Are there any plans to make this board officially supported by openwrt?

This you need to ask OpenWRT folks.
@igorp Your comments are confusing me. I am trying hard to explain you where you are, but I can't really do much. You suggested armbian would be a better OS for better community support. I heard you and pointed out the issue I ran into with armbian. I am not saying its without issues, but if you wa...
You recommended armbian because, as you said "You can simply use Armbian which is better than Ubuntu in just about any case. And it has active community support, the most important part, which Ubuntu will never have." It's just a recommendation, a hint that can save you a lot of time. I'm...
I tried Armbian first, but ran into inconsistencies in the network port bring-up. That issue does not seem affect friendlycore-lite-focal. I've posted on the Armbian forum: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17286-nanopi-r4s-4gb-network-ports-have-inconsistent-behavior-on-startup-with-armbian-21021/ A...
Is there a way to install standard arm64 Ubuntu 20.04 on the R4S? Do I need the serial console to do this? Alternatively, can the kernel in friendlycore-lite-focal be upgraded from 4.19 to 5.10.x? Any tips/pointers would be greatly appreciated. - there is no way, because standard arm64 won't boot. ...
Hello, According to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases Ubuntu 16.04.7 LTS would end support in April 2021. Are there any negative impact continuing to use zeropi_sd_friendlycore-xenial_4.14_armhf_20191219.img.zip? Are there any plans to release a newer image? You don't need to worry. https://docs.arm...

Hello, I have a number of SBCs with the Rockchip 3328 SOC; now the NanoPi NEO3 too. Oddly, the NanoPi NEO3 is the most power hungry and the hottest of the bunch, despite running at the same frequency (1.3 GHz). I'm running stock FriendlyCore, with the latest updates. This suggests that the CPU volt...
Hi everyone, I try to set up a PN532 (correctly set to HSU mode) module on a NanoPi Neo Air with UART. I'm using a 3.3V output, ground, and UART1_TX/GPIOG6 connected to PN532 Rx and UART1_RX/GPIOG7 connected to PN532 Tx. I'm trying to read serial with : cat /dev/ttyS1 (I've tried S0,S1,S2) or with ...

Hi everybody,

I want to load ubuntu 20.04 to core4418 (s5p4418). Is there any image file.

Good Day.

If you can come up with something like this:
you will also have all future versions.

You have a really great product R4S. Thanks for it!

How do I get the board out of the housing? I would have to go to the UART interface


screws are behind rubber pads

Hi when I log in to my nanopi-neo it says this.

Is there a way to upgrade it?

Thank you for the info :D Would it be possible using Armbian to connect it using VNC to have a GUI accessing from an external computer?

There is Armbian https://www.armbian.com/nanopi-r4s/ so it is possible.

Hi all! I currently can not find the eflash image friendlycore-xenial_4.14 for Nanopi NEO CORE. Only found nanopi-neo-core_eflasher_openwrt_4.14_armhf_YYYYMMDD.img.zip.

I might want to evaluate M4 and have my truck all set. I've been glancing through the discussion and couldn't discover anything.

Is there a connector I have to run nvme ( M.2 2280 ) on the NanoPi M4?

That's on T4. With M4 it comes with a case / addon.

If there is a sdcard the NanoPi R1 boots of sdcard.

I want boot from emmc first.

I want this boot sequence.

1) emmc
2) sdcard

From where do you want to boot from?

Thanks for the replies. @igorp, I was able to install armbian, and although the power LED still blinks as it did, I can now access the device through the network! Using armbian-config, I generated a diag file (http://ix.io/2AVD) to see what is going on. Other than a reference to ledtrig-cpu (the bl...
I've been using a R2S board for a while and after rebooting it to apply a new configuration option (port forwarding), the device's power LED started blinking. 2 blinks per second approx. The unit is no longer responding to pings, etc. I tried flashing a new copy of the FriendlyWrt image and I get t...
Thank you I know about armbian... but the support and compatibility is not the same as with a specific image including all available peripherals. Its not the same true, its probably better. Hardware wise and also on userland level. Legacy kernel is the same: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/ma...

I don't want to rely on distribution support which is not scalable to all hardwares.

If I could spare a million euro per year, I would look into a standard open-source re-useable boot interface that every ARM single board computer can easily reuse.

I think you are biased toward armbian. I want to figure out the exact steps without using third party tools Yes I am biased, but I am showing you the fastest track to build and learn. I have been doing so on x86 computers. I don't want to be reliant on armbian to bootstrap another linux distributio...
To me, https://github.com/friendlyarm/sd-fuse_rk3328 seems more digestible than armbian. Armbian is a huge codebase. Understanding a huge code base is more difficult than reading documents. That code base is preparing things to compile u-boot. With Armbian you run ./compile "u-boot" and i...
I use either gentoo or artix linux. In ARM single board computers you have to forget about the "luxury" of distro hopping. Analyzing armbian is difficult. Analysing RAW material, the source of that, is more complicated. That's what I am trying to tell you. Difference between Gentoo and Ar...

Is NanoPi R2s going to be soon supported by mainline linux and mainline u-boot?

For that you will have to look elsewhere.

Things are far more complex :D Armbian kills great portion of that complexity and I agree it could be done more.

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.

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...
