    Rock PI 4

    I bought here https://pishop.at/index.php/single-board-computer/rock-pi-4-model-b-4gb-detail with overall price (with shipment) €114.78 (504.44 PLN). I've seen the same model €105 from Spain without shipment...

    @Dante4 unfortunately there are some countries which they are not shipping to. Poland is one of them.

    @NicoD I will need to order heatsink. For now it is just a test board. I'll try not to heat it too much.

    My Rock Pi 4 B 4GB just arrived. Unluckily I don't have PSU for it yet.

    @martinayotte I am not asking about Armbian. I am asking about the mentioned OSes. I have Armbian on armv7l and it is 32-bit. At least provided binaries are 32-bit. I ask about bitness of the provided OSes for Rock Pi 4. There is no Armbian for this board.

    @martinayotte I am not asking for CPU bitness. I am asking if these OSes images are 64-bit!

    @hipboi I already have this one. I was asking if these are 64-bit or 32-bit...

    Thank you for the links! Are these 64-bit Debian/Ubuntu?

    @mboehmer Where did you get Debian for this board?
  12. Well, guys, I am just letting you know that: I will get my money back for Orange Pi RK3399 or just sell it as it does not meet my standards, that is it has USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0 and following the unresolved by support problems (Wi-Fi, Ethernet) I am rejecting this board as it does not comply with my needs I was interested in Firefly RK3399 which has no bugs like OPi RK3399 but will not currently invest money in it, however it seems like a great board Move my RPi 3 B+ in-house hosting to Virtual Private Server as I need more performance power So this is how ends my adventure with single-board computers. From now on I will be using them just for testing purposes. Anyway thank you all very much for help and comments. I appreciate your effort and wish you good luck in your battles with these quite fun parts of electronics.
  13. @chwe maybe some introduction: what are these abbreviations? BSP, DT, DTS, config file, defconfig file, dtsi.
  14. Well, not 90 days, but 30. Yes, for future I need to test the hardware in a shorter period of time and send it ASAP to get refund. In this case seller should act like a good EU company and just make a refund, not making any problems as they just did.
  15. @Igor that is another one reason to make the seller refund me. Nobody needs a hardware, when there is no proper software for it. If company wants to make hardware omitting software, then it should take responsibility for its actions. No more theory needed for that.
  16. @chwe @NicoD thank you guys, I really appreciate your effort. Board is in China so I have no possibility to move on. I'll let you know what will happen next. Maybe some Skype in night hours would be good for that, I'll let you know in a private message. I have CEST time here but willing to go over night to make the things work, as you will have time to help me. However support from seller is ready to help me giving ready solution, which I cannot accept. I was asking them for instructions, as I will reflash the board few times so their solution is not acceptable.
  17. @chwe OPi is at this moment at seller's place (China) awaiting AliExpress decision to make me a refund. If that will not work, I'll get the board from them and then I will have time to mess with it. Research that I have done tells me, that there are some files needed to run Wi-Fi and Ethernet as I expect, and they are files in the below folders: /system/etc/firmware/ /system/vendor/firmware/ I know that I've put some files in these folders and everything with Wi-Fi and Ethernet has began to work. However Wi-Fi was holding up the device after few hours of beign used and there was no possibility to run Ethernet at 1Gbps. I am not exactly interested in Armbian in that case, but I can flash it, if all the hardware will be working properly with it (CPU cores, eMMC speed, Wi-Fi, Ethernet). I can build the software, I have Windows and Linux on my PC, but I have no certainty that at 16.04 like version of ARM OS the Ethernet will work at 1Gbps which is crucial here for my appliance.
  18. @chwe I do not clearly understood what you have written here and what you are trying to achieve. Can you please elaborate more and explain what are you trying to say and achieve?
  19. @NicoD yes, you are right. I was convinced that in case of boards like RK3399 it will be the same as for RPi3B+ and previous - that the provided boards and software will be functioning properly out-of-the-box.
  20. @chwe you didn't understood what I've written here. You catch parts of my posts and complain about each one taken separately. Do understand the whole problem, not only parts of it! Then, after understanding the whole situation you are allowed to comply about the whole problem, not only parts of it. I won't be explaining further as normally thinking person would agree with me 100 times about the above and even didn't negotiate my undeniable right to get my money back. I understand that most of you here are engineers that like to mess with such hardware, but there are also rules of normal people trying to do sth with properly provided hardware and software - and this is what I am complaining here about - the provided software and specs of the hardware. Ask yourself these questions: provided software lacks properly working Wi-Fi and Ethernet - how long and how much effort will you give before you give up trying to make it work if you will be able to make it work (which is still unsure)? would you buy pendrive which lacks controller, because it is made for creating your own one? I've written that I need instructions for making Wi-Fi and Ethernet work on any provided OS, but I am not interested in on-board ready solution - did you read this part correclty and fully understood or are you just trolling me? It is still about points 3: a+b+c. There is such law which I was talking about, make a research, then comply about my right to get refund. About u-boot: I don't have time to mess with such low-level software, I need a board with given in specs functionalities and expect them to work. If the board does not comply with the specs - it is returned back and should be refunded - that's how EU world works and this is covered by international agreements. Users come with lower or higher levels of advancement in technology, with my 30-years experience I expect that provided hardware and software are using whole hardware abilities, and if they don't - there is no place for such hardware and software on the market - simple as that.
  21. @chwe My intention was not to rant the company, but warn potential buyers from making the same mistake. Yes, it is AliExpress and it is far after dispute possibility as the board I've bought about 3 months ago. I was fighting 2 months with the board and with the support to make things work as expected. Two weeks ago I've sent the board to support as they suspected hardware problem. It wasn't hardware problem. They offered me their own OS for the board - flashed by them - what destroys my expectation for this board to be applicable to my needs and violates the given 3 bullets list. There was no warranty given at the moment of order - that destroys all the trust to them and is first reason to not buy anything from them. If someone is selling sth, especially in computer engineering branch - he needs to take responsibility for it. Here we have "sold, money earned, GTFO client!". If company does not give any warranty and does not comply with EU regulations about international purchasing - then the company violates the law and should be prosecuted. I gave them my trust buying the hardware with specific parameters but they violated it by: 1. offering different specs - AliExpress is sensitive about that and I am fighting with company through them 2. having horrible support 3. not complying with normal market behaviors. I am not guilty here: I've ordered the hardware, it does not work as in specs, so I return the hardware and await for refund. I've not done anything wrong to be treated like that by this company.
  22. Shenzhen Xunlong Software CO.,Limited is not taking any responsibility for the boards they are selling. I am second week trying to get refund for sent for RMA board, but Steven Zhao - their support is still talking the same that they can fix the board in their own way, which is useless for me. I've made contact with this words: No mister, I'll explain: 1. The board should be in the same condition as I've sent it, so nearly new - nothing was done with the board crossing any normal usage boundaries. So the board is as new. There is no reason to treat it like a lower value hardware. 2. I don't expect unlimited service, I expect standard EU RMA which you should hold for at least one year from date of purchase (over 9 months from today to the future). Basing on RMA I've sent you the board to fix the problems. Only because of that. I was suspecting hardware problem but you said the hardware is ok. 3. I am not interested in your software, as of these reasons: a) it is a security risk - I don't know what you will flash to the board - I need to do it myself b) I would not be able to flash anything if the board system hangs up and can't be started, because I will lost you work concerning Wi-Fi and Ethernet c) I would need to send you the board each time the board stops working from software reasons to make Wi-Fi and Ethernet work again 4. I've already told you what instructions I need - on email and in messages here. You still didn't read them and you need to go through them as many times as is possible till you understand what I need. 5. Software on the board was downloaded from your website - images given of operating system Debian and Ubuntu - they remain nearly unchanged on the board and with them the Wi-Fi can't work more than few hours and Ethernet can't work at 1Gbps. So if this is your software - I've already told you: sent instructions how to make these two (Wi-Fi, Ethernet) elements work on provided by you images of operating systems (too old for today Ubuntu 16.04 from year 2016). 6. I don't accept "ready on the board" solution because of point 3 - this is a security risk and I would not be able to flash any other firmware without losing your job done on the board to make things work. And this is why I am demanding refund, as you said - you can't fix it in the way normal engineer would expect to. Board with prepared by you firmware is useless for me - look point 3 a+b+c above. Still they refuse to make a refund.
  23. It is about 3 months as I am contacting support for this board. They can't make the board Wi-Fi work for longer time (more than few hours) and Ethernet at 1Gbps. The support guy Steven is so stupid, that he is not reading any of my messages and trying to force their solution to load software to the board and return it back to me. Which is a security issue and I will have no possibility to load any other software in the future even if the board will stop responding. This support and all around this board is so useless that is getting me pissed off and nervous. If you want a nicely working board please buy anything else than RK3399 Orange Pi.
  24. This would be not a bad idea, if the SD card wouldn't be few times slower than the eMMC. As I have good SD card, exactly microSD, it does not give reasonable speeds on this board. 20MB/s for linear read is not enough. eMMC is giving me 200MB/s in average. I suspect that OS is too old to provide faster speed for this SD card. If it is possible to run it faster. I am not enough advanced about these boards to mess with u-boot.
