-Ensure that you update your Versatile Express board firmware to the latest version. To update your VE board firmware, please follow the instructions below:
-
-* Clone the Linaro Versatile Express Firmware repository
-* Connect and mount your Versatile Express motherboard USB mass storage device to your PC
-* Remove all of the existing files from the USB mass storage device
-* Copy the Linaro Firmware to the board
-
-For example:
-
-bc. git clone git://git.linaro.org/arm/vexpress-firmware.git
-rm -rf /media/VEMSD/*
-cp -R vexpress-firmware/* /media/VEMSD
-
-Once you have finished copying the firmware over:
-
-* Safely unmount the Versatile Express motherboard
-* Reboot the Versatile Express board
-* At the ARM Boot Loader "Cmd> " prompt, type the following commands:
-
-bc. Cmd> flash
-Cmd> eraseall
-Cmd> exit
-Cmd> reboot
-
-* You may need to configure UEFI to boot from the image that you've created. See the "UEFI page":https://wiki.linaro.org/ARM/UEFI#Configure_UEFI on the Linaro Wiki for more details on configuring UEFI.
-* You may want to set /media/VEMSD/config.txt AUTORUN to TRUE to be make the CoreTile boot from power on.
-* For TC2, you should set the DIP swich closest to the black reset button down so that the Boot Monitor runs the boot script on power on.
-* "Versatile Express version 5.2":https://silver.arm.com/browse/VE052 contains the original firmware and documentation for the Versatile Express platform
-* Please contact "support@arm.com":mailto:support@arm.com for any issues related their firmware
-* Please "contact Linaro":http://www.linaro.org/engineering/getting-started/discuss for any issues related to booting this release on the Versatile Express platform.
-
-<br>
-
-h2. Using TC2 as an A7-only or A15-only board
-
-h3. Configure the Firmware
-
-It is possible to configure a TC2 development board as an A7 or A15 only board. To do this, the developer should modify the /SITE1/HBI0249A/board.txt file on the Versatile Express firmware drive, usually mounted at /media/VEMSD.
-
-The relevant register is CFGREG6 on pages 78-81 of the following TRM:
-"http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.ddi0503e/DDI0503E_v2p_ca15_a7_tc2_trm.pdf":http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.ddi0503e/DDI0503E_v2p_ca15_a7_tc2_trm.pdf
-
-You should add the following setting in board.txt:
-
-bc. SCC: 0x018 0x1FFFFFFF ; CFGRW6 - Reset register default (both clusters active)
-
- - or -
-
-bc. SCC: 0x018 0x00001FFF ; CFGRW6 - A15-only config
-
- - or -
-
-bc. SCC: 0x018 0x1FFFF000 ; CFGRW6 - A7-only config
-
-Remember to update TOTALSCCS, eg, if it was 32 and you've added one register, it becomes 33:
-
-bc. TOTALSCCS: 33 ;Total Number of SCC registers
-
-h3. Configure the Device Tree
-
-Once the hardware is booting as an A7 or A15 only board, next you need to remove the unused CPU nodes from the device tree.
-
-In the kernel source tree, edit arch/arm/boot/dts/vexpress-v2p-ca15_a7.dts and remove the unused CPUs from this section:
-
-bc. cpus {
- #address-cells = <1>;
- #size-cells = <0>;
-
-bc. cpu2: cpu@2 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
- reg = <0x100>;
- cluster = <&cluster1>;
- core = <&core2>;
- clock-frequency = <800000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control2>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu3: cpu@3 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
- reg = <0x101>;
- cluster = <&cluster1>;
- core = <&core3>;
- clock-frequency = <800000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control2>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu4: cpu@4 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
- reg = <0x102>;
- cluster = <&cluster1>;
- core = <&core4>;
- clock-frequency = <800000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control2>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu0: cpu@0 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
- reg = <0>;
- cluster = <&cluster0>;
- core = <&core0>;
- clock-frequency = <1000000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control1>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu1: cpu@1 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
- reg = <1>;
- cluster = <&cluster0>;
- core = <&core1>;
- clock-frequency = <1000000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control1>;
- };
- };
-
-Next, you need to remove the GIC entries that are associated with the removed CPUs, eg:
-
-bc. gic: interrupt-controller@2c001000 {
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a15-gic", "arm,cortex-a9-gic";
- #interrupt-cells = <3>;
- #address-cells = <0>;
- interrupt-controller;
- reg = <0 0x2c001000 0 0x1000>,
- <0 0x2c002000 0 0x1000>,
- <0 0x2c004000 0 0x2000>,
- <0 0x2c006000 0 0x2000>;
- interrupts = <1 9 0xf04>;
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@0 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <0>;
- cpu = <&cpu0>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@1 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <1>;
- cpu = <&cpu1>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@2 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <2>;
- cpu = <&cpu2>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@3 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <3>;
- cpu = <&cpu3>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@4 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <4>;
- cpu = <&cpu4>;
- };
- };
-
-
-Finally, you need to re-compile the DTS file and copy it to the SD card used to boot the system, eg:
-
-bc. make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- dtbs
-cp arch/arm/boot/dts/vexpress-v2p-ca15_a7.dtb /media/boot/v2p-ca15-tc2.dtb

-Linaro provides two methods for installing Linaro binary builds:
-
-# Using a pre-built image, which you can download
-# Assembling your own image using provided components
-
-h2. Pre-Installation Steps
-
-Before any installation begins, it is important that you ensure your Versatile Express board has the latest firmware and boot loader installed. Please check the "Firmware Update" tab on this page for the latest updates and installation instructions.
-
-h2. Using pre-built image
-
-h3. Prerequisites
-
-* Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit or newer on your desktop PC, which you can download from "www.ubuntu.com":http://www.ubuntu.com
-* 4GB SD card or larger
-* Latest firmware installed onto the Versatile Express. Please see "Firmware Update" tab
-* This release pre-built image (vexpress.img.bz2), which you can downloaded from the above list of artifacts or just click "here":http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress-lsk/vexpress.img.bz2
-
-h3. Installation Steps
-
-* Unzip the downloaded pre-built image
-* Insert SD card into your PC and note the assigned @'/dev/sdX'@
-
-bc. dmesg
-SDCARD=/dev/sdX # sdcard found from dmesg above
-bzcat vexpress.img.bz2 | sudo dd bs=64k of=$SDCARD
-
-When the image is created, skip down to the section "Booting the image".
-
-*Note:* Windows users may use the "Image Writer for Windows":https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download
-
-<hr>
-
-h2. Building a custom image using pre-built components.
-
-Sometimes, you may wish to build your own custom image for a Versatile Express. Perhaps you wish to use a more recent snapshot of the "hardware pack":https://wiki.linaro.org/HardwarePacks or take the latest Android build. Whatever the reason, you will want to use the "Linaro Image Tools":https://wiki.linaro.org/Linaro-Image-Tools to create a custom image.
-
-Using components to generate the image will yield the same functionality found in the pre-built image of the same release.
-
-h3. Prerequisites
-
-* Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit or newer on your desktop PC, which you can download from "www.ubuntu.com":http://www.ubuntu.com
-* Download Artifacts from above or use the following command in your terminal
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress-lsk/boot.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress-lsk/system.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress-lsk/userdata.tar.bz2
-
-* Download "Linaro image tools":https://wiki.linaro.org/Linaro-Image-Tools which can be obtained in two ways:
-
-** Method 1: Install them from the Linaro Image Tools "PPA":https://launchpad.net/~linaro-maintainers/+archive/tools
-
-bc. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linaro-maintainers/tools
-sudo apt-get update
-sudo apt-get install linaro-image-tools
-
-** Method 2: Building from source
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/components/platform/linaro-image-tools/linaro-image-tools-${YYYY}.${MM}.tar.gz
-
-* Insert SD card and note the assigned @'/dev/sdX'@ or @'/dev/mmcblk0'@
-
-bc. dmesg | less
-
-Look for a line that looks like the following at the end of the log
-
-@[288582.790722] sdc: sdc1 sdc2 sdc3 sdc4 <sdc5 sdc6 >@
-
-Or, if your machine uses @'/dev/mmcblkX'@, you may see a line line this:
-
-@[10770.938042] mmcblk0: p1 p2 p3 p4 < p5 p6 >@
-
-*WARNING:* In the next step, make sure you use @/dev/"whatever you see above"@. *You can erase your hard drive* with the wrong parameter.
-
-* Create media
-
-bc. linaro-android-media-create --mmc /dev/sdX --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-
-h2. Booting the image
-
-After the media create tool has finished executing, remove the SD card from your PC and insert it into the Versatile Express board.
-
-Before you can boot the image you will need to install the UEFI boot loader into NOR flash and update the Versatile MMC card configuration files. The instructions on the Firmware Update tab provide information on how to do this and how to configure UEFI to specify the SD card as a boot device.
-
-h2. Advanced Setup for Benchmarking
-
-Advanced users of Versatile Express may wish to perform benchmarking tests on the board.
-
-Booting with the root filesystem on a USB mass storage device is more efficient both in terms of electrical power and processing speed. Unfortunately, UEFI does not support booting the kernel from USB. In order to achieve this, we recommend that you install the kernel onto SD card and the root filesystem to USB mass storage.
-
-The instructions below will create two identical images: one on SD card and one on USB mass storage. The user is able to choose which device the kernel uses for the root filesystem by adding a command line parameter. By default, the android kernel will expect the root filesystem to be read from the SD card. Adding the parameter "androidboot.hardware=arm-versatileexpress-usb" to the command line will over-ride this behaviour and instruct the kernel to read the root filesystem from USB.
-
-Before following these instructions, ensure that you have both an SD card and a USB mass storage device of at least 4GB inserted into your Linux machine.
-
-h3. Using a pre-built image
-
-Follow the instructions above for creating an image on an SD card. Then repeat the instructions using the device path for your USB device. For example:
-
-bc. dmesg
-SDCARD=/dev/sdX # sdcard found from dmesg above
-USBMS=/dev/sdY # USB device found from dmesg above
-bzcat vexpress.img.bz2 | sudo dd bs=64k of=$SDCARD
-bzcat vexpress.img.bz2 | sudo dd bs=64k of=$USBMS
-
-h3. Using linaro-android-media-create
-
-First the user should run linaro-android-media-create as described above. Then run it again with a USB mass storage device. This will create two release images: one on the SD card and the other on the USB device.
-
-For example:
-
-bc. dmesg
-SDCARD=/dev/sdX # sdcard found from dmesg above
-USBMS=/dev/sdY # USB device found from dmesg above
-linaro-android-media-create --mmc $SDCARD --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-linaro-android-media-create --mmc $USBMS --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-
-h3. Booting your system with the advanced setup
-
-Insert the SD card into the card slot on the Versatile Express board and insert the USB device into one of the USB device slots on the board. The USB slots are located below the ethernet port on the rear panel.
-
-Boot the board using the standard UEFI firmware setup as described in the Firmware Update tab.
-
-When UEFI starts, you will need to interrupt the boot countdown and edit the configuration to add the following text to the end of the kernel commandline:
-
-bc. androidboot.hardware=arm-versatileexpress-usb
-
-Instructions for updating the UEFI configuration can be found on the "UEFI wiki":https://wiki.linaro.org/ARM/UEFI#Updating_your_UEFI_Configuration

-
-There are multiple ways you can get the latest Linaro Image Tools:
-
-** Method 1: Install them from the Linaro Image Tools "PPA":https://launchpad.net/~linaro-maintainers/+archive/tools
-
-bc. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linaro-maintainers/tools
-sudo apt-get update
-sudo apt-get install linaro-image-tools
-
-** Method 2: Build from source
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/components/platform/linaro-image-tools/linaro-image-tools-${YYYY}.${MM}.tar.gz
-
-h2. Create a 2GB image file
-
-Fast Models will only deal with file systems up to 2GB in size, however the Linaro pre-built image for Android requires a 4GB filesystem. Therefore, we will build our own image using the pre-built artifacts (displayed above)
-
-The following command downloads all the Android OS components necessary to make up a complete Android image.
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress-lsk/boot.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress-lsk/system.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress-lsk/userdata.tar.bz2
-
-Using the @linaro-android-media-create@, which is part of the @linaro-image-tools@, you can combine all the components into a single image.
-
-bc. linaro-android-media-create --image-file linaro.img --image-size 2000M --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-tar jxvf boot.tar.bz2
-
-h2. Run Fast Models with UEFI
-
-The instructions for running UEFI on the various models are very similar. The two differences are the UEFI binary and the model used. Follow the model specific instruction below, then proceed to the generic instructions in the section "Run the model with UEFI". Make sure that the model binary is on your path, or alter the MODEL variable definition to include the path to the binary.
-
-h3. Run A9x4 model with UEFI
-
-bc. MODEL=FVP_VE_Cortex-A9_MPx4
-UEFI=boot/rtsm/uefi_rtsm_ve-ca9x4.bin

-Ensure that you update your Versatile Express board firmware to the latest version. To update your VE board firmware, please follow the instructions below:
-
-* Clone the Linaro Versatile Express Firmware repository
-* Connect and mount your Versatile Express motherboard USB mass storage device to your PC
-* Remove all of the existing files from the USB mass storage device
-* Copy the Linaro Firmware to the board
-
-For example:
-
-bc. git clone git://git.linaro.org/arm/vexpress-firmware.git
-rm -rf /media/VEMSD/*
-cp -R vexpress-firmware/* /media/VEMSD
-
-Once you have finished copying the firmware over:
-
-* Safely unmount the Versatile Express motherboard
-* Reboot the Versatile Express board
-* At the ARM Boot Loader "Cmd> " prompt, type the following commands:
-
-bc. Cmd> flash
-Cmd> eraseall
-Cmd> exit
-Cmd> reboot
-
-* You may need to configure UEFI to boot from the image that you've created. See the "UEFI page":https://wiki.linaro.org/ARM/UEFI#Configure_UEFI on the Linaro Wiki for more details on configuring UEFI.
-* You may want to set /media/VEMSD/config.txt AUTORUN to TRUE to be make the CoreTile boot from power on.
-* For TC2, you should set the DIP swich closest to the black reset button down so that the Boot Monitor runs the boot script on power on.
-* "Versatile Express version 5.2":https://silver.arm.com/browse/VE052 contains the original firmware and documentation for the Versatile Express platform
-* Please contact "support@arm.com":mailto:support@arm.com for any issues related their firmware
-* Please "contact Linaro":http://www.linaro.org/engineering/getting-started/discuss for any issues related to booting this release on the Versatile Express platform.
-
-<br>
-
-h2. Using TC2 as an A7-only or A15-only board
-
-h3. Configure the Firmware
-
-It is possible to configure a TC2 development board as an A7 or A15 only board. To do this, the developer should modify the /SITE1/HBI0249A/board.txt file on the Versatile Express firmware drive, usually mounted at /media/VEMSD.
-
-The relevant register is CFGREG6 on pages 78-81 of the following TRM:
-"http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.ddi0503e/DDI0503E_v2p_ca15_a7_tc2_trm.pdf":http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.ddi0503e/DDI0503E_v2p_ca15_a7_tc2_trm.pdf
-
-You should add the following setting in board.txt:
-
-bc. SCC: 0x018 0x1FFFFFFF ; CFGRW6 - Reset register default (both clusters active)
-
- - or -
-
-bc. SCC: 0x018 0x00001FFF ; CFGRW6 - A15-only config
-
- - or -
-
-bc. SCC: 0x018 0x1FFFF000 ; CFGRW6 - A7-only config
-
-Remember to update TOTALSCCS, eg, if it was 32 and you've added one register, it becomes 33:
-
-bc. TOTALSCCS: 33 ;Total Number of SCC registers
-
-h3. Configure the Device Tree
-
-Once the hardware is booting as an A7 or A15 only board, next you need to remove the unused CPU nodes from the device tree.
-
-In the kernel source tree, edit arch/arm/boot/dts/vexpress-v2p-ca15_a7.dts and remove the unused CPUs from this section:
-
-bc. cpus {
- #address-cells = <1>;
- #size-cells = <0>;
-
-bc. cpu2: cpu@2 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
- reg = <0x100>;
- cluster = <&cluster1>;
- core = <&core2>;
- clock-frequency = <800000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control2>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu3: cpu@3 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
- reg = <0x101>;
- cluster = <&cluster1>;
- core = <&core3>;
- clock-frequency = <800000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control2>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu4: cpu@4 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
- reg = <0x102>;
- cluster = <&cluster1>;
- core = <&core4>;
- clock-frequency = <800000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control2>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu0: cpu@0 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
- reg = <0>;
- cluster = <&cluster0>;
- core = <&core0>;
- clock-frequency = <1000000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control1>;
- };
-
-bc. cpu1: cpu@1 {
- device_type = "cpu";
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
- reg = <1>;
- cluster = <&cluster0>;
- core = <&core1>;
- clock-frequency = <1000000000>;
- cci-control-port = <&cci_control1>;
- };
- };
-
-Next, you need to remove the GIC entries that are associated with the removed CPUs, eg:
-
-bc. gic: interrupt-controller@2c001000 {
- compatible = "arm,cortex-a15-gic", "arm,cortex-a9-gic";
- #interrupt-cells = <3>;
- #address-cells = <0>;
- interrupt-controller;
- reg = <0 0x2c001000 0 0x1000>,
- <0 0x2c002000 0 0x1000>,
- <0 0x2c004000 0 0x2000>,
- <0 0x2c006000 0 0x2000>;
- interrupts = <1 9 0xf04>;
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@0 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <0>;
- cpu = <&cpu0>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@1 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <1>;
- cpu = <&cpu1>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@2 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <2>;
- cpu = <&cpu2>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@3 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <3>;
- cpu = <&cpu3>;
- };
-
-bc. gic-cpuif@4 {
- compatible = "arm,gic-cpuif";
- cpuif-id = <4>;
- cpu = <&cpu4>;
- };
- };
-
-
-Finally, you need to re-compile the DTS file and copy it to the SD card used to boot the system, eg:
-
-bc. make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- dtbs
-cp arch/arm/boot/dts/vexpress-v2p-ca15_a7.dtb /media/boot/v2p-ca15-tc2.dtb

-Linaro provides two methods for installing Linaro binary builds:
-
-# Using a pre-built image, which you can download
-# Assembling your own image using provided components
-
-h2. Pre-Installation Steps
-
-Before any installation begins, it is important that you ensure your Versatile Express board has the latest firmware and boot loader installed. Please check the "Firmware Update" tab on this page for the latest updates and installation instructions.
-
-h2. Using pre-built image
-
-h3. Prerequisites
-
-* Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit or newer on your desktop PC, which you can download from "www.ubuntu.com":http://www.ubuntu.com
-* 4GB SD card or larger
-* Latest firmware installed onto the Versatile Express. Please see "Firmware Update" tab
-* This release pre-built image (vexpress.img.bz2), which you can downloaded from the above list of artifacts or just click "here":http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress/vexpress.img.bz2
-
-h3. Installation Steps
-
-* Unzip the downloaded pre-built image
-* Insert SD card into your PC and note the assigned @'/dev/sdX'@
-
-bc. dmesg
-SDCARD=/dev/sdX # sdcard found from dmesg above
-bzcat vexpress.img.bz2 | sudo dd bs=64k of=$SDCARD
-
-When the image is created, skip down to the section "Booting the image".
-
-*Note:* Windows users may use the "Image Writer for Windows":https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download
-
-<hr>
-
-h2. Building a custom image using pre-built components.
-
-Sometimes, you may wish to build your own custom image for a Versatile Express. Perhaps you wish to use a more recent snapshot of the "hardware pack":https://wiki.linaro.org/HardwarePacks or take the latest Android build. Whatever the reason, you will want to use the "Linaro Image Tools":https://wiki.linaro.org/Linaro-Image-Tools to create a custom image.
-
-Using components to generate the image will yield the same functionality found in the pre-built image of the same release.
-
-h3. Prerequisites
-
-* Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit or newer on your desktop PC, which you can download from "www.ubuntu.com":http://www.ubuntu.com
-* Download Artifacts from above or use the following command in your terminal
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress/boot.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress/system.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress/userdata.tar.bz2
-
-* Download "Linaro image tools":https://wiki.linaro.org/Linaro-Image-Tools which can be obtained in two ways:
-
-** Method 1: Install them from the Linaro Image Tools "PPA":https://launchpad.net/~linaro-maintainers/+archive/tools
-
-bc. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linaro-maintainers/tools
-sudo apt-get update
-sudo apt-get install linaro-image-tools

-** Method 2: Building from source
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/components/platform/linaro-image-tools/linaro-image-tools-${YYYY}.${MM}.tar.gz
-
-* Insert SD card and note the assigned @'/dev/sdX'@ or @'/dev/mmcblk0'@
-
-bc. dmesg | less
-
-Look for a line that looks like the following at the end of the log
-
-@[288582.790722] sdc: sdc1 sdc2 sdc3 sdc4 <sdc5 sdc6 >@
-
-Or, if your machine uses @'/dev/mmcblkX'@, you may see a line line this:

-
-* Create media
-
-bc. linaro-android-media-create --mmc /dev/sdX --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-
-h2. Booting the image
-
-After the media create tool has finished executing, remove the SD card from your PC and insert it into the Versatile Express board.
-
-Before you can boot the image you will need to install the UEFI boot loader into NOR flash and update the Versatile MMC card configuration files. The instructions on the Firmware Update tab provide information on how to do this and how to configure UEFI to specify the SD card as a boot device.
-
-h2. Advanced Setup for Benchmarking
-
-Advanced users of Versatile Express may wish to perform benchmarking tests on the board.
-
-Booting with the root filesystem on a USB mass storage device is more efficient both in terms of electrical power and processing speed. Unfortunately, UEFI does not support booting the kernel from USB. In order to achieve this, we recommend that you install the kernel onto SD card and the root filesystem to USB mass storage.
-
-The instructions below will create two identical images: one on SD card and one on USB mass storage. The user is able to choose which device the kernel uses for the root filesystem by adding a command line parameter. By default, the android kernel will expect the root filesystem to be read from the SD card. Adding the parameter "androidboot.hardware=arm-versatileexpress-usb" to the command line will over-ride this behaviour and instruct the kernel to read the root filesystem from USB.
-
-Before following these instructions, ensure that you have both an SD card and a USB mass storage device of at least 4GB inserted into your Linux machine.
-
-h3. Using a pre-built image
-
-Follow the instructions above for creating an image on an SD card. Then repeat the instructions using the device path for your USB device. For example:
-
-bc. dmesg
-SDCARD=/dev/sdX # sdcard found from dmesg above
-USBMS=/dev/sdY # USB device found from dmesg above
-bzcat vexpress.img.bz2 | sudo dd bs=64k of=$SDCARD
-bzcat vexpress.img.bz2 | sudo dd bs=64k of=$USBMS
-
-h3. Using linaro-android-media-create
-
-First the user should run linaro-android-media-create as described above. Then run it again with a USB mass storage device. This will create two release images: one on the SD card and the other on the USB device.
-
-For example:
-
-bc. dmesg
-SDCARD=/dev/sdX # sdcard found from dmesg above
-USBMS=/dev/sdY # USB device found from dmesg above
-linaro-android-media-create --mmc $SDCARD --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-linaro-android-media-create --mmc $USBMS --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-
-h3. Booting your system with the advanced setup
-
-Insert the SD card into the card slot on the Versatile Express board and insert the USB device into one of the USB device slots on the board. The USB slots are located below the ethernet port on the rear panel.
-
-Boot the board using the standard UEFI firmware setup as described in the Firmware Update tab.
-
-When UEFI starts, you will need to interrupt the boot countdown and edit the configuration to add the following text to the end of the kernel commandline:
-
-bc. androidboot.hardware=arm-versatileexpress-usb
-
-Instructions for updating the UEFI configuration can be found on the "UEFI wiki":https://wiki.linaro.org/ARM/UEFI#Updating_your_UEFI_Configuration

-This release was boot tested on FVP A15x4 and A15x4-A7x4 models. No rigorous testing was carried out. This build is expected to run on other models. No UEFI binary exists for A15-A7 models; in this case, the A15 binary can be used, but the A7 CPUs will not be available
-
-h2. Prerequisites
-
-* Install the model(s) you wish to run. You must have a valid license and the environment set up to run models
-* Install "Linaro image tools":https://wiki.linaro.org/Linaro-Image-Tools
-
-h3. Install Linaro Image Tools
-
-Linaro Image Tools contain scripts that allow you to combine multiple components into a single Android image. The components are:
-
-* boot.tar.bz2 - contains the kernel and boot loaders
-* system.tar.bz2 - contains the entire system files and general OS
-* userdata.tar.bz2 - contains sample data and tests
-
-There are multiple ways you can get the latest Linaro Image Tools:
-
-** Method 1: Install them from the Linaro Image Tools "PPA":https://launchpad.net/~linaro-maintainers/+archive/tools
-
-bc. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linaro-maintainers/tools
-sudo apt-get update
-sudo apt-get install linaro-image-tools
-
-** Method 2: Build from source
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/components/platform/linaro-image-tools/linaro-image-tools-${YYYY}.${MM}.tar.gz
-
-h2. Create a 2GB image file
-
-Fast Models will only deal with file systems up to 2GB in size, however the Linaro pre-built image for Android requires a 4GB filesystem. Therefore, we will build our own image using the pre-built artifacts (displayed above)
-
-The following command downloads all the Android OS components necessary to make up a complete Android image.
-
-bc. wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress/boot.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress/system.tar.bz2
-wget http://releases.linaro.org/latest/android/vexpress/userdata.tar.bz2
-
-Using the @linaro-android-media-create@, which is part of the @linaro-image-tools@, you can combine all the components into a single image.
-
-bc. linaro-android-media-create --image-file linaro.img --image-size 2000M --dev vexpress --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2
-tar jxvf boot.tar.bz2
-
-h2. Run Fast Models with UEFI
-
-The instructions for running UEFI on the various models are very similar. The two differences are the UEFI binary and the model used. Follow the model specific instruction below, then proceed to the generic instructions in the section "Run the model with UEFI". Make sure that the model binary is on your path, or alter the MODEL variable definition to include the path to the binary.
-
-h3. Run A9x4 model with UEFI
-
-bc. MODEL=FVP_VE_Cortex-A9_MPx4
-UEFI=boot/rtsm/uefi_rtsm_ve-ca9x4.bin
-
-h3. Run A15x1 model with UEFI
-
-bc. MODEL=FVP_VE_Cortex-A15x1
-UEFI=boot/rtsm/uefi_rtsm_ve-ca15.bin
-
-h3. Run A15x2 model with UEFI
-
-bc. MODEL=FVP_VE_Cortex-A15x2
-UEFI=boot/rtsm/uefi_rtsm_ve-ca15.bin
-
-h3. Run A15x4 model with UEFI
-
-bc. MODEL=FVP_VE_Cortex-A15x4
-UEFI=boot/rtsm/uefi_rtsm_ve-ca15.bin
-
-h3. Run the model with UEFI
-
-bc. touch uefi-vars.fd # create the file if it doesn't already exist
-
-bc. $MODEL \
--C motherboard.flashloader0.fname=$UEFI \
--C motherboard.flashloader1.fname=uefi-vars.fd \
--C motherboard.flashloader1.fnameWrite=uefi-vars.fd \
--C motherboard.mmc.p_mmc_file=linaro.img \
--C motherboard.pl011_uart0.unbuffered_output=true \
--C motherboard.smsc_91c111.enabled=1 \
--C motherboard.hostbridge.userNetworking=1
