In android, under Settings->About Tablet, you will find:
- Model Number: A70H
- Build Number: polaris_a70H-eng 4.2.2 JDQ39 20131228 test-keys
This image matches the android image used on the Ippo Q8H v2, which has a different case design.
Like all things A23, this hardware is not supported. It is however a prime target for development. For more information, check the Allwinner A23 SoC page.
- For building u-boot, use the "MANUFACTURER_DEVICE" target.
- The .fex file can be found in sunxi-boards as MANUFACTURER_DEVICE.fex
Everything else is the same as the manual build howto.
Tips, Tricks, Caveats
The something button triggers FEL mode.
Adding a serial port (voids warranty)
Gently push the back cover outwards from the screen with your plastic tool. You should soon feel the clips pop. When closing back up, replace the connector side first.
Locating the UART
Verify the information below according to our UART howto.
There are 2 pads right next to the SoC. The one closest to the SoC is RX/TX, the other is RX/TX. Attach some wires according to our UART howto.
