Not able to write u-boot to SPI
#1
Hello everyone.

I have a trouble flashing uboot to my RockPro64 4GB variant. I am trying to use rock64_write_spi_flash.sh script, but nothing is flashing.

I made all steps according to wiki, booted from SD card, used latest ubuntu image, but everything I get is following error:


Code:
rock64@rockpro64:/dev$ sudo su
[sudo] password for rock64:
root@rockpro64:/dev# rock64_write_spi_flash.sh
Doing this will overwrite data stored on SPI Flash
 and it will require that you use eMMC or SD
 as your boot device.

Type YES to continue or Ctrl-C to abort.
YES

I have even tried steps written here: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?...e#pid40677   (,only changed the overlay address to "ff1d0000" to fit to RockPro64 dts).

I never flashed anything to SPI before, so it can't be messed up. I tried the SD card method with only ayufan uboot image and this don't work either. Nothing is written to it..

Hi! I have same issue.I tried all roms from https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-build/releases

I found two solution:
1. https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-u-boot/releases write image and do boot, spi will be writen, white led will blinking.
2. I was able to flash SPI using http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/ROCKPro...htly_Build , do download files from first link in os
#3
Please use this image to write to spi.
