Does anyone can tell me what microcontrolle/boards other than the pi will fit into the pi-top? I might be interested in some more powerful boards, so I would love to know the requirements for the boards!
So, I'm running an ODROID-C2 in my pi-top laptop, and aside from a slight video issue it works. The Odroid also has the same # of GPIO pins and with Arch, there was even a prog to match the GPIOs up to RaspPi specs.
So, I should be able to run it fully off the Odroid, once I get the video issue sorted. But, same form factor and according to specs, the Hub should be able to output the necessary amperage for higher-powered SBCs
So it's all about the GPIO pins. This is what we need if we want to use a SoC computer with the CEED.
Now I will start to search to see the fastest thing that has Raspberry Pi compatible GPIO pins... sorry to hear it sounds like the ODroid isn't matching the Raspberry Pi spec possibly
An interesting idea could be using RTK.GPIO with NUC/Mini-ITX form factor and 12v-5v step down, though it would need alot of rehousing
Alright, so. Update: I was successfully able to access the boot.ini file within the OS. However, I modified my own from a Raspberry Pi2 running Pi-op OS. It'll be in the root directory (cd /) and then the /boot subdirectory.
cd / cd boot sudo nano boot.ini
sudo nano is necessary to change the boot.ini file. Only uncomment the satenev line for "1360x768_60.00" line. You'll have to scroll down to find it. After tha simply remove the "#" symbol and hit "ctrl + x" to save the file. After that reboot your ODROID and give it a second. Mine still gave me artifacts until it got to that line and then gave me the terminal screen (I'm using Arch so mine doesn't start with a GUI), in the correct resolution and visible.
Next orde of business is to get the power managment/screen brightness controls set up. I know it's done through the GPIO so I'll probably have to find the file in pi-top and point Arch at it. Hope that helped someone, and thank you Rene for the help!
