Hello folks in here you can find the legacy builds for Alpine OS - Legacy Kernel

All Releases are now here
https://github.com/atlury/Alpine-Linux-Allwinner-H3-Distro/


updated to 3.4.112 with all patches (including backdoor patches)

How to burn: For mainline u-boot
(a) In linux blank the first 1MB of the card using the following (my sd-card is /dev/sda1
  • dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M count=1
(b) Now Assuming you have got the file u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin, it just has to be burned to sd card using the following command:
  • dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/sda bs=1024 seek=8
(c) Next Using fdisk, create a new primary partition on the card (so far there are no partitions, only uboot has been burned on the card)
(d) Set the starting sector of the card as 2048
(e) Now create vfat file system on the newly created partition by running mkfs.fat /dev/sda1
(f) Using fdisk, set the bootable flag of the partition
(g) copy all the files into the above vfat or fat32 partition (namely vmlinuz, modloop-sunxi, initramfs-sunxi-new, boot.scr and please include your board specific script.bin) and it should boot...your final directory should like

/apks/
/vmlinuz-3.4.111-sun8i
/modloop-sunxi
/initramfs-sunxi-new
/boot.scr

You can find apks folder from the Generic ARM image available @ http://www.alpinelinux.org/downloads/ Just extract it. Please dont forget to include your board specific script.bin.

Note: Please make sure you replace script.bin with your correct board script.bin

Instructions on build from scratch are here (I am the author). I will slowly expand this threads with new tutorials etc. I will also release new images over the next few weeks....
