Ubuntu OS Can Run on Mele A1000 ARM PC

 Ubuntu OS Can Run on Mele A1000 ARM PC
It appears that Aliexpress is selling a small ARM-based device that runs Android 2.3, but can be easily hacked to run the popular Ubuntu operating system.



Mele A1000 is actually sold as a TV box for $70. It is powered by an ARM-based Allwinner A10 chip. It features 1.2 GHz Cortex A8 ARM CPU with a MALI400MP OpenGL ES 2.0 GPU, HDMI, CVBS, and VGA video ouput, R+L, SPDIF audio output, USB port, SD Card slot, eSATA (external SATA) port, and Ethernet port.

As you can see from the video above, it appears that someone (ZeNiTRaM) already tested the device with the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) operating system, booted straight from the SD card.

Barry Kauler, the father of the Puppy Linux distribution, made a request on the arm-netbook mailinglist asking for the SD card image of the Ubuntu OS demoed in the video above.

For those interested to test Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on the Mele A1000 device, here's the 2 GB image of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

  1. Hi All....
    http://rhombus-tech.net/allwinner_a10/hacking_the_mele_a1000/,
    In this link they specified 'how to change U-boot for SDCARD/MMC boot of A1000 mele box. They said to download U-boot from " git clone http://git.hands.com/u-boot.git".. And they said to change the file "include/configs/suni4.h" in U-Boot directory. But it wasn't available. Can any one say that the file(include/configs/suni4.h) is missing with my u-boot directory or some other procedure to change u-boot for SDCARD/MMC boot.
    Thanks in advance

  2. Hi all...

    How to enable ADB interface as they said in http://elinux.org/Hack_A10_devices. Because Mele A1000 doesn't have any key, other key other than power key. But they said to press other than power key to enable ADB interface

    Thanks in advance
