#1
I downloaded the TinkerOS and burned it to an SD card, I Plugged in Micro USB cable to TinkerBoard, But TinkerBoard wasn't boot and red light.:-(
I'm afraid my expressions may be rude or hard to read, because I'm not so good at English. But please, please be patient! I will try hard to learn English!

Armbian. Lightweight Debian Stretch or Ubuntu Bionic for Tinker Board.

Is it through GPIO or micro USB?
It happen to me that frequently the TB starts, but it turns off after a while. I have to repeat several times before it will start.

If your cable is too long and your connector not the best, 100A will not be enough. Have you read what's written on that link?

I read it. The cable might be too thin. Try to replace the cable.

I will change the cable.

To carry 3 A, it would take about 0,8 mm2, which is about AWG 18. Better if it's less than a meter long.
