Can't boot headless after running update_uboot.sh
#1
Hello,

I've got a Pine64 2GB from a friend, with the original USB power supply. I've flashed Linux onto a quality SD card using Etcher on Linux.

Pine64 boots fine, I can login with SSH and do all the things I want to do. I'm running headless.

If I run the update_uboot.sh script, then I can no longer boot headless. I've tested the Debian and Xenial Base images. I don't have a serial console, so I can't see if there are any boot messages. All I can tell is that I can no longer connect via SSH, and it doesn't appear in my router's list of connected devices. If I connect a monitor before powering up it boots just fine.

Don't update;

... yes, I'm serious.   Or, like my old professor used to say, "If it ain't broke, fix it until it is" !

... my dad used to say, " If you make a mess, clean it up;  If you spill something, wipe it up;  If you break something, fix it;  if you can't fix it, then call somebody who can, and If it ain't broke, don't fix it"


Updates on these SBC(s) do more harm than good;  reload it, and this time, don't update it.

Thanks. I'll get on with setting up my server, then.
