Rock Pi S OTG in Host Mode

Hello friends,

I want to connect a USB flash drive via OTG port on Rock Pi S. I have used a type C OTG connector as shown in picture

But after connecing it and using “lsusb” command it does not show any device connected.

Any idea what I’m doing wrong??

Hi, to configure ROCK Pi S Type-C port to work in host mode, you can check these two guides.

https://wiki.radxa.com/RockpiS/Ubuntu#USB or https://wiki.radxa.com/RockpiS/Debian#USB.

Hi Stephen,

That solution did not worked.

First of all, there is no overlay file named “rk3308-usb20-host” in my /boot/dtbs/4.4.143-48-rockchip-geacd15ae244f/rockchip/overlay folder

This I can understand because my Kernel version is 4.4.143-48 but the guide you mentioned recommends version >=4.4.143-51.

So I followed the commands mentioned at https://wiki.radxa.com/RockpiS/Debian#Update_necessary_packages
but again it failed the kernel update command “sudo apt-get install -y linux-4.4-rockpis-latest” mid-process with the error that the required file was not found in the repository (shown in below image)

not to mention that even the above command was trying to install kernel version 4.4.143-49 and not the recommended 4.4.143-51.

I am using the latest Debian Buster image from Radxa (image dated: 28/05/2020)

Try

sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get install linux-4.4-rockpis-latest

And the following information should be shown.

root@rockpis:/home/rock# apt-get install linux-4.4-rockpis-latest
