Rock Pi S Armbian Buster

Features:

  • latest Rockchip develop-4.4 branch (as of 20191030)
  • patched to 4.4.198
  • Radxa’s Rock Pi S patches
  • Rockchip u-boot with Radxa’s patches
  • u-boot patched to make LAN MAC address stable based on CPUID
  • almost all USB_SERIAL modules compiled
  • overclocked to 1.3 GHz
  • increased available memory from 424MiB to 486MiB
    • I don’t have 256MiB version but it should increase from ~168MiB to ~230MiB
    • configurable via /boot/armbianEnv.txt
      extraargs=swiotlb=1024 means 2MiB reserved - single unit equals 2KiB.
      I would stick with “round” numbers (in binary system) when configuring it, eg. 2048, 4096…

Caveats:

  • no Bluetooth or WiFi for now
