Introduction

This article contains download links to offline installers for the Toradex Reference Images for Yocto Project.

For alternative software offerings, such as Partner Demo Images and Torizon, visit our Software page.

You must choose the image format:

  • Toradex Easy Installer Image Format: the only format supported for BSP 3 onwards. Also supported for BSP 2.8, except for Colibri VF50/VF61/T20/T30.
  • Legacy Image Format: the only format supported for Colibri VF50/VF61/T20/T30, only used for BSP 2.8. Not available from BSP 3 onwards.

Prerequisites

Toradex Easy Installer Image Format

Downloads of quarterly and LTS releases may be verified using the following SHA256SUMS file.

Attention: if you have a Colibri iMX8X V1.0B or older use a suitable image as indicated in the download table below, or the online Toradex Easy Installer feed. If you have a Colibri iMX8X V1.0C or newer, make sure to install the default image, or the one for the V1.0C if available, either from the table below or the online Toradex Easy Instaler feed.

If you install an image for the wrong version of Colibri iMX8X, it will not boot and you will have to enter Recovery Mode, re-load Toradex Easy Installer and install a suitable image.

Toradex Embedded Linux Long Term Supported(LTS) Releases

LTS releases are production releases. They are good for development but also for deployment on the field. They have a maintenance cycle usually around 2 to 3 years. Learn more about the different image options on BSP Layers and Reference Images for Yocto Project Software.

Toradex Embedded Linux Monthly Releases

Monthly releases are pre-production releases. They are good for development as you keep up-to-date with the latest features and bugfixes. Learn more about the different image options on BSP Layers and Reference Images for Yocto Project Software.

Attention: we are in the process of migrating the graphical back-end from X to Wayland on BSP 5. Some early nightly and monthly builds might still use X until the migration is finished, and therefore not be available in the table below.

Warning: The images with the PREEMPT_RT patch haven't been fully validated by Toradex. We have only run smoke tests and cyclictest to make sure that the system boots properly and the PREEMPT_RT patches are working on idle conditions.

Toradex Embedded Linux Nightly Releases

Nightly releases are pre-production releases without testing, and may not boot. Typically they are only used in development to focus on a feature or bug fix coming up in a monthly release. Learn more about the different image options on BSP Layers and Reference Images for Yocto Project Software.

Attention: we are in the process of migrating the graphical back-end from X to Wayland on BSP 5. Some early nightly and monthly builds might still use X until the migration is finished, and therefore not be available in the table below.

Warning: The images with the PREEMPT_RT patch haven't been fully validated by Toradex. We have only run smoke tests and cyclictest to make sure that the system boots properly and the PREEMPT_RT patches are working on idle conditions.
