TESTRELEASE: debian stretch + kernel 4.4 firmware release (hw accelerated), kodi installable
THANKS TO: @Kwiboo for sharing his kernel work and the rockchip guys @wzyy2, @stdint/@ayaka

* unpack it: 7z x debian9_kernel4.4_firefly_miqi_v0.1.7z
* put device in recovery/maskrom mode
* sudo ./flash.sh

cheers and have fun! -- mac-l1

How to flash on Windows or Linux with RKFlashKit?

Getting error - upgrade_tool: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory when using sudo ./flash.sh

Getting error - upgrade_tool: error while loadi ...

the latest linux tool from rockchip is used in the flash.sh script: rkdeveloptool
it replaces the old upgrade_tool and is included in the 7z file.
it can also be found here: https://github.com/rockchip-linux/rkbin/tree/master/tools

don't think the old upgrade_tool or rkflashkit are still usable as rockchip has moved to more linux generic firmware files instead of rockchip dedicated ones.

maybe also try to "
  1. sudo apt-get install libudev1
Copy the code
" first.

cheers -- mac-l1

Hi kxz:
the "upgrade_tool" with version 1.24 can replace the "rkdeveloptool" .use the same argument.
I have checked ,

Hi mac-l1
the KODI performed very good on the firefly-rk3288 board. the H264,H265 and the 4K all works fine !
Thanks for your excellent work

It will be great if it can be combined with an Android firmware, dual-boot perhaps?
But I don't know about different bootloaders, Android, Linux how it will work?

hi ttodorov,
no, it wouldnt work on rk3399. maybe a developer could do the same for rk3399 as the sources (boot, kernel, debian, libs) are also available for rk3399. i dont have such a device, so cant help you here...
cheers -- mac-l1
