android 4.2 Not booting

11 4062
Hi, I am new to Banana PI's and i seem to not be able to boot android 4.2 or 4.4. I made sure i have a 5v 2a PSU, I tried 2 different cards, 2 different PSU's. The pi works fine with rasbbarian. All that happens is a solid red light. Tried pressing both the Pwr and rst buttons but nada. Any help would be great. I also tried different IMG files. Using both Phnx v3.09 and 3.10.

Help a newbie out

I am also a newbie, it also happened to me, but I resolved the issue by using another usb cable.

I tried. Many many times lol. What class sd card are you using. I'm using a class 4 and I'm assuming that's the problem.

I am using 8G Sandisk classs 10, haven't got any problem except I am using Mattrix's 3.0 Android (both 720p and 1080p) can't get my edup ep-n8508gs to work.

I am not only new to bpi but also have zero technical  background

Using a class 4 card is definitely part of your problem. Such a card simply won't do.
You need a class 10 card for reliable use of Android.

Since you didn't get it to boot at all, we can't know if there are additional problems, but the class is definitely one.

Ok quick update. I bought a class ten and installed the IMG on a different computer(Just in case) Ill let everyone know if it worked out. I am using the HDMI TO DVI cable but from what i was reading that's a problem in 4.4.
