I tried everything I could and everything I was advised, but it does not work. even in MaskRom mode I have the error IDB Fail. I am completely blocked I do not know what to do and to make matters worse I can not boot with a Micro SD card. How to repair my card? I looked a little on youtube and internet, but there are only people malhonete, there is even one who proposes to solve the problem with a file he called "EMMC IDB Fail.rar" but who actually contains a very dangerous Trojan. Apparently this problem of IDB is frequent it appears much on the forium but few people have a solutions, on the forums the articles are sometimes very old (2014) and more no link is valid. can you help me please, I can not use my Firefly Rk3399 card it is in MaskRom mode since I used the method to put it in Maskrom mode with a small iron screwdriver. Here is a screenshot of the current state of my card. You can see the beginning of my problem here:

Hello,

I just bought a usb3 / usb3 male cable to try directly from usb3 to my computer in usb3, but the cable is not even recognized the connection firefly rk3399 - computer, I tried the same thing with a usb 2 cable, it's the same nothing, only the provided firefly usb3 - usb cable is recognized, but then.

I remind you that I just wanted to update ubuntu in version 18 with the firmware oridinal proposed on the site of firefly.I understand that you are a young company, but I paid 200$ (with shipping and customs charges and even more) for this card, I could have bought 4 Rasberry Pi 3 for this price and I am now owner of a card that is like dead, so apologize if I'm angry, but that can not be understood right?

Sorry if I'm angry, but when I see my "dead" card when she does not even have a week while I'm trying to save her alone on my side can understand each other.

Weird. I personally use an ordinary macro usb cable, with a small Type-C adapter,
which is fine.

From your posts in http://bbs.t-firefly.com/forum.p ... page%3D1&page=2"Read Flash Info" does not return the correct flash size (only the wrong one, zero)

The SD card boot should work out of the box. But I'm afraid there might be something wrong the the HDMI connection.

The best way to know what is happening is to use a serial adapter ( http://wiki.t-firefly.com/en/Firefly-RK3399/senial-debug.html ),
which will get all the way from bootrom, u-boot, to kernel and rootfs.

@navigatoria
Please use AndroidTool_Release_2.58.zip in
http://en.t-firefly.com/doc/download/page/id/3.html#windows_12

AndroidTool 2.39 is not working with Ubuntu firmware.

Please try AndroidTool v2.58 first.

Any serial adapter support 1.5M bps is ok. It should be not hard to find in your Europe online shop.

Hello,

ok I tried AndroidTool v2.58 first, I managed to erase the flash is already good, but I'm still stuck at the IDB fail. What image of ubuntu you advise me to try to flash in the firmware? However, I can never boot with the SD card. When I connect the card in hdmi on the tv, the blue led lights, the TV detects the resolution of the card but the screen remains 100% black, it is normal since there is no firmare in the memory emmc but in the card I flash with balena etcher the image ubuntu sd, but nothing happens. I will try to buy serial adapter support 1.5M bps, but I have very little to throw my money out the window, do you really think that will change something? And what is this IDB error, what is idb?

Thank you.
