Banana Pi BPI-M2 Pro gigabit cable can work normally under CoreELEC?

Thanks for your guidance, I successfully re-flashed the bricked SBC with the Android firmware using the method you introduced today.

I think this is wrong. You have:
BL2 time stamp: Built : 14:02:05, Nov 23 2020
And there are existing bl301 for:
221119 and 091020

So correct should be 091020 not 221119.

What Android image from Banana Pi you using? Download link?

Hi, I used the Android firmware provided by their website download site.
and the version is
You can see here:

And may I ask the reason as to why an Android image different from the one recommended by BPI and CoreELEC is being used?

The latest is generally considered more stable, and I think the Chinese are tired of promoting software updates, like the page links to the June firmware, but when the October update is already available, the page has not been modified yet.

Please update CE with this image:

After update you can try inject_bl301 again.

Thank you very much. big brother.
Wake up and CEC features are work fine now.

BL301.bin needs to be updated on eMMC

Please confirm to write the bootloader blob BL301 to
the internal eMMC! Please ensure to update first the device
to the last vendor firmware! And remember if the vendor
firmware get updated you have to do this step again as the
bootloader blob will be overwritten!

Continue? [y/n] y
Make backup of vendor bootloader to: /flash/2b0b010001321f0000103833334e3050_bl301.bin

Finished update of BL3* blobs on internal eMMC!
Please reboot device now and enjoy the new CoreELEC wake-up features!

Good to know it finally worked for you.
Could you figure out in detail what was the key point different to your attempts before?
e.g. pressing SW4, or connection to micro-usb…
This would really help to improve our Wiki.

Press and hold SW4 is the key, other steps are the same as before, only by pressing and holding SW4, USB_Burning_Tool can recognize the SBC that has been bricked, and can re-brush the Android firmware.
This is a very clever circuit design, it should be similar to a jumper, but unfortunately you didn’t announce it earlier, otherwise I wouldn’t have to return it to the factory for maintenance.


Thanks for letting us know.

When I wrote the documentation, the eMMC module on the SBC was blank. It appears there is no need to invoke the switch with a blank module. It’s good to know that in case the module has data on it, the switch needs to be used.

The Wiki has been updated accordingly.

Thanks for everything the CE team has done for us, it’s really not easy, to support so many strange hardware, especially when the development team doesn’t have enough hardware samples, I am very satisfied with this SBC at present, thank you again.
