Set up the board for updating using the manufacturing tools:
OPTIONAL - Only required if you have a problems and/or want to see the boot console output.
Connect the micro-B end of the USB cable into debug port J1901. Connect the other end of the cable to a PC acting as a host terminal. One UART connection will appear on the PC. On a Linux host for example:
$ ls -l /dev/serial/by-id/ total 0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Dec 3 13:09 usb-Silicon_Labs_CP2102_USB_to_UART_Bridge_Controller_0001-if00-port0 -> ../../ttyUSB2
Using a serial terminal program like minicom, connect to the port with
if00in the name (in this example ttyUSB2) and apply the following configuration
- Baud rate: 115200
- Data bits: 8
- Stop bit: 1
- Parity: None
- Flow control: None
Ensure that the power is off (SW2001)
Put the imx6ullevk into programing mode:
|OFF||OFF||Boot From Fuses|
- Connect your computer to the EVK board via the USB OTG jack.
- Connect the plug of the 5V power supply to the DC power jack J2001.
- Power on the EVK board by sliding power switch SW2001 to ON.
Once in serial downloader mode and connected to your PC the evaluation board should show up as a Freescale USB device.
To put the EVK into run mode, switch SW602 to
internal boot by setting to
ON, OFF (from 1-2bit). This is the opposite of programming mode described previously.
