I installed the Rikomagic A10 Media PC Recovery Software with livesuit and it is working good.
Without changing the script.bin:
It boots directly in the cvbs port;
Usb only one port works (probably it will work too after change the script.bin)
I can't use adb. The Usb debugging option is activated but when I connect to pc nothing is detected
I have also tested the A10 Rikomagic Android image:
Image filename was: RSH-A10-C2.img, checksum:
Filesize: 292,855,600 bytes
Linux Kernel: 3.0.8, built 21st June 2012.
First of all, you need to realise that this image uses the 3.0.8 Linux kernel, whereas the Cubieboard Allwinner TV 2.2 image uses the 3.0.52 Linux kernel. The 3.0.8 kernel will cause problems for users who want their HDTV decoder hardware to run.
I replaced the script.bin in this image with the script.bin from the Allwinner TV 2.2 image, with success.
Additionally, I can confirm that:
HDMI video out works OK. 720p and 1080p both work fine. Screen trimming adjustment works fine. DVI-D doesn't appear to work at all. TV required.
-tested OK on TV.
SATA is listed as available,
SPDIF, CODEC (headphone), and HDMI audio outputs are listed as available.
- HDMI tested fine. Didn't test the others.
CPU does not clock above 912MHz.
- This is a bad thing. It should be allowed up to atleast 1.08GHz. Your CPU's performance is impaired.
Hardware (CedarX Mali) video decoding works perfectly up to 1080p.
- tested fine. Appears very smooth, no stuttering evident. Tested MX Player and TvdVideo.
Only one USB port works, but replacing the script.bin from the Allwinner TV 2.2 image resolves this, and both USB ports work.
- tested OK after script.bin replacement.
Ethernet works, out of the box.
- tested OK. Tested OK after script.bin replacement, too.
Uinput framework is installed; you can run a VNC server that supports virtual input devices.
- tested OK with droid VNC server.
USB Debugging does not work.
-Failed. Someone else should further test this, though.
USB storage devices work OK. Allowance is made for /mnt/usbhost0 to 4, along with sata.
-tested OK. Without script.bin, only ubshost1 is mapped to a device, irrespective of any additional devices. After replacing script.bin, you get usbhost1, and usbhost2 both working and mapped to your two separate USB storage devices.
Performance seems good. I set the CPU stuck at 912MHz with performance profile set;
Native Benchmark: 1257 ms.
Long Benchmark: 735 ms, average.
Short Benchmark: 275 ms, average.
The Youtube app is nothing to get all excited about, it only plays in standard definition, and does not use any hardware acceleration.
It does, however, work very well, and has a quick UI response.
- XBMC does not run on this Android image. XBMC installs, but then crashes on load; it could be out of space (when creating the user data).
- Some other application installations appear to fail due to limited storage space. It appears that the default application installation partition is a bit undersized. (Moving to SD card doesn't really solve much.)
Solely for the issues described with XBMC (storage issues?) I do NOT recommend this image to cubieboard enthusiasts.
