Hmmmm ... which device do you have please?

ODROID-XU4 (which we are talking about here)

or

ODROID-HC1 ???

We talk here before only about ODROID-XU4.
As far as I can remember, no one of the Mod-team own a ODROID-HC1.

If it is a ODROID-HC1, it's only "based on the very powerful ODROID-XU4 platform".
But as far as I have read, it had some significat hardware difference:
  • NO Power buttom
  • NO HDMI connector
  • NO GPIO pin or Expansion Connectors
  • NO eMMC5.0 HS400 Flash Storage Slot and boot support selector
  • ONLY 1x USB 2.0 (Host) Port, NO SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) ports
  • JMicron JMS578 USB 3.0 to SATA Bridge onboard
  • NO SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) to Serial ATA3 adapter
So it is a differnt device.
And yes, this information on their web side:
HARDKERNEL wrote:
System Software

Ubuntu 16.04 + OpenCL on Linux Kernel 4.9 LTS
Debian, DietPi, Arch-ARM, OMV and other Linux distributions are available too.
I don't know anything about DietPi support for ODROID-HC1 and can't find any hints @Fourdee work on it.
This will only be possible, if he gets a device from Hardkernel or by user donation.

DietPi is based on Debian 8 Jessie maintained by meveric.

DietPi for Odroid XU3/4

Where is a Odroid HC1 nightly builds with kernel 4.14.y by Igor Pecovnik (ARMbian) since Nov 04. So support of this device is brand new,
But ARMbian has moved on to Ubuntu.

No, but thanks for your offer. :)
I own more then 10 SBC , laying around here, all paid by myself.
For now, I only will buy devices, who take an interest. And it is nothing out where at the moment.
But you can donate Fourdee and ask him, if he can get support for Odroid HC1 devices.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.

Dear k-plan,

the actually Image (Kernel 3.10.105+ and 3.10.106+) for the XU4 works mostly on the odroid HC-1 (as i have one :mrgreen: ),
Software packages already testet: UrBackup, Syncthing work out of the box.

One major problem i had before was a faulty SD-Card (Intenso), then the HC1 starts and lights are blinking, you thought fine :D ,
and wait and wait and wait... :o ...error correction of faulty sectors..... so when the HC1 does not start with the XU4 aktually image, take a better SD-CARD :D

Test Images "XU4 | Kernel 4.9 testing #926" from Fourdee on GitHub also works so far with Odroid HC-1,
just tested with following Sofware Package ( UrBackup, Syncthink, CertBot, LLMP,NetData) so far.

Very informative secpri, thank you. I have several Sandisk Ultra Class 10 UHS-I Micro SDs coming Thursday. Not touching anything until then. I've had these SDs for some time so could very well be some are flaky.

Odroid have their own version of Win32DiskImager that verifies cards after flashing them - have you tried this?

Good idea John. I need to have one of those for when things aren't working but should be. Two critical variables eliminated as problems, a good image and a good SD. In my next AmeriDroid order!
