I tried the rc9 and also got the black screen.  I then remotely logged into the router IP I had set for the Rock64 (4G).  I then used PUTTY  and a SSH tunnel.  The Rock64 had completed the boot and was running.  I then used a VNC remote after installing tightvncserver, my favorite.  The xstartup file under the .vnc folder has to be modified, but the Rock64 works well.  The best I can tell is that the black screen is caused by the inability to frequency sync with the display.  The programmers could fix this with a config.txt file where the monitor specs could be specified to sync.  I have done this on the RPi SBCs with ubuntu MATE to fill out my screen.  By all indications the Rock64 rc9 MATE version was trying to sync at 75 Hz and couldn't.  This is probably true of all the release candidates (RCs) for ubuntu MATE.

For anyone wanting the xstartup edit, it is below:

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
#x-terminal-emulator -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
#x-window-manager &
# Fix to make GNOME work
# /etc/X11/Xsession

Your fix, can the ROCK64 then use 3D acc?
