Raspberry Pi2 Multi-Boot

Fri Feb 10, 2017 6:59 pm

The instructions for multi-booting a raspberry pi2 in MagPi issue 52 didn't work, is there a link to instructions that do work.
I would be grateful for that information.
Thank you in advance, whether there is or isn't.

Have you read part 2 of the u-boot article in https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi-issues/MagPi54.pdf ?

Yes I have read the instruction article for multi-boot (ing) the raspberry pi2. I have a copy of MagPi 52 and 54. I followed the instructions on 'issue 52' using Ubuntu Mate 15.10 and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS without any success in either one.
Since I couldn't get the instructions to work in Part1, I wasn't prepared to continue to Part2.

I've tried this a couple of times and you're 100% right it doesn't boot. I end up with a poor dead RPi2B with the big rainbow screen on the display.

So I suspect there's some hidden bug in the latest code download.

I've tried the instructions here: viewtopic.php?p=960505#p960505

Built that on my Ubuntu virtualbox and it doesn't work either.
