Android 7 reboot loop during init

Question asked by Tim Gruijters on Jun 28, 2018
Latest reply on Jul 23, 2018 by Diego Adrian Cuevas

Dear sir / madam,


We're currently developing a device based on the i.MX6 Solo CPU. This device runs U-Boot, Android 7.1.1 and Linux 4.9. The kernel is taken from the NXP GIT repository, as instructed in the Android User Guide. The root file system is a RAM file system (ramdisk.img wrapped with mkimage). For this device, I've used sabresd_6dq as a basic configuration.


The system now hangs in a reboot cycle which it can't escape. I've disabled the watchdog and SELinux to ensure that they weren't causing the problem. This is the kernel log:

I would like to have some help in figuring out why the device keeps rebooting. I'm currently clueless on how to solve the problem. Did anyone experienced this or a comparable problem?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

With kind regards,
Tim

 

EDIT:
The question was previously about the same reboot-loop, but I thought it was caused by SELinux. This is incorrect because the errors in the logs came from the NFS mount. I've changed this thread not to mislead other users. The following error is for historical reasons:

[ 6.578464] init: SELinux: Could not set context for /init: Operation not supported on transport endpoint
