In the FriendlyARM thread http://www.friendlyarm.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=1427&p=5685#p5685 we did try to use A64 images from the Pine64 or the BananaPi M64 with the NanoPi A64. The last times we did that with less success - OK Sytem is running but Network/Sound has to added via USB. No suppport for the onboard devices But today a user did wrote that - with the actual stable Pine64-image ( Armbian_5.69_Pine64_Debian_stretch_next_4.19.13 ) WiFi is useable. So I flasded the Pine64-image to a MicroSDCard and did boot. Additiionally I did see with "aplay -l" the HDMI and the analog Sound-device. But ethernet isnt "connected" right via the .dtb armbian inside can see the ethernet-part of the SoC (set IP and see MAC) and the external RTL8122E Phy blinks the Link and Transfered-Packets via LED.... My first idea was to edit the Pine64 DTB to match the NanoPI A64 DTB in the ethernet-part - but with these Pins & PHandle's I did get stuck BUT my second idea did work much better, because in the armbian-build-system I also did see the sun50i-a64-nanopi-a64.dtb So I checked the board-config-file for the pine64.conf ( under ./build/config/boards/ ) - there is an entry for a defconfig file and the armbin-build-system has also a defonfig file for the nanopi-a64 ./build/cache/sources/u-boot/v2018.11/configs/nanopi_a64_defconfig while the NanoPi A64 isnt (official) supported by the Meneu-System of the armbian-build-system. So I copied ./build/config/boards/pine64.conf to ./build/config/boards/nanopia64.conf and did edit it like in the following way: # A64 quad core 512MB-2GB SoC GBE BOARD_NAME="NanoPiA64" BOARDFAMILY="sun50iw1" BOOTCONFIG_DEFAULT="sun50iw1p1_config" BOOTCONFIG="nanopi_a64_defconfig" # MODULES="sunxi_codec sunxi_i2s sunxi_sndcodec 8723bs" MODULES_NEXT="" # KERNEL_TARGET="default,next,dev" CLI_TARGET="bionic,stretch:next" DESKTOP_TARGET="xenial:default" # CLI_BETA_TARGET="" DESKTOP_BETA_TARGET="" and did compile for the NanoPi A64 with ./compile.sh EXPERT="yes" in ./build/ Now I could select the NanoPi A64 (falsely) as supported board and did select DEV (armbian 5.71 with Kernel 4.20) I did build the console and the Desktop-version. In the console-version I was happy to see eth0 & wlan0 working, but the HDMI and analog soundsystem is missing (which was visible in Pine64 next 4.19.13) So there was no need for a RTL8211E-driver (because its only a PHY) like I did read before at http://linux-sunxi.org/Ethernet#Realtek_RTL8211E In the Desktop-version the GUI did start without problems (not fast, but useable) - like on a older pinebook (a64) build Maybe DEV was "too much"? I will try the NEXT for my NanoPi A64 File Or maybe the nanopi A64 dtb isnt correct on the "sound-part"?
