U-Boot images for the Orange Pi

Back around February of 2017, I grabbed the U-Boot sources (2016.11) and figured out how to apply the latest Armbian patches available at that time. Using this patched code, I have built U-Boot images for several Orange Pi boards, in particular some being used by the Xinu project.

To use the images, just use dd to copy them onto an SD card, something like

dd if=xyz-with-spl.bin of=/dev/sdc
Be very careful to get the device name correct for your flash card reader. If you screw up and do something like write to /dev/sda and that is the disk with your running system, you will be extremely upset.

Have any comments? Questions? Drop me a line!
