  1. I have been playing with this issue for other reasons today. You should be able to restore the default u-boot environment by the following uboot commands: env default -a saveenv Since I doubt you have a serial connection to your box allowing you to debug/monitor u-boot, you can cause these commands to be run by using the attached aml_autoscript file. If you put this file on your usb stick and use the 'adb reboot update' that should run the above commands which are contained in that special aml_autoscript file. After that you can restore the original armbian aml_autoscript file to your usb stick and do the 'adb reboot update' with that one and then you should have a working armbian environment. aml_autoscript
  2. Yes a firmware for that device. It is unlikely that a firmware for a different device will work, even if they share the same cpu.
  3. First you need to read the following TV Box FAQ items: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17106-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus Note in particular from the instructions posted above, that because you have previously run coreelec you will need to find an original android firmware and reinstall that to reset the boot environment to its default state. coreelec and armbian make incompatible changes to the boot environment and you can't use armbian after coreelec. Otherwise, while I haven't heard of anyone running armbian on this box, given the steps you did to get coreelec running, the same should work for armbian. The hack of using "adb reboot update" should have the same effect as the toothpick method to set the multiboot uboot environment variables.
  4. I don't think you understand. First your device isn't supported. Per the previous discussions on the site that I linked and you confirmed you read, no one has successfully installed armbian on your device. And finally the information contained in the previous posts indicates that it isn't possible to put armbian on your device. This is open source, so feel free to work on this yourself if you desire, but you aren't going to get any additional help from armbian maintainers on this.
  5. Armbian doesn't support upgrades between releases of ubuntu or debian. Having said that you can search the forum for others who have asked this same question. While it can be done manually there are things to watch out for. Make sure you have a backup in case things go wrong.
  6. This device is not a supported by Armbian. I moved this post to unsupported -> Off Topic. A search of the forum leads to the following two older discussions about this device: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/9606-new-life-for-jide-remix-mini-a64-unsupported https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12378-which-version-to-download
  7. Are you sure that the last batch was an Orange PI 3, not the new Orange PI 3 LTS - similar names but slightly different boards with different Armbian builds.
  8. This isn't a valid issue for the following reasons:. First this report is not for an official Armbian build, second this is an issue in user space software (Ubuntu in this case) not an Armbian issue.
  9. You need to use the Amlogic USB Burning Tool to install the original firmware. Google for examples on where to download and how to reinstall an android firmware on an Amlogic based TV Box.
  10. Closing this very old thread. Feel free to open new posts for the older S805/S812 amlogic cpu based TV Boxes
  11. @mcb777 Please note that posting such resources (i.e. the ophub build "amlogic-s9xxx-armbian" above) in this forum can be insulting towards Armbian developers since the developers behind ophub do not participate in the Armbian development effort nor these forums. In fact they use the Armbian name for their fork without permission. The concern being that users of these other code bases will turn to these forums for support not knowing the code they are running is not Armbian and burden our already scarce resources. I would ask you not to post such links in the Armbian forums in the future.

    Odroid C1

    Here is the link for archived builds for the C1: https://archive.armbian.com/odroidc1/archive/
  13. The short answer is if a board doesn't have anyone who has volunteered to be the maintainer for that board it is not longer support, until someone steps up to volunteer to be a maintainer. https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Board-Support-Rules/
  14. The screenshot you included looks normal. You have a functioning command line terminal available to use. I'm assuming (since you don't say what image you have installed) that you have installed a command line image (non- desktop).
  15. Moved posts to proper forum (Allwinner TV Boxes from Rockchip TV Boxes)
  16. @Byzor Please follow the instructions in the following FAQ entry: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17106-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus The rest of the information in this thread should still be relevant.
  17. @Mister 3o5 Please read the following TV box FAQ items: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first/#comment-118794 https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17106-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus/ Also, the best advice I can give is to look at the following mega thread dealing with the s805 CPU and TV boxes, but note no one has really worked on these for a couple of years. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/3023-armbian-for-amlogic-s805-and-s802s812
  18. @aKingabut Please read the two Tv box forum FAQ posts to understand the status of tv boxes under Armbian (short version don't expect any support and balbes150 has moved on from his working with amlogic CPUs) https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first/#comment-118794 https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17106-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus
  19. @javaxsousa I don't see any comments above that indicate anyone is successful booting armbian onto a h96max h616 based box. I see a lot of posts about how things don't work and lots of people trying different patch sets, but I don't see anyone having success.
  20. You have downloaded the server version (command line interface only). What you want is one of the downloads with *desktop* in the name, like: Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_focal_current_5.9.0_desktop.img.xz Note: there is no buster desktop version, only bullseye and focal desktops.
  21. Moved post to TV box forum. Armbian doesn't support TV Boxes. See the info on this FAQ post: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first Also note that this is a new soc by allwinner, and it often takes years for the open source world to support new socs. The h616 soc that came out a couple years ago is still not well supported. And I suspect that this new soc is a 32bit soc, which means it may never be well supported, as it seems most work these days is focussed on 64bit CPUs.
  22. @b13 Please read the following TV Box FAQ post to understand the status of TV Boxes on armbian. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first Then feel free to search the archives for what others have experienced.
  23. @Max Sterg If your box has a rockchip 3228 then you are in the wrong forum. This forum is for boxes with amlogic cpus. You should look at the following forum: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12656-csc-armbian-for-rk322x-tv-boxes The first post has the instructions on how to install on a rk3228 tv box.
  24. @zchrish I would suggest starting with reading the Tv box forum faq items: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first/#comment-118794 and https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17106-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus/#comment-140648
