Ramblings and progress with the RK3399



Hello All,


I recently bought Orange Pi RK3399 and had some problems with it. At this moment I've solved most of them, but still no luck with such an old OS like Ubuntu Server 16.04 or Debian 9 which were provided by the manufacturer (images to flash).


What I am thinking now is to move this board to Armbian. Will it work?


How should I in this case organize the partitions on eMMC and where to load kernel and rootfs?


I don't see this board in supported ones.

So I tried this image found on this thread (Single Armbian image for RK + AML + AW), and it goes farther:

And later today, I always have the infamous "mmc_init: -5, time 4" error when I try the run mmc_boot.
Go figure. I'm fed up with this card, nothing is stable. When it looks broken (EL3 errors, or kernel panic, or whatever) I can boot on the SDCard, but there isn't any image that boots until the end. When it gets back to life for whatever reason, I can't boot on the SDCard anymore.
I would just like to install Armbian, or push another version of the existing kernel so that I can at last use the camera.:wacko:

I guess my board may be faulty.
