droid-pro-1 and nexus-one-2 sdcard change

nexus-one-2 (00_23_76_96_cc_6f_nexus-one) and droid-pro-1 (c8_aa_21_ac_0c_b5_droid-pro) appear to have difficulties with the new SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-I. I have reverted back to the old Kingston class 4 4G cards on these devices. I have also discarded the older jobs which were pending so as to not confuse the graphs with a mixture of sdcards.

Any apparent regression from 2013-10-31 to 2013-11-01 for these two phones should be disregarded.

Kingston class 4 4G cards

I went through the older Kingston cards and performed a disk verification and repair using my Mac Book Pro’s disk utility. Those cards which could not be repaired have been removed from the active inventory. I will attempt to use the remaining cards in the devices which can not reliably run using the newer SanDisk cards. If a device appears to have issues with accessing the sdcard, I will attempt to swap in another and will move the offending card into an ‘unreliable’ category.

New Phones

I received a number of phones from Haxxor Canada and am in the process of bringing them online to help partition devices between the s1s2, canvas SkiaGL and regression testing.

Obtained new Micro SDHC cards (SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-I cards) which match those in use for Panda testing and installed in the following phones which use external cards:

  • droid-pro-1
  • nexus-one-1
  • nexus-one-2

Any performance or reliability improvement in these phones in the next round of tests should be attributable to the new sdcards.

The shipment of phones from Haxxor Canada to Haxxor Virginia is being held up in due to an import clearance hold since Friday October 18. I’m not sure what is the cause for the delay but it may be due to a backlog caused by the U.S. Government “shutdown” this month. Hopefully the phones will be released soon.

Device Issues

  • samsung-gs3-1, samsung-gs3-2 hung on Mochitest-Canvas requiring a battery reset.
  • droid-pro-1, nexus-s-2 hung on Mochitest-Canvas requiring a reboot
  • nexus-one-2 suffered another sdcard failure

Update: 10:00AM PT

nexus-s-2 continues to hang running the Mochitest-Canvas tests. After 3810 Passed, 121 Failed and 105 Todo tests, while executing /tests/content/canvas/test/test_drawImage_edge_cases.html, the Mochitest runner’s iframe reports “The proxy server is refusing connections”.

samsung-gs3-1 hung the entire device on Mochitest-Canvas again requiring a battery reset. The device appears to be stuck and overheating. Will allow it to “rest” for a bit before returning to service.

Update: 2:00PM PT

samsung-gs3-2 appears to be stuck and overheating and draining the battery. Will allow it to “rest” for a bit before returning to service.

Server Issues

After nexus-one-2 was unable to communicate its status after the sdcard change and reboot, I restarted the autophone server. There appears to be a latent bug related to pulse message timeouts which appears to disconnect some devices.
