TPS65217 BeagleBone Force On

I’d like to have the Beaglebone boot up automatically after power up without having to press the PWR_BUT. If you strap PWR_BUT low, the system turns on automatically, but then it resets every 8 seconds. I’ve looked through the chip docs and state machine diagram and I’m not sure forcing the system on is even possible. Maybe someone has figured out a hack…

Sorry if this is answered somewhere else; have searched through the forum docs but didn’t see anything. Thanks.

If you apply power, it will boot up automatically. You do not need to push the power button to power it up.
