U-Boot loader for NextThingCo CHIP.

To install this bootloader on an sdcard just do dd if=/usr/local/share/u-boot/u-boot-chip/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/path/to/sdcarddevice bs=1k seek=8 conv=notrunc,sync

This version is patched so that

  • ELF and API features are enabled.
  • The distroboot command knows how to load FreeBSD loader8
  • By default, it loads ubldr.bin PIE from file ubldr.bin on the FAT partition to address 0x42000000, and launches it. If ubldr.bin is not found, it falls back on ubldr
