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 V1.0C or newer, make sure to enable the Toradex Easy Installer CI feed and install a suitable image as indicated. If you have a Colibri iMX8X V1.0B or older, either install images from the main feed - which is enabled by default - or use a suitable image from the CI feed as indicated.

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 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.

As mentioned in the blog Toradex aligns embedded Linux releases with Yocto Project Long Term Support, Toradex is transitioning to BSP 5, which will include 5.4 kernel. This is a major release and during this transition BSP 4 may be more stable to do development on and we do not anticipate any major hurdles to switch to BSP 5 once it’s released. This is also why we temporarily list the latest monthly for both BSP 4 and 5 on the table below.

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.
