Maybe, but for me uboot is enough.

I am happy with uboot and religiously deny to use Uefi, because it comes from evil corporations!

What's Uefi? Can it run Kodi?

UEFI for Pine64

My guess is that these are probably some very old boards, using a very old version of U-Boot and most likely having almost no real users remaining nowadays (because the boards are old, not sold anymore and used to be relatively expensive).
no, those aren't old boards, they are current. this is not allwinner SoC's boards, and their uboot doesn't support much. features are just not implemented.
Quote:You can probably implement your UEFI firmware for these decent boards. Or just bring U-Boot support up to date and add the missing features, which is likely orders of magnitude easier.
I don't think it is easier. As I've said - UEFI is a standard, it has a complete documentation. It's much easier to get what it means what its philosophy and stuff. And its modular - I write the core, and then I and other write needed drivers. It lets you to start with something tiny and expand it continuously. uboot on the other hand is a not structured, not documented mess. in order to get how to work for it, one needs learn through its entire codebase, it would not be easier and not that fun at all.
ANT - my hobby OS for x86 and ARM.
