Using u-boot with galaxy S2?

Added by Skoll RC about 1 month ago

Hi everyone,

I recently see that S2 can be used with u-boot bootloader (https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s2/general/uboot-bootloader-true-multiboot-t1680898). I would like to use replicant withe u-boot but I'm not sure if it's possible. has anyone tried this yet?

We've put our i9100 u-boot research on this here: https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/Upstream#Bootloader-status

Unfortunately no one has upstreamed the i9100 bootloader yet, but it sounds like there are some recent downstream projects that are trying to update and upstream their work: https://github.com/Talustus/i9100-uboot/issues/1#issuecomment-597615794

Thanks for the links. Is there a chance to have a completle freed phone oneday?
I mean a phone with uboot and replicant? (and if possible a working one as S3 and Note 2 are not realy functional yet)

Replicant developers have already been able to use u-boot with Replicant 9 and 10 on the i9300 (Galaxy S3) via this downstream u-boot work here: https://github.com/fourkbomb/u-boot

We are now looking for a way to install it that doesn't require opening up the phone and shorting a resister. We might be able to use lthor, but we are still researching: https://redmine.replicant.us/issues/2027
