Flashing the AT91SAM9263-EK Board

In the previous post, we learned how to create an OpenEmbedded (OE) workspace that can successfully build images for the Atmel AT91SAM2963-EK board.  As it turns out, the default in OE is to build dataflash images for the AT91SAM9263-EK board, not nandflash.  If your particular board uses dataflash for its storage, then you’re all set!  But if your board is like mine and uses nandflash, we have a little more work to do first.

This post will focus on tweaking the OE tree to build nandflash images for the AT91SAM9263-EK and then finally uploading those images to the board.  The result (with either dataflash or nandflash) will be to have Angstrom 2008.1 booting on the board. Continue reading
