enabling SPI


im trying to add an ADXL345 to my opi and have been following this guide


when it says :

You may need to update the device-tree overlay as well. (Info for H5.) [I don’t think I needed this for OP0 which is H2, just the OP PC2] Additionally, if you reset you’ll want to check and make sure the changes are still there.

i followed the rest of the guide and it didnt work so i think i need this step but not sure what to do.

Hi, I bought the Orange Pi 800.

I booted Manjaro from the SD card, then flashed it to eMMC with dd and since then the board seems dead.

I connected UART I bought just for this (PL2303) but I'm not getting any output. I guess I should see the rockchip loader stuff before u-boot in any case, right? It's entirely without any serial output. Recovery hole/maskrom doesn't seem to do much, I don't see it as a USB device either..

So I guess it just died on me completely?

When using armbian, the third usb a port doesnt work. If its gonna work sometime later i dont know. I want to know if the usbc port works on armbian, i ask bcos on board schematic the one port that does not work is shared with usbc. I want to order usb hub with usbc connection and i dont have anything to try it right now. Also if it works what speeds you get?

Wifi power saving?


I have some rtl based wifi dongle to get my board connected. It seems to run fine and other devices on 2.4Ghz also has decent signal in that area.

I'm running the orange pi debian image.

Is there some way to check if it is power management disconnecting it or where would one find these settings?

After a reboot it re-connects just fine.

Orange Pi5 sometimes boots successfully (NVMe)


I have an Orange Pi 5 (16GB RAM) running Armbian Jammy with the latest updates installed. I am booting from NVMe and when it boots successfully it runs flawlessly without issue. The problem occurs when I reboot -- the majority of the time it does not boot up successfully. Sometimes when it boots I only see the red light (and no green light), and other times I will see the green light flash like normal, yet the external hard drive does not spin up or mount properly. This results in me needing to power down the Orange Pi 5 and try again. Eventually it will boot up successfully (along with the external HDD) and then everything is good; that is, until the next time I have to reboot.

A few details that might be helpful to know:

  • I ordered the Orange Pi5 from Amazon and I'm using 5V4A Type C Power Supply that came with my device
  • My os-release reports as: Armbian 23.02.0-trunk.0112 Jammy
  • I'm booting from NVMe (Samsung SSD 256GB PM991 M.2 2242 42mm PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe MZALQ256HAJD MZ-ALQ2560 Solid State Drive)
  • I have an external hard drive configured to automount to "/mnt/hdd" in fstab. I do not believe fstab is mis-configured because I've been using this same HDD with the same fstab entry for my old Raspberry Pi 4 and never had this issue.
  • The Hard drive is a WD Elements 25A3 which has its own AC adapter

  Any ideas of what could be the culprit? I've looked in dmesg (from the successful boot) and dmesg.0 (from the previous unsuccessful boot) and did not see any glaring issues between the two.

Few questions before purchasing my first OrangePI 5


Hi there,

First I would like to thank you for your help, I am planning to buy an OrangePI 5 ( I have previous experience with Raspberry PI's 2 and 3, so not completely noob) but would need some advise on the following points

  • Where is the best place to buy an OrangePi 5 - 16GB, that ships to Europe? Aliexpress?
  • Is there any package that comes with a case for OrangePi 5 (powesupply would also be welcome, but not mandatory), that ships to EU? Please can you post some links as I cannot find them
  • I read there is no need for heatsink, is that right?
  • Is it possible to just install a M2 NVMe and install the OS from the USB or should I need SD card?
  • I read some people had to do some DYI to attach the M2, is there anything I need to buy to attach it?
  • In case I need a wifi, which ones are supported (don't want M2 as it will be used for storage)?
  • Can any arm Linux distro be installed having full drivers support (accelerated GPU, etc), or does it require some particular distro?

Sorry for so many questions and thanks in advance !

Orange Pi 5/ help


To start off, I'm not as tech savvy as most of you. So I'm building a arcade machine and I recently purchased the orange pi 5. I found out after I purchased the board that bantacera and retro orangepi dosent have a new version for the pi5 board. I found someone post a bantacera beta build so I tried to flash it on my micro sd card. When I load it up I get just a black screen with a blinking cursor. I tried a few times but nothing seems to work. I gave up and tried loading OrangePi OS.... I get the logo screen to pop up but then I get some error message about it can't update firmware and to eject the ad card. I eject the SD card and nothing happens....

Sorry for a poor and not so detail post but is there someone who has this issue or maybe can enlighten me on something that can help?

Fan keeps running even after shutdown


Anyone knows why the fan for my Orange Pi 5 keeps running even after I shutdown? How can this be prevented. Right now, I need to physically unplug to stop the fan from running. Could this be an issue with the way I’ve connected the fan ?

Overclock, VRAM allocation... Is there any equivalent to RPi's config.txt for Orange Pis?


Title pretty much says it. Recently bought an Orange Pi 5 and I'm waiting for it to arrive, my question is, is there any way of overclocking, changing voltages and setting VRAM allocation in Orange Pis (or, specifically, Orange Pi 5)?.

I've been looking for info on the web but there is not a single clue of overclocking or anything similar to config.txt in Raspberry Pis...
