Creating Image

Follow linux-user-guide to build kernel and uboot.
get uboot-spl.img and u-boot-dtb.img

tools/mkimage -n rk3288 -T rksd -d spl/u-boot-spl-dtb.bin uboot-spl.img

build boot.img
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=boot.img bs=1M count=128
sudo mkfs.fat boot.img
mkdir boot
sudo mount  boot.img boot
sudo cp zImage boot
sudo cp rk3288-fennec.dtb boot
sudo mkdir boot/extlinux
sudo cp extlinux.conf boot/extlinux
sudo umount boot

Download rootfs image and rename it

mv linaro-rootfs.img rootfs.img

Making a SD Card for updating

Download ramdisk source and build.

sh ./

Format SD card

chen@chen-HP-ProDesk-680-G1-TWR:~/work/linaro-alip/ramdisk/update$ sudo gdisk /dev/sdb
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.8

Partition table scan:
  MBR: protective
  BSD: not present
  APM: not present
  GPT: present

Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.

Command (? for help): o
This option deletes all partitions and creates a new protective MBR.
Proceed? (Y/N): y

Command (? for help): n
Partition number (1-128, default 1): 1
First sector (34-126613470, default = 2048) or {+-}size{KMGTP}: 8192
Last sector (8192-126613470, default = 126613470) or {+-}size{KMGTP}: 
Current type is 'Linux filesystem'
Hex code or GUID (L to show codes, Enter = 8300): 
Changed type of partition to 'Linux filesystem'

Command (? for help): w

Final checks complete. About to write GPT data. THIS WILL OVERWRITE EXISTING

Do you want to proceed? (Y/N): y
OK; writing new GUID partition table (GPT) to /dev/sdc.
Warning: The kernel is still using the old partition table.
The new table will be used at the next reboot.
The operation has completed successfully.
