AOSP master hikey960 not booting

My AOSP master build + flash workflow was working fine a month ago or so.
I synced to AOSP master today. Build is fine + flash is fine, but device fails to boot AOSP. fastboot reboot returns to fastboot.

I see in the following references if I encounter this issue. I tried that procedure, but my Mac host doesn’t recognize the ttyUSB device.

Is there a known issue with AOSP master hikey960?


I reverted back to a non AOSP master build and my device is now booting into Android. So perhaps AOSP master is broken somehow, or I need a different process to update my board.

Could you attach the output of the debug/console when booting master.

It seems that I also have the same issue with AOSP master, during flash all I have the next message:

fastboot: error: Couldn't parse partition size '0x0.5'.

but all other steps finished with OKAY.
After flashing target reboots but goes into fastboot mode.

I have a vague recollection of something to do with the actual fastboot executable used to load to the device. Try finding different versions of it, like distro supplied or older.

In any case, that’s not the same issue as for this thread.
