iMX6 SabreLite board Android issue : surfaceFlinger service crash when HDMI is not connected

I m running Android 4.3 on BD-SL-i.MX6 ( http://boundarydevices.com/product/sabre-lite-imx6-sbc/ )

 

It is working properly when HDMI monitor is connected, but if I boot without HDMI connected then surfaceFlinger crashes during bootup and board reboots on it own (probably by watchdog)

 

How to prevent this crash ? Why is surfaceFlinger service dependent of HDMI ? I have to develop a Camera video streaming project based on Android without any display.

 

PS : Android version I'm using is http://boundarydevices.com/jb-4-3-ga-mx6/
