  1. Today I installed AdvancedTomato firmware on my Router (Netgear R8000) which had stock firmware prior, and now the OrangePiZero's get an IP assinged after flash, So I guess it was a network problem all along. Thanks for your help @chwe.
  2. Edit: TLDR: 4 out of the 8 cables that were supplied with the FDTI were broken, The Orange Pi Zero RX pin is probably broken (Lamp on FDTI turns off), Ethernet problem is fixed by manually going into Armbian-Config, still not sure what is causing no ip to be assigned on boot of device. I actually did this (Thanks great debug methode!) and found out that 4 of the 8 cables that they send me didn't make good contact with the FDTI. So I selected the 4 working cables, which worked when connecting the RX and TX together on the FDTI (And echoed the input). And I think I figured out part of the issue: The RX pin of the Orange Pi Zero is broken, because I borrowed the same Orange Pi Zero from a friend of mine and with the same SD card, Power Cable and Setup it did work[ (Including login in as root). Log of Orange Pi Zero without working RX pin: (The send lamp on the FDTI stops working once I connect the cable to both ends). Log of working Orange Pi Zero: So now about the Ethernet problems, the log of the working Orange Pi Zero: However, when I went to armbian-config -> Network -> eth0 -> IP -> DHCP, it got an IP and the internet is working now on the device.
  3. Ok I don't know why, but I reflashed the image another time and got serial to work, only problem now: I can't send any commands through serial so I am unable to use the console: https://imgur.com/a/J47uyMI
  4. I tried it once again with a FT232RL that I could borrow from my father and this is the result: https://imgur.com/a/3r65JRr I am still clueless about what is going on, so any help would be really appreciated.
  5. I have tested it and this are the results: Without load: 5.14V from Usb port. With 0.5A load: 4.94V Pictures: https://imgur.com/a/v1ztud9 I also followed your guide for connecting the CP2102 USB to TTL Converter, but still was unable to produce any output from the orange pi zero. I have ordered a FT232RL Module that hopefully will work with the serial interface. If you have any other things I could try please let me know, because I really don't know what is going wrong Edit: All the steps from your tutorial: https://imgur.com/a/9IET3MF
  6. Thank you for your fast reaction, sadly I won't have much time left today to follow all your steps, but I will try to respond as quickly as possible. Yes full card (16gb), it was fully formatted by SD Card Formatter before hand. I see you are using something with a ch341 Chipset, you think this might be the problem? (That I purchased the wrong type of USB to TLL adapter?) I will try to repeat those steps 1 on 1 tomorrow, since I don't have any time left today. I sadly do not, but I do have an USB power meter, and it tells me the voltage is around 5.1V from the power cable. (And it works with both my Raspberry Pi and Other version of Armbian. Do you think it might have something to do with my network configuration? (I have a router provided by our ISP on subnet and another router with the subnet (To which the orange pi zero is connect), that something with DHCP handling is different in the new ubuntu version?)
  7. So I have been struggling with my new Orange Pi Zero the last couple of days, I tried everything but was unable to get it working. I followed all debugging steps I could find through google and through this form so i am at the end of the rode. I have tried 2 different SD cards, on which I ran h2testw 1.4 with the following result: Used 2 different power supplies, one of which is rated at 3A 5V and I use for my raspberry pi, so I know for certain this cant be the problems. I have used the following Image without problems: "Armbian_5.25_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113.img" But any new image I try gives me problems, I have tried so far: Armbian_5.59_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_bionic_next_4.14.65.img Armbian_5.59_Orangepizero_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.65.img Armbian_5.59_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113.img All burned and verified with Ether v1.4.5 without problem, but I was unable to get an IP assigned by my Router (On any of those builds above) and thus unable to login though ssh. So I ordered the following USB to TLL module from amazon but was unable to get it working (On both Windows/Ubuntu): Anpro 2 x CP2102 USB to TTL Converter This is how I wired it (According to the howto's I found in other threads: TXD -> RX, RXD -> TX, GND -> GND (As can be seen in the photos below) https://imgur.com/a/9fI10At and after that used the following command as root: screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200, which gave me no output. I also tried it on PUTTY but also no output. If i missed any debug steps please let me know because I am out of idea's.
