After dd'iong the main image file, i I even tried copying the u-boot file like the centos wiki shows, same result, nothing.

So as a follow up to this, the support isn't yet upstream for the H616
SoC [1], although it's not far off I'm not sure it if will land for
the 5.19 kernel.

Short answer is we don't currently support it, ATM it's too early to
tell if we'll be able to support it for F-37, but I will fix up the
firmware builds before then so when support does land upstream it
should just begin to work.
