Autoboot

Post by df5cl »

The Odroid-X was my 1st ARM machine and still bravely serves in my home network as wiki server.
But, with a power outage, the system doesn‘t reboot automatically. - I need to press the start button.

OS: Ubuntu server 12 or 13. - I can‘t check, because im remote and the board doesn‘t power-up automatically.

Question: Is there a possibility to enable autoboot with another bootloader or a magic sw switch?

Happy hackin‘
-Pit

ODROID-X was released 12 years ago in 2012, and we're glad you're still using it as a wiki server.
However, the hardware design was changed to add the Auto-Power-On feature from the launch of ODROID-X2 in '2013.
I'm sorry that there is no way to simply solve your problem.

Thank you very much for your instant reply!
So it is design based and got fixed with the successor.

The Odroid-X still deserves a good life with a clean power supply and happy users. -
I‘ll see if there are simple possibilities for firing-up the device remotely by means of a relay or alike.

Do you know by chance, if the power switch triggers the PMIC or the CPU?

Alternatively, I‘ll swap to one of my Odroid-U3 or -C2.
Still enough horse power for the wiki, I‘d guess. J

The power button on the ODROID-X board is connected to the PWR_ON pin of the PMIC.
Refer to the ODROID-X base board schematics.
