Unofficial Volumio 3 on Odroid boards (C4/ N2/ N2+/ M1S)

Yes, and that won’t change for the reason you mentioned.
Switching to k6 will only occur when an alternative boot button method has been implemented.

@Wheaten i dropped the question at HK as they were calling for a C4 kernel 6.6.y debugging party.
No answer yet.

I am patient.
Volumio runs OK on the K4.9. Till now I’ve no need for a 6.x kernel (want it though to stay current and updated), but for Volumio the current is working.

Thanks for the builds @gkkpch,
i tried the 3.611 on C4@eMMC and lineout.
Have had two issues:

Spotify plugin can not be installed.

All versions 4.0.4 and down to 4.0.1 can’t be installed.
Spotify can not be uninstalled on plugin-manager. Install process on FusionDSP fails then as well. Reboot didn’t help.
After re-flash of eMMC it was possible to install FusionDSP as first step. Installation of Spotify fails same way.
Is there some workaround for that?

The volume level compared to “HiFiBerry DAC+ Zero(on Moode)” is only a half.

I searched for a specs of C4s Lineout. What is the vRMS of C4 lineout?
Is that a settings issue or hardware design issue with volume level?

Has somebody compared the quality C4 vs N2+ vs some HifyBerry(Master clocked)?

Thanks Gé for the M1S image.
Started to test today and it’s a marvelous piece of Hardware.
Volumio runs smooth and performs better then the rPi4, even thought it runs on a RK3566.
The internal sound, via SPDIF is more then acceptable.

New version 3.629 available, sorry that it took a bit longer to update here.
See Opening Post

Thanks Gé

image Volumio-3.629-2024-02-24-odroidm1s is working very well as I already had it running for while.
Also image Volumio-3.629-2024-02-24-odroidn2 seems to work fine.

Only one thing found with the N2 v3.629 vs the rPi version. I need to add the option vers=3.0 again to a CIFS mount in order to mount it. This was corrected with the rPi version.

Error during creating the mount

first row with vers=3.0
2nd without

Correct, but there is nothing I can do at the moment, Odroid images are still using an old 4.9 kernel, but this is on the radar.
For N2 there is an experimental image using kernel 6.1, but lacks the power on/off as you have noticed.
I have a fix, but it has not been integrated yet. Expect it with the bookworm version.
For the C4 this also exists, but was never published because of lacking odroid HiFi hat drivers.
This will be fixed as well, also expect this with the bookworm version.

Ok, it’s not a show stopper. Just mentioning it as part of the testing.
So far the rest seems all OK.

Was just to let you know what the kernel situation is.
Once we have 6.1 (or 6.6, not sure yet), support for C4 and N2 is secured over a long period.

Version 3.703 is available for OTA updaters, direct download links:
