here's what i'd try. unhook everything except hdmi.
flash this image: http://downloads.canaan-creative.com/software/avalon6/openwrt/latest/openwrt-brcm2708-sdcard-vfat-ext4.img

power up rpi and see if it boots.


I did that and nothing happened. I'm starting to getting worried.


Woo! It finally connected! Now cgminer can't detect miner... slow and steady wins the race Cheesy

Did you try the Image on first page - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1257327.0 or just the Ehash image?

It was made by BlockC to work with Avalon 6's,  it's what they ship with on  RPI kit.

I don't see any lights on the back of the avalon. I did set up the cgminer to a pool and this is what the api log says:

[Firmware Version] => Avalon Firmware - 20151111
   luci: b101100
   cgminer: b9d9dd2
   cgminer-packages: d33729e

Socket connect failed: Connection refused

I don't know. It should have been tested before they sold it to me.
I switched from static ip to DHCP and now it shows this:

Code:
[Firmware Version] => Avalon Firmware - 20151111
   luci: b101100
   cgminer: b9d9dd2
   cgminer-packages: d33729e

whats the miner do when you turn on the psu? It should go through an initialization where the fan runs and the lights on the back flash and change colors.

it actually doesn't do anything. I thought it would run as soon as the cgminer runs. I'll try re-plugging the psu.

there is a jumper plug in a clear bag. that goes on the other end and connects the green wire to ground, which tells the psu to turn on.
