Thanks for replying. I tried that and here is the newest information:
2 android images:
M1&M1+android 4.2.2 v2.1
In both cases I just get the red light.
No green light and no video.
I made all of the images with Win32DiskImager-0.9.5
I have tried this with two different BPI-R1 boards and different SD cards (all class 10, new, DiskImager claims write success).
Just to eliminate the last obvious thing, the video connection and output are tested and working.
Is it possible that I have 2 bad pi boards?
Is the green 110 a cry for help from Debian's boot process?
Would you know who to ask?
Is there any simple way to disgnose board activity without HDMI?
