+*********************************
+Technexion i.MX8M Mini Pico board
+*********************************
+
+This file documents the Buildroot support for the Technexion i.MX8M
+Mini Pico board. The Pico i.MX8M Mini system-on-module [1] is present
+in development kits like the Pico Pi i.MX8M Mini [2].
+
+Build
+=====
+
+First, configure Buildroot for the i.MX8M Mini Pico board:
+
+ make imx8mmpico_defconfig
+
+Build all components:
+
+ make
+
+You will find in output/images/ the following files:
+ - bl31.bin
+ - boot.vfat
+ - Image
+ - imx8-boot-sd.bin
+ - imx8mm-pico-pi.dtb
+ - imx8mm-pico-pi-ili9881c.dtb
+ - imx8mm-pico-pi-sn65dsi84-hj070na.dtb
+ - lpddr4_pmu_train_fw.bin
+ - rootfs.ext2
+ - rootfs.ext4
+ - sdcard.img
+ - u-boot.imx
+
+Flashing sdcard.img on the eMMC
+===============================
+
+i.MX8M Mini Pico board does not have a SD card slot. The storage is an
+eMMC. An easy way to flash the eMMC is to use the u-boot ums
+command. The boards are sold pre-flashed with such a u-boot. It is
+assumed here that the board has already a working u-boot on eMMC and
+jumpers are set to boot on eMMC. See [3].
+
+Jumper configuration for eMMC boot:
+J1: jumper on pins 4 and 6.
+J2: jumper on pins 2 and 4.
+
+In case the board was flashed with a wrong u-boot, or the eMMC is
+erased, u-boot can be loaded by USB Serial Download boot mode, using
+imx-usb-loader. See [3] and [4].
+
+For flashing:
+- Plug the micro USB cable from the Debug USB Port, to your computer
+- Plug the USB Type C to your computer, this will power up the board
+
+In the U-Boot prompt launch:
+
+=> ums 0 mmc 1
+
+This will mount the eMMC content in the host PC as a mass storage device.
+
+To determine the device associated to the eMMC card have a look in the
+/proc/partitions file:
+
+ cat /proc/partitions
+
+If your system automatically mount some device partitions, make sure
+to unmount them.
+
+Buildroot prepares a bootable "sdcard.img" image in the output/images/
+directory, ready to be dumped on the eMMC. Launch the following
+command as root:
+
+ dd if=output/images/sdcard.img of=/dev/<your-sd-device>
+
+*** WARNING! This will destroy all the eMMC content. Use with care! ***
+
+This operation can take several minutes, depending on the image
+size. When tested, a 2MB/s transfer rate was observed.
+
+For details about the medium image layout, see the definition in
+board/freescale/common/imx/genimage.cfg.template.
+
+Boot the i.MX8M Mini Pico board
+===============================
+
+To boot your newly created system:
+- put a micro USB cable into the Debug USB Port and connect using a terminal
+ emulator at 115200 bps, 8n1;
+- power on the board, with USB Type C connector.
+
+Enjoy!
