  1. I just made a fresh Focal desktop build and it is working again. The GUI comes up again after a reboot now. Sorry to waste your time. Thanks, Dale
  2. Hi, I just wanted to confirm that I see the same issue on recent builds of both Focal and Buster desktops for the Cubox-i (specifically, I'm using a Hummingboard Edge). On first boot, the HDMI display comes up and prompts me to set the root password and create a new user. After doing this, the XFCE GUI comes up on the HDMI display. However, after rebooting, I see some messages from U-Boot, but then the display goes blank and stays that way.

Instead, the board will sit there and wait for SDP (serial download protocol) commands to come in over the USB OTG port. 1. Make a custom cable following instructions here. I used a 1 ohm resistor. 2. Connect the cable to the top USB port next to the ethernet port. (This is the only port with OTG funct

I decided to try the legacy image (Armbian_5.41_Cubox-i_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.14.79_desktop.img) to gain support for the hardware video decoder. However, I have been unable to get the legacy version to boot properly. Initially, the board is detected as having a rev 1.5 SOM and there is a message about not being able to find the right dtb file (imx6q-hummingboard2-som-v15.dtb). Looking under /boot/dtb ther
