  1. Hello! Hope this message find you guys doing ok amidst the crazy times we live in. I have followed the mentioned link below, downloaded the "current 5.10 minimal", and have hit a weird wall: rk322x-config stops before setting up the wifi.Therefore, my wifi is not setting up. I have many other images (mostly if not all legacy ones) where my ssv6051p is working very well. I have installed xfce4 from armbian-config and still could not see or find it through graphical interface. On CLI I tried checking modprobe, iperf, nmtui, dmesg... It seems like it is just not there at all. So, I thought "well shit, something went down", and removed the minimal to go back to my most developed version of legacy with lubuntu and wifi is working just fine. And rk322x-config does have the full length, going over wifi settings and options for it. Any suggestions...? I have the general idea I have read about it somewhere, but looking through the topic I could not find anything I haven't tried. If this answer is somewhere, my apologies, but if you could send me its link I'd appreciate it! Best, Vitor
  2. Hello o/ I have a Tanix tx6s and, as far as I could tell, there isn't much about it online on how to start armbian on it. I tried the general instructions for the orangepi zero 2 but the box just remains unbootable. Now, I have looked at the sunxi webpage and there is a, somewhat, set of instructions to get the bootloader and dtb properly working for this box... I doubt it but, has anyone done/tried it? And do you recommend a different approach? Thanks!
  3. Hey guys, This may be a more "linux general question", but what I could find and try did not work, so it may be a armbian/rk3228 specific solution. On this rk3328 I am running ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS, Kernel 4.4 with x11 and XFCE (sddm greeter) - rk3328. Now my question: How do I make the screen, regardless of monitor (hdmi input) to have the same resolution and aspect ratio? Say I want it to be 4:3 and 500x600. How do I force, thorugh a script, any single monitor to run with this configuration? I found some instructions on how to do this with xrandr and whatnot, but it just does not stick. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  4. Yeah, that's exactly what I have learned. But like, I have a rk3229 which can run things but it is very slow. Best performance "fix" is to have a 800x600 resolution. I am struggling to navigate on web, watch youtube at 480p is FAR from great... The mediaframework stuff is mostly to have the accelaration for Kodi, it doesn't helped that much with regular usage. On top of it, most of google stuff won't work (no google meet and google drive is pretty slow). Nor will any video chat platform really work, even if audio only. I am trying to make it into a cheap basic computer, mostly for productivity. Anyways, I'm hoping the H313 will be better just enough that these things won't be terrible. It can be bad, but hopefully work and it's not a trash performance. But I'm prepared for the same possible outcome, lol Thanks <3
  5. Hello! I know this is for H616 and things are on early stages... But I read somewhere that the H313 is the same chip as H616, so I am wondering: would the images and procedure for H616 work on a H313 board? I don't have one yet to test, but I am planning on getting and trying. Just wondering if someone else has done it. Thanks and best!
  6. Hey @jock, I just lost my minimal image due to a dead sdCard. Woul you happen to have it still available...? Sorry for troubling you with it! If not, I will try to build one myself (but I'm affraid I'd hit that wall once more...)
  7. Well, no, not at all. Here is all steps on what happened: Bought the box with android 7.1 and it booted OK; Inserted SD card with multitool and ran "restore" instead of "install" with an Armbian version that I already had "perfected" on another exactly equal box; I have installed (thoruhg "install" menu option in multitool) this same version of Armbian on another number of this exact same box, multiple times, and nothing similar has ever happened! Tried to boot the box, nothing happened; Tried to boot the box with the multitool SD card in and got that error screen; Nothing could change the results of steps 3 and 4 so far. Steps 3 and 4 happened on multiple attempts. I was never able to get back to android or start multitool again. The box is, therefore, bricked. Could this have happened because of a faulty multitool install? Could multitool have damaged something to make it "bricked"? Or is it more likely that the box is somehow faulty? I believe on the latter but have not tried investigating. I never used the rkdevelopt tool, but I will try to use it later!
  8. I see, thanks! Well, yeah. But for that I'd need multitool to open, haha Currently, I either have no boot or boot into that "error like" screen I posted the images for. It doesn't go anywhere, no terminal, no multitool, no nothing. Just that and only that. That's why I am strongly inclined to believe something on the board (hardware) is faulty.
  9. Hey Jock! Thanks for answering so fast! Here is what happened: android was installed (I do not remember if I used it, but I believe I did at least tested...), anyways, the only different thing I did was to install armbian through multitool using "restore" instead of "install", could that have been the issue? Then, after that, the board does not boot at all. If I try to boot it pressing the reset button with the multitool sd card I get that screen. The sd card is 100% working as I have installed and backed up and restored multiple version on multiple boxes. I have not tried anything with the rkdev tool ever, but I could try something. Regardless, I can't even revert back to android since I can't get multiool working. That's why I believe it has to be a hardware failure... Also: can, somehow, an action from multitool (restore, backup, install...) break a box/emmc? It doesn't mess with clocks or voltages, does it? Like, I suppose a energy shortage midway process could be dangerous... But, assuming everything to be normal, can multitool actions themselves break/brick the box? As always, I appreciate your guys work and efforts, thank you so much!
  10. Hi! One of my boxes is no longer booting on android or armbian, and I'm unsure on how to proceed. If I force it to boot with the reset pressed, trying to open multitool, I get the following screen. Does it seem like it is "recoverable" or is it some hardware failure...?
  11. Hey, here I am again! This time around I'm trying to use "leocad", but I have this weird bug going on where I cannot see the bricks, nor the tile... Has anyone experienced something similar, maybe with another CAD program...? I will be asking this on their forum as well! On the other picture you can see my terminal info about the package and its dependencies! Thanks and best!
  12. Hello amazing people, I have a really nice version of the system running as I want it to: Armbian is a productivity suite and I can watch twitch on Kodi. I have been trying to play stuff, like emulators, and I am now having issues - which I am sure I wasn't having earlier on. While on Armbian Mednafen/Mednaffe will run some games well, some will suck. Like, even if GLRUN it will, at best, play 17fps. So, I thought: silly me, let's try the emulators through Kodi cuz Kodi twitch is smooth 1080p (while on Armbian I'm lucky if I have 360p), so the video stuff might be better in Kodi... And, well, shit. It seems like there was an update on Kodi and it is now way above 18.6 (default Kodi for mediaFramework) and it is just not possible to install things there anymore. It keeps asking for stuff, such as libretro and whatnot, which I can't install unless I upgrade, but I can't upgrade Kodi... Am I missing something here? Is there an option? Basically: I want to able to run some SNES/GBA games and that's all. Thanks o/
  13. Hey, man. Not sure if this could be what you're looking for, but I managed to play SNES and GBA on Ubuntu legacy with Mednaffe/Mednafen. It ran just fine and well. If you try and have issues, let us know o/
  14. Thanks @jock and @fabiobassa! Yeah, it is partially due to these limitations and also the limitations of how I am currently using Kodi that I am trying that dual boot alternative. You guys don't happen to know anything about it, do you? Even if it'd mean run android on eMMC and Linux from the sdcard, it'd still be very helpful! If things keep running as they are, I think I can turn this into a product soon enough - and then help with donations! ^^
  15. Hi everyone, I'm doing really well on the board I have! I am sure this is a really capable board! So far I have: . Played emulator games and some old/retro games such as quake 1, 2, and doom; . Web-browesed on Firefox to almost any website (netflix doesn't work, some issues with google meet as well); . Edited photos and pdf with gimp, libreoffice draw, kolourpaint... Flawlessly!; . Draw 2d cad with librecad and will be testing leocad soon!; . When videos work, like in YouTube or twitch, I can watch them decent at 480p, very decent at 360p; . Watched 1080p on kodi (at least on twitch), but the other services (Amazon, Netflix, Disney, YouTube...) I wasn't able to try yet. Overall, this makes for a REALLY good and cheap basic desktop. But just to be sure, let me ask something: is there any way to dual boot with android + armbian? That'd be possible with, I suppose, partitioning the emmc... I am aware that there is a way to install linux in Android and then ssh into it. But that's not the same thing I'm asking about! As always, thanks a lot for the help and support here. You guys are awesome. Much love <3
