Hello, I’ve got 4 other of these same Transpeed X4 S905x4/4gb ram/32gb emmc/100mbit boxes from aliexpress that have ce installed to emmc and worked fine but this latest one seems to be giving me fits. It boots stock android fine from emmc and with android on the emmc, it boots coreelec just fine from usb (toothpick trick). But once ce is installed to emmc, it will no longer boot.
I hooked up a serial connection to see what was going on and it seems to be failing to pass avb (see linked update.log below, around line 1342, for the actual error). Additionally, if I
setenv avb2 0 from the console, I can successfully issue
boot and it’ll boot coreelec off the emmc, but upon another reboot, it gets tossed into that boot loop failing avb again. It seems
saveenv doesn’t do anything because my avb2 env property gets reset back to 1 every boot. I checked my other boxes and avb2 is enabled on them, so it seems weird that this one only boots with it disabled.
Logs (new user so I can’t attach, but I’ve linked logs):
- android.log - this is just a log of it booting android. Hoping maybe a tidbit of info here could help
update.log - this takes us through a boot (initiated via a
reboot updatefrom android) to usb, a
ceemmc -xcommand and successfull install to emmc, a reboot from there that fails avb, and then dropping into a console, disabling avb and successfully booting
Any thoughts here? I’ve restored android to this thing a few times, booted that up, and started over installing ce, but it always runs in to this boot loop with avb failing.
