Allwinner A64 is likely to become quite popular as it will be used in PINE A64 board, Olimex open source hardware laptop featuring A64-OLinuXino board, and some low cost tablets. We’ve already got some documentation such as Allwinner A64 datasheet and user’s manual, but AFAIK, there was no source code released for the board.
The good news is that you can now download Android 5.1 SDK and Linux source code on Baidu with four files available:
- lichee_A64_A5.1_V1.0.tar.gz – Linux source code
- android_A64_A5.1_V1.0.tar.gz– Android 5.1 SDK
- android_prebuilts_A64_A5.1_V1.0.tar.gz – Some pre-built binaries for Android
- A64硬件资料.zip – Documentation including the datasheet, product brief, and user’s manual which we’ve already got, but also some hardware with reference schematics, PCB layout files, and BoM for an Allwinner A64 tablet.
That’s about 7.4GB to download, and apart from the documentation, the download is not quite complete yet, so I could not look into the details of the release yet.
