    The start system in Coreelec is not compatible with LibreELECE  Armbian  etc. If you run coreelec on your TV box, you will no longer be able to run LE and Armbian normally until the full recovery of the standard firmware via the USB Burn Tool and the new activation of the universal multi-boot, which is used in all new systems.
     
     
    The build and publication of unified test images with a common core for the Rockchip Amlogic Allwinner platform begins.

    How to run these images on the Amlogic platform .
    Now all images Armbian and LE has all the files for activate the multi-boot. Anything 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. Configure in the file (uEnv.txt) launch parameters for the desired platform and model (uncomment the desired lines and comment out or delete unused ones)
     
    If universal multi-upload has not yet been activated on this device, you need to activate it once. There are several options for activating multi-loading.
     
    option A
    - Connect the prepared media to the device and turn on the power, boot into Android
    - Open the app "Update&Backup"
    - Click on "Select" local update and chose the file on the removable media aml_autoscript.zip
    - Start "Update"
    - System will reboot twice and start running the system from external media.
     
    option B
    -  try using the "toothpick method"
     
     
    How to run these images on the Rockchip and Allwinner platform .
    1. Download the image for your device
    2. Unpack
    3. Burn the image on the medium
    4. Configure in the file (uEnv.txt) launch parameters for the desired platform and model (uncomment the desired lines and comment out or delete unused ones)
    5. If your device does not support USB startup , you can only use SD cards and you need to add the correct u-boot to the SD card (for details on how to add it, see the text of this message)
    6. Connect the prepared media to the device and turn on the power
     
    Please note that the DTB configuration order has changed.
    Now a single configuration method is used for all Rockchip Allwinner Amlogic platforms. The file (uEnv.txt) is used for configuration DTB all platforms. 
    Now a single configuration method is used for all platforms, using the file (uEnv.txt). You need to edit this file to configure it. You need to uncomment the two lines that are responsible for your platform and specify the correct DTB for your model. If you use this image to run on the one platform, you can delete it from the settings file (uEnv.txt) strings from other platforms.
     
    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.
     
    Pay attention.
    The installation algorithm in eMMC has changed. My recommend that you perform a clean installation in eMMC. Be sure to make a full backup of eMMC before installing it in eMMC.
    The system installation scripts in eMMC have changed accordingly. If you have a system with eMMC core 5 installed on RK33xx, it is advisable to perform a clean installation in eMMC to upgrade to the new version. 
     
    For the aw H6 platform, all scripts are already in the image (which have the ending aw). You need to rename the files with the replacement (remove the ".aw" ending).
     
    Fix for correct color to G12 (Amlogic S905X2 S922X)
    For models based on g12 (s905x2 s922), which have a problem not the correct color , 
    If you are starting the system from an SD card, you need to copy file  u-boot.sd to u-boot.ext,
    If you are starting the system from an USB, you need to copy file  u-boot.usb to u-boot.ext
    When installing in eMMC, you do not need to do anything with your hands, the installation script itself will perform the necessary system configuration and when running from eMMC, the system will work with the correct color.
     
    Please note, this version for the transition to the release of a single image for the platform Rockchip + Amlogic + Allwinner. The new image after writing to external media and after configuring the used dtb (and if necessary adding the desired u-boot option to run from the SD card on the Rockchip and Allwinner) can be used simultaneously on AML (s9xxx), RK (rk3399 and rk3328) and AW (H6). If the TV boxes RK (rk3328 and rk3399) and AW (H6) in eMMC installed a new version of u-boot  with support for starting the system with USB, adding u-boot to SD card is not required, the system will automatically start on with USB.
     
    Important change. With this version (>= 20200218), you can easily add the desired u-boot on any PC (including Windows) .
     
    To do this, new versions of u-boot are downloaded on the site.
     
    https://yadi.sk/d/lTbXkrmZN5Hf6g
     
    Rules for using the new u-boot option. Download, Armbian image, unpack. Write image Armbian to the SD card. Download and write the desired version of the u-boot file to SD card. Configure the DTB and the launch string (APPEND) in (uEnv.txt) for the desired model\platform.
     
    Pay attention. Now you don't need to write u-boot with complex commands, you write the u-boot image with the same program as you usually write an Armbian image. This allows you to configure the system to run (including writing a u-boot image) on any PC (including Windows).
     
    Pay attention. The new version changed the size of the partitions that are obtained when writing an image (all images have a fixed size of 5GB).  This u-boot entry option only applies to the new version 20200218 and subsequent versions. Don't try this for old images. This will not work on older images.
     
    OLD add u-boot
     
     
     
    For RK33xx
    if you have windows and can't use the add u-boot commands to the SD card, use the SD+USB combination , write only the new u-boot to the SD card, and write the Armbian image to a USB storage device. And connect them together to the TV box.
     
    To turn on the sound on models AML
    where it is not present after the initial start. To enable audio on g12  (s905x2 s922x), you only need to run the script (g12_sound.sh) or for GX\GXM models, run the script (gx_sound.sh).  You need to run the script
     
    sudo /root/g12_sound.sh
     
    For gxbb\GXL\GXM models (S905\S905X\S912), if there is no sound, you need to try running the script (gx_sound.sh)
     
    sudo /root/gx_sound.sh
     
    For those who still use older versions of images (up to 20200323), for the sound to work correctly on g12, you must first (before running the script g12_sound.sh) delete PULSEAUDIO.

    balbes150 reacted to SteeMan in how to install armbian to eMMC   
    The standard armbian documentation only applies to the standard armbian builds.  The builds by @balbes150 are a fork of the standard armbian code for Android TV boxes (instead of standard SBC boards) and therefore you can't use the standard documentation as there are a number of differences.  To install into emmc look in your /root directory and you will see a set of install scripts.  Choose the one appropriate for your CPU and run it for installation into emmc.  The current active thread of discussion for the @balbes150 builds is: 
    Please carefully read the first posting in this thread as it goes over many of the specifics that are unique or different for these android tv box builds.

    Our next release date is coming and perhaps its time to discuss what to push into 20.05, what not, resolve open questions and distract from most used keyword for past few weeks.
     
    @Myy @TonyMac32 @balbes150 @piter75 @sfx2000 @ebin-dev @count-doku @chwe @ning @lanefu @gprovost @aprayoga @5kft
    @JMCC @Werner @karabek @martinayotte @tkaiser @selfbg @Siraj ... to name just a few which might find this move useful  
     
    I am preparing a meeting on IRC in Saturday at 1 pm GMT - this is reasonable good timing for US / EU folks. The idea behind this meeting is that (ideally) everyone, who will be present, quickly present (in alphabetical nick order) what they are working (not working on anything is equally legit) on followed by a discussion. If a feature, project or a fix can be pushed into this release. Plus answer and decide on other open questions. You are welcome to expand this with a PR/change document directly. This way we could - on a long run - improve all project parameters.

    As my example -  what I am currently working and IMHO could be implemented by 20.05:
     
    - setting up auto test facility, software and hardware which is a great support tool for making releases. It is already helping me finding bugs.
    - merging mainstream kernel config in the non-hardware areas could go into this release
    - firmware split up with @ning
     
    ... more Jira's during a week.
     
    Ideally it would be that prior to this meeting you write into Jira what you are working and join discussion about your task/project/idea with a link - who does not have access shall PM to @lanefu or @Igor - reviewing and prioritising goes faster and better with Jira.

    KODI from network repositories does not have HW, so it will run slowly.
     
    The S905X without HW can provide full-screen video at a resolution of no more than 720p. If you want to watch a full-screen video with a different resolution, either build and add components with HW yourself, or use Libreelec (it supports 4K video).
     
    You need the correct DTB.

    Do you have any Armbian or LE system that can now work on your TV box from an SD card ? I can suggest that there is a problem with either the card reader or the SD card. By the way, do you have a full-size SD card or micro SD card with an adapter ? You need to check the launch from the USB flash drive. Write the image to a USB flash drive, configure the DTB, connect the previously prepared SD card and USB flash drive together, and turn on the power.
