Bootloader versions are a bit tricky. Here we have a collection of tested bootloaders and associated bugs.

Contents

Identifying version for a u-boot.bin image

The following command should tell you which version of a bootloader is contained in a particular image :

$ strings gta02v5_and_up-u-boot.bin  | grep U-Boot

Identifying current boot-loader version

The version is displayed on top of the booloader's menu.

Being connected to it, the version command can also be used.

Tested versions

U-Boot version Comment Hang on boot ttyACM0 flowcontrol Boot from SD
1.2.0-moko9_r0 2007.08 snapshot no hangs a bit buggy crashes
1.2.0-moko9_r8 SH1-included no hangs a bit buggy works
1.2.0-moko9_r13 "good-for-sd-boot" hangs  ? works

Bugs

Hang on boot

Bug #887: U-Boot initialization race condition: Hangs on boot

Booting directly makes the kernel oops, but booting via the menu works.

ttyACM0 flowcontrol

Bug #? (Comment 4 here?)

In the USB u-boot console, fast input seems to work but fast output is buggy: for example, random parts of printenv go missing.

Boot from SD

Bug #799: data abort while reading from SD Cards

Booting from SD fails. mmcinit works but trying to access the filesystem causes a crash.

TBD

Identifying current boot-loader version

The version is displayed on top of the booloader's menu.

Being connected to it, the version command can also be used.
