I'm trying to reinstall gentoo to BananaPI M2-Ultra (sunxi-linux and u-boot works) with use of Mainline U-Boot and Kernel since there is a support.
But it's not booting at all - only red led signalizing power is connected and blinking LAN leds if it's connected to network.
I used these steps:
crossdev --g 9.3.0 --b 2.33.1-r1 --l 2.30-r8 --k 4.4 -S -P -v EXTRA_ECONF="-march=armv7-a -mfpu=neon-vfpv4 -ffast-math" -t armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi

git clone --branch v2019.10 --depth 1 git://
make CROSS_COMPILE=armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi- Bananapi_M2_Ultra_defconfig
make CROSS_COMPILE=armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi-
dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/sdX bs=1024 seek=8

kernel (gentoo-sources 5.7.2):
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi- sunxi_defconfig
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi- menuconfig
make -j20 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi- zImage
make -j20 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=armv7a-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi- dtbs

setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootwait rootfstype=f2fs panic=10
load mmc 0:1 0x43000000 sun8i-r40-bananapi-m2-ultra.dtb || load mmc 0:1 0x43000000 boot/sun8i-r40-bananapi-m2-ultra.dtb
load mmc 0:1 0x42000000 zImage || load mmc 0:1 0x42000000 boot/zImage
bootz 0x42000000 - 0x43000000

mkimage -C none -A arm -T script -d boot.cmd boot.scr
