I just used the image that came preinstalled on the sdcard as I ordered a Neo2 with the OLED and case as I am new to nano sized computers but not new to Linux. ! When you ordered a NanoPi Neo2 with OLED-Hat and (the black) case like: http://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&pr...

I am only seeing 512MB Ram and I have a 1 GB board, anything I can do so it sees the rest of the ram? Tried to figure it out but no clue.


If you could tell us which board do you have with 1GB then we could give you the right link to a image.
And which image did you use to boot?
What could be the reason? I connect NanoPi A64 and it does not turn on. Only the green LED is on. On the CD installed ubuntu mate. When you turn on the processor does not heat up at all. Is it possible to know what's the reason through Uart? You could try a different OS-Image on you uSD-Card if the...

Hello Guidol,
Happy new year!
But, yes you're right, the sound is really low
Thanks you so much.

Happy new year also to you :)
You will need a active speaker then the volume will be OK!
You are welcome :)
USB port pins (1-5 on the single-row pins?) This will work if those pins aren’t being useful by the NanoHat OLED, which will be connected to the board by the two sets of pins (single-row and double-row). Does the NanoHat OLED use the USB pins? Thank you for taking the time to read this message. You...
Today I received my NanoPi Neo Core2 Kit. While building all pieces together I wondered about that the case couldnt be closed when the heatsink is installed on top of the cpu board... OK - if the heatsink is installed the case would suspend the airflow and the pictures at the webpage do only show th...
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... I think you should try to connect a USB-TTL-serial adapter to the neo plus2 and to interrupt the uboot countdown (mostly very short). Mostly there is an option to boot ...

Dear All , There is a noise on line outs from power up continuously and hazardous sound. when amplify the lines , it becomes much greater. I guess that lines tracks are not kept away from digital tracks in PCB design. I got some success swapping the power-supply for a better one (from smartphone-po...
I plugged a passive speaker on LR & GND pins (PCB v1.1) Do you have an idea ? a PASSIVE Speaker could be much to quiet.... you need an speaker with amplifier. And with Amplifier and the right asound.conf you also have to raise the volume inside the alsamixer... Which Audio-Out device is shown i...
The new NEO2 I just received has a non locking uSD card socket. Do you got an old Neo2 with locking uSD-socket?
