    @guidol: Does the boot-stability improve, when you replace build/patch/u-boot/u-boot-sunxi/add-sunvell-r69.patch with the attached file (reduces DRAM clck to 408)?
    If stability improves, could you copy the OS to eMMC via armbian-config and check boot-stability?

    Mainline kernel vers. 4.14.17 also works quite well (supporting eth, wifi, both usb-ports, emmc, ir, audio, ...). You could build it yourself with the armbian build system (https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/)
    # git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/armbian/build # cd build # ./compile.sh BOARD=sunvell-r69 for media stuff you better stay with the legacy kernel though ...

    My OPi one+ arrived. I burned the ubuntu image with etcher and it worked fine. I had to manually resize the fs but you expect a few rough edges with a new board.
    The bare board runs on the hot side, idling at a reported (but unconfirmed) 48C. Benchmarks quickly push it into throttling at 70C, but even so it is faster (just) than any of my other 4 core boards. I'll add a heatsink and fan and see if I can get the temps under control. If so, and if the board remains reliable it seems like excellent value for money. The H6 looks very promising.

    guidol reacted to Igor in Debian Builds for Orange Pi Win in the pipeline?   
    Ubuntu is Debian based, but the main difference is packages selection and their versions. Since we also define the package base, most of the packages are the same but they are certainly not the same version. This means certain application might not work out of the box and you need to solve dependencies on your own. This can be simple or a true nightmare. In this case, it's better to start with a proper base, whether Ubuntu or Debian. One good example is OMV - it does not work at all on Ubuntu - at least not out of the box. Stable version requires Debian Jessie, while current development is based on Stretch. For a board, which might be used as OMV (Helios4), we provide both, Jessie and Stretch and it's up to the user to decide which OMV version he will go for.
    In the x86 world, a change between releases/distribution is usually also on a kernel branch, while here we don't have this luxury. We have to use what is available and since there is no better working kernel than 3.10.y for this board we simply can't provide Stretch. We could Jessie ... but since we provide a simple and easy to use build tools, this is not that urgent either.

    Great job that you tried to do this.  As you can see there are still a lot of obvious problems and mainline is not yet useful on this board. Not even for simple cases since its lack of network support. Wens made progress on this, so you can try even more complex job by adding few of those patches to userpatches/kernel/sunxi-next and recompile the kernel. Monitor debug/patching, adjust patches if necessary ... Patch is downloaded from Github by adding .patch to the commit URL, for example:

    guidol reacted to adrb in OrangePi Zero, mainline kernel, SPI LCD + touchscreen   
    It's simple guide, presenting how to setup LCD (ili9431) with integrated touchscreen (tsc2046) on mainline kernel (4.11). It may be not fully "armbian way", since I'm pretty new in armbian
    In case that somebody is interested, I recently bought couple those displays from here
    Few basic informations:
    1. OrangePiZero has two SPI buses. First one is usually occupied by build in memory. So we can only use bus1
    2. tsc2046 chip is fully compatible with ads7846, and we have drivers for it since years now
    3. Maximum clock frequency for ads7846 is 3.25Mhz, but don't expect that it will work with that.  Reasonable value is something beetween 0.5-2Mhz. Lower frequency, if you observing misbehavior.
    4. Probably most important information  ili9431 and tsc2046 poorly cooperate on shared bus. I don't know exactly why, because I don't have access to logic analyzer,  but it's proven fact (at least on my equipment). You have to lower bus frequency to 2MHz (highest common value), and even then it work very unstable.  My educated guess is that, missed interrupt from touchscreen (when SPI is busy with sending data to LCD) makes it stop making further attempts to communicate. Or maybe there is some incompatibility on electrical level, I really don't know.
    5. My electrical setup (keep in mind it's 3.3V)
    OPIZ - LCD (ili9431)
    PA13 - CS
    PA14 - SCK
    PA16 - SDO
    PA15 - SDI
    PA03 - DC
    PA00 - RESET
    PA06 - controls transistor which is driving current to LCD pin. You may also connect LCD pin to VCC, and leave PA06 floating.
    And here is part for touchscreen. We are going to use emulated spi bus with bitbang. At this point bitbang isn't compiled in armbian kernel - we will take care of this later.
    OPIZ - LCD (tsc2046)
    PA10 - T_CS
    PA18 - T_IRQ
    PA19 - T_CLK
    PA11 - T_DIN
    PA12 - T_DO
    Configuration for the first spi bus:
    Configuration for touchscreen driver:
    Compile and add those DTS with "armbian-add-overlay" command.
    Next, download armbian sources and cross compile kernel - without any modifications, just to make sure that everything is compiling without issues:
    # mkdir armbian # cd armbian # git clone https://github.com/armbian/build.git # git clone https://github.com/igorpecovnik/lib # cp lib/compile.sh . # ./compile.sh BRANCH=dev BOARD=orangepizero KERNEL_ONLY=yes PROGRESS_DISPLAY=plain RELEASE=jessie Enable required modules :
    echo "CONFIG_SPI_BITBANG=m" >> lib/config/kernel/linux-sun8i-dev.config echo "CONFIG_SPI_GPIO=m" >> lib/config/kernel/linux-sun8i-dev.config ... and recompile kernel, then install deb packages from output directory. You may also copy drivers, it may be faster for testing but it's not advised for "serious" deployment.
    Loading modules at startup:
    # cat > /etc/modprobe.d/fb_ili9341.conf << _EOF_ options fbtft_device custom name=fb_ili9341 gpios=dc:3,reset:0,led:6 speed=16000000 busnum=1 _EOF_ # echo fbtft_device >> /etc/modules # echo ads7846 >> /etc/modules If you connected LED pin to VCC, then you should omit that ",led:6" in configuration above. 
    I hope that this will help anyone who want to connect LCD display and build simple touchscreen based Orange Pi Zero terminal

    Its a VT100-Webpage-Terminal on a ESP8266-Microcontroller which opens a Accesspoint.
    You could connect via this VT100-Webpage-Terminal to the TTL-Port of the ESP8266.
    TTL-Connection is done (like allways in TTL-Connections) with RX,TX and GND
    I connected my Orange Pi R1 via TTL and 115200 Baud and could "work" at a (max.) Terminal-Size of 80x25
    (80x25 is max. in the downloadable binary - if you do compile by yourself mor is possible.... 132x50 would be fine )
    So if you have a misconfigured Network-Connection (missed the /24 in the IP of the server in nmtui) and you dont want to use a USB-serial-Dongle because every Dongle wats its own driver  - here a second solution
