The effort for keeping devices functional and answering to endless user questions are at the expense of Armbian maintainers. Please take some of our burden away!

Important: To be able to boot clean Armbian mainline based u-boot / kernel experiences, you need to remove incompatible Petitboot loader that is shipped with the board.

Try one of the following methods:

Bootloader Bypass Method

This is now the preferred method.  It is easier, and be performed without a display via SSH

    1. Install an SD Card with a fresh Armbian image
    2. Flip device upside down
    3. With a tool, press and hold down the black button.
    4. Continue holding button and plug in power to device
    5. Login to console or SSH and perform follow normal setup procedures
    6. Verify system can access SPI FLASH device and Erase
    7. Reboot
odroidhc4:~:# ls -ltr /dev/mtd*

odroidhc4:~:# flash_erase /dev/mtd0 0 0

Petitboot Console Method

Attach the device to a display and keyboard.  Power on.  Petitboot will load

From the Petitboot menu, go for “Exit to shell” and these commands to remove the Petitboot:

# flash_eraseall /dev/mtd0
# flash_eraseall /dev/mtd1
# flash_eraseall /dev/mtd2
# flash_eraseall /dev/mtd3

This will make your SPI flash memory empty and would start from SD on next boot.

In case you want to put Petitboot back to the board, user those instructions.

FAN support

Create a file in /etc/fancontrol with the following content:

INTERVAL=10
DEVPATH=hwmon0=devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0 hwmon2=devices/platform/pwm-fan
DEVNAME=hwmon0=cpu_thermal hwmon2=pwmfan
FCTEMPS=hwmon2/pwm1=hwmon0/temp1_input
FCFANS= hwmon2/pwm1=hwmon2/fan1_input
MINTEMP=hwmon2/pwm1=50
MAXTEMP=hwmon2/pwm1=60
MINSTART=hwmon2/pwm1=20
MINSTOP=hwmon2/pwm1=28
MINPWM=hwmon2/pwm1=0
MAXPWM=hwmon2/pwm1=255

followed by:

sudo systemctl restart fancontrol

With kernel 5.15.y -> you need to remove FCFANS=hwmon2/pwm1=hwmon2/fan1_input in /etc/fancontrol

FAQs

Simple

BASH or ZSH shell, standard Debian/Ubuntu utilities. Features can be adjusted with menu-driven utility. Login is possible via serial, HDMI or SSH.

Universal

Minimal, server or Desktop. We work with XFCE, Mate and Cinnamon but more is possible to build: Gnome, KDE, Budgie, Deepin, i3, …

Light

No bloatware or spyware. Special utilities are completely optional. Suitable for newcomers and professionals.

Optimized

Distributed images are optimized for flash media (SD/eMMC/SSD) and compacted to real data size.

Fast

Armbian is optimized on kernel and userspace level. ZRAM & ZSWAP support, browser profile memory caching, garbage commit delay.

Secure

Security level can be adjusted with the armbian-config. OS is reviewed by professionals within the community.

Supported

Maintainers and community have deep understanding how HW work. We are seniors with 30+ years of experience in Linux + embedded Linux.

Open

Armbian provides open source build framework to build a distribution of optimised Linux hardware interface for armhf, aarch64 and x86.

We provide a selection of images that fits hardware best. If you need different image – use build framework and make whatever you need. Build framework relies on Debian and Ubuntu packages – you can build any combination – stable, old stable or rolling release.

Make sure you have a good & reliable SD card and a proper power supply. Archives can be flashed with Etcher (all OS) directly.

Insert the SD card into the slot, connect a cable to your network if possible or a display and power your board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes a bit longer.

SUPPORTED devices are tested and they should work well apart from known issues and missing features. Support is provided as far as possible (in general there is no support for 3rd party hardware like DVB tuners and software like Kodi). Please check the documentation and existing forum posts before posting a question. Questions on private channels are considered as offence.

SUITABLE FOR TESTING (WIP) are devices which we’re currently working on but they might not be fully ready! These images are usually suitable for developers and experienced users. They are not very well tested but they might work without any problems. Your help to improve this situation is greatly appreciated.

NO OFFICIAL SUPPORT (CSC) are devices which are supported by the 3rd party. We usually don’t have hardware samples nor conduct any tests but they might work well. Provided images comes without any warranty and update might worsen usability and stability.

Armbian images and kernels can be made from scratch. Supported environment for build framework is any any X64 based Linux distribution. You can re-make live bootable image or just a kernel+dtb(hardware configuration) package which you transfer to your image and install with: dpkg -i linux-image-[branch]-family.deb linux-dtb-[branch]-family.deb. In that process you can enforce many customisation.
