Power on the board and stop on the u-boot command line prompt.

To stop the automatic booting of the pre-installed kernel, you must send a character to the serial port by pressing a key from the serial console connected to the target (See the hardware manual for serial port connection).

Once the u-Boot is stopped, you can send the commands to set the right devicetree for your board.

I.E. :

Suppose to have an openframe 7 inch with the microdev board connected.

The commands to send for devicetree configuiration are:

setenv fdt_file microgea-mx6ull-microdev-yes7.dtb

Below a table with all the devicetree used:


Board Devicetree
Microdev Openframe 7' microgea-mx6ull-microdev-yes7.dtb
