Is that the right executable?
On ubuntu it's a regular file

Same thing happens if I try to reboot with Healthcheck or CleaN900.
If someone has a solution please say to me. Thank you
Same issue here since KP49... Additionally I need to say that 1 time out of 10 the device reboots instead of shutting down

Anyway on another thread a user said this issue could be related with kernel-power-settings that messes up when loading custom settings on startup, but I'm not sure about that (the user actually had problems in booting up the device, anyway could be a similar issue).

From your desktop, notebook, or whatever:

flasher-3.5 --set-rd-flags=force-power-key

Problem solved.

In case You're wondering, it isn't reflash - it just set r&d flag (not even full r&d mode) to always return bootreason as pwr_key. As side effect, reboot->shutdown problem is fixed.

Thank you, anyway it seems to me a workaround that does not resolve the problem -> system hangs trying to reboot...

Is it known why does it happen?

No idea, for me it *never* hangs on reboot, with force-power-key.

Hi Estel, there is one showstopper: the keyboard is always slightly illuminated on my device even with the keyboard-slider shut, what will have negative impact on battery life.
Any idea about it?

Output of flasher is:

Code:
rhm9bw@domp:/var/lib/vdr$ sudo flasher-3.5 --query-rd-mode
flasher v2.5.2 (Oct 21 2009)

USB device found found at bus 001, device address 069.
Found device RX-51, hardware revision 2101
NOLO version 1.4.14
Version of 'sw-release': RX-51_2009SE_21.2011.38-1_PR_MR0
The device is in R&D mode
R&D flags (0x0100): force-power-key

Strange, are You sure that You haven't explicitly enabled R&D mode, before?

On my device, enabling force-power-key flag doesn't result in any other symptom of R&D (other than wrench key in boot screen), i.e. no keyboard flickering on activity, and definitely no diodes behind keyboard lit, when screen isn't slided out.

I can't comment on it much, as it's my first 1st hand experience with R&D flags or mode at all (!) - never had need for using it. Maybe someone more experienced with R&D could explain it?

reboot/shutdown is a bit flaky here as well. sometimes reboot works, other times it don't. shutdown, from power menu, is usually ok but sometimes results in the device rebooting instead.

Hmm that's strange indeed- another symptom of R&D on my device is that on the white startscreen, a toolbox is displayed and the kernelversion is prompted.

How about yours?

Only toolbox, (in fact it's Nokia 7xx/N8xx and wrench on it), no mentions of kernel version.
