Tonight I tried to update my VIM3 to the latest Android, I used the burn tool to create a SD card image with no problem but when I tried to get into upgrade using TST Mode I got a update screen with many options including Update From EXT which I clicked on and it took me to a screen which had multiple lines of something like ‘can’t find SD’ so I tried booting into upgrade mode using MRegister Mode. When I did this the Red LED came on bright and stayed on so I tried to reboot and the VIM3 is completely dead…nothing will bring it back.
Is it fried? Is there a special reboot or repair available?
Thanks for replying. I was using a 12volt 2 amp supply when the board went down and I measured the supply with my DMM and it is outputting exactly as specified. I just now tried a USB-C cable to power the VIM3 but no signs of life at all from it.
“you are all right, you need to restore the board, I wrote above as”
Thanks for your replies Vlad. I tried your suggestion but no signs of life, no LED’s at all on power up. It seems like the board is not getting power but I know it is. I would try Krescue but I can not get the board to run at all.
It’s past 1AM here and I’m going to hit the sack and tackle the problem with a fresh head in the morning.
I went out and bought a new 12volt power supply and USB-C cable but the VIM3 remains dead…no LEDS lighting. I tried pressing the reset button in case this would bring it back to life but no luck with that either. I don’t know enough about electronics to really troubleshoot or repair the SBC so I am thinking of returning it to KHADAS for repair…
