    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 https://yadi.sk/d/pHxaRAs-tZiei 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 image for your device 2. Unpack 3. Burn the image on the medium 4. boot into Android 5. open the app "Update&Backup" 6. click on "Select" local update and chose the file on the removable media (aml_update.zip) aml_autoscript.zip 7. start "Update" 8. System will reboot twice 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 manual copy into the first partition BOOT (FAT) the file "dtb.img". On the media there is a directory "dtb" from where you can take the file and copy it to the root of /boot rename it to "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). http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-support/amlogic-based-tv-players/606133-linux-images-for-s802-s805-s812-s905-s905x-s912-sd-usb-emmc http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-support/amlogic-based-tv-players/s905/tronsmart-ac/firmware-roms-tools-at/565449-running-linux-from-sd-card-or-usb-flash-drive-using-balbes150-method-and-files ************************************************** ************************************************** ******* 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) ./install.sh or nand_sata_install Setup HDMI out. The configure script video output hdmi.sh 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. How to add 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, some of the images already include several predefined files (in the /boot directory). To use it you need to rename one of the files in “remote.conf”. Additionally I have uploaded the deb package “amremote.deb”, which can be installed in your current system (do not download the complete image). Before installing, delete all remote.conf files: rm /boot/remote.conf.* Now you can install the package: sudo dpkg -i aml-amremote.... After installing this package you need to run in a terminal “service amlogic-remotecfg status” 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 http://forum.khadas.com/t/armbian-kodi-ubuntu-debian-for-sd-usb-emmc/825 Wiki Information to enable multi-boot on the WiKi is outdated, use to activate the multi-boot description from this post in the beginning. https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905/wiki Other versions of images with different Linux systems. https://yadi.sk/d/5_32km_EsCV2A

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    As far as I know, the s905w chip does not have a built-in USB 3.0. So the manufacturer could install an additional external chip. The driver for kernel 3.14 you need to ask the manufacturer or the seller.

    SD Card Boot Recovery

    2. If you do not know how to make a copy of u-boot from a working SD card, you can ask the developers of the image for your TV box for the necessary file. It's not a big file "u-boot.bin.sd.bin". To record a working u-boot in two teams. dd if=u-boot.bin.sd.bin of=/dev/mmcblk0 conv=fsync bs=1 count=442 dd if=u-boot.bin.sd.bin of=/dev/mmcblk0 conv=fsync bs=512 skip=1 seek=1 Note that the name mmcblk0 needs to be replaced with the name of your SD card in the system. 3. There are several important files that are involved in the startup process, which are used in your Armbian image, it is better to check with the image developer. You can try to copy all files from /boot.

    SD Card Boot Recovery

    IMHO 1. Create a full backup image from the SD card before further operations (dd if= of=). 2. Copy u-boot with a working SD card not working on the SD card (using dd two command with saving the partition table). Check the start. 3. Copy replace all files from /boot partition (kernel, initrd, etc.). Check the start. 4. If that doesn't help, boot from a working SD card, plug in a USB adapter to a non-working SD card, use "chroot" in a non-working SD card and watch\check the basic startup files. Or gradually shift from non-working Sd card in a working system all the settings and the files you need.

    Armbian for Amlogic S912

    I don't know, I haven't tested these modes. You may need to make changes to the kernel and system configuration.

    Armbian for Amlogic S912

    I'm not sure that will help. Change the size of the DTS file and collect the desired dtb. https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905-kernel/blob/khadas-3.14/arch/arm64/boot/dts/kvim2_multios.dts#L9 You may have to build a new u-boot with the desired memory size value. https://github.com/150balbes/u-boot/blob/Nougat-Ubuntu/board/khadas/configs/kvim2.h#L310

    What directories are you trying to create and for what ?
  12. balbes150

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    If the build is done on the TV box itself, copy the "Image" file from the SRC_KERNEL/arch/arm64/boot directory to /boot and rename it to "zImage". If you changed the kernel modules, follow their installation with "make", and follow all staff commands to update the initrd.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    This depends on where the system is located - in the eMMC or on external media. What does that mean, everyone ? You must either compile modules using headers from the installed kernel (not using sources from GIT), or you must build a completely new kernel from new sources and install it instead of the current kernel.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Update images version 5.44_20180515. Please note that the content of MATE\Xfce has changed. Now there is no KODI in the composition of these images. KODI packages with dependencies are in separate directories on the site. To install them, you need to download all the files from the desired directory and install manually (with the appropriate commands "dpkg -i" and "apt install -f").

    What about RTD1295 boxes ?

    If your TV box has the ability to connect the UART console, you can check this feature yourself.

    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    Many drivers come with their own sources (they are added separately to the common core). I do not have such equipment, so you need to try to collect the desired version of the core on your TV box. All sources of the kernel I use are freely available. You can take the kernel sources and add your driver sources from the PI Zero kernel to them. https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/

    These are different versions of KODI and different versions of libMali (5, 6, 7) or build without libMali .

    Armbian for Amlogic S912

    That's okay. Packet base network reach quickly updated. But this does not mean that you need all the time to put new versions. If everything works as it should, you can not update. It's all relative.

    Le Potato - writing armbian to eMMC

    To operate the remote control, you need your own settings file. The image contains files for TV boxes remote control models with the specified names. They're not right for you. You need to create or find a settings file for your remote control model. This is a special feature of this variant of the kernel (change in the driver settings for LE). Have you tried the latest version (from the "no-mali" directory) with kernel 4.16 ? Does sound work on your model ?

    Do and everyone will thank you. p.s. All waiting for the "good uncle", just make the whole system, collect a kernel with support for all the hardware, write a good and detailed instructions for each scenario.

    Le Potato - writing armbian to eMMC

    There is a great variety of different builds of KODI and Libreelec for different platforms (x86 , ARM, etc) and different models. This is a different system, description, for some not suitable to others. To operate your remote control, you need a settings file. See the example files (remote.conf) on a recorded medium. For KODI-17 from the composition of Armbian, the file must match the format of the driver amremote. For KODI-18, this is a different format (lirc).
