Installation

Follow the Installation guide, use sdcard method. Then insert microSD into TF-card slot and plug the power cable, pmOS should boot. If not, try once again (on cold boot SPL sometimes decides there is 4096 MiB of RAM and boot hangs).

To install to eMMC, flash ondev to SD or run pmbootstrap from present pmOS installation on SD.

Serial console

See linux-sunxi wiki page, connect your USB-UART adapter's RX to board's TX and vice versa.

OTG

As said in board's DTS,

/*
 * This board doesn't have a controllable VBUS even though it
 * does have an ID pin. Using it as anything but a USB host is
 * unsafe.
 */

So you can't connect it to a PC via microUSB to transfer data, it will only gain charge. But there is 5 standard USB ports that can be used to connect any devices.

Audio

Hardware codec isn't supported in Linux kernel yet, so audio jack output won't work. However, HDMI audio works.

Ethernet

Will work after this aports MR is merged.

Mini PCIe

The Mini PCIE had provided one usb bus and one pcie x1 bus. The usb bus work but the pcie bus doesn't work, and likely won't ever. See linux-sunxi wiki for details so the only mini pcie card going to work with it is card that use the uab 2.0(like some of the 1g/2g/3g/4g modem).

GPIO

Untested, but seems to work.

CVBS

Untested, but seems not to work.

Ir Rx

Not working (needs kernel config adjustment).
