How to assemble a BBB from scratch

Hi to all,
I’m imagine to build a BeagleBoneBlack from scratch and I’m in doubt about the ROM that will boot all the system. Infact if I assemble all the stuff and I power it up, I undestand that nothing will happen if I dont do some minimal programming (I guess I would flash something at low level…)

Have anybody tried to do something similar?

Thank you

The ROM as you call it is inside the processor. You need to provide code either in the SD card or the eMMC for the board to boot.


The "boot ROM" is provided by TI inside the silicon. It's up to you to
correctly setup the sys_boot pins and provide the external media read
by the "boot ROM".
