Optimal for multimedia and desktop usage scenarios.
Optimal for headless server usage. See status matrix for detailed comparison
  • PWM ready on pin PB2 (legacy)
  • bluetooth working with on-board device. Enabled by default on both kernels.
  • total memory is 2000Mb (disabled all memory reservations for GPU on CLI images)
  • due to bad PCB placement, there is some crosstalk between Wifi and VGA in certain videomodes
  • make sure you power the board via power connector otherwise your USB port won’t be powered
  • EDID detect video mode will fail on 4k monitor - you need to set it manually.
  • Our OS images are only for A20 based Cubietruck and do not work on H8 based so called Cubietruck Plus (we don't support CT+ anytime soon due too some design flaws like no real SATA and thermal problems)
