Strange thing ... in WiKi from the manufacturer there is detailed information about the connector (and therefore about the cable) http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPi_M4 If you are completely too lazy to look for information - I will do it for you, it seems to become the norm ... http:/...
Hi there - I am using a NANOPI M4 with two camera MCAM400. I need an extension to the 150mm FPC cable that is delivered with the cam. I noticed that these are different from any Raspberry Pi Cam. The pitch and the number of connectors are different. Does anybody know where I can find 300mm or more ...

Well, I don’t know about T3, I don’t have it.
But in M4 everything is there, I take the data from there.
Operating System - Frendly Core.
I do not use Android.
Nice little project. Is the CPU temperature available on these boards or did you add this yourself with an external sensor? I am running Android on a T4 and I have been trying to get this working but no success so far. I might be missing the kernel driver for it. I might need a JNE to get this. The...
Hello, friends! To maintain interest in the board, I will post some of my photos and videos. https://forum.armbian.com/uploads/monthly_2019_08/IMG_20190811_144028_HDR.jpg.5a74552ad74334172f4df2d2fe6f1d8b.jpg https://forum.armbian.com/uploads/monthly_2019_08/IMG_20190811_144050_HDR.jpg.79b4594150108...
i also have the same problem import RPi.GPIO as GPIO RuntimeError: This module can only be run on a NanoPi NEO/NEO2! I never understood such questions ... You buy boards, you plan to do something with them. So what the hell no one can read WiKi from the manufacturer !!!!!!! Why don't search engines...

I am glad that the work is being done and it turns out. Well done specialists from Armbian. But I have a question - how can I get away from the XFCE shell? I understand its advantages, but I would also like to have a system without a graphical shell (not turned off, but simply not installed), becaus...
igorp, thanks for the reply. Just most people want to have a finished product in the form of an operating system image. And with the RK3399 everything is not at all clear. No one can make a GOOD BASE version for a long time. What is the reason I don’t know, but I see the 3399 as a buggy chip that th...
We probably should turn to wizards or magicians to find out the details of your problem ... What kind of operating system? Which version? Is there a graphical shell? If you are not ready to provide more detailed data to help you, then put Armbian, nothing will work there either, but this is the stan...
File sharing MEGA.
The question is to him ... why can not I download a braz size of 2 GB?
Maybe because a simple user has no limit on downloading files more than 1 GB ...
Fix this problem by switching to another repository.
Hello. First of all, I would like to say words of gratitude to the manufacturer for the possibility of powering my favorite board from a voltage of 12 volts. It is implemented in two ways: 1. SATA HAT 2. PSU Module Of course it is very good and convenient. BUT! I would like to make a manufacturer ma...
everything is very simple ))
sudo service hostapd stop
sudo apt-get autoremove hostapd
Quick question. Can the SATA HAT power the NanoPi M4 or do you need one power supply for the M4 and a seperate one for the SATA HAT? From WiKi - The output current of the 12V to 5V DC/DC regulator is up to 8A From personal experience - a 12 volt power supply unit with 5 amps is enough with a margin...
Hi. NanoPi M4 has an GPIO 24pin header with PCI-E 2x support. Is there any adapter or hat: GPIO -> PCI-E slot? Soon there will be a hat for Sata http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/NanoPi_M4_SATA_HAT . But iron is not the most important thing ... the most important thing is software support,...
Thank you Pavel, so such support depends on OS? (sorry for the dumb question) I know Armbian but I want to use Android (since I want to use the 13.2MP MIPI Camera Module which seems to work only on Android), what about support on Android? thank you The motherboard manufacturer doesn’t very quickly ...
thank you very much for the help, can I hope in a future support or not? You should turn to the alternative operating system "Armbian", there it seems to solve the problem of including SPI. And of course, taking the opportunity to ask the manufacturer a question - friends !!! Make a norma...
Can I connect my Nanopi M4 and with the Friendlyelec 2.8 inch resistive touch screen LCD 240x320 ? Hello AndreaN. In theory, you can connect it, but there are some points: - in the current builds of the operating systems from Friendly there is no support for the SPI interface , and it is the main o...
Hello Stephen. Similar work of all LEDs is the norm. Red - constantly on, not blinking, this is a kind of power indication, or rather, device operation. Green - blinking, it is said that the device is working (loading and / or doing calculations). Disable them ... theoretically, this can be done pro...
Hello. I do not have a T4 board, but there is an M4. If you first look at the comparison of the GPIO connectors of these boards, they are similar, the chip is obvious too. To begin with the question - what exactly do you want to get from the GPIO? If you look at this thread - https://www.friendlyarm...
Also waiting for the data of the camera. Coming soon. Of course it's interesting to try a speed of over 30FPS. I think the Chinese will celebrate the new year and continue to work on optimizing the Linux operating system. Moreover, kernel 4.20 has already been launched (I tried the build for "D...
Hello, friends! Continuing to experiment with GPIO M4 boards ... Today, experiments with the 128x64 I2C OLED display were continued, but already in conjunction with the BMP280 sensor. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Pavelectric/M4/master/128_64_280.jpg The display is of course too small for simul...
Our method is to create overlays for those functions which is most convenient way of manipulating hw properties.

Good... We continue to get the truth about our fees with you) The answer to the technical support for the inclusion of the SPI interface was simple - read http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index.php/FriendlyThings_for_RK3399#SPI It says about the Android operating system, and in their opinion, everyt...
Hello friends.
And who will tell me ...?
How to enable and work with the SPI bus on the M4 board ???
I can not find a single mention of it.
OS - Ubuntu.

Hello.
If you have an eMMC card reader, you can just remove the image of the memory card (I do).
It still depends on what exactly you want to keep ...

Very pleased with the presence of standard hardware for optics. After all, with the "M12" there is an incredible number of adapters, at least on a telescope! In the photo camera from a competing company))) But the idea is clear, I think. http://www.arducam.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/im...
Well friends ... FriendlyARM threw another riddle :) After the release of the new distribution kit (on the old kernel 4.4.143), errors occur when installing Mate Desktop. Let's fix them: 1. $ sudo apt-get autoremove gvfs This will remove the “broken version” of GVFS and allow you to install Mate-Des...
Hello, theshade . Did you manage to do it on the new available core image? Now I have not tried to collect Mate on the newest version of the system. The other day I will definitely try and write about the results. Try using a "kernel" image labeled " SD ", i.e. for direct recordi...

You were right, Pavel, in rk3399-sd-friendlycore-bionic-4.4-arm64-20181219.img camera magically starts to work! Thanks for this info. I wonder which kernel version is it in this new release. As for the kernel - everything is simple - 4.4.143, which means no changes. Those who are too lazy to go to ...
theshade, Please read my thread - viewtopic.php?f=62&t=2036
There I tried to describe in as much detail as possible the procedure for obtaining a good working space.
I have this camera, but it was not working. Now a new camera is coming to me, I think it should earn. As soon as it arrives, plug it in and write about the results. For information - the manufacturer has released new versions of operating systems "... 20181219.img" Try it, maybe there are ...
Thanks for the info! OK, alas not so simple. I'm interested particularly in OV5647 and IMX219, because their drivers are well-studied by community (e.g. 6to9 on github). I'd love to provide funding/equipment to support the discussed RPI "adapter" research work, if you are willing to do it...
It's amateur based development so it goes slow. Ubuntu or Rockchip are not doing anything in this regard. So is it worth waiting for a "non-amateur solution"? Stable and fast core for this chip / board. As I understand it, the RK3399 is not bad at all, on its basis almost all manufacturer...
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.
So friends ... let's talk about Ubuntu 18.04 "Core" and its further transformation into Mate. Next, I will point out all the steps to get a normally functioning (of course, this is quite a bold expression) PC with the "Mate" desktop. So start: $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get...
I'd like to see a transitional shield (hat) for two Mini PCIe Card slots.
In theory, it will be passive and does not require strong production costs.
Dear developers - please make a similar device.
In general, a strange development of events ... The camera does not work (neither under Linux nor under Android). The image output to the MIPI (DSI) connector is generally only a theory. The question is - where is the functionality declared by the manufacturer? What is the money paid for ???? And af...

The module does not heat up at all.
I assumed that the camera is defective, in the support it does not pay attention.
