Any images that will work on an MiQi board?

I have a rare MiQi board that is very similar to the Tinkerboard with an RK3288 chip. Will the tinkerboard image work on this?

Processor — Rockchip RK3288 (4x Cortex-A17 cores @ 1.8GHz); Mali-T764 GPU
Memory — 1GB or 2GB DDR3; 8GB or 32GB eMMC; microSD slot
Display — HDMI 2.0 port
Networking — Gigabit Ethernet port

Currently I’m running from SD card using maskrom because I can’t for the life of me clear the eMMC using rkdeveloptools or anything.

Hi,

many thanks for your request. Well as you said, your board is not that common. Therefore it’s hard to say if DietPi will work. Basically you would have 2 options.

  1. try the tinkerboard image and check if it is working
  2. try running latest Armbian image and execute DietPi install script afterwords
  3. Armbian Image: https://www.armbian.com/miqi/
  4. DietPi install script: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/1285

It might happen that your board is not fully detected and some functions are not working because some functions will need a known device ID. But we will see once you tried one of the two options :smiley:
