  1. Which benefit should I get from using the older build, when recent bionic next works nice from eMMC?!
  2. Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_bionic_dev_5.6.0-rc7-next-20200326_desktop.img.xz runs and installs flawless again on my x96-mini 2/16 Testbox(as always connected via ETH and using analogue output on usb soundcard) and usual meson-gxl-s905w-p281.dtb. Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_focal_current_5.6.0-rc6_desktop_20200326.img.xz works (from card) too, but I had issues changing language and it ran (maybe caused by the card I used?!) a bit sluggish..so I went to bionic next (again).
  3. Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.0-rc2_desktop_20200302.img.xz runs and installs flawless again on my x96-mini 2/16 Testbox(as always connected via ETH and using analogue output on usb soundcard).
  4. After having some issues on Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.5.1_desktop_20200220.img.xz (had no icons and no upper panel with two different cards..) Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.5.1_desktop_20200227.img.xz runs and installs flawless again on my x96-mini 2/16 Testbox(as always connected via ETH and using analogue output on usb soundcard).
  5. ..hard to say-if no one has this specific version stored somewhere and can upload it(I always used desktop version, mostly bionic) you might have to use one of the newer images from yandexdisk archives..
  6. ..you have to open a terminal on booted system and type: sudo /root/install-aml.sh for amlogic devices to install.
  7. ..at least this would be enough: LINUX=/zImage INITRD=/uInitrd FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-gxl-s905w-p281.dtb APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0
  8. You need to comment all unused lines out and delete the # in front of those lines the image should use. so for you right uEnv.txt would be: LINUX=/zImage INITRD=/uInitrd # rk-3399 #FDT=/dtb/rockchip/rk3399-rock-pi-4.dtb #FDT=/dtb/rockchip/rk3399-nanopc-t4.dtb #APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=uart8250,mmio32,0xff1a0000 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 # rk-3328 #FDT=/dtb/rockchip/rk3328-box.dtb #APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=uart8250,mmio32,0xff130000 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 # aw h6 #FDT=/dtb/allwinner/sun50i-h6-tanix-tx6.dtb #APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 #APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 mem=2048M video=HDMI-A-1:e # aml s9xxx FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-gxl-s905w-p281.dtb APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 ..your attempt had to fail as the first open link was that to rk-3399-nanopc dtb which surely doesn't work on amlogic device..
  9. ..on other x96mini 2/16 Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_dev_5.6.0-rc1-next-20200214_desktop.img.xz runs & installs like it should, using as always ethernet and usb audio. Did no deeper comparison, but on first sight both versions(ver 20200213 kernel 5.5 and NEXT (5.6)) act and behave very similar, while 5.6 feels maybe somehow a part of a micro-second faster(or it is the other/newer revision of the pcb in this box!?)..
  10. Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.5.1_desktop_20200213.img.xz also runs & installs nicely like before on my x96mini 2/16 s905w p281 testbox as always with ethernet connection and analogue usb sound. Box works as it should (for me)!..
  11. As I got no issues with video output via hdmi and these crappy, tiny tv speakers are off usually, the distortion is no issue for me. So that means, the internal av-port could be "activated" via cheap & bad HDMI cable? I didn't test for long time, but is then sound via cvbs 3.5mm jack available again too?! That would be my perfect scenario: video via hdmi and sound via analogue internal 3.5mm jack-that would mean one usb available(1of2 is taken by keyboard always) for storage or other stuff because no usb sound is needed..
  12. ..just a quick report: Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.5.1_desktop_20200212.img.xz also runs & installs nicely like before on my x96mini 2/16 s905w p281 testbox as always with ethernet connection and analogue usb sound.
  13. Thanks to balbes for his work and providing the rich variety of all these aml, multi & aw-images! Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200211.img.xz runs & installs nicely on my x96mini 2/16 s905w p281 testbox. Depending on chip -I got several different hw-versions of x96m- even wifi works with AP6255(this pcb has imprint "Q6X V4.0 17392"), but I use ethernet cable anyway. Because I forgot to mute TV after some other test-scenario I got signal not only via analogue amp as usual. HDMI sound seems to be little overdriven/distorted on desktop-test-video without user regulation on box(TV was set just at 3 of 40 which is usually "near muted"..), while usb sound sends perfect and clean signal to old '93s Kenwood Stereo-Amp via 3.5mm jack. By the way: I'll try this build on my creepy, stubborn, un-cooperative (flowfon/eachlink) H6mini 4/32 box next days too-would be nice if it works(on other, zero-overwritten card, with aw u-boot and aw changes), but I doubt it on this some kind of enchanted device which booted le for tx6 exactly one time and then never any armbian or LE again(no success with uart-reading other than garbage, found no working u-boot/dtb to boot from sd, usb or sd & usb together..)..
  14. After problems with the 19.11.5 images, Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.032_Arm-64_bionic_dev_5.5.0-next-20200131_desktop.img.xz boots, runs and installs again as it should(and I was used to) on my x96mini 2/16 test box with usual eth connection and usb sound. Thanks @balbes150 for his good work and making s905(w) boot with new builds again!
  15. ..if you want use pure kodi, pop in a card with libreelec installed, or maybe use android..consider armbian on these boxes as sbc for server tasks or as tiny low cost and low-medium performance desktop mini-pc with just basic multimedia features with built in and patched mpv player..
