  1. That seems very expensive, it’s clearly designed as a dev platform and not for general use so from that perspective it’s maybe not too bad IoT companies like ours might see it as a nice dev platform (but we can getter better for cheaper already). I’m not sure it has the right price or form factor to see any production use and therefore enough sales to pay for itself and be a long term option
  2. @chwe I used the Linux rkflashtool to poke the Android image but one of my guys has done it with the windows tool too. I seem to remember some maskrom limitations of the Linux tool but I can’t remember what at the minute. I’m on my way home from Germany at the min but I will have a look tonight and tell you what I did. I was planning to have a go at it tomorrow I did build a partially functional system using RKs own uboot, kernel and buildroot with only minor changes in June. When I retried using master branch from August the kernel was broken and I didn’t have the enthusiasm to f
  3. Domain Name: IX.IO Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.101domain.com Updated Date: 2018-09-20T07:04:58Z DNS servers have been changed today, probably just waiting for propagation although it should have happened by now. If you query against NS1.CHUNKHOST.COM instead of google DNS the domain is valid and active and you will see what the new records are. Strangely despite the change happening several hours ago there has been no propagation to any other major DNS systems
  4. I think the RK glamour xserver module has lead you down the wrong path. It has nothing to do with 3D acceleration and needs to be used with RKs customised xserver, it won’t work with a standard Ubuntu xserver. I would forget about glamour 2D acceleration, it doesn’t add much functionality and causes a lot of instability problems Can you do an “armbianmonitor -u” and paste the output url? You basically need to match the versions of kernel and userspace (libmali) code and make sure you have selected a version of libmali with the functionality you want. They don’t need to
  5. Try pre configuring the image and network with a static IP before boot There is a simple script in dev that will do that here: https://github.com/botfap/armbian-image-config git clone https://github.com/botfap/armbian-image-config.git cd armbian-image-config For Ethernet: sudo ./armbian-image-config armbian-image.img e|ethenet [dhcp|static] [ipaddr mask] [gw] [dns] e.g. sudo ./armbian-image-config armbian-image.img ethernet static 10.0.0.50 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.254 9.9.9.9 mynet.lan For Wifi: sudo ./armbian-image-config armbian-image.img w|wifi [dh
  6. Can you try setting the connection details and IP address manually in your image before boot? Does it still not connect? If your device has been randomizing mac addresses, then your DHCP pool may have run out of addresses, even though it doesn't list them as used If you run tcpdump on the dhcp box can you see any DHCP negotiation traffic?
  7. The armbian-image-config script is pretty much done, I'm about to push it to github but thought I best check a couple of things first with people who are more knowledgeable about Armbian than me Apart from sudo netdev audio video dialout plugdev input bluetooth systemd-journal and ssh, are there any other groups that you want the user adding to? What files need deleting or modifying after initial setup but before 1st reboot? (/root/.not_logged_in_yet, ~/Xauthority) For debugging 1st reboot problems, is there any interesting info outside of /var/log? (assuming log2ram i
  8. I think its best to stop posting until you actually have something legitimate to post about. You constantly posting the same false messages doesn't help you, it just makes you look like a liar and damages not only your own reputation but the reputation of your employer. The law around the GPL is relatively straightforward and reasonably well tested in the law courts. You constantly pretending that the law doesn't apply to you is only pushing potential customers away The facts are simple; that you have a legal obligation to release the code when you release the software or product.
  9. As for the armbian-image-config https://github.com/botfap/armbian-image-config Tool to pre-configure basic system settings on Armbian images. Each module can be used independently on an image but using the same module twice will overwrite not combine any changes. This tool needs superuser permissions to mount and write to system files on disk images, you will need to run it with sudo or in a root shell armbian-image-config armbian-image.img module [options] modules: n|hostname [mynewhostname] e|ethernet [dhcp|static] [ipaddr mask] [gw] [dns] [search] w|wifi
  10. @lrrr I like the concept but its too complicated and doesn't provide what people seem to be looking for which is a way to quickly edit the settings on the sd card from a windows pc @tkaiser @Igor Thats a whole different conversation. Let me get this tool finished tonight / tomorrow as its become useful to me and others and then lets have a conversation about that. While 80% of the functionality of what you seem to be asking for is implemented in my tool, integrating that with the existing first boot is a very different task. Im happy to have a look at creating such a s
  11. I feel left out but it’s 2:30am and the fanciest action in my kitchen is a Molotov cocktail
  12. You can flash it with a standard USB A-A cable in the USB3 A port From what I could work out at the time, the designs were all the same but the swapped ram, emmc, wifi and others between productions runs based on whatever was cheapest / available. All the different branded / cased boxes appear to share this board with some variant of peripherals
  13. Yes I pre loaded an android 7.1 image for the H96 max. I didn't test your actual board but I tested a few and android booted straight up after a 3 min black screen. You might have to zero the first 4M of the eMMC to force SD boot or I think there may be a reset button behind the audio port. On the serial console side, I think it may switch uart's when the bootloader starts but Im not 100% sure, it was a while ago and I see a lot of different boards I have discovered I have 3 different revisions of the board (dark blue, light blue and green pcb's) mfg in 2017-11, 2017-08, 2017-06.

  14. Did it boot in android? Did you check the hardware was as listed? Also is there a 2nd uart header on the board? I seem to remember there being 2 serial headers but I may be wrong
