I miss some hardware features on OSHW Radxa Rock boards. It would be great to have more control and security over the Radxa boards.
How about an interchangeable NAND flash? The board should then never brick.
I guess the memory has about 100000 - 1000000 write / erase cycles.
When the NAND flash memory is broken, is the single-board then useless?
A physical write-protect switch for NAND flash and SD card would be great,
then it would be possible to run a live operating system in read only mode.
A possibility to enable or disable WiFi with a jumper would also be nice.
How about a switch to use only the SD card or NAND flash?

It looks like a hardware problem. Radxa will do the RMA for you.
You will have to wait until June. What features do you want from rock2 full but not on rock2 square?
I found an open-source tool for flashing Rockchip devices that also works on OSX:
Now the question is, what parameters should I give it to flash the latest Rabian image?
I had solved this issue, I had reference of schematic for connection of LCD
and I had loaded radxa_rock_pro_android_kitkat_lvds_standby_nand_20150122.zip.
@gruuvinrob need to see Radxa in a storefront. Fry's isn't a bad choice.. Just have to have all the basics ready to make it easy to get the feet wet, and try and get it in a boxstore... You don't see many competitor's products next to arduino, if, they even carry it... So, it may not turn out to be too hard. A "startup" wanting to do a test market type situation in one city appeals to big companies, since, the name comes with low prices due to being unheard..
Just need a district manager to talk to, and a supply of about a dozen or so of each model, and who knows..
@hipboi Thanks for the suggestion and will try it.

Yes you can power your board via micro usb
Hello! Can not run the image. Diodes blinking, but the image does not start. Help!
How can I build a custom distribution using Yocto? Is there any support for that? Existing recipes?
Followed the instructions completely to compile kernel and android. But no luck.
"lunch 13" still works. Is it a typo of 13?
device/rockchip/rksdk/device.mk:20: device/rockchip/rksdk/preinstall/preinstall.mk: No such file or directory

make: * No rule to make target `device/rockchip/rksdk/preinstall_del/preinstall.mk'. Stop.
Don't have a product spec for: 'rksdk' Do you have the right repo manifest?Took "lunch 13", still failed. The symptom (reboot every ~6s) is same as before.
some system info: ubuntu 14.02, gcc version 4.8.2
How do I download the rom?
I have raxda rock lite, are there any ready to boot images for lite as well? Can I simply use same image file that we use for the rock pro?
You can try to fsck the nand in initrd. You can stop booting at initrd by removing the "root=/dev/block/..." in parameter.
@jasse If it possible, I'm interested in your board too. Thanx in advance.

@hipboi Here you go, Tom
You can download and test it right here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.andromium.os
My IMHO: Looks promising, but i have no use for it.

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)
