Again I fell into this trap: in order to install FreeBSD, you first need to have FreeBSD installed.

``Some precompiled u-boot are available via ports and packages. For instance, you can simply enter pkg install u-boot-cubieboard...''

Citizens, does anyone have a file from the sysutils/u-boot-orangepi-zero package? 🤣

@yrabbit Packages are available on pkg.FreeBSD.org i.e.

pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:12:amd

Directory listing is disabled for the "All" directories, so to "guess" the file name, checkout the port version on freshport and build the file name with "<port-name>-<version>.txz"

Hope this helps!

Thank you. I was already there and swore obscenely when I saw the ban on listing the directory. It just didn't occur to me to go through the options for the package name🙂

10x!
I downloaded. It still doesn't work, probably because making a FAT32 (LBA) boot partition was not a good idea🤣
