Hi Wolfgang,

Am sorry to misspell your name.

 I have modified u-boot according to our board design. We are able to load the u-boot into ddr3 ram and execute it.
 I have mentioned that design is same like imx6q saberlite board.

My query is that When I try to read the flash information from u-boot, Am  getting as Unknown flash on bank1.

So I just want to understand whether I missed anything.

Thanks for your responses.

This is an oxymoron.  Your board cannot be "the same" when it uses
different flash.

It is a _different_ board so you must adapt U-Boot for it.  Just
running the Saber Lite code on it is bound to fail.

Best regards,
