Guide: Setting up Armbian and SSH on Orange Pi Zero

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I wrote a guide a while back on setting up Armbian on the Orange Pi Zero, with key-based ssh access enabled. Thought I'd share it with this forum I'd love feedback, questions and also definitely send pull requests if you have any edits or changes to propose!

You just have to wait a little bit.. :P (on chrome, first it also shows page can't be reached but after ~20seconds it loads for unknown reasons).

Then burn onto a microSD card. This is most easily done with dd:

dd if=Armbian_5.34_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_xenial_next_4.13.8.img of=/dev/yoursdcardhere bs=4M && sync

 

 

We try to avoid users to use dd for writing to SD-Cards. In fact, we force users to use Etcher (see getting started guide).

Now you can finally connect the board to power via micro USB (5V at 1A to 2A, most phone chargers will work)

Same for phone chargers cause this ends quite often here, will work in the beginning and will end in flooding the support forum with 'why is armbian not stable blablabla' (by the way, DD can also end there...):

Regarding `dd`, I realize its easy to mess up, which is why I included a warning in the blog post to begin with.

 

I guess the power supply and sd card (firmware hacked to report a false size) issues arise from using cheap Chinese electronics, as that seems to be the majority of the userbase. I'm Chinese and I understand, lol :P

 

Interesting that the site appears to 404 for a while. I haven't been able to reproduce this with any browser. Could be Cloudflare messing up.

Oh nice, didn't know about that forum section. I'll repost there. Thanks Igor!
