We have just received a new Verdin i.mx8M Plus as well as its Verdin carrier board (V1.1A). It has the multimedia image installed by default:
root@verdin-imx8mp:~# hostnamectl Static hostname: verdin-imx8mp Icon name: computer Machine ID: c065814c757b460ea7d0a6398a080957 Boot ID: 81b3e0b84c6043d88fc8df24f90b8909 Operating System: TDX Wayland with XWayland 5.2.0-devel-202103+build.8 (dunfell) Kernel: Linux 5.4.91-5.2.0-devel+git.c59b3c2da1e9 Architecture: arm64
I could generate an EZ installer image with Yocto and would like to install it. Unfortunately, I was not able to start the Toradex EZ installer, the process just hangs:
Verdin-iMX8MM_ToradexEasyInstaller_2.0b7-20210415 ➞ ./recovery-linux.sh Downloading Toradex Easy Installer... Password: uuu (Universal Update Utility) for nxp imx chips -- libuuu_1.4.43-0-ga9c099a Success 0 Failure 0 1:6114 1/ 0 [ ]
The CPU seems to be in bootstrap mode since it is recognized by listing devices:
./recovery/uuu -lsusb uuu (Universal Update Utility) for nxp imx chips -- libuuu_1.4.127-0-ga9c099a Connected Known USB Devices Path Chip Pro Vid Pid BcdVersion ================================================== 1:6114 MX865 SDPS: 0x1FC9 0x0146 0x0002
If I try to load the bootloader manually, it fails with an USB error:
sudo ./recovery/uuu imx-boot uuu (Universal Update Utility) for nxp imx chips -- libuuu_1.4.43-0-ga9c099a Success 0 Failure 1 1:6114 1/ 2 [HID(W):LIBUSB_ERROR_IO ] SDPS: boot -f "imx-boot"
I didn’t find any release for the i.mx8 plus and consequently work with the mini release, wondering if that could be an issue. Another difference with what I could find on your documentation is that it has USB C instead of micro USB but it should probably not be a big deal … right?
- Is there something I’m doing wrong or missing?
- Is is officially supported on Verdin i.mx8m plus?
Thanks for the pointers!
