Good Day.
We are developing AP Memory Tester using Hikey 970.

Please help and discuss with below issues, It will be helpful for us.


1. Issue and status

A. Initial Issue : BOOT Fail has been occurred

                   i.         Therefore, we run “Recovery and Image Download” which means resetting.

B. Status : We faced issue from “Bootloader Write” in Recovery Mode.

                   i.         ./sec_usb_xloader.img (Done)

                  ii.         ./sec_usb_xloader.img (Done)

                 iii.         ./l-loader.bin (Failed)

2. Our question

A. We would like to ask those 3 kind of Image’s role and the location for download

                   i.         ./sec_usb_xloader.img (Done)

                  ii.         ./sec_usb_xloader.img (Done)

                 iii.         ./l-loader.bin (Failed)

B. Kindly review that this issue has any relationship with Hardware (Main point for this type of issue)

                   i.         ./sec_usb_xloader.img (Done) Hi3660 : 0x00,022,000

                  ii.         ./sec_usb_xloader.img (Done) Hi3660 : 0x60,049,000

                 iii.         ./l-loader.bin (Failed) Hi3660 : 0x16,800,000 -> What does this address mean? (It seems that the hardware part of this address is wrong)

Good Day.

We are devloping memory tester using hikey 970.

There are bootloader image download issue

Please see our pictures below.

  1. Bootloader Image Download
  • sec_usb_xloader.img (Done)
  • sec_usb_xloader2.img (Done)
  • l-loder.bin (Done)
  1. Driver Disconnected and Reboot

  2. There are not any response from Hikey 970.

We think that this issue was caused by hardware (We have modified Hikey 970 Board)

Thank you

Board based on the Kirin 970 - HI3670 Application Processor

Looks like you are working in VirtualBox. Many users have reported problems related to the the USB disconnect/reconnects that happen during the recovery process. After the reboot does the Hikey970 connect to the physical machine or the VM?
