I am able to program the FPGA bitstream, but I am unable to program the flash.
I keep getting an error saying:
"Problem in initializing hardware."
Steps Taken from the Vivado SDK:
1. Program FPGA bitstream using system_top.bit - this finishes and upon finishing, I can see that in addition to the power LED being on, now the user LED is on and solid as well.
2. From there I short pin 5 of the jtag connector to ground and try to program flash with the following files:
The programmer tries to perform the flash but I end up getting the below error message and the user led turns off
"Problem in initializing hardware".
From my experimentation this far, If I try to program the flash without grounding the JTAG_Boot pin, I get an error saying that boot mode is QSPI and the flash programming never finishes. This makes sense. But when grounding the JTAG_Boot pin, I either get the above: "Problem in initializing hardware" or an error relating to failure of the blank check and/or verify after programming.
"Flash programming initialization failed"
I know i am using the correct bit stream, but I am unsure of the correct files being used for the flash. To my understanding, What I am really trying to do is flash the FSBL so that I do not have to flash the bitstream for every power cycle.
Is there a generalized step by step list of files that need to be used? my ultimate goal is to learn the process from starting with a "blank" pluto board and being able to get it up and going into it's default delivered state.
