So I just re-imaged the eMMC card for my oDroid C2, and now it doesn't seem to be powering up at all - was working before I took it out of the case - but now nothing, No blue light, no red light, no lights at all.

 

Have I somehow killed it?

how is it powered?

 

no redlight means no power, could you try it on a different power supply?

 

you didnt bump the USB OTG power cable jumper did you?

I had this....I was able to get it going with an SD card, I think just the eMMC died.

 

So I think I ended up puttin in an SD card...and then used a USB connected SSD and replaced the root file system.  The only thing the SD card is used for is telling the system about the SSD and to mount it.

I'm getting the same thing with an SD card as well - I just tried.

It's a 5.1V 2A USB charger, so should be heaps. It's the same charger and cable it's always used.

 

I've tried a couple of different images but no joy so far. I backed up the working image before I decided to upgrade, so I'll restore that tonight and see if it starts up.

id try changing the usb charger and cable, could be something that simple, it should have a red light on when plugged into power.

OK, so it was just me being a dumb-ass.

 

I haven't done anything with Linux or an oDroid etc in ages. I didn't realise that a *.img.xz file need to be extracted before imaging onto the eMMC.
