Nice,can you look if partition config is now 0x48 and if this stays active after reboot/preloader-flash?


(peter.r.volkov) #62

Yes. It is persistent. System loads well after poweroff, and Boot configuration bytes aka PARTITION_CONFIG == 0x48

Ok,thank you,thats an alternate way for users having problems entering uboot-console (missing uart cable or similar) and want to use emmc. Will add this to my wiki

Concerning booting from EMMC I see the setting of the flash be changed to writeable. My question is, after the image is programmed, can I set the flash back to be read only or are there log files that need to be written to the flash?

So my question is, shouldn’t there be a

echo 1 > /sys/block/mmcblk1boot0/force_ro

at the end?

Regards,

Günter

Don’t need to make it to be read-only, because the setting is not persistent.
