    U-boot tftp retry count exceeded .

    I think i might have solved my problem. I modified the path specified in the compile command. I did not get the error and something definetly happened. Boots and running.

    U-boot tftp retry count exceeded .

    So I tried a reinstall and the recompile is not working anymore. I am getting: mkimage: Can't stat /boot/boot.cmd: No such file or directory I am running the command while in the root of the sd card on which the image is etched. Tried it with Armbian_5.30_Cubox-i_Ubuntu_xenial_next_4.11.4 will try your advise of going for 4.9.5. Any idea what i am missing ?

    WOOHOO it worked, rebooted then restarted then powered down waited 10 seconds and powered up and i could login just fine. All the information i needed is in your first answer. Actually i find as a copy/paster the process is already pretty simple. Thanks man.

    Found "imx6q-cubox-i.dtb" in the dtb directory. Boot.cmd is there, found it by trying nano /boot/boot.cmd. I see it also contains the recompile command as comments, nice. I pasted the setenv fdt_file "imx6q-cubox-i.dtb" line in after autodetect including parentheses. run autodetectfdt setenv fdt_file "imx6q-cubox-i.dtb" setenv ramdisk_addr 0x14800000 I will try recompile and see what it does.

    I downloaded Armbian_5.20_Cubox-i_Debian_jessie_4.7.3 and that one boots fine. Will work my way up the list to see what works and then update the system from that point. I figured since the U-boot shows (feb 02 2017) as i assume the build date i needed at least an image from before February this year. Again thank you for your great work. update: Armbian_5.24_Cubox-i_Debian_jessie_next_4.9.5 doesn't work.

    Thank you for your quick answer, i have no idea how to do what you just said. Time to learn......... I will google what you answered and i will get there eventually but can you tell me if i have to do the recompiling on a separate computer or can i do it in the U-boot screen. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  7. Hello and first off thank you for the great resource of information and downloads. I am having problems booting up a fresh image on my cubox i 4 pro. The last time i installed an Armbian Image was in 2014 when i got this wonderful little machine and while trying upgrading my own cloud to next cloud i got a bad big block so i thought lets put a fresh image on and now its been 2 days of time outs. The Solidrun logo comes up and then i see that it can't find any images, well i have pictures so there it is. I used etcher to make the sd card. I used the official sd card formatter. New SD card is 32 GB transcend 10 speed. In my router the cubox is always appointed the same ip address. I do not understand what is happening, i will try turning off any port forwarding in my router maybe tat will stop the timeouts ? Does anyone else encounter this ? Kind regards Oliver.
