also after downloading the kernel files please use the checksums to verify whether the file downloaded is complete or not

best luck

Stop doing what you are doing because that UBoot was made before the BeagleBone Black design was finished!



What should I do? I can’t even using the Angstrom for booting up. The demo image work well but the my built image doesn’t work.


the simplest way:

Get a UBoot that was made for it. Maybe the one that came with the board??
