I want to boot a custom kernel on my LeMaker HiKey with a Debian rootfs. I don’t know if the HiKey has been merged in the mainline kernel yet. I searched for old forum posts and documents, but they lead me to dead links (404s on github) or to the HiKeyUEFI page that mentions updating grub and not much beyond that. It’s not clear to me what the steps are, if any.
What I’ve gathered so far is to clone the 96boards/linux repo. Unsure of which branch to checkout, I assume you’d run defconfig and then run the make command with ARCH=arm64 and CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- to create the image and dtb. Then I’m lost from there.
Correct me if I’m wrong. Any ideas?
