using the usb-otg only as usb port

Recommended Posts

Hey.

I'm trying to install octoprint on my Opi Zero +2, using the latest armbian image I found here on the site.

Installation works fine, and I get the web interface up and running no problem.

But I have connected power to the board on the gpio pins, and want to use the mini-usb to connect to the 3d printer.

I have enabled usbhost0-3 in the hardware in armbian-config, but still it seems the printer cannot be reached.

I read some older posts regarding other boards, where the solution seemed to be recompiling. Is this a necessity, and if so, could someone please point me to a walkthrough?

 

Regards

Anders

I've soldered two wires to pin-hole 2 and 4 on the expansion port. 5v is supplied from an ATX pc psu.

 

Heres the dmesg command after unplugging/plugging:

What is this expansion board ? Do you have schematics ?

no - only pin 2 and 4. Should pin 3 also be connected? If so - why? As far as I can tell, it's function is listed as: TWI0_SDA / PA12 / GPIO12

Pin 2 is connected to 5v, and pin 4 to ground - both on the atx supply. According to the link I posted, pin 4 (among others) are ground on the Opi.

Since I've been able to boot, and install armbian, having it powered like this, I assume the power is connected correctly?

According to pinout provided in the link :

1 	5V
2 	GND
3 	USB-DM2
4 	USB-DP2
5 	USB-DM3
6 	USB-DP3 

So, GND on pin 2 should be connected to GND of ATX, and your USB connector should use USB-DM2/USB-DP2 ...

I'm sorry - I've probably been too vague in describing what I'm aiming for.

You're refering to the 1x13 header. I've connected power to the 2x13 header.

But my problem is:

I want to use the small micro-usb port that for the printer. The port that I would otherwise normally use for powering the board.

That's the reason I've connected power to the pins of the 2x13 header.

But I can't seem to get that port to work as a regular usb host.

In this case , you absolutely needs to have USB node in DT with : dr_mode = "host";

Using 1x13 header could be use easily with adaptors like :

Ok. Could you give some details on how to get this done?

First, install DeviceTree compiler :

wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/d/device-tree-compiler/device-tree-compiler_1.4.7-3_arm64.deb
dpkg -i device-tree-compiler_1.4.7-3_arm64.deb

Second, de-compile the main DT of OPiZeroPlus2-H5 :

dtc -@ -I dtb -O dts -o sun50i-h5-orangepi-zero-plus2.dts-NEW /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h5-orangepi-zero-plus2.dtb

Edit the sun50i-h5-orangepi-zero-plus2.dts-NEW file, locate the node "usb@1c19000", and add the property ' dr_mode = "host"; ' into it, and change "status" to "okay". Then, recompile it after having done a backup :

mv /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h5-orangepi-zero-plus2.dtb /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h5-orangepi-zero-plus2.dtb-ORIG
dtc -@ -I dts -O dtb -o /boot/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h5-orangepi-zero-plus2.dtb sun50i-h5-orangepi-zero-plus2.dts-NEW

Then, do a "sync" followed by "reboot" ...

 

I wasn't able to test complete recipe, since my USB-OTG cable is taking the 5V from the board, but it is not present when PSU is attached to header pins 4/6 .
