Rockpi4/radxa-apt

    ROCK Pi 4 >  Radxa APT

Radxa APT is the Debian package repository maintained by Radxa to provide ROCK Pi 4 and Rockchip vendor specific package.

Currently Radxa APT supports Debian Stretch and Ubuntu Bionic, each distro has testing and stable repo, choose one of below:

   export DISTRO=stretch
   export DISTRO=stretch-testing     # update more frequently but maybe unstable
   export DISTRO=bionic
   export DISTRO=bionic-testing      # update more frequently but maybe unstable
   export DISTRO=buster-testing      # update more frequently but maybe unstable

To use it, add radxa apt to your sources.list with the following command:

   echo "deb http://apt.radxa.com/$DISTRO/ ${DISTRO%-testing} main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/apt-radxa-com.list

For Chinese users

You can use https://apt.setq.me instead of http://apt.radxa.com to improve download speed. https://apt.setq.me is a mirror of Radxa APT.

Get the pub key

   wget -O - apt.radxa.com/$DISTRO/public.key | sudo apt-key add -

Update

   sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Install essential packages:

   sudo apt-get install rockchip-overlay rockchip-fstab

Notes:

Why do we need to install rockchip-fstab packages? There are kernel images, devicetree overlay and others files in the fourth partition, boot partition. Before updating kernel, rockpi4-dtbo and other packages, we need to mount /dev/mmcblk*p4 or /dev/nvme*p4 to /boot directory. Use command, mount, to show the mounted devices.

Install the latest u-boot

Type the following command.

 $ sudo apt-get install -y rockpi4b-rk-u-boot-latest

Screen shows

 ...
 You are currently running on board:
 ROCK PI 4B 
 There will be two steps that you have to confirm. One is upgrading bootloader on SPI Flash.
 The other is upgrading bootloader on eMMC or uSD card.
 
 Step one: upgrade bootloader on SPI Flash
 Boot device, SPI Flash, is not found. Make sure there is one SPI Flash on board.
 You can install package rockpi4-dtbo later manually and uncomment three lines in file /boot/hw_intfc.conf.
 intfc:uart4=off
 intfc:spi1=on
 intfc:dtoverlay=spi1-flash
 After restarting the Pi, execute command, /usr/local/sbin/rockpi4b_upgrade_bootloader.sh.

 Step two: upgrade bootloader on uSD card or eMMC.
 Boot device, uSD card or eMMC, is found. Would you like to upgrade bootloader on it?
 If yes, type Y/y. If no, type N/n.

Just type Y or y.

 y
 Backup bootloader on boot device (/dev/mmcblk1p2).

 Done.

Install the latest kernel

Now install the latest kernel package and module:

   sudo apt-get install linux-base
   sudo apt-get install linux-4.4-latest

After installation, check file /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf. It lists all kernel version installed in ROCK Pi. The kernel corresponding to the first label is the newest version and the first boot option.

When want to boot your wanted kernel by default, add one line in file /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf. The format is as follows:

   default <label name>

For example,

   default kernel-4.4.154-73-rockchip-00007-g155a65a

Save, sync and reboot. Now you boot into the new kernel.
