The Config Block is a special section of the Flash Layout. It basically holds the information used by the Bootloader.
The config block entries are grouped into sections. These sections contain relevant information to control the boot process and basic system properties.
!!WARNING!!: It is possible to modify the Configblock in a way that the module doesn't start any more, be care full if you modify it.
There are four options to change the contents of the config block:
Use the Command Prompt of the Bootloader to access the Config Block data or the Config Block Editor.
The following bootloader commands are used to change config block settings
setconfig <section>.<param> <value>
(set, save and clear are short forms of the commands described above)
The Config Block Editor is a WinCE application developed by Toradex. It can be used to edit settings stored in the Config Block.
You can find the Config Block Editor in the Colibri Software section.
Beginning with revision 1.1, the config block editor has a feature to change config block settings from within Windows CE.
e.g. configblockeditor.exe \pathtofile\settings.txt
The batchfile contains a list of commands, following a simple syntax, which is very similar to the bootloader command line:
setconfig <group>.<param> <value>
# or ; at line start are treated as comments
