Device Tree for SPI0 not loading during Beaglebone Black Boots up

I am presently using Debian GNU/Linux 7.9 (wheezy) on the BBB. Everything works fine until I reboot the BBB. Before rebooting, I do the following to verify If the SPI0 is enabled.

  1. root@beaglebone:/sys/devices/bone_capemgr.9# echo ADAFRUIT-SPI0 > slots

Output : root@beaglebone:/sys/devices/bone_capemgr.9# cat slots

0: 54:PF— 1: 55:PF— 2: 56:PF— 3: 57:PF— 4: ff:P-O-L Bone-LT-eMMC-2G,00A0,Texas Instrument,BB-BONE-EMMC-2G 5: ff:P-O-L Bone-Black-HDMI,00A0,Texas Instrument,BB-BONELT-HDMI 8: ff:P-O-L Override Board Name,00A0,Override Manuf,ADAFRUIT-SPI0

The 8th slot is loaded with SPI 0.

  1. root@beaglebone:~# ls -al /dev/spidev*

Output : crw-rw—T 1 root spi 153, 0 Feb 14 05:53 /dev/spidev1.0

Its showing spidev1.0, so its fine

  1. root@beaglebone:~# cat /sys/kernel/debug/pinctrl/44e10800.pinmux/pingroups

Output: group: spi0_pins_s0 pin 84 (44e10950), pin 85 (44e10954), pin 86 (44e10958),

Its showing the SPI pins.

  1. root@beaglebone:~# sudo nano /boot/uEnv.txt

I opened the uEnv.txt file and added this line, so that the SPI0 DT will load during system boot up


Problem: Why isn’t my SPI0 DT being loaded during system boot up?, after a reboot I did steps 1,2 and 3 mentioned above to check, but noticed that the DT fails to load after rebooting. why is this happening?
