  1. Z28 [RK3328] 1/8

    @rob0809, wonder how your box is coming along with Linux while i'm early waiting for my boxes to arrive.
  2. Z28 [RK3328] 1/8

    Would appreciate insight into ^^ questions. I've also ordered SCISHION V88 to test out. Maybe Rob could also test GbE in Android? I was testing another box recently (S905), where the "supposed to be GbE" port doesn't work at all inside Android nor Linux. Link established, IP received from DHCP, but nothing more works.
  3. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Thanks i i've read quite some posts about this device, among others: It looks like the GbE is crippled in Android, OE and Linux so i have no hope here. I will try to flash it to the SD-Robots firmware to see if it's usable with Android + WiFi. Possibly also LE if i get some time. Otherwise i'm gonna demand refund for this!
  4. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Thanks @Shimonfor pointing out. My hope was to use it as Linux box, but if the GbE is not working, then i can't really. If things work more stable in Android, i could be forced to use it actually. I tried to Google for the firmware, but i find none that supports 2G/16G + GbE. If you bother: can you give me a link? Much appreciated. If we can actually make this box useful, it could be a good value for those $33. Thanks.
  5. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    I see @mdel. This box comes with old Android 5.1 and IIRC, the LAN showed 100Mbit, but i need to check this again as i also had issues in Android, when i think back. Network didn't work using LAN actually. So it could actually be an issue with the LAN port. Didn't even know iperf existed for Android, will definitely test with iperf. Yes, i use 4.14rc2_next images from @balbes150, while @Shimon mentioned he has tested with 3.14 kernel. My intention was to get a $33 S905 box with 2G/16G + GbE. But this box looks bad so far

    @balbes150 if you want, i can buy this box for you so you can develop further. I can order it direct to your address, PM me your name + address. This box has got S905 (not S905x) 2G/16G and 1gbit LAN. I tried with meson-gxbb-odroidc2.dtb, it boots, USB works and 1gbit just is unstable. I suspect the LAN driver is wrong with Armbian_5.32_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_4.14.0-rc2-next-20170929_server.img.xz from I can setup all fine with the device conneced to my TV using terminal direct login, but when i try to SSH into the box, i can't get in. It hangs sometimes before and after the password typing.
  7. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    I just got myself an S905 box with a strange name, but it's likely an H96 Plus 4K aka MXQ MXQ Pro+ with 2G/16G and 1GbE, SD card reader rather than microSD card reader. I am able to boot an older server image from August with 4.13 kernel, but there is no USB. It's when i use nextbox DTB. The other DTBs i've tried fail with mounting rootfs. What image should i try? I'd like to have a server/headless image as well as a desktop, if possible. Thanks.
  8. The best SoC/devboard/TV-box for HW accelerated desktop

    To avoid having the CPU being heavily loaded by using some simple apps with GUI. And with H96Pro+ S912 the desktop feels slow in all aspects. But using it as headless, i'm very satiesfied though. Now i've ordered H96 Plus with S905/2G/16G + 1GbE which costs ~ 1/half of S912 boxes. I wonder if that might make up for a lightweight desktop. @debianxfce, thx. I'll give yours image a try on H96 plus S905 when it arrives.
  9. With many users here in this forum owning different SoCs, dev boards and TV boxes, i wonder which one would be recommended to be used as a simple desktop with HW support for GUI. I have one S905 in my mind, but not sure if mali-450 is supported with balbes150 images.
  10. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    How do i get my H96Pro+ to work with a DVI monitor (it works fine with our Samsung TV, HDMI input)? I've tried to with HDMI-to-DVI adapter (this could be opposite adapter not sure), no signals on the monitor. Do i need active HDMI-to-DVI adapter? Will any Orange Pi H3 or H5 boards have the same issues too? I'm planning to buy an Orange Pi board that has accelerated X11/GUI so that i can use it as a simple desktop, mainly to access my KVM VM over SPICE protocol.
  11. Looking forward to the first Orange Pi H6 board. If Xunlong enables us to use such an mPCIe Marvell SATA adapter, that would really rock!

    @tkaiser, that just crashed my H96Pro+ remote at home. Let's see if can run this while i'm closer to it
  13. A5X MAX RK3328 4GB/16GB

    Disclamier: i'm a total n00b on this! Reminds me of when i tried to boot my H96Pro+ with "not one of the correct" DTB, all i saw was a red light and nothing on the screen. Could be something similar. If it's not booting Android from the eMMC, it's a good sign that it tries to boot from SD card? But if the SD card reader is NOT on sdio0, then bummer
  14. A5X MAX RK3328 4GB/16GB

    @srx: that button behind one of the audio jack is the reset button as @exquisitus points out. At least on my H96Pro+, it must be pressed inside while powering up in order to activate boot from mSDcard reader. Yet another one Beelink A1 RK3328. Compared to A5X MAX (which i've and not yet unboxed at home), it also has 1GbE Question is if we can run Linux on it.
