Ive posted it into another thread, but it can be easily overlooked, so new thread:

Ive flashed arm board with latest firmware via USB (previously there was ATH13xxxx firmware),
but now it didnt work at all!
green led flashes quickly at least ten times (like it performs reading) and after two seconds both led stays off
Ive tried also flash it with older yaqube firmware, but results are same.
Its long time ago when ive programmed it and i simply dont know what im doing wrong :D
plus: alternate cores loads well (ie frogger renamed to minimig1.bin)

any ideas appreciated!

Yes this seems to be the reason.
For testing just rename the file into minimig.cfg.txt or something else.
Also run a "checkdisk" at the flash card to correct a possible FAT error.

Strange result, until now I never had a damaged cfg file and assumed the firmware would just skip over at trouble.

Still something is wrong because a missing or damaged config file should not stall the system like this.
There really may be a damage to the RAM or CPU unit.
Its hard to test since the Amiga core require both component to operate. A damaged RAM can stall the bootloader the same way as a damaged CPU.

If anyone has an idea how to help, its welcome.
