    No, most likely some dtc or environment commands changes that were made recently. Now that we have a test case I will try to bisect the sources.

    Getting back to development related news - basic Rock64 support was added to the mainline tree starting with 4.14-rc1: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/arch/arm64/boot/dts/rockchip/rk3328-rock64.dts?h=v4.14-rc1&id=955bebde057e71b6f29b97b78c027efdd596e62d

    Thank you.
     
    I have figure it out from an topic about pine64.  I modified and recompiled the boot.cmd. Now everything is Okay.

    Bingo ! You got a good idea !
    Without the mSATA inserted, there is no more issue for using the USB receptable for any devices.
    This means the JMS stay quiet on the D+/D- line and no more conflicts.

    the following patch fixes cpufreq for the Orange Pi Zero, Mainline 4.11.12.
    @mbee, to give it a try save it as e.g. "orangepi-zero-add-cpufreqscaling.patch" and place it in build/userpatches.
    Don't forget to freeze the kernel version in armbian-config to avoid loosing this functionality when running apdate/upgrade.
    This patch also fixes some temperature issues since the CPU is not fed 1.3V all the time. My OPiZ is right now idling happily at 30 deg (21 deg ambient temp). Armbianmonitor now reports the current cpu-freq.
    @igor, please consider to include this patch.

    To (try to) display a boot logo
     
    The logo patch contains 2 parts: extra commands in the boot sequence and a configuration patch to compile in BMP support code: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/patch/u-boot/u-boot-sunxi/sunxi-boot-splash.patch
    Obviously "unknown command "bmp"" error means that one part of the patch doesn't work.
     
    boot.scr is boot.cmd packaged with a special header that contains the image type, checksum and similar things.
    U-boot sets some variables during the boot sequence, some of them come from platform specific include files, others come from generic distro_bootmd support. You can check the u-boot environment with "env print", it will contain most of the boot sequence commands and variables, you'll just have to trace how commands are calling other commands while setting some variables in the process.

    Basic characteristic from the kernel in development is that things are missing and regressions are possible. Linux kernel and Armbian are community projects, a common work. If all would only wait that things are fixed, they never are or very late: https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute/

    It's most likely "benchmarking gone wrong".
    -evp here applies only to the next algo on the command line (aes-128-cbc), 2 next ones are not affected by this option. So I would advise to rerun the test 3 times, 1 algo at a time, and edit/post a combined table.

    @tkaiser, while all of that is correct, there is another use case that you didn't consider.  What about using this for a NAS/router?  One interface towards the internal network and the other to the outside.  Not all of the traffic has to terminate on the Rock64.

    You can't really compare A20 and H3 in the host mode. A20 will use rather limited host emulation (MUSB) mode by the OTG controller. H3, H5 and A64 OTG port can be multiplexed to a "real" EHCI/OHCI host which doesn't have any limitations (as long as the OTG port can provide enough power to your DVB-T tuner).
     
    Sorry, I didn't try to be harsh or rude, I just already said on the previous page that I'm planning to upgrade when 4.13 is released and I didn't think that OTG may be of interest to anyone since H5 (compared to A64) has enough USB host controllers for most use cases.

    What a wasted opportunity. Even an H5 sitting behind a 3 port switch chip would have been fantastic (as long as the switch was booted in the sane deny all connections mode) as the switch could have taken easy care of switching packets on the same VLAN and brought in the SOC to handle inter VLAN stuff (Netgate's horrifically overpriced sg-1000 is essentially this).
     
    (At some point I'm really hoping someone combines an RK3328 with an ax88179 and a decent switch chip so that we can have a genuine dual nic gigabit routing device)

    Note to self, don't be stupid.
     
    On the plus side, both of my Orange Pi One boards now have working SPI0.  Want to guess why?
     
    Let's use my previous post to show how to do it right as that worked perfectly.  One might just make a note to remember to perform all of those actions *on the same board*.
     
    I'm going to go enjoy my working SPI and my stupidity.
     
    Thanks for all of the help, @zador.blood.stainedand @martinayotte.  Also, sorry for the grief.

    This depends on your boot script version and kernel/DT packages build date. I would recommend using both as new as possible (may require using a new image or manually upgrading the boot script). Serial console can be useful to spot any issues, but SPIdev overlays should work out of the box if they are loaded properly.

    Since Dallas Semiconductor strongly suggest to use 4K7 Pull-Up for OneWire bus, I wouldn't rely on weak internal Pull-Ups which one some SoC are greater than 30K, especially if there are multiple sensor on the same bus or if those have long wires.

    Here it's about board bring up. Which voltage is the SoC being fed with if no software started to control anything? Zero can switch between 1.1V and 1.3V but there's a default state when powering up and control is later turned over to software which then decides based on clockspeed which voltage to chose (remaining at 1.1V with lower clockspeeds and switching to 1.3V when exceeding 816MHz -- mainline -- or 912MHz -- legacy)
     
    Edit: to elaborate on that a bit (and to stand corrected if necessary and also to add stuff to @zador.blood.stained's TODO list  ):
     
    So the board's VDD_CPUX voltage is 1.3V when the board boots regardless of clockspeed set anywhere (what's happening when a 'reboot' has been issued before?). This should prevent any undervoltage issues at boot. Next step is booting u-boot, here a static cpufreq will be set (either u-boot default, IIRC 1008 MHz with sun8i, or in our case it's 480 MHz -- we chose this value since we prefer minimum consumption over boot duration) Next step is booting the kernel, with H2+/H3 legacy kernel here the userspace governor is set so the board remains at 480 MHz clockspeed while with mainline kernel schedutil governor takes over and results are not really predictable, at least now CPU cores might clock up to the highest limit allowed with sun8i dev kernel -- what's the value? 1296 MHz? -- and since DVFS is now active voltage starts to jump between 1.1V and 1.3V based on cpufreq) As soon as cpufreq-utils daemon is started it looks really weird since now we switch with legacy kernel from userspace to interactive governor while with mainline from schedutil to ondemand (everything ok, interactive is the better choice with legacy and we switched just recently to ondemand due to some strange reports regarding schedutil). From now on maximum cpufreq can be set by the user (h3consumption tool or /etc/defaults/cpufrequtils -- defaults for large H3 boards 1296MHz, for smaller H3 boards 1200 MHz and for NanoPi NEO/Air 912 MHz) DVFS settings switch voltage above 816MHz with mainline (since that's defined in official DT for Orange Pi One which we use for the Zero) and above 912MHz with legacy since after some extensive internal testing we don't give a sh*t about Allwinner's recommended defaults and let a few thousand Armbian H2+/H3 board users do some reliability testing in the field  
    For me personally questions 1 and 3 are interesting. What happens at reboot and what's maximum cpufreq with sun8i dev kernel before cpufrequtils daemon is loaded?
     
    And then I would propose to switch to userspace governor in sun8i dev kernel config too for obvious reasons (we discussed this back then when developing IoT settings for the smaller H3 boards and my tests revealed that boot times for the large boards aren't affected that much since their boot clockspeed in N° 2 above is 1008MHz and not 480MHz). Also I would prefer to switch voltages with mainline kernel on the primitive H3/H2+ board also above 912MHz and not 816MHz any more to get more test feedback for mainline DVFS implementation. But no need to hurry, opinions first!

    I pushed the patch so next nightly and packages in beta repository should have the fix.
    @willmore you'll have to extract the u-boot binary from the appropriate package (default for the legacy kernel or dev for the mainline kernel) and reflash the u-boot binary to the SD card. If this fixes the issue for you maybe MoeIcenowy should be pinged about this (since she is the maintainer for the OPi Zero u-boot defconfig)
     
    u-boot packages: u-boots-opizero.zip
     
    Edit: According to the schematic CPU on Zero should be powered with 1.3V by default, so it shouldn't be an undervoltage?
    Edit 2: At least my board is powered with 1.3V by default

    If you have some spare time, you could check the latency time between the FIFO fills, and also if CS is asserted during the whole large transfer, not only during the FIFO size of 64 bits.
