Next step would be to display something on my screen. I'm thinking I will be able to just connect the video cable to the NanoPi directly, bypassing the cheapo control board, but I don't know if that is even possible. It might need to do something with the signal first? <-- my Question. Can I use (a...

Will the new (v1.1) Neo2 (non Plus or Core) now allways be with soldered Header-Pins? - because there is no ordering option (like on the normal Neo) for with or without Pins. Will it work in the silver NAS-Case? Is the 1GB RAM option available or only for future use? At the product page the "ne...

@guidol I have a FriendlyElec NanoPi-NEO-Plus2
Can you share your /proc/config.gz just in case? Models are different so might not be useful at all

OK - did only see the Neo2 at the title....

Here is the config.gz from /proc/ ou tof armbian for the Neo2

you could do that with fdisk and resize2fs. You should write down the start-sector, delete the partition, create a new bigger partition, set boot flag reboot and then resize2fs....

For DB9 to the NanoPi serial Port you need a TTL-Levelshifter and 115.200 Baud

As I know before the kernel also the u-boot gets loaded from the SDcard and will produce the first serial output. without a u-boot from the card there shouldnt be a output. Did you test another card? Has another OS bootet successfully on that board? Or is it a n"new" board for you and it u...
2 ideas:
shouldnt the first line read as

but you have there
#! /bin/sh
(with a space)

Does you /etc/rc.local execute rights - like from chmod 755 /etc/rc.local

Is /bin/sh the right shell for the commands do you use?
maybe you could try

I would like to know this, too. I am strongly considering purchasing this board, but without an eMMC module, the board is a lot less appealing. NanoPi K2 eMMC module is available here: http://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=209 and the adapter for reading/writing ...

All is good now. I installed Armbian and now I see the full 1024 MB of ram. My OLED screen doesn't work anymore so I am figuring that out, any suggestions? Sorry I cant help here... I also got a normal Neo (not Neo2) with OLED-Hat, but the display will only run with a (in my opinion) kernel-module/...

And which image did you use to boot?

I would do that but the problem is that the board will only boot from the USB port and it won't boot from the sd card slot. Hmm...
