nand install, self-compiled headless debian9 image

what exactly do you mean by "headless" - the default config for the armbian build system gives you hdmi support?

Did you change the max cpu frequency (should not exceed 1008 kHz)?

My R69s rarely exceed 40 degs ...

i mean headless is server image, without gui, but with framebuffer tty console.

no, i did not changed any max values.

right now, staying idle on my desktop.

My board PCB V1.1 

sometime can't boot from microsd
I try power-off and on manytime

 

I want install to emmc 

I try other u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin  but error

Partition too small. Needed: 1182 MB Avaliable:  MB 

 

please share u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin

Did you build your kernel with the armbian build system? Like this:

# git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/armbian/build
# cd build
# ./compile.sh BOARD=sunvell-r69

Use the <NEXT> kernel. There have been changes recently to DRAM timing which have increased stability.

To transfer the OS from SD-Card to eMMC use $sudo armbian-config. There is an option in the "Systems"-menu to transfer the OS to the internal eMMC.

Yes I try it 

don't show emmc for install

So in armbian-config / Systen settings / Install "Install to SATA, eMMC, NAND or USB" you hit OK and did not get the option:

"1   Boot from eMMC - system on eMMC"?

 

Can you post the output of lsblk to check that the OS "sees" the eMMC? That should look something like this:

test@sunvell:~$ lsblk
NAME         MAJ:MIN RM  SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
mmcblk0      179:0    0 29.7G  0 disk

My hope is that this weekend I will get my blog post up about my adventure and showing the mods I have made to have this run reliably.  I will come back then and update again.

Well, it wasn't that weekend, it took me a while but I did eventually make a blog post for it: Sunvell R69 - My adventures with a cheap TV Box

 

Additionally, Sunvell R69 is fully supported by H3Droid but we do suggest the use of a fan for sure!

 

Cheers!

If we have everything to get it officially supported I don't understand why it didn't become supported and there are no official builds :/

Possible reasons:

  • lack of resources (every new board needs testing and maintaining and we still suffer from both)
  • board is of minor interest (armbian is mainly for SBCs not TV boxes)
  • lack of samples for the maintainer (building images for boards which can't be tested ends often in a lot more support questions which can't be answered cause no dev has the board not at hand to reproduce the issue)
  • no schematics available

how to check tv box emmc version?

might be a reason too.. Even SBC boardmakers make sometimes changes to SBCs which end in a complete mess cause there are no informations  what they changed from revision to revision. For a cheap TV box which wasn't build for that propose, the situation get's even worse. They adjust their fex and since there aren't any updates it will work fine.. but how should a project like armbian deal with such a change? As soon as two hardware revisions are incompatible to each other, it needs more than one image, information for the end user which image he should use (and for sure, more support questions will came up cause the user picked the wrong image) and maintaining one TV box which not that exciting features ends in maintaining at least two other images. The only TV box which is officially supported by Armbian is the Beelink X2 which found the way to mainline (from device tree side). 

Images for the box can be built with armbians buildscript and in case something doesn't work as expected,  this thread fits perfect to discuss the issues. 

 

btw @winit_a opening the box, look for the second largest chip on the board which doesn't look like ramchips and google for some text you found on it might be a reasonable approach. :) 

 

Sunvell_R69__Mainboard.jpg

the one, on the leftside to the two ram chips next to UART looks like an eMMC (don't sure if my eyes are good enough, but it looks like something KLM8... is written to it which is probably cheap Samsung 8GB eMMC. As far as I know cheap nand on such boards are never BGA chips (so you should see some pads going to the NAND.

Today I did built the armbian 5.41 stretch No-Desktop Image with the armbian build-system, because I only got a 5.40 version running....

 

But I wonder at one small thing:
After installing the image I got the kernel 4.14.34, but after apt update & upgrade the sunvell-r69 is back at kernel 4.14.18

Hmm. We had some urgent updates from development branch which is already at 5.42 Splitting master and development branch, in general, brought some confusion and this is a direct consequence. Not that critical but it shell be fixed soon.

Then it needs adjustments to current u-boot version. Check output/debug/patching and observe u-boot source code in the part where a patch is applying changes.
