Manual installation


The vendor U-Boot is configured with a bootdelay of 0, entering a prompt by pressing keys does not seem to work.

From the pre-installed Android system you can get to a U-Boot prompt by entering at the shell:

reboot bootloader
mkdir ${SDK}
tar -zxpf android5.1_sdk_cubieboard7_v1.0.tar.gz -C ${SDK}
cd ${SDK}
git reset --hard
cd u-boot
make s700_cb7_sd_defconfig
make -jX u-boot-dtb.img
(cd ../owl/scripts; ./padbootloader ../../u-boot/u-boot-dtb.img )
${SDK}/owl/tools/utils/bootloader_pack ${SDK}/owl/s700/boards/android/s700_cb7/bootloader.ini \


The 4.13 kernel does not have support for this SoC. A .dts file and driver patches are in the works.
