I am trying to boot FarmBot without connecting motors (At this moment, I cannot physically access the place), so I want to set up the software. However, I am facing an issue with the OS not loading.
- Then my friend brought up an assumption that the Undervoltage was an issue. We tried with an adapter with a 5V voltage, but the software was still not running.
- I was keeping in touch with Farmbot support, and they proposed several possible ways to resolve this:
a) The SD card should be flashed again. So I took another SD card and flashed the image on the new SD card. Then, when I tried to run it, it was still not running.
b) Try to run it in simulation mode as shown here: Simulating a FarmBot | FarmBot Developer Documentation
I had my Arduino with me, so I tried that setup and again tried to run the 1.2 version of the software. However, for some reason, it was still not working.
c) They also asked to send some screenshots from the web application, but it was not running, so RPi created no WiFi network, so it just didn’t make sense to me.
- The issue could be with the SD card, so I tried to flash and upload regular RPi OS, and it was running correctly.
I am attaching photo of the log when I tried to load farmbot.
