My work often requires booting AArch64 fast models. As there are two of them and each has different arguments I decided to write simple script to handle that.
Script takes three arguments:
- rootfs (can be skipped)
- model type (foundation/rtsm — first one as default)
This is work in progress — for example there is no network configured for RTSM yet. But I hope that it will be useful for other users.
