    Inside this image you have everything you need to start developing with A20-OLinuXino
    For convenience for switching between the different resolutions and video interfaces we made special Linux shell script which does this automatically:

 

The default SD card setup is made with settings for HDMI 720p/60Hz. If you want to change some other LCD, VGA or HDMI resolution then you have to start change_display.sh script file in /root directory.

Type:

   # ./change_display.sh

and choose the resolution and the interface(LCD, HDMI or VGA).

The supported resolution are:

For LCD:

      • 1. 4.3(480×272)
      • 2. 7(800×480)
      • 3. 10(1024×600)

For HDMI:

      • 0. 480i
      • 1. 576i
      • 2. 480p
      • 3. 576p
      • 4. 720p50
      • 5. 720p60
      • 6. 1080i50
      • 7. 1080i60
      • 8. 1080p24
      • 9. 1080p50
      • 10. 1080p60

For VGA: (note that the VGA signals are routed to custom 6 pin connector and you need from adapter to standart VGA connector)

      • 0. 1680×1050
      • 1. 1440×900
      • 2. 1360×768
      • 3. 1280×1024
      • 4. 1024×768
      • 5. 800×600
      • 6. 640×480
      • 7. 1920×1080
      • 8. 1280×720

      Linux-Sunxi have not implemented MTD support and this is not possible yet

      NAND image can be generated using the Allwinner SDK pack tool but some people say this pack tool have GPL violation code, so we are going to wait

    Thanks For the work.
    I am using this board on daily basis as a thinclient to connect to my server using XDMCP. My display is 1920×1080. I feel the lack of 2D Acceleration and its bit sluggish. At lower resolution 1366×768 it is fine. I wonder is the best we can get from the G2D or Mali400MP2 ?

    There is 1680×1050 but not 1920×1200. Why is that?

    could you provide source tarball? or prepare kernel with more filesystems compiled as modules?

    Hi,

    could you kindly share the commit hash of the kernel you built? Just to know if it includes the commit which enables Mali on A20:
    https://github.com/linux-sunxi/linux-sunxi/commit/cba0a9bac475fe14c6a25c221cd499b1d5dfecf4

    Thank you.

    Hello&thanks

    I’d like to use 1-wire (w1-gpio, w1-therm) and ds18b20 with my A20, but it seems 1-wire modules are not enabled in the kernel. Is there any chance/plan to include them in a future release ? And how can I use ds18b20 with an A20 ?

    please any guide will help

    Thanks in advance
