Hi WFK as You say you have and the HC1 board and the HC2
are the boards the same and does the HC2 report as a HC1 or does it report as a HC2 ?
because for me the main difference looks to be the housing for the 3.5 inch disk

I only have xu3 and xu4 dtb files in my /boot.  As far as I can tell, with my kernels, the system identifies as "Odroid XU4" and uses the xu4 dtd.
So I don't know at what point the need for a separate hc1 dtd file in /boot was introduced.

Going through the dmesg, I see no indication of either HC1 or HC2, only XU4.

Afaict, the boards are identical except for the 5V vs 12V power circuit.

Re: Devuan on Odroid HC1

hello wtf,
Can you boot and have Ethernet in Devuan xu4 image?

Because that seems to be a difference,
Illegalum detected that he doesn't have Ethernet, on the devuan xu4 image.

Perhaps because of Power supply differences,
The supply voltage to the usb-ethernet controller comes from different places and so, Ethernet is not power properly..

Can you check with devuan xu4 image?
if that doesn't work( xua devuan image...ethernet ), can you install my compiled kernel and check if everything works then?

Thanks in advance,

EDIT: there are there a HC1 dts file even in hardkernel '4.14.165':

Re: Devuan on Odroid HC1

Hello Illegalum,
I created a hardkernel version, if you could install it, to test, I apreciate smile

This share here, contains the deb packages to try the hardkernel compiled kernel, and also the new boot.ini file..

Backup first your boot.ini file:
    cp boot.ini boot.ini.backup

Then copy to the sdcard, the contents of the shared folder:
    linux-headers-4.14.165_4.14.165-4_armhf.deb
    linux-image-4.14.165_4.14.165-4_armhf.deb
    linux-libc-dev_4.14.165-4_armhf.deb

Copy also 'boot.ini.new' to /boot,

then boot the board, install the new kernel:
    dpkg -i *.deb
change 'boot.ini.new' to 'boot.ini':
    mv /boot/boot.ini.new /boot/boot.ini

then restart and check if that kernel, works well in your board,

if it doesn't:
    dpkg -l |grep -E "linux-.*(image|headers|libc-dev)"
    See the 4.14.165 installed packages and remove them:
       apt-get remove --purge linux-headers-4.14.165 linux-image-4.14.165 linux-libc-dev
    get back your 'boot.ini' file:
        mv /boot/boot.ini.backup /boot/boot.ini

And restart..

It would be nice to get some feedback from you, since you own one of this boards smile

Best Regards,
