Actually, pine64 has a 64bit U-Boot, I think maybe the layer just needs to be updated to use mainline (or v2016.09.01) U-Boot. > Other option I would suggest to build u-boot externally for your SoC, we do > not necessarily need a bootloader for building final images anyway. Well, you do if you want a bootable image to be made :) iirc all of the models are SD card only, no eMMC so assuming firmware "elsewhere" is a bad idea. -- Tom
