Bypassing U-Boot (SPL -> kernel)

Wow, falcon mode looks really slick! I’ve been hacking away at u-boot trying to get my system to boot faster, this looks cool!

I’m pretty new to some topics in Linux, and am having trouble patching the u-boot directory properly so that I can compile the new falcon-mode bootloader for the BeagleBone Black. Can anyone give me some pointers for creating the new bootloaders?

See http://www.crashcourse.ca/wiki/index.php/U-Boot_on_the_BBB#Building_a_stock_u-boot_for_the_BBB and just use vanilla upstream. The am335x_boneblack build target will use eMMC for environment, and has settings for falcon mode.

guess i better to make sure that page is up to date. :slight_smile: and i'll
check what this falcon mode is all about.
