You could simply zero out the Initial SPL Loader dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1024 count=40 Or you could write the special fel-boot sd card image into the internal storage https://linux-sunxi.org/FEL#Through_a_special_SD_card_image Mainline U-Boot defines a nice partition table that allows you to write the fel-sdboot image file quite easily by running following commands fastboot oem format fastboot flash loader1 fel-sdboot.sunxi fastboot reboot And after that boot with a clean U-Boot via FEL Nicer options would be to add a custom boot-to-fel oem command to u- boot fastboot implementation But I think the best way would be to figure out a way to trigger FEL via the FEL/UBOOT pin because it will be more reliable those hackish methods. : https://gitlab.denx.de/u-boot/u-boot/-/blob/v2020.04/include/configs/sunxi-common.h#L467 : https://github.com/linux-sunxi/sunxi-tools/blob/master/bin/fel-sdboot.sunxi : https://plaes.org/technotes/embedded-systems/sunxi-notes/ : https://gitlab.denx.de/u-boot/u-boot/-/blob/v2020.04/drivers/fastboot/fb_command.c -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "linux-sunxi" group.
