Sunxi support

Current status

The H5 SoC support has matured since its introduction in kernel 4.12. Most of the board functionality for boards such as FriendlyARM NanoPi NEO Plus2, including 3D graphics, hardware accelerated video and crypto, and DVFS are available with current mainline kernels. Only a very few minor features are still being worked on. For a more comprehensive list of supported features, see the status matrix for mainline kernels.

See the Manual build section for more details.


Manual build

You can build things for yourself by following our Manual build howto and by choosing from the configurations available below.


Mainline U-Boot

Use the nanopi_neo_plus2_defconfig (supported since v2018.01) build target.

Linux Kernel
