    Ok, I had hoped I could identify some tools, but it's only a marketing video...

    EDIT:
    ok, the second link is a little bit more helpful... I think they use the known directories (at kernel) to determine the values via USB... but I think no way to get this program...

    This was the one that I saw the one from Shomari does demonstrate it well.

    NOT A17

    I have an RK3288 and it is NOT CORTEX A17, according to the kernel messages.

    Also of note, anyone considering paying a premium for Cloudnetgo tv boxes might want to take a look over at this thread:

    http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.p...l=1#post224988

    I was after a certain Bluetimes tv box to confirm it has the same pcb as Cloudnetgo CR12 - and upon receipt of the device my suspicions were more than upheld...

    As you correctly suggest, ARM says big.LITTLE is a feature of an A17 with 8 cores, which the RK3288 does not.

    An interesting find within the file system of an RK3288 tablet.

    Could it be that the latest iteration of 3288 is now compliant, therefore able to advertise as A17?

    About the A80, looks good:

    Merrii is doing good development boards like the Humminbird or this one. Just the lack od documentation and community is the problem. I was talking with their english speaker sales and does not look like they put attention in my questions (anyway invited me to visit their office and explain more, but I dont really have time for now...).
    Its clear Rockchip knew they were in breach of ARM's licensing back in January 2014 at CES 2014 but they've since continued to mislead their customer base with false A17 advertising in fear of damaging their reputation.



    Edward Weinert has posted a full write up.

    http://edwardweinert.com/nowosci/201...-a12-mali-t764

    ARM's website also state,

    'The Cortex-A17 processor is architecturally aligned with the broadly deployed Cortex-A7 processor, enabling next-generation mid-range devices based on******big.LITTLE******technology.'

    http://www.arm.com/products/processo...=TopNaviL27328

    CNX Soft have written a great comparison of this years SOC's.

    What do you think to Rockchip misrepresenting / advertising the RK3288 as an A17, since its actually an A12, because it doesn't feature bigLITTLE.

    Considering Allwinner have recently released their A80, with ARMs bigLITTLE architecture, Rockchip are playing dirty marketing trick since their already a generation behind.

    You boot Android or Linux from an SD card by default.

    Supposedly from the same people that launched the Popcorn Hour box a few years ago.
    Maybe you should open a new thread for this interesting piece with alu case (also as heatsink) and booting from removable SD Card ...
