  1. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Image works with SD cards and USB drives. Regular firmware in the device is NOT CHANGED. When you replace the dtb file can be run on any device with Amlogic chip S905 s905x s912 When you first start the system, the root user password is 1234 The minimum media size - 4 GB Option how to start (Activation multi-boot). ****************************************** Manual run Systems ****************************************** Now all images Armbian and LE has all the files for activate the multi-boot. Anything in addition to download and copy to media is not required. 1. Download the desired image 2. Unpack 3. Record an image on the medium 4. to run Android 5. open the app "Update&Backup" 6. Select local update and an archive on removable media ( 7. Run update 8. System twice to reboot and start running the system from external media. 9. If after 7-10 minutes on the monitor not to receive any messages on system startup. Turn off TV box and add in manual in the first partition (FAT) the file "dtb.img". On the media there is a directory dtb from where you can take the files and copy them to the root of the renaming of "dtb.img". Need to pick up the option for the file system will run. Pay attention, after you add\change the dtb file, you need to try to run the system and waiting to run 7-10 minutes. If not happened, repeat with a different dtb file. Attention !!!! On models with S802 S805 S812. Activation multi-boot is possible ONLY with SD card (activation of the USB stick is NOT WORKING). After a one-time activation procedure is multi-boot, run a variety of systems is possible from ANY storage media (SD cards and USB storage devices). ************************************************** ************************************************** ******* The choice of shell to start (Mate\XFCE or KODI). On the screen enter username and password (in lightdm) in the upper right corner of the screen there is a menu where you choose which GUI to run. The list will be three items (two rows with kodi) and the last line mate. Select mate (something opposite mate was the point), then enter the username and password. The system remembers the last selected mode. If at the next login or what not to choose in this menu, system at the entrance will trigger the option that was turning off in the previous session. Install to eMMC (NAND) To install Armbian in the internal memory, you must execute multiple commands. We strongly recommend TO PreRUN create a full backup of the entire contents of the internal memory. This will allow you to return to the current state of the firmware at any time. To create a complete backup you need to execute commands. su - (enter passwd root) ddbr The running tip backup script After creating the backup, to install to internal memory (eMMC) of the command being executed Pay attention, if you not are sure that you will be able to solve possible problems from the installation of the internal memory (eMMC), do NOT PERFORM these commands. su - (enter passwd root) ./ or nand_sata_install Setup HDMI out. The configure script video output reside in a directory on a FAT partition (on a running system, this partition is automatically mounted to the /boot directory). This script can be changed. To change the screen resolution from 720p to 1080p, you need to uncomment the line "#mode=1080p60hz" and comment out the line "mode=720p60hz". Similarly, you can change the color depth from the default 24 to 32 (bpp=24). Note that with 32 bit color significantly changes the desktop. In this script you can place the commands you want to run WebMin , Doker, ask line to run the USB port (if necessary), configure, sound card, etc. On Wifi. run as root user one of these commands in the terminal An example command to load module “dhd” or “wifi_dummy” modprobe dhd or modprobe wifi_dummy After verification of the selected module, if everything is working correctly, you can add it to the autorun list (add string name of the module in the file /etc/modules). Remote control. Added support for remote control. To use it you need to add the correct file “remote.conf” in the /boot directory or /etc/amremote. By default, a part of the image includes several predefined files (in the /boot directory). To use it you need to rename one of the files in “remote.conf”. Additionally uploaded the site to the directory the deb package “amremote.deb” , which can be installed in the old system (do not download the whole image). After installing this package you need to run service “amlogic-remotecfg” and add (rename) the correct file 'remote.conf". Auto login Add line to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/11-armbian.conf [SeatDefaults] autologin-user=username autologin-user-timeout=delay Additional information Wiki Information to enable multi-boot on the WiKi is outdated, use to activate the multi-boot description from this post in the beginning. Other versions of images with different Linux systems.
  2. Armbian for Amlogic S912

    To check the operation of full-screen video from Linux, I am looking for users who have TV box models with s905X \ s912 and the ability to connect the UART console. Added the ability to manage via SSH (console UART is not required).

    Are you familiar with Linux commands ? The easiest solution is to run on a Linux PC, connect the new card (8Gb), create two partitions on it with labels BOOT (about 90-100 MB) and ROOTFS (everything else). Connect the old card (16 GB) and copy all the files from the old card to the new one from the root user.
  5. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    With this option, you need to deal with your sources for the wifi module.
  6. Strange partition layout on X96

    To modify partitions, you must modify the dtb file. And change the installation script so that it takes into account the partition name change.
  7. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    With what kernel sources do you collect ?
  8. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    You have the s812. The message about chip 805 refers to the bootloader that is part of the image. What steps did you take ? Why do you start u-boot from SD card ? Did you remove the regular u-boot from NAND ?
  9. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    You only need to connect three contacts. Gnd Tx Rx
  10. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    On the Board of the TV box should be the contacts for connecting the UART. This is usually 4 contact. The photo does not show the entire cost.
  11. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    The latest version of kernel packages (20180216) can be installed as you wrote. In this version of the deb packages have all the wifi modules. In previous versions of deb packages (< 20180216), this was not the case. The complete set of modules could only be obtained from the image. I don't have network repositories for installing packages yet.
  12. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    If multi-boot is enabled, then (to start the system from external media) you can use any media (SD or USB).
  13. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    IMHO the last image 20180216.
  14. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Try to use the image 20180216. In the kernel with updated modules WiFi and added module sv6051. I pay attention all, in connection with change of sources, the module name for qca9377 changed, now it is called "wlan".
  15. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    You're using the wrong image. You need to download images that have S812 in their name. Armbian for S812
  16. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    When you connect SD card to PC, what files do you see ? Show the list of files that are on the SD card after recording the Armbian image.

    I'm sorry, I don't understand the question. Describe in detail the essence of the question.
  19. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Yes, the system tries to use the embedded dtb (from the eMMC), but this only works if the eMMC uses a the same kernel . For example, if the eMMC installed has a version of LE that uses a similar kernel or Armbian\Linux.
  20. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Version 20180213. Updated part modules of WiFi + updated firmware. Tested Wi-Fi in s905 (Vega95 Telos\Pro). Changed the mt7601u driver. Added deb packages from the latest version 5.41. Please note that I recommend using firmware-aml-20180213.deb, if WiFi will not work (after downloading the desired module manually), you can try using the old version of firmware-aml.deb
  21. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Try to install additional packages from the firmware. Since the beginning of the test, if it works, then it will be "theory".
  22. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Have you tested the new version of the 3.14.79 kernel when running it from external media on your TV box model ?
  23. linux on g18ref box

    Start by reading the first message of this topic. The principle of use on all Amlogic models is the same.
  24. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Updated version 3.14.29 20180211. Added modules Wi-Fi mt7601 and qca9377 (tested on Vega S96 s912).
