Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

Some JMicron controllers are known to be troublesome and require disabling UAS to operate at high speed. Try adding usb-storage.quirks=0578:0578:u to the beginning of the line in /boot/cmdline.txt (usb-storage.quirks=0578:0578:u console=tty1...) Thank you! That worked like a CHARM. :D (If you could...

Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

I see a JMicron controller (0578:0578), and an additional VIA USB 2.0 hub (2109:2817). Some JMicron controllers are known to be troublesome and require disabling UAS to operate at high speed.

Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

Does any of this persist from one installation to another? Meaning, if I followed the bootloader update instructions a week ago, would they still be on the Pi or would that have reverted back with every new OS installation afterward? Yes it does. I started to ask if you knew this yesterday morning....

Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

What you are claiming is impossible. You are either mistaken about your Pi4 not being updated, or you've left out some important detail (like the extra step that updated your bootloader), or you're just trolling. Does any of this persist from one installation to another? Meaning, if I followed the ...

Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

Raspbian does not automatically select the beta bootloader, if you have edited /etc/default/rpi-eeprom-update and selected beta that would work. You can test this by reverting the bootloader and repeating the steps above. Mine says critical, not beta. still boots (slow as molasses in January but it...

Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-05-28

The latest firmware is in APT so installing Raspberry Pi OS to an SD card, apt update, apt full-upgrade does work. Clearly you have to update the bootloader as well which is already covered in the instructions. That's just it. I didn't update the bootloader manually. The ONLY thing I've done, twice...

Anyone who has this issue and finds it resolved with over_voltage=1
can you try:
test firmware scb125
test firmware volts

with over_voltage=1 removed and report if either firmware fixes the USB issue.
Best method to flash?

Is there a way to revert if it fails?

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

It's a power issue that is preventing the USB device from starting up, I think. Could the USB startup failure halt the startup processes altogether? My issue was that it would never finish booting and never showed any error scripts after the 4 berries, it just went black and the green ACT light wou...

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

The more people who test and find the the over_voltage fixes the USB boot issue, the more sure we are of what is going wrong. So this is actually a boot issue? Is there a log where this would have been written to and if so where? I'd like to recreate the issue and compare the log entries. We haven'...

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

Stick the SD card in another computer, edit config.txt and add the required line. That worked. However, any ideas why mine wouldn't boot through like the others? Also, could this have caused an issue where some, not all, devices stopped working intermittently? I have a wireless keyboard and mouse c...

Won't be a permanent solution as you will no longer get any upgrades to anything.
Even if I distro-upgrade etc?

What if mine is a different problem?

Did you try to workaround from my previous post?
I did not since I could never boot far enough to determine if mine was the same problem. Reverting back to a previous kernel did fix it (so far so good)

I also have been having problems since the update. My RPI4 4gb has had boot failures ever since update. If I put that SD card in my RPi3 it works without a problem. I've tested several SD cards with fresh installs but in every case as soon as I upgrade it fails boot and freezes. apt full-upgrade Rev...

Messenger Options?

Hello all. While I know this question has been asked over and over, the information I've been able to find is extremely old and not as helpful as I need. I'm transitioning to the RPi4 as a desktop replacement (so far so good) but I'm missing a working multi-protocol messaging client. I haven't been ...

Hello everyone. My name is Eric. I'm a tinkerer and maker at heart. I got involved in programming back in 1985 with BASIC, Fortran and Comal and didn't pick anything back up until 1998. Since then it's been a hobbyist mix of LAMP, Java and C+/+. When the Pi came out I knew I had to have one. Much of...
