  1. Thanks for the info Nico but I can't visualise what you're suggesting
  2. I understood what he meant but how can that be done ?
  3. While I have your ear - can I buy a replacement USB C socket that I could affix to the board and solder the two wires to - that would allow me to still use a case. Hope this makes sense.
  4. That's useful to know Nico thanks - I have it working with just two - how can you feed to two power pins ? I'm using a USB 2 cable which has four wires but I assumed two of them were data only so I only used the red and black - are you saying the data wires can also provide power ? Edit I've just checked and the ones I'm using ( Dupont ) can handle up to three amps
  5. Hi Werner, thanks for this, I've got some cables like that - they will push onto the pins OK but I still need to connect the other ends to my power supply - I find the pin diagram very confusing where are pins 2 and 6 ? do you count from the USB port end or the other ? Edit no worries I found some numbers printed on the board
  6. Hi all, unfortunately the USB power port on my Nanopi M4 V2 has broken off and I can't see a way to reattach it securely - it looks like it's just a push fit onto the board on 4 little tabs no solder involved no wonder it eventually fell off. I've heard that it's possible to power the Nano via the GPIO pins - anyone here done that - I'm not to clued up with all things electrical but I can solder ? I'm thinking I could make a cable to connect to the pins
  7. Hi Werner, I didn't realise I'd posted this as a bug I'll post it elsewhere

  9. I have a few Nanopi m4 v1 and v2 boards most of them use 5.10.16-rockchip64 kernel but one runs 4.4.213-rk3399 because I haven't got around to updating it but all of the boards have the nvme hat and a Samsung 970 SSD fitted.
  10. What SSD are you using? I've been using Samsung 970 EVO for a couple of years without any issues
  11. Ok thanks Werner as I haven't received any replies I guess this is the wrong place to post - I tried because there is such a wealth of good infomation on here - thanks for your time
  12. Hi guys, I'm looking into installing roon server on my NanoPiM4 V2 board - has anyone here done this ? it would be good to see others experiences and possible Howtos uname -a gives me 4.4.213-rk3399 #8 SMP Sat Oct 31 08:18:20 CET 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux thanks guys
  13. Thanks Nico - nice little C program he wrote there
  14. Thanks Nico - what kernel should I use ? also if you can point me to the script that controls the fan it would be great
