Well, that is good news. Even if I have to wait a bit. Thanks.

Not really sure what you would like me to do with this, but I think the first bit of code is the OSes/kernels you can chose from on boot? If that's the case, neat! As mentioned earlier, if you could make a how-to, that would be lovely Smile

No worries. I will try to replicate it. Just one question, have you tried with rootfs on USB thumb-drives  ?

No, I tested rootfs on sdcard only. 
U-boot also on sdcard (mainline u-boot compiled by me).

Ok, I assume you just installed syslinux-common on xenial/jessie and took it from there ?
edit: cant seems to find syslinux for arm64 and same goes for extlinux.

No, i did not.
All I did was editing /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file - u-boot is checking for this file at boot.

I try to do a dual boot with Libreelec based on maal example.


My partitions

Code:
lsblk -o NAME,LABEL,PARTFLAGS,FSTYPE,SIZE
NAME         LABEL       PARTFLAGS FSTYPE  SIZE
mmcblk0rpmb                                  4M
mmcblk0boot0                                 4M
mmcblk0boot1                                 4M
mmcblk0                                   58,2G
├─mmcblk0p1                                3,9M
├─mmcblk0p2                                 64K
├─mmcblk0p3                                  4M
├─mmcblk0p4                                  4M
├─mmcblk0p5                                  4M
├─mmcblk0p6  boot        0x4       vfat    112M
├─mmcblk0p7  linux-root            ext4   48,4G
├─mmcblk0p8  LE_SYSTEM   0x4       vfat   1000M
└─mmcblk0p9  LE_STORAGE            ext4    8,8G

And my extlinux.conf

Code:
TIMEOUT 150

DEFAULT kernel-4.4

MENU TITLE Rock64 boot options


label kernel-4.4
   kernel /Image
   initrd /initrd.img
   fdt /dtb
   append earlycon=uart8250,mmio32,0xff130000 rw root=LABEL=linux-root rootwait rootfstype=ext4 init=/sbin/init coherent_pool=1M ethaddr=${ethaddr} eth1addr=${eth1addr} serial=${serial#}


LABEL LibreELEC
   LINUX /Image
   FDT /rk3328-rock64.dtb
   APPEND boot=LABEL=LE_SYSTEM disk=LABEL=LE_STORAGE quiet console=uart8250,mmio32,0xff130000 console=tty0

I have copy LibreELEC Image,SYSTEM and rk3328-rock64.dtb on LE_SYSTEM partition.  and take example from LibreELEC extlinux.conf

I boot from SPI (using rock64_write_spi_flash.sh )
But I have kernel panics when booting with DEFAULT LibreELEC. I don't know how to select menu when booting I see nothing on screen.

No problem to boot Ubuntu .

Has Someone some ideas ?

Thanks to @maal's instructions, I wrote a dual boot tutorial available here:

Thanks,

If I'm correct for TimeOut it's 1/10 s. 120 give 12 s notre 2 min.
