No Boot, same as with kamils image.


This very first build is based on his work + a few of our addons and fixes. We had odd troubles with booting this thingy from an SD card, as you can read above, and I guess nobody even tried SPI yet.  Now you did (thanks!) and now we know it doesn't work :(

Problems are expected at this stage and a label "testing" will stay on images for some time.

Of course, I didn't try from SPI (it may requires another recipe, according to Ayufan's build process producing both rksd_loader.img and rkspi_loader.img).

That was not meant to be evil. It should only give feedback

You can still have the U-Boot reside on SDCard or eMMC, and place your rootfs on your SSD ...

dudes, I am sorry for the intrusion, I see, you are having a hardcore debugging party with this, not willing to interfere with the question I am sick of on my own already. But nobody on their forum answers, and I cannot buy it not knowing the answer.

Did someone of you run iozone test with a UHS-I capable SD card on Rockpro? please, show numbers. 

 

Added later. Finally it's confirmed. RockPro does support UHS-I (with SDR104 incl.) The maximum reached is about 66 MB/s, given the rockchip 150MHz limit. just as good as other rk3399 boards. :)

Tested both images no luck, stuck at


From the download section? Those were tested and confirmed working on a few boards. Can you try again with another SD card and provide your board revision number.

Today i tested nand-sata-install

 

1. try with sd-card and nvme

works fine :thumbup:

 

2. try with spi and usb-hdd

after reboot, filesystem isn't resized. And only works on usb2 and not on usb3. But this are old news.

 

root@rockpro64:~# df -h

tmpfs           200M     0  200M   0% /run/user/0

 

3. try with sd-card and usb-hdd

after reboot, filesystem isn't resized. But it boot from usb3. :thumbup:

tmpfs           200M     0  200M   0% /run/user/0

 

So, how can we fix the resize problem? I can help with logs and testing ;)

I found the error. I am using the UART console and forgot to remove the TX pin before booting.
Is there any solution for this problem?

Yes. Removing TX pin connection? :P If you don't have all of them connected, a garbage can be detected and that triggers boot breaking which has to be enabled, otherwise you can't get into the u-boot when you want to get in. It can be improved by changing from "press any key" to "press this key" -> https://www.armbian.com/get-involved

An Armbian installation on ROCKPro64 v2.1 (2GB) with SD-Card (boot) and NVMe SSD (root) is booting and running fine.

 

An Armbian installation on ROCKPro64 v2.0 (4GB) with SD-Card (boot) and NVMe SSD (root) don't boot. I am getting kernel panic. https://pastebin.com/8uPaSEcD
