2008-05-27 10:12:00 Problem with booting uboot over UART on BF527 Ezkit
Ashish Gupta (INDIA)
I am facing problem with booting uboot on BF527 EZKIT over UART.
I am using the u-boot-bf527-ezkit-uart-2008R1.ldr image downloaded from the latest release, I am able to use the LDR viewer ver 2 to transfer the image over the BF527 EZkit in BMODE 8 (boot over UART1) at Baud rate 115200 bps. Please see the screenshot image of the above process.
But I don't get a uboot promt as I hit enter on my terminal program (Hyper Terminal), I tried with both 115200 and 57600 as baud rates for Hyper Terminal.
Please indicate if my procedure is flawed.
Also, I was able to boot the 527EZkit from SPI Flash after it using VDSP with u-boot-bf527-ezkit-spi-2008R1.ldr from the same release.

the process for booting over the UART is documented here:
beyond that, we dont really use LdrViewer or VDSP or Windows tools
