I plug the USB to my Raspi and work with screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200. Be aware of cross-bonding TXD and RXD.
Thanks @thomaspfeiffer
My TTL cable tested with FriendlyArm's Ubuntu without problem.

Thanks!
Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the report. I've created a Git ticket for this, will take a look: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/640

On the NanoPi Neo Air, I tried both using SD card and flashing to the emmc with DietPi_v138_NanoPiNEOAir-armv7-(Jessie)
edited the dietpi.txt file
it still doesn't connect to the wifi.

i tried dietpi with similar settings on raspberry pi 1, nanopi neo (ethernet ver) with USB dongles and it both works.

i also tried using armbian on the nanopi neo air, it does work fine but there's some setting need to be done eg the wifi need to be configure to switch on, by default its off.
and so far it doesn't auto connect to hidden ssid wifi on armbian.

i think g_serial is not running automatically
we need g_serial to run so that we can connect to the nanopi neo air through usb
since there's no video output and ethernet, and when the wifi can't auto connect, we can't do anything without g_serial

Hello,

Nice work on this one.
It would seem that bluetooth is not working?
I posted an issue on Git:
https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/738

On the stock Ubuntu Core bluetooth works but it seems they use different drivers.(brcmhd)

Hello,
Let me ask about Bluetooth. I am working on my project based on NanoPi Neo Air, where Bluetooth has critical meaning.
Would you tell me - is Bluetooth on the board stable?
I have seen instructions from Wiki (about using Bluetooth on Nano Air) and I have seen it works. I have seen it it dozen times performed by other and it works. But my unit will send (using Bluetooth) hundreds of files, many hours, many days and the requirement is it to be sent with no troubles (security matters).
As I know, version of linux apps starting with zero (like 0.24 for obexftp) means that they are not final version, I am right? And I have red that such version shouldn't be used in production systems? But there is not any other... (last obexftp is from year ago, no updates...).
Making real test needs me to buy more NanoPi and make long tests - that's why I am asking here, to save my $ and time. But maybe I'm scared unnecessarily?
Did someone tested that Bluetooth in NanoPi Neo Air?
