  1. Today
  2. I'm new here and I haven't spent the hours here like others have to see that @balbes150 has already said in some post here of the thousands posted to know he won't support the x905x3 SoC. That being said I am more then willing to take a fair stab at helping on getting proper support for it. I am no newbie at coding and anyone is more then welcome to google my name to just see my background in code languages, Scott Grayban. Is there a common thread to help newcomers to the android compiling kernel modules here?
  3. [DELETE ME] I used a 4b image, my bad....
  4. Yesterday
  5. QUESTION: I downloaded the BUSTER image (19.11.6 / 5.4.8) .img. In my .GNUPG directory, there is only an empty 'private keys' directory. Is this supposed to be like this or should there be 2 'text' documents next to the 'private keys' directory? One of my former buster downloads from a year ago or so, I know there were 2 simple text documents in the .gnupg directory. I am trying to learn how to send an encrypted message using gpg, but haven't been successful, yet. I was thinking that maybe there is a problem with my .gnupg directory and this is why I'm running into a snag with it. Thank you.
  6. Good afternoon, I have been trying to find a solution without success and am hoping someone can assist. I have installed armbian on an x96 s905x box with the proper uboot and the .dtb built for the 905x and have installed to emmc. Everything works great except my wifi. On pervious builds modprobe wifi_dummy solved this but with current build it appears to no longer be available. I attempted to build a driver but keep getting make error 2. Any assistance would be a huge help. Thanks
  7. You can use any system, this is your own business, but I delete all messages where links are given or elements are discussed (what and how it works etc) on corelec. I have good reasons for this, but I won't explain anything to anyone. If you are not satisfied with this, you not use ArmbianTV. p/s/ I think this discussion can be closed.
  8. OK, I will try a shorter post this time. I have got Armbian 20.09 (buster_current_5.8.10) up and running on the Ugoos Am6 plus (the newer version with s922xj SoC) using the supplied dtb for Am6. Everything seems to work fine (ethernet, usb, graphics, sound, video playback (see below) and Bluetooth) except wifi. The clock speed cannot be set (in arbian-config) above 1992MHz however, and I have a similar problem with the picture (thin colored vertical lines at the borders of the display) as tonny above. dmesg_UgoosAm6plus_Android_edit.txt.gz dmesg_UgoosAm6plus_Armbian_20.09_5.8.10-arm-64.txt.gz
  9. The one saying this is the dumbest person on earth. If he is lazy then I'm santa Indeed, since our Russian isn't good enough.
  10. English is probably not balbes150 native language and he is using a translator. "Hijacked" would be a better translation, your post is off topic in that thread.
  11. I need to correct my last statement, as the post I was referring to was not deleted: "is to lazy to help any of us with the same problem ". But I will still say that balbes150 is offended by language like this. Everyone needs to realize that Armbian on Android TV boxes (especially balbes150's builds) are not supported by the Armbian project. And particularly the s905x3 cpu isn't supported by even balbes150. Posting in these forums demands for support or calling others lazy for not providing support isn't in the spirit of the armbian community. We all wish there was better support of mainline linux on all of these boxes, but without active support by the device manufacturers that isn't a reality. The volunteers here do the best they can (and they do some amazing things when you think about it).
  12. This has been discussed many times in different threads. @balbes150 has chosen not to support this (and likely future Amlogic) chips due to the fact that Amlogic doesn't provide support and access to source code for their chips to the community. He finds that his limited time is better spent on cpus from manufacturers that are more willing to work with the community. It is his decision on how he contributes his time as a volunteer. Anyone else is more than welcome to pick up the ball and volunteer to better support the s905x3. I will also say that balbes150 also does take offense when being called lazy when he doesn't work on some particular user's issue, as was insinuated in a recent post that was deleted. (I'm not sure that post was the one being mentioned in this thread, but it was a post in the x905x3 thread that I read earlier today that is now no longer there).
  13. Maybe you can find this here. https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/ROCK64#SoC_and_Memory_Specification Look what board is supported and then do your homework. All info is to be found on the internet.
  14. I think it's @balbes150 that is missing something. He doesn't have a S905X3 so doesn't support it. There are seperate threads for this model. We should look into Balbes getting a S905X3 so he would be able/willing to support it. @balbes150 you may have one next week if you want so, it is a good SoC. Tho I don't like that sd isn't priority and it doesn't have gigabit ethernet. At least it works at 1.9Ghz without overheating much.
  15. Igor, I think you misunderstood what I was asking. I wasn't asking you to support hardware that we are making. I was asking which BT and Wifi chips that hardware that you are already supporting is using. We would like to use BT and Wifi chips that are already supported by Armbian, so that we don't need to add new drivers.
  16. Sorry I don't fully understand the coding above, but I can see you were using shasum to check the archive images. Thanks. I checked my archive download and it checked out! QUESTION: I downloaded the BUSTER image (19.11.6 / 5.4.8) .img. In my .GNUPG directory, there is only an empty 'private keys' directory. Is this supposed to be like this or should there be 2 'text' documents next to the 'private keys' directory? One of my former buster downloads from a year ago or so, I know there were 2 simple text documents in the .gnupg directory. I am trying to learn how to send an encrypted message using gpg, but haven't been successful, yet.

  17. Just tried https://archive.armbian.com/orangepi-r1/archive/Armbian_19.11.4_Orangepi-r1_bionic_current_5.4.6.7z but still Wi-Fi issue persisted. If someone can get his hand on an Orangepir1 and try it.. if it is not an OS issue then it could be my SBC who suffers from a defect?
  18. Pirated? I am sure I am missing some thing here. It would be kind of good to be enlightened or informed here so this is not repeated unknowingly. Thought Linux was in spirit based on GPL or MIT license. Was not aware the dtb definitions could be proprietary. I see most of them in https://github.com/torvalds/linux/tree/master/arch/arm64/boot/dts/amlogic May be I am truly missing something! -R
  19. ...that isnt well described. PLZ HELP!!111einself
  20. Some information about new versions could be put below
  21. The simplest thing is to try to take a working u-boot from any working Armbian image (for details on how to pull out u-boot and use it in another image, see this topic earlier). Starting from USB is possible, but with the described two options. I think the TWRP startup comes from u-boot which is in eMMC (in service mode). To completely clean eMMC, you can use the USB Burn Tool (with certain options, the firmware file is not needed). This is cheating. H6 can't work with 4 GB , this is a hardware limitation. See the topic in the section Allwinner H6, where the developers describe this problem.
