  1. I did the coding, host adjustments and test if it works ... help with changing text wherever we are mentioning this, especially in documentation, txt file that comes with an image, at download pages. Thanks.
  2. I say we go and change the recommendation to USBImager and leave Etcher there as "also usable, but includes spyware"
  3. Correct. "Bionic" and "Buster" are 100% identical in the hardware layer - we do that. Ubuntu nor Debian has nothing to do with this. We only use their standard scripts and application, in fact their relation so that the software installation works OOB. This is the cheap part anyone can freely download. Usually memory and eMMC size should not play any role, but I guess this board must then be wired slightly different. Perhaps you can peek into the schematics to find changes/differences.
  4. Welcome to Armbian buster with Linux 4.19.104-mvebu System load: 0.00 0.00 0.00 Up time: 33 days Try to set fixed speed to 1.6 Ghz or 800 Mhz.
  5. If method described here https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/ does not work, you are on your own. We won't ... if you understand facts below: https://github.com/armbian/build#support and This board is labelled as CSC which means: NO OFFICIAL SUPPORT (CSC) are devices which are supported by the 3rd party. We usually don't have hardware samples nor conduct any tests but they might work. There is no support whatsoever.
  6. The image from Armbian is also working (from eMMC with working USB) on a stable build from the download, kernel 5.4.y / current branch. Elsewhere - development branches - you are on your own. We don't care if things are broken there. Its normal that they are. BTW: I upgraded my lime today to 5.6.y and it also works (mainly) fine: http://ix.io/2h0x
  7. For boards that doesn't have HDMI you need to use serial console to login. On this board you have two. 1. Via 3 pin connection https://linux-sunxi.org/UART 2. Via mUSB. Simply power the board via PC USB port and you will get a new serial console to which you connect with a Putty or similar terminal program. That's all.
  8. Desktop Environment. Yes. You need a serial connection and temporal network connection to setup AP armbian-config way. or build a custom image with support for
  9. Perhaps this is the problem? https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/kernel/linux-imx6-current.config#L379
  10. So far there was no intention from anyone to finance R&D and support toward bringing up any imx8 board. Until this remain unchanged, you are on your own.
  11. Change UUID in /boot/armbianEnv.txt and /etc/fstab to the one from a new disk after you transfer your data.
  12. Do we have someone to build this together? I can ask around, just need to know.
  13. Yes, its a known bug. Kernel and boot loader (where is most likely the source of this problem) has little in common with stock support. This work is a port from a person that no longer maintains it. (also there is no maintenance for stock kernel). We tried to port all the way to current kernel, but its insane lots of work / changes. You can still use their stock creations, where this will work, but you will have other problems ... I have to remind you that this is amateur driven open source project. All sources are available which means anyone can fix or hire someone to fix the (any) problem: https://github.com/armbian/build#support My estimation is that it can easily costs few days - if you know where to look for. Few days of R&D costs more than all end users donations per year.
  14. Power the board with monitor (or serial console) attached to it and it will tell you version in the first line(s).
  15. - your u-boot version - armbianmonitor -u
