Hey there -
I’m having issues getting my Raspberry Pi 2 to boot. I’ve tried all 3 of the supported Dev & Prod versions - 2.43rev1, 2.38rev1, and 2.36rev2. I even tried the earliest available - v2.12.3 and keep getting the same kernel error (7 blinks of ACT) each time. I’ve tried multiple SD cards and have used the same SD cards w/ Raspbian before and after imaging them w/ balenaOS and it’s booted up just fine. I’m using Etcher for both balenaOS and Raspbian.
The last image I tried before giving up was v2.12.3:
$ cat os-release ID="resin-os" NAME="Resin OS" VERSION="2.12.3+rev1" VERSION_ID="2.12.3" PRETTY_NAME="Resin OS 2.12.3+rev1" RESIN_BOARD_REV="c2b8339" META_RESIN_REV="c286ca0" SLUG="raspberry-pi2" MACHINE="raspberrypi2" VARIANT="Production" VARIANT_ID="prod"
My board doesn’t have the version written on it, but after booting to Raspbian, here’s the version from /proc/cpuinfo:
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo processor : 0 model name : ARMv6-compatible processor rev 7 (v6l) BogoMIPS : 697.95 Features : half thumb fastmult vfp edsp java tls CPU implementer : 0x41 CPU architecture: 7 CPU variant : 0x0 CPU part : 0xb76 CPU revision : 7 Hardware : BCM2835 Revision : 000f Serial : 000000002fb82ab3 Model : Raspberry Pi Model B Rev 2
I also ran an rpi-update just in case this was some sort of issue w/ my really old firmware.
What am I missing? Please halp! =)
