[SOLVED] NEW XU4Q UNBOXED DOESNT BOOT

Post by d4rK »

Can someone provide any insight here?
Out of the box doesn't work. Have tried new emmc flashed with balenaetcher for both android and linux.
Have tried with and without peripherals inserted. switch is set to boot from emmc.
Red light stays solid.

No signal over hdmi and no booted os after 10 mins. Possible RMA?

It would be a good idea to start with an official HK image to narrow down the possibilities.

Also, what are you using for a power supply?

Try this eMMC recovery process for writing an boot loader into the eMMC hidden boot sectors.
viewtopic.php?f=53&t=6173
Also try a micro-SD card booting to narrow down root causes.

If it doesn't help, please contact "odroid at hardkernel dot com" with a URL of this thread.
They will help your RMA process if you purchased the board from our web-store directly.
Otherwise, contact your local distributor/reseller.

Thanks alot for your timely response. I had to order an SD card adapter and micro SD for this recovery process. Following the above process I was able to enable emmc boot and now type this post from ubuntu 20 mate image.

Thanks again
