Re: Raspberry Pi 4 VL805 firmware release 0138a1

On 8GB the small USB port power off initiated by hardware is simply extended (unless you have USB_MSD_PWR_OFF_TIME=0) so there is only one power off. Thanks for this, my HDDs are very grateful! Now there is no Reset USB port-power 1000 ms line with 8GB modell, and there are no secondary power cuts ...

The firmware upgrade utility is an x86 Windows binary, and there is no any tool that compatible with Linux. Sorry.

Re: Recommendations for USB SATA adaptor for booting from SSD

... It seems the main difference between the two adapters is the 1153 lacks sata 3 support and perhaps some energy saving features of the E version. Will the asm1153 accept firmware designed for the asm1153E ? Kendrak mentions the “ 140509_A1_82_40.bin “ and the “141126_A1_EE_82 “ firmwares (both o...

The CM4 is already exists, I'm sure because the latest bootloader EEPROM image is compatible with it. It just hasn't been launched yet.

I normally get newer kernel versions rebased and running. But it's low priority. There's really only a handful of users who build the latest trees from source. So 5.8 kernel is on my list of things that would be nice to do (but it's a long list). We really appreciate your work. I think it's importa...

Re: when will Raspberrypi kernel version v5.8 rise up be created

I think you're talking about the raspberrypi/linux Github repo. The latest branch is currently 5.7, and you can expect the 5.8 just immediately before or after the release of the stable version.

Re: Pi4 8Gb No Serial Console

EEPROM config:
BOOT_UART=0 -> BOOT_UART=1

config.txt:

Code: Select all

uart_2ndstage=1
Then the Linux kernel will be loaded and takes the control. So you will see the output and you will be able to log in.

If you can't find the Eluteng cable-style adapter, then just try to get a StarTech one instead, with ASM1153E or ASM1351 chipset. For example, I bought several from eBay.
