The problem with both the Armbian and DietPi is they don't have support for the 5102A Audio Hat. but YOU can enable armbian to support the 5102A Audio-Hat :) with my instructions :) My Neo can use it! https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9009-info-friendlyarm-pcm5102a-hat-with-nanopi-neo-under-mainline-...
Neo4 Wiki page does say there IS a combi-module:

Why stop at 128GB?

maybe because they only tested the Duo2 "only" with up to 128GB:

thanks for the reply. as I can see it the max frequency is capped to 816MHz on this NanoPi Neo2 v1.0 running the latest armbian stretch. can this be changed? the 1.01.Ghz (or 1.08) are from my Neo2 LTS v1.1 (1GB Ram) as I did see now.

when you use cpufreq-info (without a -p) then you could should read: hardware limits: 120 MHz - 1.01 GHz available frequency steps: 120 MHz, 240 MHz, 480 MHz, 648 MHz, 816 MHz, 960 MHz, 1.01 GHz available cpufreq governors: conservative, userspace, powersave, ondemand, performance, schedutil current...

they named the standard 40 pin Connector GPIO1 because of the additinal ports on the 24 pin row GPIO2 :(
maybe they want to sell the new Duo2 with 512MB?

maybe the Duo2 is useable with an apdapter in your pcb?

You could try to expand eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces:

how about:
dmesg|grep -i eth0

or if the ethernet-module/driver has been loaded:

I get the same issue on mine as well. Wish they would fix it already as I have told them about this months ago. As I remember FriendlyARM wrote in some forum-thread that the eMMC on the "breakout" board of the NanoPi Duo was never supposed to be a bootable device.... They wrote is should ...

Almost everything works out of the box. In the meantime I did this experiment and edited the pin64-boardconfig inside the armbian-build-system for the NanoPi A64, because the complete build-system did have a .dtb and defconfig-file for the NanoPi A64: ./build/cache/sources/u-boot/v2018.11/configs/n...

Actually, more than that, but including google searching, it takes me about 2-3 hours to complete all. Most of the problem is related to the python script, just settle the errors one-by-one.

If your 2-3 hours are the same work as 2-3 hours for me than it seems much work for this little display :(
Hi guidol, Mine is Neo2 with OLED, armbian is working fine with my neo2. However, it takes many steps for the python script to work.

there you can power the NanoPi Air via the pins :)

Cool would be a server-image (without desktop) and a desktop-image

Pin 2 or 4 (5V) and 6 (GND) should be OK
Do only use one for +5V

The normal boot should work with 1A

I also see the Neo2 boot with the 5V of a USB serial adapter connected to a normal USB port on a PC.

So doublecheck your cables (are they to thin?)
