Allwinner A64 Android 5.1 SDK and Linux Source Code

Orange Pi Development Boards

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.

Allwinner_A64_SDK_LinuxThe 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.

Allwinner_A64_Tablet_SchematicsThat’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.

You might want to find a nice hosting site to upload everything to, since Baidu is terrible slow outside of Asia and afaik, you need to register to download large files…
You’re pretty good at finding all this stuff though 😀

Baidu is hell to download such files: slow, not wget friendly etc…

Download in progress in an x2go session on my server, mirror is coming. Baidu is a real pain.

I’ve managed to download all files through command line, thanks for “http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/01/14/downloading-files-on-baidu-or-via-http-bittorrent-or-metalink-in-linux-with-baiduexporter-aria2-and-yaaw/” and google chrome for translating baidu 🙂

Please found my mirror

Do you know if there is already a community for this A64 ?

@murlock
Thx for sharing! And nope, no ‘community’. Worth a read:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux-sunxi/Ze_UhiO00t8
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10713546
And on http://forum.pine64.org a rather clueless kickstarter crowd continually asking for the impossible 🙂

Thanks for doing this, Baidu was horribly slooooow. Maybe that would be handy to provide a list of MD5SUMs as well.

Just extracted the default device tree files from the lichee SDK for A64: http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/491-need-help-on-pine-a64-15-64bit-quad-core-12ghz-single-board-computer/?p=3155

Wish the Pine64 guys good luck regarding their FAQ contents about consumption and the need for (no) heatsink 🙂
