The power LED comes on and some of the images light the heartbeat LED, but I don't get a video output, my router doesn't detect a new device on the network (I've attached it via ethernet), and I'm not able to get a response from the uart/usb interface (I'm new to uart, so I'm not 100% sure on this point). I've tried booting off a eMMC and microSD. I checked the microSD with badblocks to see if it was corrupt, but it checks out.

Any recommendations?

Please share the exact experience with each image.

I only have experience with Plebian, so the following (only) applies to that:
- Which (exact) image version/release did you download? Did you verify the download with the checksum?
- Plebian resizes the partition/filesystem on first boot, so that can take a bit longer.
- https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Quartz64#Co...Debug_UART describes how to connect the UART; it should work on Model A, so you should get output

I just tried the "Pine Quartz64 A" image from Armbian

github.com/armbian/build/releases/

There was no HDMI video output that I could detect, and my router did not detect a new device on the network (the board was plugged in directly). I tried flashing the image to the eMMC and the microSD card. There was no heartbeat LED, although I have seen that with some other images. I just tried mounting the microSD card's partition on my desktop, and there's no /var/log/messages file, which suggests that the board didn't boot up.

Although I did not attempt to connect via uart this time, when I've done so in the past I've followed that wiki's information on the pin connections. I'm using this device

circuit.rocks/usb-to-ttl-serial-cable-debug-console-cable-raspberry-pi.html

And, as per the wiki, connecting the black socket to pin 6, the green to pin 8, and the white to pin 10.
