Mkbootimg

From Linux Rockchip
Jump to: navigation, search

Rockchip-specific tool for packing kernel and initramfs into one file that can be flashed to boot or recovery partition.

mkbootimg takes a kernel and, optionally, initramfs/initrd image, produces a boot.img

  • boot.img may be directly written (or flashed) to the boot partition or recovery partition
    • NAND partition layout is defined by a parameter file
    • Rockchip loader binary reads, tests checksum and then runs the boot image
Note: Flashing zImage or Image unmodified will render the system unbootable. The proprietary loader expects the kernel packed by either mkbootimg or rkcrc.
