You need to see if the BananaPi M1 has mainline support.

Your image was not an official one, you you likely need to ask the maintainer of that image.

linux-am33x will not work. As a matter of fact, it will break your installation.

FYI: There is mainline kernel support (linux-armv7) but there might be things that won't work with the new kernel. you may also need a new u-boot.


Though i do not recommend updating unless you know what you are doing and have a seriel/UART cable
