Does any operational Debian or Ubuntu image exist for OPI Zero Plus (H5 processor) ?

Both images available at download page are non working on my board - they both hang cold at final boot stage. Only Arch image can complete boot process and gets network online.
Also, OrangePI and OrangePiLibra github repositories do no have correct files to make a custom boot for this board. H5 core sources have configuration files for OPI Zero Plus 2 only, while OPI Zero Plus is incorrectly configured in H2 processor variant.

Fully operational:

... but in a testing mode, an apt update might break network driver - freeze kernel upgrades in armbian-config ... for now.

I had already found this image, but something was still wrong with it - boot also does not finish. Will check again, maybe sdcard write was incorrect.

If Armbian is not working it is highly possible that you are doing something wrong.  Have thought about that? You might be using failed/bad/countrified SD card, insufficient power supply or you used not a very resilient method of SD card writing?

There are many troubles of this kind, with different symptoms, that we have a special section. Take a look: https://forum.armbian.com/forum/31-sd-card-and-power-supply/ or one fresh example from this forum: http://www.orangepi.org/orangepi ... tid=3241&extra=

With images other than from Armbian, you will have to face a long list of other problems since they are all poor quality and come without support.

Everything might be.

SD card problem is hardly expected, as I use high-speed Transcend card (one from the recommended list, and also already checked to be working with OPI 2G-IOT, although due to non-working WiFi driver that board was thrown till better times).
Will check with higher amperage power supply. I remember USB power was not enough to make WiFi run on 2G-IOT, but even with my current adapter is was running ok.
