After downloading the files, you will need to extract or decompress them. Please keep in mind that MacOS 11.6 or a higher version is required to extract 7z files.

To flash the OS image, you can use the following tools:

  • For Windows and macOS users, Etcher can be used to flash the image.
  • Linux users can employ the «dd» command to flash the image.

To learn how to create an image, please refer to our Wiki.

DevTerm Keyboard Firmware

DevTerm keyboard firmware flash program available. You can download it from this link: DevTerm Keyboard Firmware Flash Program.

Here’s how you can flash the firmware on DevTerm(A06 or CM4) or a PC running Ubuntu 22.04:

  1. Download the devterm_keyboard_flash.tar.gz file.
  2. Extract the contents of the archive: tar zxvf devterm_keyboard_flash.tar.gz.
  3. Install the required package using the following command: sudo apt install -y dfu-util.
  4. Navigate to the extracted directory: cd devterm_keyboard_flash.
  5. Execute the flash script with root privileges: sudo ./flash.sh.
  6. If everything goes well, you will see a progress bar indicating the flashing process.
  7. If any issues occur or the keyboard loses control (which is unlikely), simply reboot DevTerm to resolve it.
  8. Rest assured that this flash program will not brick your keyboard.

Gearbox

A04

Gearbox is a script tool used to adjust the A04 CPU frequency.
you can get it by running

sudo apt update 
sudo apt install -y devterm-gearbox-a04

you can run devterm-a04-gearbox to see the current core status.


Current Status:
+-----------------------------------+
|            Cortex-A53             |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
| CPU 0  | CPU 1  | CPU 2  | CPU 3  |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
|1320Mhz |1320Mhz |  OFF   |  OFF   |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+
CPU Governor: ondemand

Run sudo devterm-a04-gearbox -s [GEAR] to set gear, GEAR would be 1,2,3,4,5

There are 5 gears in gearbox

               1 for simple console tasks with long battery life.
               2 for simple writing tasks with long battery life.
               3 for most 2D games and emulators.
               4 for playing videos and 3D games,browsing websites.
               5 for performance-first tasks.

A06

Gearbox is a script tool used to adjust the big.LITTLE architecture of the A06 chip.
you can get it by running

sudo apt update 
sudo apt install -y devterm-gearbox-a06

In latest os image of A06, default Gearbox is set to use 4 LITTLE core with 816Mhz,GPU at 400Mhz

you can run a06-gearbox to see the current core status.

Current Status:
+-----------------------------------+-----------------+-----------+
|            Cortex-A53             |   Cortex-A72    | Mali-T860 |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+-----------+
| CPU 0  | CPU 1  | CPU 2  | CPU 3  | CPU 4  | CPU 5  |    GPU    |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+-----------+
| 816Mhz | 816Mhz | 816Mhz | 816Mhz |  OFF   |  OFF   |   400MHz  |
+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+--------+-----------+
CPU Governor: schedutil    GPU Governor: simple_ondemand

Run sudo a06-gearbox -s [GEAR] to set gear,GEAR would be 1,2,3,4,5,6

There are 6 gears in gearbox

               1 for simple writing tasks with long battery life.
               2 for browsing most websites with long battery life.
               3 for most 2D games and emulators.
               4 for playing videos and 3D games.
               5 for performance-first tasks.
               6 for max performance, max power (usage).
