The latest Stable Release of the RidgeRun SDK called 2011Q2 comes with a new installer system that give to the user a high flexibility and a huge variety of installation modes such as SD, NAND and JFFS2. However in order to achieve this features a new u-boot system must be placed in the board so it will support the features available.

Since a new board comes with the factory's default u-boot, it is necessary to flash the RidgeRun's u-boot in the board before continue using the SDK, but how can we install an image into the board using the RidgeRun's SDK if the board doesn't have the RidgeRun's u-boot installed?

Now we are going to explain how to flash the RidgeRun's SDK for the following boards:

  • LeopardBoard DM365
  • TI DM365 EVM
  • OMAP35x TOBI
