Mele A200 is a cheap A10s Set-Top-Box. There is an early version without Ethernet, and later version with dual core A20. This page is written based on the A10s version device with an Ethernet.

On the back of the device, the following is printed:
The PCB has the following silkscreened on it:
AB10S-G41A-V1.40-0 WLBM:831-2454140-90 2012-11-06
In android, under Settings->About Tablet, you will find:
- Model Number: DEVICE
- Build Number: SOC_BOARD_DEVICE_*.*
Please note, there are several version of A200, the information here is based on single core (A10s) version with LAN port.
sunxi-linux-3.4 works fine (as headless server).
Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE specific sunxi ROM images here. E.g. a livesuit image or some other linux image which uses linux-sunxi code. Do not put non-sunxi images here, they should live under See also. If no sunxi based images are available, this section can be left blank.
Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE HW-pack specifics here. This section can be left blank.
Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE BSP specifics here. This section can be left blank.
- For building u-boot, use the MANUFACTURER_DEVICE target.
- The .fex file can be found in sunxi-boards as MANUFACTURER_DEVICE.fex
Everything else is the same as the manual build howto.
For generic upstream u-boot, follow the Google groups post here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/linux-sunxi/upstream$20uboot/linux-sunxi/z2kby8B38o8/rU2YUi55bTkJ
Here is instruction that works for Mele A200, after setting up cross compiler.
- export PATH="/path/to/cross/compiler/bin:$PATH"
- make -j2 CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf- A10s-OlinuXino-M_defconfig
- make -j2 CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-
- dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/your_mmc_card bs=1024 seek=8
Mele A200 has some difference from A10s-OlinuXino-M, will try to address it later (TODO). mmc works, HDMI works, USB keyboard works (storage seems work), network works.
For building mainline u-boot, use the MANUFACTURER_DEVICE target.Don't forget to add
[[Category:Mainline_U-Boot]]at the bottom of the page.
Most of components are supported by mainline kernel. Use this Wip dts patch for preliminary device-tree file. The configuration file is for Debian Jessie.
Use the FAMILY-CHIP-DEVICE.dtb device-tree file for the mainline kernel.Don't forget to add
[[Category:Mainline_Kernel]]at the bottom of the page.

Device specific topic
Although the forum post is about A10 Olimex-lime, it is tested works on A200, using sunxi-3.4 kernel and Debian Wheezy.
Adding a serial port (voids warranty)
This section explains how to attach a serial port to the device. Make sure it refers to our UART howto. For a development board, you can just mention how to find the header with the pins and include a picture, and you can remove the warranty voiding warning.
The CPU is marked as "A10s", RTL8201cp LAN chip, RTL8188eus WIFI chip, AXP152 power chip.
Locating the UART
Describe how to find the RX,TX,GND signals here, and mention the UART howto.
Take some pictures of your device, upload them, and add them here. DO NOT UPLOAD PICTURES WHICH YOU PLUCKED OFF THE INTERNET.

Optional. Add non-sunxi images in this section.
