Control USB-OTG Power On/Off On Orange Pi One - Armbian Buster


Recommended Posts


Hi all, 


I am hoping there is a straight forward solution to this;


I've read this thread on turning on and off the usb OTG using GPIO commands:

The concept is really clever and I was hoping to use it as part of my Octoprint 3D printing setup so that I can turn off printer when not in use. The only catch is that the method requires modifying the ./bin/orangepione.bin file which isn't present on my version of Armbian (Buster).


TL;DR according to the post I need to

1. convert ./bin/orangepione.bin to FEX, 

2.  edit the file by adding "usb_drv_vbus_gpio = port:PL02<1><0><default><0>",

3. convert it back to bin,

4. use the commands "echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio354/value" or "echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio354/value" to turn off/on the pin and thus usb.


Is there an equivalent file where I could modify the line "usb_drv_vbus_gpio =" which would allow me to control pin PL2?


Alternatively is it possible to control pin PL2 using the WiringOP? I am currently using it to control a relay however while looking into it I could not find any reference to PL2.


I'm fairly new to Linux and Armbian so any guidance at all would be very much appreciated.
