Q: What SoC are you using?
The SoC is a Amlogic S805 quad-core.
Q: What GPU does it include? ARM Mali-450 MP2.
In fact there are 4 GPU cores.
- 2 fragment(pixel) processors and
- 2 vertex shader processors(cores).
But normally we are counting the number of fragment processor only.
Q: How does it boot?
You have to boot from SD card or eMMC.
Q: Can I buy OS pre-loaded SD card or eMMC?
Yes. Add to cart it when you purchase the storage devices.
Q: Can I add extra RAM memory?
No. The RAM is not removable or swappable.
Q: How can I get Ubuntu/Android BSP source code?
U-boot, Kernel and OS source code are released via out Github from the first shipping date.
Q: Does it play 1080p contents well on Ubuntu Linux?
Yes, H.264/H.265/VC1/MPEG4/MPEG2 videos clips are playable with the XBMC/KODI in most cases.
But some variants of encoding options, a few video files can't play well.
Q: How can I root(rooting) the Android?
Unlocked/Rooted by default for developers
Q: How can I install the Google Play (Android Market/Google Store)?
It is very simple. Just download an installer and click it.
Refer this link.

Q: Can I get PCB layout file and gerber file?
No. The ODROID project is not a full open source hardware.
We release the schematics(PDF) only.
Q: Can I get data sheet for all parts?
[http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G141578608433&tab_idx=2 La liste est disponible sur ce lien.
Other available data sheets are all linked on our website. Others might need NDA process with chip manufactures.
Q: Can you test it to make sure that it is suitable for ?
If you want to use it for something that we haven’t tested, and that it’s not intended for, then that development work is up to you.
But a lot of community members will try to answer for your question (voyez en bas de la page)

- Micro-USB cable for fastboot and ADB interface (Not included)
Q: I have a USB-Serial converter. Should I buy your USB-UART module kit? No if you can solder the terminals on the board.
We strongly recommend to use our USB-UART module kit because it has a proper connector.
Q: How to access internet with ODROID-C1+?
- Use a 10/100/1000 LAN Ethernet connection
- or Buy the WiFi module kit for wireless connection.
Q: What display can I use?
There is a HDMI (Type-A) output port on ODROID-C1+.
Here is a list of supported resolution at this moment.

- 1024x768 (XGA)
- 800x600 (SVGA)
- 800x480 (WVGA)
- 640x480 (VGA)
for more detail : http://odroid.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=supported_resolutions
We will try to support more resolutions.
HDMI-DVI converter may work with many DVI monitors but a few of them will not work due to compatibility issue.
We also recommend our 7-inch HDMI LCD kit(ODROID-VU7) with a capacitive touch screen if you want to develop the modern user interface.
There is no analog VGA/TV output port. But there is a CVBS test point. Refer our schematics.
Q: Is there touch screen on the 7 inch HDMI LCD Kit (Vu7)?
Yes. 5-points multi-touch screen via USB interface.
Q: Where can I get HDMI cable?
You can purchase it from any open market such as ebay. Or you can purchase one on our website.
HDMI Type-A connector is required.
But some cables has a few missing ground wires and it causes malfunction with some monitors.
Q: My monitor doesn't have HDMI port. Any other display options are available?
You can use out 7-inch LCD kit which you can purchase on on our website.
Q: Is sound over HDMI supported?
Q: SPDIF or Optical path-through?
It is possible with our USB-SPDIF interface but it works with only XBMC on Ubuntu.
Android platform doesn't support the 5.1ch pass-through yet.
Q: Is there any Analog audio output or input?
No. But you can use our USB Audio Adapter. Nous en avons un disponible sur le webshop de MC Hobby
Q: Is there any I2S port to connect a HiFi DAC?
Oui, Vous pourrez également trouver un DAC Hifi sur le webshop de MC Hobby.
Q: What is eMMC module?
NAND flash based storage IC is mounted on our custom PCB for easier upgrade/replacement.
It is much faster than SD card.
Transfer rate of eMMC is 65MB/sec approx. in the real world, while SD(UHS-1) card is 30MB/sec approx.
Q: Do you have a SATA port?
No. But you can use a SATA-to-USB bridge device.
Q: Which power adaptor should I use?
The ODROID-C1+ consumes less than 0.5A in most cases, but it can climb to 2A if many passive USB peripherals are attached directly to the main board.
You can use our 5V/2A PSU or USB-to-DC Plug cable.
Q: What operating system (OS) does it use?
We recommend Android and Ubuntu as our default distribution. The OS is stored on the SD-card / eMMC.

- OpenCL is not supported.
Q: Where is the OpenGL-ES SDK?
ARM Mali Developers site. Voyez ce guide d'installation (Forum ODroid)
Q: Is full source code open and can I build it by myself?
Yes. Boot loader, Kernel and OS platform source code is available.
But the GPU user-land drivers are library(binary) format. (Limited by ARM's policy)
Q: Do I need to patch for optional accessories that purchased from this website?
No. They will work just out-of-box.
