So I managed to brick my v7 board while trying to install arch linux. I followed the UART recovery guide and it flashes the recovery. However, when I reconnect to the Espressobin via screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200. I still get the >
Is there anything I can do to fix this? I’ve tried flashing several times with different versions of the recovery.
3. Insert USB thumb drive to ESPRESSOBin v7. Power on ESPRESSOBin V7 then enter to u-boot console
4. Enter below command to reflash bootlaoder, bootloader image. Please select according to your DDR size
MARVELL>> bubt espressobin-bootloader-cpu-1000-ddr4-2cs-2g-atf-ga3306ab-uboot-gaee49fc-20180129-REL.bin spi usb
5. Enter below command
usb reset; fatload usb 0 $loadaddr espressobin-recovery.bin; source $loadaddr
6. Enter below commands to install rootfs to eMMC
mount /dev/sda1 /media
7. When done, restart system and enter into boot console
8. Enter below commands and let ysytem boot from eMMC
env default -asetenv image_name boot/Imagesetenv fdt_name boot/armada-3720-community-v7.dtb
So I have run into an issue downloading the Image file. It failed multiple times from Firefox so I tried with wget. Wget gets to 86% and fails. I specified -c to resume and it keeps attempting to resume but says “Data connection: connection reset by peer; Data transfer aborted.”
Okay so I tried this and all I get is the > prompt then E if I press enter
? brings up
h/? - print this help screen
r yyyyyyyy - read register/memory at address yyyyyyyy in hex
w yyyyyyyy zzzzzzzz - write zzzzzzzz to address yyyyyyyy in hex
j yyyyyyyy - jump to address yyyyyyyy in hex
x y - change the boot mode, where y is in hex
a - UART control passed to AP CPU ROM
c - UART control passed to CM3 CPU ROM
Do I need to set the jumpers in a certain order, RIght now J3 and J11 are set to 2-3 and J10 is set to 1-2.
Is there anything else I can try? What doesn’t make sense to me is that I follow the UART recovery instructions, everything completes successfully and when I go back to the console it just as the > prompt.
