    Pls let me know do You still need 4M from SD card. 
    (of corse I'm sure You remember to add PWM & AC200 support in kernel)

    PiotrO got a reaction from zogu in s905w boot process?   
    Finally I have working (and quite understand) booting on my s905w with my full control on software used/configured.
    My system is working enough to start exploring GLES (via ARM mail blobs)  and hw video decode (v4l2 m2m).
    Huge thx for Your really helpful support!
    Just quick Q:
    Has anybody have this in kernel log (in every 120sec)?

    PiotrO got a reaction from jock in s905w boot process?   
    I think we need to distiguish booting from sd and _unattended_ booting from sd.
    In case of my hw (tx3-mini) I think unattended boot from sd is NOT possible without erasing[modifying] eMMC bootloader.
    I think so as IPL by default is passing control to eMMC.
    So if we want unattended boot from SD - we MUST:
    1\ change eMMC content
    2\ modify IPL
    As IPL is in ROM (I think) -  only option 1\ is choice.
    Reasonably written IPL should have fall-back to SD[USB] if SPL from eMMC fails (i.e. for case when flash ageing leading to data rot). In such case IPL should offer recovery by booting from SD and refresh eMMC SPL.
    So I agree with initial @jock answer as IMHO his intention was to describe what needs t be done to have tv-box _unattended_ boot from sd

    Forgive me but - I'm a bit confused...
    You wrote:
    aml_autoscript content:
    this looks me strange as something what can boot linux.
    No any "booti" command, but "reboot" command!
    How such script can boot linux?
    on the other hand I see in s905_autoscript I see:
    boot_start' has here "booti"
    IMHO this script can boot linux contrary to aml_autoscript...
    I think in Your description You swapped names of: aml_autoscript with s905_autoscript and vice versa (probably just typo)
    pls confirm
