    Maybe it is possible to perform a simple recording of what is happening on the monitor on a regular video camera or take photos of your favorite moments ?

    I don't have a good camera. I did take some pictures of the top, not from the bottom. I did film the replacing of the thermal pad, but it isn't sharp enough to see anything. I'd need to disassemble the whole thing to be able to see the bottom. 

    There are some pictures of it here. https://download.t-firefly.com/产品规格文档/开源主板/ROC-RK3399-PC Plus - Specification.pdf?


    I'm using a normal 1080p pc display. No tv. I'll try again. I also tried the focal mainline from your folder and it also didn't boot. Also stuck at those stripes. I didn't know USB boot worked. I'll try that too.

    @NicoD Can you try with the current version of Buster-legacy this DTB ? With it, you should have NVMe. There will also be a device for analog sound, but without patches in the core itself, the sound does not work (in the new image with patches, the sound and remote control work).

    I meant the release of a new model P1 (if the manufacturer releases one), in which the M2 connector will be built into the main board (for example, as it is done on the Firefly rk3399 or on the NanoPC T4).
     
    As for the photos, this is @NicoD, we have a specialist, I hope he can make them.
     
     
    The good news is, I'm currently testing a new "old " kernel (legacy) that runs NVMe, analog audio, and remote control on the P1. I hope to upload a new Buster-legacy image with this core to the site soon. By the way, do I need to build more versions of Focal \ Bullseye, etc. with this kernel ?

    It's looking better now. I removed the wire for the antenna from the frame, plugged it back in. And attached the frame.
     
    They should have designed the case a bit higher so the hat would fit. But I like it like this. I'll try hirsute now. Been a while since I tried it.

    Awesome. This performs better than my M4V2. M4V2 does 750MB/s max. This does 850MB/s.
    @balbes150There seems to be an issue with Hirsute mainline. Some apps don't work right. Like gparted. It doesn't open when you click it in the applications menu. 
    You can start it with 'sudo gparted'. 
    For gnome-disks it doesn't as for a password to do a task, so it fails it. When you load it with 'sudo gnome-disks' it does work as expected.
    Also when doing reboot it goes into AndroidTV instead of rebooting to hirsute. 
    NVMe does work.
    I'll try sid now.

    If @JMCC adds a script for the main kernel, then any version can be used. 
    Personally, I like the latest Hirsute. I am testing the latest versions (Hirsute and Sid) and see a significant improvement regarding Focal and Bullsey. As far as I know (when building LE with the main core), the main core now has all the components for HW.
    I am quite satisfied with the main core, even without HW, it is enough for full-screen video in 1080p mode (this is the main mode I use, 4k is too small for the desktop).
     
    I regularly update all the latest images on the site

    I don't have N2+. I try not to release versions for hardware that I don't have (this creates a lot of problems for me, users ask questions and describe problems, but I can't test and fix them, so I avoid creating such variants).

    It works  I upped it a bit more and used the Focal mainline image. 465.76GiB of Samsung EVO 970 goodness. 
    That's nice.  Happy.

    Now what image should I use for the video? I wanted to use the media script for buster on it to have a great desktop image. 
    I could also make a gaming image on it, but I'm not sure many people are interested in that. Could you please share your link again with Armbian TV images? 
    Also for N2+ if you've got one. I'd like to use it as headless armbian build server. Thanks.

    The old LEGACY kernel does not see NVMe. Need to understand the configuration and DTS. But there's no time for that yet.

    I checked it again now. NVMe works with all ArmbianTV and Armbian images with the main core. I didn't check the legacy kernel. Here is a screenshot. Please note, the hat is very sensitive to the contact fit, if you put it on too tightly, NVMe does not work. You need to slightly raise the hat over the main board, so that there is no contact with other elements.

    I received the NVMe hat last week. I tried it and it doesn't seem to be working.
    The case also isn't made for it. You need to remove the case except for the bottom plate to be able to plug the hat in. 
    The wifi antenna is also glued with hot glue to the board. I needed to remove that to have the space for the hat.


    The spacers also were too high to be able to plug the hat.

    So I replaced them with lower spacer.
     
    Then I was able to plug in the hat. But using my 512GB Samsung EVO 970 I couldn't make it recognize it in either Buster Legacy and Focal Mainline. Neither in Android.
    I also tried other NVMe's, and none did work. 

    A bit a pity they didn't hold the NVMe hat into account when designing the case.

    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 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.
