Hi vtec_4lyfe, I haven't forget you!
I just wanted to inform you, that I have nearly finished the task. Thanks to the help above from julien, I was able to create a bootable sd-image for kali-linux.

The only thing I still have to do, is adjusting some of my scripts so that the build process works equally fine for both kinds of images. As soon as I have done this,
I will commit the code to github and post the instructions to create the images here.

Btw, did you check out my nand-image yet, or do you wait for the sd-card image?



The rock pro on store.radxa.com is out of stock now. You can buy from seeed studio. The current selling version is rock pro(2014.06.10).



@Rob-Merriman, on Android I have the script from @gruuvinrob (above) in a personal folder and simply run it on startup via the app "init.d scripts support". Works very well, green light stops flashing after the system is fully started, which helps you to see when it's up if you are running it headless.

Link to the app:

I wonder what the best audio quality is, that the Radxa Rock Pro could output. Currently I am feeding an external DAC (Schiit Modi) through optical SPDIF from an RRP running XBMC on Android. The result is quite good, but I wonder where the limit would be.

We have quite a talk about it on Google+:

Would be very glad if experts and enthusiasts would join the discussion:

rgds, Markus


You just have to do all the steps descripted in the Install part of the readme:

sudo apt-get install gcc python-dev git clone https://github.com/radxa/pyRock.git cd pyRock sudo python setup.py install

sudo apt-get install gcc python-dev installs the tools needed to run pyRock, but not pyRock itself.
With git clone https://github.com/radxa/pyRock.git you get the source code of pyRock. After changing into the new created directory pyRock with cd pyRock there you will find the setup.py.
Finally run sudo python setup.py install to install pyRock.

I hope that helps.


Don't give up yet! Here is how zwanni got native 1wire (sort of) working
and there was another post about someone successfully using a i2c to 1wire bridge chip



the steps are describe above, basically you need to enable them using menuconfig and make sure they get activated / assigned in arch/arm/mach_rk3188/radxa-rock.c.

add the following to the include definitions:

#include <linux/w1-gpio.h>

Then, just like @zwanni described, add 'somewhere', you can place it near the other structs:

static struct w1_gpio_platform_data foo_w1_gpio_pdata = { .pin = RK30_PIN0_PA7, .is_open_drain = 0, }; static struct platform_device foo_w1_device = { .name = "w1-gpio", .id = -1, .dev.platform_data = &foo_w1_gpio_pdata, };

then add the following to __init machine_rk30_board_init(void)


And that's all there is to it... Just make sure that you build the kernel with the modules and then flash the kernel to your board. After that you should have w1 support on GPIO167 (GA07)

Just read @zwanni 's message carfully and you'll get it working.


alternatively you can build a new kernel where the LED's don't light up so you don't have to enter the command each time you boot.


@V-I-R-U-S Yes, we have the database automatically backup. That guy have modified the theme folder(index.php). Now i have cleaned it. radxa.com is back now.


这个是因为 camera还不支持 mali gpu,建议使用非opengl es版本的linux系统。
