AMD has generated a simpler and more flexible license agreement for using proprietary precompiled binary images. The new agreement is intended to cover all blobs in the directory structure below where the license resides and eliminates any unique agreements previously provided for individual products.
A 3rdparty/amd_blobs repo now exists for distributing new blobs to coreboot developers and consumers. Images for older products will be moved to amd_blobs as time permits.
By cloning the amd_blobs repo, you will be agreeing to the license agreement contained there.
The language of the agreement is duplicated below for your reference. The official license agreement may be found inside the Git repository.
