Rasbian RPi 4 kodi unable to create gui dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d

Wed Aug 12, 2020 5:56 am

(Resolved)
Hello! Comrades, help. There is an RPi 4 connected to a TV (Samsung UE46ES6550) by HDMI cable, Rasbian is installed on the RPI.
Installed Kodi, according to the forums and instructions, you need to add the dtoverlay = vc4-fkms-v3d parameter to config.txt.
When adding a parameter and loading Rasbian, I get a black TV screen (No signal). Without this parameter, the system boots, but kodi refuses to start. (unable to create gui )
Tell me, can anyone come across this issue.

config.txt:
disable_overscan=1
dtparam=audio=on
dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
max_framebuffers=2
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080
gpu_mem=256

Re: Rasbian RPi 4 kodi unable to create gui dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d

on my RPi4B-4G mine has been set by default
am still in previous kernel (4.19 something)
and enjoying watching video on my RPi4-8G's Kodi install.... (cloned from RPi4B-4G's microSD card)

Hi Balast,

Have you tried using the other HDMI port? I believe that the second port is not fully fuctional yet as it's still being worked on.

LTolledo, maybe you colud share your backup file with configuration that worked in your case, if you still have one saved? That would be a big help.

Kodi works fine on the RPi 4 with the default settings. You don't need to add anything to config.txt except for increasing the GPU memory, the recommend for the Pi 4 is gpu_mem=320. You have more information here: viewtopic.php?f=66&t=251645

One important thing is that if you are launching Kodi from the Desktop Environment, the user needs to belong to the sudo users and not have a password defined. I am not going into detail about that, but again, you can find more information on the link above.

my suggestion:

on another microSD card flash a fresh RPiOS32
boot from new microSD, finish initial install.
update and upgrade
then increase GPU memory (as recommended by Rascas)
then install Kodi
then try it.

if it works fine then
you may opt to copy the config to the other setup, or
install your other apps and copy your data to this new microSD so that its almost the same as your old one.

if it does not work then
you may try downgrading the kernel from 5.4 to 4.19

Raspbian OS not load with default settings, i get balck screeen on TV (no signal).
If I remove the following parameter from config.txt
dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
and then add this one -
hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080
the system starts working and I can see the rainbow and desktop.

Do you have instructions, how i can downgrade the kernel from 5.4 to 4.19?

Resolved!
At first I decided that the problem was in my TV and tried it on another TV and monitor, got the same result.
I bought a new HDMI cable and it worked, everything was decided by replacing HDMI.
This one was originally

Then I bought it and made money on this

Thanks to everyone who helped me.
