this is a well known board, shishion or andowl brand !
it is a REAL 3229 but with ddr2 and emmc storage
so ANY of images on the first post with this characteristic will surely boot !
here it goes the dtb extracted from the image provided
hope can be usefull
beg pardon , but from reading your link , it is speaking of
This tool is written by Team CoreELEC and exclusive for Amlogic devices running CoreELEC
Currently supported Amlogic SoC’s: etc etct etc
In this 3ad we are on Rockchip devices.
Is this bl 301 applicable even to rockchip ?
You are able to use Linux this is great because you can try armbian starting from SD!
Take your libreelec SD and substitute all the content of fat part and rootfs ext4 part with content from armbian.
In other words, don't touch miniloader-trustos-boot of libreelec mars II and use kernel init and rootfs from Jock compilation
Give it a try
regarding remotes I found two great categories :
I call them the black one and the white/green one
If you look at upper right button , the one that in " black" ( like on the photos you posted) should mute the volume , well some boards have the same button green or white
of course they are different
well you right , in small window the video are playing with mpv smoothly but even in small window you can't even touch the cpu heatsink and htop show cores very busy and the rest of functionality of the board very slowed
at the actual state I think is a little bit such as compare pears and apples because here on LE we have a finished work focused on media , on armbian media related stuff is work in process (still hacking all the video part) but indeed you can use armbian with great satisfaction as media server , voip server ( asterisk) samba shares, print server, mail and others and having a well reacting X11 environment too!
But even the thing could be in some way related to libreelec I still think this isn't the appropriate place and time to discuss of this, since the work on armbian is unfinished and not yet the right moment to have comparisons.
btw if you want have a try, thanks to great job made by jock2 here it goes some interesting links
but be ready with ,e.g, not even boot caused by incorrect/unadapted ram speed , wrong loader blob etc etc etc:
I am sure you have your uart always connected to easily debug problems.
For me, I will not answer more on armbian related stuff on this libreelec forum at the moment, thank you
yes i read your post and decided to join this conversation to sum the knowledge on rk3229
maybe better we go discuss on armbian forum about armbian so we don't go off topic here, may be one day the discussion will be merged too
good afternoon all
after long journey it seems many efforts are done in merging different studies into one common road of a better usable box
I wrote this ( pardon for cross posting other forum but i see also @knaerzche is trying to do some studies on armbian)
long story LINUX on rk3229 rockchip - TV boxes - Armbian forum
and also tried librelec that is running smoothly even on old devices
hope all of us will produce a good result
