maybe worth a try:

I downloaded both Armbian-images en tried them. Unfortunately only one usb-port was working and there was never any audio-codec detected.

you can check that if you only install usbip - if you could fine then the complied modules on your system.

It look like this package does have the modules compiled from the source-package.
I think the next should be the H6 because of the QuadCore A53 (like the H5).

The H5 isnt displayed anymore at the Allwinner H-Series page:

The blue connector isnt VGA. Its a DB9 serial-RS232 connector.
The NanoPi Neo2 hasnt Video-Out - so you cant connect VGA or HDMI.

The NanoPi Neo2 is build to use it headless (without a monitor) and only remote or via the serial Debug-Port.
Hello, I was wondering if this single-board computer can read/write onto 1TB USB Flash drive? I know it has max size limit of 64GB on microsd slot. The 64GB limit should only we a "probem" of the card reader slot (or at the time of when the limit was written there was no bigger card). As ...

i've almost given up troubleshooting this. i'm wasting too much time on this. i guess i shall use it as a paperweight if i can't get it to work :D How about booting armbian for the R1 from sdcard and installing armbian via armbian-config to emmc?

I used the debian buster version of armbian for that ;)

there you could see on the upper left 2 Pins for +5V IN/OUT (5V VDD) and then after the 3.3V (OUT-Pin - do connect nothing to this) is GND = Minus/earth

I have either a USB monitor, or a monitor with HDMI or VGA connection.

because there is no VGA/HDMI you could only use USB or a remote-desktop session (RDP/VNC/SSH)
