    Glad to hear that you solved the issue; I will put this nvram in the armbian firmware repository as well, thanks!

    I finally managed to solve the problem, my box can connect to wifi with that new 2734C chip.  Thanks to @jock for directing my attention to the nvram file, I was wrong, dtb was not needed to solve it. However, Google didn't help with the solution (I don't even understand how it could have helped), but I contacted the Chinese manufacturer of the box and they helped. I have attached the correct nvram file, the content of which I overwrote the brcm/brcmfmac4334-sdio.rockchip,rk3318-box.txt file that comes with the current image. I recommend that you integrate it into the kernel, because the current kernel does not, or at least does not, support this widely used wireless chip.

    @jock Thanks for the info. On a side note, I found a small bug: when making the emmc backup, if the resulting file is bigger than 4Gb it will just stop there (because of the FAT size limit) and you will get a broken backup.
     
    Probably could be solved by splitting the backup, for example along these lines:
    # Split backup in 2Gb parts, with two-character suffixes dd if=/dev/mmcblk1 | gzip -c | split -b 2000m - tvbox-backup.img.gz. # Restore the backup cat tvbox-backup.img.gz.* | gzip -dc | dd of=/dev/mmcblk1

    @jock : you did a great job, congratulations! 👍
    I tried the new image today and (I think thanks to the clock change) I saw a 20% increase in speed during the operation of the box.
    I was hoping that the new image, with its many minor fixes, would also help my Wi-Fi connection problem.
    Unfortunately, I have not seen any improvement in this area. The relevant part of the dmesg output is:

    In my experience, no I2C bus is freely routed, such as soldering point. However, if your box has an LCD display, there is a workaround. In 90% of such boxes, the display drive IC is I2C bus, so you can connect it to its corresponding pins (SCK, SDA) with another device.

    I use @jock's great job (Armbian_22.02.0-trunk_Rk3318-box_bullseye_edge_5.15.16_minimal) in my H96 Max box.
    I would like to clone this content of box to another two H96 boxes.
    I do the backup with multitool and then use the restore function on the other with the same tool.
    Unfortunately, the result is not what I expect, it doesn't start at first:

     
    What to do or write to get started?

    did not focus on vfd yet since i am using this box as low power server utility in case of power outage, so really not need the led
    but if i can help by doing some test why not
    will let you know

    @lucky62 : I have a board with a 3318 CPU and a 7-segment display, driven by a 6334 controller. I would like to ask if the openvfd driver you created will be good for this too? If so, am I still asking that your openvfd driver is already included in the jock's bullseye minimal image? I want to set up and control this display.

    SSH is disabled by default. It can be enable in menu... 
     
    btw/
    Android has root so maybe some root/ files would be useful?

    @fabiobassa, @jock: you are right guys, I apologize to you.
    I realize I’m really frustrated by the helplessness. I just want to work, but I can’t, I feel like I’m exposed to the playful entertainment of others.

    I am pleased to report the 20210303 images (I tested Focal) work great (copying to EMMC using standard Armbian method) on the T95 Mini box.  FYI, this is my favorite TV box as it is small, has a nice enclosure and good thermal properties (CPU usually around 50-55 degrees).  And it is available < $20 (USD) on Alibaba in small quantities.
