Re: STICKY: USB-MSD boot EEPROM third update - 2020-06-15

So let me get this straight: USB312SAT3CB is compatible with RPI4B but is NOT compatible with RPI3B+? As I said, I tried to boot LibreELEC on the RPI3B+, it did the initial resizing of a partition task when booting the first time. I got to the part where it count down from 15 and then attempted to ...

Yes, this is one of the most recommended adapters. But I think the ASM1153E is more popular because of its price.

Re: Pi 4: 4k resolution OK, 60 Hz NOT.

You must enable 4Kp60 output by setting the hdmi_enable_4kp60=1 flag in config.txt . This flag can also be set using the Raspberry Pi Configuration tool within the desktop environment. In addition, it may be necessary to activate HDMI 2.0 on the TV. On Samsung, this is the HDMI UHD Color setting, an...

Kendek from you experience what firmware recommend for ASM1153E with UNMAP/TRIM support:
140509_A1_82_40 or 141126_A1_EE_82 or maybe another if it is available ?
thank you
Both of these firmware versions are good and stable, but I'm using the first one.

Nothing unusual, just check and update the contents of the following files on the USB HDD:

Not sure what you are asking here. You can already install that manually if you want (I have it on my system).
Yes, but no with 8GB Pi4 without dedicated VLI EEPROM.

Re: STICKY: USB-MSD boot EEPROM third update - 2020-06-12

Setting it to zero should not power cycle the USB ports during reboot (not that it mattered to me before). SSD users may don't hear a difference, but SSDs are more sensitive to hard power cuts than mechanical disks. Hdparm -Y (sleep mode / safely shut down completely) or -y (standby mode / safely s...

Now with 8GB Pi4 there is only one USB power cut (which is manageable), and nada with 4GB (which is perfect). Which power cut is that? Linux USB init? With 8GB Pi4 (1.4, empty SD card slot), after the reboot command the USB power will cut off, simultaneously with the RPi's power LED. See my video o...

Re: USB-MSD boot EEPROM update - 2020-06-12

I've reluctantly added a new config (there are too many configs) USB_MSD_PWR_OFF_TIME which if zero disables power-off when the xHC is initialised. After some more interop tests, the default is 500 and the accepted range is between 250 and 1000. Thank you for that, the USB_MSD_PWR_OFF_TIME=0 works ...

Re: TRIM Question

... Does this mean to get the benefits of using TRIM that it needs to be run after each boot? ... After system boot, all free space will be marked for trimming, because the OS doesn't know which blocks have been trimmed previously. But the SSD controller ignores the blocks that are already trimmed.

Re: Raspberry Pi 4B UAS compatible external drive enclosure - system response and transfer speeds.

Don't forget about the TRIM/UNMAP. The ASM1153E is capable, but you will probably need a firmware update. There are two compatible firmware; 140509_A1_82_40 and 141126_A1_EE_82. I'm using the first one with StarTech SATA to USB Cable.
