The list of models that are running Armbian (Amlogic, Rockchip etc)

Recommended Posts

This theme is designed to help potential users with the selection of equipment to run Armbian on TV boxes and other devices with ARM chips. I propose to leave here information about specific models, with a description of the technical parameters of the equipment, which specific versions of Armbian images and what settings or additional steps have been launched.

 

Pay attention. In this thread are only a good or not run the system on specific models TV box. All discussions and questions, post in other topics.

Nexbox a95x(soc amlogic s905 ram 1 storage 8)

All image with kernel 3.14 work with generic gxbb_p200.dtb(old u-boot). Don't have now this box, so don't have opportunity check mainline.  It have some exotic wi-fi module without open sources drivers, so no wi-fi.

 

Sunvell T95X(soc amlogic s905x ram 2 storage 8).

All image with kernel 3.14 and mainline. With stock firmware don't need manipulate with .dtb files(3.14 kernel), for mainline need generic p212 dtb. Wi-fi  sci9082c, didn't test.

Spoiler

It don't have open sources drivers...

I'm currently running a Beelink GT1 ultimate (S912, 3Go DDR4, 32Go) with your armbian 5.37 based on 3.14.29 debian stretch without specifying any dtb file.  It is used as a server with openmediavault and homeassistant. I'm running armbian from sd card.

I just made upgrades and got armbian-config 5.64 with an uptime of 70 days.

I'm using scshion v88 pro, s905x, 1gb ram.

It works great with all builds i tried (in latest builds with 4.x kernel there is no wifi, i never had time to compile drivers for RTL8189ES). MBR partition table also works with latest builds.

Still android 7.1 (installed version for nexbox a95x) is much faster for multimedia and until we get fluid youtube in chromium i will stick with android.
