Yi M1 (in)compatibility with smart adapters

I tried using a Viltrox EF-M1 (EF to M43) adapter with my Yi M1, but was sorely disappointed. If I attach a lens to the adapter prior to turning on the camera, the camera locks up upon powering on and the battery must be pulled to reset it. Turning on the camera with only the adapter attached and then adding a lens causes the EF-M1 to function as a completely 'dumb' adapter - no AF, no aperture control from the camera and focal length is reported as 0mm. I came across a review where similar issues were encountered with a Metabones Speedbooster and also four thirds to M43 adapter: https://jimchungblog.com/2017/02/03/a-real-world-performance-review-of-the-yi-m1-camera/

Are there any smart adapters that actually work with this camera?
