Hi,
     I'm Jacky ! I worked for Allwinner over the past three years ! Now I am a member of the ybmaker team to develop many useful and interesting open source projects.
     Today, I bring a 3.5" TFT(800 x 480 pixels) with capacitive touchscreen for your cubieboard1 or cubieboard 2 , so we never need a very big monitor again! cubieboard with this screen can run android and ubuntu now!
      If you want to learn more about it ,please click :https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-3-5-inch-tft-with-touchscreen-for-linux-computer/x/8327960

     
     
      we have used XSTroke for handwriting input !

     
      it can easly play 720p video by mplayer .

     
      Android 4.2 .     

     
      WOW ! I welded this board, but it's not beautiful ! we plan to ask for help from SMT manufactory in Shenzhen ,China.

     
     
      The TFT and the LCD interface of the cubieboard were  connected !


     
     
      This project is open source !
      The price is $30, do you think it's reasonably priced ?
      Do you want one ? or you have any suggestions , please reply me , thank you!

Hi there,
This is great!
Regarding price, only the market tells you what the right price is. If you are in the ball park with your competitors, you have to show why your product is better, and deliver more value to customers.

Other thing to pay attention is CB1 and CB2 are nearly dead, since CubieTech does not seem to stay with a board layout, and CB3 has a different layout and newly availabel A80, is again different.

It would be hard for someone to buy this product, if it is only available for these ancient boards!

Hi Jacky and the rest of the ybMaker team,

First of all, congratulations on CubieScreen, mine just arrived a couple of days ago and now that the weekend is upon us I'm trying to get it set up.

I'm using a fresh installation of 64bit Ubuntu 14.04 on an HP-1000 model laptop with 4GB RAM. Latest updates have been applied and the only non-default software I have installed is git (per step 1.1)

I have run into a couple of problems following the instructions on ybmaker.org specifically steps 2.3, 2.5, 2.7.1 and now 3.1

In 2.3 I was unable to decompress cubiescreen.tar.gz via the command line with the following error:
"gzip: stdin: not in gzip format"
I was able to extract the archive using "Archive Manager" however and continued following the instructions.

In step 2.5 I was forced to make an assumption and created "sunxi-boards/sys_config/a20/" within my working directory (I have a CubieBoard2 as "sunxi-boards" did not exist anywhere else.

In step 2.7.1 I was forced to use the gui tools to extract the ubuntu sdk as errors were reported when using tar via the command line.

Now in step 3.1 the instructions say to enter "./configure cubieboard2" and yet bash reports "./configure: No such file or directory"

I've decided to stop where I am as I'm predicting I'll also need to install make, gcc and a few other tools in order to successfully build this image. Can you advise (and update the instructions too) on what I have either done wrong or could do better?

Thank you in advance.
