Hi, I have just check with the rockchip's engineer. That 's a problem they haven't fixed, will plan to resolve it in weeks .
We will release it as soon as it is ready. Thanks for your patience.

But, there are a limit ,when this demo is running ,the lightdm must be stopped. you can only see the HDMIIN picture, can't do any thing else.

hi thanks, i'll compile a new kernel from your source to get wifi working again.
I've also notice ...

Hi
We are using Ubuntu 16.04 version on RK3288 Firefly Reload board but so far have been unsuccessful in getting the hotspot working. The Wifi module is based on AP6335 some of the debug messages indicate the signal strength as Zero. There is no SSID broadcast too.
Warm regards

Hello,

I'm using image Firefly-rk3288_Ubuntu_1604_201705250940 and looking to get LVDS output working through the output pins to drive an LCD display.
But I cannot see the LVDS output interface if i run "sudo xrandr --query". Is it possible for me to get this working?

Best regards,
Jesper

I am interested in installing Ubuntu 16.04 for my RK3288, however the links you provided give 404 errors. Is the image available somewhere else?

Is there a new version of Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04 the last one I have is :

Firefly-rk3288_Ubuntu_1604_2016_10181203_Beta

and the current version linked on the download page is:

Firefly-RK3288_Ubuntu14.04_201803201135.img.7z


Other option is to get uboot 2018.01 and port a minimal 18.04 or 16.04.4 with either rockchip 4.4 kernel/t-firefly 4.4 kernel or  4.14 mainline,
using latest linaro toolchain:

gcc-linaro-7.3.1-2018.05-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz (cross-compile)

or

runtime-gcc-linaro-7.3.1-2018.05-arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz ( native)
