Manual build

  • For building U-Boot, use the onda_v989_air_defconfig target, which will soon be added.
  • The .fex file soon could be found in sunxi-boards as onda_v989_air.fex

Everything else is the same as the manual build howto.

Mainline U-Boot

If there is mainline U-Boot support, add this section.

For building mainline U-Boot, use the MANUFACTURER_DEVICE target.

Don't forget to add
at the bottom of the page.

Mainline kernel

If there is mainline kernel support, add this section.

Use the FAMILY-CHIP-DEVICE.dtb device-tree file for the mainline kernel.

Tips, Tricks, Caveats

Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE specific tips, tricks, Caveats and nice to have changes here.

FEL mode

The something button triggers FEL mode.

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

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.


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