Are you saying if this mod does not work for us, that the unit is most likely faulty? (this is assuming we have done everything correctly as far as flashing and formatting sd cards and all other proper procedures)
I ask because I have removed the resistor and bridged with solder. The white/ blue screen is now fixed and has not gotten hung up on this since the mod. However, it still only boots correctly every 5 maybe more tries. The errors on screen range from a long looping script that I cannot read to a black screen that never changes to going through the orangepi splash screen with sound then freezing after. Basically it still does something different almost every try.
I have bought an additional Samsung 32GB select sd card as well as use the 16GB that came with it. Both work similar and neither are better or worse it seems. This goes for both images supreme and slim plus as well.
With this information (I know its not everything you need to know) is it safe to say that my unit is faulty? or should I remain patient and wait till better images are produced?
Check this post and if you can feedback on these we'll confirm if it needs to be replaced. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1760
Edit: Just read your second message, so it seem it was FAT32 problem? Let me know if your problem persist in the future.
Im sorry, I see how my post was a little unclear concerning FAT32. I have always been formatting my SD cards in FAT32. I was using ApplePi Baker for my formatting and flashing from the start. I was trying to say instead of using ApplePi Baker to format my SD I used Disk Utility instead. For a while it seemed to be working better. But after leaving it for some time and trying to boot up it takes at least 5 tries before a successful boot. Then when I shutdown and boot back up the proper way it takes another 3 or so tries for a successful boot.
edit: I just filled out the questions on the post: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1760
