Updates to Allwinner Images

A new batch of ARMv7 images for Allwinner is now released by Icenowy Zheng (with date tags 20161212 and 20161213). One of the main changes is the inclusion of AOSC ARM Flasher for updating Linux Kernel for all supported Allwinner devices (will be available for Raspberry Pi 2/3 soon).

As a side note however, any images released before December 12th, 2016 (thus a date tag older than 20161212) does not include this mechanism, and it is strongly advised that you enroll your device to the Flasher so that you may obtain Kernel updates (feature and security).

To enroll your device, run the following series of commands as root (just copy and paste to the terminal and press Enter, the commands should finish automatically):

echo deb http://repo.aosc.io/os-armel/sunxi/os3-dpkg / > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/10-sunxi.list && apt update && apt dist-upgrade -y && apt install aosc-os-armel-sunxi-boot aosc-os-arm-boot-flasher -y && FLASHER_CAPABILITIES='bootloader kernel' aosc-arm-flasher

New images are now available in the Downloads page.
