meta-fsl-bsp-release is not supposed to work with outside
L3.10.17-1.0.0-GA release.
And it´s only supposed to be a reference static source code. It means,
when you need to adapt, change any configuration, or version. You
should use FSL Community BSP.

You can find latest 3.0.35 on Dora:

>> What is your target u-boot version?
> 2009.08

Are you sure?

What Freescale released version?

In dora we have imx_3.0.35_4.0.0:


But I think you can consider to use a newer one.

So, start over, using only FSL Community BSP. Forget about
meta-fsl-bsp-release because it will not work for you.
When you have only FSL Community BSP, try again to create your own
meta layer. Go step-by-step. Any error or stuck point, post here the
log of your error. Keep the Yocto Project Manual around you.

My suggested steps:

1- install FSL Community BSP (on dora)
2- bitbake core-image-base (if you have access to a sabre sd board, it
would be great to get it tested)
3- detect your target linux and u-boot
4- create your empty meta layer
5- create your machine based on sabresd
6- change the u-boot preferred
