On http://www.linksprite.com/?page_id=855 we find some Android images, f.e.
1. Android 4.2 bootable SD image - dated 08-26-2014
2. Android 4.2 NAND image - dated 04-04-2014
In the Preferences of Android someone can activate the communication over erthernet.
However, this mode can not be used until someone opens a terminal and as user root issues the command
1. insmod /system/vendor/modules/net622x.ko
2. insmod /system/vendor/modules/zet622x.ko
and disable and enable Ethernet again.
The appropriate insmod command has to be repeated at each boot of the pcDuino3.
Mounting the SD card for the image dated 08-26-2014 (see 1.) this process can be overcome by editing the file init.sun7i.rc directly on the SD card by inserting the line
directly under the line
# insmod network
Such modified file will overcome the problem of not being able to use Ethernet without manual insertion of the network module as described above.
For the Android 4.2 NAND image (see 2.) once installed such modification can not be done because
A. the file init.sun7i.rc is not modifiable even by root and
B. the file containing the recovery.img would need to be changed to.
My question is
Can anyone of Linksprite Android development team please make the above mentioned change to the script init.sun7i.rc (whereas the module mentioned under 1. is named net622x.ko and the module mentioned under 2. is named zet622x.ko) and make new images containing such changes available on the download page?
This would help those who do not have the capabilities to re-manufacture Android images.
Thank you for your kind attention.
