ARM64 – Odroid C2 U-Boot – More Progress..

Thanks to an additional U-Boot patch from Carlo Caione, it is now possible to (partially) boot the mainline Kernel from U-Boot on an eMMC module, as well as from SDcard..    Patch details here:

=> mmc part
Partition Map for MMC device 0 -- Partition Type: DOS
Part Start Sector Num Sectors UUID         Type
 1   2048         56973312    d3630000-01   83
 2   56975360     4096000     d3630000-02   82

As I mentioned in an earlier article, it is not -yet – possible to boot the Kernel all the way from MMC devices, as support is not in the current (May 22) version of Linux-Next..
