Building manual


This document describes the procedure for compiling coreboot for Protectli VP4630, VP4650 and VP4670.


Build Dasharo firmware

Since version v1.0.18 VP4630 and VP4650 use different configuration file than VP4670. Versions v1.0.17 and older do not support VP4650 and VP4670 at all.

  1. Clone the coreboot repository:

    git clone
  2. Checkout the desired version, e.g. v1.0.18:

    cd coreboot
    git checkout protectli_vault_cml_v1.0.18
  3. Checkout submodules:

    git submodule update --init --checkout
  4. Obtain the Protectli blobs package and extract it to 3rdparty/blobs/mainboard directory (or keep it as file in the coreboot directory, the build script will extract it if needed in step 5).

  5. Build the firmware v1.0.18 or newer:

    • for VP4630 and VP4650

      ./ vp4630_vp4650
    • for VP4670

      ./ vp4670

    NOTICE: VP4630 and VP4650 binary will not work on VP4670 and vice versa. They use different FSP variants.

    Versions v1.0.17 and earlier support only VP4630 and can be built using the following command:

    ./ vp46xx

    The resulting coreboot image will be placed in build/coreboot.rom.
