How about this one?

It gets the main firmware only. To fetch boot2,
you either need to use symbols (88W8385 driver)
or dump the eeprom (88W8388).

For an 88W8388 eeprom, boot2 length is at 0x0004
and boot2 offset (or "other junk" length) is at 0x0008.
Both are 32-bit. An eeprom image may be byte-swapped.

I do blinking LEDs too:
git clone git://
