In November's image of the 4.3 Beta Android Jelly Bean image, we mentioned that the General Availability (GA) version was close to release, and we promised images.

These images are now on-line:

The first (nitrogen6x) image is bootable on our Nitrogen6x, Nitrogen6x-SOM, or BD-SL-i.MX6 (SABRE Lite) boards and contains kernels for both the OV5640-MIPI and OV5642 parallel cameras with multiple uImage files in the /boot partition.

The second (nit6xlite) image is for our Nitrogen6_Lite board.

As usual, you'll need to register on our site and agree to the EULA because it contains Freescale content. The image is a 4GB SD card image that can be restored using zcat and dd under Linux or Alex Page's USB Image Tool under Windows.


The sources for this release are in the boundary-imx_jb4.3_1.0.0-ga branch of our Github repository, and the build steps are otherwise the same as in the second beta release.


The Freescale documentation for this release are in their release page here.

Let us know how this image works for you.

Our experience has been that there are few differences from the beta, and that both have been solid.

Many thanks to the Freescale teams involved.
