My beaglebone black is powered using single cell LiPo battery via TP6. (A 10kohm resistor soldered btw TP7 and TP8 to act as thermistor). The board powers up fine and does everything except the USB host is not working. I know USB is supposed to work with 5V, thus while debugging I used a 5V supply to connect to TP6. The board power up fine yet the USB host is still not working. While checking the IC U8, it’s found that the voltage reading of pin4 (enable pin) of U8 is 0V. The AM3359 IC is not providing output to the USB1_DRVVBUS, i.e. the AM3359 decides to turn off the USB host when battery is used. Any advice where to change in the device tree or what to do so that the USB host won’t be disabled? The OS used is Debian Wheezy 3.8 kernel.
