Are you kidding?! There's nothing that could 'come' since it's there from the beginning. It's just defining that you want to use an LCD instead of HDMI (or configuring how you want to combine two displays to be used at the same time) and it's done the usual way we're doing this on every other Allwinner SoC with BSP kernel since years: http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...9#pid20149

There's nothing 'experimental', the BSP kernel was able to use the LCD from the beginning, it's just different settings. And it's still done the same way as we know it from older Allwinner SoCs and BSP.

The only problem this community here had or still has is it that some people were so blinded by 'the Mali' hype that they didn't realize that if you want to use an LCD you have to switch settings to use the LCD. No 3D acceleration needed for using a display! Read through the above thread to get the sad details.

Bleh.. I've tried 

wget -O /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-a64-lcd-pine64-plus.dtb https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ayufan...4-plus.dtb
sed -i '1isetenv fdtfile sun50i-a64-lcd-pine64-plus.dtb' /boot/boot.cmd
mkimage -C none -A arm -T script -d /boot/boot.cmd /boot/boot.scr
reboot

Step by step please since you make it sound so easy and it's already there. =P All i'm getting at is tons of segmentation errors on xenial-pine64-bspkernel if trying to install Mate Desktop or apt-get upgrade -y .. And, an armbian that can't even detect Ethernet to ssh to. Atleast dood is trying to do something there no thanks to everyone here..
