    Orangepi 3 h6 allwiner chip

    yeah, less usbs would help with cost. maybe 2x usb2 (use one from usb otg) and 1x usb3 (no need for a hub). Id reserve emmc option for PC3+ model.

    Still waiting for the cheaper PC3 variant, but this is one step closer. Nixing pcie, emmc, wifi and usb port (and maybe x2 usb2 / x2 usb3 setup) together with simpler pcb i can see this at ~25$ or perhaps even 20$. That would make it an awesome ultra budget NAS setup, capable of gigabit speeds. Obviously, once H6 support is ironed out.

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    @gnthibault I think this is kernel related. Since you had the box booting in older 3.14 kernel, i'm gonna assume the new 4.x kernel does not have the appropriate mmc/nand driver to boot from internal. Personally, i've given up on armbian for this box and went with lakka instead. Since i'm only using this box for retro gaming, it's fine and nand install works flawlessly. I just wish lakka past version 2.0 would actually work properly.

    Is there an armbian based retroarch distro ? Im currently using lakka on my s905 devices, but its pretty poor past version 2.1. similar to retrorangepi

    Thats a very good question. I though NAND and eMMC are treated the same, no ?

    Funny enough, when i have sd card installed (with armbian) it boots fine and i can see and edit emmc partitions

    Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

    Does eMMC booting work on latest versions ? I tried Armbian_5.67_Aml-s9xxx_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.19.7_desktop_20181228 on my Sunvell T95X and while sd boot works flawlessly, when installing to nand using /root/install.sh script it finished installing successfully, but after i reboot the device, it does not boot (stuck at amlogic logo). Am i doing something wrong here ? Prior to installing armbian i reflashed the device with stock firmware and activated multiboot using aml_autoscript zip.

    NAND access on S905 devices

    My goal is to have a retro setup on my tanix tx3 mini running from NAND only.

    NAND access on S905 devices

    Is there any way to flash armbian (or other linux distros) to Nand flash ? all i see is option to boot from SD. While this is fine, nand flash seems to be faster than most sd cards + its wasted otherwise.

    Lichee Pi zero

    for a cheap device it has the benefit of lower power and built in ram

    Lichee Pi zero

    350 would like to speak with you

    Lichee Pi zero

    It would be interesting to see someone try. I'm sure it can be done, if raspberry is doing it with 512MB of ram (probably the bulk of the BOM).

    Lichee Pi zero

    Someone needs to make a V3s board targeting rpi zero formfactor and price (5$). That might just make sense.
  14. Yep, only H6, H5, H3 and older chipsets dont support 10bit
