[Invalid] - Rockpi 4C - hardware issues on 5.10 and 4.4


Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a new Rockpi 4C. I am caming out crazy because I cannot understand some hardware issues. If I use the 5.10 kernel all hardware is working less the GPU. The images are bad and the lines swing everywhere. But the CPU is pretty cool and sometimes the heat-sink became hot, but not forever. The resolution is only the 1024 X 768!! The bluetooth, with the kernel 5.10, is perfectly working.

With the magic Armbian-Config utility I installed the legacy kernel 4.4. I switched on that kernel and the GPU is perfect now and I am reading what I am writing. BUT:

The bluetooth service is gone. Definitively! The USB ports are gone too!! There is only one usb port working now at the moment and in that port there is the keyboard that I am touching. The heatsink of the CPU is hot. With both kernel the M.2 disk is seen and runs fast. See the images below and try to look them.

I tried a Majaro version of the ARM linux. The problem is the same: same issues on same kernel.

Your issue report is not a valid bug report per the Armbian bug reporting instructions (https://www.armbian.com/bugs).  With limited resources the Armbian project is only able to spend time on issues where all the requested information has been provided and for only the boards/images/software that are supported.  Your report is invalid for one or more of the following reasons (non-exhaustive list):


  • it is for an unsupported board or image (CSC/EOS/WIP/edge)
  • it is for software that is not supported (such as userspace modules installed on top of the core operating system)
  • it has been logged in the wrong forum (for example requests for help that are not actual bug reports)
  • it lacks requested data (armbianmonitor output)
  • it could have been easily solved by a quick search and/or reading documentation


Please review what you have submitted and the bug logging instructions (https://www.armbian.com/bugs) and either add the required information or open a new topic in the correct forum (such as Common issues / peer to peer technical support or General chit chat)

Hello. Sorry. It was not a bug reporting. It was only a 3399 talking. I don't know where I should transfert the topic. And I cannot do that. Please, could you move the topic where you consider the right place to? Thanks.
