Sunxi support

Current status

Mainline support is WIP.

Manual build

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

U-Boot

Mainline U-Boot

Still being done. To try out the working-in-progress code, retrieve the code at [1] and use the sipeed_maixsense_defconfig build target.

Linux Kernel

Mainline kernel

Still being done. To try out the working-in-progress code, retrieve the code at [2] and use the sun50i-r329-maixsense.dtb device-tree binary.

Tips, Tricks, Caveats

FEL mode

By default no SPI Flash is soldered, that means just removing SD card makes the SoC to enter FEL.

Adding a serial port

Just plug a cable connected to your PC to the port at the down side (next to the 4-pin connector, which provides another UART, not the debug one). An onboard CH340 USB-UART bridge is available for accessing the debug UART.
