[fedora-arm] Re: [Test-Announce] Fedora 34 Candidate RC-1.1 Available Now!

To flash SPI rom a running os on Pinebook Pro you can flash SPI like this:
Writing to SPI Flash:
# flash_erase /dev/mtd0 0 0
# dd if=spiflash.bin of=/dev/mtd0

If dd doesn't work for you (see #2), try nandwrite:
# nandwrite -p /dev/mtd0 spiflash.bin

You can get flash_erase and nandwrite by installing mtd-utils package.

Warning! If somthing go wrong with flashing, you need to short circut the SPI to get it reset.
Make sure you flash_erase before trying to write to SPI, I missed that a couple of times and I ended up with corrupt SPI and had to short circut.

As far as I have tried the Fedora Kernel can not start the disply on Pinebook Pro. You can only get output on serial over UART.
