    NicoD got a reaction from gounthar in Board Bring Up Station P1 rk3399, M1 rk3328   
    That's a good idea. I'll see what tool is best used in Android to burn the image. I've never used android for it, but since people with P1/M1 certainly have Android it is a great idea.
    I've got a video planned where I show a full installation of Armbian Buster Legacy. I can start it in Android. I'll make the video when my NVMe hat arrives. Thanks for the idea. I wouldn't have thought about it. 

    p.s. I've got a Mecool KM6 with S905X4 to review Android 10 on it. I don't suppose there will be Armbian for this? Just asking so I don't say anything wrong. 
    I like the box, but I can't get used to Android. For watching video it's ok, but for productivity tasks it is bad.

    NicoD reacted to Werner in Boredom wins: Nanopi R4S custom fan hat   
    Mostly because I was bored and for self-educational purpose I desigend a custom fan hat for the Nanopi R4S.
    Planned to mill it from 2mm aluminum.
     
    As reference I created a heavily simplified version of the board (4GB version) using the provided 2D drawing from Friendlyarm.

    I checked the Renegade Elite hat on Station P1. 
    Connected (with some additional steps), everything worked. NVMe is visible and can be used for system placement or other needs. But there is a nuance with the physical placement of the hat. I had to remove the WiFi antenna connector and add an insulator to the plane of the power connector, it touches the hat at the location of the POE elements. Also, because of this, it will not be possible to insert the hat contacts completely, to the full depth. And you need to replace the racks with lower ones, the regular ones are too high.

    For TV boxes, there is no official Armbian, so there is no point in wasting time on this, on each TV box, the process will be different and users will be tormented by questions about why they do not find the elements that you will tell about.

    @NicoD Can you shoot a video on how to download and burn an Armbian image to an SD card using only a regular Android on P1 ? I. e. I am interested in a video how to run Armbian with only P1. This instruction allows any user, without any additional devices (PC, laptop, etc.) to get a working Armbian on any supported device.

    I've used the Odroid HC4, this is the same for any board you'd like to use.

    NicoD got a reaction from Werner in Station P1 - unboxing   
    I would have loved to have the PBP. But it's a bit too expensive.
    I've got my self made SBC "laptops". Either my first with a 7" 1024x600 display and Odroid C2 or RPi2b to save energy. All together -1A 5V.
    And my 13.3" 1080p display either with M4V2 or Khadas VIM3. The display alone is 1.2A. I then clock my RK3399 to all cores 1Ghz for watching movies or internet. Uses less than 1A then. Still powerful enough.
    Also got speakers in my display. So having this already I didn't see the sense in buying the PBP. Too bad they don't want to work with me. I'd love to have reviewed the PBP, the PinePhone, PineCube... 
    I was the first to have a video about all those products since I filmed their stand at FOSDEM in 2019.
    I now ordered a 60 000mAh power bank. I'll be able to use it for a week without charging. And it can charge with quickcharge. So in a rather short time I'll be able to charge it enough to last a long time. I can't wait for the lockdowns to be done so I can travel again. It's awesome to be able to use my desktop PC in my tent on solar power. 
    Here a picture of my first box almost 5 years ago now. Doesn't look as good as PBP. But functions as I need it.

    I've got the NVMe hat on the way. I asked the people of Firefly. I only needed to pay for the hat, so I'm happy. The extra $30 for shipping was a bit too much for me. It's more than the device is worth. 
    I don't know if I mentioned it already. I replaced the thick thermal pad with copper shims. It doesn't overheat anymore. I'll show it in my review video. I needed 2 copper shims on top of each other to reach the height of the thermal pad. With copper shims of double the height would probably perform a bit better.

    Now the case does get very hot when used maxed out.
    The CPU used to go over 85C and start throttling. Now maximum temperature is 79C and no throttling. Tho this is with 1.5Ghz/2Ghz overclock. With default clocks it didn't overheat.

    I had the same.
    They explained after a few days that it had some outgoing customs issues and asked me to place the order again.
    Yesterday I opened a dispute which was resolved by Aliexpress within an hour in my favour and today I got the money back.
    Seeing how well it went with the dispute I ordered it again - it was 0.25EUR more expensive now. Let's see how it fares this time ;-)

    If it was a cheaper board I'd do that. This is one of the most expensive I've bought. PSU is also a 15V 60W brick. Adds to the cost.
    I rather save my money to buy an Odroid Go Super next month. I never wanted a handheld so much, except when the Gameboy came out maybe.
    HC4 also suddenly became a gaming rig with 500GB of retro games on HDD. Too many games, I can't find the ones I want since thousands to browse thru.

    Hello,
     
    I was looking for Kali on BPi and tried the "Kali Linux BananaPi offensive-securityDOTcom-2020.04"-image without success.
    Unfortunately the image does not boot and no support from there (Domain-contact nor forum[...][...]).

    Some message about "mount: mounting /dev/mmcblk0p1 on /root failed: No such device", even if kernel was started from this 'No such device"'-SD-card.

    So Igor wrote me about katoolin which I tested on BPi with Armbian 20.11.3 Busterarmbian.

     

    For anyone who is interested here is my way:

     

    install "Armbian 20.11.3 Buster \l"
    install "katoolin see https://github.com/LionSec/katoolin"
    sudo python2.7 katoolin/katoolin.py
     -> Add Kali repositories & Update by the menu
    katoolin.py adds "deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free" to /etc/apt-sources

     

    apt-get install armitage  to get msfconsole,

    first test with vsftpd_234_backdoor-exploit on testdevice was successfull, meterpreter not tested yet.

     

    apt-get install burpsuite did not work, I had to add "deb http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib" manually.

    after this burpsuite could be started.

     

    For all who will look for this one day :-D

    I also got my Odroid HC4. Doing my first tests. USB seems very buggy with the Ubuntu Mate 20.04 from Odroid.
    This seems better with Armbian focal legacy desktop. Tho there no sata is found, while that does work with the Odroid HC4 Mate image.
    I'll try a lot more images to see if/what difference there is.
    Haven't checked any mainline yet.

    It does seem to have performance issue's when overclocked(2Ghz/2.1Ghz). It sometimes performs worse than with default clocks. Weird.
    I'm a bit surprised about how good it is for gaming.
    I like it a lot, but it did cost me a lot. Tho also bit my own fault.
    I first bought it from AmeriDroid. It was stuck in transit for a +month. So I got my money back and bought another at a Belgian seller. A lot more expensive. A day after I got my HC4 from the Belgian seller the one from AmeriDroid arrived. If only I had waited a few more days I'd have saved about 40euro. Buying from Hardkernel would have been even more cheap I'd guess.
    I may send it back to AmeriDroid without fees. Luckily. I really wanted a HC4, but 2 is too much

    @IgorI can confirm that freshly build Buster Legacy on the M4V2 is working. I love the native ARM build, so much faster than the RockPiX And that's RK3399, haven't gotten N2+ to work yet.

    I do not know what the problem with the RockPi4 image is.
    It can't have been the same issue as M4V2. The discription makes me think it's also hdmi not working as with P1.
