Hello, first time poster in here.
I have a BeagleBoard Black RevC, that boot up at one time.
Following Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack Debian - eLinux.org
I tried to “Flash eMMC” so I could boot without needing the SD card. However, I believe I was trying to use a non-flash eMMC type image. And ever since that, I cannot get the board to bring up any sort of way to connect to it. I have tried removing the SD card, pressing and holding the “S2 User” button and powering the board (via usb) then releasing the button after I see the led above the USB power power port all light up. But it seems to be stuck in flash mode. I have tried reformatting the SD card, and applying several different images, then inserting the SD card, and pressing the “S2 User” button until the leds light up. The board appears to start the install (the leds bounce back and forth), then all 4 leds come on solid. I have left the board in that state for 2 hours at the longest period to no avail.
I am hoping someone can help me get the board back to a bootable state…
Thanks for the response. I have been using etcher and have tried several images now…
Your suggestion being the latest…
Format the 32GB SD with default properties
Download BBB image
Open “BalenaEtcher” and flash the image to the SD card (by the way verify always fails)
Insert Sd into BBB RevC SD slot
Hold the S2 button down (I get the same results below without holding S2 down as well)
Plug in the USB Power
Continue to hold the SE button down until all 4 LEDs light up
Release the S2 button
The d2 0, d3 1, d4 2, d5 3 LEDs just about the USB power port flash randomly then do
the LED bounce (where they light up from left to right, the right to left) and go back and forth
like that for a couple minutes, then either d3 1, or d4 2 will light up by its self, and a few seconds
later, all 4 leds come on solid, and they will stay that way no matter how long I leave it.
One thing I have noticed, is in a windows command prompt I am not seeing the IP addresses
192.168.7.2 or 192.168.6.2 associated with USB when doing an ipconfig /all which I did see during my initial executions where I could access both the cloud9 interface, and the FPP web interface.
And after trying using rufus vs. etcher, with am335x-debian-11.5-minimal-armhf-2022-11-01-2gb.img.xz
the process went through the same LED sequences, however, instead of all 4 LEDs being on solid, D3 1
is the only LED that is on solid
I must say , I have not seen "all LES blink together as one: during all the attempts…
Thanks Robert. There appears to be several options in that link you provided yesterday.
Can you point me to the correct one to use with my BeagleBoard Black RevC please? I
will get it ordered and can hopefully get it shipped quickly…
The Standard 3v3 FTDI has an easy connector, just match the GND pin, but they usually run $20/$25 as they are FTDI so you pay the namebrand tax. The other units usually run a 1/3 to 1/2 price, but you need to lookup the pin colors and figure out GND, TX, and RX.
