Where can I find bootimg.bin for ACTBP ?

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: AUDIOCAPDSP-C55X

Hello Everyone,

I have a ACTBP but without original SD Card , I'm trying to find the "bootimg.bin" to prepare the SD card for ACTBP.

For C5535 and newer

  1. SD card needs to be formatted in either FAT32 or FAT16 format
  2. Copy the ".bin" (ex: bootimg.bin) file to the formatted SD Card under root partition (filename MUST BE "bootimg.bin")

I found here is a location to get bootimg.bin

but after clicking "Get Software" it jumps to . And there is no bootimg.bin .

Do I miss anythihng ? or Anyone can give me  the  correct  location  to download ?


  • Hi George,

    Contact TI for a replacement device. Refer to this post.

    I just created this FAQ on the ACTBP C5535 SW wiki page to address your concern.

    I also uploaded the BOOTIMG.bin file to the ACTBP C5535 SW wiki, but you will need the original SD card due to MP3 royalties.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your reply and effort .

    In your reply "but you will need the original SD card due to MP3 royalties."

    If it means even I copy the BOOTIMG.bin which you uploaded to any SD card(but not original one), it won't boot up successfully ?

    Best Regards,


  • Hi George,

    Yes - you will need the original SD card or a replacement from TI. The BOOTIMG.bin file alone does not contain the MP3 CODEC in this case, due to royalties.

    Best Regards,

  • Hello Mark,

    is it possible to get a 4GB SD-Card from TI or is there any chance to use an other SD-Card ? The normal 2GB hasn't enough space for my usage.

    yours sincerely,


  • Hi Mark, same problem like Alex. I have the original SD card, but while I was try put files in this, some was wrog and the SD card was writen with many errors. There is a way to backup the MP3 CODEC and BOOTIMG.BIN and then restore in a fresh format SD card?



  • Hi Mark

    Like many others i have tried to replace the SD Card due to the limited size.

    In the documentation: Audio Capacitive Touch BoosterPack C5535 Software TIDA015–September 2014

    It is claimed that:

    9.11 Is SDHC, SDXC Supported?

    A: SDHC is supported, and it has been tested with a 16GB SD card. It should be capable of supporting up
    to 32GB card, though it has not been tested (as of Dec 8, 2011).

    Only problem: users/developers/customers cant do this.

    I can clone the contents of the original SD card to any size SD Card up to 32 Gb using (HDDRawCopy1.10Portable and MiniTool Partition Wizard) and boot the DSP system and make it work.
    Only problem is; whenever i change the partition size of the larger SD Card to anything else than the original (2Gb) it isn't booting.

    The original 2Gb SD Card has two partitions; are you storing the Mp3 codec in the 19Mb partition ?

    There must be a way to transport the license file, other than contacting TI.
    I'm not trying to make illegal copy, bu to upgrade my storage.

    My system must be heat tested; and i know i will have to go through a number of different SD Cards to find a stable brand and type.
    Therefore it would be convenient to move the "key" files in house.
