shutdown after closing h-e-n GUI can be caused by starting BME 
when bq27x00_battery driver is loaded. BME and bq27x00_battery 
cannot be loaded at same time. So make sure that bq27x00_battery 
is blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/* and also is NOT in list 

automounting FS in usb hostmode (without pressing mount button or 
mounting via terminal) will work if you update kernel-power to 
v50 and ke-recv to last version. Last version of ke-recv will be 
updated with next CSSU update. So wait for next CSSU and 
automouting will work.
