OrangePi Zero2 - Allwinner H616


28 28


Before complaining about an issue read this!


tl;dr: Put your Zero2 and/or any other H616 based device on the shelf and WAIT for proper support to come. And no. There is no ETA. Assuming usable state end 2021/beginning 2022.


Software support is still work in progress and under heavy development. Provided preview images can break any time. Do not report this, we are aware of that and can/will not help you with that if you are not willing to investigate and research by yourself.

Feel free to join fellow developers to their efforts to create proper software support. But don't waste our time with complains. Thank you!









I started to play with this board and obviously failed miserably creating a basic Armbian integration.


Anyway. These are the information I collected so far:

Hi all

I was tested the last image orangepi xfce 5.16 kernel released few dais back in orangepi web. 


But I was therified... The usage of its is 0, worst experience even whit compare to old rpi zero with desktop test. 


There I think is broken wifi can't conect to 2.4ghz 40mhz wide (20mhz is OK). 


And my question is, is there any usable kernel right now that has working h265 hw decode? 

Because in the last opi image it was impossible to play it even on sw. I have tride default player in opi image and vlc. 


I have plans for this board I want swap for rpi4 in multimedia home center, because lower powerconsumotion.. But still not usable...  I thin more months to wait now... :-(
