Hi,
I thing in the tutorial and in your works your forgot to put a light.

Radiosity compute the light reflection way but does not produces the light.

As usual you still needs a light object.

Actually you need light emitting objects, that is, objects with nonzero emittance…

Well, yes and no.
The “light” for radiosity is an object with emit set to some amount greater than zero (experiment but it doesn’t take that much usually). No usual light source is needed of taken into account.
