Thanks for confirming. To be clear, I don't support removing the instructions from the Wiki. In my watching Android-IA / Celadon over the years, stuff that gets removed, people jump to the conclusion there is no interest or need.

For anyone in the community bringing up hardware, this is a rather critical need. Android is not Fuchsia, and nobody in the community is going to work on it without a traditional bootloader.

I think this should get flagged as a critical bug and the bootloader team should fix it, ASAP with priority. GRUB should always just work.

Unfortunately GRUB has been broken for a long time and IMO the
instructions to build it should be removed from the wiki until it works
again. I've tried to contact some folks to remove them but it's been
unsuccessful :/
