Check the file name first.
android-4.4.4_alpha-5.4-sd_installer-odroidu-20160307.img.zip

Flash the OS image with Etcher.

7~15 minutes should be fine.

Also check the blue LED status. It must be solid on while the installation process.

Once the bootloader is running, the blue LED must be on without blinking.
Once the OS Kernel is running, the blue LED will be flashing like heartbeat.

Which SD card and which power supply do you use?

Try this Ubuntu image to test your hardware configuration.
http://odroid.in/ubuntu_14.04lts/ubuntu ... 224.img.xz
If it doesn't work, try other SD card.

BTW, where/when did you buy U3 board?
It was already discontinued almost 2 years ago.

Try Fakeflashtest and full format with Formatter 4.0. After that, flash the OS image with Etcher again.

If it doesn't help, your U3 could be damaged.
