md5sum for the archive is e8b88137a76c2929d890cf3a65117af6

But I have noticed some bugs.
That Androuid environment will mount the 16MB bootloader partiton as extsd, while the last parition, that was considered as UDSIK, is missused as "sysrecovery". Even if I create mmcblk0p11 as VFAT it is not seen,
The whole problem relates not only to vold.fstab, but also to the init scripts and the Kernel as there are no interfaces for the indivdual partitions of mmcblk0 in the sysfs...

I haven't noticed all this until I tried to Download some App from PlayStore and it naged about a full SD card.
shame on me :-[

I will see if I can sort that mess out...

Thanks for the warning¡¡¡ Anyways you are close to the best android image, so maybe this is going to be the last effort, isn't it?

Rikomagic A10 Media PC Recovery Software is the best, even better than cubieboard's page.
You have to apply RAWX86 script, in this post.

RAWX86 the hwpack have a lot of files. It is necessary to copy all to cubieboard or is it enough the script.bin?

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;
Ethernet works;
Sata works;
Usb only one port works (probably it will work too after change the script.bin)

Problem:
I can't use adb. The Usb debugging option is activated but when I connect to pc nothing is detected

you have to use the posted script.bin so the other usb port will work, i've already tested, and it is quite useful. (i suppose you alredy know it, just in case)
regards

BTW what was extrange to me was the fact that I had to copy the script from a USB and all the process from ICS. I  always downloaded an empty file from the ICS browser.
Neither worked to copy it from linaro to the ICS partition. Permissions issues?, different filesystems?

Yes I know that, thanks.
the problem is that I usually use adb to change the script.bin, but now I can't use it

Try step by step rigourosly Raw86 tutorial I mention in my last post  if your problem is the writting of the script on ICS partition. even it is the correct script size, it seems that anything is copied¡¡¡ DUNNOWHYYYYY

I have also tested the A10 Rikomagic Android image:

Image filename was: RSH-A10-C2.img, checksum:
MD5: A7D4DC27012B53C2A691EFDD0EB026F7
SHA-1: A301446313ACF3BFEB14E2589B405EB84D81AAAA
Filesize: 292,855,600 bytes
Linux Kernel: 3.0.8, built 21st June 2012.
Android: 4.0.4

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,
      - untested.
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.

The other official images work at 1.08? Can anybody confirm it, please?

diogoc,  wich image do you recomend, taking performance in mind?
Thanks.
EDIT: I,ve tried antutu 3.3 (last) with Rikomagic A10 Media PC Recovery Software, and it says I've 60-1008 Mhz . Do I miss something?
