  1. Hi Werner, I just collected output using UART for a successful and unsuccessful boot. I can't see anything that really sticks out, other than one gets stuck on 'starting kernel...', is there any way I can delay the booting of the SSD? Well I've tried a bunch of different USB type c cables and 2 x 5V 3A & 2 x 5V 2A adapters. So I can't help but feel there's a bug. As if it actually boots, it's fine from then on. There may be a power spike draw on boot or something. Successful boot: Unsuccessful boot:
  2. Hi everyone, After migrating to a nvme ssd using the recommended official adapters, I've run into this issue. (Been really frustrating not been able to boot reliably, replug it until it works) Before I migrated, if I went fdisk -l it would start flashing and always show up. It's only when booting, it seems to be unable to boot/stay on most of the time. 1) I put power into pi. 2) The ssd blinks, if it stops blinking, it didn't boot. If it keeps blinking success. Is there a way to delay mounting the ssd or better debug this issue?
  3. There's no way to change the device's target without a reinstall? Even if you compile the kernel and install the linux-firmware?
  4. I've installed the OPI 4 image awhile ago for my PI as that was the only one available. I've since installed just the kernel targeting this model. Is there a way I can ensure future kernel updates will look for the lts model? Thank you. (Also the topic tags are missing the 4lts model as of this moment)
  5. I'm trying to replicate a flash drive using an ISO file. My system is running the latest Ubuntu next kernel. Here is how I am mounting an ISO: # Mount sudo modprobe g_mass_storage file=/home/pi/mini.iso # Remove sudo rmmod g_mass_storage Here are the two types of results I get from three different images. (Ubuntu net install, Need for speed 2 iso, custom made iso) It's definitely being detected. However it's appearing as either empty partitions or unallocated.
  6. Thank you. It works now that I've connected TX <-> RX & RX <-> TX. That's incredibly embarrassing. None of the SOC guides I followed mentioned which pins to link.
  7. Hi, I'm new to the Armbian/Alt PI scene, coming from a RPI Zero W. I'm needing to interact with my PI using a CH340G (is it compatible) USB to TTL dongle. I've also trjed a CH351A device, put it into UART mode. Unfortunately, I get nothing from the PI. Despite using the primary RX/TX pins. I've also tried enabling all of the UART pins using armbian-config, and using another set of pins - to no avail. Please view my setup below. I've run out of ideas of where I'm going wrong. I've tried these images: Armbian_5.90_Nanopineo2_Debian_buster_next_4.19.57 Armbian_5.90_Orangepione_Ubuntu_bionic_next_4.19.57 Reference: http://linux-sunxi.org/File:Orange_Pi_One_UART.jpg
