I’m looking to migrate from a Pi 3+ to the newly released (and very powerful) Odroid-N2: https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/odroid-n2-with-4gbyte-ram/
As I understand there is at least two ways of installing Home Assistant, either by using a hassio image made for the device (which I really don’t know which one to choose at this point) or the “install on generic Linux server”.
Which one is preferred by you guys? I just don’t want to screw this up, if I’m going to buy this Odroid-N2 I really want to make really good use of it. :slight_smile:

And if there is any guide I can follow to set it up that would be awesome. I have read about Ubuntu, docker, portainer, but I’m still kind of new into all that stuff. I’m more than willing to learn though! :smiley:

I installed Home Assistant on an XU4, going the Ubuntu route, mainly because the hassio image for the xu4 didn’t exist up to a couple of months ago. I ended up following the instructions for the generic Linux install, but if I remember right I had to download the hassio install script locally and pass the machine architecture to it on the command line (though that might have been fixed by now).

There doesn’t seem to be a home assistant build for the N2’s armv8 architecture specifically and I am not knowledgeable enough to say if another architecture build (i.e armv7 ) will install and work.

The other issue is that the hassio xu image doesn’t appear to be install on emmc only on sd card (see this topic)

That’s the problem with living on the bleeding edge. Good luck


Thanks for the info! :slight_smile:
It looks like it is possible to run Armv7 apps on Armv8 devices: https://community.arm.com/developer/ip-products/processors/f/cortex-a-forum/5535/running-armv7-binaries-on-armv8

I guess i have to do some more research before buying it though, but the N2 really looks nice so I’m hoping its possible to replace my sluggish RPi 3+ with it.

Thanks to the guys on the Odroids forum…



Installed Armbian (clean install from flash)

then ref:

Run as root (sudo su):

curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home- … io_install | bash -s – -m odroid-xu

Anybody run HASSOS 4.0 on odroid N2 ? On SD Card or on USB SSD ? I can not. No boot. Also write to SPI Petiboot Manager from Odroid but also no working… no save settings in Petiboot when i have connected SD Card with HASSOS or USB SSD with HASSOS.


I run Hass.io on Docker (with Portainer), installed on Ubuntu 18.04
Works flawlessly. Took a couple of tries though because i totally suck on Linux. :smiley:

But i can not run any OS on my Odroid N2. You use Petiboot ?

No, i used an Ubuntu 18.04 image from their site and followed their how-to: https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-n2/getting_started/os_installation_guide?redirect=1

I use an eMMC memory, no SD card or USB SSD.

I want found solution how run image HASSOS on first MicroSD and then also on USB SSD. Finally i want boot from USB SSD and on this i want use HASSOS.
Develoer add support in HASSOS 4.0 for Odroid N2 but i dont know how it run …?
