Posted this to the packages section (per the bug reporting process) as a bug with this thread linked to the bug report. A link to the report I posted about the is here:

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14992

As others have seen today this is likely a direct result of updating the following packages:

raspberrypi-bootloader-20201214-1
raspberrypi-bootloader-x-20201214-1
raspberrypi-firmware-20201214-1

As the Pi 1, 2, 3, and Zero do not have updatable firmware, all of the firmware and boot images are included in the boot filesystem on the SD card and read when the device is powered on so it should not be that users are missing an important pre-requisite step prior to updating and rebooting, the update itself is likely causing the broken behavior.

pi zero w and pi 3b: no boot, no screen

Postby krepst » Tue Dec 15, 2020 9:12 am

Hi,

This morning I updated and reboot both perfectly working raspberries. Since the reboot, both raspberries cannot boot anymore - green led is on, no other action. I connected pi 3b to monitor, but even rainbow isn't showing up on power on.fsck on sdcard found nothing. Currently making 32gb sdcard image backup, and will try to re-install. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

@bbeaudoin - thank you for the info, no need to double-post.
@krepst - Merged your topic into this one.

MOD NOTE - Moved original thread to Packages

https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/issues/1511

EDIT: I just sent f7990c9 corresponding to the last-good bootloader. You can either downgrade to 20201208-1 from your cache or wait for this to hit a mirror.

Thank you graysky: restore of working /boot has worked on both: 3b+ and zero.

Because I was clumsy, I had to download ArchLinuxARM-rpi-2-latest.tar.gz for my pi zero to completely restore /boot and /lib/modules: this let me boot linux and reinstall latest kernel: after reboot, kernel is 5.4.83-1-ARCH (as expected).

Yes, Same problem here. For sure it is a bug in upstream.

I had same issue with a pi today.

How i fixed this:
  • I removed physically the pi's sdcard to mount it into my labtop
  • I downloaded official raspberrypi firmware at https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/commit/919aee0ed75f7db48a38b8b96c13228a7584cfd7 (as linked by graysky)
  • I extracted and remplaced existing files -except kernel*.img- from firmware-919*/boot directory to my sdcard's boot partition. Note that you don't need to polute your boot partition with non existing files
  • Put back the sdcard and power-on the pi
Pi is now working

here's the commands I issued on my labtop:
Code: Select all
# MOUNT the sdcard boot partition and replace following line accordingly
export boot_partition=/run/media/86E5-09D4 # REPLACE this

mkdir rbpi_boot_fix_dec_15_2020 && cd rbpi_boot_fix_dec_15_2020
export commit=919aee0ed75f7db48a38b8b96c13228a7584cfd7
wget https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/archive/${commit}.tar.gz -O firmware.tar.gz
tar -xvf firmware.tar.gz
tar -cJf backup.tar.xz -C "$boot_partition" .
rsync -avz --existing --exclude 'kernel*.img' firmware-$commit/boot/ "$boot_partition"
sync
# unmout "$boot_partition"


PS: You should wait for a new bootloader to popup and do not perform any pacman -Syu command until then

Raspberry pi 3B won't boot after system update

Postby pmedina » Tue Dec 15, 2020 4:42 pm

Hello folks,

First time posting here, long time reading/searching.
Yesterday I formatted a working sd card with armv7 arch linux into a fresh install (for testing purposes);

After installing everything, the rpi didn't boot anymore. So I formatted a couple of times, and every time it stopped booting after the pacman -Syu command. The same happens with aarch64 system.

I've tested the same card with raspbian lite and it's working normally, upgrading and stuff. But boy, raspbian is so clunky compared to arch!

I didn't find anything about that in recent discussions. It's the first time that I'm really clueless about maintaining my arch system and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards
pmedina

The package was build a few min ago and should be available to mirrors shortly.

raspberrypi-bootloader 20201215-1 hit the repos. Just update and you'll be fine.
