Truly a win for freedom hardware

Lets hope they next add an IOMMU.

Since the ZSBL lives in a mask ROM on the FU540-C000 there is no way to replace it, but you can at least re-generate the contents of the ROM and then verify that it matches the contents of a real HiFive Unleashed. We’ve posted a copy of the contents of the mask ROM at https://github.com/sifive/freedom-u540-c000-bootloader, the first person to submit a pull request that can exactly reproduce that ROM will get a HiFive Unleashed board!"

Sweet :D

I am trying that for sure!


Here is a linky to the actual mask rom for lazy people.
