  1. Hello All, While we haven't had a chance yet to post a job posting for it but we are looking for a graphical designer to help us revamp some of the Armbian logos as well as help design a skin for the upcoming graphical Armbian Configurator interface based on QT5. We are happy to discuss realistic hourly rates (keeping in mind we have a limited budget) if you are not able to volunteer your time, though would also accept those who are able to donate or volunteer their time as well. There is currently no deadlines set for this work, so we can work with volunteers on a time schedule that works best for them, as long as they are dedicated to getting the work completed in a reasonable time. If you are interested in helping, please feel free to reach out to me in direct message or reply here and I will follow-up with you by message! Thanks everyone! Cheers!
  2. I love it when creators find a fun or new way to use Armbian:
  3. Here is another great one for beginners....on how to install Armbian desktop:
  4. Hello Everyone! Recently @NicoD has been helping to release some videos on the Armbian community as well he usually keeps up with reviewing and documenting single board computers. This got me thinking it would probably be awesome to have a central place to document Armbian related videos and documentation that exists. I will try to post any good Armbian related channels or videos my self, but I would invite anyone else who would like to contribute to this thread as well! Are you a creator that loves Armbian and has made some videos about it?? Let us know and share here! To get things started I will include NicoD's most recent videos: This video is about an important Armbian community member which if you have been around the forum for any period of time you have probably heard from, or in some cases, had to deal with Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule @Wernerto do the video! Additionally, NicoD has just released a video on the Rock 5b including some benchmarks: NicoD had reached out and asked if he could give the new Rock 5b sample I had received for a spin, and well... I couldn't say no! Great job breaking things down NicoD! Well those are the two I will start out with, if this thread takes off I will try and update it with many more videos! If anyone wants to see more pictures of the crafty case I made for the Rock 5b, let me know and I can attach them in this thread Cheers all!
  5. Hello Everyone! Just wanted to check back and say that so far the first two community voice chats have been a lot of fun with more people showing than we originally expected! I know that the currently set time is a bit more difficult for our European friends to make, though it has been difficult to come up with a time that would be better that would fit everyone. The current time corresponds with the end of business day in the Eastern timezone where, so far, the bulk of our participants have been from. It may be possible to make it an hour earlier or so, but would be interested to hear from the community on if you guys think there would be a better time in general? We will continue with the Friday 5:00 PM Eastern time this week, but if we can come to an agreement on a better time before next week, we can move it to the new time. Look forward to seeing you all there! Cheers!
  6. Hey Everyone! Last week we tried out doing a community Discord get together on Friday night and it went really well! We are going to try and do the same thing again this week on July 1st, 2022 at 5:00 PM EST. Everyone is invited, just come to the Armbian Discord (You can click our invite link: here if you are not already part of our Discord) and on Friday evening at 5:00 PM EST we will open up the public voice chat for all who would like to participate. The meet-up will last 1 hour and there are no official topics set for the conversation, of course, if you have something fun to share that is always welcome! Hope to see you there! Cheers!
  7. What’s New: All board images have been rebuilt due to corruption found in certain images Fixed Orange Pi 3 LTS bluetooth support Added board images for Orange Pi 4 LTS Upgraded bootloader to 22.04 for Rockchip family boards How can you help? Time: For those who want to contribute time, please consider becoming a board Maintainer of one of the many boards that Armbian supports. Money: For those who can help monetarily, please consider making a donation. To see the full release changelog, please visit: Release Changelog The full release can be read: here
  8. Can you actually attach a USB TTL serial adapter and look to see if there are any specific errors with the EMMC being loaded? Usually this type of issue indicates a change in u-boot, not the image it's self. It would seem like maybe a change to the dtb was made that has somehow disabled the emmc. With a little research you can probably pull the u-boot off of an older image and stick it on a new one to test or you can use an older image and upgrade it. Lastly you could manually build u-boot your self and add it to the new image. And yes, a lot of these things are a moving target since there are a lot of boards in Rockchip64 and it appears as updates are made for the family, some of the fixes break other things. I know the developers have been fighting with some of this. In general though, as long as the emmc is enabled in dtb there should be no reason you can't write to and boot from the emmc. my 2 cents. Cheers!
  9. Hello Jose, While I don't have a direct answer for you, maybe I can get you going in the right direction. I believe the following forum post documents a good portion of what you are wanting to do: In your case the most simplistic approach would be to manually rotate the image it's self and replace boot.bmp in /boot on the board, I believe (don't quote me). Give it a go and let us know if this helps you with your issue. Cheers!
  10. Hello, Thanks for reporting this, it should now be resolved. Please do let us know if you see any further issues. Cheers!
  11. Hello @mcfo Thanks for your interest in Armbian! We are currently working on making changes to allow for more (internal) man hours to be spent on reviewing and updating things like Distrowatch, providing more regular updates to our media partners and working with the community to help improve Armbians public facing image. We always welcome help from our community and I would be happy to discuss with you your ideas on how we can more proactively provide announcements and updates to media outlets (such as Distrowatch) and/or how you could help Armbian in this aspect. Please feel free to drop me a private message and we can discuss this in more detail. I hope to pick up and work more actively on issues like this for Armbian, so maybe we could find a way to work together on this issue? Cheers!
  12. @piter75 anything I can do to influence you to spend some more time on the RockPi 4c, namely: - Getting all 4 USB ports working on legacy image - Getting mini-DP port working on legacy and / or mainline kernel @TonyMac32already did a good bit of poking and testing at patching mini-DP in mainline for RockPi 4c and I have been helping test as possible. If you get some time to poke at this I am happy to test things (am on IRC ( [TheBug] ) or you can PM me here anytime and I will be happy to test things, have one on my desk). Also, a friend of mine also has one and I can have him test as well if you let me know. I am happy to put some type of bounty either to be donated to Armbian or to your beer fund to get this pushed up the list a bit... I got at least 30$ on it Cheers!
  13. Hey Werner, I went ahead and escalated this issue to Innoscale's NOC and they have been reviewing things this afternoon. It looks like at this time the NOC has pushed out some new routes which looks to have helped to resolve the loss being seen there and causing latent loading of the forum / site. Can you test a bit and let us know if things still continue to see issue via IPv6? I will sub to this so that and updates come to my inbox and can be addressed. Have a great day! Regards, TheBug
