Current status





Manual build

  • For building u-boot, use the "Mele_A210" target.
  • The .fex file can be found in sunxi-boards as mele_a210.fex
  • extra Linux kernel patch [1] is needed

Everything else is the same as the manual build howto.

Tips, Tricks, Caveats

FEL mode

While you could use the UART to trigger FEL mode, there is little point in it as you'd probably first need to solder on a port to get USB OTG out of this device.

Adding a serial port

UART Connector

Device disassembly

There are four screws underneath the rubber feet at the bottom. Remove them, and your device will open.

Locating the UART

The Mele A210 has a 4 pin 2.0 pitch JST-PH connector for its UART. This is the same as some 90s analog audio cables which ran from a CDROM to the sound card. Wire things up according to our UART howto.
