not able to boot from console-armhf BBB

Hi,

I am trying to boot from microSD with ubuntu-12.10-console [1] but just see all 4 LEDs flashing from left to right and no usb-net appears.
I’ve tried other versions of console with the same result.

At the same time I was able to flash eMMC with BBB-eMMC-flasher [2] and boot from eMMc with usb-net active. Also after removing

flash-eMMC.txt from flasher image I was able to boot from microSD.

Do you have any idea why console is not booting?

Actually I am trying to create flasher from 12.10.

Thank you.

Do you have a usb-serial adapter?

Honestly, it's a very bad idea to run my "old" images (yes 2013-09-26
is ancient) everything is always in flux, bugs get patched, scripts
get improved etc.. I should just delete them on my server after it's
replacement get's released.

So as you can see the 13.10-2013-12-17 works now, but the 2013-09-26
is broken.. I do not have the resources to maintain old release
forever and have no plans to fix the 2013-09-26 release.. Please
upgrade..

IF you really really really want "12.10" run my 'image' script:

https://github.com/RobertCNelson/omap-image-builder

replace this:
https://github.com/RobertCNelson/omap-image-builder/blob/master/rcn-ee_image.sh#L363

with:
DEFAULT_RELEASES="quantal"
run:
./rcn-ee_image.sh

Then from ./deploy/ubuntu-12.10-${image_type}-armhf-${time}/
run:
sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --img BBB-eMMC-flasher-ubuntu-12.10-${time}.img
--uboot bone --beagleboard.org-production --bbb-flasher

and you'll get the "12.10" version of:
BBB-eMMC-flasher-ubuntu-13.10-2013-12-17-2gb.img.xz
