With the MBR/DOS partition table format Toradex Easy Installer supports only primary partition, hence up to 4 partitions…
We are in the process of creating Tezi images for our Andorid BSP’s, which use GPT too. We already started to work on GPT support (see #29412). It is planned to officially release this feature with 1.4, where we also increment the
config_format version number to 2. This allows older Toradex Easy Installer to detect images which require GPT support (instead of just failing due to invalid JSON property values).
However, in order to test the feature Toradex Easy Installer 1.3 is already capable of creating GPT. We anticipate to release 1.4 with GPT support as we have it currently. Hence, you can test GPT support already now by using the 1.3 release. To instruct the Toradex Easy Installer to use GPT set the property
gpt in the block device dictionary e.g.
The Partition Type GUID can be specified using the
partition_type property. If a file system is specified in the content of the partition, Toradex Easy Installer will automatically choose an appropriate Partition Type GUID according to the table in the Wikipedia Article about GUID Partition Table.
