Cannot shutdown my box (it just reboots)


Since the nightly 20190115 I cannot shutdown my box (Tanix TX92 with S912) anymore - it just reboots. No matter if I use the hardware button on the box, the menu item within Kodi or turning it off via my mobile phone remote app… it just reboots.

Any idea?

Can you paste output of lsmod.

Here it is… I just tried the “shutdown” command via putty, same result: Instant reboot :neutral_face:

As I thought, you have the qca9377 chipset, we are aware of this issue, since changing the firmware to fix bluetooth on other devices, it is causing some devices to be unable to power off and instead reboot.

Ok, anything I can do?

Try from a terminal

shutdown now -h

to see if it would make any difference.

@Senseohasser nothing yet, as I said the team is aware of it and we are looking into it.

Does not work either :neutral_face:

Same behaviour here after upgrading from 9.1.2 --> 9.2.2 and 9.2.3. an my Khadas Vim3L

Vim3L. same behaviour with no matter what Android is flashed in eMMC

Also tried with CoreElec in eMMC – cannot shut down! :angry:

Can you please open a new thread as you have an SBC that will work with power on and off with CE.
We need to know what you have setup with remote.
Have you injected bl301 and remote Khadas in CE settings

Sorry for the late reply:
regarding your questions:

  • no bl301 injected
  • dont know what you mean @khadas remote
  • It all started after flashing: [VIM3_Pie_V200320] or [VIM3_Pie_V200624]
    { }
    –> prior to this I just had: [VIM3L_Pie_V191011] which was able to shut down properly

After the appropriate answer regarding the abov 2 questions, I will open a new thred

CoreELEC settings addon

Navigate to Hardware

Choose Remote and click on Khadas

Inject bl301 and follow prompts.


If you flash another Android Rom in future
You will have to repeat the above.
