How to use ov5640 on BPI-M2+

$ sudo apt-get install git

Step 2: Update bpi-tools

$ git clone GitHub - BPI-SINOVOIP/bpi-tools: tools for Banana Pi $ cd bpi-tools $ sudo ./bpi-tools -u -U

Step 3: Use bpi-update to update kerenl (bpi-m2p.conf)

Step 4: Check again to see if the kernel’s been updated. The version should be newer than Thu Nov 17 08:10:07 UTC 2.016

$ sudo uname -a

pi@bpi-iot-ros-ai:~$ uname -a
