Recovery mode via U-boot on Colibri IMX7

I would like to be able to enter recover mode from U-boot on the Colibri IMX7. Is there a reason that this can not be done by “bmod usb” like it is done on the Aplais IMX6 modules?

The U-boot that I am using has the bmode command but it does not support the usb option

Colibri iMX7 # bmode usb
bmode - mmc|sd1|ecspi1:0|ecspi1:1|ecspi1:2|ecspi1:3|weim|qspi1|usdhc1|usdhc2|usdhc3|mmc1|mmc2|mmc3 [noreset]

Just wondering if there is a know reason that this does not work before I look into it.


Hi @mccandlt

You are right, entering recovery mode from U-Boot is not working for Colibri iMX7 which is due to the Design of the SoM. To enter the recovery mode, you need to use Hardware mechanism as described here.
