I have been using Home assistant OS (HASS OS) for sometime on my spare RPI3B+ as HASS OS was officially supported for RPI.
Now that it is becoming slow and my use case have expanded, I decided to try to port HASS OS for Khadas Vim1.
I used Odroid C2 image for reference and made changes to the existing C2 image with Khadas Vim1 support.
I present to you a test Image of HASS OS for Vim1.
Just keep boot partition in sdcard while removing all the other partition on sd card, then it should boot from sdcard and then load the rest from usb-stick/ssd/ if it have the needed configs enabled on kernel.
The above is theoritically correct and should work but not tested.
You can also just flash mainline uboot from Khadas source on sd card an have OS on usb stick and then check logs in uart to see if it boots fine.
Je viens d’installer la dernière image de home assistant mais je ne sais pas comment ajouter les addons. je pense qu’il faut les gérer au travers de conteneurs mais je n’ai pas la connexion en ssh avec putty.
I am struggling with the installation of Home Assistant on Khadas VIM1 basic.
Some information before explaining the encountered issues:
I have home assistant already working on Raspberry pi 3B+ but I would like to have a backup solution in case of issue with the board so I decided to try Khadas
I followed the steps described in the blog created by @spikerguy (thanks a lot for your work)
I installed HA OS from the blog
Khadas board spec: CPU Soc Amlogic S905X Quad Core Arm Cortex-A53 SBC, MCU Programmable, WiFi et RTC intégré, Multi-OS,Support Android 7.1 / 9.0 (2+8Go)
Issue n°1, Khadas board was booting android, after some research I figured out that the board was booting on eMMC and not on the SD card. Work around : pushing 3 times in less than 2 seconds on the function button and SD card is read. Not convenient in case of electrical blackout but I will investigate later. => not solved yet but not blocking
Issue n°2, I can’t connect to HA, when I look into the log connecting a HDMI cable I see issues with wifi and bluetooth. Login does not seem to work properly as my screen differs from the screen shared at the beginning of this topic. Any clue on what I should try to make it works ? I am a bit lost…
