Tinkerboard freezes when doing simple things

Quote:You mean power via GPIO pins, right?

Yes.

Quote:In any case, I've heard TB-S and later versions of TB solved the mUSB power issue. Only the orig. TB (2017) has the mUSB power issue, right?

You need to change connector.

Its a fatal hw design failure (marketing people deciding about design) which can't be fixed. Only Rpi could mitigate this problem since Linux runs inside RTOS. That ThreadX RTOS - in case power drop was too high - started to throttle and killing cpu cores. Beyond Linux. Such hack is not possible with this chip.

Law of physics, ohm law can't be fixed.

Usually this is good enough, yes. I was doing some tests and most of my mUSB cables are not sufficient for powering Tinkerboard. Only a few good cables can.
Armbian. Lightweight Debian Stretch or Ubuntu Bionic for Tinker Board.

I ran the Armbian TB for about 48 hours, mostly on idle, with Chromium browser, performing various tasks and even playing some video (very poor). Also had Htop running as a monitor. Connected to it was the mouse, keyboard, and the 3.5" HD 2tb standard mechanical drive with its own 12v adapter.
