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


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/
