Status

The current U-Boot release fully supports major functions (except NAND) on all the older Allwinner SoCs (A10/A10s/A13/A20/A23/A31/A31s) and has basic support for the more recent A33, A64, A80, A83T, H2+, H3, H5, and V3s(No MPI-DSI Lcd).

The next release will be v2019.07.

Exclamation.png Known problems:

  • Commit c32a6fd breaks MII detection (and thus U-Boot networking) for sunxi GMAC.

You might observe the PHY not initializing (e.g. no LED activity), and the command mii info likely will list useless information on all available PHY slots (0x00-0x1F). Commit fc8991c fixes it again, but unfortunately that means U-Boot release v2016.03 is affected.
