Hello all,

We have custom boards with imx6 quad processor with android jelly bean running on 3.0.35 kernel with SATA boot , size 30 gb .  After using the board for some time we are getting a SATA corruption messages, the errors are different for different boards, like eg


EXT4-fs error (device sda4): ext4_lookup:1044: inode #22: comm er.ServerThread: deleted inode referenced: 69

Aborting journal on device sda4-8.

We getting stuck in this error. Due to these errors the displays hangs at splash screen with no android UI prompt .All the errors indicate that the SATA cards are getting corrupted. Is there any error with the JB android /  kernel/ anything  which is causing this corruption?

Kindly advice , also suggest solutions if any.
