Instruction of how to fix 2 seconds delay at boot and not working reboot

I was looking for environment that helps me to edit/compile U-boot loader to disable 2 seconds delay at boot time…Cuz I’m completely new to some kernel editing stuff. So I create it and sharing with you guys))) + Bonus is that now $ reboot stuck bug is fixed by created boot-loader and board can reboot as expected :+1:
The Official instruction doesn’t work for me (there were many errors on different stages) but you should read it to understand the process and where most files and commands were taken. Without this instruction I had 0 chances to create the environment so I want to thank the Radxa developers!

Download Debian ISO. File.

While downloading Debian ISO install VirtualBox. File.

Install Debian on VirtualBox (before install make shure you set option Bridged adapter for Adapter 1 This will give you direct IP of Debian SSH) When on installing process create user pol. All commands path are with pol name in (ex. /home/pol/fip/radxa-zero/).
Use any instruction if needed ex. video
UPD: Be careful - building kernel uses lot of resources (use minimum 15GB virtual HDD space, 2-3GB RAM and as many CPU cores as you can).

To enable SSH on Debian after installing:

sudo su
apt install net-tools
apt-get install openssh-server


$ ifconfig -a

to find out IP of Debian host and you are good to make SSH connection directly from any SSH client you prefer.
Now get all necessary packages:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
apt-get install -y wget
apt install bc nano mc build-essential autoconf libtool cmake pkg-config git python-dev swig libpcre3-dev libnode-dev gawk wget diffstat bison flex device-tree-compiler libncurses5-dev gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu g+±aarch64-linux-gnu binfmt-support
apt-get install binfmt-support qemu-user-static
apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y git
git clone -b radxa-zero-v2021.07
git clone
apt-get install -y gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu device-tree-compiler libncurses5 libncurses5-dev
apt-get install -y bc python dosfstools flex build-essential libssl-dev mtools
tar xvf gcc-arm-10.3-2021.07-x86_64-aarch64-none-elf.tar.xz -C /opt
apt-get install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf
apt install fastboot
apt-get install -y python3-pip
pip3 install git+

Now its time to do some cool hacking))
To edit delay time U-boot Enairment variable are used. Link.
Set bootdelay variable to -2 to boot without delay and not check for abort.
Lets do it:

nano “/home/rock/u-boot/configs/radxa-zero_defconfig”

Add line
before line
Then close nano with saving changes.

And here comes the compiling parts:

cd u-boot
export ARCH=arm
export CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu-
make radxa-zero_defconfig

Then create binaries:

cp u-boot.bin …/fip/radxa-zero/bl33.bin
cd …/fip/radxa-zero

root@debian:/home/pol/u-boot# export ARCH=arm
export CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu-
root@debian:/home/pol/u-boot# make

This are devices that should be redirected from Windows to VirtualBox on next steps so Debian could find radxa zero board and flash the bootloader (otherwise you will get errors):

reboot board and press USB button (add Amilogic GX-CHIP to VirtualBox)

Switch board power and you are good to go.
Now you have your own environment to edit some Linux stuff. I hope this instruction was helpful to someone. If you get errors on some stages - fill free to asking the questions cuz that forums are for! :wink:
If you need *bin files only. Link.


Creation of this instruction inspired by some post-soviet trolls offended by life and people I guess, they are disrespecting and discrediting open source and knowledge sharing philosophy… So let’s show them that they are wrong… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
