Armbian for TV box rk3328

Recommended Posts

Hello,

First things first, thank you for the armbian image for a5x max @balbes150 . Apart for the poorly implemented bluetooth, hardware wise because i don't believe it's a software issue there (it almost doesn't work under the android version that the box was shipped with ) , everything but the ir remote that i haven't tested at all, works great an smooth.

Since, i think this is by default, the kernel is missing joypad-gamepad drives, i tried to complile them myself with a good degree of success. I don't know how to get the exact sources for 5.98 version, so i compiled the latest armbian, only kernel and uboot and tried out that kernel image.
The box is booting and i am only getting some errors when i check the output of dmesg.

 

I have a request,

if possible, @balbes150 can you give me your .config file for a5x max so i may try to re-compile the kernel with with the correct configuration plus the extra module?

 

I might be missing something else in the whole procedure, so any thoughts or tips will be greatly appreciated :D

 

Thank you,

Stratos.

Hello,

 

I bought TV Box A95X Z2 - RK3318 from Aliexpress and tried running the latest armbian images from this topic. I tried using whole bunch of DTBs and none booted. I'll try to list and try all of them later but I have a bad feeling none will work.

 

Did anyone try and found the working armbian for that model? What else can I try to boot it up?

 

Thank you

Hello,

i tried to compile the kernel, also from the tv-box branch and even tried the a5x max+ configuration (i know it's a different board but i was playing around and testing :) ) but with no luck.
With the limited knowledge that i have and from what it came to be, insufficient research, i wasn't able to build kernel that has complete support of the features that i need (wifi is always missing from my kernel and i have no idea how to patch and include the 8723cs drivers ). 

So i have a request, if possible @balbes150 can you include either with modules, or in kernel support the HID drivers for gamepads and joysticks?

It's would be nice to try the box as retropie machine, but if you haven't got the time (or the will :) ) forget about my request :D

 

Thank you for your time.
Stratos.

I only seem to have the ability to choose older kernels there.

Well, i don't know where else you could find something newer. 
Sorry! 

Maybe someone else can help you with that.
