Build the bootloaders (U-boot & X-Loader) for Pandaboard

December 15th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve tried to compile u-boot and x-loader for Pandaboard by following the instructions given at http://omappedia.org/wiki/Get_started_with_ubuntu_on_omap4#Bootloaders. I did this in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Linaro gcc compiler.

Here are the instructions for the build:

  • Create the folders:

  • Get u-boot and checkout the omap4_dev branch:

You may use a different tag. Simply run “git tag -l | grep L24” to see the list of tags. (I used the latest at the time of this post).

  • Build u-boot for OMAP4

At this point, you should get U-boot (u-boot.bin).

  • get x-loader and checkout the omap4_dev branch:

N.B: Both u-boot and x-loader folders must be at the same directory level.

  • build x-loader for OMAP4:

The x-loader (MLO) should now be ready.

Finally, you simply need to copy MLO and u-boot.bin files to the SD card.
