- For building u-boot, use the "Mele_M5" target.
- The .fex file can be found in sunxi-boards as mele_m5.fex
Everything else is the same as the manual build howto.
Tips, Tricks, Caveats
The Mele A1000 can be put into FEL mode by shorting jumper 11K1. This has not been verified to work on the M5.
Adding a serial port
Trivially unscrew 4 screws.
Locating the UART
The Mele has a 4 pin 2.0 pitch JST-PH connector available for its UART0 port. This is the same as some 90s analog audio cables which ran from a CDROM to the sound card. More information is available at our UART howto.
Also known as
There are approximately 30 GPIO pins available on the top side
and at least 4 GPIO pins accessible on the bottom face of the board.
To access to all of them you need to disable some features of the motherboard in the script.bin file. For example to access the pins used for flash memory that is present on the motherboard you must before desolder the flash memory and change the file script.bin properly.
The following file File: File:Script.fex.30gpios.pdf offers access to at least 31 GPIO pins.
