Minnowboard MAXΒΆ

This uses as FSP as with Crown Bay, except it is for the Atom E3800 series. Download this and get the .fd file (BAYTRAIL_FSP_GOLD_003_16-SEP-2014.fd at the time of writing). Put it in the corresponding board directory and rename it to fsp.bin.

Obtain the VGA RAM (Vga.dat at the time of writing) and put it into the same board directory as vga.bin.

You still need two more binary blobs. For Minnowboard MAX, we can reuse the same ME firmware above, but for flash descriptor, we need get that somewhere else, as the one above does not seem to work, probably because it is not designed for the Minnowboard MAX. Now download the original firmware image for this board from:

Unzip it:

$ unzip 2014-WW42.4-MinnowBoardMax.73-64-bit.bin_Release.zip

Use ifdtool in the U-Boot tools directory to extract the images from that file, for example:

$ ./tools/ifdtool -x MNW2MAX1.X64.0073.R02.1409160934.bin

This will provide the descriptor file - copy this into the correct place:

$ cp flashregion_0_flashdescriptor.bin board/intel/minnowmax/descriptor.bin

Now you can build U-Boot and obtain u-boot.rom:

$ make minnowmax_defconfig
$ make all

Checksums are as follows (but note that newer versions will invalidate this):

$ md5sum -b board/intel/minnowmax/*.bin
ffda9a3b94df5b74323afb328d51e6b4  board/intel/minnowmax/descriptor.bin
69f65b9a580246291d20d08cbef9d7c5  board/intel/minnowmax/fsp.bin
894a97d371544ec21de9c3e8e1716c4b  board/intel/minnowmax/me.bin
a2588537da387da592a27219d56e9962  board/intel/minnowmax/vga.bin

The ROM image is broken up into these parts:

Offset Description Controlling config
000000 descriptor.bin Hard-coded to 0 in ifdtool
001000 me.bin Set by the descriptor
500000 <spare>  
6ef000 Environment CONFIG_ENV_OFFSET
700000 u-boot-dtb.bin CONFIG_SYS_TEXT_BASE
7b0000 vga.bin CONFIG_VGA_BIOS_ADDR
7c0000 fsp.bin CONFIG_FSP_ADDR
7f8000 <spare> (depends on size of fsp.bin)
7ff800 U-Boot 16-bit boot CONFIG_SYS_X86_START16

Overall ROM image size is controlled by CONFIG_ROM_SIZE.

Note that the debug version of the FSP is bigger in size. If this version is used, CONFIG_FSP_ADDR needs to be configured to 0xfffb0000 instead of the default value 0xfffc0000.
