I received today the Mangopi MQ1PH pink and I am looking forward to using it. However, I have problems getting it to boot or better to see the OS on my monitor. I tried to flash several different images on an SD card with no success. Nither the official tina-d1h-mq-pro-overlay-hdmi-wifi.img nor RVBoards_D1_Debian_img_v0.4.1.img worked. When I plug in the power first a green LED lights up followed by a blue LED. The D1 chip is also getting wormed but I can’t get a display on the monitor. So I assume that it actually can boot.
Does anyone have a working image file that allows using a monitor with a graphical interface available? Or is there a method by which I can connect to the mango pi headless by another computer when it is not connected to the network?
Thanks for the heads up. I’ve just got mine today, and was precisely thinking using the RVBoards image. I will let you know how it goes once I manage to get a mini-HDMI adapter first.
There’s also a Mainline Linux for D1 and a Mango_Pi groups on Telegram, so perhaps (if you haven’t joined yet) you could get there also some support.
I’m lurking to see if anyone has success before I purchase one. I hope it works for you. If it does please post back and let us know what worked.
Thank you for the advice, I will try to Mainline Linux for D1 and check the Telegram groups
Sure, I will post my progress here. I still did not get it to work yet. I will let you know
thank you so much for all your replies. Issue is resolved
The armbian os that Ericmigi shared works as described on the Bret’s website link. Note I had to download the image from a mirror since the direct links on the page resulted in a download of only 54 bites. I used this mirror: Index of /mangopi-mq-pro-armbian/ and flushed the headless image: Armbian_22.08.0-trunk_Nezha_jammy_current_5.19.0.img.
- one of my friends compiled a tinna linux RISC-V image for me as described on the official page. We can tell it is booting but still no HDMI signal on all kinds of monitors that we tried.
- I also faced HDMI signal issues in the beginning with this armbian image. (similar to what I faced with installing armbian on a radxa zero). I managed to get a signal by first plugging it into an HDMI resolution screen during boot-up. No signal. I power off and power on the screen and it is flickering. then I plug in the mangopi while still running into my 2K screen and I see the boot text coming. at the next restart, my HDMI screen works fine. I have no idea why it works
thank you very much. It solved my problem
Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Server for RISC-V officially support D1 now. Can be downloaded from Download Ubuntu for RISC-V Platforms | Ubuntu
I have tested it. HDMI worked fine on MangoPi Pro. USB Lan (realtek-based) also worked out of box.
