  1. Hello, thanks for your answer. Maybe I asked the question wrong. Maybe I'd better ask if installing Armbian Bionic for the Odroid-C2 works the same way as for the Orange Pi 3. Write image to SD card, plug in eMMC memory, then boot and install from SD card, where eMMC serves as boot loader and the "rootfs" is copied to a connected USB stick. Currently I have had Ubuntu 18. 04 on the device for about 2 years and have adapted it so that at least the "/usr" and "/var" directories are moved to USB. Of course, this is not a nice solution and I would have liked to have the rest of the "rootfs" on USB as well, but it serves its purpose. I mean when installing the Orange Pi3 / Arbian Bionic there was the option to install, boot from eMMC and rootfs to USB. Would that be the same for the Odroid-C2 / Armbian Bionic?
  2. Hi guys, i have a question regarding the installation method of the two operating systems. On my OrangePI3 I booted the operating system from micro sd card and told armbian bionic that the eMMC memory will only be used as a boot loader while the rootfs of the actual operating system is installed on a connected USB stick. Is it the same with the Armbian Bionic for the Odroid C2 version? Or is it the case that the future operating system is written directly to the eMMC memory and booted from there? And then there was the reminder that Odroid C2 does not boot from USB. . . Can I use it as described for OrangePI3?
  3. Hello, sorry for late response and thank you for your answer. It works. The Power LED can only be turned off. For an inserted USB Stick I really need a solution. Thanks for help.
  4. Hi all together, on a Raspberry Pi 3b and 3b+ as well as on a Odroid-C2 I know how to switch off the blinking LEDs s or Power LEDs. Does anybody know how I can switch off or dim that extremely bright red power LED from the OrangePi3? I tried a script snippet like this: echo none > /sys/class/leds/orangepi\:red:\power/trigger But it wont work. Has anybody a helpful hint for an unpatient contemporary? Thanks for help :o)
  5. Hi all, I asked AliExpress as well as the guy who is chatting with me since beginning of August 2019. Nobody sayed anything about that. I asked may if its legal in china .. no answer ;(
  6. Hi guys, today the manufacturer of OrangePi 3 want a new video. A video were they can see the problem with the SD card slot. Its unbelievable. The 6MB movies I've sent to theire mailaddress had a bad resolution, then I put a better quality to YouTube. They didn't watch the movies I've published at YouTube. I'm sure that guys kidding me and don't want to give the warranty ;( Should I stop chatting with them via AliExpress and send the device back to china?
  7. They really want to make me belief, that win7 will change the behaviour of the broken device. They think I'm stupid by writing, Win10 is not supported .. but a Virtual machine with Ubuntu 19.04 on a Win10do. My goodness.. that are no engineers in China, they are construction worker.
  8. Hey guy,s, I have unfortunately a lucky hand for such bad luck. ;(
  9. Hi all, honestly, I'm not that rich to drop the bugged one into the waste bin to buy another one. All in all I payed with additional german tax around 50 €uro for 1 Device. Both 100€uro. In germany you can not sustain one of such devices for less than 100 €uro. It's a drawback, that private people don't have the same rigths than big companies. But you're right. Other companies grant warranty and replacement easily when they see that actions I've had and commented with video and at this forum. Just in case I'm totally disappointed of all the OPI3 issues and want to sell maybe at eBAY, I have to grant warranty as well. When I compare the troubles which raised since I detected that bugged device, I rather drop all into the waste bin and never buy anything from that manufacturer. Just in case that friends decide to buy an OPI3, I will tell them my bad experience with this company.. Sad, that I gave them good reputation before I ran into that troubles ;(
  10. UPDATE.. The Chinese company told me to use WIN7 .. maybe for USB-TTL debugging. Possibly they disturbed at the OS - Win10 which I am using. Is there any difference to connect USB-TTL via WIN7 while WIN10 drivers are broken and a "VBOX - Ubuntu 19.04" can easily connect to the working device but not to the bugged one? My stupidity to understand "Dispute and Evidence" to open, is gone and I suppose they wont solve that problem by easily replace while warranty time is running. The costs would be at my side .. I suppose. I gave the link of the thread to the company that they can read what should happen but not occurs.
  11. Hello guys, I've made movies about my 2x OPI3. I created because the manufacturer wanted to see the buggged device and the good device. My spoken english is a little stuttering. The good and working device has the Serial Number 2019040200101458 DELETED FROM YOUTUBE The bugged device has the Serial Number: 2019040200101505 DELETED FROM YOUTUBE I'll delete this movies after a while which I support.
  12. Hello, I downloaded the Armbian-Bionic from here and I flashed the micro SD card with it. I checked everything out with this SD card at the bugged device until I unpacked one week later the 2nd OPI3 which is now flashed with the OS from here. I updated and upgraded the operating system at the SD card before I flashed the 2nd device. At this time I am using the "old" flashed micro SD card with the updated & upgraded Armbian-Bionic. That SD card does not work with the bugged device. Other "32GB Samsung EVO+" work only in the working device with all features. But not with the bugged one.. The 16GB Micro SD "SanDisk Ultra" was an emergency shopping because I thought the troubles are from "Samsung 32GB", and it's at this point neigher the SD card type nor the SD card size.
  13. Hello again, the board is switching the red enlighted power LED instantly to green. At this point I know and I've figured that out, the device is booting into Android. An inserted micro SD card does not change the behaviour with booting and the power LED. And I don't understand what you want to say with.. Pardon I am no harware crack ;(
  14. Hello, thank you for your assistance. The 2nd OrangePi3 I've checked is possible to connect via serial USB console. It needed a while but I got the login prompt to the Armbian-Bionic flashed eMMC memory. The connection was available only on the virtual machine. No login to the bugged device. And five minutes later the same .. no login prompt.
  15. Hello alltogether, today I got an USB-TTL cable. I connected the pins like the OPI3 manual shows. I installed the outdated PL2303HXH driver via device manager on my Win10do x86_64 but its impossible to connect via putty into the serial connection. Other drivers I've found around the internet could not be installed. At the same machine I have VBOX with a working Ubuntu 19.04 Desktop - 64bit. I saw a /dev/ttyUSB0 device but the same, I can not connect. I've never had such a bugged device. For today I am stumped. I hope they grant warranty.
