So, after all this time, now i found some spare time to try again ...
Unfortunately fedora 34 is still no go while manjaro just worked ..

Is there any chance that what they do, can be copied to fedora :D ?

I'm just a user (well, just with some general knowledge) so, without any prior
knowledge i do not know where to look ...
what can i see is that both have the meson-g12b-odroid-n2-plus.dtb but
the manjaro one is much larger...

the problem is that fedora have an config.txt and manjaro have a boot.ini
and i have no idea what is the difference and how should each be used ..

if somebody is interested to guide me i can try things on my odroid
(including cross-compilation of stuff)

Thank you!
