cubieboard2 can boot only from 4.xx kernel !?


Recommended Posts

Hello, i have cubieboard2. This board boots and runs  successfully with Armbian-5.xx-Cubieboard-Debian(Ubuntu)-xx-4.xx.xx image, but i have NO success to boot

and run any Armbian_5.xx_Cubieboard2_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.xxx_desktop.img image. Except, that i was able to boot and run Armbian_5.38_Cubieboard2_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113 image once and it worked for few hours, i was able to install some SW.  After power up  in the morning cb2 boots until kernel starts, show some flickering colorfull screen  and in a second red power led is off and board is not showing any progress. HDMI display says no signal.

Maybe someone has the same problem ? So to make it short: any 4.xx.xxx kernel is loading and board is alive, any 3.4.xxx kernel hangs after Starting kernel.

We recently dropped support for Cubieboard 2 since none of the crew has this board and no owner of those board didn't join as a board maintainer. On the theoretical base, it is extremely difficult to "see" if board boots :)
