Hello FriendlyElec,

maybe any response? Ideas? Tipps?


Perhaps try https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-fire3/
It comes with more recent kernel and many additional fixes.
Hi, I have tried the out the old kernel you mentioned. In this case g_ether is also missing according to modproble. Is there a manual way to add g_ether? I did not find g_ether mentioned in the Armbian documentation. Armbian documentation does not cover all possible kernel related functions. For th...
from that statement it would seem "All non-armbian users are wrong." ...well....thanks anyway.... Undo my relation to Armbian and think, explore and make your own conclusion based on science, facts. There was a lot of research on this topic and if you would invest some time to find that, ...
MIPI camera support should also work since we use the same kernel (default images) with a few fixes. it's not working, since RkISP and both camera sensor drivers, which can be used with NanoPi T/M/Neo 4 (ov13xx and ov46xx) disabled by default. (so user need to recompile kernel). the bigger problem ...

Nope. It doesn't. Debian packages update is irrelevant.

It's demo/proof of concept image and (Dietpi) is a rebranding (with some user space mods) of the same creation. Without any low level change.

Yes, you have all rights to be wrong :)
Update: Just a final test before actually giving up, I did try to install UbuntuCore from the Friendly Elec software download section and after installing checked the max CPU freq using lscpu ~# lscpu Architecture: aarch64 Byte Order: Little Endian CPU(s): 4 On-line CPU(s) list: 0-3 Thread(s) per c...
Good day! I've had the Nanopi Neo2 v1.0 for sometime now, used for mostly for NAS solution. the v1.0 is the one being carried by my supplier here. No v1.1 yet Lately I installed armbian monitor to monitor system resources. Then I stumbled upon the min and max frequency when I checked using # cpufre...
Armbian supports Docker OOB.

Wifi works on M4 and MIPI camera support should also work since we use the same kernel (default images) with a few fixes.

Sorry, my fault. I forgot to say I have an M4. Thanks again.


OK. Sadly we haven't found this hack for M4 yet :(

Does the NanoPi NEO support DHT22 temperature-humidity sensor connected via 1wire bus?

I use the DHT22 sensors on my Raspi2, they work fine.

Thank you.

OK. But I have no choice. Just 120 measuring units with FriendlyElec Linux distro on it. No way to change to another distro. Why? You will burn 120 cards faster and you will not need to use any brain power for that operation. All optimisations are implemented here https://github.com/armbian/build b...
I have more then 100 pcs nanoPi NEO already installed and solder inside measuring units, with several sensor connected to each one.

OK, thank you for these links. I actually tried 4.19.20, but g_ether did not work. Does it matter if I use bionic or stretch download. As it was not working on Armbian, I ask in their forum and received as answer that it doesn't work: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9530-nano-pi-neo-air-ssh-using-u...
Hi, I would like to know if someone was able to use g_ether on the NanoPi Neo Air. It is very important for me to be able to connect via ethernet to the NanoPi Neo Air using the USB interface (the micro usb port, not using the other usb interfaces on the 2,54mm headers). I have tried Armbian and th...
If you are using their sources I can't help. No idea how they put their images together ... this is ARM, there are not much standard solution and GRUB is not used at all.

The integrated WiFi will not enter Monitor mode under FriendlyCore. Can anyone tell me the 'chipset' used for WiFi on the T4, or if there is an alternative driver that supports this function.


OOB most of the drivers doesn't support such features.

Is there any way to overclock nanopc T4 and can we select which cpu group will be used ? Armbian comes overclocked OOB. You can go a little more, but you need damn good cooling and you risk failures.

So is it worth waiting for a "non-amateur solution"? Stable and fast core for this chip / board. Yes. As I understand it, the RK3399 is not bad at all, on its basis almost all manufacturers have made ready-made boards. And the board (M4) in the Raspbery factor is generally an ingenious de...

I'd love to see and try the clean kernel of Ubuntu 4.18. And at its base to assemble your own system. We are waiting for the release of a good version of Ubuntu Core 18.04 with kernel 4.18, because there is a lot of potential on the M4 board. Sincerely, Pavel. This is probably the best (and only) U...
Thanks for sharing your recommendation. Armbian looks like a nice project. I'll keep an eye on it. For now, it looks as if the image for this platform is not up to the point where I can use it. Hardware support (particularly gpu-side) seems to be behind the friendlydesktop image. Most of people beh...
1. The armbian image is a work in progress and thus not fully supported. 2. It is based on a similarly out of date kernel. Armbian has higher standards and takes word support seriously. Since kernel features for this platform are not fully done, builds have a label "testing". In Armbian s...

Right now, I managed to flash an Arch Linux rootfs to an eMMC card and it loads perfectly, although I've tried replacing the existing uboot and kernel with no success.

I also would like to know how to get the NanoPC-T4 to boot exclusively from an M.2 SSD. I'll likely be running DietPi. You can't boot directly from NvME.

I agree on the slow response.. I was not shipped the right heat sink so I am just using Raspberry pi heatsinks as a temporary measure so some of my problem may be heat related.

Android is just "a shell". NVME support is kernel problem and it works there for some time. But if support is enabled in kernel that is part of the Android ... I don't know. Don't use it.
