I want! That script.bin editing in 5 seconds sounds absolutely beautiful  ;D
Thank you for the links to those schematics, the ones I was looking at were not from the Google page, but from here http://dl.cubieboard.org/hardware/cubieboard_schematic_2012-08-08.pdf and here http://ubuntuone.com/52QFl1FUCrAJ26KopIkR1w. They look like garbage compared to the clear layout of the ones you have a link to. I will try to see if I can get a working solution, and update on what I used to get the best result. Thank you so much for your help so far, I will comment back if I have any further questions.
Gaming / Gaming and my reccomended setup for it

If you would like to game on your Cubie, I first and foremost suggest that you DO have the android os installed on the NAND flash, and a linux distro installed on the micro SD card so that you can perform easy dual booting just from having the card in or out.

From there, you can run certain retro games from the linux boot, rather simple and straight forward.

On the android boot is where most of the gaming took place for me, as we all know of the thousands of games on Google Play. The only setback is that using the mouse can be troublesome for playing games that require more than one finger to play. With some research and maybe a few dollars spent on buying an app that will let you plug in some sort of gaming controller though, this does have a potential workaround, though I cannot personally verify that it will work as I never did bother trying to hook up an xbox or playstation controller.

There are more benefits to running such a dual boot on the cubie, as having a desktop and mobile OS can be very practical for everyday use, and expand the possibilities of what you can do with your board.

I hope that this helps a few of you out there, and good luck to you all!
Tips, Tricks and Guides / Re: script to switch display

Where would that video be found? I would like to see it.
I have bought the cubieboard baseboard for 30$ from this website https://store.iotllc.com/product.php?productid=3&cat=0&featured=Y. It routs all of the pins so that you can plug in the lvds display so long as you have the right cables to do so, which are easy to obtain, they can usually ship them with the screen. It also brings the pins out to have larger spacing, so that if you would still like to learn how to plug a screen in manually, it makes it much easier.

Hope this helps!
Thank you for the quick reply! Both options 1 and 2 seem a little out of my league in terms of speed controlling the fan, though I will surely use them for future reference when i have the skill level required to. In regards to using the 5v port, I have a HDD mounted so that is in use already, and it is not removable as i have my root filesystem mounted on it. The schematics I downloaded from the official Cubieboard website might as well be written in Chinese for all the good they do me. So, with that said, if you could point me in the direction of where I would just simply plug in the fans wires to make it spin, that would be sufficient for now. I was under the impression that the four pins sticking up from the middle of the board near the cpu could be routed to a usb type connection, could I potentially use those to solve my problem?
Very simple question form a noob who doesn't know one i/o pin from the next. I am looking to plug in a fan. Where would I plug the wires in so that it will turn on? All I need to know is the number associated with the two pins I would be using, but having the numbers of all the pins that would do the job would be helpful. Also, can I send more or less power to these pins so i can control the airflow? I am trying to make spin speed based on the CPUs frequency in order to always keep the device at a set temperature, but also save as much power as possible by spinning slower when intense cooling is not needed.

Edit: Before anyone asks, or says "You don't need a cooling fan!" Yes I am overclocked, and have need for such cooling as I do not like the heat that the CPU puts off when running at 1.4 G

Just one more thing though, I did a reboot to see if the settings would stick, but its looking like I will have to do that command on startup every single time in order to always have the overclock. Is there a way to fix this so that it boots overclocked? Or at the least is there a way to set a terminal command to run at startup?

Thank you for the reply, I have it working now! Makes me feel stupid, when all that there was to do was simply drop the "stable" from the end of the command.

I have been looking through this website and have been unable to find detailed instructions on how to overclock the cubieboard2. Can someone please help me? My script.bin file has been modified according to the first comment on this post, http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php/topic,626.msg3307.html#msg3307, but I have no idea how to perform the "This lets me do cpufreq-set -g ondemand -u 1.4G  stable" action. See here -

Cubieboard v2 Hardware (A20 Based) / Multiple Monitors
December 28, 2013, 09:34:31 pm
Hello all, I have recently purchased the cubieboard baseboard from IOTech. I have configured the script.bin file with the instructions on the IOTech website to support either the added VGA output, or default HDMI. I was wondering, is there a way to set these two outputs to display at the same time? I would love to have a dual monitor setup. No mirroring, of course.
