Question

I purchased a 1GB EspressoBin off of Amazon with the plan to run Armbian + OMV on it.  Here's what it looked like upon initial boot with factory firmware. Which showed 1GB version.

TIM-1.0
WTMI-armada-17.10.1-b90dbf0
ENTER init_ddrgen
DDR_TOPOLOGY is 4 :	DDR3, 1CS 1G
WTMI_CLOCK=2

Fill memory before self refresh...done

Now in Self-refresh Mode

Restore termination values to original values
Exited self-refresh ...

Is someone on Amazon selling 512MB versions of EspressoBins as 1GB versions? Or am I doing it wrong?

 

?

One thing I noticed was during my initial boot:

DDR_TOPOLOGY is 4 : DDR3, 1CS 1G

vs later after flashing flash-image-1g-1000_800_boot_sd_and_usb.bin 

DDR_TOPOLOGY is 2 : DDR3, 2CS 512M + 512M

So I did some initial searching around and found this post mentioning the file which exists in this dropbox link to  espressobin-rootfs-v0.8-20180129-REL.tar.gz under boot --> bootloader

espressobin-bootloader-cpu-1000-ddr3-1cs-1g-atf-ga3306ab-uboot-gaee49fc-20180129-REL.bin

which is apparently what I needed.  Looks like I have an ESPRESSObin_v5_0_1 board which is ddr3-1cs-1g  

 

This is what I got after I flashed with the ddr3-1cs-1g u-boot

So should I use this u-boot  for armbian?

 

Edit: I contacted Global Scale Technologies tech support 

support@globalscaletechnologies.com

to let them know of my issues and they said they will make sure the documentation and files on https://espressobin.net website will get updated.

Any thoughts on getting my environment variables setup using the stock EspressoBin Bootloader along with an armbian image?

 

env default -a
setenv ethaddr F0:AD:4E:05:38:8F
setenv image_name boot/Image
setenv fdt_name boot/dtb/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb

setenv bootcmd 'mmc dev 0; ext4load mmc 0:1 $kernel_addr $image_name;ext4load mmc 0:1 $fdt_addr $fdt_name;setenv bootargs $console root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rw rootwait net.ifnames=0 biosdevname=0; booti $kernel_addr - $fdt_addr'

saveenv
run bootcmd

I compiled the above from a couple different sources to no avail. 

But it's getting hungup on boot

So after flashing this Armbian image with Etcher. 

 

And setting these environment variables in the EspressoBin console via serial connection:

 

env default -a
setenv ethaddr F0:AD:4E:05:36:97
setenv image_name boot/Image
setenv fdt_name boot/dtb/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb

setenv bootcmd 'mmc dev 0; ext4load mmc 0:1 $kernel_addr $image_name;ext4load mmc 0:1 $fdt_addr $fdt_name;setenv bootargs $console root=/dev/mmcblk1p1 rw rootwait net.ifnames=0 biosdevname=0; booti $kernel_addr - $fdt_addr'

saveenv
run bootcmd

I was only off by one character in the bootcmd --> root=/dev/mmcblk1p1  which was why it wasn't booting.

 

But now it finally boots into Armbian!

This happens if you use a mainline kernel on SD. /dev/mmcblk0p1 is still correct if you use a legacy kernel (see the more detailed instructons here).

 

This is the first time an EspressoBin appeared in the wild with only one DDR RAM chip.

Is the memory chip soldered to the bottom (next to the 3720 and Topaz) or to the top of the PCB ? (let me guess: bottom)

 

EDIT: I have already compiled new images for the 1G EspressoBin with only one DDR RAM chip on board (1g-1cs) using DDR_TOPOLOGY_4. They are already here. Do they work on your device ?

Looks like the RAM chip is on the bottom. Here are top and bottom photos of the board.

Thank you for building those new images! It seemed to take just fine.

EDIT: I have already compiled new images for the 1G EspressoBin with only one DDR RAM chip on board (1g-1cs) using DDR_TOPOLOGY_4. They are already here. Do they work on your device ?

 

@ebin-dev What's the benefit to using Armbian's Bootloader over the factory images from Global Scale Technologies?

Armbian's bootloader is always up to date - for all flavours of EspressoBins. You can even select CPU_DDR frequencies for your use case.

(you can see the difference if you compare the versions of the three software components of the firmware in your logs above)

 

The factory images used to be outdated: 17.02 was preinstalled on all devices purchased last summer. Device support for the mPCIe interface was very limited.

In August last year Armbian therefore started to distribute firmware images with a final release of 17.10 versions in early October with enhanced device support i.e. for the mPCIe interface. In November 17.06 factory images were published and finally 17.10 factory images this month - compiled in January. 

 

In the end all those firmware images are compiled from sources provided by Marvell on github - but Armbian (driven by a small group of enthusiastic developers) can react more quickly to the demand expressed by forum members.

 

There is a lot more to say about the distribution itself.
