My pbp is a sleek, black, flat brick, and won't boot from any kind of media
#3
What do I do? I use the serial console to see what U-Boot is doing. If nothing, then I know I don't have a valid U-Boot.

Make sure the power is off: hold the power button for twenty seconds. Then charge overnight with a USB-C charger. This is important.

Don't try to boot from USB. Disable your eMMC. Try multiple SD-cards. Do use only micro-sd cards in the PBPs slot, don't use any kind of adaptor.
