I am trying to update the SPI on a Pine64 Rockpro64. I have flashed the
SPI with ayufan's uboot, Debian starts. Now I want to flash the SPI with
Fedora's uboot. Here are the steps to load the Fedora uboot on the SPI:
- I made the microSD using the arm-image-installer,
- loaded the microSD in the RockPro,
- entered the command sf probe in the u-boot prompt,
- receive the message
Invalid bus 0 (err=-19)
Failed to initialize SPI flash at 0:0 (error -19).
I have tried the erase firmware available from ayufan's repository and
have the same outcome.
Am I grounding the SPI pin too long? Do I need to compile the firmware

Cypress/Infineon and now Synaptics) have got new firmwares, I'm giving
a heads up because in some cases the firmwares are being updated from
firmwares that date back to 2014 so no doubt there's quite some
If you run into a problem just report it in bugzilla in the usual manner.
On the plus side there's at least one CVE I'm aware of and for some of
the older firmwares I've little doubt there's quite a few more.
I have a new Rasberry Pi 4b with 8gigs of ram. I installed the Fedora
33 1.3 image. Everything installs ok. Reboots fine. No problems.
If I update using dnf, video no longer works. (I get a corrupted
Is this a known issue?
Also the verify file on the web site is for the 1.2 image, not the 1.3
