Pine64 LTS - DOA
#1
Hello -

I recently purchased a Pine64 LTS, but it does not boot.  The green power light comes on, but that is it.  I have two others from the kickstarter campaign, and a third board for a research project.

Any ideas how going about getting as replacement?

Thanks
Harry

What image did you use to test? Any output on the serial console?

I am using Fedora 24.  It is the same image on my other two Pine 64s.  However, nothing comes up on the console.  The green power light is lit, but that is about it.

Ah! The Pine A64 images are not compatible with with the LTS. Look at the SOPine section on the WiKi. You can, however, adapt all Pine A64 images to use on the LTS.

Luke:
Could you elaborate on how to adapt the A64 images for use on the LTS.  I'm trying to get the LCD working on the A64-LTS using the supplied Android images.  So far nothing is working.  I wonder if one of the A64+ images that is specifically meant for the LCD couldn't be modified to get me going.

Any further information on converting an A64 to the LTS version? I have a fairly customized OS image that I'd rather not have to recreate from scratch. 

Thanks!

What kernel are you running? To convert the images you have to replace boot0/u-boot (for BSP) or spl/u-boot(for mainline) with a version built for Pine64 -LTS and put the Pine64-LTS devicetree file in the /boot directory of your image...

Code:
Linux pine64 3.10.107-pine64 #7 SMP PREEMPT Thu Jan 25 08:00:55 CET 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

So can I just extract these parts from a Pine64-LTS image on Armbian?
