U-Boot loader for SolidRun Cubox-i and Hummingboard.

Install the u-boot.imx file onto the boot disk using

dd if=u-boot.imx of=/dev/whatever bs=1k oseek=1 conv=sync

The U-Boot built by this port expects the first 1MB of the boot media to be reserved for the U-Boot executable and saved environment. The u-boot.imx file begins at an offset of 1K from the start of the boot disk. The U-Boot environment area begins at an offset of 512K.

This version is patched so that

  • ELF and API features are enabled to support ubldr.

The sources for this port were originally obtained from commit e4bc4c3ebe at https// which appears to be a highly modified fork of the stock U-Boot 2013.10 release. As of this writing, the changes in this fork have not been rolled back into upstream U-Boot.
