The arm64 miniroot contains a fat filesystem with raspberry pi firmware,
config.txt and rpi_3 u-boot. The config.txt already has serial enabled
(with pl011 uart):
You can force the firmware stage which runs before u-boot to output on
serial by modifying bootcode.bin as described at the end of
If you try miniroot67.img from a snapshot you'll get a more recent
version of u-boot. May be worth trying.
