Cubieboard v3 Hardware (Cubietruck) / Re: Replace AP6212 by AP6236 on cubietruck

Wow, you are adventurous!  Or very skilled.

Hopefully someone here can help, but over on the Fedora ARM where they have lots of experience with ARM SOC with special wifi and BT that require custom kernels (this problem seems to be endemic in the arm community), they just go with a USB device.  And this is what I have done the few times I have needed this.
Cubieboard v3 Hardware (Cubietruck) / Replace AP6212 by AP6236 on cubietruck
« Last post by PaddleStroke on June 20, 2019, 03:06:59 am »
Hi there,
I am using a cubietruck for a project on which I need wifi and BT.

The use of bt 4.2 instead 4.0 would be great for my project.

So I have been looking at the AP6212 alternatives and found one module the AP6236 which is pin to pin compatible and support bt 4.2!

So my plan is to replace the AP6212 with the AP6236 module with hot air solder station.

Question is, will it work out of the boxe on the software end? Or does it need to modify some drivers?

Cubieboard v3 OS (Cubietruck) / Updated my CentOS instructions
« Last post by rgmhtt on June 19, 2019, 03:51:20 pm »
My Howto guides for CentOS on Cubieboards have been updated! You can get to them via:

I recently lost a drive and had to quickly rebuild a system (fortunately not a critical use one).  It went reasonably well using my own instructions, but just was challenging to do all the select and copy work.  So I learned some CSS and Javascript and made all the text areas directly selectable/copyable.

Note the mailserver is still a work in progress.  Maybe after this distraction I will get back to it.

I found this manual: but it seems outdated. "NAND detection/initialization patchset" cannot be applied to, say, HEAD.
So I tried to fix dts and dtsi files and select  'Support for NAND on Allwinner SoCs' option in menuconfig, then got this:

Code: [Select]

I have a problem with that too, thanks for the advice. I will try it

I have a Cubie tech 2012-09-09 board and cant find any information on it, I am trying to get some info on it.
The board doesn't have a video outlet nor does it have Line in, Headphones, SATA connections. The board has provision for them but their not present.
Raspberry Pi / Re: Install OwnCloud on Raspberry Pi (or any other ARM)

Personally I think Owncloud and Nextcloud are crap, having hassled with both of those.
I'd recommend looking at something simpler, maybe filerun

If you need syncing, then syncthing is great -

If you must try, why not go the docker route?
You'd need to check if there is a docker arm version of nextcloud, or roll your own though.

Hi....I tried apt-get install owncloud from the current Raspbian repository but I quickly got bogged down in a bunch of configuration and poor documentation. I'd still like to try it, but I think I'll download a pre-configured SD card image.
Ok, some news on this!
1. cubie is running flawless till now.

2. cubie was up again for a short time today. I loged in via ssh and checked the boot parameters. It seems booting from nand is set as default.
How do i change this back to SD card boot when i can not log in?
Before i could change something, the cubie kicked me out off the ssh connection again...
Is there a way to flash back to factory settings?
