A binary package is available here:
Nitrogen6X or BD-SL-i.MX6 boards like so:
U-Boot > bootfile=u-boot.nitrogen6q ; run upgradeuRefer to this post for more detail and this post for the list of available machine configurations.
There aren’t too many new features in this release, and no critical bug fixes for most users, so don’t feel pressured to upgrade immediately.
There are a couple of notable bug fixes though:
- This patch to the clock startup fixed an issue for QNX users. Without it, the GPU would fail to start in around 1 of 10 boot cycles. We also noticed that it cured an occasional hang initializing the SD card and/or SATA under U-Boot, and
- This patch from Fabio fixed the artifacts on HDMI on Dual-Lite and Solo boards.
Finally, we removed the U-Boot (Linux penguin) logo from the splash screen. As much as we love Tux, it didn’t make a lot of sense when booting QNX or Windows CE (err. Embedded 7). Splash screen support is still present, so you can put him back.
The source code is in the normal place (“production” branch on GitHub). We’ve kept the older release in branch production-before-20131107.
In case there’s a regression, binaries of the older 2013.07 release are available here: reach out if you have any trouble.
