Some terminal tricks

Some very handy tricks came in, via the Mele blog from Thierry Merle

Going to try these as soon as possible.

Remove the IR capability

Install an Android terminal, and then:
rmmod sun4i_ir
removes the IR sensor capability (useless with the F10 remote).

Blue LED turn red

The next annoying thing was the blue LED, too bright from my taste; the red one is better. Sanction:
echo ‘0’ > /sys/devices/platform/gpio_sw.1/gpio_sw/PH20/data
and power on the red one, just in order to see that the device is ON:
echo ‘1’ > /sys/devices/platform/gpio_sw.0/gpio_sw/PH10/data

Mount CIFS

CIFS module is loaded; you can mount CIFS network shares like this:
mkdir -p /mnt/cifs/videos
busybox mount -t cifs -o user=guest,domain=MYGROUP // /mnt/cifs/videos
(change the parameters with yours).

ADP over TCP (wifi/ethernet)

Enable adb connection via TCP (instead of USB):
setprop service.adb.tcp.port 5555
stop adbd
start adbd
ifconfig eth0
