Co-Pine-ON, Boot co-processor assistant
Hi, just want to share a little idea (already tested) that I am using to 'assist' my Pine64+ board to boot...

My Pine64 has some kind of boot problem, it only run normally somewhere around 30% of the time (out of 10 times, only 3 boot is successful), perhaps a little more or little less...

Unable to understand the problem to try a correction, I had the idea of putting a microcontroller to issue a hardware-reset to the Pine64, every time that the Pine does not boot normally...

Well, the first prototype is working, need some fine tunning and improvements but the overall idea works...

For the moment, this is the only "stable" way I found to solve the boot issue I am having with my Pine64, and since I want to test/use/learn more this 64bit hardware with 64bit OS, it will be the *solution* for while...

The whole thing is documented and all the files are available:

GitHub files:

Not a really good solution for people who have the same problem but can help depending on the reasons and goals in mind...

Regards all,
