Armbian Bionic on Pine A64+ black screen
#1
Exclamation 
I tried to flash the latest Armbian (Armbian_5.50.180630_Pine64_Ubuntu_bionic_dev_4.17.3) on my A64+. When starting I get the following message:

Anybody have any idea what might go wrong? I know it's not stable yet. Smile
After that message I get a black screen.

For you to know, I started a post in the Armbian Forum.

https://forum.armbian.com/topic/7844-arm...ice-error/

It looks like the image cannot boot from the SD-Card.
At least according to the error messages.

Simplefb is the Framebuffer driver..
You are using the wrong image.. your image is for a device with a different type of framebuffer.
Try another image.

Try some stuff with A64+ in the name.. if it works find the DTB file and use that to fix other distributions.

Yes, these images don't work. I don't even get a boot screen.

What exactly do you mean? 
I found out that the DTB (Device Tree Blob) is a file which describes all the physical devices in a system. Right? How can I find it and where should I put it?

Most of the distro's put it in the msdos boot partition in the folder dtb or overlays 

Example Linux (some jesse version)

Code:
root@SuperBSD:/ # ls /mnt/msdos/
Image.version* boot.cmd*      bootlogo.bmp*  font32.sft*    kernel*        uEnv.txt*      
bat/           boot.scr*      font24.sft*    initrd.img*    pine64/        
root@SuperBSD:/ # ls /mnt/msdos/pine64/
boot0-pine64-pinebook.bin*      fes1-pine64-pinebook.bin*       sun50i-a64-pine64-pinebook.dtb* u-boot-pine64-pinebook.bin*
boot0-pine64-plus.bin*          fes1-pine64-plus.bin*           sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dtb*     u-boot-pine64-plus.bin*
boot0-pine64-sopine.bin*        fes1-pine64-sopine.bin*         sun50i-a64-pine64-sopine.dtb*   u-boot-pi
You will want sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dtb for your device
Also make sure to check the u-boot/kerel messages and try and figure out what dtb file it's loading so you get/replace the right one. 

ps. Linux DTB will most likely not work with BSD and vise versa.
ps2. You can also edit your DTB I don't know the command in Linux but FreeBSD I use

extract: dtc -O dts -I dtb -o sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dts sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dtb
[font=Monaco, Consolas, Courier, monospace]edit with some text editor[/font]
[font=Monaco, Consolas, Courier, monospace]extract: dtc -O dtb -I dts -o sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dtb sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dts[/font]
