Power On/Off switch
You can control power supplying to ODROID-C2 while DC adaptor is connected with external switch, Sliding or Toggle Switch for example, if you connect such switch to J4 on the board. J4 is connected to NCP372 (Protection IC). There is an ENABLE pin on the NCP372 and it is a low-active and have an internal pull-down resistor for default on.
|Switch status||Output of NCP372|
With this hacking, we strongly recommend to shutdown the O/S completely before turn-off. Otherwise the file system could be corrupted very easily. In Linux, for example, please make sure to execute shutdown -r now or poweroff.
Alternative power input
The J8 pins are added for an alternative power input (for easier wiring/soldering to power supply cable on PCB rev0.2 20160226)
Alternative heartbeat LED
If you want to remap the blue heartbeat LED to other GPIO, refer this great instruction.
IR Remote Controller (Android)
The IR remote key map is defined in /system/etc/remote.conf file.
Default IR protocol is NEC type.
USB Hub IC reset script
If you need to do power-cycle to the USB devices on the USB host ports, run below commands.
It will reset all the USB devices connected to the USB host ports.
echo 126 > /sys/class/gpio/export echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio126/direction sleep 1 echo 0 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio126/value sleep 1 echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio126/value echo 126 > /sys/class/gpio/unexport sleep 1
USB Hub IC issue
Every power cycle, the USB hub controller is disconnecting the USB devices at among 5~7 second after starting the boot process.
If you use a fast booting OS like Buildroot, Yocto and Ubuntu-Minimal, your USB devices will not work correctly.
To avoid this issue, you need to run your USB application software slightly later after complete the booting process.
Here is an example of the serious problem. Unfortunately, we couldn't find any workaround yet.
