Barebox uses the same build (Kbuild) and configuration (Kconfig) tools as the Linux kernel.

1) First you need to clone the tree

git clone git://

Most probably you want to use a released Barebox version, by running 'git checkout <version>'. Check which versions are available with 'git tag -l' and use the latest one.

2) Then you need to configure it:

make mini2440_defconfig

3) Compile it


4) Now you need to flash the nand for this you can use OpenOCD


you can use framebuffer to display a splash screen

Where to purchase

and order from follows url:


now you need so start OpenOCD. For this you need to specify the interface (First) and then the board

for this I just a Jlink

openocd -f interface/jlink.cfg -f target/samsung_s3c2440.cfg -c "adapter_khz 12000"

Flashing barebox And then the following steps:

  • connect a terminal application to the mini2440's serial connector
  • connect the mini2440 to a working network
  • switch S2 to boot from NOR to boot into 'supervivi'
  • switch on your mini2440
  • run the OpenOCD daemon configured with the file shown above
  • connect to the OpenOCD daemon via 'telnet'.
  • run the following commands to download a barebox into your target

> halt
> load_image \<path to the 'barebox.bin'\> 0x31000000 bin
> resume 0x31000000

Now a barebox is starting from an already initialized CPU and SDRAM (done by 'supervivi').

Change to your terminal console and configure the network first. Adapt the following settings to your network:


A 'ping' to your TFTP server should bring a " alive" message now.

We are ready now to program a barebox into the NAND flash:

erase /dev/
tftp barebox.bin /dev/
