    Tomvictor reacted to Igor in h3disp: change display settings on H3 devices   
    You can open an issue about adding new video mode, but since issue is already open (from March 10th), you can add short comment there and wait until it's solved. Topic in general talks about our utility to set available video modes. 1440x 2560 is not available and has to be added on a kernel level.
     
    For faster way, you will need to do this on your own, hire someone or simply accept consequences of a wrong business decision.

    Tomvictor reacted to tkaiser in h3disp: change display settings on H3 devices   
    We included in Armbian a small utility called h3disp. If called without arguments it displays just a usage information:
    tk@orangepipc:~$ sudo h3disp  [sudo] password for tk:  Usage: h3disp [-h/-H] -m [video mode] [-d] [-c [0-2]] ############################################################################  This is a tool to set the display resolution of your Orange  Pi by patching script.bin.  In case you use an HDMI-to-DVI converter please use the -d switch.  The resolution can be set using the -m switch. The following resolutions  are currently supported:     480i use "-m 480i" or "-m 0"     576i use "-m 576i" or "-m 1"     480p use "-m 480p" or "-m 2"     576p use "-m 576p" or "-m 3"     720p50 use "-m 720p50" or "-m 4"     720p60 use "-m 720p60" or "-m 5"     1080i50 use "-m 1080i50" or "-m 6"     1080i60 use "-m 1080i60" or "-m 7"     1080p24 use "-m 1080p24" or "-m 8"     1080p50 use "-m 1080p50" or "-m 9"     1080p60 use "-m 1080p60" or "-m 10"  Two examples:     'h3disp -m 1080p60 -d' (1920x1080@60Hz DVI)     'h3disp -m 720i' (1280x720@30Hz HDMI)  You can also specify the colour-range for your HDMI-display with the -c switch.  The following values for -c are currently supported:     0 -- RGB range 16-255 (Default, use "-c 0")     1 -- RGB range 0-255 (Full range, use "-c 1")     2 -- RGB range 16-235 (Limited video, "-c 2") ############################################################################ This tool tries to patch script.bin (adjusts the display settings there) and requires a reboot afterwards. While it is not useable with vanilla kernel (script.bin doesn't play any role there and a display driver is also still not ready) it might be also useful for H3 users that rely on other OS images (Debian/Ubuntu based from Xunlong or from loboris). Our h3disp tries also to patch script.bin there with your settings so it should be useful for non Armbian users too 
     
    BTW: It could also be used with Debian based Linux OS images for A83T/H8 (Cubietruck Plus, pcDuino8 Uno or Banana Pi M3) but unfortunately these vendors fail to provide OS images that use a patched u-boot version that could deal with script.bin. At least 'Team BPi' got it finally after being told since months where/how to copy&paste this stuff but since they only update their sources and provide no updates for their OS images, Banana Pi M3 customers are still lost
     
    In case you're an Android user you'll have to go the extra mile since the Android OS image for H3 Orange Pi's doesn't support script.bin. You could apply the changes h3disp offers to one of our provided fex files but have then to overwrite a few sectors on your SD card to get this stuff working (by choosing our fex files you could also 'patch' the Android image to run better on the Orange Pi One or get all USB ports and Ethernet on the other models and improve realiability and decrease SoC temperature)
