Rock 5A Support

Is there going to be an image for the Rock 5A. Just got mine and tried the 5B and Rock 4 images and they don’t work. Was just wondering if there were any plans to support it.

Ah I see. That’s unfortunate. It’s a nice box cause it has the same form factor as the pi with quite a bit more oomph. Was hoping to replace the pi in my Argon EON. I still have use for it but sad it’s such a pain to develop dietpi for.

We are quite a small team with limited resources. As well it’s impossible for us to own each and every SDC available. Especially if it comes to device not used that often.

I get it and I can still use it just with the main OS. I need the extra horsepower. Sitll using dietpi to run my DNS server on the RP4 that was in the EON, just moved that to a separate case. Was too underpowered for the backup server which is what the Rock 5a is doing now.

em… actually I had made the dietpi image for the Rock 5A… do you need it?


That’d be awesome thanks!

See if you can download this?


Hey I was able to grab it and get it installed last night. Works great. Thanks!

Glad to hear that it’s working for you.
Be reminded that the GPU and NPU supports require Ubuntu environment.
However I am not able to incorporate them into the image and you are on your own. :smiling_face_with_tear:

+1 for an image for Rock 5 Model A

So will it be in the Rock 5B image?
(my rock is in shipping)

As I remember, the Rock 5B was already supported.
For Rock 5A, it seems not yet available in the upcoming Open Beta v8.22, so maybe you need to wait for official support.
