Our Linux Starter Kit for N2+ has what
you need to get started in one kit
along with a printed guide!

The ODROID-N2+ is a speed upgrade to the original ODROID-N2 that is even more powerful, more stable, and faster performing than the N1. The main CPU of the N2+ is based on big.LITTLE architecture which integrates a quad-core ARM Cortex-A73 CPU cluster and a dual core Cortex-A53 cluster with a new generation Mali-G52 GPU. Thanks to the modern 12nm silicon technology and a revised silicon design of the S922X SoC, the A73 cores run at 2.2GHz (formerly 1.8GHz on the N2) without thermal throttling at normal room temperatures using the stock metal-housing heatsink allowing for a robust and quiet computer. The CPU's multi-core performance is around 22% faster than the original N2. The N2+’s DDR4 RAM runs at 1320Mhz. The large metal housing heatsink is designed to optimize the CPU and RAM heat dissipation and minimize throttling. The CPU is placed on the bottom side of the PCB to establish improved thermal characteristics.

The manufacturer tested over 300 samples of the revised ODROID-N2+ boards overclocked to 2.4GHz and did not experience any problems with them, resulting in a 33% clock frequency improvement over the original N2. However, overclocking to 2.4GHz is not guaranteed due to the SoC not being certified for that speed.

A cooling fan may be required to prevent “throttling” due to the SoC temperature if the computing load is continuously high at 2.4Ghz clock speed and the ambient temperature is 35°C (95°F) or higher.

Additionally, the onboard RTC backup battery source was changed to a widely available bare CR2032 coin cell instead of a proprietary one. You can keep the time over several years once a coin battery is installed.

 eMMC Note from Customer

I was able to extend the partition, and now I can see all the space. Just in case anyone else having the same issue: 
1. Resize the partition with "cfdisk /dev/mmcblk0"
2. Force disk check "touch /forcefsck" 
3. Reboot "init 6"
4. Resize the disk "resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2"
Thank you Moshe!!

Get 15V 4A power supply!

The recommended 12V 2A power supply is under powered for the N2+. My board just blinked RED with it. My board worked correctly when I went to the 15V 4A power supply (Stead RED; blinking BLUE), and I was able to boot up.

Odroid N2+ Thumbs Up

Not being an IT guy, I bought this board based on the fact it supported open source software and had the power to stream the newer standards for video. The cool product name was an added bonus.

I've installed Coreelec and it has breathed new life into my smart tv whose apps only seem to mange anemic versions of 720p. I'm still learning the Coreelec interface, so I imagine the experience will only get better.

I'm not running a fan, so the temperatures are higher than what I like. I'm going to adjust frequencies in the boot file, to see if that lowers temps a bit. I've had good success doing so with my graphics card on my desktop.

I'll be experimenting with Armbian and Vivaldi in the future, to surf the web for my favorite sites, and might even work up to doing a dual boot with Coreelec.

All in all, I'm very happy with the product and great customer service, including some custom AmeriDroid guitar picks. Perhaps for my next major purchase I'll demand some M&Ms with the brown ones removed.;-)

Increadible power at a very good price!

I don't have room here to list the amount of fun programs and projects I have doing with this wonderful bit of tech. It can run sooo many different OS's, with GPU acceleration. I can run Dolphin emu Gamecube games and full speed in Vulkan. I can run Ubuntu with full desktop GPU acceleration. The single thread sysbench score BEATS my very efficient Ryzen 5 3600, and the 6 thread run comes close, amazing!!!! Barely gets warm under heavy load, gets EXTREME scores in AES encryption on Geekbench5. It can run multiple Docker containers without a care. I am certain 2 or 3 of these in a cluster would out compile most desktop cpu's until you get into the over $1000 ones. The community on the forums is welcoming and helpful, I love that. All I can say is there is not another sbc like it for the money that can do everything this does. Buy at least one and you will get hooked like me!!!

Great desktop replacement and HTPC

I'm running my N2+ with Manjaro KDE Plasma as a desktop system. I mainly use it for browsing and standard desktop tasks. I'm currently using Firefox 74.0 64-bit as my main browser, and it works well for everything I've thrown at it. Manjaro KDE Plasma looks really nice with the dark theme.

I'm running the 2GB version of the N2+ with 2GB swap configured running off a 32GB eMMC, and it operates smoothly and is very reliable. I keep the system on 24/7 and it has been running non-stop since I finished configuring it weeks ago. I usually have 4 Firefox windows with a total of 8 tabs running with no problems.

I have another 2GB N2+ at home running my 55 inch 4K TV, also running off an eMMC. On that one, I'm running Android 9, and the family uses it with the Rii K22 keyboard sold on ameriDroid to watch Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube, HDHomeRun, and more, and they use other Android apps to listen to music. In addition, it can also be used as a large browser that the whole family can sit around while we dream about future vacations, etc. We also use it with a USB webcam for Zoom meetings. That system is also very reliable and smooth.
