After receiving one sample of RockPi X I started to do preliminary testing before moving to Volumio.
For powering the board I’m using a Qualcomm QuickCharge 4+ power adaptor from NXP…
The board I received was pre-flashed with Windows10. I spent little time testing it, just t verify WiFi and Audio was working fine and for updating the BIOS to the latest version released in August.
On first boot with Lubuntu live from USB stick I could not have internal WiFi recognized, I decided to fix it later and I moved forward with a USB WiFi dongle.
Installation process went smoothly, I manually created a new partition table on the EMMC to store the operating system.
On first boot audio was already working fine, both from HDMI ad from headphone jack. To fix WiFi issue I had to download this file and copy it into /lib/firmware/brcm/
I’m playing a youtube video on my living room TV right now, it goes smooth at 1080P
During the coming days I will try some more additional items, including bluetooth, I2C, SPI and I2S.
So far so good, well done!
