I have a 5volt, 1 Amp usb power adaptor and a working model B raspberry pi. All of a sudden it started showing the, “error 110 transferring data” problem. After trolling for days I came across this solution from github’s forums.
What I had to do was remove the sd card (a Sandisk class 10, 16gig) from the pi and insert it in to my Linux box. Mount the /boot and / partitions. Then edit /boot/cmdline.txt and modify, “elevator=noop sdhci-bcm2708.missing_status=0 sdhci-bcm2708.sync_after_dma=0”
Then edit /etc/fstab and append nodiratime like this:
defaults,noatime,nodiratime for /
Then safely remove the sd card.
That fixed it for me. Super thanks to remsnet for the fix! 🙂
