  1. @Igor Kernel enabled Bootsplash works great on the recent 20.08 on Orange Pi 4. However there is a delay of around 20 - 30 seconds before this Bootsplash comes up. Is is possible to enable bootsplash on u-boot also on this image? I built a custom image 20.08-trunk with option "Kernel enabled bootsplash' disabled however could not see u-boot bootspalsh on this image. -Rajesh
  2. Hi, A small discussion started here, but I would like to lift it to here. The question and tests should be. Are there alternatives to Etcher? A must was - standard writing verification. IIRC this was back in the days an option you had to set a 'tick' on Win32 DiskImager.. and so not an option. Before we change anything - proper testing and writing down the steps to achieve a great result is a must. Multiplatform, would be nice, but we can as well recommend 2 or 3 SDcard writing programs. Can you please help to write a table of available programs (you can d
  3. Recently, a new SBC, the Rock Pi S by Radxa, was launched. Here's it's wiki page: It's a 4 core A35 design. I'm debating getting one, but I can't find any information anywhere as to whether or not it's supported on Linux, or Armbian. Of course, if it's not listed in the download section it's not supported, but there's a difference between, "I need to add 100 lines of code and it will work." to "Geez, I need to redesign most of the Linux kernel after pulling my hair out." I did search the sunxi wiki and the local armbian wiki without success. A
  4. Hi all, sbc-bench is now on Github: I'll link from the README there to this thread for further discussion about the tool and proper benchmark methodology.
  5. Finally I got my lcd (some of them) to work with armbian on mainline kernel (5.4) using device tree overlay. It should be working on 4.19 kernel too. I test mine on orange pi zero. The one I am able to get working is ili9341 and st7735 based lcd. I'll add more detail later but for now I'd like to get this out. edit 1 : Adding ssd1306 and nokia 5110 overlay to the repo device tree overlay
  6. After working with sysfs and libgpiod as cross platform solutions I was wondering if there was a faster way using /dev/mem or mmio? I know this gets more bare metal and SBC specific, but for some things you may want absolute speed. for instance claims 1 MHz GPIO writes in Java. However it only supports 3 SBCs as you can see from Is there a more generic way to do this and not lose performance? Using my generated JNA wrappers for libgpiod I get about 2K writes per second. In Python I think it's about 7
  7. As we know, the PCIe on H6 is buggy, which doesn't offer linear address, and Linux cannot support such kind of configuration. However, the Cortex-A53 cores used by H6 supports virtualization, which can be used to change the order of the address space. Recently, I tried to make use of virtualization to provide linear mapping of PCIe, and I succeed in making an Intel 6205 wireless card working. The hypervisor code is at . It's intended to start before U-Boot, and located at 0x40010000. A U-Boot fork that i
  8. Hello, I'm try to setup my OPiZero as mediaplyer, and I need to use it sometimes as WiFi Client - Managed mode and sometimes as WiFi AP - Master mode. Scenario 1 Work in "dual mode", I mean, when my wifi network within reach, then OPiZ start as "client", and connect to my preferred wifi network when wifi network not in range, it start as AP+DHCP (hostapd and dnsmasq) Scenario 2 Switched mode, Make any push button on gpio, and then make scripts "to do the job" .. disconnect from wifi, stop wpa_supplicant, run hostapd an dnsmasq.
  9. Tanix TX6 is H6 based Android TV Box and it can boot from SD cards prepared with PhoenixCard. It should be possible to make it work with Armbian too, right? I tried a recent Lite2 image, it didn't work, but it also didn't boot main Android, which means SD boot takes priority. I don't think it's a normal behavior for other Android TV boxes, but maybe it is for those with H6 boards.
  10. I would like to know the content of u-boot-s905x-s912 and u-boot-s905x2-s922 at the boot dir. of armbian release . Is there a tool to de-compile these script to plain text ? Sorry if this question had been asked or answered . I didnot find any clues from searching at this forum. Thanks !
  11. The ARM kernel itself has already been compiled. How to compile a ARM kernel module on an VM amd64?
  12. Does anybody have a solution how to charge battery with more conservative voltage range? I'm using battery backup for my CubieTruck boards to survive power outages for several years. And as one of the batteries recently blew up (and also killed the backup HDD next to it) I try to find a way to charge the battery in a range that preserves health of it. When searching for a long-term-save voltage range of LiPo batteries you get something like: use only half of capacity, much below 4V, never deep charge, ... Default setting for the AXP209 charge controller is to charge to 4,2V, a
  13. Hi - Earlier this week ( begin April 2020 ) I found out H5 boards become scarce. I was unable to find the H5 chip at allwinner tech H series section, suppose this will be replaced ? Anyone more info perhaps?
  14. Would there be a way to add a configuration option to armbian-config to disable built-in button being used for shutdown? Currently I have to remove the r_gpio_keys section in the DTB and compile. Seems like something armbian-config could do?
  15. Hi @Igor I have a Banana Pi W3 board which now has kernel code for supporting the two Ethernet ports (actually three, one not wired). I am wanting to know if there are any instructions or help available on how to go about :- a) supporting the BPI W2 A53 CPU b) integrating the Realtech 1296 Support and possibly all th Realtech chipsets, on the following links
  16. Hi everybody, I have a problem with this version: Armbian_20.05.2_Rockpro64_buster_legacy_4.4.213.img I don't see my disk that is plugged on the PCIe To SATA Marvell 88SE9230 in the system. I've create the file /etc/udev/rules.d/99-marvell.rules with the following line on it: ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="pci", ATTR{vendor}=="0x1b4b", ATTR{device}=="0x9230", RUN+="/bin/bash -c 'echo %k > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ahci/bind'" If I do the same thing with this version: Armbian_20.05.4_Rockpro64_focal_current_5.4.46.img, I see my disk after creating the file.
  17. Is there an issues page relating to the M4V2 and Armbian Focal. I'm testing it and I have a few strange things happening with NFS and network but I was wondering if there as a known issues or a general topic regarding this board and this Ambian build because searching for nanopi-M4V2 Focal... is not a good idea. Thanks
  18. Hello i hope you all have a nice day At first i need to thank you for all the work you done. I'm runnig my ROCKPro64 no for a while now Today i wanted to try wifi and bt but it looks we dont have any drivers for the module AMPAK AP6256 Combo Module and made specifically for the ROCKPro64 Debian 10 headless 20.08.0-trunk Can someone help me to reach the goal to use my wifi ?

  22. Looking to find out why the Orange Pi OS Build isn't finding this file. Tried on two separate Linux 18.04 OS and neither has this file. When running, right after entering the initial password, it drops out and claims the file lib32z1-dev not locate able. The only thing I can think is I need to install the SDK to build the OrangePi OS for this? Trying to do this from the Orange Pi Git Hub. Thanks for any help.
  23. Ever since patchfolders were created for different branches and different board families it has become more and more a nightmare to maintain these folders and keep them clean. Instead of taking the approach to clear one or more of these folders by myself, last but not least due to lack of necessary skills, I was thinking maybe I can provide some tools that make such tasks a little easier for somebody else. Last but not least was (and still is) this a perfect opportunity to pratice with my quite new Python skills.
  24. Dear Armbian community, we are looking for a low-power SBC with (deep sleep) / poweroff features for IoT applications. Arduino or any other MCU board are not suitable for doing our use cases, so we are investigating the use of an low-power SBC. i.MX6ULL ( has an integrated PMU with a lot of different low-power modes. Like SNVS mode, where only the power for the SNVS domain remain on. In this mode, only the RTC and tamper detection logic is still active
  25. Java Periphery has finally been released! Java Periphery is a high performance library for GPIO, LED, PWM, SPI, I2C, MMIO and Serial peripheral I/O interface access in userspace Linux. This will replace User Space IO. I'm seeing GPIO write speeds of 500K/s from userspace. Compared to User Space IO and libgopid speeds of 2K/s. I switched from JNA wrapper generation to JNI wrapper generation. The build process is much simpler (only single and building libgpiod is no longer required. The API follows c-periphery, python-periphery and lua-periphery. This should cover the widest array of
