How to setup a (Wi-)i.MX51 or (Wi-)i.MX53 with default (factory) Android images? Updated from Android 1.1 to 1.2 or migrated a WinCE or Linux to Android and see a kernel panic

From your Android Application Development Kit (aadk) copy default files to your TFTP server, e.g.:

cp /opt/Digi/Android/aadk-1.2/images/ccwmx53js/* /tftpboot

presumed you have U-Boot 2009.08 DUB- or newer already running
otherwise on U-Boot run:

update uboot tftp

Create partitions for Android with flpart: flpart "r"eset "a"ndroid "q"uit and save

update android [tftp]

update androidfs [tftp]

setenv bootcmd dboot android flash;saveenv

to set the video and display variables accordingly (e.g. "custom" can cause a kernel panic)

E.g. on the Digi JSK with Digi LCD you should enter:
1 for Video 1 interface  
3 for LCD display  
1 for LQ070Y3DG3B (JSK display)  

see also Digi ESP for Android Help, section 6.1 Boot Android from Flash, Flashing images
Troubleshooting and 10. Limitations section for setting the video environment accordingly.
