I got Orange Pi RK3399, trying to follow instructions and burn images downloaded from download area... Tried Ubuntu - no luck, it just does not start, even display is not turned on. Without the card it boots to emmc internal Android. Tried Android image from the downloads area - image writer warns that img is noot bootable, and indeed with card insterted board boots into internal Android, and I can see the card contents (that means card is ok and visible by the board). Anyone knows what could be done?

I think you could try to read the user manual about booting from SD card. Since if you have already boot from EMMC, the image is same, then it should also work.

I also have problems with images. download from orange pi sources.; Ubuntu16.04LXDE, Debian 9, and Ubuntu16.04. When i use RK Android Tool, program does not recognize .img files? I also cant boot from SD card. Method from manual doest not work or difficult to use... Are these .img from orangepi sources for emmc or for SD card?

Of course I read the manual - the problem is that it does not work as written in the manual :-(

I totally agree. I've now spent alot of time trying to get my RK3399 to boot from sdcard without success.

Yes, I have tried different sdcards. I even "borrowed" a card which I know to be working and is booting/running fine on my RPi3. I took a backup of it before overwriting it with different images for RK3399 without success. I tried the pre-built Debian and Ubuntu images from the download section and a custom built image I made using the Linux SDK. I have followed a number of different guides on the OrangePi WiKi, sunxi.org, opensource.rock-chips.com, http://www.denx.de/wiki/U-Boot and many others. No success. When I later restored the backed up RPi3 image to the sdcard and put it into the RPi3 it boots right away, flawlessly. (Yes, i have also tried other cards).

The symptom is always the same; there is no HDMI output to my monitor at all (missing signal). If I boot my OrangePi RK3399 without any sdcard inserted, it boots fine into Android so it is not some cable or monitor issue.

I'm running out of both ideas and patience and I seriously wonder if you actually have tested your images on an sdcard at all (OrangePi-rk3399_Debian9_20171218.img and OrangePi-rk3399_Ubuntu16.04_20171227.img).

Still, it is definitely possible that it is me who have missed something or screwed up in some way so I'm not pointing fingers or playing the "blame-game".... I simply just want it to work. *sigh*

Looks like Ubuntu Server image is broken. I have tried to put it into SD card using dd command:
sudo dd if=OrangePi-rk3399_Ubuntu16.04-Server_20171227.img of=/dev/sde
where /dev/sde is a name of my SD cade device device. My Orange refuses to boot from that card!

After that I have tried to put the image into eMMC following instructions from pages 16 - 20 of manual. No luck! Here is the log:
drsys@swrrrr:~/orangepi/Linux_Upgrade_Tool$ ls

Are there any suggestions how to put Ubuntu (or other Linux) inside the board?
