Thread: Firmware 1.9.2.7 CR9

  1. #16
    Hi,

    I discovered following minor bugs with my WL-HDD and FW release 1.9.2.7-9. Sorry that I post to the wrong sub-forum, but I'm pretty sure, there is no way to get an answer in the WL-HDD sub-forum...

    1. The RTC works with 1.9.2.7-9 on WL-HDD well, but I didn't found a way to eliminate following error message from the system log:
    Code:
    Mar 21 13:59:12 kernel: ***RTC BATTERY FAILURE***
    the battery is definitely OK and not faulty, 3,2 V measured

    2. The behaviour of the reset button has changed. I wanted to shut down my WL-HDD, but I couldn't. After pressing the reset button down and waiting a couple of seconds, till the power LED is off and releasing the button WL-HDD didn't go in OFF state - it made a restart!

    P.S./EDIT: On my other device WL-500gP the behaviour of the reset button is different, but either not like described in the 1.9.2.7-6 (last change of the reset behaviour) release note
    Code:
    Restore to defaults/shutdown are now called using RESTORE/RESET button as follows: 
    first 3 seconds - power LED on: release button to do nothing 
    next 5 seconds - power LED off: release button to "shutdown" 
    next 5 seconds - power LED blinking: release button to reset to defaults 
    start over
    the power LED starts to blink immediately (approx. 1 sec) after pressing the reset button down. Of course I didn't want to set my device to default, so I waited several seconds till the power LED stopped blinking. There was no way to shut down the device with the reset button.

    P.P.S./EDIT2: ok, I must be blind, have not seen "Disabled "power off" for all units except WL-HDD" statement in the 1.9.2.7-7g release note. So please forget the WL-500gP issue, but WL-HDD does definitely restart instead of shut down.


    That's just my feedback to the new FW release.

    Regards

    Robert

    Well, this is just what RTC chip reports.

    2. The behaviour of the reset button has changed. I wanted to shut down my WL-HDD, but I couldn't. After pressing the reset button down and waiting a couple of seconds, till the power LED is off and releasing the button WL-HDD didn't go in OFF state - it made a restart!
    This is strange. Just checked with WL-700g: it halts using same code. Unfortunately I've no idea how to debug this. Nothing is changed in this path... Perhaps something is crashing during halt, causing a reboot... Someone should recompile my firmware and play with shutdown stuff. Personally I do not have wl-hdd, so I could not play with it.

    Actually I could prepare some test versions, but I need "interactive answers". If someone is ready to do the testing today - let me know.

    BTW, this is the last firmware which supports WL-HDD. In newer sources broadcom removed support for BCM4702 CPU.

    replaced scanner.o with the one from modules, works like a charm again. Thanks Oleg for the update of the firmware.

    cheers,

    So, WL-HDD owners.

    I've built 11 test versions: http://oleg.wl500g.info/wlhdd/

    Test one by one: flash, issue halt command and check if it really halts your unit or reboots. At first try 9.1.1 and 9.1.12. If both reboots, let me know and don't flash other firmwares...

    Find out which versions work and which does not and let me know your findings.

    Hello Oleg,

    thank you for fast reaction and for support! I'm ready to test the FW files and to give you answers due to power down issue.

    I tested the first two firmwares 9.1.1 and 9.1.2 (I think 9.1.12 was a typo?)

    9.1.1 doesn't reboot but it doesn't go in power down either. After holding the reset button down for a couple of seconds the power LED goes off, but the WLAN LED stays on and WL-HDD stays in this state (power LED = off, WLAN LED = on) and doesn't do anything else. I've tested it twice.

    9.1.2 has the same behaviour. Also tested twice.

    Should I go on with 9.1.3 - 9.1.11?

    Regards

    Robert

    Actually device halts, but does not turn some of the features off.

    We've to figure out which one is causing reboot.

    1.9.3 - same behaviour (no reboot, power LED = off, WLAN LED = on), flashing 1.9.4 ...

    1.9.4 - same behaviour (no reboot, power LED = off, WLAN LED = on), flashing 1.9.5 ...

    1.9.5 - same behaviour (no reboot, WLAN LED stays on), trying 1.9.6 ...

    1.9.6 - same behaviour (no reboot, WLAN LED stays on), trying 1.9.7 ...

    1.9.7 - same behaviour (no reboot, WLAN LED stays on), trying 1.9.8 ...

    1.9.8 - same behaviour (no reboot, WLAN LED stays on), trying 1.9.9 ...

    1.9.9 - same behaviour (no reboot, WLAN LED stays on), trying 1.9.10 ...

    Yes, I think, I've got it! 1.9.10 makes reboot. Which feature could make problems in this version?
