Update > Finally Sort out this ISSUE! FINALLY!!
Auff what a relief!
RKDEVTOOLS you guys really need to make it more clearer on how to flash this.
My issue was that, because on my first attempt it failed to do the Download Image (tab) I was just doing Upgrade Firmware (Tab) and for some reason it never worked decent.
So here it goes and I hope this help the community because I love this!
At least for some clarity on Windows:
RK Dev Tools: https://wiki.radxa.com/Rock5/install/rockchip-flash-tools
The files for RK Dev Tools are here: https://wiki.radxa.com/Rock5/install/spi
(You need the loader.bin and the Release.img)
I suggest everyone to do an SPI update with those files up aiming for the release.img
Theres a SPI config file in RKDevTools paste to Swap between EMMC and SPI.
SPI requires a SPI BIN file and the IMG file. (both on the links above each for what type of usage you desire in my case EMMC). Release is for a default standard (Do Flash your SPI for a boot in EMMC then Micro SD if nothing then NVME).
Before yous say (this has nothing to do with flashing openfyde) well yes but for someone who does a lot of image swapping and to give a fresh install you better reset the boot spi flashing it via emmc right on RKDEVTOOLS or skip this part where the next one was the deal breaker for me.
RkDevTools has first a Download Image tab (because for me the first time I have used it / it failed to enter the maskmode I thought the mask mode button on Rock5B was the second button… it detects something but its not the maskmode.
The maskmode button is beside the CPU on a top left corner in line with the type C connector.
Meaning that everytime RkDevTools fails u better close it and open (again the windows app) and enter into mask mode again by unplugging and plugging the typeC cable.
Here we go:
Download Image you will need RK Dev Tool.BIN file (found here https://wiki.radxa.com/Rock5/install/spi)
Second file to add is the image.IMG file which will be the OpenFyde OS image from github (Tutorial how to do RkDevTool also here https://wiki.radxa.com/Rock5/install/usb-install-emmc)
Check option Write by address then Press run. After done unplug type C.
We are not done yet.
Next - Second tab the Upgrade Firmware.
Get into maskmode - Load firmware.img from openfyde github wait - Then Flash.
After its done unplug type C et voilá!! OpenFyde works nay!
For the fan to work ctrl alt T type Shell then sudo su -u
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/fd8b0010.pwm/pwm/pwmchip*/export
echo 10000 > /sys/devices/platform/fd8b0010.pwm/pwm/pwmchip*/pwm0/period
echo 5000 > /sys/devices/platform/fd8b0010.pwm/pwm/pwmchip*/pwm0/duty_cycle
echo normal > /sys/devices/platform/fd8b0010.pwm/pwm/pwmchip*/pwm0/polarity
echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/fd8b0010.pwm/pwm/pwmchip*/pwm0/enable
#echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/fd8b0010.pwm/pwm/pwmchip*/pwm0/enable
Runs really slow… it should run a bit stronger for heavier duty to cooldown.
Now known Issues:
Bluetooth support is coming on the next patch.
-No google apps support yet.
