While flashing the hikey960 board to ARM-TF+Android, I am getting “Couldn’t erase image: Not Found” error.

Couldn't erase image:  Not Found

I am using prm_ptable.img, sec-xloader.img, l-loader.img, fip.img, boot.img, cache.img etc as told in the github page for flashing hikey960 for ARM-TF.

And If I ignore this error and try to boot the Hikey960 I am getting the below error,

[Bds]Booting Boot from SD

add-symbol-file /home/dhiman/colossus5/simAsTpm/edk2/Build/HiKey960/DEBUG_GCC5/AARCH64/EmbeddedPkg/Application/AndroidBoot/AndroidBootApp/DEBUG/AndroidBootApp.dll 0xB9B07000

Failed to get attached FDT from the end of raw kernel: Invalid Parameter

I guess the problem is with the ptable I am using. I tried with hisi-ptable.img (generated from android hikey960-userdebug build) which yields no better result. What could be the problem?

But the l-loader currently unable to create the userdata partition. Below is the structure for prm_ptable.img.

Do you have any idea how to fix this problem?

l-loader : testing/hikey960_v1.2

OpenPlatfomrPkg : testing/hikey960_v1.3.4
uefi-tools : master (pulled on August 31 2017)
edk2 : testing/hikey960_v2.5

These are the git branches I am using to build ATF for Android on Hikey960 board.

You’re probably using the ptable for linux. Try the one for android, i.e. ptable-aosp-32g.img.


#3

Hello Victor(@vchong),

I was using the prm_ptable.img file that is written in https://github.com/ARM-software/arm-trustedfirmware/blob/master/docs/plat/hikey960.rst.

If so I would suggest a revision in the github README page.


#4

@dhiman You’re right. The page bit-rotted a bit. Care to send in a Pull Request to https://github.com/ARM-software/arm-trustedfirmware?

@hzhuang1 fyi above


#5

Hello Victor (@vchong),

Does not look like a git repository. Neither the webpage exists (404).


#6

Oops sorry. I copied your typo directly. Should be https://github.com/ARM-software/arm-trusted-firmware.


#7

Hello Victor (@vchong), Haojian(@hzhuang1)

ptable-aosp-32g.img worked fine with the Hikey960.
