Single Armbian image for RK + AML + AW (aarch64 ARMv8)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

First of all, I just stumbled upon Armbian and balbes Images. Incredible work! I got my "MX pro 4k" to boot the buster image using the generic meson_gxbb-p201.dtb 

Ethernet is working fine, however wifi is not (RTL8189etv chipset). I can imagine that the DTB doesn't contain the proper entries for this chipset. I've tried all gxbb DTBs but none of them load the Realtek module.

Has anyone got wifi to work and/or is anyone willing to share some info how I could make this work?

Would decompiling the p201 DTB and updating it with info from a DTB with rtl support, then compile again, work?

 

Any hints would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

l33chy

hi

after installing new version (20.05.1)

As i usually use telnet to access the device,

 I have a long long annoying delay in responses sent from server via SSH and SFTP .

Does anybody else encountered same issue in tests ?

I have s905x-p212 2G board- installed to Emmc

 

ps : I've  had enabled RDP in config before but i'm not sure about the Interference.

Have a look at https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12162-single-armbian-image-for-rk-aml-aw/page/10/?tab=comments#comment-96403

So that will be selinux=0 at the end of the APPEND= line in /boot/uEnv.txt

It's only a work around but it would be nice to get a fix.

Has anyone tested any AllWinner H616 based box?
I have one, and will give it a try.

Hi gounthar, some hope for armbian on a H616 soc?

Hi @balbes150,

unfortunately i can't boot...

I have writed Armbian_20.05.0_Rk3328-tv_buster_current_5.6.0-rc4_20200312.img to my SD

Then writed u-boot-rk3328-mvr9.img

But nothing...
Tried also with USB method, but nothing... I don't know what to do

If you use an image labeled 3328 in the name, you don't need to write u-boot. Only to complete the configuration of the DTB (rk3328-box.dtb).

 only need to add u-boot for the arm-64 version of the image

I have a similar issue, also with beelink GT1 2Gb ram (S912): with Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.0-rc6_20200331.img, eth0 and wlan0 eventually started to work using dtb q200 (was NOT the case with previous RC6 img, was previously running an old 4.20 kernel img) BUT today I had a small power failure and on reboot, I started to loose eth0 support again, with following error in kern.log:


Apr  7 14:32:56 localhost kernel: [   11.076849] meson8b-dwmac c9410000.ethernet eth0: no phy at addr -1
Apr  7 14:32:56 localhost kernel: [   11.076859] meson8b-dwmac c9410000.ethernet eth0: stmmac_open: Cannot attach to PHY (error: -19)

 

NB: directly after installing rc6_20200331, I did an apt update + apt upgrade and all went fine (I did not upgrade the kernel), so in my case the problem with eth0 does not seem to be related to upgrading some packages.

Since this error started to appear just after a power failure, could this be linked to some corrupted file ? Any idea how I could restore  them ?

 

Small update on my research to make the image work with Beelink GT1:
After trying a few things, I eventually decided to start again from scratch with Armbian_20.05.1_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.0-rc7_20200404.img.xz. After installing, same problem on clean install. I then tried to go back to 20200331 version, which was previously working. To my surprise, and despite using the exact same image (clean format using balenaEtcher), it was also not working anymore ! I thought about an hardware problem, but rebooting on android emmc system prove me wrong as ethernet was there working fine. I then flashed back the SD to 20200404 and used Q201 dtb file. The eth0 interface is recognized but there are still errors in kern.log and the interface is still faulty (can't get an IP from DHCP nor connect to it when set statically):

I'm really confused how as how to make progress on this, any kind of help would be very welcome :D (dts files in attachments).

Thanks @balbes150 for the good work!

I just turned another x96mini 2/16 into mini-desktop with Armbian_20.05.1_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.2_desktop_20200408.img.xz
Everything works as expected (on this board revision 4.0 even with wifi & bt) from eMMC so far. While configuring I had also sound via hdmi on testvideo, but now it works remote with hdmi-dummy-monitor and additional (passive) cooling.


On Armbian_20.05.1_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.0-rc7_desktop_20200404.img.xz I had an error "some parts of the hardware might not work like expected"(something similar was shown), but before searching deeper I placed 200408 on the card, which worked directly(after changing dtb in uEnv.txt)..

 

 

 

Btw. On this strange eachlink H6mini / flowfon f1 box I still couldn't boot anything useful, no matter which LE/armbian/usb/sd/u-boot/append/dtb combination I tried and uart gives just garbage, but I will keep on trying occasionally..

X96 Max Plus s905x3 4G  DTB fix for network and sound.

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jWnRu-GdOL72__X-ea8oI2VRW_x1ENTM/view?usp=sharing

 

Tested on Armbian 20.05.01 20200408.

 

Based on meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb (network ok no sound) and meson-sm1-sei610-2.dtb (sound hdmi ok no network) found on this forum.

 

If you want to editing DTB you have to convert it to DTS .

 

dtc -I dtb -O dts x.dtb -o x.dts

EDIT  (i use kate)

CONVERT (BACK) dts to dtb

dtc -I dts -O dtb test.dts -o test.dtb

 

Ignore warnings when converting.

 

If some DTB working on network and other working on sound you can copy past to fix.

A lot off trying and failing.

Hi.

 

When I try to upgrade my amlogic S912 tvbox with ubuntu bionic 20.05.0 to 20.05.1, the .dtb my tvbox use is gxm-vim-khadas2

 

If I reboot the machine it gets stuck on amlogic boot screen, I've tried to change the .dtb for the one's in the image Armbian_20.05.1_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.2_20200408.img.xz but it hasn't work.

 

I've burned the image Armbian_20.05.1_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.2_20200408.img on a sd card, I've changed the dtb on uEnv.txt but it hasn't boot it was stuck on amlogic boot screen. When i read the sd card the uEnv.txt was restored to original with no changes.

 

I've restored with a backup  and upgraded all packages except "linux-image-current-arm-64/bionic 20.05.1 arm64 [upgradable from: 20.05.0]" and it works.

 

 

conf@arm-64:~$ sudo apt list --upgradable
Listing... Done
linux-image-current-arm-64/bionic 20.05.1 arm64 [upgradable from: 20.05.0]
N: There are 2 additional versions. Please use the '-a' switch to see them.

Any idea?

Hi there, I have a S905M device, I installed Armbian_20.05.1_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.0-rc7_20200404.img to eMMC with install-aml-s905.sh and it works well, but it can't boot from u-disk any more, even holding the reset button when booting, is it possible to boot from u-disk? This image looks like a server version, but why is it so big, 5.24GB? Thanks in advance.

First off, I want to say thank you for contributing.  We need all the help around here that we can get.

 

However, a patch like this is a example of the problems that Armbian faces (and probably to even a greater extent that the Armbian for TV boxes fork faces). 

 

There are probably hundreds of different android TV boxes being manufactured.  Each with a lot of inexpensive components - wifi chips, bluetooth, ethernet, etc.  In an ideal world each manufacturer would support their products and incorporate their drivers into the mainline kernel.  But this isn't an ideal world, and many of these chips have no support by the manufacturer (probably no source code, rarely any bug fixes, security updates are unlikely).  That kind of works in the android world as the kernel version is fixed and there isn't an expectation of updates or long term support. 

 

But here in the Armbian world, end users expect that there will be long term support and security and bug fix updates.  But that becomes very difficult if the upstream chip builders don't support their products.  It isn't sustainable for the limited Armbian developers to spend all their time tracking down and then maintaining hundreds of patches for all these different drivers over a period of years.  Therefore you will see in Armbian a desire to put effort into areas where the upstream code can be integrated into the mainline kernel (hopefully by the original manufacturer), so that patches only need to be maintained for a couple of kernel release cycles as the code get integrated into mainline. 

 

So while I know nothing about the wifi chip that your supplied patch supports, it there isn't an effort by someone upstream to be integrating that into the mainline kernel, it probably doesn't make sense for it to be incorporated here.  The long term maintenance costs aren't worth the effort. While there certainly are exceptions, that is how I see the reality of being of the current Armbian environment.  The project is not able to support the wide variety of components that exist in all the different SBC's and TV boxes being produced today or over the last 5 years, so the effort goes to where there is the most support from upstream suppliers.

Hi Everyone,

I have Sunvell Q Plus Allwinner H6 soc with 4GB/32GB, i am trying to install armbian (Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_buster_current_5.6.0-rc6_20200403.img.xz) from sd-card.

One quirk about this device is that reset button doesnot work, its rooted and so i can go to shell and type su, reboot recovery to go to recovery but that is not much helpfull to me, or i don't know if it is useful.

 

What i did so far.

 

  1. written Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_buster_current_5.6.0-rc6_20200403.img.xz to sdcard in windows 10 using Win32diskImager.
  2. From sd-card, removed .aw from all 4 allwinnder files with replaced existing files.
  3. updated uEnv.txt to use
    • FDT=/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-tanix-tx6.dtb
    • APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0
  4. Did not knew what is the procedure is to writing uboot files so just copied (u-boot-allwinner-h6-tanix-tx6.img) to sd-card as u-boot.ext

But device is not booting from sd-card.

Please let me know if you need some other information, i am not sure about step 4 but i don't know what to do next.

Not copy, but write , just as you write an image.

 Hi @balbes150

Thanks for your quick reply, but sorry for my ignorance I did not understood that. I am on Windows 10 and using Win32DiskImager. After writing main armbian image there are two partitions on sd card. One is boot partitiin which is fat32 and other not visible in Windows.

Writting uboot image will overwrite contents of boot partition.

Is it suppose to be or I need some other program which will not overwrite boot partition? This is just my assumption, I did not tried. Will try that asap.

All sources with documents are regularly updated in my GIT (Build-Armbian).

Awesome, thanks, I somehow missed that despite searching around! Maybe you want to put that in the top post :)

Thanks @balbes150

After writing u-boot to boot partition, i tried few dtbs and able to boot from only /dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-pine-h64-model-b.dtb but initial setup drops to shell with error "alert lable:rootfs doesnot exist"

I am not sure if i am using the correct versions of files, but only this combination boots at all.

 

 

armbian-image: Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_buster_current_5.6.0-rc6_20200403.img
u-boot:u-boot-allwinner-h6-tanix-tx6.img

 

 

 

uEnv.txt:

----------

LINUX=/zImage
INITRD=/uInitrd

# aw h6
FDT=/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-pine-h64-model-b.dtb
APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0
