U-Boot loader for Banana Pi M3.
To install this bootloader on an sdcard just do dd if=/usr/local/share/u-boot/u-boot-sinovoip-bpi-m3/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 default environment is trimmed to just what’s needed to boot.
- The saveenv command writes to the file u-boot.env on the FAT partition.
- The DTB file name is chosen based on the board model and passed to ubldr.bin using the fdtfile env variable. ubldr.bin loads the DTB from /boot/dtb/ on the FreeBSD partition.
- By default, it loads PIE ubldr.bin from file ubldr.bin on the FAT partition to address 0x42000000, and launches it.
