Booting Xillinux with <some_name>.bit, not xillydemo.bit

Hello,

what changes one should do and where(device tree, boot.bin etc.) in order to boot Xillinux with a .bit file that has different name than xillydemo.bit?

Hello,

The bitfile is loaded by U-boot. In principle, an environment variable needs to be modified to make it load a file with a different name. You may override the default setting and save it to the QSPI flash. This is briefly discussed in section 4.3.3 of the Getting started with Xillinux guide:
