Ubuntu 18.04 system upgrade hanging

Unread postby pbox » Tue Oct 02, 2018 9:46 pm

New to this forum but have been using my C-2 for quite a while without issues...

Recently, nudged by the Ubuntu system (I normally use Debian on most of my computers) on the Odroid to upgrade the system to the new release, I followed and eventually got stuck on the reboot screen showing that the kernel cannot start serialization file and the system is read-only!

Well, I downloaded the android-4.4.4-alpha-5.8-sd2emmc_installer-odroidxu4-20171026.img.zip file (since I could not find a similar Ubuntu image), loaded it onto a micro card without issues, inserted the card into the C-2 slot but cannot find the 'boot media selector' switch! The available documentation points to SW1 which I have found on the reverse (bottom side) of the C-2 but it's just the inscription and I can't see the switch. Some people point to the right (shorter) side of the HDMI socket but I can't find it there either.

In a nutshell, I am stuck at what to do next to solve the issue and start using my Odroid C-2 again. I would appreciate your kind help, please... :-)

There is no boot selector switch on the C2, that is on the XU4.

If you have both eMMC and SD present the device will boot from eMMC.

You're having trouble trying to boot an XU4 image on a C2? I would think that you should use a C2 image instead. You should probably have posted this in a C2 thread as well.

Moved from XU4 to C2 sub-forum.
