I have a similar board (J3455M) and had several problems once the builds switched to 11.1 base.
Please check my post :

https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=137798.0

The main issues for me were the continuous resets of the xhci system (and the whole USB system), so much so that I reverted to 2.3.4_1. Now it is running smoothly.

The only problem I still could not figure out (with this new MB) is that the serial ports seems not to be working and my GPS module cannot be used for NTP sync. The hardware is OK (tested with win10), therefore the issue must be with the SW configuration or such....

I like the board and I really wish the issues will be fixed in future releases...

Probably a FreeBSD problem, I'd check out forums upstream to see if you can find a solution.

My system with J3355-ITX seems to prefer the TSC timecounters without any manual tweaks on 2.4.0 which means the HPET bug is not going to trigger. Go figure.

This worked for me:

 Boot from image
- At first loader menu choose to boot in safe mode (6,3)
-  Reboot (1)
- Complete installation in safe mode
- Before final reboot choose to add manual changes (goes to prompt)
- Edit and add to  /boot/loader.conf  ( hint.hpet.0.clock="0" )

it survived reboot and upgrade.

@amunrara,

as posted before, I followed the same process and managed to install 2.4.0 on my board, but after one week of testing I had to go back to 2.3.4p1. The continuous resets of the USB system (xhci)flooded my email with alarms from nut (my ups is linked to pfSense via USB).
Please check if you have the same problem with xhci and let me know.

I still cannot use the serial interfaces, but I plan to do some tests with serial console during the weekend.

Just tried 2.4.1 and still had the issue..

Cant even see it in the bugs list on the redmine page, so it seems we are left for stranded  :'(

@maxbet

I have no issue with USB, my bios is reset to standard.
the only change I made was on " /boot/loader.conf "

upgrade to 2.4.1 run without any problems
I guess, i am just lucky with the board
