Release Image

2022_r2 Patch 1 Image

  • MD5 checksum 7118fc7fce9a5f102332976b6d5c1537
  • MD5 checksum 2024-04-04-ADI-Kuiper-full.img: 4867cdcf7d13306f045fd4fb97e76404
  • If you start from a 2022_r2 SD card image and want to update just the boot files to 2022_r2 Patch 1 version, you can just run in a terminal.
  • Kuiper Imager tool can be also used for updating the boot files to latest.
  • Besides fixes in boot files, Patch 1 contains bug fixes for other ADI SW components.
  • Boot files only can be downloaded from here, and verify the checksum here
  • Microblaze images are not affected by fixes in this patch. 2022_r2 version of them can be downloaded from here

Known issues

1. Writing SD cards with Balena Etcher (version 1.7.9) from Windows10 or Ubuntu Disk Image Writer may give an error at the end, on validating SD card step.

Even so, SD cards should be written properly, so you can ignore it. As alternatives you can use Win32 Disk Imager (version 1.0) from Windows or 'dd' command from linux systems.

2. Video output may not work. There are two scripts that can be run in Kuiper Linux terminal: - which is used to create a display for zynq based boards and - which is used to create display for zynqmp based boards. Running the one for zynq on a zynqmp device or vice versa will broke video output.

The solution is to delete the wrong created file if there exists (/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf is created by and /etc/X11/xorg.conf is created by Also, if image is still not shown properly using Display Port, check here the list of monitors supported by Xilinx

3. Versal based carriers (vck190) might not boot with 2022_r2 and 2022_r2 Patch1 Kuiper Linux images.

The problem appears because some revisions of VCK190 or VPK may have the date/time set randomly or in 64bit format. To make them boot, it is enough to overwrite the date, following next steps:

  1. when booting the board, hit any key to go into u-boot menu
  2. type mw F12A0000 6613DE3D (this value is hexa of the date from Unix Converter webpage)
  3. continue booting

Another workaround is to boot it with GRHD files provided by Xilinx (doesn't matter if it's petalinux or yocto), and after is booting to type next commands:

  ''date -s "$(wget -qSO --max-redirect=0 2>&1 | grep Date: | cut -d' ' -f5-8)Z" & hwclock --systohc'' 

After reboot, you should be able to boot also with Kuiper Linux image.

4. zcu102 + StingRay does not work properly with 2022_r2 and 2022_r2 Patch 1 Kuiper Linux images.

The issue is related to TDD core that got updated to a newer version but still has some issues. If you want to boot StingRay projects, please use previous Kuiper Linux releases.
