    I think its bricked.
    I was trying to update BIOS from 1 to 6 via bootable usb with dos (because my hard drive crashed). I folowed the instructions, and also read here to make an autoexec file and it looked ok. But after taking too long I reset the x86 (I read it only takes a short time to update).
    Now only the green light stays on but no video output or keyboard power. And it wont turn off via the button, unless I hold for some seconds.
    HELP :(

    1. Hey JC, sorry about the issue. I suggest opening a ticket here.

    They did not answer yet or they could not help you?

    My warranty had run out so they gave me no advice.

    That is not so nice....
    What did you already do:
    1. Use another monitor? The Udoo UEFI is rather picky with resolution, perhaps your monitor cannot handle this.
    2. Remove the rtc battery as it will reset the Bios/UEFI settings to default. But only if the update has succeeded.

    That the keyboard is not working is not a good sign.

    Yeah thanks, I tried all that.
    My question is if it is bricked, can anything be done?

    I do not think someone has a repair service for these boards. This is a too niche SBC.
    You could try to ask Udoo if they can repair it (with costs).
