VIM1S and home assistant supervisor

Im running the ubuntu image from the oowoow installer. I’m trying to find a way to run home assistant with supervisor mode to have add-ons for example. Does anyone know how i can achieve that on the vim1S ?

I am also interested in your question. I was able to install HA core but it lacks capabilities… I would like to know, in particular, if the VIM1s is compatible with KVM to circumvent the problem via Docker.
Thanks for any help which will be appreciated.
Have a nice day.

Hello @yoann54 @solex94

We are working on HA supports on VIM1S now, but need some time.


what is HA supervisor mode ?

Hello, I tried to install Home Assistant via Docker on my VIM1S, but the docker-ce package crashes during installation.
Has anyone managed to install Docker on the VIM1S?

Could you provide the crash logs? please follow up.

Hi @Lionnel

Execute the following command to solve this problem.

$ sudo modprobe overlay
$ sudo modprobe nft_chain_nat
$ sudo modprobe nft_counter
$ sudo modprobe nft_compat
$ sudo modprobe nf_tables

Install Docker Reference Documents on VIM1S.

you need also theese commands:

sudo apt --fix-missing update

sudo apt-get update --fix-missing

sudo apt-get install jq wget curl avahi-daemon udisks2 libglib2.0-bin network-manager dbus apparmor -y

and… to set permanent modprobe command after reboot use this command by shell

sudo echo -e “\noverlay\nnft_chain_nat\nnft_counter\nnft_compat\nnf_tables\n” >> /etc/modules-load.d/modules.conf

then you see graphical windows to choice your preferred platform where install homeassistant supervised: I selected : khadas VIM3
and finally homeassistant started!!!

As you can see in this photo

You can follow also complete guide here:

I’m having the same problem - unable to install Home assistant supervised on UBUNTU 22.04.1 LTS - cause it is not supported by the official home assistant supervised installer

I followed this instructions first Installing Home assistant supervised on UBUNTU 22.04 LTS
When I met docker-ce error i followed this solve Docker IPTABLES Error

but - installer doesn’t support UBUNTU 22.04 LTS

I’dont have GUI ont my ubuntu server and i don’t really understand what i have to do with your github and your instructions @pappicio
Can you help ?

If I understand how to dump system with homeassistant and reuse it on EMMC, I can share the image file… for now, I have to study about

this is my HOMEASSISTANT SUPERVISED image to put on FAT32 formatted usb key and copy to emmc by OOWAW tool

connect to your LAN by cable and from chrome browser (or firefox, or edge) write:


and you can see homeassistant login page (1st login, you have to choice new username and confirm twice your new password)

or by a pc connected to your LAN, write in dos command:

ping vim1s

and you can see vim1s board IP

you have 2 system (shell) users:
root with password: root
pi with password: pi

all system is in Italian Language, but you can choice different for HomeAssistant
and system by shell using armbian-config tool (sudo armbian-config)


Oh wow that’s nice i think the khadas team could add a similar image in the installer that would be great. Thanks for your help @pappicio

Hello, the problem came from Iptables. I solved it with these commands:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install ca-certificates curl gnupg lsb-release
$ sudo mkdir -p /etc/apt/keyrings
$ curl -fsSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /etc/apt/keyrings/docker.gpg
$ echo “deb [arch=$(dpkg --print-architecture) signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/docker.gpg] Index of linux/ubuntu/ $(lsb_release -cs) stable” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null
$ sudo apt-get update
$ update-alternatives --set iptables /usr/sbin/iptables-legacy
$ sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli docker-compose-plugin
$ sudo docker pull homeassistant/home-assistant
Thank you all

Hi Bredin76,
This command solved your problem : $ update-alternatives --set iptables /usr/sbin/iptables-legacy

Actually i used directly 2 lines - This one and the same one with ip6tables like i say in my post
Before this 2 lines - Docker Hello world is no running - after Hello world is ok.

then I succeed to have an Home assistant supervised working on DEBIAN Buster BUT i had to use homeassistant-supervised.deb in 1.2.0 cause since 1.3 you have to be on DEBIAN Bulleye => so Unhealthy installation

Next - i tried to update this debian buster, with home assistant supervised installed, using the first part of this tutorialBUT VIM1S falls in bootloop

I succeed to update a frash Buster installation in Bullseye BUT was unable to install home assistant supervised ( I tired 1.4.1 Script without success)…

I will try a new way by this week or the @pappicio .img


Hello, i tried to install this image but OOWOW does not detect it…
I tried by USB/FAT32 and SD card , the supports are detected but oowow dont find any image file :roll_eyes:

the image works, you have to decompress the file and put it on the usb key using the balena etcher software. owoo will see it next :wink:

but… if I remember well, only have to copy .img.zst (as you download it, without decompress it) file into a FAT32 microsd insert and start oowow system, then exploring into folders, you can find (as you do with online image files!) and install this image… I did this operations… if I remember well, not exploded it as ready to go system on sdcard, maybe is another way to do.

hi there, tried the image but getting these

can you fix these?
sorry i´m a newbie here
