From Fedora Project Wiki

The SK-AM69 Starter Kit is based on the AM69x AI vision processor which includes an image signal processor (ISP), AI accelerator, eight 64-bit Arm®-Cortex® A72 microprocessor, and H.264/H.265 video encode/decode. The SK-AM69x is an ideal choice for machine vision, traffic monitoring, retail automation, and factory automation.

Creating a bootable Fedora Minimal Rawhide image

Fedora Rawhide images should be bootable with some additional user interaction.

1. Download the latest Fedora Minimal Rawhide image from the download site. I.e:

2. Flash the Fedora image to a SD-card (replace /dev/mmcblkX with your block device):

sudo arm-image-installer --target=none \
                         --image=Fedora-Minimal-Rawhide-$(date '+%Y%m%d').n.0.aarch64.raw.xz \
                         --media=/dev/mmcblkX --resizefs --norootpass --showboot \
                         --args "console=ttyS2,115200n8 selinux=0"

3. Unplug and plug again the SD-card, so the system recognizes the newly created partitions.

4. Build and generate the bootloader binaries required for the TI SK-AM69 board.

Clone the k3-upstream-boot-build project. This is a build package to help ease build and deploy various K3 Boards.

git clone
cd k3-upstream-boot-build/
make gitsync

Build all the required components, note that building u-boot binaries depends on some extra binaries like Arm Trusted Firmware and OP-TEE.

make j784s4_am69_sk_hs_fs_all_defconfig
make CROSS_COMPILE_64=aarch64-linux-gnu- CROSS_COMPILE_32=arm-linux-gnu- -j

Note that the above steps assumes a x86_64 Linux system for build. If not, the scripts should be adjusted appropriately.

Binaries will be in the deploy/ directory.

5. Copy the bootloader binaries to the first FAT partition of the storage media. I.e (replace /dev/mmcblkX with your block device):

cp deploy/tiboot3.bin $(lsblk /dev/mmcblkXp1 -n -o MOUNTPOINT)
cp deploy/tispl.bin $(lsblk /dev/mmcblkXp1 -n -o MOUNTPOINT)
cp deploy/u-boot.img $(lsblk /dev/mmcblkXp1 -n -o MOUNTPOINT)

6. Umount all the partitions, put the SD-card into the slot and turn on the board

Current u-boot supports EFI boot so it should just boot without any interaction. Make sure you have access to the serial port and follow the instructions to finish the image installation.
