Please follow the following steps to upgrade u-boot on your board:
1– First download “6x_upgrade” and “upgrade.scr” from the following link:
2– (if you already have a u-boot file of your own that you want to upgrade to, please ignore this step)
Then if you want to upgrade your u-boot to the latest version download the specific u-boot file for your board from the following link: (for example for nitrogen8m board, download “u-boot.nitrogen8m”)
If you are unsure about which version to use, U-Boot should be able to tell you by issuing the following command in its prompt:
=> printenv uboot_defconfig uboot_defconfig=nitrogen8m
Do NOT flash a different U-Boot, if unsure, please contact us.
