  1. Hi Craz_tyle, yes I disabled just about everything there. It turned out to be a hardware issue. The board seems to have a part broken off between the CPU and header and there is also some solder splatter need the header as well. I tried on a new board and all is well.
  2. Sorry, I mistyped the native commands. This is what I actually tried: echo 163 > /sys/class/gpio/export echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio163/direction echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio163/vaue cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio163/value This didn't work either as a got a 0 back from the value even though I set it to 1
  3. Calling on GPIO experts.... This one has me perplexed. I can control most of the the other GPIO pins with Tinker's version of gpio from the shell. However, physical pin 18 (GPIO5B3) doesn't seem to work completely. I need to set it to an output and drive it to 1. I've tried with the latest TinkerOS (4.4.132+) and with Armbian Buster for the Tinker Board S. When it first boots up, a "gpio readall" shows that pin 18 is SERL. First, I change the mode to output: gpio mode 5 out I can verify this with another "gpio readall". It now shows that pin 18 is OUT I then try to set the value to 1 with gpio write 5 1 The pin never goes high and I verified this with a multimeter. For grins, I tried the same test with pin 16 (GPIO5B2) and setting it to OUT with a value of 1 does work. So I went native and did: echo export 163 > /sys/class/gpio echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio163 echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio163 cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio163 This didn't work either. I checked the /boot/hw_intf.conf to see if I was fighting an overlay and I had the default that comes with the TinkerOS (uart1/4 on, uart2/3 off, i2c1/4 on, spi0 off, spi2 on, etc). I don't have any applications running that might interfere (I don't think) and no hats are plugged in. This problem persists with two different OSs as well. What am I missing? Hopefully something simple I've overlooked...
