@Jamesbond

In your experience, for a desktop OS as Fatdog which board is better: Cubieboard or ODROID.
I'm thinking of buying one of the new models: Cubieboard 3 (Cubietruck) or ODROID-U3 and your experience as developer is very valuable and meaningful for me.


Odroid-U3 has a quad-core (4-core), Cortex-A9 processor running at 1.7GHz with 2GB of RAM. Cubietruck has a dual-core (2-core) Cortex A7 processor running at 1GHz with 1GB RAM (some models apparently comes with 2GB RAM too). Performance-wise, Odroid will annihilate Cubietruck completely.

But Cubietruck has things that Odroid doesn't have:
a) VGA output
b) SATA connector
c) built-in wireless and bluetooth (on Odroid you need to buy extra)
d) extension pins (on Odroid you need to buy an "USB I/O board")

So whichever one is better depends on what you plan to do with it.

Apparently I still need a little help. I am not sure of two things.
1.) Which mk802 I have. Mine has a barcode on the back that says "MK802A-1" Which kernel should I download for that?
2.) I following the installation instructions to the letter, using the two partition option. /dev/sdb1 is FAT32 500MB /dev/sdb2 is EXT4 7.12GB
no errors were generated. I used the mele kernel rather than the mk802ii.
When I put the micro SD into the MK802A-1 and powered up it booted straight to Android (which performs miserably on this device). Should I try the kernel for the MK802ii and if, so do I need to redo the uboot step or just swap the files out? Sorry it took me so long to get back to this project, I don't have consistent access to the device as my wife is generally using it to stream music or video when I have time to work on this.

people people people, we need to band together and work on how to avoided being conned out of our electrical toys by our loved ones..
I have gotten two newer kindle e readers and both ended up being redirected to loved ones. I still have my orginal kindle..
A notebook computer same deal.. Shocked

But to answer the question above does that model allow booting from non Android. By your discription It was not even attempted to boot linux. Skipped all together. when your loader is attempted the unit will recycle boot until card is removed. IE if you got it wrong it still would not boot into android.

There seem to be at least three different mk802 models:

mk802
mk802-1gb
mk802_A10s

Can you tell us if your model has 512mb or 1gb memory?
Can you take a look inside and check if your mk802 has a A10 or a A10s cpu?
With this i can build you specific script.bin and uboot for your device

Have you tryed booting alpha 3 iso?

@01micko
So that explains the halt in progress on the MTP project. Have fun with that new toy.
--Edit--
Scratch that, progress didn't halt, but only slowed momentarily. I don't know how you get it all done. Do you have time for anything else?

Hehehe, what kind of news are you expecting? Smile I'm currently building FatdogArm beta with gcc 4.8.1 and glibc-2.18 - if that's what you want to hear. It will take a while though as it is a full rebuilt. (No, I don't just change glibc). Meanwhile, alpha4 is very usable. In fact I'm building the beta using alpha4 Smile


Hi!!
Does your kernel for the Allwinner A10 support f2fs ??
Thank you!

Here is the link to what I bought on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008H3B736/ref=oh_details_o09_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It does have a label on the back of the device that says "MK802A-1" I don't think I can get it open without breaking it. I definitely has the 1GB of RAM listed in the specs at Amazon.
Sorry it took so long for me to get back to this.
