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.

Using Armbian_20.08_Odroidxu4_buster_legacy_4.14.191.img on my HC1 I saw the same "error" message as PawelW.  I also made the symlink /boot/boot.ini -> /boot.ini to make the message go away.

Press quickly 'Enter' twice to stop autoboot:  0
** File not found /boot.ini **
## Executing script at 43e00000


Confirming that PawelW's second issue also happened for me.  Adding verbosity=7 to armbianEnv.txt had no effect. I had to change the value in boot.ini which says "DO NOT EDIT"

Odroid uses nonstandard way which means this is an exception - they store boot script in a plain editable file ... which you can edit.
