    Arm - Amlogic

    Nice to see some SoC producers still feels some respect for GPL.

    Well the SoC manufacturers are expected to...

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I'm trying to play with this stuff, but I don't know what to put in when git asks for git@openlinux.amlogic.com's password. Any suggestions?
    I've bricked both my units trying to install the custom firmware for the W10, obviously, there's some difference in the boards. The vendor is lame and won't send me the original firmware. They're not totally bricked, but the recovery screen no longer allows button navigation and the video driver is messed up, so why not forge ahead and try building my own images.

    Any ideas on that password?

    Hey have you seen this. This guy figured out how to fix a bad firmware flash using linux and an 2gb microsd. Here is the link.

    I actually already tried that. They're not bricked per se', but the recovery image ain't quite compatible. So, I'm going to build a new one. I just need someone to tell me how to actually get the code from the git repository, because it keeps asking for a password.

    When you do this
    Code:
    repo init -u [EMAIL="git@openlinux.amlogic.com:platform/manifest.git"]git@openlinux.amlogic.com:platform/manifest.git[/EMAIL] -b froyo-amlogic-mid
    You are asked for the password for git@openlinux.amlogic.com. I don't know it. I tried to use my own email, but it didn't work. Maybe I'm not "gitting" it correctly? Can someone correct me on this?

    You might have to email Amlogic for it. I know when you compile Cyanogenmod source there is no password.

    Success!!! I have obtained from AMLogic the procedure for getting their source. I have included it below. Please anyone distribute this wherever it may be appropriate. The formatting of the copy/paste here is nasty. I don't know how to attach the file, so if anyone can help there. Or PM me I suppose if you want me to send it to you.

    Code:
     [CENTER][CENTER][U][B]Openlinux Access Request Procedure[/B][/U][/CENTER]
    [/CENTER]
        Openlinux is public server Amlogic uses to make source code accessible for authorized Amlogic partners.  The server is physically located in Beijing, China and managed by Amlogic IT.
      ONLY READ-ONLY ACCESS TO THE SERVER WILL BE PERMITTED.
       The following procedures should be followed to grant 3rd party partner access.
      [FONT=OpenSymbol]•    [/FONT]PMU
                   To grant new access:
      [B][FONT=&quot]1)      [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Receive and evaluate code access request from Amlogic partners.[/FONT][/B]
    
                        The partner will need to submit a public key to access our code base.
                        To generate public key, on Linux shell type
      [FONT=&quot]            $ ssh-keygen -t rsa[/FONT]
      [FONT=&quot]            $ cd ~/.ssh[/FONT]
      [FONT=&quot]            $ cat id_rsa.pub[/FONT]
            The id_rsa.pub is the generated public key and needs to be submitted to Amlogic.
            AMLOGIC ONLY SUPPORTS [B]LINUX[/B]DEVELOPMENT PLATFORM.

    Sorry, it's been a couple of days since I posted. If you email the request form with your public key to support@amlogic.com, they'll get back to you. I just now this minute thought I had everything set up correctly with the key sent to them, followed the instructions, but I've still got something wrong and haven't got the source yet. I have however stayed up all night screwing with it, so maybe a miracle will happen in the next five minutes before I have to take a shower and get ready for work.

    If you're a more experienced developer than I, or are at least better with git,repo,ssh,etc. then you might want to contact

    Hi madmalkav,

    Would you please upload the latest kernel sources? The Ainol Novo8 is also using the 8726M SoC. I am able to compile the the kernel from 04-06 and it is booting on the device. The only problem I have it is that it can't stay powered on without the charger plugged in. The sources from 04-06 is missing a display driver that Ainol Novo8 uses so no display. But I am able to connect to the device with adb tool.

    I am hoping the sources that you have will have the drivers for the display and fix for power issue.

    Here's a link to the work that I have been doing.

    source code Ainol NOVO8 android : Ainol MID - Page 5

    Thx,
    Chee

    Good afternoon. I have a clone of Ramos w10. I managed to compile a kernel driver from source, shared online openlinux.amlogic.com. But I have not earned a usb host. Could you put the downloaded your latest source code. thanks
