   42: # Installation
   43: 
   44: ## A10 / A20 based boards
   45: 
   46: * Start with an ARMv7 image from *evbarm-earmv7hf/binary/gzimg/* such as *beaglebone.img*
   47: * Download a U-Boot build for your board from the linux-sunxi web site <http://dl.linux-sunxi.org/nightly/u-boot-sunxi/u-boot-sunxi/u-boot-sunxi-latest/>
   48: * Write the *u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin* loader to the base image:
   49: [[!template  id=programlisting text="""
   50: # dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=beaglebone.img bs=1k seek=8 conv=notrunc
   51: """]]
   52: * Write the image to an SD card.
   53: * Copy the kernel (netbsd.ub) for your board to the root of the MS-DOS partition.
   54: * Create or edit uEnv.txt on the MS-DOS partition:
   55: [[!template  id=programlisting text="""
   56: bootargs=root=ld0a
   57: uenvcmd=mmc dev 0; mmc rescan; fatload mmc 0:1 82000000 netbsd.ub; bootm 82000000
   58: """]]
   59: 
   60: ## A31 based boards
   61: 
   62: TBD.
   63: 
   64: # Big (endian) fun
   65: 
   66: You can run this boards with a little endian (this is the default and implied by above install instructions)
   67: or with a big endian kernel and userland. However, kernel and userland endianness needs to match.
   68: 
   69: To build a big endian release (or sets) use 
   70: [[!template  id=programlisting text="""
   71: ./build.sh -m evbearmv7hf-eb 
   72: """]]
   73: where -eb means endianness big, hf is hardware floating point support, and earm is the modern "extended" ABI for ARM CPUs, and finally v7 is version 7 of the supported instruction set.
