     12== U-Boot on Openmoko status ==
     13
     14Openmoko uses a private fork of U-Boot (source available in their Git repository) which is not part of the up-stream sources. U-Boot is ''deprecated'' as a booting solution for Openmoko. Nevertheless it still comes as the default loader.

     16Openmoko plan to replace U-Boot with Qi, a stripped down version of Openmoko U-Boot. It has practically no features (no boot menu, no DFU, no API) but it presumably supports u-Boot images as the primary means of booting.

     18Qi does much less HW initialization than U-Boot so it may be necessary to add more HW initialization to HelenOS to support it. (E.g. turning on display backlight).
