I believe that even today, you can prepare SD image that will basically install (dd) system to nand. It seems easier and more user friendly.

Allwinner wrote those tools and they work on all of their chips. They know the various bugs in the boot ROMs with FEL mode. I am also not in agreement with their approach, but these tools have been around since the A10 and they work everywhere.

Pine has not been exposed to this world since it lacks a eMMC chip on board.  I consider not having a eMMC chip a major flaw in Pine since eMMC is far faster and way more reliable than SD Card. Pine also has a big flaw in not having working OTG for FEL mode.

I am shifting development onto the BananaPi M64 board which does not have Pine's flaws.
http://www.banana-pi.org/m64.html

The Bpi boards are similar but not exact clones. It is a minor amount of work to port BananaPi M64 Android back to Pine. So far the only difference I have discovered other than the addition of more hardware is that wifi is on DLDO3 instead of DLDo4 (Pine).

BTW - NAND is a complete mess on Allwinner, avoid it if possible. That was another major reason for the Allwinner tools, they can use the various NAND controllers to write the NAND.

It seems to be problem of u-boot, and something that can be fixed for specific board with a kernel. I'm not saying that you should not use it, I had very bad experience that's all. Doing custom images I had a hell a lot of less problems and make them more reproducible then using their broken tooling.

Hi! Nice work!

It works well, however I have one problem. When using an app such as Spotify or Dplay to watch some swedish TV channels I'm not able to control the volume. I can only get 100% or 0% ... any ideas how to solve this problem? I'm using the airmouse sold by Pine64 and with 5.1 it works fine.

Hi Ayufan, this build works really nice!
Everything seems to be working really well but the android TV remote service. It crashed when a client tries to connect to it for missiing library.

yep! Smile Smile  That works! In addition if I have both apps installed android tv version sometimes seem to work or at least it doesnt throw the error.

I have some issue with Android TV Remote. The Android TV service stops every time I want to run it Confused  When I have some time I'm gonna report the bug with the dmesg output and so.
