    gounthar reacted to GRBaset in Orange Pi camera not working on OPi Lite   
    OK, I solved the problem by installing an Armbian 5.20 image I found searching for "armbian_5.20_orangepilite_debian_jessie_3.4.112.7z" on Google. However, it's not an optimal solution, because I have to be careful when updating, and Debian Jessie will no longer be supported on June 30, 2020. In order to keep it working, I have to put the following packages on hold:
    # apt-mark hold armbian-firmware armbian-tools-jessie linux-headers-sun8i linux-image-sun8i linux-jessie-root-orangepilite linux-u-boot-orangepilite-default sunxi-tools

    a good start - I think - would be the NanoPi K1 Plus
    https://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=220
     
    has
    - 64bit SoC (well supported H5-CPU - also cool running)
    - 2GB of RAM
    - WiFi
    - HDMI (but no 4K)
     
     
    Wth 1GB of RAM there is also the OrangePi PC2 - but no WiFi

    He probably meant why this (mSATA) drive is not working on mPCI ... while the connector is compatible.

    First, install the DT compiler : http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/d/device-tree-compiler/device-tree-compiler_1.4.7-3_arm64.deb
    Next, copy the /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-orangepi-one-plus.dtb into /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-orangepi-one-plus.dtb-ORIG as backup.
    Third, decompile it into DTS :
    dtc -@ -I dtb -O dts -o /root/sun50i-h6-orangepi-one-plus.dts-5.1.0 /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-orangepi-one-plus.dtb Fourth, edit the file /root/sun50i-h6-orangepi-one-plus.dts-5.1.0 by adding this in the aliases node :  ethernet0 = "/soc/ethernet@5020000";
    Fifth, recompile the DTB and reboot :
    dtc -@ -I dts -O dtb -o /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-orangepi-one-plus.dtb /root/sun50i-h6-orangepi-one-plus.dts-5.1.0 About "cpu-freq", I don't really know, I'm not the expert on this one ...

    Most likely you should be able to boot OrangeOS from Armbian u-boot. Then you can skip flashing system to eMMC but boot from SD the same way as we boot Armbian from SD once new boot is on the eMMC. Sadly there seems like a lot of work (and we already struggle with regular maintenance) to merge yet another private fork into join rockchip64-default kernel.

    It's important which u-boot you have on eMMC. If you used their tools, it gets overwritten. Xunlong's u-boot is not capable of such tricks. See:

    gounthar reacted to pfry in Ramblings and progress with the RK3399   
    The Orange Pi RK3399 has 5V and 3.3V available on the 40-pin header (and nowhere else that I can see offhand). Pinout is in the manual; it's a standard .1"/2.54mm header - lots of connector options. The mSATA interface is a bit inconvenient (uncommon); it also has 3.3V power available - perfect for an mSATA device; not much use if you're adapting it to a 2.5" device. I didn't check to see how much power is available, but I'd expect it to be fine for typical devices.

    I'm holding off until the DDR4 support is working in mainline, this board would be in the same unfortunate state as the RockPi 4/etc. once the u-boot is working properly we can get rk3399 all put into one happy family and get the support fixed.

    That is what I do all the time, the nand-sata-install is working fine.
    Then, if I wish to boot from SDCard, even if U-Boot is start booting from eMMC as priority, I'm stopping it with <spacebar>, then do "mmc list" to see SDCard number, and do "setenv devnum 1" followed with "run mmc_boot", it will then continue booting from SDCard ...

    It got here yesterday (4.26) - first glances...
     
    (Note - this is a big/LITTLE - the A53's are 'hidden' but they're present - to Linux, only the big A57's are shown - there's some shenanigans going on inside the chip for power management that is not exposed to the OS)
     
    1) When they say 5V 4A - they mean it - and it's best to power this device thru the barrel jack
    2) Can power via microUSB - and there, have a very, very, very good power supply - even then
    2a) powering thru the MicroUSB means that the Tegra is going to into a lower scale power domain - it adjusts the clocks according to not exceed 2A
    3) Display - Display Port to a monitor works, HDMI to a FullHD (1018P) works, HDMI to DVI adapters - strongly not recommended - I had an old one that was supplied with a Mac Mini 2010, and it kinda works
     
    Some tips - use a powered USB hub for Keyboard/Mouse if running from MicroUSB as depending on peripherals, including a WiFi adapter, takes away from that 2A power budget, and can cause stability issues.
     
    (on big chips like this where the board has a barrel jack - don't use MicroUSB)
     
    SD Card - use a quality UHS-1 or better card - I'm using a Samsung Pro Plus - which is a Class 10 UHS3 card, and it works fine.
     
    Info below - running from MicroUSB - I have a 5VDC 4A adapter on order...

    C'mon guys. I still need to Order the Odroid N2 and you're pushing this in my face.

    It's a nice board. I love the heatsink. I'm so very interested in knowing how much weight those A57's can lift. And that GPU is a monster on an SBC. Would be awesome if that could be used by Blender or a video editor.

     
    You'd hope so. It's their own gpu, so they should be able to write decent software. But I don't know, it's still a development board.

    That googly thingy is also very sexy. But less useable by me.

    But it works... wg is cool as CPU load is minimal, compared to the CPU intense OpenVPN -
     
    Enter MIPS24Kc, which would be comparable to ARM11 - Pre-ARM Cortex-A7... the other day, two clients attached, and CPU load was 3 percent, and that's with Stubby and WG active over a 4G mobile hotspot (USB-150 was WiFi to the phone as WAN, and routing from there to two WiFi clients)
     
    I suppose this is the difference between an Application focused SoC vs a Network focused platform.
