Power & Source of Big Ideas

Hi that is really a hot and new OS however we haven't had a chance to test it.
Hi Brian,

Sorry I cannot open your blog. Would you please give us more details about the issues you still have with the M1 now?
Looks like i'm having a different booting problem Random boot - never a dull moment - never twice the same.. but some patterns Most of the time as read-only Always the 1st time after i created the sd image - Xorg cannot start Some other times i get the desktop but nothing on it - just black However...
You need to do it on a host PC
Really sorry for this. We are really behind. We will update our wiki for M1 soon. The M1's Debian image defaults to 1080P60. The boot section's script directory has multiple script.bin files for various resolutions. For example if you need 720P60 please do it this way: # in TF card boot partition cp...
Try these steps on the M1, actually it is the same as M2. You need to do it on a host PC:

sudo umount /dev/sdx?
sudo parted /dev/sdx unit % resizepart 2 100 unit MB print
sudo resize2fs -f /dev/sdx2

you need to replace "/dev/sdx" with the device name in your system
For M1's Debian image files check this:
Hi , if you used an X710 you can press either the menu button or the home button to activate the LCD again. If you use another 7"LCD you can modify Android's code to make it always on however we haven't studied this topic.
Hi Dave I corrected the link and it works now.
The 1G RAM model will come soon. We are working on it.

Now the M1 can work with CAM500A only under Debian
Sorry everything I made a mistake here: M1 doesn't work with CAM500A. I wanted to write M1 can work with CAM202 only under Debian.

Sorry for this misleading information
Yes Dave that is the correct place
Hi Dave, we tried your way and failed too. We did "sudo arm-linux-gcc -v" and got "sudo: arm-linux-gcc: command not found" We haven't found out the root cause. What we usually do is to login the system and open a gnome-termnial and swtich to root and then begin to do all the stuf...

Hi Dave, please get the latest Debian image files. In our latest image we added "rootwait" and fixed this issue.
Hi Dave could you check whether or not your PC host's OS is ubuntu 14.04 64 bit? Our toolchain only works under a 64bit OS
Hi Dave,

No we haven't made any subsequent changes. Could you please post your complete system log starting from system boot?
We released a new NanoPi 2 family member: NanoPi M2. Here is its product page: http://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=107 Here is CNX's report: http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/03/03/30-nanopi-m2-board-packs-raspberry-pi-2-hardware-features-in-a-smaller...
The Android kernel(nexell) is open source and can be downloaded from our wiki.
Hi we have Kali and Ubuntu-mate images ready for international customers:

We are still working on Deepin15. It should be ready very soon

ubuntu-mate's image:https://www.mediafire.com/folder/28mhgfosn62d5/Ubuntu-Mata
We have our download links ready for international customers

Hi did you try mounting in ADB shell?
Or you can try installing a resource manager and operate your SD card with the manager
I don't think you can directly connect a 23PIn LCD to it. You have to study your LCD's datasheet and match its pins to our LCD interface
I would like to know if NanoPi2 Fire has MFC available as in Exynos family. --- This is supported in Android. The VPU source code is available however we didn't integrate it into Debian system Another question is about Mali GPU, which Mali GPU is on NanoPi2 Fire? T6xx or 400/450? (i could not find a...
Hi it is probably because you didn't install the cross compiler correctly :
Please check this link:

Hi Did you do it under Android or Linux?
Sorry for this issue.
We have been trying to upload these OS images to a stable web space for international users however we didn't succeed.
We are still working on it.
Hi I am sorry I didn't get you very clearly. Did you mean how to trouble shoot the cable or the board?
Hi We don't have much experience in it with Debian. Samsung has some OpenGL libraries however it doesn't have much support for this nor does it have detailed steps or instructions on how to use the libraries. We haven't studied this topic very much.
Hi thank you very much for raising this issue. We are working on it
No only the first TF card slot can boot the board.
Kali's image files can be obtained on our wiki site:
Please search for "Kali"

Here is the video on how it looks when NanoPi 2 runs Kali

Hi Sorry this function might not be supported in NanoPi. In order for this function to be supported uboot, kernel and hardware all need to be configured and setup. The hardware doesn't support this function and we didn't specifically test the uboot and kernel for this function either.
Hi currently the HD700 by default is in portrait mode and other 7" and 10.1"LCDs are in landscape mode. However we didn't study this very much. There might be some environmental variables that specify its display mode.
Users can access the LED on the NanoPi 2 by accessing "/sys/class/leds/led1" Here are the commands to turn on/off the LED echo none > /sys/class/leds/led1/trigger echo 255 > /sys/class/leds/led1/brightness # On echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/led1/brightness # Off Here are the commands to set the...
Hi our engineers encountered this issue too however in our test it happened twice or three times at most in every 100 seconds. Each time when it happened it recovered promptly.
It didn't happen so often.
Could you give us more details about the changes you made?
Hi we have a code sample here:
http://wiki.friendlyarm.com/wiki/index. ... ompact_Kit

You can search for "python".
Sorry this is a bug. We will fix it in our future versions.

You may try editing this file "/etc/rc.local"
Here is a good commentary on the NanoPi 2 Fire from UK.

Yes you can do it that way. However since the Pi 2 doesn't have a power management unit even after you configure it as a power button it cannot really shut down the power. Pressing it can shut down the system but the power is still on.
Hi Serge, thank you very much for your comments. We will keep releasing new products.
CNX just reported our latest product : NanoPC-T2. Here is the link to the message: http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/02/04/friendlyarm-nanopc-t2-board-gets-more-storage-wifi-bluetooth-stays-cool-and-costs-less/ Here is the product page: http://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&p...
Hi we don't have a CE image ready for the NanoPi. However since the NanoPi and our 2451 boards use the same SoC you may try our 2451's CE6 image on the NanoPi. We have 2451 CE6's BSP too. You may try making a CE6 image from our BSP.
Sorry we don't have a 3.5"LCD with cap touch. The NanoPi and all ARM9 board only work with our LCDs with resistive touch.
Some users asked us about steps to setup a Qt development for the NanoPi 2. We found a very good post from a Chinese forum http://bbs.ickey.cn/group-topic-id-63399.html Here is our translation for that post. All the following pictures and steps are quoted from that post. Please try the following com...
Unbuntu-mate runs on the NanoPi 2 now.

Hi we tested this function in both Android and Debian and it worked.
I would suggest you try it this way: start Debian and login as root and try the commands again. If it still doesn't work you may post all the messages here and we will check for you.
