> Hello Ahmad,
> while doing the bisecting it turned out, that the issue with w25q128 is not related to a specific Barebox version
> but to 2nd chip select of the SPI bus.
> In older products we are using Barebox-2016.07.0 and there is just the SPI NOR as single SPI slave (spi0_cs0).
> In the pinmux only spi0_cs0 is multiplexed. And this binary works fine on SOM with n25q128a13 as well as w25q128.
> In newer products we are using Barebox-2021.07.0 and there we have a TPM (spi0_cs1) as 2nd SPI slave.
> Since Barebox doesn´t support TPM I have removed the TPM slave node from spi0, but sp0_cs1 is still pinmuxed.
> This is just because I reuse pinmux section from the Linux dts.
> Whenever sp0_cs1 is pinmuxed I observe timeouts with w25q128.
> Strange thing here is that exactly the same binary works without issues on SOM with n25q128a13.
> Also in the Linux dts the spi0_cs1 doesn´t cause any issue and TPM as well as w25q128 are working perfectly fine.
> So removing the spi0_cs1 from the Barebox dts fixes my issue - please refer to dts below.
> Although I have a working solution I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

A click on the SCLK on the chipselect switch may have an effect.
