  1. The developer that provided those builds and that link has pulled it down as he no longer wants his work to be used.
  2. If you look in the directory you downloaded from (https://users.armbian.com/balbes150/aw-h6-tv/) you will find there is also a bullseye desktop build there. The developer that was working on these builds is no longer working with TV boxes, thus these builds are the last and now over a year old. So there are no security updates for the linux kernel, it is what it is.
  3. Where did you download from? What was the name of the file you downloaded?
  4. Please read: Of all TV Boxes allwinner based ones have the least support by the community.
  5. Another factor is that at least as far as the armbian builds go, there is no uboot suitable for your box available. It isn't feasible/possible to build uboots for the hundreds of different tv box hardware configurations out there (and the tv box manufacturers don't release their source for their android uboots), so the uboot on the armbian build sd card is basically just a place holder (generic uboot that 100% is guaranteed not to work for your box). The whole armbian amlogic tv box strategy is to use the uboot that comes with the tv box on emmc. So if you are trying to get something working from sd, it isn't going to be armbian unless you can get your emmc working again.
  6. If your emmc is not working, I don't think you can. My understanding is that these amlogic boxes basically are hard coded to look for uboot on emmc. That is why the aml-s9xx-box builds use the emmc uboot to then chain load the distribution from sd/usb/etc. It is always using the emmc uboot initially. If your emmc is working, you should use recovery to reinstall the android uboot and then you could move on from there. But in your case you have already tried that, and it didn't work (likely indicating that your emmc is not working). Based on your comments, it sounds like you have previously reinstalled the android firmware, so you know that process used to work (the reason I am stating this, is that sometimes different boards/firmware combinations require specific versions of the amlogic burning tool)
  7. I still don't understand what you are asking. Why do you mention Batoceda if you are trying to use Armbian. Both are linux distributions, it is one or the other. As for Armbian on an OrangePi PC have you tried the builds and instructions for your device located here: https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-pc
  8. If you have armbian running on the box from the sd card, you should be able to install home assistant following their instructions. My son just did this on a box of mine, and he used the docker install of home assistant and it works fine.
  9. @Juan C. Guarnizo B I would first point you to this FAQ item on status of TV boxes under Armbian: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first Second I would point out that the builds you reference are old (the newest is over a year old). No one that I am aware of is currently spending any time on TV boxes under allwinner with armbian, and the builds you reference are not official Armbian builds, but builds produced by a community developer outside official Armbian distribution channels. So unless someone else from the community responds, you will need to have the skills to figure this out on your own, given the work jernej has provided.
  10. armbian-install will not work on amlogic tv boxes. Please follow the instructions here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17106-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus Also, why did you abort the first run setup steps? You may have left your box in an incomplete state that could cause issues in the future. On further thought, I think your box has the s905 cpu. And installation to emmc isn't possible on this cpu. The next generation amlogic cpus (s905x) are supported for internal emmc install.
  11. Since as you say you are not using armbian but Bateceda, the Armbian forums are not the proper place for your question. You should ask your question in the Bateceda forums.
  12. To your original question, have you tried different usb ports on the box? Also, have you tried installing armbian-firmware-full?
  13. Since I don't have this hardware, I can't incorporate and test code like this for inclusion into base Armbian.
  14. @Zoltán Palkó Since this is a community project, PRs that include things like this to improve Armbian are very welcomed.
  15. Since you are posting in the TV Box sub-forum, I'm assuming you are talking about a TV Box. But you have't provided any informaion about your setup. What TV Box do you have, what version of Armbian do you have (by version I mean the name of the image you downloaded, and where downloaded from).
  16. Where are you looking? I only see one desktop build - xfce (although a Debian version and an Ubuntu version). You probably would be best suited using the dtb from this thread. Otherwise the instructions say to try them all and see which works best (note that s905x3 is meson-sm1).
  17. Providing logs with armbianmonitor -u helps with troubleshooting and significantly raises chances that issue gets addressed.
  18. @luxix That link is for the s905w cpu which is a different cpu than the s905w2
  19. Please don't keep creating new user accounts. As a new user you get one post per day, to avoid spam. After a while those new user restrictions are automatically removed.
  20. Generally this means that you are holding the reset button too long. When powered with the reset button pressed it should after a few seconds 'reboot' at that time you can release it. If you continue to hold for an extended period of time it will go to the android recovery.
  21. You need to go to the Inovato site for questions/support. Per their website: "IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have any questions or problems with this process, by all means use the Armbian Forums to search for information, but please DO NOT ask questions if you can't find your answer. They don't support the Quadra firmware: We do. So please use the Support category on this forum."
  22. More specifically, you downloaded from a site that is not Armbian. They are a fork of armbian, but continue to use the Armbian name without permission. They do not participate in these forums. There is no way we can help you since you aren't using Armbian, you will need to go to the location you downloaded your build from and get help there.
  23. Please tell us what you have done. You have provided no information for us to help you debug your issue. What build are you using, what steps have you done to get to the point you mentioned?
