EEPROM support in Beaglebone black

I found out that i2c-0 is used internally for EEPROM. For some reason I want to unload i2c-omap due to which i2c-0 interface would also be vanished. Would it create any problem in hardware or software if I remove EEPROM support???

Well, the kernel will not boot properly because it cannot determine the board type… But that may not be an issue for you.


You’d have to hack several files and maybe uboot files as well. Easy enough to try

Remember the EEPROM will still be physically on the board, even if you modify the boot to make that work.
