Bug Description

The Freescale i.MX23 and i.MX28 devices need additional quirks in the kernel's HID layer to operate correctly. Without these quirks, these devices will suffer from software crash of their BootROM and not operate correctly. The MXSLDR [1] tool will not work correctly without the quirks in place either. The patches for this issue were accepted into linux-stable long time ago, but are not present in 12.04.3 version of Ubuntu. Please backport [2], [3], [4] to resolve this issue.

Thank you!
