Android on SAMA5D3 Xplained and PM4300B touchscreen

Wed Jun 04, 2014 7:08 am

Hi All

I'm trying to bring up Android on SAMA5D3 Xplained and PM4300B touch screen.
I started following the guide at
trying to boot the prebuilt demo for the NandFlash. However, when I ran 

Code: Select all

I get the error

Code: Select all

-E- === Unknown sama5d36 + board ek_pda combination ===
I traced it till I found that the tcl code was failing to find the file sama5d36ek_pda.dtb. I gave it a shot and renamed sama5d34ek_pda.dtb -which was included in the package- and finally I got android to boot, but the touch screen didn't work. I can see android logo and home page, but it's not responding to touches or key strokes on the 4 keys on the PM4300B.

I gave another shot with the ISI package. I got downloaded successfully out of the box without have to rename any of the files, but still I got the same problem with the touch screen.

I tried attaching a USB mouse, and it worked ok. 
I guess the problem might be because the prebuilt demo package is targeted -for sama5d3x-ek kits with different touchscreen.
If that's right, how can I compile the kernel/android to use PM4300B touchscreen?
Did anybody ran into similar porblem?

I'm new to the world of ARM MPUs and I'd like to start with Atmel ATSAMA5D3 Xplained evaluation board.
I'm interested mostly in Android development. Please, if you have solutions to your problems, report them here.
