  1. How is the temperature situation compared to say, NanoPI NEO? I know that armbian now manages thermal output pretty well, but I am curious. Does OPi zero run generally cooler? Seems like I^2*R heating should be less if you can idle it at 550 mW. (but I know that power consumption and heating are not strictly related!).
  2. That's great news! I'm excited to receive mine (tomorrow!) and contribute to testing. Also, I just noticed the Orange Pi website now has a lubuntu build OPi zero for download. I'll look around to see if there is a XR819 driver floating around in there.
  3. Thanks for the fast reply! Okay, so that doesn't sound too difficult. I'm going to try to find the correct xradio driver and see how far I can get. I will have two of these boards very soon, so if there is anything I can do to contribute to getting this board supported, please let me know...I am eager to give back to the community. Would the Opi Lite image be a good starting point? It looks like there are many similarities between these boards (voltage regulator, SDRAM). It would be nice also to have a "h2consumption" tool to play with using the Opi zero as a low power IoT node, but I guess I can change settings manually for now. Cheers
  4. Hi everyone, This new Orange Pi board is exciting to me because it seems to have the best of the NanoPi NEO (small size) but also the best of Orange Pi (built-in wifi, more I/O). Here is my question: I see that this board uses the Allwinner H2+...does anyone have any initial thoughts on what this will change in terms of OS requirements/configuration? The OrangePi website has an Android OS for it, but I like Armbian and am hoping that I can still use it. I'm fairly new (only been learning for about one year) to linux, but I am good with drivers, C++, and following instructions. I have used your tool chain several times to custom configure my Opi Lite, NPi NEO, and NPi M1, but those are all H3 boards. As a side note - I'd just like to say thanks for the great work you all do. I would have given up a long time ago if it wasn't for the wealth of info and resources available on here. (I finally got around to making my first small donation recently!) So thank you for that! Cheers --
