We’ve just swapped around the production and staging branches of our GitHub repository for i.MX6.
The old production branch is now in branch production-before-20130402 and the prior staging branch is now in branch production, reflecting the fact that we’ll now be shipping versions based on our multi-CPU structure.
The primary thing you need to know was described in the previous post. You’ll now need to specify the board configuration in more detail. Instead of nitrogen6x_config, most of you will want nitrogen6q_config, reflecting the fact that you’re building for our standard Quad-Core, 1GB board.

Support for Nitrogen6X and variants has now been accepted for inclusion in the next release of main-line U-Boot, so we’ll be prepping a new staging
branch to track that for future development.
