Title: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: RAWX86 on May 06, 2013, 12:19:06 pm
Introduction:

There are quite some devices, using basically the same chipset (A10 / sun4i) as the Cubieboard does.
This introduces the option to use Android ROM, made for those devices on our Cubieboards.

This may add functionalitys the official supported Android versions don't provide.
Some of these ROM even appear to have much better hardware optimisation.

The intention of this thread is to create a database of Android ROM that have been tested on the Cubieboard, including some background information.

So if you can provide any information here, feel free to do so.

I recommend to use script.bin configuration and bootloader matching Cubieboard.
(http://dl.linux-sunxi.org/users/amery/sunxi-3.0/latest/cubieboard_hwpack.tar.xz)
Otherwise you may encounter problems like missing suppot for devices like Ethernet, USB, etc

Title: Re: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: RAWX86 on May 07, 2013, 10:50:45 am
By now I have 4.1.1 working very well here.

The one and only issue, I can't seam to manage is root access.

Since I am running Android in SD card environment, I have full access to all filesystem.

I have been downloading:

http://androidsu.com/superuser/

...and copied the su binary to /system/bin

But it does not work - when typing su in Android Terminal Emulator, it says "permission denied"  :(

Anyone please?

//edit:

I forgot to set correct permissions:  ::)

chown root:root /mount_point/bin/su
chmod 6755 /mount_point/bin/su

...add Superuser.apk to your system partition and your are done...

And about sata port, it works?
I can't say. I don't have a spare device to test, sry. I have not even made a notch for the sata port at my cubieboards case.  ;)
If you will try it please let us know.

I tried that image too but it hangs on boot at first.
On second boot it didn't even get to the android logo. Just black screen.
Title: Re: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: RAWX86 on May 11, 2013, 09:41:16 am
Damn. I am sorry for that.  :(
I used to build a number of Images with minor changes and flashed the board several times using PhoenixCard.
I am not quite sure what the problem when flashing the final image only may be...

I tried to rebuild the LiveSuite Image using a different environment. The link has been updated.
But be aware that this one has not been tested yet.

Alternatively you can try to follow the steps for Android SD card at:
http://linux-sunxi.org/Boot_Android_from_SdCard
The boot, system and recovery images definitely have correct checksums, I used to extract the new output.img using awutils and checked that back.

Those of you who prefer having audio routed through HDMI over headphone jack, may want to adapt one of the other firmware i.e. the one for LY-F1 tablet pc anyway.

Rikomagic A10 Media PC Recovery Software runs so well that is my default image right now. Maybe a bad download? Or maybe I'm so noob that i did not know that errors in ttl console do not mean a bad OS function...
I think I flashed it from ubuntu 12.04, using phoenix card, amd laptop used.

I'm going to upload an image of the Jelly Bean Firmware, shown in the video, that just has to be written to a >= 4GB microSD card using dd or similiar.  :)

Maybe this will make it easier / save some of your time & hopefully it'll cause less trouble than flashing the NAND does.

But it will take some time, my upload speed is like ~80KB/s  ::)

I would download it almost inmediately.
My download speed is 220 KB and upload is 45 KB. But I,m still thinking of uploading my ubuntu linaro berryboot img with cpufreq fixed, Jdownloader and VNC installed and working +tutorial on VNCviewer... hours of tough work and testing XDXDXD.
But I do not think anybody is really interested, as I can see the level of knowledge people have here... XDXDXD

BTW; after a couple of weeks testing and so on... I think it is impossible that the cubie will reproduce 1080p decently, let alone the hobbit 30GB file XDXD, but it is still a good piece of engieering, that can brush up your linux capabilities... and patience..

I hope it will be ok to post the dl link here:

md5: a74fec4907e2109c97b20e9e878094f4

All you (Cubie 1GB) need to do is to write it to a >= 4GB microSD card using
dd if=cubie-jb-mmc.img of=/dev/sdx bs=1M
or similiar utility of your choice.
The unpacked image is about 2788MB so you may want to use i.e. gparted to extend sdx4 (extended) & sdx10 to the maximum avaible size on your memory card.

Well of course Cubieboard has it's limitations.
I bought like they say "just for fun" as I thought it would be cool unit for trying Linux and Android related stuff for the purpose of self education.
My alternative would have been the more expensive ODROID U2 or X2 platform that have much more capabilities, but I am happy with the Cubieboard.  :)

You may get some Android PC-Stick with better hardware for the same price as a Cubieboard, but they lack interfaces like RJ45, TS, second USB etc. what does not appeal my needs.

I tried XBMC on Linux, there was some stuttering and blur when playing 1080p Video...
But I can life with that.
Title: Re: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: ikeeki on May 15, 2013, 09:35:40 am
About the 1080p observation: I'm happy too with the cubie, the thing is that people who read the FAQs, may (or want to) believe that you can play anything at 1080p,  if you add in the faqs, a sentence like for example "menus at 1080p, but HD playing at 720p" would be more appropiate, just for save time to users, IMHO.

Thanks for the uploads¡¡¡¡

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...

RAWX86 the hwpack have a lot of files. It is necessary to copy all to cubieboard or is it enough the script.bin?
Title: Re: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: diogoc on May 27, 2013, 04:57:18 pm
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
Title: Re: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: ikeeki on May 27, 2013, 05:26:37 pm
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?
Title: Re: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: diogoc on May 27, 2013, 05:36:45 pm
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
Title: Re: database of working Android alien-ROM
Post by: ikeeki on May 27, 2013, 05:43:38 pm
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.

Solely for the issues described with XBMC (storage issues?) I do NOT recommend this image to cubieboard enthusiasts.

I have it working with:
XBMC;
Mx player with hw acceleration;
Samba server;
Bittorrent;
Ir remote control remapped;
CVBS;
VGA;
Hardware 7 front buttons;
Sata 1 TB hard disk;

To do: State leds, define pal as default tv system, get usb port 2 working, design and build the baseboard pcb for the whole system, put it inside a case.

yes with GV-17 Mini PC the second usb does not work even with the modified script.bin.
well it works but not have the power turned on. In this rom the usb2 is configured for a usb wlan device, so it turns the power off when there are not connected a wlan device.

I update my last post with my latest tests.

For now my choice is the GV-17 Mini PC 20130123 rom.
I have it working with:
XBMC;
Mx player with hw acceleration;
Samba server;
Bittorrent;
Ir remote control remapped;
CVBS;
VGA;
Hardware 7 front buttons;
Sata 1 TB hard disk;

To do: State leds, define pal as default tv system, get usb port 2 working, design and build the baseboard pcb for the whole system, put it inside a case.

How to remap de ir remote control?, have support for bluetooth? if not, have you tried a rom that works fine and have bluetooth?, i tried a lot of roms, around 20, and can't find one that support 1080p display and bluetooth

Hello to cubieforums community.


Can anyone suggest me android image with 100% working youtube application and HDMI 1080 resolution? Official Android TV Box Allwinner release2.2 image is crushing at the YouTube application launch and shows streaming video via browser  in the sideshow mode.  :-[

Regards.

I can not find a distribution that plays videos and has good support with bluetooth, also seems very odd that no one look the same as I, use cubie to watch movies (full hd, etc.) and occasionally play with a gamepad connected bluetooth ...

I think it's time to let her kept in the drawer of disasters xD

Has anybody tried to overclocking it?

Yes, it overcloks ok.
But I have some problems... my sdcard partition is now only ~1GB!!
(with the 2.2 rom was ~2.6GB)
It is the same with you?
Anyone knows how to correct this?
And, anyone knows of a good Android 4.2 rom??
Thanks,
J.
