Green screen. Manjaro

how can I boot completely from sd and get rid of the green screen. I want to use mandjaro. When the green screen problem is completely resolved. Please detailed instructions, I just do not know English well and it’s hard for me to understand the firmware

Here are some options I have posted.

which Android should I use?

You either need to use mainline u-boot or chainload mainline u-boot from the vendor u-boot; this is done via the boot autoscript files and a new (mainline) u-boot file.

Hi @chewitt i have question 4u maybe u can know solution :wink: some times ago i have test it and …

PS: but chainload vendor uboot from mainline still works !

IMHO chainloading is not required on any Khadas board because mainline u-boot supports all of your boards. Just write an image with mainline u-boot direct to the eMMC, boot using a simple extlinux.conf and avoid all the autoscript and multi-boot complexity. If people want to run another distro … go write that image (with appopriate u-boot) to eMMC instead. I’m not entirely surprised things don’t work from vendor u-boot.

mainline uboot supported all boards but with many limits :wink:
for example spifc - like many other things not work

So what’s your plan to add spifc support to mainline u-boot?

yes ! i will try to do it soon

what other items are not working?
