Hello,

We are using  i.MX6Q,  rev 1.2

I am attemptig to install OTA package using "recovery".

I copied the OTA_pkg.zip in /cache directory and then ran "adb reboot recovery"

It enters the REcovery mode, finds the command file that I have created for recovery but then recovery get killed by signal 11 and enters in this loop. From the logs:


init: Starting service 'recovery'...
init: Service 'recovery' (pid 217) killed by signal 11
init: Service 'recovery' (pid 217) killing any children in process group
init: Untracked pid 218 exited with status 1
init: Starting service 'recovery'...
init: Service 'recovery' (pid 219) killed by signal 11
init: Service 'recovery' (pid 219) killing any children in process group
init: Untracked pid 220 exited with status 1
init: Starting service 'recovery'...

Could you please help.

We need t use recovery mode for software installation

Thanks,

Nishi

Hi @nishigandha patil;

 

Can you please confirm following points:

1) Based on message "init: Service 'recovery' (pid 217) killed by signal 11", I think issue may be related to package.

Are you using which OTA package? Your custom package or any reference package comes with NXP's android source code(do "make otapackage" in android source code to generate ota package).

Can you please try for default ota package once?

 

2) Does your OTA packages only not working with Android 7.1.2 Nougat? Did you tried for any latest Android version?

 

Thanks.

Rakesh

Hi nishigandha patil,

Hope you have tried to update OTA by following steps :

  • Copy the OTA zip package to the device in sdcard using below command :

        $adb push <local> <remote "/sdcard">

  • Move the package from sdcard to cache partition i.e.

       $mv /sdcard/<your zip> /cache/.

  • Make the directory and perform the below steps on device

 

  • mkdir -p /cache/recovery
  • touch /cache/recovery/command
  • echo "--update_package=/cache/update.zip" > /cache/recovery/command
  • reboot recovery

Above steps will perform the Updation by Android recovery (automatically).

Let me know if you still face any error.
