Apologies if this email is incorrectly formatted, I'm using webmail. Below
is the script I used to try and get the a10 olinuxino lime to work. It was
run from a debian-based machine. I could try retest, but I am
[non-literally] flooded at the moment. I may retest if I get the time.

if ! [ -b "$1" ]; then
echo "Be careful ..."
echo "Run as root and enter the device block as the first argument, good
exit 1

##Install for creating boot.scr
apt-get install u-boot-tools

mkdir workingDir
cd workingDir

##Download the stuff
wget https://git.parabola.nu/abslibre.git/plain/libre/uboot-sunxi/boot.txt

##Fresh the sdcard
shred "$1"

##Do the stuff
tar -xf uboot4extlinux*
#we do this in two separate steps ... create the partition table ...
printf "o\nw\n" | fdisk --wipe always "$1"
#... and create the partition
printf "n\np\n1\n\n\nw\n" | fdisk --wipe always "$1"
mkfs.ext4 "${1}1"
mkdir mnt
mount "${1}1" mnt
tar -xf parabola-*-armv7h-*.tar.gz -C mnt
cp -a boot/extlinux mnt/boot/
cp -a boot/u-boot mnt/boot/
dd if=boot/u-boot/images/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=${1} bs=1024 seek=8
cp -a boot.txt mnt/boot
sed -i "s#console=\${console}#console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0
hdmi.audio=EDID:0 disp.screen0_output_mode=EDID:1280x720p60#g"
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T script -C none -n "U-Boot boot script" -d
mnt/boot/boot.txt boot.scr
cp -a boot.scr mnt/boot
umount mnt
