    I’m having a lot of trouble getting started with Armbian Ubuntu 16 (SD Boot) and the board.

    I downloaded the default image from https://dl.armbian.com/espressobin/ and wrote it successfully to the SD card. In UBoot, I have tried using the cmd at https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/master/config/bootscripts/boot-espressobin.cmd and there is no armada-3720-espressobin.dtb file at the path that is called.

    It also cacks out on the if statement saying there is no “load” command.

    If I don’t call the expressobin.dtb and bypass the if statement, using “run bootmmc” starts it loading but it hangs and throws some errors and then hangs.

    Note that I don’t have a physical linux box, I’m using Windows to create the boot/install SD card so editing TXT files is pretty much impossible.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Unfortunately, I’m currently unable to help; I’m waiting for new SD-cards to arrive, since I wore my SD-card out while I was writing Armbian to it.
    It’s better that you post this on the Armbian forum here.

    -This will result in two things:
    1: You’ll get the help you need – likely from an expert on the field, like Igor. 😉
    2: The developers will be made aware if there is an issue with the build.

    As for myself, I’ve attempted to install Armbian directly to SATA, but I haven’t gotten very far; I’ve written the image to a partition; the next thing I need to do is copy the boot files (but I do not know if I can update uboot).

    Note: It says on the Armbian download page: “manual flashing to latest u-boot is mandatory”; see the download page for instructions if you haven’t done this already.


    Thanks, I have posted to their forum.

    Ubuntu Not Booting? Try These 5 Tips
    Ubuntu typically works out of the box. But when problems booting arise, Ubuntu probably takes a while or simply does not boot at all.

    If Ubuntu is not starting, work through these five steps:

    Check for bootable devices
    Is the GRUB bootloader working?
    Repair the bootloader menu
    Reinstall Ubuntu
    Replace faulty hardware
    While these steps are designed for Ubuntu users, they can be applied to other Linux operating systems. Note, however, that if you’re using disk encryption, some of these fixes will not work.

    If your Ubuntu system isn’t booting, it’s time to work through these five steps.


    Your article is very good, I have read a lot of articles but I am really impressed with your writing style. I will review this post.
