Any SOC dev board or cell phone based on Allwinner A13, A20 or similar

Added by pang zhang over 3 years ago

There are dev boards like olinuxino or cubieboard based on these chips. These chips have a Mali graphics card, which apparently work with the lima driver. There are also cell phones with these chips:

I'm awaiting the last Allwinner tablets before I can start the port (I'm also awful busy with other things, so I won't give any ETA).
We are going to start the effort to have Replicant working on Allwinner devices. My targets are:
  • Q88 (A13)
  • Ampe A76 (A13)
  • AM-975 unbranded tablet (A10)
  • ZaTab (A10)
  • ICOO ICOU Fatty 1 (A20)
  • Ainol Numy AW1 (A20)

Did any of these show any promise? I agree with you that we should be on a constant search for fully free devices. I've been looking at the cubieboard recently, which you mentioned in the slides of one of your talks I was looking at. Apparently the cubieboard 2 or the cubietruck is extremely similar to the EOMA68 and even runs the same ROMs as far as I know. I'm in email contact with someone at cubietech in Shenzen and they said they might be interested in donating a few devices to us if we think they might be useful to our project. Cubieboard 6 is about to drop with Android 5.1.1 http://www.cubietech.com/product-detail/cubieboard6/ but the Allwinner H8 isn't supported by linux-sunxi. https://linux-sunxi.org/Allwinner_SoC_Family#.22H.22-Series We want potential Allwinner devices to be supported by linux-sunxi, right? Some of the deeper tech stuff is a little bit over my head, but I'm trying to learn. In any case, have you looked at the cubietech boards that are currently available? http://www.cubietech.com/product-showcase/board/ They said they are no longer support the kernel in cubieboard 4 and 5. Does this one look good? http://www.cubietech.com/product-detail/cubieaio-a20-board/ I hope this message finds you well.
