    DrTune got a reaction from tkaiser in Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 available   
    Yes please! I love my A20 / H3 SBCs despite their various quirks - them being so hackable is very handy (having schematics + datasheets; OrangePi even do a decent job on the silkscreen which is a lifesaver)and Armbian has long been the only serious game in town for Allwinner boards IMO.
     
    Will be nice to have a couple in the drawer with a BLE capable radio and EMMC.   (C.H.I.P has both but ended up being a bit disappointing for me in practice; esp for I/O's - some via i2c expander and not even an unused UART; meh).  They're all good SOCs to hack on IMO (I'm sure I can even find a use for my Wifi-impaired PiZero's) ; the Allwinner datasheets are just about good enough to make it fun :-)
     
    Thanks! Hugely appreciate your work.

    DrTune got a reaction from Igor in Can we stop for a second and give credit due to the Armbian posse   
    Hey all,
    I've been using Allwinner boards for the last couple of years and Armbian+forums have made this a workable thing that I promote to my friends as being The Way To Go instead of being a big fat waste of time. 
    Igor + Tkaiser (and anyone else forgive me if I didn't give you a shout) - You fucking rock.  You really do; you've all provided amazing amounts of support for multiple kernels and userspaces and in the face of (at least) bullshit from the chip vendors, yet you are absolutely crucial to them being taken seriously.
    The work from Armbian has (for me) made the difference between BananaPi, OrangePi, etc all being an unusable washout of #ShitDidn'tWork, to being something I am excited to build into things and personally promote.
     
    Igor, Tkaiser; I've never met you but your work speaks for itself; you give a shit and you keep giving and shit and THANK YOU FOR THAT.
    I just donated you some $. If you're still reading this and you're using their work, you might think about doing same.   FWIW; what turned my head is seeing Igor and crew putting _years_ of work into this. 
     
    Anyway, much, much, much appreciated. From one to another; good job.

    DrTune got a reaction from Igor in Help To do sdcard question   
    FYI for anyone else wanting to avoid having Armbian use all your SD card when it first boots... 
    a) download armbian and write image to SD. Don't boot with it yet!
    plug SD card into a running linux system as external drive (e.g. via a USB-SD adapter) - I just used a previous Armbian image on my Banana Pi - and mount it,
    c) cd to the card's root directory
    d) echo 50% >root/.rootfs_resize     <<Where 50% is the amount of the actual SD card you want to utilize
    e) sync and remove card.
    f) Boot it
    e.g. I used a 4GB card and set it to resize to 65% and now my Armbian is using 2.4G of the 4G card.  I want this because I keep my images compact so I can zip up the SD image and send it to my factory in China (who I have set up with a production programmer/tester device using BananaPi + Armbian)
     
    Thanks Armbian guys, I can barely express how much I love your work. My fave distro for embedded systems EVER!
