Variscite is pleased to inform about the Android 10.0.0_1.0.0 v1.7 release for its i.MX8M Mini modules.


Release: q10.0.0_1.0.0-ga_dart-mx8mm_v1.7


  • Filesystem:
    Android 10 (based on official NXP release Q10.0.0_1.0.0, which is based on Android 10.0.0_r14).
  • Linux kernel:
    Variscite q10.0.0_1.0.0-ga_var01 branch (based on official NXP release Q10.0.0_1.0.0 which is based on kernel version 4.19.42).
  • U-Boot:

Noteworthy updates since release 1.5:

Release 1.7

  • Fixed CAN controller pins: the MCP2518FD driver does not use the TX-INT pin, so removed GPIO1_15 from the CAN controller pins

Release 1.6

  • Added support for VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI rev. 1.3 with improved performance of the MCP251XFD CAN controller.
    Note: older VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI revisions need DT adjustments for correct CAN operation – See:
  • CAN: Upgraded the MCP251XFD CAN driver
