BBB reseting to v1.9 on shutdown
« on: December 16, 2018, 07:01:52 PM »
I have a BBB as a remote controlling a 5x6 P10 matrix.  I have now setup and got everything working 2 times.  Each time that I shutdown the BBB and then restart it, it says it has reverted back to v1.9 of FPP and nothing works.  I can't connect to it via WiFi.  It only connects if I run Ethernet to it.  I then have to remove the SD card, reload everything, reconfigure everything and then it works.


On each shutdown, I push the shutdown button on the main page of FPP and the BBB shuts down.


Any ideas on what is going on?  I was using v2.5, but then tried v2.4 and v2.3.  Same thing happened.  I have not transferred the SD card to internal memory.  Should I do that?

Were you ever running v1.9 on the internal eMMC memory on the BBB?  It sounds like it is reverting and booting off the eMMC.

That is not "normal" for it. I have several BBBs that do have old FPP versions installed to eMMC but they reliably boot to v2.5 and v2.x-master on the uSD card. The "old" method to override was that you had to hold down one of the buttons to force a load from uSD instead of eMMC.

That was fixed (except for you?) with a new boot loader in v2.x and up.

So, yes, I would install to eMMC to stop that behavior.
