Unable to boot Rock64 board


Recommended Posts

First time user here.  I got a Rock64 board and flashed Armbian_20.08.1_Rock64_focal_current_5.8.6_desktop.img using Etcher to an SD card.  When I try to boot, nothing happens.  If I examine the SD card on my Linux PC, there is only one partition on it and it appears to be a kernel image.  I assumed that the .img file would have the U-Boot partition as well.  Is there a different type of image file I should be using that would contain everything that I need to boot?  If not, how do I create such an image?

Images has everything you need to boot them and most of the images are also tested. But in case of Rock64 ... there are a few quality issues hidden behind different hardware revisions.

Try legacy kernel 4.4.y images or go this path:
