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

If a device is special, then feel free to provide a terse description of what makes this device so special. But terse, no novels, no marketing blurb.


This section explains how to most easily identify your device. For a development board, explain the name(s) printed on the board. For an android device, find out the strings as reported under settings.

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

Manufacturer Marketing Name

The PCB has the following silkscreened on it:


In android, under Settings->About Tablet, you will find:

  • Model Number: DEVICE
  • Build Number: SOC_BOARD_DEVICE_*.*

Sunxi support

Current status

Give a brief overview of the current status of support under sunxi here.


Optional. Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE specific sunxi ROM images here. E.g. a livesuit image or some other linux image which uses linux-sunxi code. Do not put non-sunxi images here, they should live under See also. If no sunxi based images are available, this section can be removed.


Optional. Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE sunxi HW-pack specifics here. When empty, this section can be removed.

Device specific topic

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


Adding a serial port (voids warranty)


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

To open remove 4 tiny screws on the bezel and lift alu backplate. There are some plastic tabs keeping it in place, Plastic tool howto might come handy.

Locating the UART

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