Cannot boot from SD cards any longer.
(04-15-2021, 03:24 PM)MadHopsMan Wrote: Not sure what I'm doing wrong here but I cannot boot from the SD Card any longer.  I tried multiple cards and multiple images.  I can't even boot off of jumpdrive installed on SD cards to reflash eMMC.  So now I'm stuck with a dud.  My unlock password is not working and I can't reload a new image on the eMMC or boot to an alternate image from SD.  Anyone else run in to this problem or have any ideas on how to get it working again?

More info: I can get it to boot in to the default OS and access it BEFORE the screenlock kicks on.  While in this mode, when I run lsblk from terminal, I CAN indeed see the SD Storage card here so I's not like it's's just that I can't boot off of any images any longer.
Are you sure you're using the correct jumpdrive? There are three of them - 2g, 3g pinephone, and pinetab version. Maybe you have a model with the dram clockspeed issue? Lower it, and you may get a boot. It's in the forum.
