How do I switch from a Wandboard to an EDM board

Postby nevmair » Fri Jan 29, 2016 4:59 pm

I know that the basic difference between the wandboards and EDM boards is SD card on the wand VS FLASH on the EDM board.

What do I have to change in u-boot to boot from the FLASH instead of the SD card?

I am using the latest u-boot and a 3.10.53 kernel from the wandboard git.


Thanks

Sorry about the delayed answer, we have been afk over Chinese New Years leave.

Which edm boards are you referring to?
edm-cf-imx6 is similar to wanboard, but with eMMC flash instead of on-module SD card.
Also some pins are different, but I'd say they are some 80-90% compatible.

Not a problem with the delay. Hope you had a good new year.

It is an EDM1-CF-IMX6 (specifically EDM1-CF-iMX6U10-R1GB-Ni4G-BW-L-2C-TE)

I have noted the other differences between the 2 boards.
We are using a custom carrier board and have remapped the necessary pins.


Thanks

As far as I can tell, if your SD card boots from the slot on the module, it should be able to be 'dd' into eMMC on an edm-cf-imx6.
