XU4 v151 upgrade broke system

I did apt-get update/upgrade this morning and linux-image-3.10.105+ was on the list so I installed. The system then wouldn’t boot, no flashing blue LED. I planned to restore from a backup and found my 3 month old 32GB eMMC had failed. I rebuilt the system on an SD card and restored from backup. On doing the upgrade, again the system wouldn’t boot. I have rebuilt the system again and put this package on hold and all working fine again.

Why would this update break the system?


PS running kernel 4.9

Hi John:

Yep, probably best to do the restore again, then hold the packages above to prevent 3.x overwriting 4.9.

If you want to fix no boot going from 4.9 > 3.x, copy the exynos5422-odroidxu3.dtb to exynos5422-odroidxu4.dtb in /boot.
