I've put together Beelink's X2 v205k4 image, and modified it specifically for Orange Pi-PC.
Mods:
  • Superceleron's Kodi (ripped from Superceleron's V1.2)
  • Added Amazon Underground, ES File Explorer, AdAway, Mobdro
  • Cleaned up Dragonware
  • Removed firmware OTA update apps
  • Changed DVFS, THS and cooler to bronco's settings, and applied to boot0 and u-boot (seems to have a much better thermal performance - you may not need heat sink).

Download from mega:

It was inspired by V1.1 of Superceleron's mod, which was based on v202k4, and the VPN was not working. .

I don't promise this is going to work for you. Tester beware. I tried it once and it seemed to work: all USB ports, IR port, and Ethernet.

Edit 1:Upstream changes:
From v202k4 to v203k4 - for bug vpn connect fail on 202k4.Auto power on without requirement pressing button after power be inserted.
From v203k4 to v204k4 - Update Media Libraries;Fix the Issue that some device's "spdif not active after system reboot;Add 360XBOX support
From v204k4 to v205k5 - No information.

Edit 2:Busybox, nano and bash don't seem to work. Removed and reuploaded.

Edit 3ut back busybox to fix init.d support. Removed and reuploaded.
Edit 4: Rebased on v205k4. Completely repacked manually without using DragonFace.
Edit 5: Correcting THS values. Thanks cbm80.

Thank you for your work.

Can you try to see if passthrough works within Kodi in this ROM?
Do you have noises or video stuttering if passthrough is enabled?

Sorry, runnerway, I have never tested Kodi's passthrough. This is the same Kodi as in the the SC_V1.1 and so if passthrough did not work then, it is not likely to work now.

Edit: Come to think of it, the situation could have improved, even though the CPU clock is lowered now. In the original DVFS and Cooler settings, if the CPU is overheated, the thermal throttling shuts down some cores (stuttering is a sign of that). The new settings would lower the frequency to reduce heat instead, and so even though it slowed down a bit, multitasking should still be smooth. Too bad my set up doesn't allow me to test it quickly and I'm going on the road in the next few days. So if someone tests this, please report back the performance. Mine OrangePi PC has only a small heatsink and it is enclosed in a small case, the idle temperature is about 56 degree Celcius, and Kodi can push it to about 80-84 degrees.

No, it's not working for me. I have Orange-Pi PC. I only can see a red rectangle in the middle of screen with some artifacts in the upper side of the screen.

Green led stays on all the time and the red led blinks.

Hmm... nobitakun, does your TV/Monitor support 720P? I think the default display mode is 720P - 60Hz. But the red led should not blink. Something is not right.

The v204k4 ROM I based on is taken from a post on Freaktab:

You may try and see whether the original Beelink image boot up. The only setting changes I introduced were that of CPU thermal throttling adjustment (with minor undervolting) by bronco and increased TCP buffers by Superceleron. So if you can run the original Beelink v204k4, then it must be your board doesn't like the slight undervolting.

Ok, I'm going to try the original Beelink image, I hope it works so it is nothing serious.

Thank you!

Bad news, it is not working either. With the original one I get a screen full of artifacts, like an old TV trying to get tunned with those snow pixels, but colored ones.

The lights stay the same as in your image. Please, if anybody has the Orange-PI PC and solved it, I would want to know, since I tried a couple of microSD cards just in case that was the problem but no avail.

Thank you for your effort!

Well done for undervolting, it's what's needed for th OPi to keep the temperature down. Will download & give it a go.

nobitakun something is wrong with your board or the sd card.What sd cards did you try.Original Beelink works great.I am going to try this one too, though i am expecting a little performance loss from the original one.Still its great if you don't want to use heatsink or fan.
