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
Some rasberry pi only one.
Found that I can build custom kernels fairly easily! https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/
Had trouble adding the wiki link. Here it is: http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/Matrix_-_2'8_SPI_Key_TFT
