OrangePi Zero2 - Allwinner H616

Question

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:

Yes unfortunately you will have to develop overlays, no development is visible there.

Looks like it's a bit early for me to completely understand what you mean. 🤷‍♂️

Hi @yar83,

 

Sorry for responding late. Don't underestimate yourself, from what you have said, you have already done much and made a sensible choice with your project. Embedded Linux is a different subject from micro controllers which although OT, might be more appropriate for the physical computing aspects of your project.

 

I read it that you were struggling with the zero2 hardware, specifically integrating GPIO uses and possibly protocols such as SPI and i2c as an example. My agreement of that struggle specifically with zero2 is that the development of this boards peripheral's is non existent and have no easy way forward at the moment. 

 

You will have to brush up on device trees and overlays in order to start to use the capabilities of the board and you seem keen to have a serious punt at it for learning purposes.

 

Best,

Alistair

Hello all!

 

I'm thinking of buying an Orange Pi Zero 2, but came here first to know what the issues are before doing so.

Apparently, people can't get wifi to work ,is that correct?

What other features would I be missing?

 

Thank you!

For further discussion please create individual topics per issue/question. Lots of information gets lost in those insanely long topics.

Thanks for understanding.
