like normal but I don’t get any display or connection. Need to get this resolved so any help is appreciated…
thanks in advance,
