Raspberry Pi VxWorks Faults when booting

Hi,
Having recently bought a RaspberryPi I decided to mount VxWorks to it.
Having followed the steps in the SDK guide i was greeted with
“start4.elf is not compitable the board requires newer hardware”
I got the latest firmware from the raspberry pi boot and managed to get VxWorks to boot, but i am facing a few issues with getting it to communcate to WRStudio in vs code, to an FTP server etc, when it boots i am getting an error, and also when i try to communicate with say ping etc im getting value = 4294967295 = 0xffffffff.
Is ther anything im missing that could be causing these errors or could it be that the latest firmare on the Pi isn’t compatible with VxWorks?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
(hopefully the image uploads)

The recommended firmware mentioned in the README file is https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/archive/1.20200212.tar.gz. I haven’t checked recent RPi4 firmware updates, but I’ll try to do that soon.

Meanwhile, you should be able to set an IP address manually using ifconfig. For example this is the set of commands I used to set a static IP address.

cmd
ifconfig genet0 128.224.125.72

Here is a more detailed log which includes the aforementioned commands:

That’s the firmware version I used but when booting it said
“start4.elf is not compatible this board requires newer software” << not hardware sorry I made a mistake in the original post.
After moving to the latest firmware for the RPi it booted.
The Ethernet connection actually did turn itself on after waiting about 5 minutes. Maybe i was just being impatient with that one.
Thanks for your help,
Oliver

Hello, I am having the same issue trying to access the FTP server.

I followed the readme and I am using firware version 1.20200212.

I have set the IP address using the ifconfig command. I can successfully ping the host as well.

However the command → netDevCreate(“wrs”,“10.71.250.20”,1) results in value = 4294967295 = 0xffffffff
