<HeHoPMaJIeH> if file is included with system file include #include <sunxi-pwm.h> build fails :)
<hno> which branch are you building?
<rm> sunxi-v3.4.43-r2 tag
<hno> HeHoPMaJIeH, indeed. And I guess that bits in-tree builds but not when using a separate object directory.
<hno> gah.. this driver is messing with PIO directly, not using pinmux registration. This will fail.
<hno> rm & HeHoPMaJIeH should be fixed now.

<oliv3r> arokux: 'best' is hard to describe, a nice screen, a20 or a10, 1gb + memory should work decent
<oliv3r> 512mb works; but is a little tight imo
<arokux> oliv3r, best is 1gb, dual core (possibly quad core, but here the battery life comes into play), but the most important is the manufacturing quality

<oliv3r> arokux: quad core? that'll be A31, not sure if you want that :)
<arokux> oliv3r, that be for elderly ppl, they will happily use android while I will hack on Mele and Cubietruck :)
<oliv3r> yeah, but A31 is powerVR :)
gnufan has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
<arokux> oliv3r, well, world isn't perfect. trade-offs need to be made you know..
<arokux> oliv3r, so do you know a few decent manufacturers? :)
<TheViking> oliv3r: I asked around for a serial-to-usb cable a few days ago. You linked me to one on DX.
<TheViking> oliv3r: I ended up getting this since I live near frys and know an associate there:
<oliv3r> arokux: trade off would be to use an A20 instead of the A31 ;)
<oliv3r> TheViking: ahhh ok yeah
<arokux> ok, oliv3r :) any nice A20-based tablet out there? durable, light, with good battery life
<oliv3r> and has to be cheap?
<oliv3r> problem with chinese brand tablets is, you never know what's inside
<arokux> oliv3r, that is why I'm asking if ppl here happen to know good ones
<arokux> oliv3r, doesn't necessarily need to be cheap if it offers quality for its price
\\Mr_C\\ has quit []
<oliv3r> arokux: that's good, unfortunatly most tablet manufactures don't list the specs properly
<oliv3r> I know polaroid is selling cheap tablets, with some having A* i belive
<oliv3r> a20 tablets are little known to use :(
<oliv3r> but i want one too :)
<arokux> oliv3r, well google will find lots if you search for "A20 tablet"
<oliv3r> true
<oliv3r> well dealextreme has a few too :)_
<hno> There is very many A20 tablets on Aliexpress.
<oliv3r> yeah
<oliv3r> but which one is 'good' is the question :)
<Turl> oliv3r: A10 has no mbus
<Turl> (or it may have, but it's completely hardcoded)
<oliv3r> Turl: it's "hidden" but it surly has it :)
<oliv3r> Turl: u-boot sets it up as usual
<Turl> oliv3r: the register always reads 0
<oliv3r> Turl: but it was all 'magic' before my cleanup patch
<Turl> oliv3r: you can write garbage to it and nothing will happen
<oliv3r> hmm
<oliv3r> that's worrysome
<Turl> oliv3r: and the docs on A10 don't show any mbus clock
<Turl> only sun5i & sun7i
<oliv3r> but, and I don't understand hardware design, i can't imagine it working without one
<Turl> but hey, you can get an extra GB/s neon fill on your A20 ;)
<oliv3r> also i find it hard to belive, that while the memory controller is almost the same, sun4i didn't have the mbbus :)
<Turl> didn't they change it?
<Turl> and cripple sun5i that way?
<oliv3r> Turl: yeah a10 is dead to me!
<Turl> poor A10 :(
<Turl> mine is awesome and works daily :p

<oliv3r> Turl: but slow!
<Turl> oliv3r: if you want to compile stuff, maybe
<Turl> oliv3r: it works fine for all the other things :)
<oliv3r> Turl: my tablet is still a10
<oliv3r> but I have 2 a20 dev boards, so why bother with a10 too much ;)
<oliv3r> I want to use the A20 cb as HTPC
<oliv3r> so the extra mbus might prove usefull for that usecase
\\Mr_C\\ has joined #linux-sunxi
<oliv3r> Turl: anyway, see how it setups up the mbus normally?
<Turl> oliv3r: I saw that
<oliv3r> Turl: and that's origincal code; do you modify those registers from u-boot?
<Turl> oliv3r: it just writes to the void on sun4i :p ask ssvb
<oliv3r> i'm still backreading :)
<oliv3r> but that's original sun4i u-boot code
<Turl> hmm maybe it was sun5ified
<oliv3r> let me check sun4i boot0
<oliv3r> what they do
<Turl> oliv3r: you should get higher speeds on A20
<oliv3r> you want to change on sun6i FROM pll6 TO pll5?
<Turl> and you can try 600 too by using PLL6, but ssvb said it crashed under some gears load
<Turl> oliv3r: yes
<Turl> but without any of the M or N (both on 0)
<oliv3r> Turl: sounds like a sane and reasonable change request
<oliv3r> but
<oliv3r> we need to know WHY it was set to PLL6 x2
<oliv3r> they changed it quite late, so why did they do that?
<oliv3r> also i don't have a10 boot0 code
<oliv3r> lkcl_: ^
popolon has joined #linux-sunxi
<oliv3r> only a20 from AW, and a31 from other sources
wingrime has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
<Turl> oliv3r: meanwhile you can play with sth like on your boards :p
<Turl> needs fixing so it compiles but you get the idea :p
<oliv3r> why you using M x2?
<oliv3r> i tought you set all 0
<oliv3r> oh wait
<oliv3r> ifNdef
<Turl> yup
<oliv3r> we probably want to do M_X(0) for sun7i and M_X(2) for sun45i
<oliv3r> sounds a little more clear to me :)
<oliv3r> anyway, i'm ok with the change, but do we want to risk letting 'users' find out what breaks? :)
<oliv3r> i'd rather have it out in the whild an dhave people complain about stuff not working, cause if nobody complains its good
<oliv3r> i'll also pop an e-mail via the ML to benn and see what he has to say
<oliv3r> maybe we can find out the reason why it was set to the slower pll6
<Turl> oliv3r: if you can confirm it works ok for you and hno agrees, I'm ok with it
<Turl> oliv3r: if you read the backlog from some days ago, I posted sprunges with tinymembench results on various configs
<oliv3r> Turl: i will continue backreading, but i'll test it sometime soon (busy atm)
<oliv3r> Turl: can you bake a new cpio with tinymembench in it? :)
<Turl> mine already has doesn't it?
<Turl> the one I'm using at least, dunno if it's uploaded
<oliv3r> always has?
<Turl> not always, but nowadays it does :p
<Turl> oliv3r: I'll up a new copy

<hno> oliv3r, to comment I need to know the allowable MBUS frequency range.
<hno> which I don't..
<oliv3r> i think boot0 documents it
<oliv3r> hno: they talked about it over the weekend
<oliv3r> Turl: ^
<oliv3r> the problem is WHY was it changed by allwinner at all
<oliv3r> could be noob-coding
<oliv3r> or actually because of some bug
<oliv3r> so far, it seems to work nicely it is said
<hno> we have not boot0 for A10, or any mention of MBUS in available A10 documentation.
<hno> or sources..
<ssvb> hno: for sun5i the manual says something about 300mhz
<hno> PLLs quite often have issues in HW design. Was the reason why they changed PLL usage in A10 rev C code.
<Turl> it is divided pll5 or pll6
ganbold_ has joined #linux-sunxi
<ssvb> Turl: pll6 / 3
<ssvb> Turl: or more like pll6 * 2 / 3
<ssvb> and I don't quite understand the FIXME part of the comment
<oliv3r> hno: well for sun4i it looks like mbus is hardcoded and writing anything to those registers goes up in the void!
<hno> Manual says MBUS_clock = PLLx / 2^N / (M+1)
<oliv3r> Turl: are you sure you tested it right? I'm thinking a little bit about it, and you are basically reconfiguring pll5, right? and none of those changes influence the mbus?
<hno> Right.. It's PLL6*2 if PLL6 is used.
<hno> annoyingly the MBUS clocking is not part of the clock tree diagram.
<oliv3r> hno: for sun4i or sun7i?
<hno> sun7i. There is no mention of MBUS in any sun4i resources (manual or sources)
<oliv3r> hno: yeah turl suggested that it might be hardcoded
<oliv3r> while I don't understand hardware that much, i find it hard to imagine that sun4i doesn't have an mbus
<oliv3r> actually I did find 1 reference to the mbus in the a10 user manual
<oliv3r> it's in the display diagram
<hno> where?
<oliv3r> it shows how the display unit is connected to the mbus
<oliv3r> but nothing really other then that
jemk has joined #linux-sunxi
<oliv3r> don't know if i can easily link that section of the document :)
<hno> in which chapter?
<oliv3r> ok let me find it
gnufan has joined #linux-sunxi
<hno> I have only seen that diagram in A20 manual.
<oliv3r> hmm, now i'm in doubt
<vaxholm> speaking of manual... how come the a20 user manual lacks info on nfc and usb otg registers? deliberate or wip?
<oliv3r> maybe i saw in in A13 manual
<oliv3r> vaxholm: deliberate
<vaxholm> k
<oliv3r> chapter 27 of a13 (page 286)

<hno> oliv3r, but A10 manual is quite confising and incoimplete in this area so...
<hno> oddly a13 manual have better clock tree than a20.
JohnDoe_71Rus has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier.]
<oliv3r> hipboi: might know :) does a10 have an mbus like a13 and a20 (very very likly it does) and it it hardcoded on a10? (registers don't do anything)
<hipboi> oh, mbus
<hipboi> it sounds familiar...
<oliv3r> Memory bus I think :)
TheViking has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
<ssvb> hno, oliv3r, Turl, hipboi: should we ask allwinner people whether it is safe to increase mbus clock speed to 400mhz for a20?
<ssvb> just like 240mhz -> 300mhz increase, it improves memcpy/memset performance and also some memory performance limited mali benchmarks
<hipboi> i think we had better test it
vaxholm has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
<hipboi> i just did a grep in boot0 and no mbus found
<ssvb> hipboi: with 600mhz mbus the systems boots, but deadlocks later on heavy memory usage
<ssvb> hipboi: 400mhz and 480mhz mbus seems to work without visible problems (but I have a lucky a20 chip, which works fine with 480mhz memory clock)
<hipboi> what's the relationship with mbus clock and ddr clock
<hipboi> the one we set in script.fex
<oliv3r> HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
<oliv3r> :(
<oliv3r> oh let me ssh in
<ssvb> my guess is that MBUS is something like FSB from desktop PCs, if you have it clocked too low, then it becomes a bottleneck and the memory bandwidth is wasted
vaxholm has joined #linux-sunxi
<oliv3r> hipboi: so mbus should be in sync with ddr freq?
auxym has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
<oliv3r> hipboi: or should never be higher then ddr freq*
<oliv3r> kinda sounds sensible :p
<oliv3r> but ssvb knows more about this memory timing stuff then me
auxym has joined #linux-sunxi
<ssvb> oliv3r: they don't necessarily have to be in sync, and also I think that mbus is probably wider (maybe 64-bit)
<oliv3r> hipboi: void mctl_setup_dram_clock(__u32 clk)
<oliv3r> i think that's the function that setups pll5 for mbus
<oliv3r> ssvb: ok so is it a bad thing to run the mbus HIGHER then the ddr freq?
<oliv3r> ssvb: from my simple mind, I would think, if you write something to the ram, at a higher freq then what it's running at, havoc ensures :p
<ssvb> oliv3r: well, we have ddr memory, so it does 2 transfers per cycle
<ssvb> oliv3r: as for the mbus speed, with 240mhz we had ~1.6GB/s memset, with 300mhz mbus we got ~2GB/s memset, with 480mhz or 600mhz mbus Turl got ~3GB/s memset
<oliv3r> but you've reported instability with 600 MHz?
<oliv3r> i probably should try to understand how a 600 MHz mbus correlates to a 480 MHz DDR bus
<ssvb> oliv3r: yes, but there is little difference between 480mhz and 600mhz
<oliv3r> should not*
<ssvb> oliv3r: based on the memset performance numbers, the speed is 6.5 bytes per mbus cycle
<ssvb> oliv3r: which looks like 64-bit mbus width
<oliv3r> sounds probable
<ssvb> oliv3r: and ddr is "double data rate", so it's twice 32-bit per dramc cycle
<ssvb> oliv3r: the optimal configuration seems to be mbus clock matching the dramc clock
<ssvb> oliv3r: however we don't know if mbus is really stable at 480mhz
<oliv3r> would the mbus be unstable, or the ddr itself?
<ssvb> we need to test it :)
<oliv3r> i don't understand how a 600 MHz mbus, can write data on a 480 MHz running ddr bus
<oliv3r> i would expect not everything would make it in :)
<oliv3r> ssvb: now if the mbus would be 32 bit, i can see how you could run it x2 DDR
auxym has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
auxym has joined #linux-sunxi
<ssvb> oliv3r: because we don't know any fine details about the mbus from allwinner, I think treating it kind of like might be not too wrong
<hno> hipboi, not sure if there is a direct relation between MBUS and DDR clocks.
<oliv3r> ssvb: so while i still have to backread; does this improvement make 1080p @ 50Hz with 24/32 bpp possible?
<ssvb> oliv3r: screen shaking with 1080p is a major problem for a10, but it does not look like we can fix it with mbus there
<oliv3r> well Turl said you found that the mbus register is ignored on a10
<ssvb> yep
<oliv3r> so for a20, will it help ther?
Clement_ has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
<ssvb> you can write any garbage to the mbus register from u-boot, and a10 boots fine and shows exactly the same memory performance
<ssvb> I can run some tests with a20, trying different mbus and dram clock to see whether we get the same "screen shaking" effect at low mbus/dram clock
<oliv3r> ssvb: that would be interesting indeed
<oliv3r> (i can't atm, no hardware, and @ work)
n01 has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]

shineworld has joined #linux-sunxi
<vaxholm> ssvb, this screen shaking, is that believed to be related to mismatching clock speeds?
<vaxholm> (sorry for asking a lot of nosy questions, but i'm curious.)
<ssvb> vaxholm: more like framebuffer scanout gets starved and does not have enough memory bandwidth left to send pixels to hdmi
<vaxholm> ssvb: that's using external dram for framebuffer?
<ssvb> there is no dedicated video memory in allwinner devices, system memory is also used for the framebuffer and everything else
<hno> The MBUS looks like a data bus between DDR controller and a number of DMA controllers. The MBUS likely manages both internal and external transactions.
<vaxholm> ssvb: ... which poses a problem if the bus speed is too low and screen resolution is too high. i see, thanks.
<hno> vaxholm, yes that's always a problem at higher resolutions.
<hno> display, gpu, vpu, video mixer etc all start to compete about the bus bandwidth.
<vaxholm> nod. is there any better block diagram than the powerpointy think in the a20 user manual?
<vaxholm> s/think/thing/
<oliv3r> vaxholm: not really; well there's always 'the code'
<vaxholm> i think that could be useful for "point-n-tell" about different buses.
<vaxholm> i got a kernel booting yesterday. i'll add a tutorial to the wiki on how to get the two LEDs on the CB to blink in five different ways... from plain u-boot up to /sys/class/leds/
<vaxholm> then we'll see where i go. this seems like a fun channel. :)
<hno> vaxholm, there is some quite nice things that can be done with led triggers in Linux.
<vaxholm> yepp. maybe the last tutorial step is adding ledtrig support
<hno> only problem is that you soon run out of the two leds...
<vaxholm> of course. it's just a CBL on getting started. like FirstSteps with a goal.
<ssvb> oliv3r, Turl: and for the CPU, there is also AXI on the way to memory, its clock might be relevant (if MBUS stops being the bottleneck)
<vaxholm> err.. PBL
<oliv3r> ssvb: so lots of stuff to play with

<ssvb> Turl: "Radxa Rock should go for $89, and Radxa Rock Lite for $69" - these are exactly the prices of odroid-u2 and odroid-u :)
<Turl> ssvb: but dev samples are 50% off I think :)
<ZetaNeta> Any news on Logicom TAB750?
<Turl> ssvb: also, odroid shipping was highly expensive last I checked
<ssvb> right, and odroid-u has less connectors/peripherals

<Galland> hi
<brain_> Hello everyone
<brain_> I am not sure if this is the place to ask this but here goes, I am working on porting CM10 to my allwinner A10 Tablet, i have to use the stock prebuilt kernel 3.0.8 due to a custom factory touchscreen driver which I cannot rebuild... So far Touch, Wifi, interface, storage all working. I am battling audio output issues and have no idea were to look or if this is simply impossible.
jemk has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
<brain_> I have heard that i can only get CM9 with this kernel but am unable to find a full source tree to base off of, currently using Christiontroys tree tweaked a bit to work.
arokux2 has joined #linux-sunxi
<brain_> the stock kernel was from a 4.0.4 ROM so i'm starting to suspect this is not gonna work or might POSSIBLY work on CM9 if only I could find a full allwinner a10 tree to base off of.
<techn__> brain_: I think no one here uses 3.0.8 kernel
<techn__> everyone is currently focused on 3.4.x kernel
<techn__> and mainline
<brain_> I kinda figured that, I have no other options due to the touchscreen being custom from the factory. if I could get the FT5x_TS working i could move on but I ran out of idea down that path as well.
<techn__> ft5x should work with 3.4 kernel too
<deasy> stable 3.11.1 is realeased ;)
<deasy> -a
<deasy> what is the difference with mainline? mainline is the outdated now no?
<brain_> I am only able to load the OEM touchscreen into various 3.0 kernels. if their was a way to make the prebuilt OEM module load into a newer kernel i'm all ears lol.
<techn__> deasy: mainline .. not yet released latest kernel SCM head
<brain_> If I built my own ft5x module from source it does not respond at all. the output from the oem module seems to have been heavily tweaked compared to the mainline ft5x module.
<deasy> techn__, can you use complete words instead of short, as i'm not familiarised with it? thank you
jemk has joined #linux-sunxi
<deasy> what is scm?
<deasy> 3.11.1 is here since yesterday
<deasy> if i want to build a gentoo on cubie i must use it
<brain_> that is my modules output, i have no tried the kernel you linked. tried many 3.0 kernels up to 76
<techn__> brain_: how cat /dev/input0 responds?
<techn__> oh.. it's input2
<brain_> I can only get output from cat /dev/input when using OEM module, that "szg" stuff in the oem module confuses me, i cannot find any code that will reproduce the init section.
pirea has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<brain_> I would rather fix the module so I could get my ubuntu touch working as well and ditch android but again, dead end it seems.
<atsampson> brain_: I've recently got CM9 and CM10 going on an A10 tablet (with ft5x but the stock driver works for me)
<atsampson> CM10 was fairly straightforward; CM9 has bitrotted quite a bit and needed some hand-hacking
notmart has quit [Quit: notmart terminated!]
<brain_> atsampson, did you oem module have any custom init lines like my pastebin or was it a standard module from any tree?
<atsampson> no, stock module, no extra args; the dmesg output looks like this:
<atsampson> in yours, "twi_addr=70" suggests it's on a different I2C address from mine...
Galland has left #linux-sunxi ["Saliendo"]
<brain_> odd, my built modules looked very similar but i got no output from cat /dev/input*
<atsampson> that might be what you'd expect if it's on a different address (or a different interrupt, or something); maybe your custom module has something different hardcoded in it...
<atsampson> anyway, if it's of any use to you, I've put my manifests and some notes on what I had to hand-hack here:
<brain_> thank you atsampson, i'll give that a shot next, thanks for the help and I will see how this works out.
auxym has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
<brain_> the stock firmware is just horrid, CM10 really moves on my tab compared to stock. even if I can get CM9 i'll be happy...lets see.

<ZetaNeta> what is the proccess of porting Linux onto new A13 board
<oliv3r> ZetaNeta: A23?
tgaz has joined #linux-sunxi
<oliv3r> ZetaNeta: nobdoy has an a23 yet, but we expect it to be sun7i with less options
<ZetaNeta> 13
<ZetaNeta> oliv3r, 13!
vaxholm has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<oliv3r> A13 is sun5i which is old and well supported
<ZetaNeta> well, i got a unknown board with A13
<ZetaNeta> Tablet
<oliv3r> ZetaNeta: i know wingrime has a13 tab
<ZetaNeta> And i got one
<ZetaNeta> and want to know how to do linux-sunxi on it
<ZetaNeta> "As android isnt enough for me"
<ZetaNeta> as well, as i cant hack networks with it
<ZetaNeta> (Not even nmap!)
<hno> :( my old Cubieboard 1 is seriously ill...
<oliv3r> looks like a varily standard a13, did you try the fedora 19 image from hansg using the a13 'mid'?
<oliv3r> hno: yours too? mine has no PHY again :)
<ZetaNeta> yup
<ZetaNeta> i tried building, changing script.bin, trying all A13 board.
<ZetaNeta> so, whats the full port proccess? Is it described somewhere?
<tgaz> ZetaNeta, is a reasonable start
<tgaz> new here, but thinking of revamping the wiki. hard to find the important stuff (boot sequence, what the different tools do, which branch to use)

<hno> oliv3r, yes, it's been rock solid forever, but now it's very unstable, most times failing SDRAM initialization even on the stock factory test image.
<hno> and easily hangs later if it gets past SDRAM setup.
<hno> sad time.
<oliv3r> :(
<oliv3r> ironically i pronounced the A10 dead today!
<hno> you did?
<oliv3r> yeah, since i do most work now on a20, and CB1's phy is broken again/still
<oliv3r> so i shun it!
<oliv3r> yet my tablet is a10 and i use it daily ;)
<ZetaNeta> one of my tablets is on a10.
<ZetaNeta> Anyone know a replacement..... touchscreen.... and the board...... for it?
<ZetaNeta> Becouse top part of the screen is dead
<ZetaNeta> And the power switch too
<ZetaNeta> through, powerswitch isnt much trouble
nove has quit [Quit: nove]
<hno> ZetaNeta, there several thousand different A10 tablet models by too many manufacturers... but sounds like it would be cheaper to get a new tablet than trying to repair.

<ZetaNeta> can i somehow gather u-boot from my device?
<ZetaNeta> or somehow add my device
<ZetaNeta> Olaff,
<ZetaNeta> oliv3r,
<ZetaNeta> You should change you nickname. Or kick the Olaff somehow
<oliv3r> haha, oliver is taken
<ZetaNeta> ofcourze, thats freenode. Its not all that free
<ZetaNeta> Try 111. you will most probably be the first one in everyones tabs
<ZetaNeta> or 000
<ZetaNeta> or more zeroes
* ZetaNeta remembers about /dev/zero
<ZetaNeta> Zeroes......
<ZetaNeta> oliv3r,
<ZetaNeta> so
<ZetaNeta> can i?
<ZetaNeta> oliv3r, !!!
<hno> ZetaNeta, can what?
<ZetaNeta> take, and use the u-boot from stock
<hno> stock u-boot do nothing... only loads Android kernel image and boots it. relies on Allwinner bootloader running before it.

<hno> not quite sure why they added the u-boot step after their bootloader.
<ZetaNeta> hno, Tons of reasons to use u-boot
<ZetaNeta> hno, I already submitted it
<ZetaNeta> But, i like need linux on it tomorow :P
<ZetaNeta> With nmap, msf, xchat and terminator
<hno> ZetaNeta, adding your board to u-boot is easy. sunxi-tools/bootinfo your_dumped_boot1_header
<ZetaNeta> :D
<ZetaNeta> And where do i get the header?
<hno> gives you the data you need.
<hno> by the instructions in the link above.
<hno> you then need to add your board to boards.cfg boards/sunxi/dram_... and boards/sunxi/Makefile

<brain_> I had no problem building u-boot for my tablet..the problem came up when i powered it up holding 1 in serial console and replacing the bin...after that the new uboot would load instantly with no countdown to stop autoboot so I was kinda stuck.
<ZetaNeta> A10 USB FEL device not found!
<ZetaNeta> brain_, The problem is that my device is new
<brain_> ahh gotcha.
fredy has joined #linux-sunxi
<ZetaNeta> And change my CPU to A10 :D
<ZetaNeta> jk
<ZetaNeta> i like a13
<brain_> I dont like odd numbers.. :) A10 for me
<ZetaNeta> it doesnt seem to boot into fel
<ZetaNeta> and doesnt seem to be A10
<ZetaNeta> how should this mode look like?
<ZetaNeta> hno, Do you mean i need to get script.fex?
<brain_> felboot on mine is volume-up > insert USB cable > power X5
<brain_> or their is a button to make it simple :) but i rarely use it, too small

<oliv3r> ZetaNeta: no clue :p
<brain_> I was able to boot CM9 completely into android UI with most hardware working using A13 build so there can't be many differences to make linux work. only had some screen flicker.
<ZetaNeta> brain_, The thing is.... There is no android build for it either
<oliv3r> ZetaNeta: what is on your tablet right now?
<oliv3r> just prepare an SD card as explained on the wiki for starters :)
<ZetaNeta> android, but i mean there is no android build for it exept stock
<ZetaNeta> ls
<ZetaNeta> sry
<ZetaNeta> wrong place XD
<brain_> hmm, then i wonder what the heck I installed lol.
<ZetaNeta> brain_, Can you understand that all A13 are different. Its not like only thing that matters is cpu
<ZetaNeta> The thing is the board
<ZetaNeta> They work different
<brain_> i usually just swapped script.bin...i dunno its been a while before I gave up on pre built stuff.
<ZetaNeta> Well, i tried that
<ZetaNeta> With olinuxino board configs
<ZetaNeta> Didnt work
<ZetaNeta> also i tried even the MID one. Yet, nothing
<ZetaNeta> First function
<ZetaNeta> Its the error it gives

<hno> oliv3r, I think ZetaNeta did not follow instructions. fel dump of boot0/ script.bin only works in SOFT FEL mode triggered by keys, not if using the hard FEL button.
<hno> using hard FEL button gives that USB error as it hangs the CPU when trying to access non-existing DRAM.
