    ..I guess @blakadder thought, that the deb files hosted with the images(which needs to be installed manually if needed) are some kind of Updatefiles to update in a similar way like the update on Libreelec!?.. To update the installed packages to newer versions sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade (or via Synaptic if installed) is the only way to do this properly. To update the whole Version (e.g. from 5.67 --> 5.71) you need to install the new image onto card to test and (if you want to) install it onto eMMC AFTER HAVING A WORKING SYSTEM ON CARD. If you backup your home directory before, it is much easier to get back your desired settings/files. Also a backup of the complete old system via ddbr is sometimes useful, if you install the new image to eMMC without testing enough or install fails somehow..

    Did you try all possible USB Ports with and without Power supply for the box? It took for me also some time to find out which usb port on which laptop is usable for flashing with the usb burning tool. Even on two identical Thinkpads I need to use one of the usb 3.0 ports on the first laptop, but the other burns boxes only on the usb 2 port. Until I found the right ports burning also stopped at 7%, but at the "good" port it works mostly at first attempt. Once(after a power failure whilst flashing) I had to shorten a Pin on eMMC to get the box running again, but I'd try the different combinations of ports first because this bricked device was not recognized from burning tool at all. What about writing desired image onto sd card with amlogic boot card maker(or how it is called)and try to boot that?

    ..after creating the user it takes 2-5 minutes until login screen appears. I can reduce the time a bit by moving the mouse around while cursor is blinking. let the system work a little more time, it seems you are on the right path!.. btw. usually you need only to edit the uEnv.ini file to choose another dtb file..

    ..you are sure that you got eMMC on your box?!-many got problems if it is nand instead, which needs somehow another attempt..

    Did you try to install it via the armbian-config tool? ..I always used that and got no problems to install..

    Did you try the option "Reboot from android" in the shutdown menu from Libreelec to get back in row?!

    Hi, as I could read in your log-text: "[18:12:07 469][HUB4-2][Inf]--Device is removed" it seems your cable is buggy, your USB doesn't provide enough power or something else with connection is wrong. Maybe try all other usb ports and if you don't succeed another cable. The behaviour of the tool is sometimes a bit odd: I got two identical Thinkpads but on one any Flashing just works with one USB3-port, but on the other it works only with the usb2 port on the other side of board. In normal operation on both laptops I got no problems with usb devices on all ports. So try out all combinations of ports, ideally without an external hub(for me it stopped often while burning using a hub-direct connection worked)...

    ..but the format is shown after probing with ffplay -decoders So I think it is maybe more a problem that anything is missing to use the video codec?!

    ..for me also none of the m2m-variants work properly with the provided ffplay. The "best" result was to get the sound playing, but instead of video some kind of multicolored waveform is displayed instead of video content. Mostly I get the segfault too when trying to play with any m2m-option. Without m2m(or other parameter) it works basically(seems to drop some frames..) okay.

    For me the 4.19.6-versions(installed the 1205 now on emmc) work much(10-15%) faster than those with 4.19.2/4.20-next versions. Everything is really responsive and works well on x96mini(ethernet connection + usb sound, but I didn't test internal av for weeks) . Thanks for your work! Sorry, but I know just some basics about ffplay usage. What do like to test/discover?! P.S.: By the way it seems that start up of login screen appears around 20-30 seconds faster if I move the mouse around while boot messages run through and the black screen is shown..

    Hmm, if those two didn't work, maybe try all others too until you find one which boots.. maybe you lack of some features, but try to find one which works somehow. Maybe try one of the older s905 Armbian 3.14 Kernelversions with 3.xx Kernel and the dtb which works on core/libreelec with your box(got on an H2+-Box also a armbian running, but with older kernel as it works better for me there..)?!

    Then give it a try! ..if it works with one or the other dtb for s905d perfect, if not you loose 30-60 minutes as you could re-format your sd card if it fails (and original system is still working)..

    Did you try to use the dtbs for p230/p231 (which are for s905d) delivered with the builds by specifying in uEnv.ini ile on boot partition after writing image to card/pendrive?

    @balbes150 I found out, that my monitors second HDMI where the inverted colors appear is actually a DVI input with an (detachable) HDMI adapter. On the "real" HDMI armbian starts with normal colors. So I just switched libreelec and armbian boxes' cables and now both display signal perfect without inverted colors (after boot up). So I can confirm that (real) HDMI works flawless on tx3 mini & x96 mini with armbian 5.67 build. btw. I ran into the problem that armbian from emmc didn't start up after accidentally hitting "boot from android" on a libreelec from sd card. I solved it with an armbian re-install on emmc from last installs sd card,. It was okay as I didn't make too much changes since then, but I wonder if there is a easier way to stop the box searching a bootable android after provoking "boot from android" (by mistake)?!

    @balbes150 Armbian on tx3 mini works like on x96mini(where I keep armbian on internal). I didn't see any differences in using khadas/p281/p281tx3 dtb files. On tx3 i got also the inverted colors on boot until I unplug and reconnect HDMI . For analog sound I need usb soundcard as expected, wifi runs perfect with cheap usb wifi r8188eu stick, but I prefer ethernet. On tx3 mini the box always reboots too-Power off works here also just mechanically via switch on ac outlet. I didn't have a look on getting remote or front display work, but armbian works beside of these little quirks pretty good.
