Querry for getting Source code and support for linux firmware


We have purchased two khadas vim pro boards for our study purpose. Now we are concentrated in how to change the firmware. In your website i can see that a number of image files in the firmware resources. I found the source code for linux kernal in github but i couldn’t understand which one should i use. Kindly provide us the whole source code for start learning the development and changing the characters in my own way. And please guide us to change the firmware.

Hi, Cinesoft:

The linux kernel source code are available at Github linux repo, just keep in mind that there are many different branches:

  • Vim: Android M
  • Nougat: Android N
  • ubuntu: linux-3.14 based on Android M

If you want to got mainline linux on Khadas VIM, you can take a reference of Martin’s github site

If you want to build Linux Distro for VIM, you can take a reference on Build Ubuntu from scrach.
