7.13.1 Command-line options for creating simple images

The command-line options --reloc, --ro_base, --rw_base, --ropi, --rwpi, --split, and --xo_base create the simple image types.

The simple image types are:

  • Type 1 image, one load region and contiguous execution regions.

  • Type 2 image, one load region and non-contiguous execution regions.

  • Type 3 image, two load regions and non-contiguous execution regions.

You can create the same image types by using the --scatter command-line option and a file containing one of the corresponding scatter-loading descriptions.


The option --reloc is not supported for AArch64 state.
