TL;DR

Where in armbian build system correctly can be make N2-only related changes:

1. /boot ext4 volume have to have symlink  . as boot, can be created with command ln -s ./ boot

2. kernel env variable set in boot.ini contain part but it shouldn't. This substring need to be removed if btrfs choosen.

3. /boot ext4 partition have only 4 MB free. I am not sure but think it's too small; for example there no space to run update-initramfs -u. I think it should be larger, like 500 MB.

 

Long:

I want to run my oDroid-N2 with root on BTRFS filesystem.

I use manual on armbian image build and did

time ./compile.sh BOARD=odroidn2 BRANCH=current RELEASE=focal BUILD_MINIMAL=no BUILD_DESKTOP=no KERNEL_ONLY=no KERNEL_CONFIGURE=yes ROOTFS_TYPE=btrfs INSTALL_HEADERS=no BUILD_KSRC=no

then image Armbian_20.08.0-trunk_Odroidn2_focal_current_5.7.16.img was written to microSD card with BalenaEtcher program, inserted into N2 with serial console connected.

cap1.log

 

Then I create simlink ./ boot on boot volume, and get cap2.log

 

Then I remove rootflags=data=writeback from bootargs and successfully boot into shell prompt, cap3.log
