new u-boot ? uboot?

Post by satiropan »

hello, I have this AmigaOne G3-SE board with u-boot version 1.1.4, 16 march 2006.
I have seen on the u-boot site, there are many other more recent versions.
the more recent one that still has the board/MAI/Amigaone folder is in the u-boot-2010.06.tar.bz2 archive.
should I upgrade my u-boot to this last one? of course I would write it on a new eprom chip and keep aside in safe the original one.
what do you think?
regards

Don't try to install the U-Boot from any Internet site. The U-Boot in the A1s is a special version containing dongle code, and it can only be updated or changed by running Hyperion's U-Boot Updater.

well, my plan is to write it on a spare eprom, and keep the original in safe...

I think we should get you an AmigaOne 500 system. ;)

but I would lose the enjoyment of the fight with the amigaone g3-se! instead now, apart from the 3com chip not working, it seems almost ok.
at the momento i have radeon 9200 256MB ddr, sb live! that will be soon swapped with a muse 5.1, Nec USB card, rtl3189, os4.1up6.
of course the tendency is to improve every little thingy I can.
