Updating U-Boot using xFSTK
You can also update U-Boot using the xfstk-dldr-solo tool if you can build it.
One way to do that is to follow the `xFSTK`_ instructions. You may need to use
a virtual machine running Ubuntu Trusty. Once you have built it and installed
libboost-all-dev, you can copy xfstk-dldr-solo to /usr/local/bin and to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ and with luck
it will work. You might fine this `drive`_ helpful.
If it does, then you can download and unpack the Edison reocovery image,
install dfu-util, reset your board and flash U-Boot like this::
$ xfstk-dldr-solo --gpflags 0x80000007 \
--osimage u-boot-edison.img \
--fwdnx recover/edison_dnx_fwr.bin \
--fwimage recover/edison_ifwi-dbg-00.bin \
--osdnx recover/edison_dnx_osr.bin
This should show the following

You have about 10 seconds after resetting the board to type the above command.
If you want to check if the board is ready, type:
.. code-block:: none
lsusb |egrep "8087|8086"

After about 5 seconds you should see some console output from the board:

After another 10 seconds the xFSTK tool completes and the board resets. About
10 seconds after that should see the above message again and then within a
few seconds U-Boot should start on your board:
