I salvaged a tft screen from an android tablet, but I removed the tft part. Now I want to install it on my tinker board s. 


Do I have to pass by the CPIO since the connector fits in the place where it the slot?
Check the TB schematics Wink
I'll try to find the part schematic

Found the manufacturer. Didn't find the schematic. Can you help me with that? kingdisplay com/en/showproducts532

I'm using the latest armbian os
I meant to look for the tinkerboard schematics which you'll find my mentions on the forum.
Your display seems to be hardy to find details.

I am quite new to this so the schematic are like in chinese for me. I know the screen got a mipi (but not the 30 pin they say)

Since I use armbian should I add drivers or such ?
Well, it won't achievable if you don't have such kind of knowledge. Easier to damage than get thing working.

So I just have to learn quick then. lol any pointers to help me ?

So I found the mipi DSI schematic on the file. Now I need to find the ACER schematic for that specific tablet and how they modified the screen.
