Hello Daiane,
Thank you so much for your replies.
I think I will start with linux-imx as you suggested.

The latest working kernel for this board is linux-next from kernel.org. It´s not even supported in FSL Community BSP as we only include stable versions (but it´s a perfectly working kernel)

The question you want to do is "What is the latest release from Freescale for imx28evk". And for this question you must go to

And, only to make it clear:

I don´t know. It depends on your project.

But, if you don´t know what to use or what you need, start with the default setup, which is virtual/kernel = linux-imx (see mxs-base.inc)
