  1. No. The Snapdragon 7c is different from the RK3318/RK3328. You'd have to find an image for the Snapdragon 7c.
  2. Wouldn't some paths be wrong? Like, the kernel is expected to be in eMMC and not SD card.
  3. Correct me if I'm wrong. But you want to run the system from a USB3 SSD? If so, I think the easiest would be to just have the boot on eMMC or SD-card, and the rest of the system on the SSD, then "almost" everything would be running from the fast SSD.
  4. It seems to be an SP6330 wifi chip, if you look at the chip with the most dust on it.
  5. Wouldn't it be easier to modify Armbian as you want it before installing it in the first place? I don't know how to do it, but example. Download @jock's Armbian, or compile your own. Modify the files on the .iso. write it to the SD card and install it on box 1 without the need to modify it later. Then do it on box 2, box 3, etc.
  6. If it's a similar problem as I had with my H96 Max Plus (RK3328) @jock gave me a few good hints Here,

  8. Late response. In theory. I think you're on te right track. The backup in multitool does a raw copy, sector by sector, of the eMMC, so... theoretically. Install Armbian to eMMC and configure it to your liking Take a backup of the eMMC with multitool. Start the next box with multitool and "restore" the backup from the first box. It could work. The problem with TV-boxes though, is that sometimes(or even often), even if they are named the same and look the same, there can be different hardware in them. Probably what was cheapest at the time of production. Other potential issue I see, even if they are 100% identical, would be the hostname. That might be needed to set manually on all boxes. For example "RK3228-Box"(if that was the original hostname) had to be set to "RK3228-Box-1","RK3228-Box-2", etc. Otherwise the network might get confused. Then again, if you have hundreds of them. You could experiment a bit. It wouldn't be a total loss if a few of them died during experimentation.
  9. I noticed the same when I was trying to restore my backup. It got stuck at around 20-25 percent and I thought it might work better if I uncompress it first. Oups, I have a 64GB eMMC, and the SD card I had at the time was only 16 or 32 GB. The backup is a raw disk image of the eMMC, and it will always be the same size as the eMMC until it's compressed, and "removing the blank data" is part of the compression process.
  10. My French is not the best but for me it seems like the folders named "/boot/dtb-5.14.13-rockchip64/rockchip", "/boot/dtb-5.14.13-rockchip64/rockchip/overlay" and "/var/lib/initramfs-tools" are missing and the packages "bison" and "flex" needs to be installed.
  11. So, it should have the new Paragon additions for NTFS, right? I usually have an external NTFS drive connected to my box, and I'm currently using the NTFS-3G driver. It's said that the new stuff is supposed to be better. Pretty cool, my Arch Linux x86_64 desktop computer still has 5.14.**.
  12. Current: APPEND root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0gs=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 Fix after quick look: APPEND root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 It seems like you had everything after "APPEND root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootfla" copied and pasted after "net.ifnames=0" Is this the S905x3 version? I've been looking at one, but still not decided on it.
  13. And perhaps try with different SD cards. I first used some expensive recommended 64GB SanDisk card and nothing worked then I tried a "no-name" cheap 8GB card and it worked perfectly. I think it's up to luck when it comes to the SD cards. The recommended expensive cards might work more often than the cheap ones, but sometimes it's the other way around.
  14. Just one question. How did you "burn" the iso to the SD-card? did you use dd, rufus, etc? Just in case the error is there and not with the box or the iso?
  15. Did you try multitool? Oh, now when I think of it. Didn't we had to press the "reset button" while plugging in the power, the first time? Toothpick in the headphone jack. Or it might have been my other box.
  16. I have the plus. However, I was never able to boot Armbian from the SD card, I used Multitool from this thread. Added the Armbian ISO to it, multitool booted fine from the SD card, then took a backup of the stock ROM with multitool and then erased eMMC and installed Jock's Armbian via multitool.
  17. Have fun experimenting. I myself is "hooked" on playing with the TV-boxes. First I had an old Mini M8S II Amlogic S905x 2/8 box that had been in a drawer for years, and I thought it should be possible to use it as a mini server and found Armbian. Then I felt that 8GB was a bit tiny, and started to look around for something slightly bigger though still cheap. I was choosing between Rockship RK3328 and Allwinner H6 since it looked like they both had fairly good support already, and not an Amlogic S905x(2,3,4) since I read here on the forum about some bad practice from Amlogic. After finding out that the H6 only can handle 3GB RAM, I went for the RK3328. In my subjective experience, the Amlogic felt easier to work with and also felt faster... No idea if it is for real. Thinking about getting a box with an Allwinner chip as well, just so I have one each of the three bigger brands, but it will have to wait for some savings to pile up. The RK3566 boxes with 8GB RAM looks fun as well, but I don't think I use anywhere near 4GB at the moment...
  18. Ahh. So it's a HK1 thing...I got a H96 Max+ and at least it seems to have the specified RAM/eMMC size.

  19. The "HK1 RBOX R1 mini 4G/64G" Seems to be around 45 Euros in various places, Banggood for example. Why wouldn't it be real 4GB/64GB? It seems to be more or less standard nowadays. I know the Allwinner H6 only can handle 3GB RAM but usually is sold with a 4GB chip inside, but I've never heard about it with the Rockship RK3318/RK3328. They seem to have cheaper versions with 2/16 and 4/32 though.
  20. While I was in Sweden some month ago, I only had access to an old 1024x768 monitor, connected via an HDMI to DVI adapter. It did NOT work. Multitool, yes, everything else, no. I would not recommend to do an apt update && apt upgrade before you have gone through "armbian-config" and frozen firmware and kernel updates, or frozen them by other means.
  21. Is there any way to just "update" to it, without re-flashing the eMMC? I assume that apt-get update && upgrade won't work for kernels in the images not supported by Armbian.
  22. Good Morning. Just a quick question. Is it possible that the temperature is shown wrong at login? ____ _ ____________ _ ___ ____ | _ \| |/ /___ /___ // |( _ ) | __ ) _____ __ | |_) | ' / |_ \ |_ \| |/ _ \ | _ \ / _ \ \/ / | _ <| . \ ___) |__) | | (_) | | |_) | (_) > < |_| \_\_|\_\____/____/|_|\___/ |____/ \___/_/\_\ Welcome to Armbian 21.11.0-trunk Bullseye with Linux 5.10.68-rockchip64 No end-user support: built from trunk System load: 3% Up time: 2 days 21:03 Memory usage: 4% of 3.88G IP: CPU temp: 68°C Usage of /: 8% of 57G It seems to idle at 68 C and when doing stuff goes to 90+.

  23. No, I'm quite bad at screwing and such because of an injury. Sorry. Oh... I have the H96Max+ RK3328 4GB/64GB Voice Remote version (not that I have tried using voice commands on it). Who knows, the Voice Remote version and the normal remote version might differ.
