[SOLVED] Quick Question

Post by BactaTankAddict »

Is it possible to break your Odroid GO Advance by inserting an sd card with a messed up img into it? Let's say maybe the img didnt flash onto the sd card properly and goes hay wire on the OGA. And the sd card goes full on Tasmanian devil and you are no longer able to use your OGA anymore... Random question ik..

If you can build a special custom kernel device drivers to make a short circuit conditions with internal GPIO connections, you can probably cause an electrical shock to the key components on the motherboard.
But it seems to be very hard to implement the malware until you fully understand the entire schematics and device drivers.

Do any of the already existing builds for OGA have any bugs similar to this?

If you're having yroubles booting, boot without an sd card and you should see fhe boot splash and no card message. If you boot with A or B (or X or Y, I forget) pressed, you get into diagnostic mode and you can check screen/keys.
