I finally got around to trying this image on an nvme drive. Yes it boots straight from the nvme without the sdcard. Yes it brings up the desktop and yes Firefox and VLC are there.
I tried youtube and the video quality and sound quality is impressive.
Congrats on all the success and progress. It’s looking great.
I’m really looking forward to being able to do an apt-get upgrade without breaking everything.
It’s really painful to be reflashing images to sdcard/nvme often. Doesn’t anybody else feel the same?
Here is a friendly reminder to flash the latest firmware:
wget https://github.com/starfive-tech/VisionFive2/releases/download/VF2_v3.6.1/u-boot-spl.bin.normal.out wget https://github.com/starfive-tech/VisionFive2/releases/download/VF2_v3.6.1/visionfive2_fw_payload.img apt-get install mtd-utils cat /proc/mtd flashcp -v u-boot-spl.bin.normal.out /dev/mtd0 sync flashcp -v visionfive2_fw_payload.img /dev/mtd1 sync
