Purchased pcDunio8 UNO with a downloadable image in ubuntu linux from Linaro and an android image. Found at http://www.linksprite.com/pcduino8-uno/

Disliked the build as I believe it should support 1080p graphics. I have read on their forums where they were asked to supply uBoot and editable fex files but they refused saying they were proprietary. I have every confidence based on the files they have used for the build that all the files are in the public domain. I hope to rebuild a better more usable and configurable image for my board. Hope it will help others. I am an extreme beginner. Drake

Please consider relying on this stuff here: http://forum.linksprite.com/index.php?/user/4805-tkaiser/ -- unless the Linksprite folks release their version of Allwinner's BSP it's not worth considering to buy pcDunio8 Uno. Tkaiser (talk) 00:31, 21 January 2016 (CET)

I got two pcDuino8 UNOs in an auction for 23 dollars. So I want to give it a try while I wait for any development. I did find:

https://github.com/allwinner-zh/bootloader/tree/master/basic_loader/bsp

This link lists all but the 8H. According to Wikipedia the 8H is categorized with the A83T with a different video encoding support. Both the A83T support H.265 but the H8 has VP9 @ 30 fps instead of "HVEC MP/L5.2". I am too inexperienced to know if this will help but I am still in the information collection stage. The video processing is said in the forum to be supported by PowerVR SDK and elsewhere, I don't remember now, is said to comply with opensource video codecs, OpenGL and two other standards. In support of that notion a search of the git repository for "H8" returns samples of c code that is part of video driver code in the A83T repository. https://github.com/allwinner-zh/bootloader/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=allwinner+h8 It might be still worth a try. Drake. I was looking for an SDK for the H8 but found only the spec sheet for the A80T. http://dl.linux-sunxi.org/A83T/A83T_datasheet_Revision_1.1.pdf

Software Sources provided by Linksprite for pcDuino8 UNO

When I use the apt-get command the following link is included in the repositories:

http://120.26.48.219/pcduino/

The above link causes a minor error because pcDuino3 files are also kept there. Reading in a file for pcDunio8 called usr/bin/board-config.sh accessable by downloading http://120.26.48.219/pcduino/dists/pcduino/main/binary-armhf/pcduino-config_0.2_armhf and unpacking it twice. One reads that the board set up shell script is run only once and afterwards another boot method is used. Also that .sh file creates a file called /etc/board.conf. I will try to find that file soon.
