  • H96max running OrangePI Ubuntu.

    The topic.
    Very simple. Take the distro from Opi site, dd it on the SD-card. insert and turn on power. It is running.
    Later, the kernel changed to
    root@localhost:~# uname -a
    Linux localhost 4.4.114 #11 SMP Mon Mar 12 08:46:26 UTC 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

    The problem is with dtb file: partially it works.
    USB2 is ok, HDMI is ok, Ethernet is ok.
    But:
    [ 0.809301] cdn-dp fec00000.dp: Direct firmware load for rockchip/dptx.bin failed with error -2
    (file dptx.bin present)

    So, USB3 is off (both type-C and normal USB3 blue socket; it works in Android).
    Also, I cannot check AV output and ALSA shows only SPDIF, that has no controls.
    I think the only need is any correct dtb file to work with the board.

    Solution should be taking Orginal Device Firmware unpack it and exchange the dtb.
    Then it should work.

      Very interesting for people who want to use the box for emulation.

      Like me.

        mmmm.....there was a problem with android's image unpacking for that device with the help of RK tools and android SDK native tools. I do not know why, and have no time to learn and investigate all tools and formats.
        but I've got the string from the image (comments line in source dtb file), compile the same dtb, but with no effect.
        so, waiting for some help....
