Summary: Switch of boot mode for Raspberry Pi 4
Switch of boot mode for Raspberry Pi 4
In Alt, it is customary to load the kernel, dtb and initrd
using u-boot and configuration in extlinux.conf,
or using grub.
Firmware Raspberry Pi 4 loads and modifies dtb
according to config.txt configuration.
U-boot and grub can't do that.
The scripts in this package allow you to switch boot modes:
- Firmware loads the kernel, dtb, and initrd. U-boot is not used.
armv7l (armh) 32-bit system only:
- Firmware loads dtb. U-boot loads the kernel and initrd.
- U-boot loads the kernel, dtb, and initrd.
aarch64 64-bit system only:
- U-boot loads grub, grub loads kernel, dtb and initrd.
