I wasn't aware piCore mounted the first partition as /boot like Raspbian,
I always thought it was mounted as /mnt/mmcblk0p1 by default.

Ah! i was also working from memory ,..
"boot_folder" not literally mounted @ '/boot'
but loosely meaning  "boot partition"   ;)

the confusion i guess is mount points vs  partition labels ,
as you point out the first "firmware/boot" partition
is usually mounted as  /boot in Raspbian (the pi default os)   also labeled "boot"
and mounted at /mnt/mmcblk0p1 on picore by default!

For anyone else like me that's looking to get a CM3+ running with piCore.  I didn't really want to dive into using v10 as it's not released.  In a bit of poking I was able to use an exising 9.0.3 piCore image I had setup and just replaced the following files from the master of the raspberry pi firmware repo (link below).


(commit 9fd387c96353dd9983aa73bd33b541926de93789 in case it really matters)

Not sure how ghetto this, it but on a first pass all seems to be working. 

[Edit]: I clearly posted too quickly.  The single USB port doesn't even seem to recognize a keyboard, so not exactly a win.

   I was trying to install PiCore 9.0.3 on a Raspberry Pi3A+ but only getting as far as the rainbow screen.

I see in these posts at there is a problem with version 9 and the Pi3 and suggestions to use version 10,
but I cannot find a link, on this page: http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/ports.html

Can anyone send me a link to version 10 or any version that will install on a Pi3A+ ?
