How to recover Arria 10 QSPI flash daughter card

Hi  

 

I am able to boot the QSPI flash daughter card with the default image. Then i built the QSPI u-boot using the below configuration 

 

make socfpga_arria10_qspi_reva_defconfig 

 

then converted the u-boot-dtb.bin image using mkpimage tool to u-boot-mkpimage.bin 

mkpimage -hv 1 -o u-boot-mkpimage.bin u-boot-dtb.bin u-boot-dtb.bin u-boot-dtb.bin u-boot-dtb.bin 

 

then programmed the QSPI flash using below command  

tftp 0x8000 u-boot-mkpimage.bin 

sf probe 

sf erase 0x0 0x100000 

sf write 0x8000 0x0 0x100000 

 

I followed the Arria 10 QSPI flash memory map as shown below

Now the Evaluation board is not booting and how can recover back the flash daughter card ?

Thanks sunshine, 

 

i am able to recover back my flash daughter card using USB Blaster and quartus_hps 

 

jtagconfig  

jtagconfig --getparam 1 JtagClock 

quartus_hps -c 1 -o PV /home/Desktop/devkit/qspi_image/u-boot-_w_dtb-mkpimage.bin 

 

u-boot-_w_dtb-mkpimage.bin is the default built in binary from rocketboards.org  

 

below is the link for QSPI mapping
