Apologies if this is off topic. I'm running pieeprom-2020-06-03.bin on two different RPi 4s, one with 4Gig the other 8Gig. The 4Gig one is working perfectly, but the 8Gig one is showing badly corrupted video in Chromium. Can I revert to the non-beta firmware or reload whatever drives the video accelleration, or...?
I'm still struggling with this. I tried switching back to

Code: Select all

FIRMWARE_RELEASE_STATUS="critical"
and doing...

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-eeprom-update -d -f /lib/firmware/raspberrypi/bootloader/critical/pieeprom-2020-04-16.bin
(and rebooting), but videos in Chromium are still totally corrupted.

Is it possible that the hardware is actually bad?

Status update... Got new modules through rpi-update. Still losing the task bar for log in IDs other than 'pi'.
Still the wrong thread to be discussing this on. If you really want to get someone's attention, open a bug on https://github.com/RPi-Distro/repo, or start a new thread with an appropriate title.
It only happens on a Pi that has the beta software for USB MSD booting. This implies that there is at least a correlation, and thus, on topic as a bug.

It's not the hardware. It turns out

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update
is not (currently at least) your friend.

Regardless, I'm fixed. YouTube video is working. I'm booting off the SSD.

No, you are off-topic. This thread is specifically for bootloader bugs, not problems with the OS. Read the OP!

Please try to keep the discussion relevant to USB mass storage boot or new bootloader features (SELF_UPDATE, NETCONSOLE etc) and not other firmware issues (i.e. things that happen before the rainbow splash screen) otherwise, important bug reports might get lost in the noise.
In other words, problems that happen AFTER the rainbow splash screen are NOT bootloader issues and should not be cluttering this thread.

The USB-MSD works great, except for a keyboard problem using the following setup.
- Flashed with beta pieeeprom.bin date 2020-06-03.
- Used rpi-imager to put Raspberry Pi OS full on a Samsung 128GB EVO U3 SD card.
- Copied *.dat and *.elf date 2020-05-27 to the SD card.
- Boot with SD card in a Transend USB3.0 adapter on an USB3 port
- Updated software

I use a Rapoo wireless keyboard E9070 and mouse 9060MS combo, with the receiver in an USB2 port. I have to type really slow, otherwise characters are skipped.
A Logitech wireless keyboard K270 and mouse M185 combo, works fine.
When I put the SD card in the microSD slot than the Rapoo keyboard works fine.
When I put an USB hub in an USB2 port than the Rapoo keyboard works fine.

With an Crucial MX100 256GB SSD and a SATA to USB3 adaptor the problem with the Rapoo keyboard is the same.

I had the same problem with my logitech K400 + keyboard, I solved it by putting a small USB extension cable

Glad to hear USB boot works, Linux resets the PCI hardware and uses the regular USB stack so it's really something for a different thread. You might want to look at viewtopic.php?t=84999 usbhid.mousepoll=0

That step is not needed. The required *.elf &*.dat files are now available from apt, so a normal sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y will install them (which also means future updates won't break your system). Just boot from the SD card and update the software before cloning it to a USB drive.

USB 3.0 is known to cause interference on the 2.4GHz wireless band, and that's a popular frequency for wireless keyboard and mouse (as well as WiFi and Bluetooth). Other computers have had this problem as well (including some expensive Macbook models), although the small size and bare-bones nature of the Pi probably doesn't help. As someone above said, the solution is to put the dongle on a shielded USB extension cable.

I have several adapters with ASMedia controllers that have a VID:PID of 174c:55aa and they all boot from USB 3.0 with UAS enabled (no quirks required), although some older ones didn't support TRIM until I updated their firmware (which is hard to find).

This Eluteng USB 3.0 to SATA-III adapter cable (Amazon USA link / Amazon UK link) works out of the box with UAS and TRIM. The old version of this adapter with a black SATA connector also boots fine, but needs a firmware update for TRIM.
.
.
So from my experience, the Eluteng adapter cable I linked above is the one to get. If you want to hunt down ASMedia firmware updates and the flashing utility there are others that can have TRIM fixed (or if you are using HDD then TRIM, quirks and UAS doesn't really matter).
I've bought 10 of these Eluteng adapters from UK Amazon this year (April - July) and they've all been as HawaiianPi noted above - using the ASMedia chipset and with a VID:PPID of 174c:55aa.

However, I've just purchased two more (same UK Amazon link, end of September) and they've got a JMicron Technology JMS567 SATA 6Gb/s bridge within. Their VID:PID is 152d:0578 and they most definitely do not support UAS. They need quirks to operate when plugged into a USB3 socket.

The product description says they support UASP, so they'll be going back. Incidentally, the colour of the SATA socket is blue, just like all the ones with the ASMedia chipset.

So be careful when buying, and check what you get.
