Armbian images for Station M1.

1. Download,

2. Unpack,

3. burn the resulting image to the SD card.

4. Connect the SD card and turn on the power.

The system will start automatically.

Please note that you do not need to erase anything in eMMC \ SPI.

When you disable the SD card, the standard Android from eMMC will work.


AltLinux images (Russian Linux) for Firefly Station P1 \ M1 is available.

Starting the system is similar to starting Armbian\LE.

Download the image, unpack it, burn it to a medium SD \ USB, connect it to P1\M1 and turn on the power. At the first start, you need to perform several steps to configure the system.

For those who want to see how AltLinux works on P1\M1 and want to keep the regular StationOS system in eMMC, you can use the combined option. Download and burn the latest version of ArmbianTV to the SD card, download and burn the AltLinux image to the USB media. Connect the SD card and USB flash drive simultaneously to P1\M1 and turn on the power. AltLinux will start automatically. I draw your attention to M1, you need to connect a USB flash drive to the USB 2.0 connector (USB 3.0 does not work yet to run external systems). Any port can be used on P1.The new version is 20220419. A new procedure for preparing the system for an SD card (this option works independently, without an additional Armbian Sd card).

The procedure for preparing the system.

Download the image,
unpack it, burn it to the SD card. Download the desired u-boot option

(pay attention - you need to carefully choose the correct version exactly for your model). Write the resulting u-boot image to the SD card. I pay attention, this is important, the recording order must be strictly observed - the first to record the system image, the u-boot image is recorded strictly after recording the system image, immediately after recording the system image.Version 20220428 with kernel 5.17.4Added the installation function on eMMC.To install on the internal memory, after starting the system from the SD card, run the commandsudo nand-sata-installselect eMMC installationRespond to script requests.Before starting the installation, I strongly recommend creating a full compressed backup of the internal memory. To do this, BEFORE running the installation script, run the ddbr utility and choose to create a compressed copy.More info for AltLinux ... 6orderby%3Dlastpost
