  1. Yeah, that's the one. Hmm it has been a worthy adversary I see. I made a seperate thread with some more details but no replies yet. Any assistance would be appreciated! It's interesting we seem to be the only two people on the internet trying to get this working and we are both from the Melbourne area! I'll buy you a coffee next time I'm in town.
  2. Hello, I have been trying for a few weeks to get this LCD dsiplay (Store Wiki) to work with the NanoPi Neo Air. The display driver required is apparently the ST7789V. I was able to get the pair to work using this image supplied by FriendlyArm. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1CAKS1BNGk6vbAsPy5HmeGdO4FPZkvksz However, the OS introduces other issues to my setup and I don't want to depart from our beloved Armbian. at last I know the hardware working and wired correctly. I think I need a custom kernel, but I'm not sure. This thread mentioned the display I am using and talked about building a custom kernel. I got the build env up ran a kernel build but I was not able to find any drivers relating to the ST7789V. Any advice on how I can get this working? I can get the fbtft and the fb_st7789v drivers running but they do not detect the lcd display. In case you are interested in the back story this is what I have tried so far: Add drivers to currently running kernel (was 4.1.x somthing at the time) according to instruction here. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/7119-guide-how-to-configure-tft-display-touchscreen-on-orange-pi-pc-mainline-kerneel/ Copy kernel files from FriendlyArm OS Copy Armbian rootfs to friendlyArm OS image (almost worked) Found out that fbtft_device name is no longer supported Tested two incompatible fbtft driver alternatives https://github.com/bitbank2/bb_spi_lcd/tree/master/examples/spi_lcd_demo Some rasberry pi only one. Found that I can build custom kernels fairly easily! https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/ EDIT: Had trouble adding the wiki link. Here it is: http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/Matrix_-_2'8_SPI_Key_TFT
  3. Hi @Exie trying to get the same friendly arm tft to work. What driver did you select? Did you have to install any additional software? Burnt about 2 weeks on this so far.. I have tried all sorts of kernel/os/driver combinations. Any tips? I did try to build a custom kernel but couldn't find any reference to a tft/spi/ST7789V driver.
