If it’s really from “30.11.2015” it doesn’t contain latest fixes: https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-M3-bsp/commits/master

Just as a warning: This is NOT an Armbian image but just the combination of outdated kernel/u-boot stuff with an Armbian rootfs where most things don’t work as expected. And it’s not worth the time to try out.


/bin/systemd not enabled, such as it is, or what settings are required?

How to make work WiFi? BPI M3 Armbian

I am not 100% sure but I think its fixed in 4.20.y (DEV) kernel.

Where I can get 4.20 kernel?

armbian-config -> alternative kernel (if you are using official Armbian, don’t know for 3rd party Armbian builds)

Thanx for answer! It did not help…
