Bootable OS images

GNU/Linux

When the image you download is made for a different type of device (eg. Cubieboard vs MK802) but using the same CPU (eg. A10) you should be able to use it after updating u-boot and script.bin from your particular hwpack.

Some images that use very little hardware like the headless server images might work without changes on many devices.

Arch

Berryboot

keep in mind berryboot is not a recommended boot image for A10 devices

Debian

Fedora

See the Fedora page for a list of available images.

Gentoo

Allwinner SoC support is part of the Gentoo ARM Project. Various native stage3 tarballs are available from here; you might also check out the experimental directories (arm and arm64) for "bleeding edge" builds.

Kali

Linaro

Mer

Tiny Core

Tizen

Ubuntu

Android

Android is typically installed to the internal nand flash using LiveSuit or PhoenixCard.

It is not easily possible to update the script.bin in LiveSuit images so you need an image for your particular device. Old android images would let the bootloader present on the nand set up memory controller so there is better chance of compatibility.

Cubieboard

BSD derivatives

FreeBSD

FreeBSD for Allwinner SoCs is work in progress (currently in its early stages). Check the FreeBSD/arm wiki page.

NetBSD

The NetBsd/evbarm port supports evaluation and prototyping boards based on the ARM architecture, including various Allwinner CPUs.

OpenBSD

OpenBSD/armv7 targets various ARMv7 based systems, including A1x/A20 SoCs. As of 04/2015, Cubieboard 1+2 and pcDuino are listed as supported hardware platforms.
