A13-OLinuXino now have script for VGA(XGA) resolution 1024×768


For a long time we believed that max resolution A13 could achieve is 800×600 pixels 🙂 this is the fun to work with undocumented device.

Back few months ago when we worked on A13 VGA output the only image we had was Android image, we didn’t had access to Linux image and as we figured out today Android video output is hardcoded in the image to 800×600 pixels so we couldn’t squize anything at higher resolution.

Two days ago we received 10″ LCD with 1024 x 600 pixels resolution and today we managed to run Linux on it at full resolution, the attempt to run Android on it fail for the moment as it stays 800×600 whatever we do with the script timings, I guess someone have to dig in the SDK to see if we can make the resolution higher, but this may affect also the GPU, MALI buffers and may be not trivial task.

Anyway encouradged with the LCD resolution we decided to dig back a little bit in the VGA timing and you can see the result from the picture above.

We need some more time to precisely set the scriot.bin parameters as now there are some shadowing on the corners when you move your mouse pointer near the edges, but probably tomorrow we will upload on GitHub new script.bin which you can update on your SD-cards to may work with A13-OLinuXino at 1024×768 pixels resolution!

    Is it possible for A13 (or A10) to support 1280×1024 resolution VGA by any chance?
    I have to implement the graphic program with 17″ monitor and select a APU .

    Or any other APU?
