Quick Start
- Build the ARM trusted firmware binary
- Get scfw_tcm.bin and ahab-container.img
- Build U-Boot
- Load U-Boot binary using uuu
- Flash U-Boot binary into the eMMC
- Boot
Get and Build the ARM Trusted Firmware
.. code-block:: bash
$ git clone -b toradex_imx_5.4.24_2.1.0
$ cd imx-atf/
$ make PLAT=imx8qx bl31
Get scfw_tcm.bin and ahab-container.img
.. code-block:: bash
$ wget
$ wget
$ chmod +x imx-seco-3.6.3.bin
$ ./imx-seco-3.6.3.bin
Copy the following binaries to the U-Boot folder:
.. code-block:: bash
$ cp imx-atf/build/imx8qx/release/bl31.bin .
$ cp imx-seco-3.6.3/firmware/seco/mx8qxb0-ahab-container.img mx8qx-ahab-container.imx8_defconfig
Build U-Boot
.. code-block:: bash
$ make apalis-imx8x_defconfig
$ make u-boot-dtb.imx
Load the U-Boot Binary Using UUU

to your host and execute uuu:
.. code-block:: bash
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 and boot:
.. code-block:: bash
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}
