Banana Pi BPI-W2 Shutdown


#1

We’re having an issue trying to shut down our Banana PI BPI-W2 board elegantly. From the terminal, if we issue the “poweroff” command, the procedure hangs in a very similar fashion to this thread

http://52.88.66.112/t/how-to-poweroff-bpi-w2-normally/7431

Same image, same file system corruption on shutdown, same everything. We saw that there hasn’t been any updates to that the thread in 6 months, and we were wondering if a solution was ever found.

It looks like SinoVoip has abandoned the Banana Pi W2. I don’t know if you get reply from creator of Banana Pi.

You should look for R64. If I’m not in failure, R64 supports 3,5" HDD.
