Tizen-sunxi is an open-source project for porting Tizen to devices with Allwinner A-Series processors. Sunxi represents the family of ARM SoC (System on Chip) designed for embedded systems, and made by Allwinner Tech. in Zhuhai (Guangdong, China).

Since it's not (yet) supported by Tizen project let's use this page as entry point


Tizen-sunxi images and instructions are available at GitHub and Google Drive.


This profile is a good candidate to dig into tizen since it can be easly adapted to any hardware...

You can rebuild stable kernel for source and then rebase or patch over it :

Then use armv7l images from project and install Kernel on boot part and bootloaders

See this How To for more :

Or use preinstalled image for A20-OLinuxIno-Micro :
