What are you going to use your 3066 for?
I'd like to use it for doing real-time lo-latency audio. Basically the =
same way I'm using my Raspberry Pi.
What are your initial impressions and findings?
Ambivalent. It sure is faster than a Raspberry Pi but RK3066 based devices =
have some drawbacks:
* No easy debugging access, I have yet to find the TXD pad on my RK3066.
* Fragmented development efforts. There are a gazillion git repositories wi=
th all kinds of kernel sources, tools, etc.
* There are simply a lot of RK3066 based devices around and since RockChip =
refuses to release their kernel source code people hacking on the RK3066/RK=
3188 depend on third-party manufacturers that do understand how GPL works a=
nd release parts of the code. Still there are things missing, I'm now s=
earching for a way to access the NAND from within Linux but there is no sou=
rce code anywhere for accessing the NAND on RK3066 based devices. Yeah, the=
re are pre-compiled kernel modules but those don't work on my install.<=
That would seem to be the biggest issue wi=
th these devices atm but one that should legally be resolved asap.<=
