PinePhone Beta Edition will not boot from MicroSD card
#21
Lightbulb 
Success. I compiled the fix/3gb-boot branch and it boots on 3GB and 2GB PinePhone. https://github.com/8bitgc/Jumpdrive/tree/master/test

I also broke the pin on my phone with the switch stuck closed, so that it won't boot with regular JumpDrive.
Code:

MMC: no card present

SPL: failed to boot from all boot devices
### ERROR ### Please RESET the board ###

Two failed boots with normal JumpDrive then a successful boot with the modified JumpDrive.

My first attempt was using U-Boot 2020.04, the fix\3gb-boot branch uses U-Boot 2020.07.

Glad it is working!

Thanks for the tip on the rubber boot for the proximity sensor, it was stuck to the screen, but worth checking anyway.

Do you have a serial cable that you could see what information is given when the phone attempts to boot? Also, you could make sure that the jump drive will boot in your other pinephone.

Likely you are having a different issue if the jump drive installation will not boot in your other pinephone. Maybe one of the other pins is bent in the card reader as you mentioned in the other thread. Here is what my functional card slot looks like:

I must have a similar HW issue. The Pinephone will not boot with a blank SD card or one with an image on it. I was finally able to get the modified version of Jump Drive to work so I could flash the eEMC. Any idea if this is a part that can be replaced?

You can solder the SW pin to ground and it will think there is always a card inserted. https://blog.pineph.one/2021/05/damaged-...ocket.html

Thankyou for this information and the modified jumpdrive image. My pinephone beta never booted from the SD card, and I just put it aside when an update turned off the display.
Now I am able to use my pinephone again.
