Flashed SPI, able to ping RP64 but not boot from sdcard/usb
#1
Hi

I am flashed the SPI with sigmaris's SPI, and I was unable to boot. So I used the erase image, and it still wouldn't boot. I'm expected my uart today, so I can view whats' going on.

However, I was wondering why it was letting me ping but not ssh. I have imaged a sata ssd with TwisterOS, and also on an sdcard, and neither boots. I think the SPI was flashed correctly (i'm probably wrong) so I am unsure why nothing is booting.

Earlier I was unable to ping at all, until I went through flashing again. So I probably skipped a step I imagine and now I've maybe bricked the rp64?

Thanks for any guidance

Fortunately I have a 2nd rp64, so I am hoping I waiting on this before I go through the hell of it again with the 2nd one

EDIT: So I made an image from Armbian, and it boots from SDCard, but at the armbian logo it is perpetually loading.  So some progress, but not sure how to move from there

Hi korefuji and welcome,
  normally it is always possible to erase the spi flash or at least disable it. Fortunately I always succeeded to erase it when needed. If you are able to ping, this means that the device has booted successfully (self evident !) - but in case ... check that you ping the appropriate machine. The problem with ssh may come from :
- a distribution without ssh daemon (rare)
- a firewall of the client from which exec ssh that do not authorize the ssh

You may try to erase again the spi.
You need to flash the u-boot into the spi for sata to boot.

Armbian always worked for me (emmc / sd / nvme / netboot).

Best luck.
