SW Setup

Prepare SD card

  1. Insert SD card to Host PC
  2. Install Win32 Disk Imager and 7-Zip
  3. Extract core-image-weston-release-h3ulcb.wic.xz using 7-Zip
    note: If you use R-Car Starter Kit Pro(M3), please use core-image-weston-release-m3ulcb.wic.xz
  4. Flash .wic file to SD card using Win32 Disk Imager.
  5. Open drive which name is 'data' using windows explorer.
  6. Copy gfx_mmp.tar.bz2 to 'data' drive.

Flashing IPL(Firmware)

  1. Install Teraterm
  2. Power off the Boards
  3. Connect Host PC and the Board with Micro-USB cable.
  4. Open Teraterm.
    Configure serial port
    Open "Serial port" which is located in "Setup" menu, and configure such as following:
    Port: COMx can be checked using Windows Device Manager.
    Baud rate: 115200
    Data: 8bit
    Parity: none
    Stop: 1bit
    Flow control: none
    Power on the board and interrupt autoboot on U-boot by pressing any key.
    If interrupting autoboot is succeeded, "=>" is shown in Teraterm.
  5. Open "Macro" which is located in "Control" menu.
    select "binary\ipl\renesas-bsp-rom-writer_64bit\starterkit\windows\yocto_writer.ttl"
  6. Follow the instruction shown in console.
    Click "OK"
    Select Yocto version(v5.9.0), then click "Yes"
    Select SoC which is equipped on your board, then click "Yes".
    Select Mode, then click "Yes".
    Select binary/ipl folder, then click "OK".
    Click "Yes", "Yes".
    Wait a little, select write mode, then click "Yes".
    Please wait that writing U-boot is done.

Booting Yocto

  1. power off the board
  2. Insert Micro SD card to the board
  3. Power on the board and interrupt autoboot on U-boot by pressing any key.
  4. Execute following command for set up U-boot:
    setenv ethaddr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
    setenv bootargs 'rw root=/dev/mmcblk1p1 rootwait'
    setenv dtb 'r8a77951-ulcb-ccpf-sk.dtb'
    setenv load_kernel_sd 'ext2load mmc 0:1 0x48080000 /boot/Image'
    setenv load_dtb_sd 'ext2load mmc 0:1 0x48000000 /boot/${dtb}'
    setenv bootcmd 'run load_kernel_sd; run load_dtb_sd; booti 0x48080000 - 0x48000000'
    Input your board's mac address instead of "xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx ".
    dtb is changed by Starter Kit version. Please refer to following table.
    Please refer to the following page to check your Starter kit version:
  5. Execute "reset" command on U-boot to reset the board
  6. Yocto will be booted automatically
    The board reboots automatically for the first booting Yocto.
    This is caused by installing GFX/MMP package.
    After the second boot, automatic reboot is not occurred.
Board name SoC version Type Name DTB file

U-boot doesn't boot.

  • Please check the Dip switch(SW1=ON, SW6=All ON) on R-Car Starter Kit(Not CCPF-SK board).
See also :
  • If U-Boot doesn't boot in spite that SW1/SW6 is correct, please flash the IPL(firmware) again.

  • If U-Boot doesn't boot after following above instruction, the board may be broken.
So please try other board.
