2014R1 Release Notes

7 Jul 2014

This release is based on the 2013R1 release and built by the 2014R1-RC2 GNU toolchain for Blackfin to address the changes in the 2014R1 toolchain release. The upstream version of u-boot is the same as that in 2013R1. Only 1 bug “Enable command bootldr to boot ldr images on BF60x” is fixed in contrast to 2013R1. No complete testing log is available.

Build Environment

While we would love to test every environment out there that you may use, we'll document the platforms we actively develop and test on. Refer to the documentation for setting up your system.

Development is actively done with:

  • Toolchain: Blackfin Toolchain (GCC-4.3.5)
  • Build Platform: Ubuntu Desktop 12.04
  • Target board: BF537-STAMP, BF548-EZKIT and BF698-EZKIT boards


File names generally take the form u-boot-<board>-<boot mode>-<version>.filetype.

Each board has one tarball which contains all of the release images for that board. For information on which file to use, see the binaries and boot modes pages. Additionally, a u-boot.elf and init.elf file are included to facilitate booting via JTAG.

All files are raw binary. That means you use them as is. They are most certainly not in the hex or srec format. Alternative file formats are no longer provided as part of the release. If you really need such a file, you will need to convert it yourself.
