well, those boards draw little power, so it doesnt make much sense to turn them off. also, if you want to reboot to boot menu you can use 'goresc1' command via adb/ssh/uart (1.2.7+)

I think an easier method would be an app such as Power Off. Would you consider such an app in the default setup as I believe people will find it usefull and it may be a safer bet for avoiding corrupted sdcard.

Hello All,

Just wanted to let you know we will be releasing H3Droid version 1.2.7 here shortly and give you an overview of what you can expect!  

This is a pretty major release and adds some new features! Most importantly H3resc (more to come on this upon release!), USB automount is fixed, support for FriendlyArm H3 boards and an easier installation process!

New in version 1.2.7:
- Changed aoe.ko (and few serial modules) to builtin
- New fex: nanopim1+ (untested) (gmac support only)
- Installer: upgrade mode (preserves partition layout and UDISK content)
- Installer: several fixes to workaround distros differences
- Recompiled with current uboots:
nanopi_m1, nanopi_m1_plus, nanopi_neo, nanopi_neo_air, orangepi_2,
orangepi_lite, orangepi_one, orangepi_pc, orangepi_pc_plus, orangepi_plus,
orangepi_plus2e, orangepi_zero, Sinovoip_BPI_M2_Plus
- Updated rc.local calling to prevent deadlocks
- Added H3resc with boot menu (hold power key on boot): shell, change uboot/fex/boot.cmd, update h3droid from usbdrive/internet, wipe user data
- USB Automount should work on all ports now
- Fixed shell jni path to allow java tools usage
- Added slip(builtin), rtl2830.ko and few others
- Removed g_android and enabled other g_* modules
- Initial resolution set to 1920x1080

As you can see there is a lot to look forward to!  We have just a little more testing to do and you should see 1.2.7 out within the next 4-24 hours, so keep checking back!


As always, please feel free to provide feedback here on the forum, on our feedback form or come chat with us on IRC in #H3Droid on Freenode!


Thanks again to everyone who has provided their time and support to H3Droid!




Cheers!

Hi Just tried out the new 27 update and its running great on my opi+2e, noticed speed improvement and better display straight away.

Please disregard my earier post about power button not working. It was me having an idiot moment and confusing the fex button and power button.

Loving your work.

Hello. It's very nice to see that you've also implemented Orange Pi Zero uboot file and the H3Resc menu in the latest version.
However, I have problems running it on my board.

So the Orange Pi Zero board doesn't have a dedicated power button, the only way to switch it off/on is by plugging the power source in/out.
However, every time I want to boot H3Droid on the board, the system thinks that I'm holding the power button (which does not exist), and automatically boots into H3Resc.
There is just no way to boot into the actual Android system, because the reboot command (either the "reboot to resc" and the simple "reboot" option) also takes me back to the rescue menu.

Hello @robi217

Actually we have seen this bug before, since you are already in rescue this should be easy to fix.

First select #25 from the H3resc menu, then make the following modification:

if test "${bootlinu}" = "1"; then
TO
if test "${bootlinu}" = "2"; then

Save (which should auto rebuild it for you)  and then reboot the board.  This should take you into H3Droid instead of H3resc.   The only downfall is you will not be able to enter H3resc again without mounting the card in another system or inside Android and reverting the changes to boot.cmd.

If you have any problems with this, please visit us on IRC!

Cheers!
