Non-Responsive New Odroid-XU4

Unread postby wdesponts » Fri Feb 17, 2017 11:10 pm

OK, I've now spent over 4 hours trying to get this little board started all to no avail. I need some help please!

I was able to have one successful boot, but after shutting it down via the command line to address a missing USB3 connected drive issue, the XU4 has not been willing to reboot. My rig consists of an Odroid-XU4 and the Odroid Cloudshell.

I was able to find the post about the USB3 connection problem and carefully cleaned the contacts as per the instructions. When I attempted to re-start the rig, it was non-responsive. I do get a red light indicating that the XU4 board is getting power, but nothing else happens. This led me to format and re-flash several images on three different SD cards multiple times to ensure that the problem is not with my activities. Here are the images I used:

  • ubuntu-16.04-mate-odroid-c1-20160727
  • omv_2.1.1_xu3_xu4
  • syncloud-odroid-xu3and4-17.01(First Boot Worked)
  • android-4.4.4-alpha-3.1-sd2emmc_installer-odroidxu3-20151006

To create these SD cards I followed the advice in the wiki and forms and used FAKEFLASH to test the cards and SDFomater to format them before flashing. I also used the odroid version of Win32DiskImage.

All attemps keep resulting in the same problem. The XU4 will not boot.

Can any one advise....is this a defective board?

The first image on your list has a "c1" in the name and is for the ODROID C1 not for the ODROID XU3/XU4. Make sure you download the correct images.

Make sure the boot select switch is set correctly to your boot medium (SD or eMMC).
Donate to support my work on the ODROID GameStation Turbo Image for U2/U3 XU3/XU4 X2 X C1 as well as many other releases.
Check out the Games and Emulators section to find some of my work or check the files in my repository to find the software i build for ODROIDs.
If you want to add my repository to your image read my HOWTO integrate my repo into your image.

Remove the hard drives and try again, sounds like a power issue.

1. Not for XU4
2. No experience with this OS.
3. Works
4. This file you flash to SD, boot with eMMC attached and it flashes the eMMC for you..so not going to work.

That is 2 out of 4 that definitely won't work.

I also use an XU4 in a CloudShell and can't recommend DietPi enough, it's based on Debian Jessie (meveric maintains a LOT of packages for this base) and has a super easy configuration and 'addon' system.

I hate to direct link to his files but to be certain you get the right file:
