Reg:Flashing of sato and Yocto images

New Contributor I

Hi Everyone,

I'm using the source code iot-devkit-yp-poky-edison-20160606 inorder to compile and following the steps


cd iot-devkit-yp-poky-edison-20160606/poky/

source oe-init-build-env ../build_edison/

bitbake edison-image u-boot

../poky/meta-intel-edison/utils/flash/ .

zip -r toFlash

I'm facing the issue while flashing the image,I found the flash file in /core_image_sato/iot-devkit-yp-poky-edison-20160606/poky/meta-intel-edison/utils/Flash/FlashEdison.json and flashed the image using flash-to-lite then its not flashing ,I'm getting the error of Failed to start Dldr state machine aborting....

I'm not knowing why I'm facing the issue...I'm facing the same issue for both bitbake edison image and bitbake core-image-sato..But I can flash the image by using Make edison-image.

Any and Every help is appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

Hello Radhika.k,



I'll try to help you with this issue. Could you please let us know if Flash Tool Lite eventually show an error message stating that the flashing failed? If so, could you please post a screenshot of the error message?



Flash Tool Lite is no longer recommended to flash the board, you should try the Setup Tool. You can find a guide on how to use it in



If the Setup Tool still doesn't manage to flash your board, you could try using the method. You can find instructions on how to do it in
