Pi-Star Updating of OrangePi & NanoPi

Post by K1IMD »

Does anyone know if there are plans to upgrade the OrangePi and/or NanoPi from 3.4.x to 4.1.x?

I have a couple boards that have those processors.

I cannot upgrade the firmware as the 3.4.x will not run on firmware versions newer than Version 2019013 to take advantage of updated code.

It appears that those platforms have been abandoned.

I would just buy official RPi boards if you want to run newer software.

Yes buying new hardware is a solution to your problem, its incredibly cheap too, its not like we are talking about having to spend thousands of dollars to buy new equipment we are talking about about 5 to 25 dollars American. I realize you don't WANT to buy an official RPi board, but you caused yourself this conundrum when you purchased an Orange Pi in the first place.

Here's a simple guide since I don't have the hardware to go into greater details.

1. Install OS on Orange Pi.
2. download, compile and install all the required software.
3. configure and test

Yes, it is. It is missing a large user base, meaning that a developers time is best spent developing software for a device that is more commonly used.
