Summary: BF527 uImage Flashing issue(Copy to Flash... Flash not Erased)

Details:

 

Hi,

 

I'm trying to save both u-boot and uImage in BF527 Ezkit flash so the device will not need to netboot. uboot i downloaded latest version (u-boot-bf527-ezkit-para-2009R1.1-rc1.ldr)

 

Here's what I have done for flashing uImage:-

 

1. Boot device and stop u-boot's autoboot.

 

2. TFTP uImage to 0x1000000 ->tftp 0x1000000 uImage

 

3. Move uImage to flash starting at 0x20040000

 

3.a unprotect sectors starting at 0x20040000->protect off 0x20040000 0x203DFFFF

 

3.b erase sectors starting at 0x20040000-> erase 0x20040000 0x203DFFFF

 

3.c copy 0x100000 to 0x20040000  ->cp.b $(loadaddr) 0x20040000 $(filesize)

 

 

I got the "Copy to Flash... Flash not Erased" error message.

 

 

The Console message is as below

if you have problems, please post your questions to the forums, not the tracker

 

that forum posting you referenced is a specific board issue and has no relation

to the bf527-ezkit at all

 

verify your switch settings by using the wiki in the mean time
