Please excuse my ignorance as I'm really an HPC researcher working on
building a small odroid-c2 cluster for parallel scaling research.
You're correct that the kernel should be working out of the box and I
don't believe that is my issue. It seems that u-boot isn't cooperating.
I flashed the minimal image
to the eMMC card and then tried to install u-boot according to these
for the provided sd_fusing.sh. This should be adding the u-boot binaries
to the beginning of the card; however, when I power the board on I
simply get a solid blue kernel LED which seems to suggest that u-boot is
starting but unable to boot the kernel.
I was able to find an older fedora 25 image using a modified 3.14 kernel
that boots so I'm attempting to go through the upgrade process for this

I've had a number of reports it works just fine. I don't have a device
based on the same chipset to be able to confirm this though.

The Fedora kernel should work just fine so I have no idea why you
would even do anything you've attempted above.

The only thing you should have to do is deal with the U-Boot side of
things, I believe that there's a need for a signed binary blob for the
early part of u-boot and you can use that in combination with the
Fedora build u-boot bit to boot the device but I've not got the exact
details. You shouldn't have to modify the kernel except possibly if
you want accelerated graphics but given you mention the Server image I
suspect that's not the case.
