Thank you for this tutorial, but I’ve already done all the steps you are showing in your video.
Unfortunately, I guess that I have burnt my board today, and I don’t know why.
After doing the same manipulation as the video, I checked with a multimeter the voltage on the pin I just activated using GPIO, and the beagle crashed (no screen, and no serial).
Since this moment, I can’t access to the serial port, even after SDCard reformating… Otherwise, the leds next to the SDcard reader light up as the board as if loading the distrib. Maybe I damaged all the E/S from the beagle. In this cas, I will be in trouble with my mentor (I’m doing a workplacement).
I don’t know what to do now, with a broken board where the chip is very warm.
It depends on which BeagleBoard you have. The -xM has no flash. I have not heard of anyone using JTAG to write an SD card. The process for doing that is very easy and it seems to me to use JTAG just makes it more complicated.
