    Armbian for TV box rk3328

    No such message after modprobe. Will play around with the dtb more. I think the 8723bs is also in MVR9 which is working as balbes150 has mentioned. So most likely the problem is with the dtb for the A5XMAX. Must be something other than the wlan sections. Maybe a power regulator or gpio setting is wrong....

    Tried it, does not work. The android 8723bs.ko does not modprobe due to exec format error. Looks like there is a magic number check for the modules to make sure they are built for the correct kernel. Doing a modprobe --force to get around, reports all kinds of unknown symbols from the module. Adding just the fw files and the config with the old 8723bs.ko does not work either (modprobes...but no wifi).

    What do the firmware files for wifi look like? And how does the module know where to pick it up from? My wifi chip is rtl8723bs. I can modprobe 8723bs and see it in lsmod but wifi does not work. I looked for 8723bs files and I see % find /lib/firmware -name "*8723bs*" /lib/firmware/rkwifi/wifi_efuse_8723bs-vq0.map /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723bs_bt.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723bs_ap_wowlan.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723bs_nic.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723bs_wowlan.bin % find /lib/modules -name "*8723bs*" /lib/modules/4.4.143-rk3328-tv/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rockchip_wlan/rtl8723bs /lib/modules/4.4.143-rk3328-tv/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rockchip_wlan/rtl8723bs/8723bs.ko On my desktop is a mountpoint /vendor which is on /dev/mmcblk2p17 . Is this the android directory? In there I see % sudo find . -name "*8723bs*" ./etc/firmware/wifi_efuse_8723bs-vq0.map ./etc/firmware/rtl8723bs_VQ0_fw ./etc/firmware/rtl8723bs_config ./etc/firmware/rtl8723bs_fw ./etc/firmware/rtl8723bs_VQ0_config ./lib/modules/8723bs.ko The 8723bs.ko is different (in size) than the earlier 8723bs.ko (modprobe probably loads the earlier /lib/modules/..../8723bs.ko) Do I need to copy the vendor 8723bs* files into the SD armbian dirs? Where? I don't see any firmware dir in /etc of the armbian install. @balbes150 talked about some firmware parameters. Where should they be set?

    Does the dtb for MX10 make the builtin (evil) wifi/bt work? I could not figure out for sure from the puppyrus translation Is the MX10 board same as the A5X Max ? Great work !!

    I have a A5XMAX box running from SD card the Armbian_5.67_Rk3328-tv_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.154_desktop_20181227.img.xz and I have been experimenting with the wireless-wlan section in the rk3328-evb.dtb trying to get the builtin wifi to work. The box has the rtl8723bs wifi chipset. If I do a "sudo modprobe 8723bs" I see in dmesg [ 726.221116] ======================================================= [ 726.221122] ==== Launching Wi-Fi driver! (Powered by Rockchip) ==== [ 726.221126] ======================================================= [ 726.221132] Realtek 8723BS SDIO WiFi driver (Powered by Rockchip,Ver v5.2.17.1_26955.20180307_COEX20180201-6f52) init.

The wifi turn on power -1 does not look good. Any idea as to what is wrong? Does the problem look like it is in dtb or firmware settings or driver?

    I tried out an old usb wifi dongle I had, and a really old BT dongle I had and both of them worked on my A5x Max box with Armbian_5.67_Rk3328-tv_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.143_desktop_20181203.img + rk3328-evb.dtb They worked out of the box, no mods required. The wifi dongle (from ebay) Wifi For Raspberry Pi- 802.11n USB 150M Wireless RTL8188CUS BT dongle Trendnet TBW-101UB (really old version) Another newer ASUS BT dongle did not work. If anyone knows of any newer BT dongles working let me know. The other thing I noticed, is that if I plugin in a USB 3.0 thumb drive in the USB3.0 port, my wireless keyboard starts lagging/stopping. Has anyone seen this? Plugging the 3.0 drive in the USB 2.0 ports does not cause any problems. I think GPU is still not working though.

    Does the img in your 1203 release https://yadi.sk/d/DSO6euzB3ahemo/ARMBIAN/5.67/20181203/Armbian_5.67_Rk3328-tv_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.143_desktop_20181203.img have WIFI kernel support? Or is the one in the 1117 WIFI directory more appropriate. https://yadi.sk/d/DSO6euzB3ahemo/ARMBIAN/5.67/20181117/WiFi On the MVR9 are you able to get WIFI to work on bionic ? Or is it too ambitious to try to get Wifi working on a new box :) thanks

    Great thread !! I have armbian running from SD card on a A5X MAX with the Armbian_5.67_Rk3328-tv_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.143_desktop_20181203.img + rk3328-evb.dtb Ethernet and sound working, but not wifi or BT. @balbes150 To get the wifi to work, do I need a different version of the img? Or can it work with the image I have with the right dtb file? I remember there was WIFI versions of the img in the past. And, can I just change the dtb file and reboot? Or do I have to get a fresh img and repeat step 2 ? I see some people have extracted the dtb (ftd) file from Android. Has anyone done this on the A5X Max boxes? Any instructions on how to do this? I don't have root on the box.

    Good to hear !! Are you using the img in https://yadi.sk/d/DSO6euzB3ahemo/ARMBIAN/5.67/20181117 I notice there another Armbian_5.67_Rk3328-tv_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.143_desktop_20181117 in the WIFI folder at the above site. Are you using that or the one in the main folder. I am new to all this ... Do each of the different rk3328 boxes need slightly different wifi drivers? Does the install process get the driver from the Android installed on the box, or does it have a fixed wifi driver from the box the OP released the image for. thanks

    Hi! I have a rk3328 box on the way, and was looking at this thread to see if I can get armbian running on it. The only difference I see from others is that my box will have Android 9.0 instead of 8.1 Will that make any difference in the install process? Will it still work? The box is https://www.geekbuying.com/item/A5X-MAX-RK3328-4GB-32GB-TV-Box-388745.html thanks
