AMLogic S802 / M802 Android 4.4 SDK, Documentation and Reference Schematics Are (Almost) Available

We’ve seen in the past AMLogic sometimes pushes some updated GPL software releases on their Open Linux website. So I went to have a look a few days ago, and to my surprise they already had instructions to download and build Android 4.4 for AMLogic M802 (Tablet) and S802 (STB), “user’s guides”, as well as links to reference schematics for the tablets… Nice!!!

I started with 4.4_ReleaseInfo for “Mbox” (S802), which explains how to get the SDK release on 2014-01-27 (kk-amlogic-20140127):


Unfortunately the joy stopped right there, as you need to send your SSH public key to your representative. I’ve just done that, and sent an email to support [at] amlogic.com, and mbox-android [at] amlogic.com on Sunday, and I have yet to gain access. I’ve found the “mbox-android” email in from Mbox page (similar to screenshot above) in a field right of “reference schematics” column, which has been removed since then. I’ve just noticed you actually need to fill a form with your company details to potentially get approval.

I’ve also found out that links to schematics and “user’s guides” all ask you to “please contact your sales window”, so there’s basically nothing available from this “open source” website, except the GPL source code directory last updated in April 2013, and there’s obviously nothing about S802/M802. There’s also  documentation available publicly or via NDA / SLA depending on the doc. Finally a Tools page is available, but with all information referring to files in the SDK.

The media box reference platform appears to be called “AML-M802 K200” with either 1 or 2GB RAM. and there appears to be two tablets reference designs: M802 K100 and M802 K101. There’s also a TV section for AMLogic T802?, but it’s empty for now.
