BananaPi Zero Crashes After Update


Recommended Posts


I installed 2022-09-27-Armbian_22.11.0-trunk_jammy_edge_lubuntu_5.19.6-qt5-swap-bpi-p2z-10804MB.img on my Banana Pi Zero and it works great!  

I run sudo apt update  ,   sudo apt upgrade  ...  Hours later, time to reboot.


The board reboots and crashes..  See pic.   Hmmm can't attach pics for some reason.


First error I see on the screen says 

Failed to load '/boot/dtb/sun8i-h2-plus-bananapi-p2-zero.dtb

libfdt fdt_check_header(): FDT_ERR_BADMAGIC

No FDT memory address configured.  Please configure

the FDT address via "fdt addr <address>" command.



Then a bunch of other errors


ERROR:  Did not find a cmdline  Flattened Device Tree

Could not find a valid device tree


Script failures..


No ethernet found..







Also had some fun fixing the github public key before I was able to do apt update.

@Eddiie Found the image you mentioned on https://wiki.banana-pi.org/Banana_Pi_BPI-P2_Zero page. Seems to me a third party created image. I don't see the board config for p2 zero in Armbian/build repository, so I am not sure if we ever supported this board. Not sure why the third party image contained Armbian repository urls as that would for sure break the board on upgrade.
