I am unable to flash linux on a new HiKey 960 board based on the steps here:
I tried using fastboot as well as SD card as mentioned here:
The boot image and fastboot files were downloaded from here:
The version of boot image is boot-linaro-stretch-developer-hikey-20180828-19.img
Some observations are here:
- Upon flashing first, the board failed to boot without any led lights being turned on.
- On second attempt, the lights were on, but the USB-A and HDMI ports were non functioning as there was no power output.
- I also tried recovery flash of the base firmware in vain and it did not yield any result.
I repeated the experiment with another new HiKey 960 board only to observe the same result.
Is there a version of the Debian image that is stable and that which drives display?
How could I ssh to the board if the board does not drive the HDMI port?
Any help would be appreciated.
