Information about installing the GPU drivers

Interesting. I am waiting to buy once the strengths of these devices become a bit clearer.

I briefly owned a Pipo P1 with the RK3288. It had a TF 3G sim, which required reboots to register any settings although it's accessible from the outside. It also failed to pick up 3G if you turned on wifi and then turned it off, which was a pain. Reboot required.

The Pipo P1 arrived with an antutu score of 40k+. Antutu updated itself (as things do) and the score came down to 34,400:-(.

As for the Nvidia K1, they claim 2.2 Ghz. One report commented "2.2 Ghz? Forget it - the test model did 1557Mhz and no faster. Antutu score 28000." Perhaps heat was the issue?

Watch out for RockChip kernel modules in the firmware which are not part of the kernel. They seem to write one kernel module per SoC (perhaps all of them do). It can make alternative software difficult.

Overclocked RK3288

business_kid 03-07-2015 11:32 AM

It sounds like a familiar line:

"Brief bursts of extreme speed followed by inevitable disaster." They're welcome to over clock it, and try to deal with the extra heat until something fizzles. I'm not fitting a heatsink & fan to a tablet. What struck me is that the Android version that came with the Pipo I had is pure crap. I have a falling-apart RK3188 and have become increasingly skeptical about Rockchip's 3288 offering. Interesting link, however.

@sndwvs: Congratulations and thank you for providing Slackware for Firefly-RK3288.
I got mine just a couple of days ago and I'm still experimenting with it.
Is the Slackware release you made a soft or hard-float one?
I am interested in video playback and so obviously a hard-float release will suit me fine!

@rouvas: Is the Slackware release you made a soft or hard-float one?

Two things I wanna ask you:
1. Can you give me a solution to flash it using windows? I got no linux machine at the moment
2. Does it have video acceleration?

1. flash windows guide http://radxa.com/Rock/flash_the_image
2. OpenGL ES Linux support on Firefly-RK3288 Development Board. Firefly-RK3288 development board is equipped with the powerful Mali T764 GPU. Lately, ARM has released the binary user-space fbdev driver.

No succes at all. It says "loading firmware failed" when using rkbatchtool. Any idea why?

Still no luck. It says again "Loading firmware failed" in AndroidTool. I tried also Rkbatchtool and the same message is present, plus few extra infos, like in the screenshot attached. Interesting that the support chip is reported as RK31, not RK32.
