Buster images are missing symlik to boot.ini

Recommended Posts


My board is Odroid HC1
Using balenaEtcher under Windows 10 I have instaled today Armbian_20.05.7_Odroidxu4_buster_current_5.4.50_minimal.img.xz and also was trying before Armbian_20.05.7_Odroidxu4_buster_legacy_4.14.187.img.xz.
On both images I wanted to increase verbosity to 7 to see in serial console boot process. 

Changes in boot.ini are not used during boot until symlink /boot.ini is created which point to /boot/boot.ini

Until this is done you will se uboot error that script /boot.ini is not found.


Please add this symlink to images for XU4/HC1.


Second issue is that editing armbianEnv.txt is not overwriting values in boot.ini. I have added new line verbosity=7 and it has no effect. Only editing boot.ini is changing boot behaviour.

Everything is correct, just script loading is probing one after another since different configuration are possible ... without boot.ini loaded, you can't boot.
