I'm using an imx6slevk board with 512 MB DDR which hangs at boot time saying

 

EXT4-fs (mmcblk1p2): re-mounted. Opts: (null)
[ OK ] Reached target Paths.
[ OK ] Reached target Host and Network Name Lookups.
[ OK ] Listening on Journal Socket (/dev/log).

[ OK ] Mounted Kernel Debug File System.
[ OK ] Mounted Temporary Directory (/tmp).

 

I'm guessing its galcore that creates the problem here is there a way to avoid galcore?

 

on disabling I2c1 which has pmic regulators tied to it the board boos completely.

 

A few hours later I enbled i2c1 and flashed only the compiled kernel and dtb (no rootfs) using mfg tool this time the board boots fine and everything works fine.

 

Now I reflashed the images with rootfs and the board hangs again.

What could be causing this strange behavior?
