ODroid C2 and VU7 Screen


Recommended Posts

I have an C2 and an old VU7 (800x480p60hz) https://wiki.odroid.com/accessory/display/vu_series/vu7/vu7#tab__odroid-c2 that I was hoping to use for a mini kiosk.


Was able to run the older Hard Kernel supplied images with the uboot boot.ini updates suggested above to change disable auto detect, fix the resolution, and set to DVI rather than HDMI mode.


When I loaded the latest Focal image from Armbian when I have the screen switched on then the kernel faults and reboots.

Starting kernel ...

I assume all I should need to do is update the /boot/boot.cmd, run `mkimage -C none -A arm -T script -d /boot/boot.cmd /boot/boot.scr` and the boot.scr should be updated.


Also set:


setenv disable_vu7 "false"

But that variable isn't being used anywhere in the boot.cmd so I don't think it is being applied.

In case you are not planning to develop or sponsor this adventure I suggest you to stick to stock kernel. Functions in modern kernels are never complete, especially this is critical when comes to external devices such as displays. Hardkernel never supported modern kernels nor our work on this device while end user donations are only enough to address one medium complex bug in whole project. Per year. This here could pull some serious R&D ... but someone perhaps knows something. Hard to judge without investigation, but what I am pretty confident it won't be as simple as this idea.
