C-4 questions

Post by phaseshifter » Sun May 03, 2020 12:03 am

does it support petitboot like the n-2 ..i don't see a selector switch on the c-4..unless its under the board..i cannot see it from the pic i looked at

does the c-2 3.5 inch LCD shield fit it

can i run the c-2 series audio shield boards on it

can i just install kodi into Ubuntu and have the same features that core-elec does..if so how do i do it..::


thank you

* doesn't have an spi flash like n2, so no direct petitboot. Though it might work if flashed on an sd card.
* 3.5" shield is confirmed to work by tobetter
* no clue about audio shields. I'm not an audiophile :)
* it should work, but under fbdev, not x11. Should be the same as n2 (sudo apt-get install kodi-fbdev aml-libs)

There was a post somewhere about the HiFi Shields not working but a fix was incoming, I think by @tobetter

HiFi Shields will work, however there are some software issues around their support at the moment. viewtopic.php?f=201&t=38599&p=289927#p289927

Would be interested in petitboot running off sdcard also, maybe then can use the same emmc swapping between N2 and C4 (tobetter's ubuntu) for the OS.

So is there no switch at all as far as booting from emmc or sd card? Do I have to remove one or the other to boot from either of them?

No switch, if you have eMMC and MicroSD connected at the same time it will boot from eMMC.

There is no switch, but hopefully a future petitboot will allow you to choose.
