U-Boot for A64 git
#1
To make clear what Allwinner did to U-Boot I started a Git repository forked from mainline.

See https://github.com/longsleep/u-boot-pine64 

Branch pine64-hacks has applied the BSP changes on top of mainline 2014.07 tag and contains various required backports and fixes for Pine64 on top.

Disk image test releases for Pine64

I publish disk images which combine U-Boot, Kernel with a minimal initrd as base image for Linux distributions and for testing. **These images are for developers** and  are build with my set of Pine64 image building tools from here.

Released images are signed with a detached GPG signature (.asc) signed by my personal key 0x090EF0DB. Get the key and verify that the download is intact and unmodified.
Code:
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 090EF0DB
gpg --with-fingerprint simpleimage-pine64-*.xz.asc

To update both Kernel an U-Boot to the latest releases, run the following commands (as root):
Code:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_uboot.sh)
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_kernel.sh)
and reboot.

Cheers,
Simon
