4.1.6 Image/Kernel not working on Cubietruck?

Question

Hi there,

 

i needed to recreate my cubietruck as a VDR with a brand new image. I´ve choose the plain http://mirror.igorpecovnik.com/Armbian_4.2_Cubietruck_Debian_jessie_4.1.6.zip image to install but after booting it got stuck at "Welcome to Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)!" and after many minutes " (TIME) Time out waiting for device dev-ttyS0 device. (DEPEND) Dependency failed for Serial Getty on ttyS0." appears. I downloaded the 3.4.108 kernel image which installed and ran ok apart of that the USB connection dropped after a while which is a problem for my VDR: 

[ 8.301636] eth0: PHY ID 001cc915 at 0 IRQ 0 (sunxi_gmac-0:00) active

[20316.697345] usb 2-1: usbfs: process 584 (mediasrv) did not claim interface 0 before use

i decided to try the 4.1.4 kernel from Igors kernel repository updating the Kernel from the running system as mentioned in the FAQs but it got stuck at exactly the same situation as mentioned with the 4.1.6 image i tested initially.

 

At the end of the day any kernel would be ok if the USB device stays connected. My cubietruck Powersupply is 2.5A (HNP15-USB) and the DVB-S Stick (Sundtek) also has his own additional power supply so i don´t believe in a HW issue right now.

 

What can i do to bring back the system to live? I don´t think there is any grub/lilo installed to boot the 3.4 kernel? Any idea of why the 4.x kernels don´t run on my Cubietruck? I am pretty sure Igor tested them on his Trucks :-) Thanks for any hint! OMA

(TIME) Time out waiting for device dev-ttyS0 device. 

Kernel 4.x and Jessie.

 

This problems occur one some boards. Dunno why. It's working fine on my Cubietruck.

 

One solution is to power cycle but if this won't help ... choose Wheezy or Trusty, try also to boot bare board, without anything on USB.
