Dragonboard 410c Reboot problem of Android


#1

Android system is 6.0.1. After operation of ~10hours, the system restarts. From the logcat, global reference table of system server is full.
I reduce the global reference table size to 2560 in order to make it happen faster (~10mins) without any active apps running. Below is the logcat.

It seems java.lang.ref.WeakReference (1633) are the main cause but I have no idea where they are from. Could anyone advise how I can debug it?

Thanks in advance!


#2

Hi,

I run SD card Android Image build #118 with a downloaded app “Wifi analyzer” running over the last weekend and the reboot problem also happens. It seems the root cause is inside the Android system. Do anyone have hints to debug it?

Thanks in advance!


#3

I’m not going to claim much expertise in diagnosing Android problems but I’d be interested to know if the new #128 snapshot build (http://builds.96boards.org/snapshots/dragonboard410c/qualcomm/android/128/ ) exhibits the same problem.


#4

Hi danielt,

I reduce the global reference table size for #128 and Android can run for 1 hours without reboot, comparing with ~10mins with #118. The problem seems gone. Anyway, I will test the original #128 overnight and tell the result tomorrow.

I used DB410C_build.sh to download AOSP last time. Could you please advise the command details how I download the branch/tag of #128?

Thanks a lot!


#5

Hi danielt,

The dragonboard has run for over 18 hours without reboot problem. It seems the problem has gone with #128.
I download the following BSP from codeaurora.org but the reboot problem still persists.
March 02, 2017 LA.BR.1.2.7-05610-8x16.0 msm8916_64 LA.BR.1.2.7-05610-8x16.0.xml 06.00.01

Could you please tell which one is #128?

Thanks in advance!


#6

I believe it is built from vLA.BR.1.2.7-01010-8x16.0-4 (available here: https://developer.qualcomm.com/hardware/dragonboard-410c/tools ).


#7

Hi danielt,

I find that the source-manifest.xml in build #128 is exactly the same as the one I am using which is downloaded from la.br.1.2.7-01010-8x16.0. Could you please tell what the difference is between build #128 and la.br.1.2.7-01010-8x16.0?

Thanks a lot!


#8

The exact versions that contribute to the build should be in the pinned-manifest.xml.


#9

Hi danielt,

The pinned-manifest.xml shows that revision number is different in 10 folders. e.g. in pinned-manifest.xml,

in my manifest.xml,

When I run “git log --oneline” under device/qcom/common, the output is as follow,
3edfb88 USB camera patch-permissions changes
3eb4cdf device:qcom:common USB to Ethernet patch
1d4c2f7 Merge “IMS-VT: Handle buttons display in InCall Screen”

I do not see the revision “6ef0f58274a9cdf1c4af9bd395e5e39957353ec4”.

I also run “git fetch” but see no difference. Am I missing something or doing wrong in git? Could you please advise how I find the target revision and pull it to my local repository?

Many thanks!
