Ah ok, maybe you need the v then. Have you checked dmesg to see if it's actually loading the driver first?
yeah, driver is loading according to dmesg, but actually only black screen with backlight on display all the time, fb0 & fb1 are listed in /dev. con2fbmap does nothing. probably smth is missing

You got any pictures of the wiring?
Get a small cheep LCD in your project https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2312
Wrap it all round a battery https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2292

If it's the screen I think it is, the silkscreen is wrong! Try

RPI Display

3,3V(Pin1) VCC
Ground(Pin6) GND
MOSI(12,Pin19) SDA
n/a SCK
CE0(10,Pin24) CS
SCLK(14,Pin23) A0
25(Pin37) RESET

Then your modprobe line should get you something. The built in driver has the colours flipped, but we can fix that once you get an image

but I only have GND VCC SCL SDA RES DC BLK pins on display, what does it mean:
n/a SCK
CE0(10,Pin24) CS
SCLK(14,Pin23) A0
25(Pin37) RESET
also tested wiring with a tester, seems to be ok

Ah ok, not the screen I thought it was.

Can you probe the ribbon and the pins to prove the PCB is correct?

Actually, if you don't have a DC pin, you might need to force it to use 9 bit data

Try this

sudo modprobe fbtft_device name=flexfb speed=40000000 fps=60 gpios=reset:25

sudo modprobe flexfb buswidth=9 setaddrwin=0 width=240 height=240 init=-1,0x11,-2,120,-1,0x36,0x00,-1,0x3A,0x05,-1,0xB2,0x0C,0x0C,0x00,0x33,0x33,-1,0xB7,0x35,-1,0xBB,0x1A,-1,0xC0,0x2C,-1,0xC2,0x01,-1,0xC3,0x0B,-1,0xC4,0x20,-1,0xC6,0x0F,-1,0xD0,0xA4,0xA1,-1,0x21,-1,0xE0,0x00,0x19,0x1E,0x0A,0x09,0x15,0x3D,0x44,0x51,0x12,0x03,0x00,0x3F,0x3F,-1,0xE1,0x00,0x18,0x1E,0x0A,0x09,0x25,0x3F,0x43,0x52,0x33,0x03,0x00,0x3F,0x3F,-1,0x29,-1,0x37,0x01,0x18,-3
