As of April 2020 Debian have a ROCKPro64 image available. See forum thread here.

Instructions for creating a bootable image are in the README file on the Debian website, as at June 2020 these were in short

  • Download: firmware.rockpro64-rk3399.img.gz
  • Download: partition.img.gz
  • Create the disk image:
    • For Linux: zcat firmware.rockpro64-rk3399.img.gz partition.img.gz > complete_image.img
    • For Mac: gzcat firmware.rockpro64-rk3399.img.gz partition.img.gz > complete_image.img
  • Write the image to your boot device:
    • For Linux: dd if=complete_image.img of=your_chosen_boot_device bs=4M
    • For Mac: dd if=complete_image.img of=your_chosen_boot_device bs=4m

What you now have is the official Debian installer that will boot and run on your ROCKPro64. You will need an Ethernet connection and to answer the various installer questions/options.

Forum thread concerning these releases can be found here

A number of release versions are available based on either Ubuntu or Debian. In addition releases are available that are stable (based on a 4.4 kernel which has all the RockChip patches in it) or pre-releases (based on the latest linux kernel). An overview of the philosophy is on this GitHub page.

Clicking through on any chosen release header (or expanding the "assets" section under the Changelog) will provide options to download many images suitable for the ROCKPro64 as well as others suitable for other devices such as the Rock64 and PinebookPro - please read the download filenames carefully to choose precisely the image you desire.

Retro Arena Community Build Image [microSD / eMMC Boot] [Beta 0.0.8]

  • This is a BETA and therefore is not updatable nor supported however bugs or issues are appreciated to be identified and shared via the issues tab on our GitHub so that we can address them in the future. The Roshambo Case support is baked in with one major caveat due to kernel limitation: You can power the unit off by the POWER switch and the RESET button works 100% however to power the unit on you will need to manually plug/unplug the power cord. This limitation will not be present in future releases.
