VL53L1 sensors activate without expansion board but by using SHUT pin on/off

We use VL53L1 connected to our MCU board without xVL53L1 expansion board as DevId = 0/1/2...
By using MCU controlling the IO to off/on the XSHUT pin of sensor but during init. process,


it fails at VL53L1_WaitDeviceBooted() with error message, VL53L1_ERROR_CONTROL_INTERFACE


flow is as below:


1. XSHUT with all 3 sensor to low for device-disable.

2. each enable by XSHUT to high with standard init process as example code suggests

-> it fails at this stage, (I2C seems not working..,,. is it related with 


/* 2V8 power mode selection codex 447463 */
#ifdef USE_I2C_2V8

Status = VL53L1_RdByte(Dev, VL53L1_PAD_I2C_HV__EXTSUP_CONFIG, &i);
if (Status == VL53L1_ERROR_NONE) {
i = (i & 0xfe) | 0x01;
Status = VL53L1_WrByte(Dev, VL53L1_PAD_I2C_HV__EXTSUP_CONFIG,



but it is called at fun VL53L1_DataInit() after VL53L1_WaitDeviceBooted() and this will cause
I2C action failure during VL53L1_WaitDeviceBooted(), any help?
