- When I access the using my mobile, it by default will redirect to the mobile version, which should be good. But the problem is it redirects to the forum Homepage, very bad. If it can't be fixed, just remove the redirection.
- It need Flash just to change one's avatar. We don't use Flash anymore, replace it with simple image file upload.
- Still about avatar, zhao_steven should have avatar, an unique one.

The forum is a joke just as the support of the Orange boards. zhao_steven sells hardware and runs. Some good souls keep the show on the road. Armbian/Openelec/sunxi are your only reliable sources for software and information. Pointing out the obvious on this forum only tickles the Xunlong trolls but has no consequences at all in improving (non-existing) support.
Best of luck to you.

I think your expectations are unreasonable.  The forum is free and the boards are cheap.  Do you really expect free software and support as well ?

I'm still using my sunxi linux kernel on my OPi A20.  I bought an OPi H3 but have never really got any value out of it.  The A20 board has nice features and seems a good effort.  The H3 board has dropped features to save cost I guess and with the lack of software and heat problems doesn't seem worthwhile to me.

These cheap boards need external support.  It's good that people do the support.  It's also good that people make the cheap boards otherwise there'd be nothing to support.  So, things are probably as good as they can be.

Cheers,
Steven

what this forum needs is to be run on better HW. I'm guessing than it's running on single OPI One with dial up connection.
It's slow and load page forever. I can open 3 topics in 3 tabs, then go make a coffee and still have to wait.
