Linux on this board


#21

The forum is in Chinese…
reply button on that forum apparently gives some error.


#22

I’ve repacked it with my own ptable.img (expand to 59G, instead of 4G system)
and upload it to Google driver.

is not updated anymore. maybe hoperun or smartfire can post a pull request?


#24

Install firmware-ti-connectivity can make the wifi working.
sudo apt-get install firmware-ti-connectivity


#25

I tried flashing this. It fails while flashing the system partition.


#26

Can you show me some log?
It takes about 1500 seconds to complete the flash of system.img on my board.
And I found it sometimes failed while without fan cooling.


#27

It fails immediately after the fastboot flash system rootfs.sparse.img. I don’t have access to the board till Monday. I’ll send the log after I flash it again on Monday.


#28

Here are the logs for it.
