RockPro64 Stopped working
#1
I have a rockpro64 that went tits up. I read that Armbian should be tried to see if the hardware is any good. I can't get armbian to boot. When it installs I see an error among all the text "direct firmware load for rockchip/dptx.bin failed with error -2", so I presume the HW has failed?

Have you tried something other than armbian? Nothing about that error message says hardware failure to me.

There are official Debian images from Debian themselves, I recommend you try those.

I have only tried: Armbian_5.75_Rockpro64_Debian_stretch_default_4.4.174_desktop
It takes a long time to do it's initial install because of all the timeouts, one presumes. When it finishes it powers off.

That seems like quite an old image based on a BSP kernel. Please try a mainline kernel based one: https://deb.debian.org/debian/dists/bull...rd-images/

See https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/ROCKPro64_S..._Installer for instructions and the troubleshooting link regarding GPU.

In general, you do not need to use BSP kernels anymore for ROCKPro64.

I don't know what that means.
I downloaded the Rock64pro image from the site you suggested.
It fails too. As it tries to retrieve a file, it fails with a "Recount try exceeded" and then moves on to the next file which fails the same way. Eventually you get a script error and => as the last characters
I had a wireless keyboard dongle plugged in on the first test, but not the second.
Same error pattern from each test.

Is this using the eMMC or using a  SD card? I've had varied success with Armbian images on various RK3399 boards (listed as supported). I can at least confirm that FreeBSD's 13.1-RELEASE image booting off a SD card works fine (you might run into boot issues you have a 4K monitor connected however). Serial is set to primary boot console so you'll only see partial output of the boot processing using a monitor.
