Binary Links to U-Boot

Some people have asked for U-Boot Binaries.

This is the binary for U-Boot u-boot-bin.tbz2

And this is the source code used to create the above binary. u-boot-src.tbz2

The source is current as of the date on this post. But I recommend strongly that you use git and get your own fresh copy of the source and that you compile it yourself. I have gotten numerous requests for these links. So here you go.

The code here is completely unmodified by me. It's just a straightforward compile.

I'll try to update this blog entry with updated Binaries and source occasionally for those of you who won't or can't for some reason do any of the stuff for yourselves.

HOWTO: Compiling and Flashing U-Boot onto Mini2440

The bootloader that comes factory installed on the Micro2440 and the Mini2440 board is called Supervivi. I don't personally like it. It has very limited support and requires a YAFFS filesystem for the root filesystem. So when I bought my board I began to immediately search out an alternative. The bootloader by choice, it seems, is a modified version of U-Boot with modifications for the Mini2440 board's hardware
