Simpler way of booting from a SD card

My freerunner came with a "boot from SD card" option already installed in uBoot. I just needed a SD (Not HDMC) card with the following layout:

  • Partition 1 is a primary partition with a FAT filesystem containing the uImage - which has to be named uImage.bin
  • Partiton 2 is a Filesystem containing the root partition. Still don't know what filesystem type it is supposed to be. Ext3 won't work. Will try Ext2 instead.

My hardware setup is:

  • Latest uBoot (July 12, 2008)
  • Freerunner (GTA02V5)
