    Orangepi zero plus2 H3 (4.19.20)

    I have been having the same problem for a number of images, I ended up having to add a user patch to use the uboot in May.
  2. Thanks to everyone for the work here, so if you use armbian-add-overlay on the created file below, it should just work in the future. usbotg2host.dts
  3. Alternatively, you could use a usb to ethernet connector, this would give you network (my user build next works just fine and boots - I just did it today).

    [Experiment] armbian on NanoPi A64

    That's right analog sound seems available (as shown by /proc/asound/cards) when using a pine64 5.70 next image with nanopi a64 but no sound ever comes out of the connection, wifi does work.

    BananaPi M2+, how to Overlayfs ?

    I haven't, but you may want to try this aufs blog post: https://superuser.com/questions/833576/differences-of-aufs-unionfs-and-overlayfs-from-each-other

    Orange Pi PC - A disaster ?

    If you add anything crappy to your system, your system would become crappy because it is contagious. I always baby mine and they provide me with joy.

    SPI issue on BananaPi M2 (sun6i)

    Still has SPI 110 errors, but seems less frequent on 4.19.y, double spi and analog audio still works.

    Small monochrome displays

    Wouldn't you opt for an oled display instead, brighter, smaller, and higher resolution for fifty cents more? And its using only 4 lines, sample usage:

    Recommended SBC below 20USD range.

    Here are some of my SBCs that are under $20 (see photo below). I have divided them into two categories, with hdmi and not. The ones on the left are without, and on the right are with. The ones without are mostly orangepi's and nanopi's. Just do a search on their web sites and if it is under $20, I have it. One thing to consider is the ones with two spi channels (e.g. nanopi core 1 - note core 2 is better but its over $20), this would allow connecting two spi screens. If you connect two relatively big 3.2 ili9341 screens, with the browser stretched across them, your experience would still suffer but it would be okay in some extreme situations. The ones with hdmi include, raspberrypi zero w (double spi), nanopi A64 (double spi), pcduino4 nano (double spi), nanopi m1 - same as pcduino4 nano (double spi), and the other three orangepi's. Bananapi zero is slightly over $20, I have it connected to a lap dock. Of these, the best is pcduino4 nano (get it on ebay between $5 to $16), supported well in software (armbian), and nanopi a64 ($19.99?) is my second choice, software support is getting there (may be?), at least double spi works with pine64 image (latest kernel). Raspberrypi Zero W is only $5 from my local store, and dual spi screen with camera works, you really can't beat it in price.

    Banana Pi Zero

    CSC supported is just as great as any other boards. The only thing I could not get working is hdmi sound, wifi works fine, both spi channels work fine - but not as well as other boards (more 110 errors), perhaps hardware related? I use it as a laptop with my lap dock, and a bluetooth dongle for sound.

    Mini handheld linux console :)

    You could easily do that with any SBC discussed in this forum, e.g. k1plus dual screen + bluetooth keyboard, or a zero plus 2 h5, 5 inch hdmi + bluetooh keyboard, or a pi zero with double 18650 batteries and a 2.4" screen
  12. The issue is question is missing spidev argument: param_spidev_spi_bus=0 I can confirm spi_spidev works in 4.17.11. But I could not get other user device tree overlays to work properly in 4.17.11.
