Have you come across this before? Know why it is? It has spanned the original 5.0.0 software and the 5.1.0 update.
You may need to clear out your /var/local partition by zeroing mmcblk0p3, or you might need to set your idme bootmode var to main. It is possible that the "lockup" is actually booting to fastboot mode. If fastboot can see it, you can do "fastboot setvar bootmode main
". Or in diags ssh, you can do "idme -d --bootmode main;rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS;reboot
I would try the bootmode var first, then if necessary, zeroing the /var/local partition, in that order.
