  1. Thank you, I should probably update you that I was successful in using the expansion pins to hookup a camera to my OctoPrint controller running on my OPi Zero. It works great and keeps the board size very small vs having to use the expansion card.

  3. I have one of the 1 GB Renegade SBC's and have played around with it a bit using the Ubuntu image supplied on the Firefly forums. I don't know enough about the base system or how it was created to be of much help in that regard but if anybody wants to take me under their wing so to speak, I'd be happy to offer my assistance. I really want a good system that will get mainline updates before I try to deploy this SBC as a NAS at my home.
  4. I realize this thread is quite old but I'm not finding the answer on any of my searches already - please redirect me if I'm wrong: Is it possible to use the pair of USB header pins already present on the OPi Zero board without connecting the expansion board? I.E. can I connect a USB webcam to the pins and have it work? From what I've found so far, I think this should be possible but I'm not sure and would rather not fry my board just on a whim. . . Thank you
  5. Thank you for the criticism regarding the board bring up process, this was unknown to me. I don't have any further information regarding this board aside from what is publicly available as this is not my area of expertise. My hope was to begin the discussion and offer my assistance where I can. FWIW, I do have this board and am more than willing to loan it out / assist with testing where possible. Your thoughts on it not being of much interest may be true but I disagree personally. While it doesn't provide GbE, it does offer the USB 3.0 port so expansion possibilities are there. I've tested the stock Android image from Orange Pi with a USB 3.0 hub / GbE combo adapter and it worked great allowing me to mount several USB sticks and provided GbE networking I have not yet tested throughput on the GbE adapter using this board but previous iperf tests on other devices put it at about 900 Mbit/s. My personal goal for this board is to use it as a media player on my TV so ultimately, a working Android image is all I need but considering it's low price and USB 3.0 line, I think having Armbian support for this board would be a great option for others.

  7. I first came to Armbian because I wanted a board that the RPF couldn't supply, namely a 5 port gigabit router type board to replace an aging DD-WRT router I'd been using. This lead me to the Banana Pi BPI-R1 and after trying various distro's on it, I ultimately settled on using Armbian. Now I no longer have that board having retired it for a different system due to performance issues but I continue to buy and use various SBC's and always use Armbian when I can. It's familiar, fast, and gives me all the features I need without any bloat or preconfigured assumptions on software I should use. I really like using SBC's in place of gigantic, power-hungry PC systems whenever and wherever I can as they are so much more cost effective to use. The power savings alone have paid for several Orange Pi systems around my house. I can mold these tiny computers to fit my will and stash them all over the house to perform any task I see fit! Mwuhahaha!
  8. Just a quick note to say thank you to the Developers for all that you do and have done to make our favorite Arm Linux Distro a success! My only wish is that you guys supported Raspberry Pi's, lol!
