I was trying to load u-boot over uart but I'm facing the same problem

>bfin-uclinux-ldr -l /tftpboot/u-boot.ldr /dev/ttyS5

Loading LDR /tftpboot/u-boot.ldr ... OK!

Removing stale lock '//var/lock/LCK..ttyS5'

Opening /dev/ttyS5 ... OK!

Configuring terminal I/O ... OK!

Trying to send autobaud ... OK!

Trying to read autobaud ... bfin-uclinux-ldr: received signal 14: timeout while sending; aborting



I've put my boot mode switch to 7 also! ttyS5 is a working one!


It is given in the documents that BF5XX processors can only be used in LDRViewer. CAn bf609 also be used?


I went through a discussion on the same topic and found that there  is uart version of uboot.ldr and flash version of uboot ldr. I got an ldr file by executing 'make bf609-ezkitlite' command. How can I get the flash version?


And MOST IMPORTANTLY,  is there any way in CCES to load files in flash using flash programmer like in VDSP? Instead of going through all this procedure?
