  • Flash U-Boot binary into the eMMC
  • Boot

Get and Build the ARM Trusted Firmware

$ git clone -b toradex_imx_5.4.70_2.3.0 http://git.toradex.com/cgit/imx-atf.git/
$ make PLAT=imx8qx bl31 -C imx-atf

Get scfw_tcm.bin and ahab-container.img

$ wget https://github.com/toradex/i.MX-System-Controller-Firmware/raw/master/src/scfw_export_mx8qx_b0/build_mx8qx_b0/mx8qx-colibri-scfw-tcm.bin
$ wget https://www.nxp.com/lgfiles/NMG/MAD/YOCTO/imx-seco-3.7.4.bin
$ sh imx-seco-3.7.4.bin --auto-accept

Copy the following firmware to the U-Boot folder:

$ cp imx-atf/build/imx8qx/release/bl31.bin .
$ cp imx-seco-3.7.4/firmware/seco/mx8qxc0-ahab-container.img mx8qx-ahab-container.img

Build U-Boot

$ make colibri-imx8x_defconfig
$ make u-boot-dtb.imx

Load the U-Boot Binary Using UUU

Get the latest version of the universal update utility (uuu) aka mfgtools 3.0:

https://community.nxp.com/external-link.jspa?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2FNXPmicro%2Fmfgtools%2Freleases

Put the module into USB recovery aka serial downloader mode, connect USB device to your host and execute uuu:

sudo ./uuu u-boot/u-boot-dtb.imx

Flash the U-Boot Binary into the eMMC

Burn the u-boot-dtb.imx binary to the primary eMMC hardware boot area partition:

load mmc 1:1 $loadaddr u-boot-dtb.imx
setexpr blkcnt ${filesize} + 0x1ff && setexpr blkcnt ${blkcnt} / 0x200
mmc dev 0 1
mmc write ${loadaddr} 0x0 ${blkcnt}
