PicUntu Development update RK3066/3188

Postby aloksinha2001 » Mon May 20, 2013 6:50 pm

A lot of work by Omegamon, Olegk0, Galland, Justin have happened on this so far..

Quite a bit of development activity is on... hopefully something should come up soon... (hopefully :mellow: )
Just a small update on where we are


1. Upgraded PicUntu Kernel to 3.036+ (for MK808)
Added MALI GPU.
Working so far, working very good. This is a kernel extracted from Gallands github.
We are due to release a ditribution, with all the linuxroot images... Priority 3


2. Media Tek 5931/BT 6622 still NOT working.. spent a lot of energy, the 3.0.36+ kernel has a mtk_common, module, but that does not help.
We (both me and Galland, have spent several days) - non-stop, trying to get the MT5931/BT6622 to work... tried from different sources, but it seems that the drier sources are incomplete.
Have written to Media Tek for some answers. Nothing received so far. Andrew was kind enough to reach out to their team and get us the sources.. but they also seem incomplete...
I have asked my business partner in Taiwan to connect with MediaTek team so that we can get some answers... lets hope for the best... for now, this is again parked back.
Any other inputs for the MT sources would be deeply appreciated.


3. Received Tronsmart 428 (Thanks to Perry) for sending the sticks.
a. Tried different versions of Android kernels on them - Finless, 411 1.4 rom is the only one that works... but unfortunately, it fails the rkunpack check... so am not able to dig deeper into it, will try to port in other ROMs... into my kitchen and see what is possible.
b. Linux 3.0.36+ does mention the possibility of rk3188... giving it a shot... no luck so far... get a blank boot screen...
c. Tried to setup debug consoles... - not very successful yet.

Will continue to work on the same... and keep you guys updated...

1. Upgraded PicUntu Kernel to 3.036+ (for MK808)

Can we use the kernel in mk802 iiis?Is there any other kernel that can drive mali400 for mk802 iiis?

I hope there will be some luck with MT5931 and that You will succeed to make it work OK. Even if not so thank you very much for all the efforts. Think you are doing great job...

Don't know if this can help. I have iMito mx1 and I compiled mt5931 driver from sources and did some charges in https://github.com/aloksinha2001/picunt ... dmmc.c.new to match Pins for power and reset. It finds the chip and i can iwlist wlan0 scan with (see all the networks), but unfortunatly i cannot set the essid getting a timeout on the driver mmc interface. :cry:
