5.1. Current Versions

Das U-Boot (or just "U-Boot" for short) is Open Source Firmware for Embedded PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, x86 and other processors. The U-Boot project is hosted by DENX, where you can also find the project home page: http://www.denx.de/wiki/U-Boot/

The current version of the U-Boot source code can be retrieved from the DENX "git" repository.

You can browse the "git" repositories at http://git.denx.de/

The trees can be accessed through the git, HTTP, and rsync protocols. For example you can use one of the following commands to create a local clone of one of the source trees:

git clone git://git.denx.de/u-boot.git u-boot/
git clone http://git.denx.de/u-boot.git u-boot/
git clone rsync://git.denx.de/u-boot.git u-boot/

For details please see here.

Official releases of U-Boot are also available through FTP. Compressed tar archives can downloaded from the directory ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/u-boot/.
