Sunxi u-boot loader The linux-sunxi git page contains a lot of sources for all Olimex Allwinner boards.


A13-OLinuXino-MICRO has only 256MB of RAM, Android 4.x requires at least 512MB to run well. Running obsolete Android would be possible but without video acceleration )since only MALI requires around 200MB). Forget for Android on this board.

Changing A13-OLinuxino-MICRO screen resolution

The default Debian SD card setup is made with settings for VGA 800x600. If you want to switch resolutions between VGA (800x600) and LCD (4.3'' or 7'' or 10.1'', respectively with native screen resolutions of 480x242, 800x480 and 1024x600) then you have to replace the existing script.bin file from the first SD card partition (note that this partition is FAT - so you can replace the file under Windows or Linux) with the script.bin file from script_GPIO_VGA_xxx directory (with the desired VGA resolution mode) or from script_GPIO_LCD_xxx directory (with the desired LCD resolution mode).

The archive of scripts might be download from here: all available screen resolution scripts for A13-MICRO

Note that these A13-MICRO scripts are not compatible with the A13 boards. Please check the A13 wiki article for such scripts.

Kernel 3.4.x compile
