Cubietruck is not OpenSource Hardware, I believe.

While the Cubieboard developer "has been working with the sunxi 
community from the start", none of the Cubie boards provide source code 
for designing board wiring: https://linux-sunxi.org/Buying_guide

Avoid USB as power source - it is not reliable.  Use the 5V power plug 
and/or a battery - the board can use both simultanously:
