A: 
Download the Debian patch files and the utility tools pack from: http://www.element14.com/BeagleBone . Uncompress both of the archives, Use the HP USB formatting tool (HPUSBFW.exe) from the utility tools pack to format a USB flash drive. Copy all the patch files to the USB flash drive. Ensure that a Debian system currently exists in the BeagleBone Black eMMC. Connect the USB flash drive to the BeagleBone Black and power it on. Execute the following instructions in a terminal program (such as PuTTY) to mount the flash drive
$ mkdir /media/udisk
$ mount /dev/sda1 /media/udisk
Execute the following instructions to patch the image
$ cp -f /media/udisk/zImage /boot/uboot
$ cp -f /media/udisk/*.dtb /boot/uboot/dtbs
$ tar -xvf /media/udisk/kernel_modules.tar.gzvcd -C /
$ cp -f /media/udisk/xorg.conf /etc/X11/
$ sync

Power off the board and connect BeagleBone Black, BB VIEW and an LCD display, and then power it on again.Now to connect to BBView 4.3. The following instructions are executed in PuTTY for the use of 4.3” LCD displays
root@beaglebone:~# cd /boot/uboot/dtbs
root@beaglebone:~# cp am335x-boneblack-lcd4.dtb am335x-boneblack.dtb
root@beaglebone:~# sync
Now restart the board to complete the configuration for the 4.3” LCD display

Answers

A: 
While the four user LEDS can be over written and used as desired, they do have specific meanings in the image that is shipped with the board once the Linux kernel has booted.
• USER0 is the heartbeat indicator from the Linux kernel.
• USER1 turns on when the microSD card is being accessed
• USER2 is an activity indicator. It turns on when the kernel is not in the idle loop.
• USER3 turns on when the onboard eMMC is being accessed

Answers

A: 
eMMC Boot…This is the default boot mode and will allow for the fastest boot time and will enable the board to boot out of the box using the pre-flashed OS image without having to purchase an microSD card or an microSD card writer.
• SD Boot…This mode will boot from the microSD slot. This mode can be used to override what is on the eMMC device and can be used to program the eMMC when used in the manufacturing process or for field updates.
• Serial Boot…This mode will use the serial port to allow downloading of the software direct. A separate USB to serial cable is required to use this port.
• USB Boot…This mode supports booting over the USB port

Answers

A: 
The 4.3” and 7” LCD screens provided with the BB-View have different styles of FPC. These are not cross compatible and using the wrong FPC will result in apparent failure of the module. BBView 4.3 requires a ‘straight through’ FPC
