No, there is no update option.

Ikeeki just build an image by adding and configuring software. Then he does a copy of his sdcard and loads this image up to the downloadserver. It has not a full blown software release infrastructure like ubuntu.

When you write a disk image then you write blocks on lets say 512 KByte in a sequeantial way to the SDCard. When it is ready all preformats (e.g. fat, ext4 ...) are overwritten. The data in then blocks contain the file system. So you dont need to format the sdcard!

Most of the image use hdmi as default. They can not detect if vga is used and switch over to vga. So you will not see the screen output on vga.

Some images are available with preconfigurated vga output. You can change theoutput settings in the uEnv.txt file on the bootpartition.

The new aruntu uses only one partition for boot and rootfs. It is a ext4 filesystem. So you need linux or a ext4 driver for windows to edit that file. For example this free tool ExtFS from paragon.

You can not do anything wrong with Win32ImageWriter.

Check your download by setting the hook befpür "MDS Hash". that will display a long string of characters. Ikeeki does copy this hash value to the file name so you can compare by reading.

Anyhow: Try the new and better aruntu 1.001. It will fit to your 16GByte card...

Which Image did you donwload and how did you burnd ist to SDcard?

To Boot from SDCard read here and folow the link to sdcard booting

To burn a premeade SDCard image you have to dd the image to the device, not to a partition ! The Image contains the magic boot bytes and 1 or 2 partitions.

Moreover , my resolution (800*480) does not exist in the code :
If your resolution is not defined in the fex guide, it is not available by the display drivers.

can you check dmesg ? just enter dmesg to see the boot protokoll. If you are able to save dmesg befor shutdown than we can see which event causes the shutdown ?

Cubieboard v3 OS (Cubietruck) / Re: VGA and HDMI

You need to edit a file named script.bin. it has to be decompiledmto a text  file named script.fex.

There you have to find the disp_init sectionas descriped here

As you can see you can set
Code: [Select]
disp_mode=4 which set the output to clone.

Then you have to configure screennresolutions for VGA and HDMI in the following settings. May be you have to activate the framebuffer scaler mode to match the different resolutions of hdmi and vga.

There is a Lubuntu version from cubietech for Cubietruck that supports dualnscreen output.,2281.msg14495.html#msg14495

.... but be aware i didn't test it be my self!

Read jere about nand file systems and driver devellopment.

You already found them. Your linux does boot on cubieboard2 (cb2) as well as on Cubietruck (ct). So you have two uEnv. For each board one.

Guess what is the right one for you....

If you boot from nand the you have a damaged android installed. It showsnthe red bar with 10% and could not go further because bootcode is damaged on nand. Flash it again with livesuite/phoenix.

Cubieboard v1 OS (A10 Based) / Re: Testing mali installation

Wrong question!
Mali is for 3D with openGLE, fbturbo for 2D.

You will need CedarX for video decoding
Read here

Here you can find a lot of results from the past month from ssvb.


It also works for A20!
