Hardware management tools for Allwinner computers

This package contains tools for Allwinner devices:

  1. sunxi-fexc, bin2fex, fex2bin: Compile a textual description of a board (.fex) to a binary representation (.bin).

  2. sunxi-fel: Puts an Allwinner device into FEL mode which makes it register as a special USB device (rather than USB host). You can then connect it to another computer and flash it from there.

  3. sunxi-nand-part: Partitions NAND flash.

  4. sunxi-bootinfo: Reads out boot0 and boot1 (Allwinner bootloader) parameters.

  5. sunxi-pio: Sets GPIO parameters and oscillates a GPIO in order to be able to find it.

  6. sunxi-meminfo: Prints memory bus settings.

  7. sunxi-nand-image-builder: Prepares raw NAND images.


Install the latest version of sunxi-tools as follows:

guix install sunxi-tools

Or install a particular version:

guix install sunxi-tools@1.4.2

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
