  1. Nothing was connected. You are supposed to run command flashrom -p linux_spi:dev=/dev/spidev0.0,spispeed=512 with nothing connected. And if it returns Calibrating delay loop... OK. No EEPROM/flash device found. Note: flashrom can never write if the flash chip isn't found automatically. then there is a chance that spi works on the computer. Like I wrote, on the raspberry pi 0 it returns Using clock_gettime for delay loops (clk_id: 1, resolution: 1ns). No EEPROM/flash device found Still the raspberry pi 0 was able to flash the flashchip.
  2. How you can test if spi will work. On libreboot's homepage this test command is displayed: ./flashrom -p linux_spi:dev=/dev/spidev0.0,spispeed=512 It should return Calibrating delay loop... OK. No EEPROM/flash device found. Note: flashrom can never write if the flash chip isn't found automatically. ./flashrom -p linux_spi:dev=/dev/spidev0.0,spispeed=512 does not work on the raspberry pi 0 and orange pi one. It returns No such file or directory flashrom -p linux_spi:dev=/dev/spidev0.0,spispeed=512 returns Using clock_gettime for delay loops (clk_id: 1, resolution: 1ns). No EEPROM/flash device found. Note: flashrom can never write if the flash chip isn't found automatically. on both the raspberry pi 0 and orange pi one. Since the raspberry pi 0 can flash the flashchip of a thinkpad t400 then maybe the orange pi one also can flash it. Because both return the same message from flashrom -p linux_spi:dev=/dev/spidev0.0,spispeed=512
  3. Thank you. After I corrected the code, it might work. Command sudo ls -l /dev/spi* returns crw------- 1 root root 153, 0 jan 30 /dev/spidev0.0 Are there commands such that you can verify if spi has set? mosi miso ceo_n sclk On a raspberry pi 0 command sudo ls -l /dev/spi* returns crw-rw----1 root spi 153, 0 jan 30 /dev/spidev0.0 crw-rw----1 root spi 153, 1 jan 30 /dev/spidev0.1 On orange pi one it says crw. On raspberry pi 0 it says crw-rw. A raspberry pi 0 can flash the flashchip of a thinkpad t400. Can the orange pi one do it, if the orange pi one's spi says crw and not crw-rw?
  4. I installed newest armbian buster having version 5.4.14-sunxi. Is that current or not legacy? Armbianenvtxt is verbosity=1 logo=disabled console=both disp_mode=1920x1080p60 overlay_prefix=sun8i-h3 rootdev=UUID= rootfstype=ext4 overlays=spi-spidev param_spinor_spi_bus=0 usbstoragequirks= It does not work. Command sudo ls -l /dev/spi* returns ls: cannot access '/dev/spi*': No such file or directory On raspberry pi you enable spi this way https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/spi/README.md
  5. orange pi one armbian buster purged non free software I installed flashrom. In sudo armbian-config -> system settings -> toogle hardware I marked spi-spidev. Saved. Restarted computer. /dev/spi* displays nothing. How can I enable spi in armbian? Thank you.
  6. https://components101.com/sites/default/files/component_pin/Beaglebone-Black-Pinout.png I could not find a picture numbering the pins on an orange pi one. Up right pin by the arrow is pin1, pin below pin1 is pin2 and pin left to pin1 is pin3. http://www.orangepi.org/images/orangepione_info.jpg I want to use an orange pi one to install libreboot on a thinkpad t400's flashchip. Which of the following pins on the beaglebone black's p9 corresponds to which pins on the orange pi one? beaglebone black pin 17 -> ? 18 -> ? 21 -> ? 22 -> ? gnd -> ? 3.3v -> ? How much ampere can the 3.3v pin on the orange pi one provide? The orange pi one's psu is 5v and 4a. Thank you.
  7. Which is fastest and how much faster? The h3 or a64? Thank you.
  8. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/11857-free-software-supported-wifi-card-phone-usable-esp8089-esp8266-esp32/ It says, that adding an usb ar9271 wifi card to a pinephone is not feasible because the wifi card uses to much power. How much power is acceptable for an usb ar9271 wifi card to use? I do not have extended equipment. I made the following arrangement. One pc. Connected an usb power meter. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61fKDfC3pgL._AC_SL1000_.jpg Connected an usb ar9271 wifi card to the usb power meter. Started an youtube video. After that downloaded an ubuntu image. Distance to router about 10yards. One brick wall. Usb power meter displayed about 5.1v and 0.16a. Is that much? To much to use on a pinephone? The modem on the pinephone has an usb connection. About the modem, why is the power consumption not a problem? I know connecting an usb ar9271 wifi card to a samsung i9100 replicant phone is working terrible. Infrequent disconnects, battery power level has to be above 90%. Thanks.
  9. Is it? armbian-config -> system -> nightfly Then system -> default Thank you.
  10. You were right. I bought a sd card and the computer works.
  11. Yes, they believe they have selected the best available hardware regarding what can get achieved free software wise. Replicant itself is free software. Newest piece of information is, the replicant person got it wrong. The display on the pinephone does not require non free software to run. Similar to the ec on a libreboot computer? The modem on the pinephone has an usb connection to the main cpu. Replicant wants to apply usb guard knowing it might have no effect.
  12. Can you be more specific or are you suggesting I write and ask redpinesignals?
  13. It this similar to the ec on a libreboot computer? I agree it is unacceptable if we do not get access to the source code. But by fsf's respect your freedom definition it does not matter because the device cannot receive updates or it cannot get on the internet.
  14. For my part I think as free as it gets is an option which should be taken. It builds knowledge such that if hardware able to run entirely on free software gets on the market then it will likely be easier to prepare the software which we want. You cannot software wise tweak the wifi card to use less power? Shorter range for smaller power consumption? I wrote bunnie if he new about a free software wifi card suitable for a phone? He did not. This was his answer. solution to the closed firmware problem has been to firewall the wifi chip behind a controller. Basically, we consider everything inside the wifi chip to be insecure. It's conceptually the same assumption as saying the access point is insecure, but with a perimeter slightly closer to the phone. This does mean we are burning extra hardware on a dedicated firewall CPU to manage the wifi chip. It's not the ideal solution, Fyi. A replicant manager wrote, that maybe the display of the pinephone requires non free software to work. People on pinephone's irc did not know what he was referring to. If it requires non free software then a pinephone replicant port is not an option. Apparently replicant will get a pinephone and then will have to test the phone. About the listed hardware in posts here. Pinephone says, people can join in how the phone is going to be build.
