The Orange Pi Lite 2 is a 64-bit H6 based single board computer produced by Xunlong.

The Orange Pi Lite 2 is the older brother of Orange Pi Lite. It sports the powerful Allwinner H6 SoC. In comparison to Orange Pi Lite based on H3, this board has a Quad Core Arm Cortex-A53 cpu. The SoC is capable of 4k at 60fps with it's ARM Mali-T720 MP2 Graphics Processor.

Unlike other boards, it uses a gigabyte LPDDR3 instead of power-eater DDR3. It also comes with USB 3.0 Host, unlike it's cousin, Orange Pi One Plus. It misses the Ethernet but it's got WiFi on board which is more handy if you are using it wirelessly. It comes also with low-level interfaces such as UART, SPI ,I²C and etc.

Sunxi support

Current status

Give a brief overview of the current status of support under sunxi here.


Optional. Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE specific sunxi ROM images here. E.g. a livesuit image or some other linux image which uses linux-sunxi code. Do not put non-sunxi images here, they should live under See also. If no sunxi based images are available, this section can be removed.


Optional. Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE sunxi HW-pack specifics here. When empty, this section can be removed.


Optional. Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE sunxi BSP specifics here. When empty, this section can be removed.

Manual build

You can build things for yourself by following our Manual build howto and by choosing from the configurations available below.


Sunxi/Legacy U-Boot

Use the MANUFACTURER_DEVICE build target.

Mainline U-Boot

Mainline kernel

Use the sun50i-h6-orangepi-lite2.dts device-tree binary.

Expansion Port

The Orange Pi Lite 2 has a 26-pin, 0.1" connector (called CON12 in the schematics) with several low-speed interfaces.

Tips, Tricks, Caveats

Add MANUFACTURER DEVICE specific tips, tricks, Caveats and nice to have changes here.

FEL mode

Booting without an SD card automagically enters FEL mode.

./sunxi-fel version
AWUSBFEX soc=00001728(H6) 00000001 ver=0001 44 08 scratchpad=00007e00 00000000 00000000

The U BOOT pin on the H6 SoC is routed to test-point TP28 on it's PCB.

Device specific topic

If there are no further device specific topics to add, remove these sections.


Serial port

OrangePi Lite 2 UART pads

The UART pins are located between the USB 3.0 port and the IR receiver. They are marked as TX, RX and GND on the bottom of the PCB. Just attach some leads according to our UART Howto.
