Does it boot from nvme? If so, how to flash it.

wow, this is huge. good work on this.

though, i cant get this to boot with sd card, every android image didnt work for me :frowning:

i guess i need to get myself those emmc module then.

edited: just tried with my old class 4 sd card and its showing “androidtv” boot logo now

I have shared it to Radxa Discord Rock 5 Images Channel.

Does it have the app for the HDMI input?

Your awesome!
Considering my main goal is to turn the Rock5B into a media center this goes a long way for me.

i see. i guess the realtek ethernet driver were not included then.

also i noticed there is no blue/activity led, i guess you did this on purpose then? :slightly_smiling_face:

no nothing on purpose but there are a lot of files in android source :wink:

on my rk3566 Quartz64-a it runs nice 4k could be better

on a H96 max v58 it also runs only have to proper make a dts for it no wifi or bluetooth but with ethernet

and since i got the source from raxda i made a rock 5b and a 3a image and i just today grabbed the raxda sdk to built a little more proper one for rock board

Great Build. Thank you for your hard work! Cant wait for the updated build! i managed to get it to work on the emmc. Boots super fast!

how, please share the steps

I was using balenaEtcher to write image. I switched to rufus-3.21 and it worked. dont know why it wasnt working with balenaEtcher.

did it failed on validation end on balenaEtcher?
i dont see any different between this two method, partition table looks the same, protective MBR with GPT and i cant still boot one of my SD card.

do a full sd format

uboot does like that sometimes if you used the sd before

yup, i did those disk wipe (fill with zeroes) with one of the windows tool (aomei partition assistance), didnt help.
anyway, radxa already acknowledge (https://github.com/radxa/manifests/releases) on the issue of some sd card cant be booted, perhaps it is something that rockchip need to address.
