XU4 no boot no fan sdcard ubuntu 18

Unread post by cryptoZ » Wed Jul 10, 2019 11:35 am

First off, I have 2 tinker boards running off sdcards that I imaged from img, no issues.

I set up the sdcard and plug the board but the fan does not turn on and i only get a red light. Any ideas?

You had to flash the ODROID-XU4 dedicated OS image into your SD cards.

Thanks but like I said, I've done this before.

I had to buy a new microSD card reader(Kingston 15$) because for some reason this board doesn't like the way my computer writes images.

Did you use Etcher to flash the OS image? Do not extract .xz file to .img if you use Etcher.
