- Optional 1x M.2 2280 slot

** Installation **

Copy dtb from build_dir to bin/ and run tftpserver there:
$ cp ./build_dir/target-aarch64_cortex-a53_musl/linux-mvebu_cortexa53/
$ in.tftpd -L -s bin/targets/mvebu/cortexa53/

Connect to the device UART via microUSB port on the back side and power on the device.

Power on the device and hit any key to stop the autoboot.

Set serverip (host IP) and ipaddr (any free IP address on the same subnet), e.g:
$ setenv serverip # Host
$ setenv ipaddr # Device

Ping server to confirm network is working:
$ ping $serverip
Using neta@30000 device
host is alive

Tftpboot the firmware:
$ tftpboot $kernel_addr_r openwrt-mvebu-cortexa53-globalscale_espressobin-ultra-initramfs-kernel.bin
$ tftpboot $fdt_addr_r armada-3720-espressobin-ultra.dtb

Set the console and boot the image:
$ setenv bootargs $console
$ booti $kernel_addr_r - $fdt_addr_r

Once the initramfs is booted, transfer openwrt-mvebu-cortexa53-globalscale_espressobin-ultra-squashfs-sdcard.img.gz
to /tmp dir on the device.

Gunzip and dd the image:
$ gunzip /tmp/openwrt-mvebu-cortexa53-globalscale_espressobin-ultra-squashfs-sdcard.img.gz
$ dd if=/tmp/openwrt-mvebu-cortexa53-globalscale_espressobin-ultra-squashfs-sdcard.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 && sync

Reboot the device.
