MIP405 Downloads


MPL AG actively participates in the development of the Universal Bootloader (U-Boot), the successor of the former PPCBoot. Although the current version number is rather low, the inheritance of the PPCBoot project ensures a mature product.

We make tested binaries available for our PPC based products only, though. The documentation covering the installation of those binaries on the MIP405 is located in the MIP405 Documentation Area of this home page.

Binary Images Version Remark
u-boot_0_3_2-MIP405.zip 0.3.2 Mandatory upgrade. No action required for systems equipped with PPCBOOT!
u-boot.img 1.1.3
u-boot.img 2011.03 Latest MPL supported version. Patches are available here: MPL patches

Please have a look at http://sourceforge.net/projects/u-boot for the source code of the U-Boot for the MPL MIP405.
