Guys! I have two of the original Pine64+ boards from the kickstarter (with LCD) and tried to launch the latest armbian image on them. Both of them freezes in u-boot after it tries to evaluate USB connections...
Rather strange, they work well with the ancient original images.

That [nul] character comes randomly at the first or second USB scanning attempt. PSU is big enough (3A) and is powered via the header pins.
