  1. What's new in this club
  2. @jock Short status report on my case: 1. The only package - sources + headers - I've been able to obtain was for 5.9.10-rk322x on top of Armbian_20.11.0-trunk_Rk322x-box_buster_current_5.8.12_minimal.img.xz image (your build). 2 Prepared the build environment by: - copying the /boot/config-5.9.10-rk322x to .config - copying the Module.symvers to source build folder - make oldconfig - make menuconfig - selecting/enabling (*) the respective PANASONIC MN88472 driver - make scripts - make prepare - make modules_prepare
  3. @zero48 as already @Maker39 said you don 't need nothing to start from sd but the sd itself Mee too I always use win32disk imager so first extract the content of the xz file and burn it with win32imager
  4. Try Rufus https://rufus.ie/ I always keep "Rufus", "Win32 Disk Imager" and "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" handy for recording images. And you no need press "magic button" for boot with Multitool .
  5. Once I flash the imagetool with balena I cant read it anymore, I have tried with 2 other SD (16B and 4GB) cards and even an USB (16GB) . In another hands I think the boot process of the box is affected. The only thing I get is this when I press the Hidden button https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Skrgy_xKlxgWpjPLNhPxhz-ZASmFdeli/view?usp=sharing I got 4 units from a friend all same model , same behavior. I do thanks you guys for the support , I'll get it eventually. Any SD formating tool for windows besides the WIN10 format tool ? Zero48
  6. I was just testing on my spare tx3 mini box, and the only time I see the android recovery screen is if I don't have an SD card (or not a valid sd card) installed. So my educated guess is that there is something wrong with your sd card or how you are burning the image to the sd card. I've never used balenaEtcher so I can't provide any guidance on what might be wrong there. If you have access to a Mac or Linux box where you can connect the sd card to, you might want to try creating the sd card from the command line using dd (sudo dd if=/location/of/armbian/image of=/dev/locationofsdcard ...,
  7. Uhm can't really say what is the GPIO enabling power to the chip from that debug info. Often gpios are not registered on those maps and it is difficult to understand what is where. BTW, it is very likely that gpio2-29 is our subject (I see that in the dmesg of your first post too). On regular boxes it is gpio2-26 and on boards with esp8089 it is gpio2-27, so the "band" is that one. This is the patch for the device tree overlays, you may create a new device tree overlay on the base of the esp8089 one, compile using dtc and apply it. You may also try to change ACTIVE_LOW with AC
  8. That's very strange, because the multitool image is made on purpose to work without issues with Windows too: that's the main reason why there is the FAT partition
  9. You were both wrong and right. The build I pointed you to is the last build that supports Amlogic cpus. As of now there is no one supporting amlogic cpus for android tv boxes going forward in the armbian tv community. So if you get your box working as you need it, there will be no future kernel updates for you as it currently stands, unless some other developers pick up from where balbes150 left off.
  10. Since I don't have a box that is anything like what you have, I can't provide any more than generic advice. But given what you are reporting, your problem lies in there not being a compatible dtb for your hardware. The dtb file is what maps the hardware to the linux kernel. In searching the forums I ran across the following post that may be of help to you. While it was for a 5.3 kernel, that is recent enough that it may still be relevant.
  11. You Rock !! Thanks for the info I'll get a linux desktop running ASP so I can complete this. For teh moment I'm using windows and Once I flash the imagetool , I cant read the SD in order to add the image. (Unless I'm mistaken something). Zero48
  12. @megaduo have you original firmware with wifi surely working? If yes can you extract the original dtb ?
  13. I have got some gpio configuration from offical firmware,perhaps wlan sdio power is controled by gpio-93(gpio2-29) (wlan_default_wlan_po) or sdio-pwren pin 30 (gpio0-30)?
  14. @zero48 Your board is one on which we worked a lot, is well known and totally and well supported in armbian. It has NAND so pay attention : you have to use stePnand for internal installation ; it has DDR3 upvto 768 MHz so is one of my favourites for his speed You will be very satisfied of it !!! Thank you for photos, cheers EDIT: Those lovely China producers.. It should be a 3228 with one or two giga of ram. Look at what they say .. 4 GB ram...... Anyway you can check those infos with the efuse and with " free" command.
  15. I have the same box. The eMMC is also burned Can you help me and tell me how to boot? I tried it all
  16. Thanks SteeMan. Honestly I downloaded 20.11 stuff but couldn't find any amlogics stuff. I had read earlier in the blog the ongoing troubles with amlogics as a manufacturer so somehow I decided it wasn't supported anymore?? But obviously I am just WRONG. I am new here so I only get one post/day so - here is what I learned today. So I downloaded Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_bullseye_current_5.9.0_desktop and have Bullseye booting just fine. Running through all the dtb files. But still having the same problem - it is not recognizing my ethernet or wifi card.
  17. My bad !! You may try now Zero48
  18. @zero48 Sure follow jock's suggestions and you will hit the goal. Your photos are on drive but request authorization for watching maybe better if you can make them public even to non Gmail users . Thise photos could help someone else
  19. I already copy u-boot-s905x-s912 to u-boot.ext My android box boots successfully to android TV screen without SDCard I've never tried other software before Tks
  20. Hi, It is a 4GB SD class10 . I'll Try Jock suggestion . I think I'll get a Linux machine since windows wont Show me anything after imagetool is flashed with Balena . Thanks
  21. Hello, I'll try multitool as you noted . Here attached some pictures of the BOX. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MkpOaZXiBpVUMAM3mndmLrywDW7IF4Fs/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1czIEeoHD6nMQh0cBsVrLUVhNyVHc0FMI/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fymh5bg9a7OVp-ARYJJO3lxXmrwT9cQu/view?usp=sharing Thanks very much for your Tip ... I'll Test and Post Zero48
  22. Did you also copy u-boot-s905x-s912 to u-boot.ext? . Also, does the box boot to android successfully without the sdcard installed? Also, have you tried other software like coreelec on this box?
  23. There is a shortcut actually. If you are using a stable image provided by armbian servers you can install the kernel sources and kernel headers for rk322x-current via apt-get. Also the kernel configuration is available in /boot so you can use that one as .config file. With this combo you should be able to compile the kernel directly on the device, but you should be also able to compile just the kernel module you need instead of compiling the whole kernel following any recent ubuntu kernel/kernel module compilation guide. I never tried the procedure above, but it should wo
  24. Thank you for your reply! Actually, with this image: Armbian_20.11.0-trunk_Rk322x-box_focal_current_5.8.9_desktop.img.xz the MXQ Pro 4K box (RK3228A) also works stable enough. However, by some sort of a comparative analysis, I've reached to a conclusion that the demodulator module - mn88472.ko - driver is missing from the kernel. The tuner is discovered: but half of the necessary FW is being loaded, only dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw for the USB interface. The demodulator FW - dvb-demod-mn88472-02.fw - presumably, requested by mn88472
  25. Hi SteeMan Thank you for your very detail guideline. I follow but still get a problem I download image, flash to SDCard via balenaEtcher, edit /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf with correct DTB parameter I push SDCard into, hold reset and power on, but my TX3 mini always shows the screen as in picture https://ibb.co/12JtfJS, as far as I understand it is recovery screen It can't boot into armbian in SDCard Best regards
  26. Yes! That link is exactly what you need to start from scratch. Armbian will download all the necessary things and will do all the compilation and packaging for you. The first two paragraphs (ie: What do I need? and Native and VirtualBox environments) are enough to get the job done, but don't forget to ask the interactive script to show you the kernel configuration to make changes and add your drivers. You can then choose to either compile a full image distribution or just u-boot and kernel packages. Creating the full image distribution is easier but takes a bit lon
