ERROR Amlogic device not found

I get this error while flashoing and my card cant boot even

burn-tool -v aml -b VIM3 -i /home/boudour/Downloads/VIM3_Pie_V210128/update.img
Try to burn Amlogic image…
Burning image ‘/home/boudour/Downloads/VIM3_Pie_V210128/update.img’ for ‘VIM3/VIM3L’ to eMMC…
Amlogic device not found

Connect the vim board to the computer, open UBT, select the image, press the middle button three times within two seconds on vim, the vim board will be detected.

i did this
the problem is after doing those commands to flash vim3 with android 11

cd path/to/aosp/device/amlogic/yukawa/bootloader/
./tools/update write u-boot_kvim3_noab.bin 0xfffa0000 0x10000
./tools/update run 0xfffa0000
./tools/update bl2_boot u-boot_kvim3_noab.bin

and then

fastboot oem format
fastboot flash bootloader u-boot_kvim3_noab.bin
fastboot erase bootenv
fastboot reboot bootloader

i cant boot even the khadas logo didnt show

Normal image can you install Android 9?

no i cant flash anything

the vim3 board stop reading the emmc i think the only think that i can do is
./tools/update write u-boot_kvim3_noab.bin 0xfffa0000 0x10000
./tools/update run 0xfffa0000
./tools/update bl2_boot u-boot_kvim3_noab.bin

I mean there is voltage on the vim board itself, what color is the led on?

white :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Then you need the uart serial debugging tool.

I had a similar problem with one of my USB-C cables and switched to another fixed the issue.

Yes, can certainly try all the simplest options, but I think his problem is deeper, I hope the problem is somewhere on the surface.

I only brought it up as its so similar to my issue. My VIM3 would not boot, and would not go into ‘loading mode’ via three press method. But I had power the led was on etc.
Replaced the cable and everything worked.

Its worth a quick try :slight_smile:


Android 11 is to blame. :rofl:


if update is having trouble seeing your device, one thing that helped me was installing libusb

sudo apt update
sudo apt install libusb-1.0-0

also you need to tell the os, if linux that the application has permission to write to devices using by setting the rule in the /etc/udev/rules.d, and add in a file such as “48-example.rules” with information describing the vendor id and in some cases the product id.
