You'll need to dd out a u-boot like all other arm devices. I suggest
you do this with arm-image-installer, but you'll need to create a
symlink for the device

on the host :

"sudo dnf install fedora-arm-installer"
"sudo ln -s /usr/share/arm-image-installer/socs.d/AllWinner
"sudo arm-image-installer
--target=Cubietruck_plus --media=<INSERT SD CARD DEV NAME>"

I have no idea if the display outputs, if you have a serial console
add --console to the end of the arm-image-installer commands.

PS please keep conversation on list
arm mailing list
