Hey guys,

I have configured Android 9 for our custom board based on Sabresd board.It is booting properly, I am also able to see the android display.

But in the log I keep getting healthd status lines. There should be a command line after booting is complete right(Similar to Linux)?

I required the command line.

I am a novice and this is my first time dealing with AOSP, so please help in debugging this issue. 

Regards,

Himanshu

Hello Himanshu,

 

After booting up you should be able to see a prompt on the console. However, sometimes there are messages on the console that may obscure this prompt. Are you cable to send an enter and enter commands or is the message shown persistent? While this is happening, is Android running correctly on the display?

I am not able to enter any command in the prompt. The heallthd message keeps the prompt busy. 

I found a question with the same issue as mine. Please check its log, it is same as mine. Question

Hi gusarambula‌,

The solutions given in the other question rely on having a prompt in the first place. I am not able to enter any command after booting. So I cannot change my login level as suggested in the other question.

Hello Himanshu,

The problem is that those messages from the services keep populating the prompt so there is no chance to enter any commands. I was looking at the thread you suggested and it would seem that you would need to make some changes to the services running like those mentioned here: https://community.nxp.com/thread/517067

 

Since you cannot do it through the command prompt you may change the init.rc and other files using adb to connect to the board while running Android. There are some threads that mention how to run adb, and while they are focused on our boards and BSP it should also work for AOSP.

 

My apologies for the inconvenience.

Regards,
