2013.3/14.7 - Zynq FSBL - Issues with fallback image offset handling using MD5


When calculating the MD5 checksum, checksum offset is directly used without using the relative address from the start of the image.
This means that when the image is at flash offset 0x0 then MD5 checksum works, but when the image is at 0x100000 of the flash then the MD5 checksum fails.


To work around this, follow the example in the below code which is modified to take the relative offset when modifying the checksum.
            if (PartitionChecksumFlag) {
                                                 * Validate the partition data with checksum
                                                Status = ValidateParition(PartitionStartAddr,
                                                                        (PartitionTotalSize << WORD_LENGTH_SHIFT),
                                                                        ImageStartAddress  +
                                                                        (PartitionChecksumOffset << WORD_LENGTH_SHIFT));
There are no plans to fix this issue in ISE Design Suite.

The is issue is fixed in Vivado Design Suite 2014.3.
