  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_dumm 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.

  4. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    To work WiFi need a proper dtb, kernel module (can be integrated into the kernel itself), the firmware and the right settings. You need to determine in which element the error. Most likely, the wrong dtb, you need to try the files with 100Mb or 1Gb network. Read carefully the first post of this thread, it says how to set the module startup.
  5. Mov Z69 Amlogic s905x can't get Linux running

    Which version of the image Armbian you are trying to run ?
  6. The best SoC/devboard/TV-box for HW accelerated desktop

    What do You HW in the DE ?
  7. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    1. The kernel sources that I use to build the kernel 3.14 and 4.9 are in my git (a link was many times in this thread). 2. Build the dtb must be performed using the kernel source from them to undertake the necessary data for dtb. 3. To get the dtb from firmware Android is not difficult, it's the same was discussed many times on this forum.
  8. Armbian for Amlogic S805

    There are plans, but until I have enough free time.
  9. Wechip V7, TX8 MAX, Z69 3G RAM don´t boot

    Have you tried all the gxm-* dtb file ?
  10. Wechip V7, TX8 MAX, Z69 3G RAM don´t boot

    Use dtb files from the image (from dir /dtb).
  11. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    Image update Armbian S812_3.10.107_20171124. Fixed bug with start Armbian from SD cards (check run with all the dtb files in them is different). You can use 720p and 1080p (via the file "/boot/"). Updated packages to current versions.
  12. Wechip V7, TX8 MAX, Z69 3G RAM don´t boot

    On what specific model of TV box you write ? All the models in your list are different and the settings must be different.
  13. Wechip V7, TX8 MAX, Z69 3G RAM don´t boot

    1. Try to run without dtb file. 2. How long are you waiting from the time the screen turns off ? The system start-up can take 5-10 minutes (screen is black , no signal). 3. What medium are you using SD card or USB flash drive ?
  14. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    You can try to fix it. I think the reason is not the correct settings for this model or not correct firmware. In the Internet there are instructions for setting up BT.
  15. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Thanks for the info, I'll check it.
  16. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Briefly tested the built-in BT on Telos, the adapter is there, but not working as it should. Checked the external BT adapter, you can connect different devices. But playing sound through BT is a big distortion, choppy (maybe I'm not correctly set up). To ALL Some of the owners of TV boxes with Amlogic S9xxx is available for one of these options USB-DAC ?
  17. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    I haven't checked.
  18. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    As far as I remember, Kszaq (the author of the Assembly LE) uses an additional procedure at the start itself should pull out of Android the desired file to the remote control. Look at the USB stick after the first start and setup LE, you should see the file remote.conf from your TV box.
  19. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    1. In current versions of LE (at startup LE from the media) in the shutdown menu, it is possible to choose to reload the system, which is located in the internal memory ("Rebot from NAND flash\Android"). Ie if you set Armbian in eMMC and when you run the LE from external media, you can choose a LE to restart the system , which is in the eMMC. 2. What version of LE are you using ? In image Stretch not use a test repository.
  20. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    I apologize for the delay in response. Before upgrading, I recommend doing a full backup (utility ddbr). 1. Then you can try updating via apt. If the system fails to start, you will have to perform a clean installation. 2. I haven't tested the packs mount in x86. The start order of systems in the presence of external media. If you have a bootable system on a USB , it runs first USB -> if USB is no system (or no USB), checks the system on the SD and if there is, it runs SD -> if there is no system on the SD card , run system from eMMC.
  21. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    You can use unlimited number of systems on external media. When you connect together several media, always run the same system in order of priority - USB -> SD. To run from SD card, you need to be sure to turn the system off USB.
  22. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    1. Start Armbian from SD card. 2. Open a terminal and run the command "sudo ddbr", then follow the prompts. Select the mode for creating a compressed backup. Ddbr utility creates a full backup (on the SD card in the directory /ddbr) of the system that you are now in the internal memory of the TV box. 3. After that you can write on the USB flash drive system Libreelec and connect to the TV box. Notice - to activate the multi-boot is not necessary. Libreelec should automatically start up with USB stick. Check the LE (all devices on your TV box) and if everything is working correctly, you can run the installation LE in the inside memory.
  23. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    1. If you use advanced features KODI, I recommend using Libreelec. You can install one of these systems (LE or Armbian) to eMMC , and the second to run from external media. If you have a model VIM2, you can install in eMMC universal system MultiOS_3in1 (Android+LibreELEC+Armbian or any other variant of Linux). 2. To use a USB stick with KODI you can try to mount it via SSH. Look for information about using the libraries MALI. I have no specific information on this issue. As far as I know, KODI uses x11 in a limited way, so no x11 is not necessary. You can try to view the source code for Amlogic on the subject of how they use gstreamer to work with the framebuffer and libamcodec.
