i suppose it is the 1.3.2 version because is the last and the only thing written is h3droid instal ...

Hi, If you see standard network [ON] under wifi slider then turn it off and  wait  30 seconds before activating wifi. Once wifi is auth and has ip,  wait a bit and restart to permanently set it on.

These aren't the Droids you're looking for. . .You look for H3Droid !

Hi there,
I have this issue... I am using Orange Pi Lite and the last version of H3Droid. All good, but i want to use also my external otg2ethernet so my connection will be faster. When i plug it, it shows that Ethernet is available but when i click on DHCP no IP is coming, so basically the DHCP Client is not communicating with that port. What is possible to be done? The otg2ethernet is working for sure because when i go to Libreelec is working like a charm.

Help guys!

@rakovm, usbnet standard is supported and tested,  i don't know about otg2ethernet but if it is the same you may want "ifconfig eth0 arp up" from /data/rc.local or root shell (via ssh/adb/uart )
These aren't the Droids you're looking for. . .You look for H3Droid !

Wow i think otg2ethernet is my terminology and basically its microUSB to ethernet adapter that i am plugging into the OTG port. I will try that command when i come back home and will let you know.

Hi,

Currently unsupported is powering off the board.
Is there any sort of sleep or standby functionality to reduce the power consumption?

If not, then when do you estimate to support powering off?

Thank you in advance!

Addition: I joined the chat at Freenode and KotCzarny replied really quickly:
yes. in 1.3.3

Hi guys,
Yesterday night i managed to install the H3Droid 1.3.3 after the post of kotcza. Actually i already had 1.3.2 on another SD but i forgot how to install it .

Anyway... i used class 10 SD card that worked perfectly but i dont know why 1.3.3 was really laggy and slow for me. 1.3.2 has a lot higher performance than 1.3.3 . I was checking into the settings but everything seemed normal.
