Upstream ARM Trusted Firmware support Rockchip SoCs:




Build ATF

Here is a script to build ATF.

$ cat 


make realclean

CFLAGS='-gdwarf-2' \
CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- \
make PLAT=rk3399 DEBUG=0 ERROR_DEPRECATED=1 bl31

Because there is a blob of code for cortex-M0 in rk3399 ATF, so you need a compiler for it. Install it by:

sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-none-eabi

We can get bl31.elf bl31.bin when build completed.

Note: The latest version ATF(including rockchip version and upstream version) bl31.elf instead of bl31.bin, the bl31.bin is not available now.

Install ATF

Using U-Boot SPL FIT image

Copy the trust binary(optee.bin or bl31.elf) to u-boot root directory and rename it to tee.bin(armv7) or bl31.elf(armv8). Use below command to get u-boot.itb.

make u-boot.itb

The output u-boot.itb is a its based package including u-boot-nodtb.bin, board.dtb, and trust binaries which can be load by SPL.

Using Rockchip miniloader

Alternatively, you can use Rockchip miniloader and U-Boot instead which do not need SPL.

The ATF is loaded by miniloader, so it should be package to known format for miniloader

trust_merger rk_tools/RKTRUST/RK3399TRUST.ini trust.img

According to the partitions definition, write trust.img to offset 0x6000.
