Banana Pi BPI-R2 Open Source smart router with MTK 7623N design

Hi Panos

We don’t validate the openswitch on bpi-r2, but I think it’s easy to run it.

The built-in storage is 8GB EMMC.

There are two onboard SATA interfaces, the system can boot from SATA hard driver, (please note that both preloader and uboot must be in EMMC or SD card).

We can’t install SSD HD to mPCIE slot.

BPI-R2 Case is shown below:

Kernel (full boot-partition) must also be on sd/emmc, only root-partition can be on sata-drive if using a kernel with builtin-sata-support

When can we expect the BPI-R2 Case? i don’t see this product available in the reseller page.

It’s there: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/BPI-R2-Metal-case-only-applicable-to-BPI-R2/32855260632.html

But for me the shipping is 3 times the value of the case, and 35 euro for the case is a little too much imho. I hope they offer a less expensive shipping option, I would buy it for sure.

Agreed, crazy shipping is 3 times the value of the case. I will check again with EU reseller.
