    The new version Armbian 20200117 19.11.5 and Libreelec 20200116

    Please note that the DTB configuration order has changed.

    Now a single configuration method is used for all Rockchip Allwinner Amlogic platforms. The file (uEnv.txt) is used for configuration DTB all platforms. The system installation scripts in eMMC have changed accordingly. If you have a system with eMMC core 5 installed on RK33xx, it is advisable to perform a clean installation in eMMC to upgrade to the new version.

    For anyone who uses an eMMC installation , it is mandatory to perform a full eMMC backup before installation.

      Update to version 19.11.5 (20200120) kernel 5.5.0-rc6.
      Important change. the way DTB is configured has changed. Now a single configuration method is used for all platforms, using the file (uEnv.txt). You need to edit this file to configure it. You need to uncomment the two lines that are responsible for your platform and specify the correct DTB for your model. If you use this image to run on the one platform, you can delete it from the settings file (uEnv.txt) strings from other platforms.
      Pay attention. The installation algorithm in eMMC has changed. My recommend that you perform a clean installation in eMMC. Be sure to make a full backup of eMMC before installing it in eMMC. Important.

          Important information for Rockchip RK3328\RK3399 and Allwinner H6. If you have written to the SD card any version of the system that uses a GPT table or a non-standard u-boot (for example, an Android image or an Ubuntu image built by the device manufacturer, etc.). Before writing an Armbian or Libreelec image, be sure to zero the entire SD card with the

          dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<sd_card> bs=64M

          command. Only then can you write the image to the SD card and it will work correctly. If you do not zero the SD card, there will be problems with u-boot from Armbian and Libreelec (u-boot does not start and stops with a partition table error message). For those who use the new version of u-boot, which supports direct launch from USB media, I recommend using USB media to launch, this guarantees that the system will start, regardless of what was previously on the USB media.

              **************************** Libreelec *******************

              Important. Changed the directory location of the images. Now all images (for all supported platforms) are in one place. LIBREELEC — Yandex.Disk



              ***************************** Armbian *******************


              New versions of images 20200218.


              Important change. With this version, you can easily add the desired u-boot on any PC (including Windows) .


              To do this, new versions of u-boot are downloaded on the site.


              https://yadi.sk/d/lTbXkrmZN5Hf6g


              Rules for using the new u-boot option. Download, Armbian image, unpack. Write image Armbian to the SD card. Download and write the desired version of the u-boot file to SD card. Configure the DTB and the launch string (APPEND) in (uEnv.txt) for the desired model\platform.


              Pay attention. Now you don't need to write u-boot with complex commands, you write the u-boot image with the same program as you usually write an Armbian image. This allows you to configure the system to run (including writing a u-boot image) on any PC (including Windows).


              Pay attention. The new version changed the size of the partitions that are obtained when writing an image (all images have a fixed size of 5GB). This u-boot entry option only applies to the new version 20200218 and subsequent versions. Don't try this for old images. This will not work on older images.

                    Can you check if these VP9 codec changes for RK mainline is compatible to include in your LE images?
                    https://patchwork.kernel.org/project...?series=269213.

                    Would be interesting to check if VP9 hardware acceleration can work now.
                    Mpeg2, H264, VP8 s already hardware decoded.
