Overo Fire won't boot

McPherson, Charles A
Hi everyone,

I am using an Overo Fire com and trying to boot off of a micro SD card.  The thing boots just fine without an SD card, but refuses to boot off of one.  They are all SD cards that our other coms boot from just fine, but none of these coms seem to want to.  These are out of the box coms, never been used before.  I checked the u-boot environment variables to make sure that they made sense, but I may have missed something, here they are.

bootcmd=if mmc init; then if run loadbootscript; then run bootscript; else if ru                                                                                                                                                             n loaduimage; then run mmcboot; else run nandboot; fi; fi; else run nandboot; fi
bootdelay=5
baudrate=115200
loadaddr=0x82000000
console=ttyS2,115200n8
mpurate=500
vram=12M
dvimode=1024x768MR-16@60
defaultdisplay=dvi
mmcroot=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw
mmcrootfstype=ext3 rootwait
nandroot=/dev/mtdblock4 rw
nandrootfstype=jffs2
mmcargs=setenv bootargs console=${console} mpurate=${mpurate} vram=${vram} omapf                                                                                                                                                             b.mode=dvi:${dvimode} omapfb.debug=y omapdss.def_disp=${defaultdisplay} root=${m                                                                                                                                                             mcroot} rootfstype=${mmcrootfstype}
nandargs=setenv bootargs console=${console} mpurate=${mpurate} vram=${vram} omap                                                                                                                                                             fb.mode=dvi:${dvimode} omapfb.debug=y omapdss.def_disp=${defaultdisplay} root=${                                                                                                                                                             nandroot} rootfstype=${nandrootfstype}
loadbootscript=fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} boot.scr
bootscript=echo Running bootscript from mmc ...; source ${loadaddr}
loaduimage=fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} uImage
mmcboot=echo Booting from mmc ...; run mmcargs; bootm ${loadaddr}
nandboot=echo Booting from nand ...; run nandargs; nand read ${loadaddr} 280000                                                                                                                                                              400000; bootm ${loadaddr}
stdin=serial
stdout=serial
stderr=serial
dieid#=34240004000000000403a3810201100b

I also get a message at the beginning saying:

*** Warning - bad CRC or NAND, using default environment.

If I plug in the SD card, it doesn't even get to u-boot.  It just says:

Texas Instruments X-Loader 1.4.2 (Jan  5 2010 - 12:57:20)
Unsupported Chip!
X-Loader hangs

If anyone else has encountered this problem, fixed it, or has any ideas, all help is greatly appreciated.

Are you using prebuilt images and are you sure you have SD properly partitioned with MLO, uImage and u-boot.bin? I've never seen that before but maybe it has something to do with how the SD card is setup?

I completely forgot to mention that our older Overo Fires boot fine off of these SD cards, it's just this new one that we got that seems to be causing trouble.  We have others new ones and I'll be checking to see if those work next week, but until then I only have the one data point, so it is entirely possible that I just have a bad COM.

You need to update MLO to the most recent version.  The old version
you are using doesn't support the POP memory used on newer systems.

Where can I get such a thing?  I'm new to Gumstix, and am also pretty new to the whole Linux thing in general.

Re: Overo Fire won't boot

This post was updated on .
I think he means you need to use the mlo-update file(instead of the mlo) which you can find under the pre-built images section on gumstix.net ..but still name it MLO on your boot section of the SD card
