After flashing this image, the Edge2 doesn’t boot. It shows the Khadas logo, flashes to black briefly and then show the Khadas logo again, where it stays forever. No spinning wheel with the Ubuntu logo next to it as usual from the VIM3 images I’ve been flashing.
I tried several times on two different Edge2 devices, all with the same result.
When flashing edge2-ubuntu-22.04-server-linux-5.4-fenix-1.2-221018.img.xz, I get the same result.
I’ve even tried -gnome- images with the same result.
Update: I figured the device isn’t really stuck at boot - it’s just the Khadas logo never disappears, so I can’t login to the console. The same is true after installing X. Other than the display, the device appears to behave normal: I can ssh into it, install packages, start services etc.
BTW: Your leaflet is wrong: It says you have to press FUN + PWR to boot into OOWOW, but it’s actually FUN + RST, just like with the VIM devices. Also, I had to repeat this before it would actually boot into OOWOW. I’m running the beta version 221019.
Most important is to insure you have MINIMUM 24W power adaptor, I banged my head against the wall trying to figure it out and simply finding the right power adaptor (30W/2A) and high quality USB-C solved all the problems. Seems to be quite common issue on this forum.
Actually, I have both the original 24W and the 30W power supply from Khadas. That should be overkill to boot a device with just a mouse/keyboard and HDMI display connected. Anyway, power is not the issue because it shows me the Khadas logo all the time.
The behavior is the same on the new VIM4. Looks very much like a Kernel bug.
Also I can boot the Android image from OOWOW, except Android is useless for our use case.
Have you tried booting with no USB devices connected?
I’ve got this problem when I’ve got all my USB devices connected.
Boots fine without anything connected and then I can connect everything. I do have way too many USB devices for this board.
