Not supported boards

If your board isn't supported, you can anyway install Fedora if it is supported by u-boot and you have the corresponding device tree file.

  1. Copy Fedora image on your SD card with this instructions.
  2. Compile u-boot following this instructions.
  3. Install u-boot on your SD card:
     sudo dd if=/Some Path/uboot/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/YOURSDCARD bs=1024 seek=8 conv=fsync,notrunc 
  4. Copy dtb to your SD card boot partition in each kernel dtb folder, for example with 4.0.4-301:
     sudo cp /Some Path/uboot/arch/arm/dts/YOUR_DTB_FILE.dtb /YOUR_SDCARD_BOOT_PARTITION/dtb-4.0.4-301.fc22.armv7hl/ 

You will have to copy your dtb file in the new kernel folder after each kernel update, unless if somebody have a better solution?

Caveats

Don't try to install the Workstation or the kde image on Allwinner devices due to the poor graphical performance it won't work.
