cr1901_moderntinyfpga: Is there a process for upgrading the bootloader for tinyfpga BX from the old one? Do you have any particular flashing application you use (flashrom seems overkill for this)?13:47

tinyfpgaI don’t yet have a process...but I have a couple ideas15:10
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: it depends actually, if it’s a BX, then it’s easy...just use tinyprog -l to see where the bootloader is located then use the -a option to specific the address when programming a new bootloader15:11
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: if you have a B2’s more complicated15:11
cr1901_modernI have a tinyfpga B215:11
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: for the B2 boards you should first write the new bootloader as a user bitstream15:12
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: and you have to do that with tinyfpgab15:12
cr1901_modernI don't remember how I know this, but user bitstream begins at 0x30000 on B215:12
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: at that point you could use tinyprog to replace the old bootloader but then you will also want to update the metadata15:13
cr1901_modernThat's the thing... does my board even have metadata?15:13
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: I really need to create a script to do this15:13
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: the old boards have no metadata15:13
tinyfpgacr1901_modern: which is OK, but not convenient15:13
cr1901_moderncan the new bootloader write to sectors 0-3 to add the relevant metadata and then write-protect them?15:14
* cr1901_modern will attempt to do the upgrade in a bit, afk for now15:17
