is there a way to remove the ROCK64 boot logo ?
I could change the android logo with a bootanimation.zip, but it still remain ROCK64 logo.

Any help will be appreciated.

Question No USB Power (ROCK64+ARMBIAN 5.7)
Posted by: takezo - 03-15-2019, 07:02 AM - Forum: Linux - Replies (2)


Hello, can someone help me with my problem.

I have a ROCK64 with 4GB of RAM and an ARMBIAN 5.75 stable Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 4.4.174-rockchip64, installed.
My issue come with usb ports, from the three USB of the this device only works two: one 2.0 and 3.0. And when i have a disk connected towards usb 3.0 i have issues with port usb 2.0, it doesn't work well and I end up disconnecting the USB 3.0 to can work with my device connected towards USB 2.0 so I assume that the current power on the USB port is having issues or it's not working well.

Anybody an idea?

  Clusterboard networking problems
Posted by: BryanS - 03-14-2019, 05:50 PM - Forum: Clusterboard - Replies (18)

I've recently acquired a clusterboard with some compute modules, along with a baseboard. I've verified the modules are operational via the baseboard, and boot via the clusterboard's serial terminal. I'm using the latest stable version of Armbian. The board is being powered via an external supply coming into the connector beside the coaxial power jack, to which I've soldered screw terminals. I've also tried the "official?" brick supplied from Ameridroid.

I'm having trouble getting the modules to talk to the network. I've assigned the modules static IP addresses within Armbian, and it appears to be correct when I check it. The yellow LEDs are blinking as if there is network traffic, and the green are all blinking in unison save the slot(s) where modules are installed. If I tell a particular module to halt, the green LED stops blinking.

Is there something I'm missing? I've read about some changes to network timing in other threads, but I'm not sure where to go with this.

  Slow SMB Transfer speed.Sent multiple email to Pine64 website and No single reply
Posted by: avelec - 03-12-2019, 03:17 PM - Forum: General Discussion on ROCK64 - Replies (3)


I have the problem with file transfer speed with my Rock64 (4Gig ram with Pine 64 power adapter). Rock64 connected to Gigabit router port. 

From Windows Surface Book pro3 PC (connected to AC wifi) to Rock64 external USB 3.0 HDD: Only get: 10- 16 MB/s.

Back from Rock64 to Surface Book pro3 PC ONLY : 12-19 MB/s

Sent multiple email to Pine64 website and No single reply. Such a terrible company, will never buy Pine64 product anymore.

I have tried all version of OMV from ayufan, pine64 website, pre-release or stable version. Check my USB3 to SSD adapter and was confirmed with UAS support.

  Thoughts on Linux OS vs Just Enough Linux Media Boxes
Posted by: buzzmarshall - 03-12-2019, 08:30 AM - Forum: General Discussion on ROCKPRO64 - No Replies

As a long time developer i recently bought a Rockpro64 for a totally unrelated development that i am working on but over the years have developed my own embedded Media OS along the lines of the original OpenELEC and more current LibreELEC or CoreELEC and am interested in moving them off the Amlogic platform over to the Rk3399 SoC and am curious as to what the general consensus with regards to the emerging SBC scene is when it comes to a fuller embedded linux system as compared to something like LibreELEC thats really more of a Kodi driven development.

Over the years i have become well aware of the issues with the newer Mali based GPU's and the lack of a real working graphics stack that actually makes use of the advantages of the Mali's being used and a few years ago a couple of us RE'd our own solution and created blobs to use with newer kernels then typically supported by the Manufactures BSP's being provided, so i understand most of the issues currently trying to be solved both privately and publicly.

Currently i am working on a Debian version with kernel 5 support as it need it for my other project but am just curious as to what peoples thoughts are as to just fixing the graphics issues in Debian and then running Kodi properly built for that as compared to splitting my time and trying to support the Media box scene. I realize that people working on Android boxes would naturally prefer something like LibreELEC but i am more interested in what people moving into the SBC scene would think is better. 

sorry if i step on someones toes but i am not in any way interested in anything to do with Anroid tho.

thanx and i look forward to seeing what peoples thoughts are.

also as a hardware guy i must say i am extremely impressed with the rockpro64 and its capabilities as compared to a few of the other boards i have looked at.
