With 8.0 there are too many discrepancies (hence my questions) to sort out for the beginner I am what the source of the problem is (for example, I used a a10-olinuxino-lime u-boot---because it was what was in pkgsrc and I thought that with compatibility it could load on the a20---and it didn't boot---and then the question was: is it a hardware, a firmware or a software problem? Did I already fry the board? Does the missing lime2 dtb cause the problem? Etc.).

NetBSD's sunxi port was transitioning from static config to dts when 8.0 as branched. Unfortunately, the A20 SoC stuff didn't get moved over in time. To use a dtb, you'll need to run -current with the GENERIC kernel.
