  1. There are Espressobin variants with just 512MB of memory. So if your image needs to be compatible with more variants, ensure that you place all parts in first 512 MB of RAM. I'm not sure where is running U-Boot after relocation and where it is malloc area. So choose address which does not conflict with it. You can look at RAM layout used on A3720 CPU: https://git.trustedfirmware.org/TF-A/trusted-firmware-a.git/tree/plat/marvell/armada/a3k/common/include/platform_def.h?h=v2.6
  2. IIRC those were chosen as the first available space for some common image sizes. I do not have full knowledge of FIT images, but above addresses seems to be wrong. They are above 1GB of space and therefore it is required to have at least 2GB of RAM. If you have less then this is expected - CRASH. Could you chose lower address for loading of those FIT sub-images?
  3. USB 3.0 is 5Gbps, PCIe 2.1 is 5Gbps and SATA is 6Gbps. For loading you should use some unused space in RAM. Default value of of those variables should contain appropriate values. And they may change between releases, that is why addresses are in variables.
  4. I have tested it on two different A3720 devices and on both it worked. And yes, it is clean U-Boot 2022.04 without any additional patches. So really do not know what can trigger this issue. There can be memory corruption or any other issue which could depend on linker layout, memory usage, etc... But as I cannot reproduce it, it is really hard for me to debug.
  5. I tried to debug this issue, but I'm not able to reproduce it. I always have correct scriptaddr env name.

  6. About criptaddr - this looks like a bug in U-Boot and needs to be fixed. It really should be scriptaddr. I will try to look at it where is the issue. Last time I tested it I did not see such issue.
  7. U-Boot is part of the firmware package and cannot be flashed separately on Espressobin. So you always have to flash full firmware, not just U-Boot. There are 3 variants of Armada 3720 CPU used in Espressobin: 800 MHz, 1 GHz and 1.2 GHz. And more variants of soldered DDR chips on Espressobin. You have to choose firmware which matches your CPU and DDR (3 or 4 and correct size). If you do not know what you have, you can look at chips markings to recognize it (so in this case you need to look what is under headsink). You can also look at frequences, DDR sizes and other debug information on the serial console to deduce it (but this works only in case you already have running correct firmware; factory firmware should be correct).
  8. Before upgrading U-Boot, in case your MAC addresses were not wiped out, you should print them in U-Boot console and remember/backup them. After upgrading U-Boot to the new version, you should reset enviroment to default. Latest U-Boot preserve MAC addresses variables. But if your U-Boot version uses different storage offset for env variables then all env variables (including MAC addresses) would be lost. So that is why backup is required. Some Espressobin boards have MAC addresses printed on the sticker/label, which is suitable backup. To access env variables from Linux system, you need to set /etc/fw_env.config correctly. With new U-Boot version, partition number is available in /proc/mtd at u-boot-env line and offset is always zero. Old U-Boot versions have it different.
  9. In new U-Boot you should not change addr and boot env variables.
  10. Ad eMMC detection in U-Boot: It is enabled by default and disabled+removed at runtime if no eMMC module is detected. See code: https://source.denx.de/u-boot/u-boot/-/blob/v2022.04/board/Marvell/mvebu_armada-37xx/board.c#L125-134 https://source.denx.de/u-boot/u-boot/-/blob/v2022.04/arch/arm/dts/armada-3720-espressobin-u-boot.dtsi#L32-38
  11. How could the mainline sources be patched with this hotfix? It is already in the u-boot master branch.
  12. This is a bug in U-Boot for which I sent a hotfix recently: http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/uboot/patch/20220323161942.7308-1-pali@kernel.org/ Hotfix should appear in master branch ASAP and will be part of U-Boot 2022.04 release. Ideally please test this hotfix, to ensure that it will be fixed in 2022.04. TF-A and U-Boot is 64-bit ARM code and therefore must be built with aarch64 cross compiler. WTMI firmware (including the new one in mox-boot-builder repo) is 32-bit ARM code and must be built with armv7 cross compiler for Cortex M3. It does not matter if you use softfp or hardfp or linux or gnueabi cross toolchain as firmware is standalone freestanding code and Makefiles override all CPU / arch gcc flags to use correct one. together with ignoring / skipping system pre-compiled CRT code (which is gnueabi/softfp/hardfp specific). So it always should generate correct code or throw compile errors (when compiler does not support required code generation). See TF-A documentation. You can use either precompiled crypto++ libraries (e.g. provided by OS by libcrypto++-dev) or you can compile crypto++ libraries from sources as part of build process. crypto++ libraries are just dependency for host tool which generate flashable A3720 firmware image and it is your choice which version of crypto++ libraries do you want to use. Somebody prefer to use system host pre-compiled libraries, somebody prefer to compile everything from sources.
  13. U-Boot automatically fills variable ${fdtfile} to marvell/armada-3720-espressobin-v7.dtb or marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb (or with -emmc.dtb suffix) at the runtime based on detected espressobin variant. Variable ${fdtfile} is standard distroboot variable so you can use it in your boot script to make booting universal.
  14. Espressobin v5 has WAN port on different position as Espressobin v7. This is the fact (you can look into the official Espressobin manuals) and espressobin v7 DTS file has it reflected compared with espressobin v5 DTS file.
  15. Just quick search in my emails found this link: https://github.com/armbian/build/issues/2861 And as @y52 pointed, file /boot/armbianEnv.txt has problems too.
  16. Interesting... I do not know. Just in case did not lan0 and lan1 got configured some ip address? Or Is not dhcpd also listening (for some reason) also on lan0 and lan1? Or is not there some dangling lease (stored in disk lease file) which could conflict? I do not know how exaclty is dhcpd detecting these duplicates, but it smells like a loop in switching/networking.
  17. If you have configured bridge interface br0 based on lan0 and lan1 then you should not touch lan0 and lan1 and should not run on these interfaces any SW. Last time I did it, it was closed. Why should I do it again? Sorry, thanks, I will not spend my time with it again with something which would be closed/dropped.
  18. Yea... it is known that Armbian wants users to not use correct MAC addresses. I have reported it many times and the last thing which was done, was removal of permanent MAC addresses from the board, which is totally insane...
  19. I hope that after calling setenv you can also called saveenv so it was deleted also from env storage... ... because this is not correct. You should have that your one MAC address on all lan0, lan1 and wan interfaces. Could you check if boot script does not overwrite these mac addresses? Also could you check if you system does not have in some (probably autogenerated?) file stored those different MAC addresses?
  20. Now I spotted that you forgot to remove rest of mtdparts ,-(reserved). Via journalctl. Log should be in some file in /var/log. Some of them are text, but soem (journald) are binary. Espressobin does not have power switch like ATX PC boards, so software cannot power off Espressobin HW. For this reason that function a3700_system_off (in TF-A) is not implemented. Kernel after stopping all servides, sent instruction to firmware (TF-A) to power down board and kernel itself stopped exection. Firmware (TF-A) received command and because it cannot do anything it just printed that error message and went to infinite loop (hang). This state is like in old compuers... when they printed message you can now halt... It is possible to implement a3700_system_off function in TF-A. But question is, what it should do?
  21. So if they are in boot script then remove them from boot script. Do not set loglevel= at all. IIRC Setting loglevel to zero disables it completely. Your removal of mtdparts= is OK, it should be removed completely.
  22. No. Into serial console output is automatically printed dmesg output. Remove hardcoded mtdparts= option. U-Boot already supplied correct one via DT. Missing logs are probably caused by loglevel=1 option. Remove it too.
  23. Uff... I'm not sure if there is any Debian doc which explain all these things with U-Boot. But basically standard installation of Debian via debootstrap+qemu to SD card with installing of additional package "flash-kernel" for Espressobin should work fine. That U-Boot document describe how distribution maintainers should prepare their systems and boot scripts to be compatible with U-Boot distroboot; document is not for end-users. Maybe it would be a good idea to write some document / wiki page how to exactly install Debian on SD card for Espressobin...
  24. You can ignore those errors... Anyway, it should be fixed now, so after calling git pull in mox-boot-builder directory, it is not needed to specify -i argument anymore.
  25. That you last attempt via make -i -C mox-boot-builder clean worked fine. It cleaned mox-boot-builder correctly.
