Odroid XU4 keeps crashing

Post by Ndonio »

Hello,
my XU4 kept running stable, but for the moment it is unusable. It keeps crashing several times a day, complete freezes, stuck applications or GUI. No error messages. In BOINC it produces a lot of invalid work units. If I reduce workload or clock down a little it is more stable. I assume an hardware fault.
I tried this:
Installed Ubuntu fresh on new eMMC Card
Tried another PSU

Is there an hardware/memory testing tool available to check the XU4?

Thanks for your help,
Ndonio.

It is very hard to find a root cause if there is no system log file or error messages.

Have you used this official 5V/4A PSU?

There is no specific testing tool.
We've just run stress-ng --cpu 8 --cpu-method matrixprod command for a few hours when we needed to check system stability.
Try it after running sudo apt install stress-ng.

If you used a different PSU I suspect this may be the cause. XU4 really requires those 4A, and not merely a PSU with 4A written on a sticker. :)

I bought a new official PSU for the ODROID, but unfortunately my Odroid is indeed broke. I need to purchase a new one.

Don't put it off, they are almost gone and won't be coming back.
