  1. You must use new autoscript. I'm not sure will you have to install again from libreelec if you want to switch back, but you can install it from android every time you need it Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk
  2. @talraash H3 is 32bit board, i think it is much better supported, are you shure this will work on 64bit cpu? Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk

    s905w boot process?

    It does not look so dangerous , didn't know what it does. I don't want to brick my box and never tried soething what i don't know what it does, , but also i have some skills and a lot of hardware (uart, jtag, eeprom and flash programmers), but usually i'm using it when someone else brick his device. Thank you for explanation and all your help for all our devices. I'm using older version on my tv boxes, but i like to learn and test everything else I'm not developer, i work as linux sysadmin, i just quote what jock posted not knowing what this command does.

    s905w boot process?

    I booted so many times my 3 tv boxes from sdcard and never had to erase eMMC. I'm still not sure even is it safe. Even in pdf which you pointed, I can't find where is written to have to erase flash, there are just few u-boot commands: 5. If there's some old data on the flash, you might wish to erase them all (recommendation, but just for data) # store init 3 (u-boot command) # reset // now the system starts from sd card (u-boot command) Maybe i have some special tv-boxes, i bought the cheapest one from Ali and GB.

    Erasing bootloader on amlogic destroy board, this is for rockchip, not for amlogic. Maybe i'm wrong. On topic, great it boots finally. I think that balbes150 kernel has full v4l2 m2m support, it is definitely best kernel for tv boxes because it support so many devices. Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk

    In build script you can choose to compile only kernel. Only time consuming thing is to wait until scripts download 6 different toolchain. If you have fast internet it is not a problem. Build script is adopted for ubuntu, but in general.sh is written how to override this. Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk

    I compiled kernel using build script from blabes github. It downloads toolchains and patch kernel at the end. You can make your own config. After that you have patched kernel source and you can compile without build script using same toolchain. This is a build script: https://github.com/150balbes/build/tree/master Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk

    Bootloader is in internal memory, there is no bootloader on sdcard. S905_scriptwhatever is used only to change environment and it is used once, before first boot. Aml_autoscript boots linux. You have separate lines for sdcard, usb and maybe something else. This file you have to edit to remove initrd. Also this file calls uenv.ini where is boot command similar to grub or lilo boot commands. After editing aml_autoscript you must covert it using mkimage -A arm64 -T script -O linux -d name.txt name.scr Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk

    Did you boot armbian on tx3? It is simple, just download image and look at a scripts. Or just replace kernel with your kernel image and edit line where is rootfs (in file uenv.ini for old builds, not sure for mainline). Supereasy, just try and it will boot.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    You have to compile wifi driver by yourself, mainstream kernel has very bad support for wifi chips. For sound output use alsa mixer to configure. Or make dtb file for exactly your model. Also there is separate topic for Armbian build with mainstream kernel:

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    @balbes150 If i flash your u-boot (some previous version, not the last one), can i somehow add support for power on/off with remote control? I have nexbox nougat firmware in my box and this is the best firmware, but currently remote power on/off does not work. I mostly use armbian, but still need remote for power on. In android dtb there is remote config which i didn't modify because i think it is only for android when it is booted, but it is not problem to edit and recompile dts. Also one more question. I tried many armbian version and here is the report: 5.41.1 mali 6 ubuntu mate, mate is unstable (sound and wifi applet always crash), chromium is fast and youtube works as it should except in full screen when stutter a lot. Kodi does not work, didn't look ak a log. For me best version. 5.41.1 mali 6 debian xfce, xfce works perfectly, chromium unusable, kodi does not start. Also with all debian versions, probably xfce needs more memory then mate, i have only 1gb. 5.44, latest kernel. Similar to 5.41, mate unstable, can't install chromium because of unmet dependencies, kodi is working, firefox plays youtube, but i like more chromium, it is faster. Question is simple, what is your favorite version? I never tried Icewm, maybe i should? Thanks Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk

    @jeanrhum What is the difference between 5.37 and newer version, for example 5.41 with mali6?
