@annax: This is what the vendor feels if he hears that another user ran into the Micro USB trap. Unfortunately @sinovoip is simply not able to understand that Micro USB encourages users to use insufficient PSUs and crappy cables. The problem is less the connector itself but the stuff between connector and PSU and most often the PSU (crappy phone chargers or ‘smart chargers’ for example will limit their output to 500mA which can also lead to the problem you’re running into).
The whole problem is well known since ages but @sinovoip doesn’t give a shit as usual and laughs about customers running into this problem. Or maybe @sinovoip is really not able to look at his products from a customer’s perspective?
tkaiser, the usb charger from apple have this information printed:
Output 5.1v , 2.1a
the BPI-M3 i have does have micro power option and dc power option. I have tried to install Ubuntu Mate 15.10 from here: http://bananapi.com/index.php/download?layout=edit&id=90 and it worked with the same micro usb power… i’m lost and dont understand why it does not work when i use the images on this website. I bought 7 BPI-M3 and now i feel i cant use them so i have lost a lot of money.
You’re too funny! He said that this old image works. In case you update that it won’t work for sure. You really aren’t able to understand the needs of your customers. And you’re the responsible support muppet here. It’s unbelievable
No sinovoip, i needed Debian 8, but it did not work like i have described above so instead i have tested ubuntu 15.10 and it worked. I already have tested all your images and the same problem happens on them. I’m going try to not use OTG port, but the other port use small dc input which i dont have around at moment.
Yes tkaiser the image is not the newest, but i was almost forced when there is no other options that worked…i’m going test the barrel plug and report back when done how it went.
