Hi talds! Thanks for the clarification. So wifi in general works, but airmon-ng does not work (or at least not properly... ).
I think, I know where the problem could be, but I have no solution for it so far:
Offensive security patches the kernel sources before building the arm-kernels:
echo "Patching kernel"
wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/mac80211.compat08082009.wl_frag+ack_v1.patch -O mac80211.patch
patch -p1 --no-backup-if-mismatch < mac80211.patch
I think, this patch is missing now, to get it work. But that's where the trouble begins:
Until now, I'm still not able to build my own kernel. That's the only reason I used the prebuild boot-image from the descriped ubuntu-Image from above. I tried the instructions at http://radxa.com/Rock/Booting_Linux (with and without kernel-patch, using the descriped cross-compiler as well as the following https://github.com/offensive-security/gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.7) without success yet. If you are able to build a working boot-image, this would probably solve your problem. Maybe it's also possible to apply the patch to an existing kernel-build? I just don't know
Have you ever tried to build your own radxa-boot-image?

Problem, solved. Electrically, everything looks good, I scaled the voltage level between TX and GND, it looks correct. I suspect my USBTTL converter, it works now, I will test with different USBTTL converter anyway (with different chipsets)
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).
Creating backups from your sd-card is quite easy:
On Linux, you can use the standard dd tool:
sudo dd if=/dev/sdx of=/path/to/image bs=1M
Where /dev/sdx is your SD card.
On Mac, you can also use the standard dd tool with a slightly different syntax:
sudo dd if=/dev/rdiskx of=/path/to/image bs=1m
Where /dev/rdiskx is your SD card.
Restoring the created image works the same way:
sudo umount /dev/sdx
sudo dd if=/path/to/image of=/dev/sdx bs=1m
sudo diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskx
sudo dd if=/path/to/image of=/dev/rdiskx bs=1m
I hope, that helps!
Basically no extra setup AFAIK, there is (by default) there parameter set to
CMDLINE:console=ttyFIQ0,115200 console=tty0 [...]
which should define a console output on boot on said tty with a baud rate of 115200.
There should be an init-script named sth like auto-serial-console (currently at work so i can't look it up) which binds it via getty to enable login over this console.
I'm not really deep enough in the matter to figure out which tty[S/F(...)] is actually connected to which part of the hardware, so I got no further info here.
What really bugs me is that I can't use the UART interfaces on the GPIO header either, since it keeps telling me those are already in use...
The gpio number is different from the 3.0.36 kernel and the mainline kernel. The 3.0.36 kernel has an offset of 160 when using the gpio, but the mainline kernel gpio starts from 0. We will update the pyRock to support both kernel.
As this 'compatible CSI camera. It's OV5640 sensor based and 500M pixels with auto focus' seems no longer available (at least from this specific seller), is there any confirmed working and available camera modul someone could recommend.
Best, if it can connect 1:1 to the RockPro CSI-port.
i have the same problem with my rock pro but a little bit different.
My board just fresh purchased from the distributor watterott.
I have two rock pro boards, my first board has no problems an i can flashing nand images problems free
So, Im trying to flashing my another board with an ubuntu image for the first time.
And that is a problem.
If i connect the board to the usb port of my notebook then i got no reaction from the board (All drivers installed).
In the device manager can i find the device.
The red led is glowing up an the green led glowing not after connecting the otg cable with holded recovery key button.
If connect my board without pressing any buttons then glowing up the green led after a few seconds.
I dont now what to do with board.
Please help me.
Thanks and regards
This is compatibility of chipsets to the aircrack-ng suite.
RTL8187L is supported by airodump for Linux, but need patch.
RTL8188 is not supported.
Maybe somebody know what kernel configure options should I set for using SPI via /dev/spidev? I tried:
but in /dev I see only device spi_misc_test, and if I try read mode by ioctl( SPI_IOC_RD_MODE ) from it than I get error: Not a typewriter
Is somebody have success with spi?
That is odd though. I downloaded the sources a while ago, I'm sure the Android build page had the 4.4.2 sources from the git.jp.linux-rockchip.org site! I copied and pasted the address without looking here, but I was still attempting to build 4.4.2. Like I said the build may have worked for the radxa rock pro but I built it for the lite. Any suggestions? Did the earlier version of the 4.4.2 code not have the build instructions for the lite?
I was wondering whether it is possible to create a dual-boot system, where the latest available Android image can be placed on the NAND and Debian (or Ubuntu) distro to be installed/put in ext. USB device. More importantly - do you think that putting Linux on ext. USB drive (HDD) will work faster, than using Linux on NAND?
Something makes me believe that using NAND would be faster, but who knows..
The main thing that concerns me is whether both OSes will be upgrade-able independently.
As the Dual-Boot images are not with the latest version of the released OS images, I was wondering if the already released latest ones can be used without putting much effort for that purpose.
I wrote up a small guide with a script for configuring the Radxa as a Ops dashboard for those working on Ops teams. Perhaps it'll help someone out there
If ur on windows download a program called WIN32 DISK IMAGER that will allow u to flash the .img to the sd card
@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.

After i was few weeks away frome here, i've noticed that our community is full of double posts. Same or almost the same title with a time span of 1 hour. Please, think about, that by creating more than one thread, with the same trouble, will not produce faster reply on this. Today i've deleted more than 10 topics... Seems that i will have to warn some people.
some "issues" of the new page:
wiki button does not link to the wiki
no pictures under Products/Rock.../Features
no pictures in the gallery at the moment (think they were there already)
