Ze complete Odroid troubleshooting guide

Post by Teddy »

[Guide caters more for Odroid U3 and owners of a Windows machine]

Hi everyone, when I got my first Odroid, I spent about 2 weeks trying to get it to work, and much of the time was spent scouring these forums for tips that could help get it working. I thought it would be helpful if all these suggestions were in one place, especially for other newbies much like myself. So, based on my experience troubleshooting with my U3, I present this guide! I hope it you'll find it useful!

It's a very nice lookup.. sadly we still don't have an FAQ, where this would be a very nice topic for..
Anyway i have a few comments to your steps, don't feel offended :)
  • Waiting 10 minutes for the first boot, should only apply to ODROID C1, i've never heard of any other board that took that long to boot
  • Appendix 1 also only applies to the C1, other ODROIDs don't have that issue (at least i never heard of it)
  • That's just something that personally nagging me.. not everyone has or uses a "WI-FI" Router.. there are plenty of Router out there and not every one of them is a Wi-Fi router, also saying "plug in a cable (wire) in your wireless router" kinda sounds strange, don't you think? or is that just me? :D
    In fact, I had a long time only a Wi-Fi AP which doesn't even had LAN ports (besides the one to connect itself to the network)
    And also my router, is an ODROID, and no, it does not have Wi-Fi ;)
  • Appendix 3... this page is really really slow for many people and also it only hosts text files with links to the actual server where the images are located.
    I think it would be better to directly link to that server and the mirror that exists.
  • mini SD? WTF, i never heard of this before, that was really something new for me :D
    yet alone that there are adapters for micro to mini SD.. i only know micro SD to standard SD.. I don't even think my multi card reader has any slot that fits a mini SD o_O
  • Appendix 5, there's also an ODROID XU http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=2800
    And the ODROID X2 which still many have and an ODROID X which still some user use, but i think the X2 and X can use the recovery tool for the U2/U3 maybe that should be mentioned at least..
Anyway.. nice troubleshooting guide... good work :)

Hey! Thanks for the constructive feedback! Its one of the things I like most about the Odroid community. I'll try and edit what I can. By the way, I had the to short the HDMI and micro USB port on my U3 to get the HDMI working. I guess I'm a first. Do feel free to add more protips so others can benefit!
