BF609-EZKIT, uboot flash

Question asked by CCL on Mar 3, 2015

we got the bf609_ezkit and I am having trouble getting uboot into the flash on
the eval board.
Eval board line:
http://www.analog.com/en/design-center/evaluation-hardware-and-software/evaluati
on-boards-kits/EVAL-BF609-EZ.html#eb-overview

I downloaded the flash for the eval board from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/adi-u-boot/files/2014R1/2014R1-RC1/
Filename:
u-boot-bf609-ezkit-2014R1.tar.bz2<
http://sourceforge.net/projects/adi-u-boot/
files/2014R1/2014R1-RC1/u-boot-bf609-ezkit-2014R1.tar.bz2/download>. I
unzipped the file and am using u-boot-bf609-ezkit-para-2014R1.ldr below.
I have the BOOT MODE on the bf609 eval baord set to '1' for parallel boot.
I have a PC running ubutu 14.04 LTS and am using jtag (as root) to connect to
the ICE-100B which is on version 2.0.8 of the firmware.

I run the following commands
cable
probe 
<- sees the ICE-100B and reports firmware
version 2.0.8

detect 
<- I had to modify a file on my
machine to support stepping 2 but it seems to detect.
initbus
bf609_ezkit 
<- no feedback here...
detectflash
0xb0000000 
<- this dumps out something reasonable I think but
would like to verify it with someone if possible
endian
little 
<- no feedback here...
flash 0xb0000000
u-boot-bf609-ezkit-para-2014R1.ldr <- this command
starts by saying "Chip: Unknown 0x8821)!" but looks it programs and
fails to verify

I cobbled together the above commands from reading various web pages.

What would really help is if someone could give me the commands that I need to
execute or tell me from the above information what I am doing wrong.

I am available anytime to get on the phone to talk to someone if that is the
easiest way to get to the end of this.

Thanks in advance.
