# cd bootloader/uboot.x/src

2. Export the variable CROSS_COMPILE

4. Clean the configuration

# make distclean

5. Set the configuration:

# make omapl_hawkboard_config 

6. Compile u-boot

# make

7. The last step must generate one the file named "u-boot", this file is the ELF u-boot image file that must be used to generate the AIS file.

Generating the AIS u-boot image file

In order to generate the AIS u-boot image file, use the ELF u-boot image generated in the last section. You need to use one tool to generate the AIS file (Windows application), this tool can be downloaded from:
