Subject: [PATCH] ARM: i.MX8MP: bbu: use correct offset for eMMC boot partition
Date: Thu, 26 Aug 2021 18:57:18 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

According to the i.MX8MP RM rev3, the bootrom expects the bootloader to
sit directly at the start of the eMMC boot partition.

The 32K offset is only valid for eMMC user partitions and SD. Reflect
this in the code. This should allow changing the update handler for
the i.MX8MP-EVK from using the eMMC user area to using the eMMC boot
partition. This isn't done here, because the change wasn't tested
on actual hardware.

Signed-off-by: Ahmad Fatoum <>
Change is untested. Would be great if someone can confirm on actual HW.
(And adjust the EVK boot handler)
