  1. Is there a comprehensive list of changes made that are more of an interest to us arm users?
  2. There is something important I should add. I am sure big corporations can easily contribute money to meet the demand goal, however this is a community project and it is therefore imperative that we as individuals contribute to the project. If only big corporations contribute they will probably want to have a say in what direction the project develops which could lead to only a small fraction of devices being developed for or it could lead to a situation where they ask that only their devices are prioritised. If you want that a wider range of devices are going to be wor
  3. I must add that I mostly use the rpi zero headless without a display. It is too weak to use as a desktop replacement. It is great when used together with a USB battery since the rpi zero has so little power draw. If you're after raw power there are many different better options.
  4. Call to Action: Armbian donation round. Dear members of the community, Do you love the armbian OS? Are you frustrated by bugs or problems within armbian? Do you wish that armbian was even better with more releases? If the answer is yes keep reading because there may be a solution. As you know the dedicated team of developers here code this project in their spare time to develop an incredible Linux OS for our ARM devices. They do this for the love of this hobby and we all benefit from it because it is an open source project.
  5. Hello everybody is there a good tutorial to compile u-boot.ext? Or are there perhaps any quality sources that already have u-boot.ext files? Thank you
  6. Balbes could you at least tag the last working version for amlogic without any time bomb so the code can be forked? I have noticed that with and after kernel version 5.7 the Sd card started getting corrupted. With the 5.9rc releases it became corrupted even faster. Is this a bug or feature?
  7. Balbes has stopped supporting the s905x3. We will need to compile it ourselves. Who would like to compile it with me? Is anyone interested? Can I have a show of hands?
  8. Well because you said that you have made a security mechanism that will break things on unsupported devices. That isn't normal. I understand that you don't want to support some devices, but including drm or malware that breaks devices on purpose is a different matter. Do you need any help? Is there anything that can be done?
  9. Hello Balbes. Which version of your images are safe to use without the security mechanisms? Are you upset because of something? I am a bit scared to use the new 5.9 version that you have made. Does it have that security mechanism?
  10. Balbes wrote "I will add various security mechanisms that will create serious problems, including hardware problems and hardware failure." You see I was very suspicious when my SD card kept getting corrupted after 5.7.x on s905x3. At first it would happen only when I hit" shutdown" it wouldn't boot after a restart. With 5.8 it would randomly happen while leaving the OS running. With 5.9 it happened on first boot. My sd card never corrupted in 4.9.... Now his statement explains a lot.
  11. Balbes have you abandoned us? Are you going to make a 5.9 stable release?
