this is likely a very old and re-asked question...
I noticed while trying to get a USB3 powered hub working on my OTG port that it's powering my up-board. As in supplying enough power that it still runs when i turn the up-board's power brick off... Is this OK? it wont cause any damages? no clashes?

    Try to unplug everything and also disconnect the CMOS battery for few minutes, then try again but do not power the UP Board via USB OTG.

    sorry i took so long to answer. the up board does power up again but i haven't had the chance to plug it into a HDMI cable to ensure its working 100%.

    my man cave is a mess

    can confirm 100% that your recommendation has worked... CentOS is installing on to it now
