I'm not sure what the exact problem is.  I had an Overo Water that would not boot out of the box as well.  I spent 3 days trying to figure it out and in the end it was better to just make a new image and do that.  I don't have my boot log anymore but I had similar messages to yours.

Hi All,

I tried booting Overo Fire COM (with Palo 35) out of the box with the factory built image, but it won't boot. The boot process gets stuck at these log messages:

> 259. Turning echo off on /dev/ttyS1
> 260. /etc/rcS.d/S97blueprobe: line 5: can't open /dev/ttyS1: no such file
> 261. JFFS2 notice: (88) check_node_data: wrong data CRC in data node at 0x1f2fe028: read 0xdc984530, cal.

Here is the boot log that I see when I tried to boot my Overo : http://pastebin.com/8T7zLJwx

My setup: Overo Fire COM (GUM3503F-R3118) on Palo 35. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 as my dev machine. I use minicom to connect to the console mini USB port. Before connecting the console, I connected the LCD display to the Palo 35 board, and tried to boot. The display didn't show anything other than a blank white screen, and some flickering. So I did a hard shutdown (turned of the power), and then connected my dev machine to the console port. Line 261 shows some CRC data corruption, and (I think) it appeared because of the hard reboot. On some wiki pages I found that such notices are harmless; the corrupt node get repaired.

I came across this boot log (http://pastebin.com/cApFxYew). The image in this boot log is different, but the kernel version is same. This boot log gives the login prompt, so I used it to compare my boot log, and line 259 and line 260 (from my Overo boot log) appear in this boot log, so I think line 260 isn't the problem halting my Overo boot.

So I'm not sure why the Overo won't boot, and why it will just stop after line 261. I will try to reflash the firmware with factory built images and see if it resolves the issue.

Do you have any suggestions on what I should do, or any idea on what might be wrong? I'll appreciate any help.

Thank you
