Can't boot Dietpi on Orangepi 3B from SD or eMMC (Armbian works)

I used to boot Dietpi from SD card and MMC fine (copied to eMMC from SD using dd). Worked for a few days, then I messed with the SPI bootloader via dietpi-configAdvanced OptionsUpdate SPI bootloader .

Now I can’t boot Dietpi anymore and it’s only Dietpi.

I cleared the SPI Flash several times using the Orange Pi official method.

Now tried to boot from SD or eMMC:

  • Armbian works
  • Orange Pi official linux works
  • ANdroid works
  • DietPi ca’t boot!

Any tips? Tried several SD cards, same behaviour.

@MichaIng can you have a look please

I also tried to install dietpi from armbian Linux, using the dietpi script installation. It worked but can’t boot after reboot.

The SPI bootloader should not be used when you boot from SD card or eMMC. Or does it have a switch to enforce SPI bootloader usage?

So it would be the MMC bootloader our image is shipped with. Do you have a UART adapter to check serial console output?

There’s no switch to force SPI boot.

I just got an UART adapter. The boot is on loop when I put a DietPi sdcard. THe funny thing is it was working before I messed with SPI updater

Ok it seems like Dietpi recognizes the mask key is pressed, but it is not, and it happens only with DietPi image

EDIT:

Armbian versions with kernel 6+ also have the same problem, it seems for some reason only versions with older firmware can boot fine… I’m just don’t know why

Well @MichaIng it seems there’s an problem with u-boot from DietPi on Orangepi 3B board. How can I install a specific u-boot into Dietpi, like the one from Orangepi SDK?

Ok, I bought the new Opi 3B version (aka 2.1) and DietPi can boot without problem, and my NVME SSD is working, so the problem is my board. I really don’t know if DietPi is the culprit, I believe it’s not.

Strange enough, I got DietPi working in my defective board doing these steps:

1 - Compile the official Opi 3b uboot following the steps from:

Orange Pi 3B - Wiki-Orange Pi

2 - Save the file somewhere.
3 - Burn the official Opi Linux into eMMC
4 - Burn the DietPi image into sd card
5 - Be prepared to insert the sdcard into Opi 3B, but don’t do it yet
6- Starting boot the Opi 3B from NVME and after 2 seconds or soo, quickly insert the SD Card containing DietPi
7 - That way, DietPi will start with the Opi official linux bootloader.
8 - Now install the uboot file you just compiled into DietPi
9 - using the dietpi menu, burn the uboot into sd card
10 - now you have a bootable dietpi in a defective board

I believe the Opi team knows about this problem, that’s why their uboot works every time, and maybe that’s why they made a new board version.

See reference about the NVME problem:

Orange pi 3b NVME problem - Troubleshooting - DietPi Community Forum

Also, in the new Opi 3B board, ethernet is not working with DietPi (that’s another thing).
