[Rock Pi 4] USB storage is flaky on USB 3 OTG port

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am using Armbian_19.11.3_Rockpi-4b_buster_current_5.3.11_desktop.

 

Facing issue when trying to use USB devices in the upper USB 3 port on a Rock Pi 4 v1.3. This port also supports USB OTG. The switch is set to Host mode.

The storage is detected occasionally, while most of the time it does not work.

 

dmesg contains no reference to the connected storage:

$ dmesg | grep usb

It works with the Radxa Debian Stretch image with Linux 4.4.154-99-rockchip-g5b699a48544d:

So I am guessing its a kernel issue.

 

Thanks for your work.

And It most likely also works with Armbian with Linux 4.4.y ... This is the correct way to compare.

Yes. Modern kernel needs lots of development and porting to match the level of the kernel where this hardware support was initially developed. This can take years.

Agree. Will check.

I understand. I reported so that we know this problem is present with current kernels. And experienced community members can help to diagnose and fix it.

 

Thanks.

 

Edit-

I confirm that it works with the Armbian legacy kernel (4.4.198-rockchip64).
