SDCard SBC-SAMA5D36 production This archive contents everything you need to reprogram your SBC-SAMA5D36 (for all R2/R3/R4 boards) NAND Flash. You will need a micro SDCard of at least 1GBytes.

- Uncompress the image with this command line:
tar Jxvf archive.tar.xz output.img (for example: tar Jxvf sbc-sama5d36_prod.img.tar.xz sbc-sama5d36_prod.img)
(md5sum of extracted image: f9950709ab511860eb5764d56a7259f6 )
- Copy into a SDCard with this command line:
sudo dd if=sbc-sama5d36_prod.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4M
- Plug the SDCard into your SBC-SAMA5D36 and power on the board.
login: root Password: hico
- run ./

Normally, the update archive doesn't contain the newest root filesystem. To be sure we recommend to update the root file system after reprogramming. Updating of the root filesystem is described in the corresponding manual

WARNING: All the previous data in the NAND Flash will be erased! This also means that the U-Boot environment is reset. Please check MAC Addresses, serial number, board revision using "printenv" in U-Boot before updating to be able to set them during the update.

Beta Release RootFS This rootfile system is a beta release for the SBC-SamA5D36 with longterm maintenance/support (LTS) Kernel 4.9 and SystemD init system. It is working but most of the peripherals haven't been tested until now.
Use this rootfs at your own risk. Support for Revision 2 Boards will be dropped in near future. Also Debian Strech may be used in one of the following (beta-)releases.

How to Install:

- use a NFS share and start the beta without installing over NFS
- use NFS, mount the NAND-Flash by hand and extract the rootfs into the mounted NAND-Flash
- modify the original production SD-card to install the beta rootfs

Known Issues:

- update_rootfs isn't working
- a grep in /sys gives a segmentation fault
