U-Boot for the Nanopi Fire3

This board has provided me with a trial by fire learning about U-Boot development. Apparently the U-Boot shipped by Friendly ARM only supports MMC booting. At any even, it does not support network booting and does not even include a network driver. Apparently this is an as yet untrodden path.

But I need, or at least strongly desire a U-boot that supports booting via TFTP. I arrived at this, but it was a long hard path.

Below here are pages that describe episodes during the journey.

Have any comments? Questions? Drop me a line!
