Just wondering if it's possible to have U-boot ported to the Western Digital My Cloud Mirror (gen1).

I have one running Linux hooked up to a serial console and I can test/supply info if wanted. Also, I don't know how much work it would be so I'm not sure if it's worth the effort.

buco,

The old u-boot structure was quite easy to roll a new u-boot. But the way u-boot has evolved over the years, it got bigger and now there are more moving parts for the Armada SoCs. Harder to debug.

So eventhough I could roll new Armada u-boot if I have more free time, but it's too much efforts for the benefits.
