I've finally got this working as expected... Really enjoying the functionality of the HC1 unit.
PLEX seems to work 90% of the time.. I've got a few issues I assume are bandwidth/transcoding related. streaming to a chromecast, so I might need to get an AppleTV for bitstreaming from x264 (4k for 265)
Upgrading from 3 to 4 was giving me problems, but I think they were all related to the upgrade tool stopping half way, so it was in a working, but confused state...
I'm hoping a pure 4.x installation IMG is built soon so we don't need to spend the hour plus time upgrading debian from Jessie to Stretch
yesterday i got my new HC1. But I did not manage to boot it correct.
- I use Etcher to flash "OMV_3_0_92_Odroidxu4_4.9.61.img.xz" to a 16GB (new) SD Card (1x time flashed with my Mac , 1x time with win7)
- try to boot. Blue light is flashing; after some time it stop flashing ... and it boot again.
- on DHCP Server and with Networksniffer I was not able to see any IP
- Network Link is amber
- I also try "Armbian_5.37_Odroidxu4_Ubuntu_xenial_next_4.9.71" (same Issue)
Any Ideas how I can troubleshoot without a screen?
(sorry for my bad Eng)
Thank you for the fast response!
I used another Cable -> same Issue
I used another Port on the Switch (fritzbox) -> same Issue
I used a testnetwork with just a Router and PC -> same Issue
I config the Switch port to use only 100mbit (then the led turn green on HC1) -> same Issue
direct cabel between HC1 and PC nothing in wireshark.
try to mount the SD Card on the MAC (but I think the Filesystem is not supported; hoped to see some logs)
I was able to see two Partitions on the Card (67 MB and 860MB..)
Hm I running out of Idea's

Well, if the blue led is showing 'heartbeat' blinking at least the kernel booted. In case you have an USB Ethernet dongle try it with this. And without serial console it will be difficult to continue anyway...
no USB / ETH Dongle available.
And I don't have such a serial adapter for the Board
If I attach a HDD it's spinning on at the time the blue light flashing (2/3 per sec flashing)
I see do following options:
- Image do not have the correct NIC driver?
- NIC of the hc1 have an Hardware Issue
- I am stupid (what can be and doing something wrong
Is ther a way without the Serial Consol to get Information out of it?
(booting wit a Linux and check some log's)
otherwise I will send it back to Pollin.
Driver can't be an issue and you won't get anything in logs since folder2ram 'caches' logs in RAM. I would try a Debian image from meveric since AFAIK they miss these optimizations (he considers stupid). If you then manage to access the ext4 partition you might get a clue what goes wrong.
Thank you very much!
hm I try this one (don't know if this is the correct one:)
it also start flashing blue but also do not request any IP at DHCP.
There is a FAT Partition on the SD Card called boot.
no ext4 Part.
I also try this:
but reboot without IP request.
Well, seems like an issue with either Ethernet jack or the RTL8153 (onboard and needs power) or something in between those two. Hardware issue.
EDIT: Nevermind, problem solved by flashing the sd card again... (or maybe the odroid's sd card slot has bad contacts?). Anyway, it works now.
I just signed up since I have a similar problem with my Odroid HC1 with OMV3.0.92_Odroidxu4.
The board turns on, the blue LED lights up. After a few seconds, the LED goes out, then flashes shortly 3-4 times, then the process repeats from the beginning. Yellow Ethernet LED lights up solid and flashes only 2-3 times.
It does not seem to be a hardware issue!
My hardware runs perfectly fine if I use armbian's image.
- OMV image checksum was correct, I used dd on the img file inside the archive. Did not try etcher yet.
- Power should suffice, measured 5.05V (when HC1 was not connected) - and I did not attach a HDD yet.
- LAN cable is fine, works on a Raspberry PI.
- SD card is fine, as I said, it works with armbian.
I also do not have a serial cable. Is there anything I can do to find out what's wrong with the OMV image?

I am writing this post because i need some advice. Please tkaiser give me some advice.
I want to make a domestic NAS (max 10 concurrent connections), but i am not sure what option to choose. In this moment i have a prototype with a 'orange pi plus' running OMV 3 (armbian).
I have a docker farm running some containers (at bootup):
- Tor proxy.
- BIND Open Source DNS Server.
- Plex server.
And others not running at bootup (deluge, nbzget, etc).
In this moment i want a solution than can run OVM and some docker containers with RAID 1+0 or preferably RAID 5 capabilities.
- RAID 5 or 1+0;
- min 4 GB RAM (preferably ECC);
- ARM architecture preferably (low tdp).
- SATA interface;
- USB 3;
- Gigabit interface;
There are some premade solutions that are arriving to the market like:
- Gnubee Personal cloud 1 and 2 -> Limited RAM and low cpu profile.
- Helios4 -> I think 2GB of RAM ECC its not enouph for my needs.
Some solutions i am studing:
- A SolidRun SBC with 2 GHz (ARM OR intel) and 4GB RAM (ECC) -> Expensive.
- ASRock motherboard with socket 1151 and a intel xeon cpu (ebay) -> Expensive and with a higher TDP.
What is the best solution ? What are the new sbc's that will arrive on the market in 2018 that will fill my needs ?
Can i have a stable SBC based solution ? For me its the best solution because of the low TDP.
Thank you and best regards.

What happens when you unplug the HC-2, to say move it or to add something via USB?
Do all of the mount points/settings/shared settings vanish? or does everything restart to the way it was before the power was pulled?
If you pull the power plug when the HC-2 is still running all sorts of strange things can happen. No good idea.
If you properly shutdown the HC-2 and pull the plug then all your configuration will be still there. If you have no battery for your RTC it might need some time, until the HC-2 synchronises the clock after a reboot again.
Setting up a new HC2 and struggling a bit. Want to install Docker, but the Docker CE repository seem to just throw a bunch of errors. -see attachment
Docker CE error.txt
Used the guide on sourceforge to burn latest image OMV_3_0_92_Odroidxu4_4.9.61.img. Any help or pointers deeply appreciated!
Just to inform you..
After some days I got a new HC1 and the Issue was still present. (some Pages back in this subject)
[no IP request; blinking blue LED]
thank to TKaiser!
My last try was to replace (the new) SD Card with a different one (from my mobile)...
And ... This one is working perfectly... (and flashing in the same way)..
IP was requested.. OMV is now working fine!
Now I play around with Plex and miniDLNA...
Searching only a good "Gallery for android "
I Rsynch only PICs to the HC1 that should be searchable and fast browse able.
Plex look not to bad.. But I don't like the external Auth. (and the Andorid App need a plex pass)
miniDLNA with Bubble App is ok but Image rotation and speed is not that good...
Owncloud still need to test..
Any suggestions what is worth a look?
1) Any chance in being able to support the 4.14 kernel?
2) Is there an .img that installs straight to OMV4?
I find the Odroid HC2 a very good idea for creating a small, energy saving NAS device.
Now to my question:
The Case is designed as stackable device. This means i can e.g. buy 2 or 4 of the HC2 devices and equip them with harddisks.
Do i have to install omv on each of the devices ?
How can i manage to access to all the data on the disks from one central point / interface ?
How do you do that ?
Thank you in advance.
