At this time, no special builds of U-Boot are required to perform these operations on the supported hardware.In some cases we support loading SPL and U-Boot over the network because of ROM support.Use the following table to determine what defconfig to use to configure with: Note that not all possible build targets for a given platform are listed here as the community has additional build targets that are not supported by TI.
We assume that a GCC-based toolchain has already been installed and the serial port for the board has been configured.
We also assume that a Linux Kernel has already been built (or has been provided) as well as an appropriate filesystem image.
That way if you are working with multiple configuration targets it is very easy to know which folder contains the u-boot binaries that you are interested in.
We strongly recommend using the toolchain that came with the Linux Core release that corresponds to this U-Boot release.
First of all, you will need to get a copy of the dfu-util program installed on your host.
