    piter75 got a reaction from baptiste in RockPro64 kernel v5.4 doesn't boot on eMMC (while kernel v4.4 does)   
    This is a known issue with rk3399 boards using mainline kernel and it was mitigated for all other boards using mainline u-boot some time ago.
    RockPro64 is the last one that is uses u-boot v2017.09 but I am planning to switch it to mainline for the next Armbian release (v20.11).
    For now you need to either be patient or stay with 4.4.y.

    Run these two commands:
    sudo cp /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac4356-sdio{-nanopi-m4v2,}.bin sudo cp /lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac4356-sdio{-nanopi-m4v2,}.txt Reboot and verify if your wlan0 interface is working.

    This happens after upgrading armbian-firmware package and it is already fixed in master and will be part of v20.08 release.

    piter75 got a reaction from haajee in Orange Pi 4 Kernel 5.x.x rt5651 sound and bluetooth fixed   
    Did you change the mac address of the interface by using `btmgmt` according to this message?
    Without it the device is using default mac address from firmware and thus is set to `DOWN RAW` status.

    I advise sticking with the legacy kernel until the stability issues with the current kernels (specific to the NanoPi M4 V2) have been resolved.

    piter75 got a reaction from haajee in Orange Pi 4 Kernel 5.x.x rt5651 sound and bluetooth fixed   
    It is fixed for some time already. It's just that there were no releases built for the board in the meantime.
    It is however part of v20.05.1 - after you upgrade you should not see it disappearing again.

    piter75 got a reaction from Werner in kernel 5.4.43 Rock PI 4B not starting   
    u-boot does not recognise the storage and tries to boot from network.
    I see that you have built yourself an image yesterday but it is probably using some old Armbian build repository revision as it still uses v2017.09 u-boot which is switched to mainline for RockPi 4 in current sources.
     
    Did you also try to use the ready made v20.05.1 images from https://dl.armbian.com/rockpi-4b/archive/? Does it also get stuck with them?
     
    Please use Spoiler next time for boot log ;-)

    piter75 got a reaction from JrRockeTer in Nanopi-M4V2 won't booting from eMMC and does not see eMMC: SOLVED eMMC plugs in opposite way than original M4   
    You are right, eMMC modules are compatible with both M4 and M4V2.
    Do you install eMMC modules the right way? eMMC in M4V2 needs to be rotated 180º vs. the way it was installed in your M4.

    piter75 got a reaction from Dyfcom in Nanopi M4v2 - crash/freeze   
    There are some older threads where people noticed it too, myself included 
     
    Would you like to participate in testing of a possible cure workaround for those issues?
    Here is the image build off the master with RAM settings tweaked a bit: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1H4K-1sBUttbeHZUaE_J-t-P5cjYiqPU7 
    If you want to build the image yourself you can use this branch of Armbian build system: https://github.com/armbian/build/tree/nanopi-m4v2-stability-fix
     
    I have mine restarted several times with those settings and I see no crashes on boot/reboot but it certainly needs some longer uptime testing to be deemed successful.

    piter75 got a reaction from aaditya in rk3399 vs rockchip64 family   
    You probably meant RockPro64 which is indeed a SBC name that is now part of rockchip64 family.
     
    Well... IMHO the name is fitting well.
     
    The idea of rockchip64 family is to consolidate one day all (rockchip 64) bit boards if possible - that means all based on 64 bit SoCs, eg. rk3328, rk3399 and rk3308.
    The rockchip64 family is nothing new - it already exists and contains rk3328 and rk3399 boards.

    I wonder what was actually changed to fix this.
    Nonetheless we will keep our changes in u-boot for the "current" target which is v5.4.x

    Mainline kernel is known to be unstable for this board
    Legacy is the way to go for now if you want it stable.

    piter75 reacted to magixx256 in Orange pi 4   
    So initially I had some trouble booting the Armbian images even the one I built locally.
    I'm certain this was because I had not properly wiped the MicroSD card after trying out the images from Orange Pi (I ended up using gparted to create an new msdos partition table) .
    Anyway I got around to testing some of the images and though I'd post the state of those as well:
     
    1. Armbian_19.11.9_Orangepi4_buster_current_5.4.16_minimal.img
    This was the image found here on Page 3 posted by @piter75
    It seemed to boot fine. eth0 and WLAN exist but I did not get connectivity (this was an issue with my router)
    https://asciinema.org/a/313413
    2. Armbian_20.02.6_Orangepi4_bionic_current_5.4.27_minimal.img
    Downloaded from https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-4/#kernels-archive-all
    Some issues seen during booting, but eventually it boots.
    eth0 and WLAN exist but I did not get connectivity due to my router
    https://asciinema.org/a/313424
    3. Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Orangepi4_bionic_current_5.4.27_minimal.img
    Image built locally using the docker guide.
    Kernel seems to take a bit longer to boot and there is no output from it as before.
    eth0 and WLAN exist, after messing with router eth0 works as expected.
    https://asciinema.org/a/313427
    Image available at https://mega.nz/#!jgZmzAzb!yp-g2viNrXAjO-rpM_25meDVBNSxOo2I8gOqD6t-p7g
    4. Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Orangepi4_bionic_dev_5.5.13_minimal.img
    Image built locally using the docker guide.
    Kernel seems to take a bit longer to boot and there is no output from it as before.

    Image available at https://mega.nz/#!LpIinS5I!MzscJ_tS5S4_5pcxpz5CZXKUeFxf3LdeE8IBIfORl-A

    All images flashed with Etcher
    MicroSD was Samsung Evo Select 64GB
    Board was OrangePi 4 4GB v1.3 without eMMC (cheapest config for this RAM)
    PSU was the USB barrel connector to a known good phone charger.
     
    I also tried out the mPCIe adapter with a mPCIe SATA card (ASM1061). The speeds were disappointing at max 210mb/s considering the card can definitely do 350mb/s+ in my laptop.
    I had hoped the newest os/kernel version would solve this, but it does not appear to do so. Maybe my testing methodology is wrong but I am doubting this after trying 2 different cards and multiple OSs.
    Another thing to note is that this board runs hot at ~75*C even with a small heatsink (no fan was used) and little going on.
     
    If anyone has something they'd like me to try then please ask.

    piter75 got a reaction from manuti in Rock Pi S, RK3308 CPU, is it supported by anything?   
    Unfortunately... yes. I did not test the upgrade path with latest changes
     
    At this point, if you can discard your install, you can download latest image (v20.02.06 / v4.4.217).
    If you want to recover your install you need to mount the SD in some other PC or SBC and modify "boot/armbianEnv.txt" as follows:
    add line overlays=uart0 change overlay_prefix line to overlay_prefix=rk3308 I will be more careful next time...
     
    As for the Radxa repos I don't use them.
