Rockusb (Rockchip USB protocol)
Rockusb protocol is widely used by Rockchip SoC based devices. It can
read/write info, image to/from devices. This document briefly describes how to
use Rockusb for upgrading firmware (e.g. kernel, u-boot, rootfs, etc.).
There are many tools can support Rockusb protocol. rkdeveloptool
( is open source,
It is maintained by Rockchip. People don't want to build from source
can download from here
The Usage of Rockusb command is:
rockusb <USB_controller> <devtype> <dev[:part]>
e.g. rockusb 0 mmc 0
On your U-Boot console, type this command to enter rockusb mode.
On your host PC. use lsusb command. you should see a usb device
using 0x2207 as its USB verdor id.

rkdeveloptool -h
use rkdeveloptool wl command to write lba. BeginSec is the lba on device
you want to write.
sudo rkdeveloptool wl <BeginSec> <File>
to flash U-Boot image use below command. U-Boot binary is made by mkimage.
see doc/README.rockchip for more detail about how to get U-Boot binary.
sudo rkdeveloptool wl 64 <U-Boot binary>
There are plenty of Rockusb command. but wl(write lba) and
rd(reboot) command. These two command can let people flash
image to device.
To do
* Fully support Rockusb protocol
