Quartz64 Model-A 8GB board boot error
#1
Hello. I've got my Quartz64 A 8GB today and tried to boot with several Linux-based and Android images. I've tried both mmc and emmc boot with the same result:

```
DDR Version V1.07 20210419
ln
ddrconfig:7
DTT cs0 error
L3952:reinit fail
LPDDR4X, 324MHz
error
ERR
```

Any suggestions what this failure is meaning?

Does it expected at the moment for this board version?

Do you have the BAT_OFF jumper in place?

Tried both on/off with the same result.

The jumper should be in place, i.e. the "off" position.

Can you try booting a non-Android image? Try the pgwipeout CI image: https://gitlab.com/pgwipeout/quartz64_ci...s/download

Unzip it, flash rk3566-quartz64-a.dtb.img.xz, e.g. as follows (with /dev/sdx being whatever your SD card or eMMC module is.

Code:
sudo -i
cd /path/to/artifacts
xzcat rk3566-quartz64-a.dtb.img.xz > /dev/sdx

Once it finishes, try to boot it with UART attached. You should get an u-boot menu that allows you to boot a Debian installer. Just try booting into it, if it works we know the board's good. It's possible that whatever Android images you're using are not actually using recent enough firmware for the board. (It looks like memory training is failing?)

Thanks for your suggestion. However I've tried some of the recent versions images as well: crux, slackware, Manjaro.
With `pgwipeout` I have a bit different error:
Code:
    DDR Version V1.10 20210810
    ln
    unknown device
    error
    ERR
I suppose you have a chance to test it with 8GB version successfully before?
PS My device has following marks: Quartz64-3566-V2.0 from 2021-04-27

Yes, I'm using the 8G version. Same date code as well.
