Where can I find a normal, working image? The author apparently does not check their builds, no image works!

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

There are 100-200 downloads of Opi Zero images every single day only from the main download server. Don't have data for torrent download. There is not a single doubt that the problem is on your side.






Nightly images are of course untested.

Igor, I downloaded a lot of images on different platforms, and as a rule they are launched immediately and without problems. But the images of the armbian do not seem to have this. Similar answers "problems on your side" do not carry informativeness. Therefore, I would not want to flood here or that you show yourself smart. If you have a solution, then write on the case, rather than stupid answers like "on your side"!

That is true and that's why I added links with information with most frequent problems. If you already know everything, why do you ask? Orange pi Zero is the most downloaded image and you are the first one that have problems. What do you expect from me?

You're absolutely right. The few hundred people a day downloading these broken and totally untested images (check statistics yourself: https://dl.armbian.com/_download-stats/) are all fooled since these images can't work (broken, untested, 'armbian style'). And only you are brave enough to publicly inform those lazy Armbians about this severe problem. Last image has been released back in June so those lazy Armbians already fooled thousands of poor users with providing broken and untested images. It's almost a miracle that you're the first to tell the truth! Keep on rocking!

Being rude on your second post isn't smart at all. Don't expect that main maintainer and one of armbian bravest supporter reacting charmest when you claim that they did a bad job.  Just for you, I downloaded today an opi zero ubuntu legacy image, burned it to SD card and booted it without issues. If you're not convinced that the issue is 'on your side', there's no reason to stay with armbian in the future for you. If you accept that there might be an 'on your side' issue, we can try to solve it. 


Hopefully you read in the meantime the getting started guide (igors first link).  Unreliable PSU or faulty SD-cards are common issues which led to 'unstable armbian' or not booting at all. That's why we repeat this questions so often, when new users claiming that armbian isn't stable. The same applies for people using win32diskimager or dd when burning the image to an SD-card. Etcher validates the card after burning. Maybe, you hadn't any issues in the past with those other programs, but armbian recommends etcher for a reason and it's worth to use it. 


So, can you describe your setup? Did you follow the recommendations (e.g. f3 or h2testw to check your SD-Card, good PSU, short and thick micro USB cable)? As soon as we have those informations, we can try to help you getting up your OPi0 smoothly.

Serjaru's - posting is totally useless,  Igor totally kind and even  TK just some very little sarcasm.

I was looking forward to some real funny postings - ironic - trash - deep sarcasm.

Well, maybe next time Serjaru tests an image from armbian :beer:


Last but not least -  "I"  would not have written a word to him  - this is somehow the proof that the intro for new users is still ignored - although in red color. Why bother.

Another last but not least, can we use his second posting as the  intro-for-new users. I guess people would read this.
