was wondering if any plans to release a 18.04 image for RK3399 are in the works
as 16.04 does not support this board much

I'm wondering the same.

There is also a performance concern : tests I made on diverse SBCs show a huge improvement when using 18.04.

It's easy to update to 18.04 yourself.

  1. sudo sed -i -- 's/xenial/bionic/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. apt update && apt full-upgrade
Copy the code


is perfectly fine. You are probably running out of space on the eMMC if you use the factory image, but even then,
  1. apt -f install && apt autoremove && apt clean && apt update && apt full-upgrade
Copy the code

once or twice gives you a running 18.04LTS system.

First thing I did with my RK3399.

I tried so to update my firefly 3399 from 16.04 to 18.04. But in my case there is an access error

E: Could not open lock file / var / lib / dpkg / lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/ var / lib / dpkg /), are you root?

I also tried to enter commands through the sudo but this did not change anything.

Actually, there's a new  ubuntu 18.04 for Firefly-RK3399 in

  http://www.t-firefly.com/doc/download/page/id/3.html

But it is in Baidu Pan up till now.  We're working on moving it to Google Drive.

Here comes the Ubuntu 18.04 firmware for Firefly-RK3399, with Google Drive link:

    https://drive.google.com/drive/f ... 089aMAW_4cDGF11F2ou

Uncompress the downloaded file using:

    unxz -k Firefly-RK3399-ubuntu18.04_20181017.img.xz

This firmware uses the gpt partition scheme. Therefore you need the latest
v3.4 upgrade_tool to upgrade the firmware. Download it from:

    http://download.t-firefly.com/pr ... grade_Tool_1.34.zip

To install upgrade_tool to /usr/local/bin, run:

    unzip Linux_Upgrade_Tool_1.34.zip
    cd Linux_Upgrade_Tool/Linux_Upgrade_Tool/
    chmod 755 upgrade_tool
    mv gpt_upgrade_tool
    sudo cp gpt_upgrade_tool config.ini /usr/local/bin/

Now that flashing tool `gpt_upgrade_tool` and firmware file are ready.
To upgrade from the old ubuntu 16.04, the board needs to enter MaskRom mode.
There're two methods:

1. Using the cutting edge metal tweezers following:

    http://en.t-firefly.com/index.php/doc/product/info/id/479.html

2. Or from the running Ubuntu 16.04, unplug the SD Card, and zero head zone of the eMMC by:
  
    sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk? count=$((0x2000))
    # Connect the TypeC cable with PC
    sudo reboot
   
Flash the firmware:

    cd /path/to/the/Firefly-RK3399-ubuntu18.04_20181017.img
    gpt_upgrade_tool uf Firefly-RK3399-ubuntu18.04_20181017.img

Good luck. If any question, write here. I'll try my best to help.

Hey Penguin,
I tried installing using your steps for ROC-RK3399-PC. But the upgrade tool wasn't detecting it.
Can you provide a direct SD Boot image for ubuntu18?
Thanks!!
