    Unfortunately, also the new Kernel 4.20 doesn't work for me....

    Do you have an other idea to fix this issue?

    Thanks in advance! 

    The solution is to avoid that box or force it to run at 100Mbit instead of 1Gbit
    They have tried a lot of things in LibreElec, something seemed to work but not for all: https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/13071-zte-zx2aa500-gb-ethernet-transceiver-problems-solved-big-news-for-inside/?pageNo=1

    Yes, my box was connected to a hdmi monitor, so I can view the console login prompt, but no usb to use a keyboard and no ethernet nor wireless to connect via ssh.

    Thanks, you have saved from to a very wrong purchase. Now I need to find a S912 were at least the gigabit network works ok! :)

    I tested recently and had the same issues with an s912 tv box (gt1 ultimate) previously running a 3.14 img. I was able to boot with most dtbs cthat are compatible with the soc, but I never hab been able to use usb nor network devices.

    Do you mean that even the integrated network card (not wireless) wasn't working for you?

    I have a strange issue and I digged it a bit on google but I can't see what's exactly wrong. In dmesg I see:

    
    [ 1005.422372] ath10k_sdio mmc2:0001:1: failed to write to address 0x828: -84

    [ 1147.823192] ath10k_sdio mmc2:0001:1: could not probe fw (-2)

     

    I have checked the relative firmware folder and I have the firmwares:

     

    
    root@aml:/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0# pwd
    /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0
    root@aml:/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0# ls
    board-2.bin  board.bin  firmware-5.bin  firmware-6.bin  notice_ath10k_firmware-5.txt  notice_ath10k_firmware-6.txt

     

    Is it possible that it's looking for the firmwares in another folder instead of the standard one? (CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR != /lib/firmware) 

     

    Thanks!

     

     

     

    Everything works with a 3.14.x kernel and module wlan, but I can't get it working with the latest kernel :(

    Can't advise you on your specific device but I had a similar problem and it was down to incorrect firmware file names.
    I had to go back to the original working Android and find the firmware_path, nv_path etc by using dmseg and comparing file sizes/md5sum signatures.
    The specific device was t95 (Armbian forum post).

     

    Thanks! According to the error, the filename is correct (Failed to find firmware-N.bin (N between 2 and 6) from ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.00). Looking at other forums, I saw similar errors but reporting the full path, for example: e.g. /lib/firmware.ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.00, that's why I'm wondering where it's expecting to find the firmwares.
