Dear Mr. Mehrtens,

I'd like install Openwrt on SPI Flash by Orange Pi R1 (without SD-Card).

1. uboot-sunxi with SPI Support. It was simple: ( 
https://github.com/u-boot/u-boot/pull/34 ... Yes, i know about u-boot 
patch rules. I'll do it later)

2. SPI Flash partitions. It was also easy. (Example: 

3. Prepare u-boot env rules (it should be also easy: 
https://linux-sunxi.org/Bootable_SPI_flash )

My problem is build a sysuprade.bin image. Right now the sunxi target 
use SD-Card images. And I have no idea how it should be implemented in 

Can you please provide me ? or maybe you know who can help me ?

We need Orange Pi R1 SPI image for our Freifunk-Dresden community:


Best regards
