Bluetooth in Phicomm N1 (ARMBIAN 5.67 user-built Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 4.19.0-rc7-aml-s9xxx . 20181117)

Recommended Posts

 Hellow there,

I installed Armbian_5.67_Aml-s9xxx_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.19.0-rc7_desktop_20181117 to my Phicomm N1 box and found that the WIFI/Bluetooth is not available. 

 

Anyone can help me install the drivers?

Maybe @balbes150 could you help with informations about to integrate the Cypress w43455 - if you do ask in this thread:

 

The case of the Phicomm N1 looks - for me - very nice ;)  A Bit like a NeXT-device in white :)
Where did you get your device and whats the normal price?

@guidol  I am trying to upload Phicomm N1 to my eBay shop. But its postage is higher than the device itself. I can say it is bloody cheap. Just 30usd/set plus shipping charges from China to worldwide. 7*7*3 Inch in size, less than 2 lb. I think the shipping charges will be 40usd by FedEx to the USA.

Power Adapter: Input 110-240V~50/60Hz AC; Output 12V/2A DC

Yes I read this on the power adaptor it says Output 12V/2A and the adaptor size is even smaller than those of Netgear routers.  This is a really cool device!

Interesting box, especially with all the Linux distributions provided by the Chinese community.
But I can't find it for sale anywhere, even in China. I could see it in JD (for 1099 RMB!), but it's now been removed.

Have you tried the latest version of the image with the kernel 5 ?
