Dear Ms Daiane Angolini,

Many thanks for the tips. I am totally newbie to yocto and it seems 
yoctoproject the only answer for my problem.

U-boot and kernel git repository I pulled using git from embest 
marsboard tutorial from here 

5.1.1 Getting Tools and Source Code
Execute the following instructions to get cross compiling toolchain;
 $ cd ~
 $ git clone git://github.com/embest-tech/fsl-linaro-toolchain.git
Execute the following instructions to get u-boot source code;
 $ cd ~
 $ git clone git://github.com/embest-tech/u-boot-imx.git -b 
Execute the following instructions to get kernel source code;
 $ cd ~
 $ git clone git://github.com/embest-tech/linux-imx.git -b 

I have no idea from where to get marsboard support in meta-fsl-arm-extra .

Please advise,
