Toradex Apalis iMX6 Guide

Use Flashing Wizard to flash the image to your Toradex Apalis iMX6:

  • Connect your SD card reader to the development host. Make sure that the SD card size is at least 2 GB.

    Note: If you are using the Apalis evaluation board, you need to use the first SD card slot (X18).

  • Launch Qt Creator.
  • Select Tools > Flash Boot to Qt Device, and follow the instructions in Flashing Wizard.

In order to boot from the external SD card, U-Boot needs to be updated.

Booting from External SD Card

Connect a serial cable to the device and enter into the U-Boot environment by pressing any key before the autoboot.

Enter the following commands into U-Boot:

run setupdate
run update

Note: After running the command run update, the following warning message appears:

Warning: Programming fuses is an irreversible operation!
Updating to fast boot mode prevents easy downgrading to previous BSP versions.
Really perform this fuse programming? <y/N>

You can answer with y.

Reset or power cycle the device to start the new U-Boot.

To reset the U-Boot environment to new default values, enter the following commands in the U-Boot command line

env default -a

New U-Boot commands are now stored into the device.

Note: If you are using the Ixora carrier board, see Known Issues.
