Hello everyone. I got Le Potato for christmas this year and I cannot get any images to boot. I’ve tried two different class 10 SD cards, multiple power supplies, win32DiskImages, Etcher, Pi Imager… nothing works. I’ve tried the raspbian, armbian, ubuntu, and lakka images. All I ever get are a solid red and blue light no matter what I try. As you can imagine this is extremely frustrating and disappointing. As far as I can tell I am following all of the best practices.
I can confirm that I am downloading the correct images for the aml-s905x-cc and am unzipping the images before flashing. When I put the SD card in and plug in power all I get is solid red and blue lights. Ethernet shows no activity. I have tried pressing the u-boot button, but nothing different happens.
I have a 2.5A power adapter connected and have tried others as well. I have followed the exact instructions for properly flashing and am using a Sandisk Ultra. Win32DiskImager verification fails for all images, however no other flashing tools fail verification.
Sector 8192 is the starting sector of Raspberry Pi image’s boot partition. Our Ubuntu and Raspbian image boot partition start sector is 2048. There is definitely something wrong with your MicroSD card or flashing.
Look through the message history. We get 3 complaints a day about not booting and it is either inadequate power supply, bad MicroSD card, or improper flash.
