Nano Pi Fire 3 fails to boot

I have a NanoPi Fire 3 and using the stock Android image on the MicroSD card, it boots fine but the screen is portrait so want to use the custom Android build that I have for the NanoPC T3 Plus and as the build setup is the same on the Wiki for the NanoPi Fire 3, I assumed it would work. I fused this to the MicroSD card and everything looks similar to the stock image, apart from the fact there will be some additional drivers.

When it boots, I see this in the serial terminal.

Code: Select all

BL1 by Nexell V1.0.0-g44b48cd [Built on 2017-08-02 15:58:54]

Memory Initialize (0) Done.

Loading from sdmmc...
 Image Loading Done!
Launch to 0x7FD00800
ERROR:   Failed to load BL33 (-2)

and at this point, it just hangs.

I've not changed the bootloader, just the uImage, and the Android image files.

Fixed. I decided to use the existing image and then copy the new files over and fuse the SD card. Now I can boot my custom Android version.
