Banana Pi M1 A20 unfreeze kernel headers usb wifi


Recommended Posts


Recent bananapi m1 images (and other A20 boards?) have no kernel headers, and armbian-config is not working so no hardware support.



Take this image and install the headers manually - or update to recent ones from here (not all work).




While is the same build, cannot unfreeze kernel changes in armbian-config gui


Flash SD and drop the 3 kernel packages in /root/

After first boot run $ apt upgrade && apt upgrade --fix-missing

Unfreeze kernel with $ armbian-config -> system -> unfreeze (should accept)

Install kernel packages: $ dpkg -i <package-dtb.deb>  <package-image.deb> <package-header.deb>

reboot & freeze kernel again


compare build scripts current vs minimal - and merge upstream?

 I am noob :beer: Please show the way.

Files pack:




Note to self:  I should learn how to compile and build images.
