Omap Flash Installer

Introduction -- This document contains a description of a tool – OMAPFlash – that can be used to transfer binary images from a host PC to an OMAP based target platform. The tool consists of four main components: - a host application, called OMAPFlash Host - a “second” loader, called OMAPFlash Second, specific to the platform with which OMAPFlash is used - drivers for the memory devices of the platform - a USB driver for the host PC, compatible with the OMAP device in use The tool makes use of the OMAP ROM code mechanism for peripheral boot from either UART or USB to transfer OMAPFlash Second to the internal memory of the OMAP device. Using OMAPFlash Second a device driver is then transferred to SDRAM for the memory device to which the binary transfer is to take place. Finally a binary file can be transferred through OMAPFlash Second and the device driver to the memory device itself.

The communication protocol used between OMAPFlash Host and OMAPFlash Second is based on the Fastboot protocol used in the Android community – a simple text based command-response protocol. Source code is available under a BSD-style license and may be used and modified for other platforms freely as long as the license terms are observed. -- Installation -- OMAPFlash comes as an installer for the Windows XP platform. Run the installer executable, OMAPFlashInstaller.msi, to install to the hard-drive of the host PC.

In some cases the installer will display a warning that a DLL has failed to register properly – should this happen, accept this and press continue to complete the installation (it will not cause the tool to fail). The program is installed to the folder ‘c: Program Files Texas Instruments OMAPFlash’ and scripts are designed to be run from this path. Uninstalling OMAPFlash can be done through the Windows XP control panel (Start – Control Panel – Add or Remove Programs). Select OMAPFlash and press ‘Remove’.

-- Connections -- The physical connection between the target platform and the host PC can be either UART or USB based and the actual connector to use will depend on the platform. In general the user manual for the platform should be consulted in order to identify the connectors to use for peripheral boot.

-- Drivers -- When using the software with a USB connection, drivers will need to be installed. This should only be necessary when connecting the board to the host PC for the first time. There are two USB drivers included in the installed software – one for the OMAP device (always needed) and one for the Android Fastboot protocol (only needed if OMAPFlash is used with target software acting as a Fastboot protocol enabled device). Windows should detect when a USB driver is needed and ask for it – the drivers are located in the usb_drv_windows folder under the installation directory for OMAPFlash. For UART connectivity where UART communication is taking place of USB, a UART USB driver will be needed. This can be downloaded from Whenever a new driver installation happens during a download attempt to a platform, the process will most likely time out while the driver is being installed. Simply retry after the installation of the driver is completed.

This is a Windows program for saving and restoring images from removable drives (USB drives, SD Memory cards, etc). It can be used to write boot images (i.e. Ubuntu-12.04-preinstalled-desktop-armhf+omap4.img) to a SD Flash device or USB flash device, making it bootable.
