Hikey960 and screen


#21

@ric96 I think I have to run “make bootimage -j4” in hikey-linaro folder. Not in AOSP folder ? Because always command is running under https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest after repo sync.


#22

No, it has to be run in aosp folder.
Did you do lunch hikey960-userdebug before, make bootimage ? If not please do that as well. And no need to repo sync everytime if you’ve already done it once.


#23

It is OK. @ric96 Thank you very much. I want to write all step I have done. Maybe, someone who has a same problem, can find solution quickly.

Enter fastboot mode by turning ON switch 1 and 3 on Hikey960.

sudo fastboot flash boot out/target/product/hikey960/boot.img

Unplug USB Type C. Reboot Hikey960.

Hello @ric96 again,

You said to me that We recently added support LCD at following link for hikey960. Can you give a link about source code for this LCD in linaro kernel?

@tesmnorth and @ric96 I was trying to repeat the commands from https://source.android.com/setup/devices but I always encounter the same problem.

When I execute ./flash-all.sh I can not program certain partitions as they don’t exist. Do you know what is the problem?

Just in case if I use the abovementioned images (prm_ptable.img) from prebuild or generated images I can program all the partitions but I can not run AOSP (the log is below):

Do you know if the images in device/linaro/hikey/installer/hikey960 are obsolete?

Do you know if I need to use certain sec_xloader or other images for correct AOSP work?


#28

https://android-review.googlesource.com/#/c/kernel/hikey-linaro/+/505547/2/drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/adv7511/adv7511_drv.c


#29

@ric96 it has any document? Because, I want to try to add this driver to OP-TEE.


#30

@ric96 now, I also have hikey board. How can I install these commands output to HiKey board. 7inch screen doesn’t run.


#31

I am trying to get the WaveShare 7" screen to work with HiKey-960. The resolution is 1024x600.

I am seeing black screen. I assume the the adv7511 driver does not support 1024x600. What changes do I have to make to get this resolution working?


#32

I actually have one of my hikey960’s running with a 1024x600 in native resolution, so it isn’t an issue of support, however I will give you some notes on it;

  1. My 1024x600 has a scaler, so you can throw anything at it and it will display it.

  2. My 1024x600 is very insensitive to timing inaccuracies.

  3. It doesn’t work very well at 60 Hz, it flickers all over the place and has rotating bands, so I had to crank it up to 70 Hz.

  4. The place where you need to make the change is in the kernel commandline, which you can modify HERE; https://android.googlesource.com/device/linaro/hikey/+/master/hikey960/BoardConfig.mk#11

  5. You will need to add something like this; video=HDMI-A-1:1024x600@70

  6. The Hikey960 is NOT entirely compliant with HDMI standards. The timings are off a bit. Hardware issue, nothing you can do about it. Some monitors are OK with that and will work just fine. Others will freak out and shut down. If your monitor supports multiple resolutions, try some non-native ones if you have to, and maybe you’ll get something out of it. Or maybe not.


#33
Download and extract HDMI binaries:
$ wget https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aosp/arm-hikey960-OPR-cf4e0c80.tgz
$ tar xzf arm-hikey960-OPR-cf4e0c80.tgz
$ ./extract-arm-hikey960.sh

Please tell the latest version of HDMI binary file “arm-hikey960-XXX-*”


#34

You do not need any external binaries package. They are now all delivered with the Android device tree (devices/linaro/hikey/…)

Trying to add external binaries package will break display output.


#35

Thanks @doitright

I am basically looking for the files
vendor/linaro/hikey960/hisilicon/proprietary/libOMX_Core.so
vendor/linaro/hikey960/hisilicon/proprietary/lib64/libOMX_Core.so
vendor/linaro/hikey960/hisilicon/proprietary/libstagefrighthw.so
vendor/linaro/hikey960/hisilicon/proprietary/lib64/libstagefrighthw.so

How could I get those ?


#36

There are no such files.


#37

Could any input and idea ?
I did below commands, but still no anything output on LED HDMI monitor,
this monitor can working 1080x800@60 on Windows 10 Home,

How come hikey960 HDMI output on this monitor still black screen,
I also try 5 different monitor on offices, nothing working,

what I did is below.

  1. Enter fastboot mode by turning ON switch 1 and 3.
  2. Flash images by running the following commands:

mkdir ~/aosp
cd ~/aosp
repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b master
repo sync -j$(nproc)
wget https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aosp/arm-hikey960-OPR-cf4e0c80.tgz
tar xzf arm-hikey960-OPR-cf4e0c80.tgz
./extract-arm-hikey960.sh
. ./build/envsetup.sh
lunch hikey960-userdebug
nano device/linaro/hikey/hikey960/BoardConfig.mk

add “BOARD_KERNEL_CMDLINE += video=HDMI-A-1:1280x800@60”

make clean
make -j4
git clone https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/hikey-linaro
cd hikey-linaro
git checkout -b android-hikey-linaro-4.9 origin/android-hikey-linaro-4.9
make ARCH=arm64 hikey960_defconfig
make ARCH=arm64 CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-android- -j4
cp ~/Desktop/hikey-linaro/hikey-linaro/arch/arm64/boot/dts/hisilicon/hi3660-hikey960.dtb ~/Desktop/androidsource/device/linaro/hikey-kernel/hi3660-hikey960.dtb-4.9
cp ~/Desktop/hikey-linaro/hikey-linaro/arch/arm64/boot/Image.gz ~/Desktop/androidsource/device/linaro/hikey-kernel/Image.gz-hikey960-4.9
cd ~/Desktop/androidsource
make bootimage -j4
sudo fastboot flash boot out/target/product/hikey960/boot.img

cd device/linaro/hikey/installer/hikey960
./flash-all.sh

  1. Turn OFF switch 3 and power cycle the board.

I can see hikey960 doing something on blink LED, but nothing on screen.


#38

A computer monitor at 1280x800 will probably require DVI-D signalling rather than HDMI signalling (the two display standards are electrically compatible but not protocol compatible, and the tendancy for DVI-D devices to adopt HDMI connectors makes things even more confusing).

I’m afraid I’m not very familiar with how hikey960 works with DVI-D devices (AFAIK my monitor tolerates both). Do you get an image if you adopt 1280x720@60 instead?


#39

Hey @danielt : most of my displays actually run at 1280x800. I also have one that runs 1024x600.

@powenko : Could you provide more details about your monitor?

  • Specifically what monitor is it? (i.e., provide a link to the manufacturer or vendor’s website)
  • What is the monitor’s POWER SOURCE? I’ve found that monitors that are powered by USB will NOT work on Hikey960, since the power is not applied early enough for the monitor to be available when being probed. In this case, you will need to power the monitor externally (which can be through the 5V pin on the LS header, which is powered much earlier than the USB ports).

A lot of monitors are excessively sensitive to input clock signals, and will not activate if the signal is even slightly out of “spec”. I would imagine that your office purchases monitors in bulk, and so they are probably all the same or similar model that you tried, right? The Hikey960 puts out about 58 Hz when it should put out 60 Hz. That makes it incompatible with a lot of monitors.

I have observed a 100% compatibility with monitors using the “PCB800xxx” series of HDMI boards, which includes most ebay and aliexpress LCDs. These boards are extremely forgiving when it comes to input signals.
