The Das U-Boot, also known as U-Boot, is a firmware/bootloader for the hardware platforms, which is widely used in embedded designs. The U-Boot supports common processor architectures such as ARM, Power Architecture, Microprocessor without Interlocked Pipeline Stages (MIPS) and x86. In addition to the bootstrapping functionality, the U-Boot also supports other features that are part of the open source project (available under General Public LicenseGPL), such as device drivers, networking and file systems support utilities that assist board bring up and testing.

The U-Boot firmware is ported to operate on the i.MX applications processors and development boards. However, the customers should get adapted to some key areas of the source code that makes the U-Boot firmware to operate on a new hardware platform based on the i.MX processor. In this application note, the reader is guided through the areas of the i.MX35 3-stack U-Boot source code where the adaptation is required.
