Build u-boot from sources

Download the latest stable version from ISEE GIT Repository

git clone -b u-boot-2015.07.y git://git.isee.biz/pub/scm/u-boot-arm.git 
cd u-boot-arm/


Also, it could download from GIT Repositories (http://git.isee.biz/) and test the last unstable version at your own risk (see "U-Boot Mainline Series" chapter in The bootloader U-Boot)

Configure U-Boot for IGEP COM AQUILA RB11 device.

make CROSS_COMPILE=[your cross compiler] am335x_igep0033_defconfig

Configure U-Boot for IGEP COM AQUILA RB30 device.

make CROSS_COMPILE=[your cross compiler] am335x_igep0033_RB30_defconfig

Configure U-Boot for IGEP SMARC AM335x Lite device.

make CROSS_COMPILE=[your cross compiler] am335x_igep0034_defconfig

Configure U-Boot for IGEP SMARC AM335x device.

make CROSS_COMPILE=[your cross compiler] am335x_igep0034_lite_defconfig

Then build the SPL and the u-boot image. The result will be an MLO file and an u-boot.img file in current directory. Execute:

make CROSS_COMPILE=[your cross compiler]
