  • The only led on the board is a power LED, it starts to light as soon as power is available and does not indicate anything else.
  • DC-IN via Micro USB, keep in mind that most USB cables have a resistance way too high which leads to undervoltage situations. It is recommended to power your Pine64(+) through the Euler pins (see linux-sunxi wiki for details).
  • If you clone one Armbian installation for more than one Pine64 please keep in mind that the Ethernet MAC address will be chosen randomly on first boot and then saved in /boot/uEnv.txt. To avoid MAC address collisions you must adjust the address there or delete the whole ethaddr line.
  • If you use a DVI display don’t forget to define disp_dvi_compat=1 in /boot/armbianEnv.txt
  • Pine64’s own LCD with touchscreen support can simply be activated in /boot/armbianEnv.txt by setting pine64_lcd=on and adding gt9xxf_ts to /etc/modules followed by a reboot.

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.

Minimal images comes without armbian-config, armbian-zsh, build-essentials, Python, DKMS, … If you are interested in detailed comparison, CLI images also have those packages:

Make sure you have a good & reliable boot media (SD card / USB key) 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.

Support is provided in one of two ways:
