Manjaro Stable Release Boot Method to be used?

Hello Khadas Team,

I am preparing for Manjaro ARM Stable release that should be available by next weekend.
Manjaro ARM 22-02

I wanted to ask which boot method should be kept default ?
Mainline uboot or bootscript over bsp uboot on emmc ?


  • Default image with Mainline Uboot can be used with Krescue to just flash it to emmc without any manual changes so it does not break with future update.
  • No need to depend on BSP Uboot.


  • With Mainline Uboot user’s will need to enter into Maskrom mode for Vim3 and Vim3L to boot.
  • Above point will have to be followed on every boot.

I have been using Mainline uboot for Vim1 & Vim2 as they can boot over BSP without manual intervention. So this question is regarding Vim3 and Vim3L only.

Kindly let me know by tomorrow.

It’s your decision. Choose the method that you want to support.

I want to move to Mainline uboot and avoid bootscripts :x:

Sounds like a good plan. Carry on :slight_smile:

Yes, it’s OK to move to mainline u-boot. :wink:
