Images rebuild only, update will follow in few days.

 

v5.04 / 1.3.2016

  • Banana M1/PRO/M1+ rebuilded
  • fixed SATA problem
  • set OTG port in HOST mode in vanilla kernel
  • wireless is working on PRO out of the box
  • added utility to switch between OTG and HOST in vanilla kernel
  • Bugs left: OTG mode not working in Vanilla, M1+ wireless not work in vanilla kernel

Tested on all Bananas. Thanks for support!

Nein, wir haben Dich/Euch zu danken!

I am running Jessie Debian on BananaPro and Intel SSD drive powered from onboard cable.

Sometimes helps me another trick when I did not see my sata drive in system after power up.

I unpluged power adaptor entirely and it started working again.

 

But do not forget to try different sata cable.

That happened for my banana pro again for linux-u-boot-bananapi-next version 5.16

[    3.592900] ahci-sunxi 1c18000.sata: PHY power up failed.
[    3.592980] ahci-sunxi: probe of 1c18000.sata failed with error -5

Downgrading to 5.01 works fine.

apt-get install linux-u-boot-bananapi-next=5.01

For some reason 5.04 not found right now:

apt-get install linux-u-boot-bananapi-next=5.04
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Version '5.04' for 'linux-u-boot-bananapi-next' was not found

Looks like regression in the configuration.

I'm afraid I have the same problem on a banana pi with the vanilla kernel on 5.16.

 

Armbian does not recognize my sata drive any more. My system is still booting from the SD card.

 

I already:

- switched the sata cable

 

- connected my SATA drive to my Mac Air and can access the files there, so the drive is not broken...

 

- downgraded Armbian to an older release 5.10. I also tried other older releases, but it didn't work and I went back to 5.10

 

- modified boot.cmd to explicitly load sun7i-a20-bananapi.dtb

 

- I also installed uboot 5.01, recompiled boot.scr

 

 

What can I do to fix this? :-)

Everything is working as expected. My power source is a good quality 2A adapter.

SATA worked for me on 5.01, but I've suddenly upgraded to 5.23.

And now now SATA :-(

I've tested on bananian 16.04 and SATA works there.

 

Does anybody has any idea how to get linux-u-boot-bananapi-next=5.01?

Or any other methods to return back SATA?

First thing - linux-u-boot-bananapipro-next should be installed instead of linux-u-boot-bananapi-next

Second - please provide output of /proc/device-tree/model

Well, latest Bananapi image from download do crashes on Banana Pro, SATA is not powered up, while it boots nice on M1 / Lamobo PRO (no sata too) ... latest self build image for Banana PRO do work fine, with SATA. I guess we need to have or better to have separate for PRO.

Mmm, today i failed with upgrading my banana pro, did apt-get upgrade, after that device won't boot from ssd anymore. Tested with new sdcard image, upgraded to linux-u-boot-bananapipro-next, but still no ssd showing up. I ran that config many months, so its no the cable or something, with older 4x kernel no problem. What can i do?

thx

Without a log, only wizard can help :) Latest image from download section works - I attached mechanical drive yesterday and it works fine. If you ware upgrading we need to see logs to give you advice what to do next.

Great, now i tested with older image, same as running before, but got no ssd again, maybe the first update with apt-get upgrade killed my ssd? Or could it be that it was not clean (because system won't boot and i had to plug off power) unmounted and so not recognized anymore? crazy

lol, forget what i stated before, after some testing with older and newest images now its running again...don't know why, but maybe some contacts are not ok, putting power cable and sata cable in and out and...tada...all fine again ;-) really crazy because i did not move anything just upgrading first. After setting right uuid now boots from sata again :-)

Moved over from Bananian to Armbian. Unfortunately with a fresh install with Armbian Debian 5.25 (4.9.7-sunxi) SATA drive is not recognized with my Banana Pro. Don't know what to do to fix this. 

 

dmesg snippet:

# dmesg | grep -i sata

Don't know what did the trick but I went back to Bananian and SATA was there again. Flashed Armbian again and now SATA works too

Hello guys, I'm new here but did research many threads/BPI forum and need a push in the right direction.

 

I have one BANANA PRO and downloaded the Ubuntu 17.10 image from the BPI dev site:

https://dev.banana-pi.org.cn/Image/BPI-M1P/ 

The image name reads:

2018-03-14-ubuntu-17.10-mate-desktop-v1.0-motion-bpi-m1p-sd-emmc.img

 

It works with BANANA PRO but no SATA.

I tried:

1.

/mnt/sdcard/bananapi/bpi-all/linux4/extlinux/dtb/sun7i-a20-bananapi-m1-plus.dtb with 

cp -v sun7i-a20-bananapro.dtb sun7i-a20-bananapi-m1-plus.dtb

 

2.

installing the above mentioned "linux-u-boot-bananapipro-next" package, but it obviously didn't work with another distribution - das U-Boot works, SATA gets recognized (woohoo), but Ubuntu's image cannot be loaded (see screenshot). 

 

- Can I "point" Armbian's U-Boot to mmcblk01 where the root of ubuntu is installed?

 

- In the folder /usr/lib/u-boot/bananapi/bpi-m1p/ there are files bananapiPRO.XXX (see screenshot). What should it tell us?

Question: do you think guys there is a way to get SATA working with this image, or it’s bigger work and "u-boot, dtb, headers, firmware image" are not "standalone" and are compiled/prepared for each Linux distribution separately? Or should I try installing not only the u-boot but dtb, headers and firmware image (yes I understand it's not optimal in terms of updating, maintaining etc.)?

 

In another thread the compatibility/resemblance between some boards were pointed out, so some boards resemble others (schematics, firmware). I used to think that Banana PI (M1/M1P) are "almost" same as Banana PRO, but now I have doubts.

 

sudo bpi-hw -A

F_AUTO=yes

/usr/bin/bpi-hw: line 77: warning: command substitution: ignored null byte in input

MODEL=Banana Pi BPI-M1-Plus

bpi-m1p

 

PS. The point of trying the Ubuntu 17.10 (Armbian works flawlessly with the board - thank you all for that!) is that CEPH 12 packages are only available under 17.10, so I guess if there is no solution I must wait.. again. And sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this, I thought there is some wisdom and experience with SATA and this problem.

 

Thanks!

What about staying on a clean, stable and supported base and dealing only with a minor userspace problem? Our Xenial base could probably be upgraded to 17.10 ... never tried but at least this should not break hardware features. 

 

3rd party builds are not a subject of support.
