U-Boot for the Congatec conga-QMX8 board

Quick Start

  • Build the ARM Trusted firmware binary

  • Get scfw_tcm.bin and ahab-container.img

  • Get imx-mkimage

  • Build U-Boot

  • Build imx-mkimage

  • Flash the binary into the SD card

  • Boot

Get and Build the ARM Trusted firmware

$ git clone https://github.com/nxp-imx/imx-atf
$ cd imx-atf/
$ git checkout origin/imx_4.14.78_1.0.0_ga -b imx_4.14.78_1.0.0_ga
$ make PLAT=imx8qm bl31

Get scfw_tcm.bin and ahab-container.img

$ wget https://www.nxp.com/lgfiles/NMG/MAD/YOCTO/imx-sc-firmware-1.1.bin
$ chmod +x imx-sc-firmware-1.1.bin
$ ./imx-sc-firmware-1.1.bin
$ wget https://www.nxp.com/lgfiles/NMG/MAD/YOCTO/firmware-imx-8.0.bin
$ chmod +x firmware-imx-8.0.bin
$ ./firmware-imx-8.0.bin

Or use this to avoid running random scripts from the internet, but note that you must agree to the license the script displays:

$ dd if=imx-sc-firmware-1.1.bin of=imx-sc-firmware-1.1.tar.bz2 bs=37185 skip=1
$ tar -xf imx-sc-firmware-1.1.tar.bz2
$ cp imx-sc-firmware-1.1/mx8qx-val-scfw-tcm.bin $(builddir)

$ dd if=firmware-imx-8.0.bin of=firmware-imx-8.0.tar.bz2 bs=37180 skip=1
$ tar -xf firmware-imx-8.0.tar.bz2
$ cp firmware-imx-8.0/firmware/seco/mx8qm-ahab-container.img $(builddir)

Build U-Boot

$ export ATF_LOAD_ADDR=0x80000000
$ export BL33_LOAD_ADDR=0x80020000
$ make cgtqmx8_defconfig
$ make

Flash the binary into the SD card

Burn the flash.bin binary to SD card offset 32KB:

$ sudo dd if=flash.bin of=/dev/sd[x] bs=1k seek=32 conv=fsync
