Solve the problem

Modify uEnv.txt or boot.scr

setenv bootargs console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200 sunxi_no_mali_mem_reserve sunxi_g2d_mem_reserve=0 sunxi_ve_mem_reserve=0 hdmi.audio=EDID:0 disp.screen0_output_mode=EDID:1280x800p60 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait panic=10 consoleblank=0

To compile boot.cmd to boot.scr

mkimage -C none -A arm -T script -d boot.cmd boot.scr
