EBOOT configurstion RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I have this config.bib file in c:\WINCE600\PLATFORM\iMX233-EVK-PDK1_8\SRC\BOOTLOADER\EBOOT\

    ; Driver globals area (used to pass config info to kernel, don't change unless 
    ; you update config.bib) NOTE: We're using physical addresses here.
    ;       Name             Start         Size          Type
    ;       -------          --------      --------      ----

    ; Eboot is build to run out of RAM, so ROMSTART and ROMSIZE correspond to the

    ; ROMOFFSET applies to the BIN file sections and is used to "move" the image
    ; into NAND flash.  The bootloader image already on the system will be able to tell
    ; that the BIN file is destined for flash (versus RAM) based on the address

        nk.exe          $(_TARGETPLATROOT)\target\$(_TGTCPU)\$(WINCEDEBUG)\eboot.exe        EBOOT

    but this bootloader developed for board with 256 MB ram.

    What I must change to load this eboot to my board?

  • I don't see that you would need to change anything, unless you have less RAM on the board and the space for some of the peripherals is past the end of your RAM.

    Is there a problem that you are trying to solve?

  • It should actually load eboot from the address "80050000"

    Can you post the debug build log.

  • When I try load use sb_loader.exe they start download file and then return error -13

    So I think this is because I write wrong address.

  • Are you loading Debug eboot or Release Eboot. You are mentioning eboot size as 256 KB (ROMSIZE =00040000). If it is debug eboot then it may exceed the size.
