Congrats kibergus 8-)

Once again, I will vote for robroyhall, I really appreciate the work he is doing on the Ubuntu images although some of them are experimental (which is great for people like me that like to test things). I would also want to nominate myself again :lol: I did some tutorials such as Minecraft server / Wiimote - any touch surface / Lapdock + U2 / Simple VNC solution. I'm not a very experimented person on Ubuntu but I got many great ideas & I hope that one day I will completely master that microcomputer that is the ODroid U2 :) Meveric is also very helpful on the emulator matter.

For next round I will nominate robroyhall too (I like his profile picture, that's all ;) ) and since qkpham is active, i will nominate him too, beside meveric for his awesome work on emulators. So there are three nominations from my side.

I believe it will be very hard this month. :)

Good Luck to all.

I have also started a project about development&emulation, see this post

I am currently using Google Code but will consider using mdrjr's hosting.

My project has slightly different goals, popularity is not one of them :)
Read more here

I will keep helping people anyway even if it's not voted! Although it would be great if with my release we can attract more developers in the ODROID community

Thank you for the votes! I recommend @meveric, for his work with Mednafen, @Overrsun, as I appreciate what he's doing with the upcoming XBMC 12 port, and @qkpham because of his Touchscreen Anywhere presentation 8-)

With another U2, I will start developing with the IR Chalk as described by @qkpham here: http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=1045&p=6029. I already have the IR chalk and wiimote, and just need a dedicated Odroid for it :D

I've been keeping an eye on the Odroid forums months before I decided to buy the U2. It's clear that the Odroid gets way more support from Hardkernel and the community than the other low cost mobile / mini arm devices that are available. The monthly award is a great idea in so many ways. It obviously helps build a sense of community and commitment from the devs who volunteer their time.

I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, but I thought I say thanks to Hardkernel and everyone else who have built the U2 experience into what it is :)

Don't cited users like robroyhall or Matt because they already have plenty of boards for what i know,but they deserve so much thanks and donations for the help and the work they do.Mdrjr too,being in the staff isn't votable,but thanks so much guys! :D

I think it should go to @Meveric this month for his OpenGL->GLES conversion of many classic games.

IMO, one cannot have too many Odroids! :shock:

I'm speechless! Thanks!

I may still buy one of the finished versions because I think I'm going to end up really wanting the touchscreen for it later. ;) I almost never hook my X2 up to an HDMI screen... I just use the serial console or the LCD panel. Having the +E version will be great for testing the best balance between power usage and performance using different governors and DVFS options!

I can't wait to see what Ovversun does with XBMC and robroyhall does with his OS images!

Guys,the beta edition XU doesn't support mipi Lcd (it hasen't got the connector on the bottom side i think)and Led..but this last thing what it mean exactly?does it haven't the rgb led,but only power led or it's without leds at all?i ask this because in the unboxing video there's the displayport,i read it's discussed to eliminate it and i probably there not will be on final version..then in the video the board showed it's the beta,but i can see both leds and mipi connector

The MIPI connector was populated. But we made a mistake of PCB design and it will be fixed on the mass production version.
There is a RGB tri-color LED. But there is no power LED.
One of RGB is always on in the engineering sample.

If @murrman has not yet received a Forum award, I would like to vote for him. He has not only created some great images for Robotics applications, which is very cool, but he also supports his threads well.

And of course, the MFC and XBMC team 8-)

Yes, memeka and murrman are the forum award in September.
We already ship XU+E engineering sample to memeka because he made significant dev on XBMC things.
We also ship a XU+E to murrman early next week.

This will be good for the XU, since it's new on the market and no one will have had the chance to start working with its new GPIO layout. I think the unobstructed GPIOs of the XU, even with the LCD panel option being attached, make the XU that much better a product than the X2, so having murrman working on the community robotics edition images will be important.

As for memeka: another great choice. Now there are two people who can work on porting the MFC/FIMC work done for the Exynos 4412 over to the Exynos 5410!

Just got my XU today, thanks Hardkernel!

I'm looking forward to putting out an XU robotics image soon...

I nominate bk_XU_AZ.
He apparently got a faulty board (bad connection on HDMI port). He hadn't read the RMA procedure before putting in the order and is now having a hard time paying the shipping back to Korea.
I don't agree with the way he's tried to make out that it's hardkernel's responsibility to pay shipping, but:
    He's been around and contributing to the forums for a while before he got his board
    He'll probably be able to put the prize to better use than most of us
    If he gets an ODROID as a prize, then hk doesn't have to make exceptions to the rules, and everyone saves face to some degree

Yes... it is a brilliant idea. Keep the current policy and price of board..
Also need to ship the hk's HDMI cable too.
Some non-standard(or slightly higher tolerance of dimensions) HDMI cable might break the connector on board.
I think he can contribute his talent to this great forum.

Sorry.. But I don't like the idea! That way we won't be fair on this contest that clearly should award a person work / contribution to the project.

My original post from early this morning (2013-09-28) got deleted: I agree with mjrdr. I appreciate the thought behind it and the thoughfulness, and that someone(s) made the effort to read my posts other than in one forum. I believe, like mdrjr, that whoever wins this should have it because of their contributions to help others and help hardkernel sell their product. I, believe it or not, would love to win this because I was able to contribute to someone else's succcess (I have too much time on my hands already- one of the key reasons I ordered my XU in the first place). ;)

Thanks again to magnum_pi and other kind-hearted people who supported this novel approach. My faith in human nature is nurtured!

Looks like I won't be able to win here. My HDMI video is just barely working (which is even worse than before). If I could never move, or touch my XU it might be okay (without the case)- but I have to touch it to develop anything or even to play with it. I haven't given up trying to get Hardkernel to see the light, though. If it gets too bad I'll borrow Display Port stuff and go headless (which is one direction I was thinking of eventually getting-to as a very capable lightweight server).

Hi,
I wonder if the awards are valid any longer! Nonetheless, I would like to nominate myself :-) My contribution is more in the area of u-boot, which is the bootloader used in the odroid-u2. I have successfully enabled usb in u-boot along with network, storage and keyboard access.

This thread has the details -> viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1980

Thanks
- Suriyan
