  1. @Tribal_ Since TV boxes are not supported by Armbian, no one likely knows. But if you can run the community aml-s9xx-box builds on your box, these extensions should work as well. I run HA on other amlogic based TV boxes without issue. Try it out and see how it goes and report back.
  2. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first https://forum.armbian.com/topic/33676-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus
  3. How about you start with the build you are using and what instructions you are using?
  4. Issues? Are we supposed to guess what issues you are having?
  5. These are not Armbian images. Where did you get them? This is not part of any Armbian image. Images prior to current nightlies and after 23.02 are known not to work with the s905x3 based boxes. But current nightly builds should work.
  6. @audio kees You really need to take your questions elsewhere. You are off topic for this thread. Please take your libreelec questions to to their support channels. If you want to talk armbian on raspberry pi then open a new thread in the proper location in these forums.
  7. Please start by explaining the exact issue you are having. Including all versions of the components.
  8. If you can connect and the firmware upload starts but fails and this works on another device, I think you have faulty hardware.
  9. Does the tool connect, see your box? and allow you to choose your android firmware image file to upload? What options are you choosing during the burn?
  10. Find an original android firmware for your box and use the amlogic USB burning tool with a USB male to USB male cable
  11. My understanding is that post 23.11, only supported boards get stable releases. All community maintained boards, like this one, only get rolling releases going forward.
  12. What build are you using? What instructions are you following?
  13. You should submit a PR (you have already found the code location and have the change in mind), just formalize your request into a PR. https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute
  14. I'm not aware of an armbian-ddbr. ddbr is what Armbian ships with.
  15. @Andr1k If you have one of the community nightly builds installed, you should be able to apt update/apt upgrade to the current build and then apt install linux-headers-current-xxxx. At least that works for me, but I work with amlogic boxes, not the rockchip ones.
  16. What do you mean by this? And what image did you put on your SD card? Also are you following the instructions in the FAQ: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/33676-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus
  17. It depends on what you mean by normal. Currently the OVERLAY_PREFIX for this board is set to: OVERLAY_PREFIX="sun50i-h616" as the overlays are currently being shared between the h616 and h618. So if you rename the overlay with that prefix it should be picked up by armbian-config.
  18. Try a different SD card. I've seen with recent kernels that a lot of SD cards that I have are no longer are working, especially 64G and larger cards. It you have a high quality 16G or 32G SD card try that. I don't have this board so my suggestion may be completely wrong but it would be interesting to hear your results.
  19. It depends. Generally if you follow the installations instructions posted in the FAQ section on this site, then yes it is supported in most cases. The one case that is known not to work is for the first generation of the s905 CPUs. Chips labeled s905. The second, third and beyond generations should be fine. So the s905x (w,d,l, etc), s905x2, etc should work. Just the first gen s905 is known not to work.
  20. I suspect this is the same issue as recently reported here:
  21. That is not an Armbian build. Ophub is a fork of Armbian that continues to use the Armbian name without permission. They do not participate in Armbian development, nor do they participate in these forums. You need to contact them for support of their builds.
  22. @Victorhtf yes it is always located there. What build are you using?
  23. It sounds to me as if you may have used armbian-config to copy the root filesystem to emmc, but didn't copy the boot environment over. So you may have had a working environment with boot from SD, but everything else on emmc. Then when you forced the change of the boot uuid, you now have a broken system as there may not be a boot environment installed on emmc. But since I don't know the exact options you used in armbian-config this is only a guess.
  24. @hex_messer submit a PR. https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute
  25. @Mancas Welcome. You should start here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first and then here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/33676-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus/
