Signed-off-by: Ezequiel Garcia <ezequiel@vanguardiasur.com.ar> [Thomas: added host dosfstools to the defconfig, needed to build a SD card image with genimage when a FAT partition is listed in the genimage configuration.] Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>

├── am335x-bone.dtb
├── MLO
├── rootfs.ext2
+ ├── sdcard.img
├── u-boot.img
├── uEnv.txt
└── zImage
-Prepare your SDCard
-You need to prepare first partition in fat32 and marked as bootable,
-and second where you will write rootfs.
-Copy the files to boot partition
- $ cp MLO u-boot.img zImage uEnv.txt *.dtb /media/zzzzz
-where /media/zzzzz is the mount point.
-Then you need to write the rootfs image onto SDCard:
- # dd if=rootfs.ext2 of=/dev/xxxxx
-where /dev/xxxxx is the second partition. Use:
- # fdisk -l
-to check for correct one.
-Unmount all mounted SDCard partitions and insert the card to BeagleBone.
-Hold the "BOOT" button and apply power. Then release the "BOOT" button.
-The output is available on the serial console.
