More AMLogic AML8726-MX Source Code Released by Ainol

Last week, I found out that AMLogic released the kernel source code for AML8726-MX, its dual core Cortex A9 processor, but this code is only for the “common” platform, and some source code specific to tablets or media players is missing (e.g. some drivers). But today, Ainol released the source code for the Ainol Novo 7 Elf II and Aurora II tablet, both of which are based on on AML8726-M6 dual core processor:

The files are pretty big, and the download very slow on my side (“1 day, 16 hours remaining”), so I’ll probably have to give up. I assume “fards” will import the source code into a new repo in his github account. Anyway, this potentially makes AMLogic AML8726-MX a very interesting development platform, although we’ll have to see if the bootloader source code is released, and what kind of multimedia libraries (GPU: OpenGL ES| Video Decoder/Encoder) for Android and Linux will be released.

I haven’t been able to look into this code (obviously since it’s still downloading), but I’m expecting to get the source code for the LCD display(s), touch screen, HDMI drivers and more. HDMI drivers are especially interesting for media player development, and hardware platforms such as Geniatech ATV1200 or ATV1600 might hopefully become hackable like the Mele A1000 with AllWinner A10.
