Such upgrade path was never tested, no warranty, ... but it might work. Consider that we don't support Wheezy or Jessie. It's too troublesome/time consuming.

I would strongly suggest you to migrate on Debian Stretch (start from a clean build) with kernel 4.19.y

thanks igor,

 

of course it's impossibile support all release, but IF i want to try to upgrade to Stretch what command i have to do..?

 

i change the source.list and the system will upgrade, but i'm worryed about the kernel...

 

if it doesen't work i'll reinstall the system from zero

Rather do that.

 

Upgrading to Stretch will not work without upgrading kernel. 3.4.y is too old for Stretch ... well if you don't have systemd than it might even work. Try.

i'm thinking to upgrade the kernel and then upgrade the distro, but i don't know how to "easy" upgrade the kernel

is there a repository or a package .deb whit newer kernel.?

update to the lastest, to get latest armbian-config (or install from our repository by hand apt install armbian-config), then change kernel to NEXT (system -> alternative kernels) and you are done. Then you need to conduct a distribution upgrade which is out of our power. You will need to replace wheezy with jessie or stretch in our /etc/apt/sources.list.d/armbian.list
