Vero 2 delivery

+1 on the bluetooth dongle.

No, the issue occurs in the startup process.

Your issue is that the upstream (SolidRun) kernel disables softirqs too early, so the shutdown / reboot can sometimes hang. The dirty hack I used was to always, explicitly power down via SNVS. You can apply this patch to the old 3.14 tree and the issue should be resolved:

Subject: [PATCH] Explicitly disable power off system by SNVS:

* This results in LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_POWER_HALT being called instead of LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_POWER_OFF which should resolve a kernel panic introduced by ENGR00243120
* This is caused by local IRQs being disabled too early (ugly fix)

Ok, thanks for the info. [quote=“sam_nazarko, post:22, topic:12562”]

  1. I don’t know how to do so
  2. I guess it doesn’t matter since I’ll exchange my device with vero2 :sweat_smile:
  3. Sry for posting unrelated stuff in this thread

I believe we have now fixed the systemd issue and we will now continue on with our testing.


Thank you. Done :slight_smile:

Any news?


We will have an update in a few hours.

Nice…just saw that my previous posts here apparently got deleted… Also one way to deal with criticism :smile:

No one has deleted your posts. I can see them above.

Where does it say they were deleted?

Your posts about the Bt dongle and delays etc are in the Vero 2 is now shipping thread, not this thread. I just clicked on your profile and I can see all of your posts. None have been deleted

Damn, sry my bad! …how many more vero 2 delivery posts are there? one would think one is enough but ok.
