  1. As seeing on The new RPi 3+ eat much power than the previous one, and following first law of thermodynamics all the energy supplied (in absence of moving parts) becomes heat. Sorry, @tkaiser but I buy one new RPi3+ and I can confirm the SoC run colder but the whole board is warmer than previous RPi.
  2. I try Arch several years ago ... and is hard to learn all the different CLI commands!
  3. O__O kernel 4.15.11 nice to know ... I'm a Debian and derivates user but maybe try Arch to bring a new kernel to my ODROID-U3 is a big idea. Thanks!!!
  4. Yes!!! and now @balbes150 is moving to kernel 4.9.40
  5. Congratulations. No idea about the GPIO and LED control. Maybe is a good idea to open a new thread only for the LED issue.
  6. I didn't look for a backup solution. I ripped one of the MXQ Android and keep the other one. Please post here the solution if you finally find it.
  7. I can't remember all the options, but I think "armbian-config" has a switch to go directly to the Desktop or not. And "nodm" must be properly configured see:
  8. In the first link you can find more info (I never config my Orange Pi in this way) including this link
  9. These are my MXQ Related to the performance of the OS, the system go quite well in my MXQ PRO PLUS (2GB RAM) but have micro freezes or hang for 1 second every minute in MXQ PRO (1GB RAM). I flashed Ubuntu Mate and Debian Server. But the image installed to the eMMC is Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20171226.img.xz To install in the eMMC I use the option in armbian-config tool. You can launch from Terminal with: sudo armbian-config I can't remember where it is exactly in
  10. I have another MXQ Pro Plus 4K and works quite well. I flashed finally Linux in eMMC memory. Normally the system must start in graphic mode but asking for an user and password. If you want to go straight to the Desktop you must install "nodm" ( sudo apt install nodm ) and maybe remove "lightdm". I don't have any flickering or video issues. Regards
  11. Use the info in this post More precisely this: And this:
  12. Better way. You can count on me to try with S905X in MXQ Pro and pro plus.
  13. This picture is mine, but published by @tkaiser Is a pogo pin or sprig loaded, not a switch, it can be used to connect with a flat antenna in the cover of the box like the showed in the picture from this link:
  14. Yes. SD formatter 4 and 3, and under Win10 and MacOS. My cards are now in the house, I hope this mystery can be resolved.
  15. I'm not talking about eMMC is about "bricking" microSD and SD cards ... but this is supposed to be impossible !!!
  16. Finally testing the new kernel image Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Debian_stretch_4.9.40_xfce_20180204.img. on MXQ Pro with SoC S905X This board run quite well with kernel 3.14.29 I post the errors triying to update the system if can be interesting
  17. I think has spawned a monster They are breaking many SD cards, maybe is time to recommend other tools to flash armbian.
  18. @guidol Any help or idea about enable my MXQ PRO "bizarre" Wi-Fi chips? SV6051P TAB1723 BMT84 and HS2734A V15628 98MA SV6051P TAB1723 BMT84 HS2734A V15628 98MA Thanks.
  19. In the first post there is a minimal mistake related to the commands needed to activate Wi-Fi.
  20. OK. Thanks for the help, because I am driving crazy thinking I'm loosing my memory (inside my head).
  21. OK, I can't remember but maybe I do following blindly the instructions! Thanks a million @balbes150 and @Moklev
