    First of all, big thanks to both Marvell and SolidRun for delivering this much needed board!

    I just got mine running:

    Now, since my board’s u-boot seems slightly older than what is shown in the wiki, what’s the procedure for flashing the board’s ATF/u-boot?

    Wow, I’m jealous.

    I received mine 2 days ago and have not been able to get anything running on it. I was maybe incorrect in my understanding that there was an OS already installed, but it refuses to boot.

    Could you share which method you followed and which distro you used?

    I, too, thought there would be a busybox pre-installed on the emmc (that’s what the getting-started section of the wiki says) but apparently that’s not the case with the first batch.

    As re getting it going – I just followed these 3 sections of the BSP HowTo:
    * Build from source – Kernel (http://wiki.macchiatobin.net/tiki-index.php?page=Build+from+source+-+Kernel)
    * Creating Ubuntu filesystem (http://wiki.macchiatobin.net/tiki-index.php?page=Creating+Ubuntu+filesystem)
    * Boot from removable storage – Ubuntu (http://wiki.macchiatobin.net/tiki-index.php?page=Boot+from+removable+storage+-+Ubuntu)

    The first step – the kernel build, was done as a cross-build on an ubuntu x86-64 box. I originally wanted to do it natively on one of my A53 SBCs, but eventually decided I didn’t have the spare time ; )

    Forgot to mention one small detail: when doing the serial console connection (in my case over minicom), I had to turn off hardware flow control in minicom’s serial-port settings, otherwise I’d see the incoming traffic but I couldn’t send anything to the board. I don’t think that detail is mentioned in the wiki.
