I'm trying to flash HiKey board using standard procedure but I'm not getting any signs of life on the host laptop after connecting the USB cable. I checked both recovery mode and fastboot.efi. I tested with 2 cables and different USB sockets on my laptop and USB hub. Has anyone seen the failure like this? The board is flashed with alip image and can boot just fine.
So, your board can boot into debian alip image well, but it fails to enter either recovery mode (jumper 3-4) or fastboot.efi (jumper 5-6) mode. I didn't hear this before.
I'm not sure about recovery mode, as it doesn't signal anything. I'm able to start fastboot from grub but there is nothing on the usb host side. Dmesg doesn't show anything when I connect the board to the host in either recovery or fastboot modes.
When it boots into debian alip, can the OTG port work well?
I didn't check that yet.
