  • SMU needs freed
  • ATOMBIOS is theoretically not needed, but see: openatom. video firmware is problematic, needs to be freed

System does boot without microcode updates.

TODO: investigate other issues.

Source code in coreboot is AGESA. This is not source code, it's spaghetti code from AMD and may aswell be binary blobs. Rewrite is needed.

Librecore project (via damo22's effort) seems to be working on this.

Funding may be required, to pay for the work.
