CT: stays in booting

I got my new CT the other day, it was booting fine directly into android OS. I moved it to another location in my office today. It is weird that the booting stays showing "android" and not proceed any more, the led lights are ok (solid or blinking), the reset button also works but just stay in booting. Anyone knows what could be wrong?
I am waiting for my usb TTL cable to come and see what this bad boy is doing. This device is not stable from what I have seen.



Power not enough?
He need 5V 1A directly for success boot...
Anyway you can write another firmware to micro sd card and try to boot...

I don't think this is power issue. the power source is 5V 2A.
The board is just not stable as I expect....

Finally, I got my USB TTL console up. Please see my full console log as attached.
I have no clue why it keep reporting these message on console:

[   72.465460] init: untracked pid 6249 exited                                 
[   72.470375] init: untracked pid 6248 exited                                 
[   77.469747] init: untracked pid 6621 exited                                 
[   77.502435] init: untracked pid 6620 exited                                 
[   82.429216] init: untracked pid 6994 exited                                 
[   82.449947] init: untracked pid 6993 exited                                 
[   87.543833] init: untracked pid 7364 exited                                 

kernel still is still in init state.
And, my VGA monitor shows 'android'.

Could it be hardware problem ? as there is no change on my CT and run default NAND image.

Write another firmware to nand. Maybe it work...
