  I am a student and I am really really regretting purchasing orangepi PC & orangepi plus.
there are no straight Tutorials for settingup GPIOS,uart similar to Raspberry pi.
For some images Hdmi-dvi, does not work, ethernet does not work, usb does not work.Most of the wifi devices dont work, dont know usb to serial work or not .

I have wasted too much time on getting the board work otherwise i could have utilised the time to do more productive work or prepare for exams
the return shipping charges are more that the product cost otherwise i could have returned.there is no straight guide on compiling device drivers. most of the guides are too vauge to understand.

Well i am thinking of reselling or waiting for someone to DONATE the tutorial.
I Hope the money is not wasted, sometime in future there will be tutotials


Raspberry pi was encouraging me towards linux
Orangepi is discouraging me to use the linux.
An imortant lesson learned in life.

Search the forum!
In Ubuntu image from Loboris all usb ports work, ethernet works, 3$ usb wifi works. I am sure that in other images it should all work. From what I saw on the forum but I didn't try GPIO works, HDMI-DVI works after adding few lines in fex file.
You keep waiting for tutorial or just put some effort and search the forum.
