These reports are weird, we tested Canola2 on gregale and hacker
edition, I even have it running on my personal 770/gregale with

I see 2 possibilities here (just guesses):
 - another package is installed and causes a conflict somehow, many
components are mixed in hacked edition
 - you tried to install with bora repositories and now you have stale
packages compiled for arm11 and them cause "Illegal Instruction",
however I just saw this error at the beginning, no splash screen is

We can try to figure out it together, but we need more information.
One way to debug canola app and daemons is to launch with -v (verbose)
or -vv (the most verbose, includes debug info). Daemons can be stopped
with "stop" command line parameter and started with "start -vv
--logfile=/home/user/XX.log", so running these should help:

    atabake stop; atabake start -vv --logfile=/home/gustavo/atabake.log
    downloadmanager stop; downloadmanager start -vv
    canolad stop; canolad start -vv --logfile=/home/gustavo/canolad.log
    canola -vv
