Hello Sirs,

I am researching also in this problem for CB2 and CT.
By now, points to or sys_config.fex.

I will update if I have any progress.



I've tried 3d navbar next launcher but still there
I've also tried the CT images with HDMI 1080p (1920x1080) but there is still a navbar
is there another way?



Here is the source code for @alex's image:

try this:


Hi @lex, I have a similar problem, but I need to get permission VGA 800x480 or at least 800x600. Did I correctly has been edited line:
init_swtichdisplay(0, DISP_OUTPUT_TYPE_VGA, DISP_VGA_H800_V600);

There is possible to get a resolution of 800x480?


yes, seems ok. Don't forget to change setting (script.bin) to VGA 800x600!

I used below img for my CT and it is working perfectly.

Could you tell us which kernel version this image is?

I would like to try it but only if I can use it as an upgrade to @lex image, without erasing all my data...

To do that open a terminal an run this command: uname -a
Otherwise you can attach the CT to your PC and see the version with PhoenixSuit, at the bottom of the main screen.


Change resolution on the fly:

1. get SuperSU/Superuser
2. get NOMone Resolution Changer
3. test different resolutions to fit your screen
4. experiment with dpi for size of symbols/ui


Yes, that worked for me.
In my case is working with Nomone on 1360 x 1024 x 160 dpi, with output to HDMI 1080p
It looks good enough, full screen on a 23" display...

I'm using test image for HD resolution with below url.

I was forced to reflash my CT after I tried Cubieez booting from SD card and got the NAND erased, as I now realized it happens in all Rev.B A20 boards... (

I tested this Android image and although it really works on 1080p, unfortunatelly it doesn't allow to overclock CT :-[
It has a limit of 952 MHz, while I used to push it until 1100 / 1200...

Also despite kernel shows 3.4.39+ it doesn't load the drivers I compiled for 3.4.39, so I went back to my previous image, just have to install everything again...  :'(


Hey, help me, I change the parameter init_swtichdisplay (0, DISP_OUTPUT_TYPE_HDMI, DISP_TV_MOD_720P_60HZ); on init_swtichdisplay (0, DISP_OUTPUT_TYPE_HDMI, DISP_TV_MOD_480I); 480I but get only at boot time, and when android boot still 720P_60HZ

Android remembers the last connection type. But if you connect hdmi, settings reset to hdmi. How to use 2 connections?
