Building manual


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


Build Dasharo BIOS firmware

This build procedure produces full firmware binary including blobs such as FSP, and ME. Currently, access to them is restricted to the OEM (Protectli) via a private repository.

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. v1.0.19:

    cd coreboot
    git checkout protectli_vault_cml_v1.0.19
  3. Checkout submodules:

    git submodule update --init --checkout
  4. Obtain the Protectli blobs package:

    Replace <PROTECTLI_BLOBS_REPO> with a a proper path to the repository in a form of: git@repo-path.git. You should checkout to the same tag as in case aof the coreboot repository.

    cd 3rdparty/blobs/mainboard/
    git init
    git remote add origin <PROTECTLI_BLOBS_REPO>
    git fetch origin && git checkout protectli_vault_cml_v1.0.19
    cd -
  5. Build the firmware v1.0.19 or newer:

    • for VP4630 and VP4650

      ./ vp4630_vp4650
    • for VP4670

      ./ vp4670

The resulting coreboot image will be placed in the coreboot directory as protectli_vault_cml_<version>_vp4630_vp4650.rom or protectli_vault_cml_<version>_vp4670.rom respectvely.
