#11612 closed enhancement (fixed)

Default left rocker diagnostic test via menu fails on external SD, powers off XO

Description

If one is not quick (and knows to hit the arrow keys), the default left rocker diagnostic test in Q4D03 will step through all the non-interactive items, and fail/power-off the XO on the first failed item it hits.

In our case this is the external SD card test, which fails if no external SD card is present. And since I believe most XO users do not use external SD cards this stands a risk of being somewhat annoying.

If there is a sane way to do it, I would like to see us continue non-interactive-style testing after failed tests are hit like we have historically after the user acknowledges the failure(s) seen. Since the external SD card test is one of the first tests (resulting in the majority of tests not being non-interactively run) the current behavior may lead a lot of less knowledgeable people thinking their XOs are "broken".

Do we need an updated OFW build with this change for 1.75 production?

I don't think so. The change is insignificant. This ticket is an enhancement. The change will eventually be released, but I don't think this ticket should be the trigger.

Was in Q4D04.
