SBL (Slim Boot Loader) on UP Xtreme

tallutallu New Member Posts: 2

Hi There

According to this page
https://slimbootloader.github.io/supported-hardware/index.html
SBL can be used on UP Xtreme board.

According to this page
https://slimbootloader.github.io/supported-hardware/whl-crb.html#flashing
SBL can be flashed on UP Xtreme via CN18 connector.

However in UP Xtreme manual
https://up-shop.org/media/productattach/u/p/up_xtreme_manual_4th_ed_0901a.pdf
There is no CN18 connector.

My questions are:
1) Does SBL really works (well) with UP Xtreme board?
2) How can SBL (or any other firmware) be flashed on UP Xtreme board?

Thanks,
Tal

    CN18 is the connector behind the stacked HDMI/DP connector, the pin 1 is the one marked with the little triangle.

    You can refer to this page for the correct wiring with Dediprog: https://wiki.up-community.org/BIOS_chip_flashing_on_UP_Squared
    The connector and pinout is the same as on UP Squared.

    Thanks for the notification about the missing information on the UP Xtreme manual, we will review and follow up with an updated version.

    1) We haven't tested as it was done by Slimbootloader developers, you can check directly on the official github
    2) Using dediprog with the procedure described on the slimbootloader page.

    Please consider that the process can brick your system if not done properly and the system won't be covered by warranty for such issues.
