Pine A64+ boot problem

Hey guys,

Been trying to get FreeBSD installed on the Pine A64+ (Rev B, 2016-02-24; 1GB), but have run into problems. Was hoping someone might have some pointers on how to hop over those.

I've tried a number of images but not having the TTL cable yet I'm stuck with those that show stuff on my monitor (HDMI-to-DVI converted). Luckily, the most recent images (e.g., FreeBSD-12.0-CURRENT-arm64-aarch64-PINE64-20180110-r327788.img) are amongst them. This is the output I'm getting:

After that the process hangs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
