BL1 is not encrypted, you are lucky. One of the possible sources of problems is now excluded. But to identify the cause, you still need a boot log.


#23

The only way to get one is using a UART cable?


#24

Use USB to TTL converter


#25

Yeah I had one but it’s not working anymore, gotta buy another then.

I suppose there isnt a way to log LibreELEC’s boot to a file?


#26

Kernel messages can be redirected to display (HDMI). This can be activated in kernel command line by the following entry:

console=tty0

Find out how you can do it on the internet, or buy a converter that costs ~ 2$ :slight_smile:


#27

Just got a new one, plugged in the box, got some garbage characters fed to the termninal, then the converter fried :frowning:


#28

It’s very difficult to fry the converter. The garbage characters indicate a transmission error, check the baud rate, which must be 115200.


#29

Im lucky then lol, it even melted the contacts and smelled burnt and wont blink the lights anymore.

Oh well gotta buy another then.


#30

Or you just buy a box, which is known to be supported by CoreELEC. :wink:


#31

Where’s the fun on that? :wink:


#32

It was not meant as an offense. Excuse me, if I sounded rude.
Personally I would have given up a few days ago, when this damn box just refuses to work.

There are so many cheap boxes around, and it’s impossible to support them all.
It’s already a kind of magic, that CoreELEC is running on most of them out of the box.


#33

Nah didn’t take as a offense at all! I just like to tinker and make things work, I think it’s fun to find what’s wrong on things and fix it!


#34

Wrong / faulty power supply voltage perhaps? :thinking:


#35

Good question, would android and armbian run normally if so?


#36

Up until the point that the fault occured, yes :wink:

Are you saying that Android and armbian run normally after this?


#37

No, that was what happened with the TTL conversor, the box is fine.
