Sorry to revive an old thread but the subject fits to my problem exactly.
I compiled a kernel with make bindeb-pkg according to previous message to add some IIO synth drivers, but it does not boot. There seems to be a loop that flashes eth led periodically. Is the default branch in linux-olimex the correct one (release-20210821-v5.10.60)? The board is a20 olinuxino micro.

I installed official Debian bullseye with sysvinit (not from the Olimex image) on one of my A64-oLinuXino boards today. I am happy to report that - unlike with earlier versions - the OS seems to work reliable without the need to manually replace DTB files. Two issues still persist:
- Entering the the disk encryption password via serial does not work (workaround: use a usb keyboard or enter it over the network via dropbear). - Power consumption in idle remains high (2W in idle with network attached). - Several errors are reported on bootup in dmesg (e.g. "sun50i-a64-pinctrl 1c20800.pinctrl: Couldn't get bank PH regulator")
I didn't try the new SCP (crust?) firmware to reduce power usage yet. Anyways, the system is finally not freezing anymore when using only software from the official Debian distribution which is great step forward!
