When I boot this with my brand new m64, the red LED comes on for 11 seconds, goes off for 1 sec, and then the process keeps repeating. HDMI display shows the screen change to a black background with some horizontal rain like white lines for a split second before it goes dark and the output signal goes off. I tried 2 SD cards, and tried burning via both OSX and Windows but have no luck. Does this really work?
I checked the MD5, it is all good. I use a genuine Apple iPad charger as well as a third party charger with no luck. I also tried booting without any USB and HDMI and network to reduce power consumption but it is still the same. 11 seconds red LED, followed by a blip, then another 11 seconds red LED, another blip, …
I tried burning the full Raspbian image and that boots up fine though I see there is no WiFi support, eth0 has a 169.x.x.x address and I haven’t bothered further because I need WiFi support.
I’m about to try Avafinger’s stuff but do you guys Bpi have a simple Linux image I can use?
I finally managed to have Raspbian Lite work (maybe I did not correctly burned my SD card the first time). However, the image don’t work well:
WiFI is not working
GbE is not working. You need to change to 100Mb Full duplex manually to have network working correctly. As ethtool is not present, I forced the network port on switch side to be 100Mb and the banana pi adapted itself. However, I just saw that mii-tool might be present, so you could change to 100Mb by using mii-tool (https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkConfiguration#Setting_the_speed_and_duplex)
