There is a way to do it which requires a parabola installation (for
instance for x86), which works for devices that have their bootloader
on microSD:
- Find the URL of the bootloader package for your device and download
- install archlinuxarm-keyring
- use pacman-key to verify the bootloader package
- extract the bootloader package and run the commands to copy it to the
  microSD using the command provided by the package install script.
- uncompress the tarball, the booloader should figure by itself how to
  boot Parabola.

Ideally the bootloaders could be shipped in a generic image tarball and
the install scripts made more easily accessible to have easier install

Paul also might have been working on scripts to automate that.
