Some terminal tricks

Some very handy tricks came in, via the Mele blog from Thierry Merle
http://tmerle.blogspot.nl/2012/08/new-hack-mele-a2000.html

Going to try these as soon as possible.

Remove the IR capability

Install an Android terminal, and then:
su
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:
su
mkdir -p /mnt/cifs/videos
busybox mount -t cifs -o user=guest,domain=MYGROUP //192.168.2.289/videos /mnt/cifs/videos
(change the parameters with yours).

ADP over TCP (wifi/ethernet)

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