This page needs to be properly filled according to the New Device Howto and the New Device Page guide.

The Genesis GT-7220s is a cheap Chinese A10 tablet that used to be sold in Brazil circa 2012. I can't find more information about it in the Internet because most of its community was found in the Genesis Series forums, which have been since taken down.

Identification

On the back of the device, the following is printed:

Skyworth
GT-7220S

The PCB has the following silkscreened on it:

A702_MB_V1.6
2012.06.19

My sample of the device had a custom ROM spoofing it as a Samsung tablet before I started researching it, so I can't provide correct Android identification strings.

Sunxi support

Current status

This device is not currently supported by the project. I am working on porting both mainline U-Boot and Linux to it.

Manual build

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

Please note that, since this device is in the process of being supported, the patches containing the settings below probably won't be upstreamed yet.

U-Boot

Sunxi/Legacy U-Boot

n/a

Mainline U-Boot

Use the Genesis_GT7220s build target.

Linux Kernel

Sunxi/Legacy Kernel

Use the genesis_gt7220.fex file.

Mainline kernel

Use the sun4i-a10-genesis-gt7220s.dtb device-tree binary.

Device specific topic

If there are no further device specific topics to add, remove these sections.

...

Adding a serial port (voids warranty)

DEVICE UART pads

This section explains how to attach a serial port to the device. Make sure it refers to our UART howto. For a development board, you can just mention how to find the header with the pins and include a picture, and you can remove the warranty voiding warning.

Device disassembly

If necessary, provide a short description of how to open the device. Perhaps explain how the pins can be most easily popped. If pins do need to be popped, mention the Plastic tool howto.

Locating the UART

Describe how to find the RX,TX,GND signals here, and mention the UART howto.

Pictures

Take some pictures of your device, upload them, and add them here. DO NOT UPLOAD PICTURES WHICH YOU PLUCKED OFF THE INTERNET.
