PI resfuses to boot after using dt-blob.bin

due to a self designed board for the pi I need to change the default pin configuration during boot / startup. I need to drive some outputs to high directly after powering the pi.
I decided to use a user provided device tree blob file as it is described here: ...

For test issues I downloaded the sample device tree at the bottom of the page, compiled it with

Code: Select all

dtc -I dts -O dtb -o /boot/dt-blob.bin dt-blob.dts
and it copied to the /boot/ partition.

When I now try to reboot the pi the green led lights up shortly for one time and stays off afterwards. -> No no system startup

Am I doing anything wrong? Do I have to do some additional configuration?

Hardware: Raspberry 2 Model B Rev 1.1
Software: Recent Raspbian Jessie Image (2015-11-21) with Kernel 4.1

You have an out of date dt-blob.dts
Try ... t-blob.dts
