Sunxi support

Current status

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.




Manual build

  • 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.
