Dieses Handbuch wurde für ROCK Pi 4 Enthusiasten entwickelt. Wir wünschen uns, dass du mehr über das ROCK Pi 4 Board erfährst, sowie wie du dich auf den grundlegenden Gebrauch vorbereiten und einrichten kannst. Der ROCK Pi 4 hat zwei Modelle, eines mit dem Namen ROCK Pi 4 Model A und das andere mit dem Namen ROCK Pi 4 Model B. Wenn du ein Board erhälst, musst du wissen, welches Pi-Modell und welche Hardware-Version vorhanden ist. Die Informationen sind auf der Oberseite der Platine aufgedruckt.

This guide is designed for ROCK Pi 4 enthusiast. The purpose is to learn about the ROCK Pi 4 board as well as how to prepare and set up for basic use. The ROCK Pi 4 has two models, one called ROCK Pi 4 Model A and the other called ROCK Pi 4 Model B. When you get a board, you need to know what Pi model it is and which hardware version it is. The information is printed in the top side of the board. We will introduce the board information as much as possible.
  
== Was wird benötigt==
+
== What you need ==
  
 +
=== Necessary ===
 +
* ROCK Pi 4 main board
 +
** ROCK Pi 4 Model A or Model B
  
 +
* One of the Storage media below:
 +
** [[rockpi4/hardware/μSD | μSD card]],  larger than 8GB.
 +
** [[rockpi4/hardware/emmc | eMMC Module]] , larger than 8GB with eMMC to μSD converter board.
  
=== Es wird benötigt ===
+
* [[rockpi4/hardware/powersupply | Power supply]]
* ROCK Pi 4 Hauptplatine
+
** The ROCK Pi 4 is powered by USB Type C port and supports a wide range of input voltage, from 9V to 20V. The power adapter can be USB Type-C PD 2.0 with 9V/2A, 12V/2A, 15V/2A and 20V/2A protocol compatible, or Quick Charge 2.0 9V/2A, 12V/2A compatible. A dummy 9V or 12V power adapter with USB C tail will also work. Warning: '''9V/12V USB C dummy power adapter is dangerous to other 5V only devices, don't mix them.'''
** ROCK Pi 4 Modell A oder Modell B
+
** If the power adapter is PD/QC compatible, the USB power cable must support USB data communication(USB 2.0 or 3.0) between the board and the power adapter, or the power adapter will not output desired voltage wanted by the board.
 +
** Note: '''We don't suggest using a 5V only USB C power adapter.''' The board may boot but it will cause stability issue once the system load rises.
  
* Eines der folgenden Speichermedien:
+
* USB Keyboard and Mouse
** rockpi4/hardware/uSD | uSD-Karte]], größer als 8GB.
+
** With four USB-A connectors, ROCK Pi 4 can be equipped with a full sized keyboard and mouse.
** rockpi4/hardware/emmc | eMMC Module]], größer als 8GB mit eMMC zu uSD Konverterkarte.
+
 
+
* [[rockpi4/hardware/powersupply | Power supply]]
+
** Der ROCK Pi 4 wird über den Typ-C-Anschluss mit Strom versorgt und verfügt über einen weiten Eingangsspannungsbereich von 9V bis 21V. Der Pi unterstützt den USB Typ-C PD 2.0 mit 9V/2A, 12V/2A, 15V/2A und 20V/2A. Außerdem unterstützt der Pi QC 3.0/2.0 mit 9V/2A und 12V/1.5A.
+
** Das von Ihnen verwendete Typ-C-Kabel muss die Datenkommunikation unterstützen. Wir nennen es USB Typ-C Ladedatenkabel.
+
 
+
* USB-Tastatur und -Maus
+
** Mit vier USB-A-Anschlüssen kann der ROCK Pi 4 mit einer vollwertigen Tastatur und Maus ausgestattet werden.
+
 
+
* Monitor und HDMI-Kabel
+
** ROCK Pi 4 ist mit einem vollwertigen HDMI-Anschluss ausgestattet. Es wird ein HDMI-fähiger Monitor empfohlen.
+
** HDMI EDID Anzeigedaten werden verwendet, um die beste Bildschirmauflösung zu bestimmen. Auf Monitoren und Fernsehern, die 1080p (oder 4K) unterstützten, wird diese Auflösung gewählt. Wenn 1080p nicht unterstützt wird, wird die nächste verfügbare Auflösung verwendet, die von EDID gemeldet wird. Dieser ausgewählte Modus funktioniert mit MOST, aber nicht mit allen Monitoren/Fernsehern.
+
  
 +
* Monitor and HDMI Cable
 +
** ROCK Pi 4 is equipped with a full sized HDMI connector. HDMI capable monitor is recommended.
 +
** HDMI EDID display data is used to determine the best display resolution. On monitors and TVs that support 1080p (or 4K) this resolution will be selected. If 1080p is not supported the next available resolution reported by EDID will be used. This selected mode will work with MOST but not all monitors/TVs.
  
 +
*USB to TTL serial cable
 +
**ROCK Pi 4 exports a dedicated serial console, which can access the low level debug message.
  
 +
*USB Male A to Male A cable

This guide is designed for ROCK Pi 4 enthusiast. The purpose is to learn about the ROCK Pi 4 board as well as how to prepare and set up for basic use. The ROCK Pi 4 has two models, one called ROCK Pi 4 Model A and the other called ROCK Pi 4 Model B. When you get a board, you need to know what Pi model it is and which hardware version it is. The information is printed in the top side of the board. We will introduce the board information as much as possible.

Starting the board for the first time

ROCK Pi 4 can be started with eMMC or μSD Card. Now, you are presented with two options when installing your new operating system onto your ROCK Pi 4.

Prepare

  • When start system with eMMC

Insert eMMC Module into eMMC to μSD card converter board. Insert the converter board into μSD Card Reader, which connects to host computer. The picture below shows.
(add eMMC, eMMC to μSD Module and μSD Card Reader picture)

If you do not have an eMMC to μSD card converter board, you can also first install a linux system to a μSD Card and then use the running μSD System to install the desired system to the eMMC card with the eMMC card already inserted into the Rock PI 4. See Rockpi4/install/eMMC.

  • When start system with μSD Card

Insert the μSD Card into μSD Card Reader, which connects to host computer. The picture below shows.
(add μSD Card and μSD Card Reader picture)

Write Image

  • Download the flash tool, etcher, from Downloads. Choose the right version for your host operation system. Here we operate on host Ubuntu 16.04.
