    I use free command in my Cubox-i4x4 and this is result:

    You are authenticated
    root@geexbox /root$ free
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:       1793524     647496    1146028          0      11992     137400
    -/+ buffers/cache:     498104    1295420
    Swap:            0          0          0

    If I got it right system see only 1.8Gb ram instead 4.0Gb..

    It is possible to see all 4.0 Gb of ram?

    You reported that before, but unfortunately I don’t have a 4×4 to test. I know that the memory size detection in u-boot is somewhat flaky. Jon N. changed something a while ago but I heard bad things (i.e. some non-booting units) about this change. So I did not include it. However, I’m also not 100% sure if our kernel config has something to do with this. There is one parameter that looks suspicious… Maybe next week I can build a kernel with that param changed, so that we can rule that out.
