Is there any dev working on the NanoPi R2S

Try this script

Do you have your modifications in a repo where we can take a look?

I see you noted CONFIG_IRQBALANCE. It’s interesting because I had tried irqbalance as well but found it didn’t separate eth0 and eth1 to different cores.

What kind of load were you putting on your NanoPi during the screen capture?

Only recorded here, CONFIG_IRQBALANCE is not implemented yet

Hi, I am trying to boot openwrt from orangepi r1 plus spi but don't know how to start
like editing dts modifying uboot etc. Could you help me please?

Hi,
i tried some things to bring mtd nor flash support

  1. i compiled this repo to run openwrt on my sd card https://github.com/jayanta525/openwrt-nanopi-r2s
    then mtd not exist in default shown below.
root@OpenWrt:/# cat /proc/mtd
dev:    size   erasesize  name
  1. i started to add SPI node to rockchip.dtb found in my sd card's mmcblk0p1 partition

i converted dtb to dts and add SPI support changes shown below (if it is true, please check)
right side original one, left side modified one to support SPI

Here is the result it seems works!

converting dtb to dts

dtc -I dtb -O dts -f rockchip.dtb -o rockchip.dts
dtc -I dts -O dtb -f rockchip.dts -o rockchip.dtb

So i will try to modify uboot any help would be appreciated..

Please refer to this thread: Xunlong Orange Pi R1 Boot from Flash

You'll find the appropriate modifications in the discussions.

As for RK3328 SoC, I will order a 16M SPI flash and test it out in a while, and will post back here.

In addition to uboot modification, some openwrt makefile modifications is required along with kernel_config.

Please start fresh with a fork of openwrt upstream.

first of all, SPI partitions in uboot must be added via a patch file, and then in linux dts.

Hi,

Thanks for your interest,
3.)
i have edited makefile like shown below and compiled openwrt it gives me 5.9M sysupgrade image

...
...
### Devices ###
define Device/Default
  PROFILES := Default
  KERNEL := kernel-bin | lzma
  IMAGES := sysupgrade.bin
  SUPPORTED_DEVICES := $(subst _,$(comma),$(1))
  DEVICE_DTS = rockchip/$$(SOC)-$(lastword $(subst _, ,$(1)))
  BLOCKSIZE :=64k
  IMAGE_SIZE := 16286k
  IMAGE/sysupgrade.bin = append-kernel | append-rootfs | pad-rootfs | \
  	append-metadata | check-size $$$$(IMAGE_SIZE)
endef

include $(SUBTARGET).mk

$(eval $(call BuildImage))

4.) i have cloned this uboot repo > https://github.com/u-boot/u-boot.git
and added spi booting options to nanopi-r2s-rk3328_defconfig shown below and compiled uboot

CONFIG_SPL=y
CONFIG_CMD_SF=y
CONFIG_CMD_SPI=y
CONFIG_DM_SPI=y
CONFIG_DM_SPI_FLASH=y
CONFIG_SPI_FLASH=y
CONFIG_SPI_FLASH_MACRONIX=y
CONFIG_SPI_FLASH_WINBOND=y
CONFIG_SPI=y
CONFIG_SPI_MEM=y

result images are :u-boot.bin u-boot.cfg u-boot.cfg.configs u-boot.dtb u-boot-dtb.bin u-boot-dtb.img u-boot.img u-boot.itb u-boot.its u-boot.lds

which image should i flash to SPI flash and i don't know below partitioning is true i moved this flash parts from opir1 . Can you help me this point?

@alfa I would suggest opening up a new thread for the discussion.

Please post the same in the new created thread.
We will continue the discussion over there.

Hi, we can continue with this thread

I have the NanoPi R2S board with me. I will solder a 4MB flash and test out the configurations first.

Meanwhile please wait for input from different users, might be helpful for troubleshooting later.

EDIT: Just found out I only have an 2MB flash. OpenWrt won't fit in here.
Please follow up on the original thread.
