I've got a pcDuino Lite that I have been unable to get to boot. I recently hooked up to it's serial debug port and this is what I get when I try to boot:


U-Boot SPL 2012.10-04280-g1a8ac55-dirty (Sep 29 2013 - 17:38:21)

DRAM: ? ? 0MB

### ERROR ### Please RESET the board ###



How do I RESET the board? The RESET button isn't making it happy.

Did  you put a bootable SD card? pcDuino lite doesn't have NAND. It needs the bootable SD card to work.

Yes, that's with a bootable card. I've tried both images. When I try without a card, I get nothing on the serial port.

This is pcDuino lite. You don't need to update. Where did you order this? We may need to recall it.

Does seem like it needs a recall, I have tried the ubuntu image, the android image, a 2gb uSD card as well as a 16gb one. Two different readers, used the SDCard formatter that the Raspberry Pi people recommend to blank the cards before imaging. Imaged it on an OSX machine and a Linux machine, two different USB adapters as well as a laptop's built in SD slot. Nothing is making this thing happy.
I bought this unit back in February on eBay, I'm just now getting into a project where I have a use for it. I've got a USB SDR (software defined radio) that this thing would work nicely for.
