Thanks for your responses, Marcel.
You are very welcome.
The primary issue is that no keyboard presses are recognized until the login prompt is up. So I am unable to get into uboot prompt.
I am using Apalis iMX6 2GB IT - V1.1B bought recently but was shipped with a old BSP Angstrom v2014.12 and without toradex easy installer.
Yes, paradoxically we still ship them with an older since unsupported BSP V2.4 beta 1 which has mainly to do with the irreversible fast boot mode fusing and only the later V1.1C will ship with the Toradex Easy Installer pre-installed and consequentially fast boot mode being enabled by default.
BTW: I have such an exact Apalis iMX6Q 2GB IT V1.1B module which for me works just fine:

A hack (that I added commands in uboot variable to run update) to upgrade the os to 2.7 ended up half done with only the uboot updating and not the OS. Hence I am now stuck with these two versions.
OK, now I understand.
I also tried the easy installer, problem is, I need to get into uboot to give “bmode usb” , and I cant get into uboot.
Yes, alternatively one can also short some pad on the module itself as outlined in the data sheet or press the recovery button on the Apalis iMX6 Mezzanine daughter card should you have one.
