Ok, understood. I can send the rk3328-nanopi-neo3-rev02.dts if I have an email address. Please note, the rk3328-codec is not supported on Neo3, instead the pcm5201a codec has been configured, this works fine. This https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute/ is best/recommended/most convenient way....
not clear what you are trying to express Armbian implementation could be few months quicker and we already provide mainline 5.8.y based kernels with many specific and general problems fixed. armbian did not work either. Yeah, DT is the same. https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/board...

OK thanks. But how long the Allwinner SoC will be in production? 10/15/20 year?

You will need to contact Allwinner for that info. IMO for right quantity, no limits.

Hi,

can anybody tell me the Longevity Strategy support of Allwinner H3 SoC? It looks like it was released in 2014.


Don't worry about. Support is almost fully mainlined by now.

I don't understand why you continue to spout the same meaningless diatribe no matter what the question or subject of the post is. Meaningless? Read once again.

What knowledge is available that will help to improve the nanopc-t4's functionality under Linux. It is clearly possible, just not outside of the friendlyarm ecosystem.

Friendly is using a very old kernel, 4.?? which they have modified with lcd device drivers and a device tree 'dts'. This is the kernel where this hardware was brought up and shipped with the SoC.

Hello, Will you be contributing a device tree to the Linux kernel so that linux can support these boards properly?

Now proceed with manual: https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/ and act upon it.
Try. If you have previously recorded to this SD card systems from Frendlyelec or other systems (or the card came with a pre-installed system), you will have to completely erase the SD card before recording Armbian. Systems from Frendlyelec use GPT, which blocks the normal launch of other systems fr...

Are you saying to try different sd card, different power supply?


Yes. Just different, to rule out SD card and PSU defects ... At least SD cards are troublesome. Make sure to use images from here: https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-m4-v2/

Does LED lights flashes after a while when you add power?
- different SD card
- different power supply
- no eMMC attached
- correct image (for M4 V2 ,not for M4)

You don't format, but boot from a clean SD image and transfer the system once again.
