Orange pi 4 , another good rk3399

Recommended Posts

The new Opi board, using the popular rk3399 at a good price.

Has a debian image... not sure what kernel it uses.

Where to start ?

Why 4.4 ? I hope that will be possible to install armbian

 

cause Rockchips BSP kernel is a 4.4. All our legacy images for rk3288, (3308), 3328 and 3399 boards are based on this kernel (or a fork of it).

armbian somehow !

if this 'somehow' doesn't end here: https://github.com/armbian/build/pulls it's IMO not much of a difference to have "armbian" or the vendors provided image. It shouldn't be as hard to get it there (at least as csc supported device). The wifi module is the same as for the RockPi (next to USB3 yay) and it's also LPDDR4 (also RockPi 4b). As a first try I would just (try to) boot an Armbian image for the RockPi (this may also answer your questions for a "generic image", I assume you look for a starting point to get your new toy working). Then create a new boardconfig patch in the (hopefully) proper DT information you get somewhere from the BSP package of this board and pray it compiles without issues (even sound should be here: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/5c9a7ee7fb9c0d89c923b5690383f6d5006efed4/config/kernel/linux-rockchip64-legacy.config#L4303 at least for the 4.4 kernel). Send this back to Armbian and you'll likely end with (at least) csc support for this board. Except the NPU there's not much 'special' on this board so I don't see a reason why support for it shouldn't be straight forward (except the DTS file is such a mess that it doesn't work properly).

 

IMO the most interesting parts for this board are:

camera & 10.1 inch display (both MIPI 4 lane) so that someone finally could work on camera and display support for those boards (I hope/think that they are pincompatible to all RK3399 camera/display outs with 4 lane mipi, e.g. nanopi and ROCKPro64). Actually a part of all RK3399 boards where nobody cared about it until yet.

OrangePi told me on twitter that the camera for my OrangePi RK3399 would be this one... I should get it tomorrow, so that I'll soon know that.
They told me the same thing for the 10.1 display, but I did not buy it (yet).

Thanks chwe i'll do something in 2,3 weeks when I get the board.

Also interesting to me is the pcie expansion as a cable rather than pins. I guess that they will make theyr own expansion boards...

Or are there already expansion/adapters for that, from others ? I mean, its a "standard" or a opi thing ?
