Freescale® i.MX 6 based modules(Apalis iMX6 & Colibri iMX6) Linux Release

The release contains: 

  • U-Boot 2014.04 boot loader
  • Linux 3.10.17 kernel, based on Freescale's BSP release imx_3.10.17_1.0.1_ga and patches from Boundary Devices

  • Angstrom/OpenEmbedded/Yocto 2014.06/daisy/1.6 based root file system, using LXDE desktop environment

  Notable updates in this release: 

  • Linux kernel: fix USB low-speed issue hack
  • Linux user-space:
    • fix fw_setenv
    • fix resizefs
    • integrate NVIDIA L4T R16.5 (fixes gstreamer memory leak)
  • Update script: fix flash_eth update scripts 

NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 based module (Colibri T20) Linux Release
