    Thank you, very usefull, I guess its safe to test, when doing nothing. But its a risk when both devices are on high load.

    You can measure the power consumption and see if you are at risk. I can try to see if I can find my clamp ampere meter, I got it around somewhere, maybe I can make some measurement.
    If you are at risk, the processor cores draws a lot more when at high frequency, maybe you could implement a more restrictive throttling.

    I measured the consumption of the OP4 board:
    1.Loading the operating system
     
    2.The system is loaded, there is no application load
     
    3. 7z benchmark. Maximum CPU load.

    All working now! it was a bad flashing. I flashed using dd rather than etcher. Also others that had problems used etcher... maybe that was the reason... I used a command like:
    dd if=os.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4M status=progress oflag=sync @Belgrado@Pongotto @gounthar

    I am (very) sceptical about when its about radio. Any kind. Perhaps its another marketing idea - if it runs on Linux = "opensource"?
     
     
    Patches are out there and I was already trying to bring this feature to the 5.4.y ...

    @_ppiotr3k Did you by any chance use the same SD card for Armbian that was used for Xunlong image before?
     
    If so, try wiping either all of the SD card (it will take a long time) or the last 33 sectors of it before writing Armbian's image there.
    This will clear the recovery GPT partition table from the end of SD card.
    This partition table makes Rockchip's loader trying to use GPT layout for booting - which we don't use. 
    root@xyz:~# fdisk -l /dev/mmcblk1 | head -1 Disk /dev/mmcblk1: 29.7 GiB, 31914983424 bytes, 62333952 sectors # 62333952 - 33 = 62333919 root@xyz:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk1 seek=62333919 I think a better solution is to switch u-boot's preloader to SPL/TPL from DDR/miniloader but I want to test how it behaves with Xunlong's original image in eMMC.
    The precompiled buster minimal image (kernel 5.4.16), which does not require above steps, is here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ScMJN0VLIkuPjgnqhudK0egH42_cP1w3

    Yes, it works there  I thought it will be the other way around. 5.4.y looks stable to me ... but I do use a heatsink and a good power source. http://ix.io/28ro

    I used buster for my preliminary support testing.
    Keep in mind that the board support is in beta or even alpha state right now.

    for those interested in a board bring up
     
    the kernel DT can be found here (it's the commit bringing the board up, so rk3399-orangepi.dts is the most important here):
    https://github.com/orangepi-xunlong/OrangePiRK3399_kernel/commit/ca6af5e3a951938bcd2516ed410e1a3173d640d2#diff-a6cab00e04d1f9f954107a5555ea160a
     
    this is (likely) the used defconfig for u-boot:
    https://github.com/orangepi-xunlong/OrangePiRK3399_uboot/blob/6f4a1947dd2e648c36d53dd1410679865c6b257b/configs/rk3399_defconfig
     
    this might also be of interest for the first stage loaders:
    https://github.com/orangepi-xunlong/OrangePiRK3399_scripts/blob/a62950cafa093437f55eb0ed5a846963edbf006f/lib/compilation.sh#L40-L45
     
    it seems xunlong did quite some cleaning of their sources to build proper images.

    It's really hard to do in a power efficient manner - there are SDR's that can do all the right waveforms, the signalling, etc, but most of this is on an FPGA - the UMTS and LTE protocols are fairly complex, much more so that 802.11 wifi, and we know how hard that can be.
     
    It's also a massive minefield of patents, which makes GPL are very real challenge.

    cause Rockchips BSP kernel is a 4.4. All our legacy images for rk3288, (3308), 3328 and 3399 boards are based on this kernel (or a fork of it).
     
    if this 'somehow' doesn't end here: https://github.com/armbian/build/pulls it's IMO not much of a difference to have "armbian" or the vendors provided image. It shouldn't be as hard to get it there (at least as csc supported device). The wifi module is the same as for the RockPi (next to USB3 yay) and it's also LPDDR4 (also RockPi 4b). As a first try I would just (try to) boot an Armbian image for the RockPi (this may also answer your questions for a "generic image", I assume you look for a starting point to get your new toy working). Then create a new boardconfig patch in the (hopefully) proper DT information you get somewhere from the BSP package of this board and pray it compiles without issues (even sound should be here: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/5c9a7ee7fb9c0d89c923b5690383f6d5006efed4/config/kernel/linux-rockchip64-legacy.config#L4303 at least for the 4.4 kernel). Send this back to Armbian and you'll likely end with (at least) csc support for this board. Except the NPU there's not much 'special' on this board so I don't see a reason why support for it shouldn't be straight forward (except the DTS file is such a mess that it doesn't work properly).
     
    IMO the most interesting parts for this board are:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000055556030.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.1.507153c3gsSLM0

    camera & 10.1 inch display (both MIPI 4 lane) so that someone finally could work on camera and display support for those boards (I hope/think that they are pincompatible to all RK3399 camera/display outs with 4 lane mipi, e.g. nanopi and ROCKPro64). Actually a part of all RK3399 boards where nobody cared about it until yet.

    Free software is software you may use, share, modify and redistribute.
     
    Replicant has decided to investigate if they can port a replicant version to the phone. Replicant has said, they know
    of no phone better about free software. All modems on the market require non free software. Same about
    the modem in the pinephone.
     
    A downside of the pinephone is the wifi card, 8723cs, because it requires non free firmware software. On
    pinephone's irc I was told, they went for the 8723cs because pinephone could find no viable free software supported sdio wifi
    card.
     
    Is it the case, there is no free software supported sdio wifi card for sale?
     
    On pinephone's irc the ESP8089, ESP8266, ESP32 chips were mentioned. Are they computers like
    the ardinos? If they are, I expect they are not usable in a phone, because of power consumption.
    The chips were mentioned because it should not be inherently impossible to write free
    software drivers and firmware for them. Do you know about forums for such matters? Thanks.

    Mali is only 3D accelerator, so I'm not sure what you mean exactly by that. If you mean HDMI output, that's entirely different thing, but it works. However, without any kind of acceleration.
     
    Mali T720 is not supported at all at this moment, however it will be soon.

    The RTD1395 is equipped with a high-performance quad-core CPU,ARM cortex-A53,with 512K L2 cache embedded. the RTD1395 also integrates and efficient ARM Mali-470 Graphic Processing Unit(GPU) to accelerate 2D and 3D graphics processing. For acceleration of this OSD and 2K user interface,the built-in Streaming Engine of the RTD1395 provides commonly used drawing functions.the CPU is dedicated to applications ,while most of the functions of the RTD1395 is dedicated to manipulating,decoding video streams in vaious formats.e.g. decoding 4K2K H.265,Full HD MPEG1/2/4/H.264/H.264 MVC,AVC/VC-1,VP8,VP9,AVS,AVS plus,HD JPEG,etc. Video DSP can also handle encoding of up to Full HD with H.264 format.Video decoding and encoding can run simultaneously.
