Rock 3 A rmbian bullseye unofficial

Hello
To my surprise I found out today that armbian build repo has rock3a configs as well as debian bullseye, so instead of rockpro64 I decided to give that a try and build such image. Moment later I had working minimal cli image and desktop version ready to burn into sd.

I launched them and they take some time to first boot, then run well. I tested ethernet, hdmi and hid devices via one of USB, all worked. Few errors in dmesg to resolve but other tests are promising. With additional kernel config this may be better for my needs than the one from wiki. Of course it still uses legacy kernel and it may be even the same - on build some radxa repos are cloned, and some patches applied, I did not yet checked all that in detail yet. I booted with 5.x kernel too, but that requires more work for sure.

While I encourage everyone to build that on your own I also uploaded those to gdrive here:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1AhhObP1qlz4NkgGj_ctr9gZkOrZU8GOg?usp=sharing

Use at Your own risk.
Please note that it’s UNOFFICIAL build and board is UNSUPPORTED by armbian devs and maintainers. Don’t go to armbian forum or their github and don’t ask for features or help with bugs. This is not welcomed, please respect their rules and consider supporting them on their hard work.

I am unable to get this image to boot.
Are you using this with eMMC or micro SD?
How long does it take for first boot? Are we saying 5 minutes or 30 minutes?
How did you flash the image to your boot device? Did you use Etcher or something else?

Thanks,
Nexus

I tried with SD card, some 64GB and created image with balena.
First boot is about 3-4 mins, I guess it finishing few things like resizing FS or maybe doing fs check. As far as I know its quite easy to move it then from SD to eMMC, but haven’t tried that yet. I’ll have eMMC by the end of year and then will be able to test that.

I mentioned about first long boot because when i first tried to boot I was sure it’s not working at all. On console last message is “starting kernel”, then after some time it asks about new root password. I’m watching that on uart console (see other thread here for the one that works and I’m using it).
Have You tested cli or desktop?

Following the exact configuration you’re describing, I’m still unable to get any sort of sign of life out of my Rock 3A.
Instead of using a UART adapter, my attempted method of access is via SSH (which I have done before)
Using the UART adapter that I have on hand, the console boots as normal until it kernel panics just after it loads the kernel.
This behavior seems to just be due to serial adapter incompatibilities as described in this thread.

I’m certain that I’ve accessed Armbian on first-boot over SSH in the past, so my guess is that it’s not getting that far at all. Serial logs do show that it’s successfully getting into U-Boot, though.
I have tried both the minimal and desktop images, as well as many of my own self-compiled images.

Thanks for your help.

It may hang on boot when there is not enough power. Also I found out earlier that active hubs sometimes don’t work correctly and also You can’t simply connect board to usb-c port on your laptop (even the one with lightning icon). It may just need more power with kernel and that can cause such issues. Not every charger that is described as 3A is working.

On thread about uarts it stopped only with incompatible/not supported adapter, You could boot without it with no problems. Also You can connect it after kernel was loaded.

For ssh I can try that too, on screen it was not connected to eth, but I tested that too. Before kernel u-boot reports that no eth found but it gets ip on system without any problem.
How much RAM does your Rock3A has?

I’m using a 4GB model.
Regarding power, I have tried this with many different cables and adapters, including a known-good laptop charger capable of QC3.0, which should be plenty for the Rock 3A.

I’m able to boot just fine into the Radxa-provided Debian image, just not Armbian. I’ve tried many different images, too.
I have a compatible UART adapter on the way to hopefully provide me with more detailed and useful boot logs.

Mine is 8GB model, but this should not be the case. Have you plugged anything to E-slot or nvme?

For power issues - try some cpu burn tests, I’m doing them for each device on new/different power units and cables to be sure that everything works correctly. It happened few times that system booted and was fine until some heavy tasks was done. Armbian can just do more on startup than plain debian. Also try non-qc adapter if You can.

Later today I’ll prepare new image and measure how long it takes to first boot.
UART adapter always helps, I’ll try to first boot without it and try ssh via network.

I think I found Your issue, it’s this QC3 adapter,
I usually connect board with simple charger and long charge only cable, now I tried again usb-c and pd charger, It cause instability and eventually hangs on kernel load. I saw that it restarts several times and then died on “starting kernel”.
Charger on test was baseus GaN 120W charger and usb-c on first port:

I was sure that I used it before so I found usb-A cable and connected it to bigger port and then it boot up with no problems.
Yet again try different power units and maybe cables, something is wrong with this.

Both M.2 slots are empty.

These boot errors are identical when using:

  • Normal “dumb” 5V 3A power cables
  • 9V, 12V, and 20V USB-PD cables
  • QC 2.0/3.0 cables

This behavior also persists with known-good UART adapters. I am able to boot just fine into the OEM Debian images, but all Armbian builds fail to boot in different ways.

Minimal image, micro SD, flashed with BalenaEtcher (U-Boot was not accessible after kernel panic):

### ERROR ### Please RESET the board ###

These two logs both indicate that something is wrong with the boot partitions. One is unable to find a needed file, “/boot/dtb/rockchip/overlay/rk35xx-fixup.scr” and the other is missing “bootfile.”

If possible, can you post your bootup logs when using a micro SD card? Differences between yours and mine pre-kernel panic may be useful.

Thanks again for your help,
Nexus

I just reproduced this kernel panic (first log) with same card, board, uart and image that worked earlier. Tomorrow I’ll try to find any difference with them and let You know.
On working system I have same errors, no ethernet (cable is connected), no scr file, indeed on boot overlay folder there is rather rockchip-fixup.scr and when you copy that to right name it will react for change. It takes about 25s to boot kernel and it works with nvme 2x at full speed.

Just to confirm, you were able to successfully boot by copying rockchip-fixup.scrfromboot/dtb-4.19.193/rockchip/overlay/tork35xx-fixup.scr`?

For me, copying this file removes the mention of it in the bootup logs but doesn’t fix the kernel panic issue.

No - this not makes it to boot and yet I don’t know if this has any good or bad effect at all other than no warning. This have to be something else. I’m quite sure that I tested those two images and they worked perfectly and now I cant recreate them on second card, give me some time and hopefully I’ll find issue. Still it’s much easier if I see same problem.

BTW: here is Your requested log

Armbian 21.11.0-trunk Bullseye ttyFIQ0

rock-3a login:

This one is from system moved to nvme, but this makes difference after kernel load.

I reuploaded images with more verbose output and modified kernel, can You please recheck?

I don’t know what you did or how you did it, but the board boots now.
I tried the type 83 sector move thing you suggested yesterday to no success, but this works now.
During setup, after selecting locales to generate, the board spits out:

[ 249.930345] proc: unrecognized mount option "hidepid=invisible" or missing value

However, it keeps setting up like nothing happened and seems to run just fine.
Pasting in the full boot logs made my browser unstable so they’re attached to this post in bootlogs.txt
If the uploaded file isn’t accessible, they’re also available at: https://pastebin.com/ZwiFNLrE

The board seems to be fully controllable after boot.
Once again, thank you very much with your help on this.

I deleted that comment because it was not that. I still don’t know why it’s bit different on that card and later could not get such again. I was sure that balena should recreate everything in same way on same cards.

The problem was in kernel itself, I needed to revert few changes from build and it’s back to live again. It seems that I was lucky to hit right version when I first cloned project. I made last rebuild right before upload to remove verbose messages and get new checksums and that caused problem. I was sure that nothing important has been changed.
This image is beta quality, as You can see there are some errors and few things don’t work. It’s good point to start :slight_smile: I’ve learned few things about it, maybe will be able to correct some bugs. I saw that there is someone new to maintain that board on armbian (You can see his fork on repo). Also changes from station P2 (same RK soc) are comming to master, even @igorp build first images for this board for tests. With few efforts this may result in better builds, I hope I can help with that, but still need to spend more time to see how it work and how to help :slight_smile:
Good luck :slight_smile:
