    An additional bench with a snapdragon 820 soc (Inforce 6640): I used default small heatsink without any fan, so it throtles on some benchmarks which heavy cpu loads like cpuminer.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    I didn't test if wif was working (I think it wasn't), because I only used ethernet.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    With 3.14 kernel, I use the dtb of android img that is stored on emmc. So this is the Beelink dtb. In fact it is automatically used when you don't put a dtb file at the root of the sd card. I'll try to install it again, since a recent upgrade broke my system (no ethernet anymore). New images (4.xx) of Balbes does not really work on my box (no ethernet and no usb even if it boots).

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

    Yes, my box was connected to a hdmi monitor, so I can view the console login prompt, but no usb to use a keyboard and no ethernet nor wireless to connect via ssh.

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

    I tested recently and had the same issues with an s912 tv box (gt1 ultimate) previously running a 3.14 img. I was able to boot with most dtbs cthat are compatible with the soc, but I never hab been able to use usb nor network devices.

    La Frite (AML-S805X-AC)

    Until the campaign ends and they send the boards, I should receive one (1GB). I'll be able to test if there is any armbian build for it. I'm impressed (if verified when testing the board) by the current support status of this board. It often requires several months (years) when we look at existing boards (even if open source communities are doing a really great job).

    Since I upgrade frequently, I think there is not too much difference. Armbian tools and firmware are updated as other packages. Of course there should be some specific modifications of Balbes after each update he made. If 5.41 has mali, it is useless for me since I use my box as a server.

    As mentionned by talraash, I use 5.37 which use kernel 3.14. I don't do anything special, but the dtb from android is used since and I don't put anyone at the root of the sd card. The dtb from android (generally based on a 3.xx kernel for amlogic. soc) is often not compatible with kernel 4.x.

    Armbian for TV box rk3328

    I tested yesterday evening your last image with my V88 mini III. I burnt your u-boot related files using rockchip opensource documentation, otherwise it booted to emmc starting android instead of sd card. After that, I still was not able to boot even after testing all available dtbs (except android ones). I'll try too connect uart as soon as possible to give more insight of the problem.
  10. I'm currently running a Beelink GT1 ultimate (S912, 3Go DDR4, 32Go) with your armbian 5.37 based on 3.14.29 debian stretch without specifying any dtb file. It is used as a server with openmediavault and homeassistant. I'm running armbian from sd card. I just made upgrades and got armbian-config 5.64 with an uptime of 70 days.

    I found that bt chip should be supported by mainline kernel, but relevant info have to be defined in device tree: I suppose that your chip is also concerned, but I'm a totally newbie concerning device tree. I tried to decompile your current dtb, but then I'm not able to make the relevant modifications to then compile and get a working dtb. The dtc command asks for uart2_pins in the best case and I don't know how to configure them. Is there somebody else who make such broadcom bluetooth chip working with mainline? As I understand, only allwinner chips support overlays, because armbian-add-overlay returns an error claiming that.

    No bluetooth is not working. No device is defined. I looked at several ways to add it, but nothing work for now.

    A5X Max damaged?

    Surely a stupid question, but is your psu working well ? and do you use the right usb port when use connect to pc?

    Thanks a lot, wifi works well now with fw_bcm4339a0_ag.bin from github! In fact those files where in /lib/firmware/brcm/ (as asked by martinayotte) and not in /lib/firmware/ap6335/brcm/. I use the ones you told me to download, but I suppose that those in /lib/firmware/brcm/ should also work. You did something special to use this path?

    Yes with many other brcmfac variants.
