  1. My first thought is that you don't actually have emmc in your box.  You don't provide any details, so I am just guessing.  I have 'identical' TX3 Mini boxes that on one the emmc works fine and the other it is not detected.  When I opened the box, it turned out the manufacturer installed cheaper nand instead of the claimed emmc.  And mainline kernels don't support nand storage.  It is very common that boxes may not contain the components claimed (or can change randomly over time in an effort to cut production costs).  This is one of many reasons TV boxes aren't supported by Armbian. https://forum.armbian.com/topic/16976-status-of-armbian-on-tv-boxes-please-read-first/


  2. @hadestlse It is assumed that you have the knowledge and skills to build linux kernels and apply patches if you are going to attempt to do that.  If not then I wouldn't recommend trying to incorporate the patch @hexdump referenced above.  Not knowing your level of developer knowledge, I would first point you towards the Armbian developer docs. https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/


  3. Moved post to the correct forum.

    The build you are using is over 2 and a half years old.

    (Note that you may need to change the extlinux.conf file to read: "LINUX /uImage" , I am investigating an issue, but I haven't yet confirmed it on an s905x3 box like yours).


  4. @vcmsptx with the new builds (i.e. the 6.0.x kernels) try changing the extlinux.conf file to use:

    LINUX /uImage


    I noticed an issue that the u-boot currently packaged (u-boot-s905x2-s922) doesn't boot the Image binary but will boot the uImage kernal binary.  At least this is the case on my s905x2 based box.  If you can confirm this same behavior on your box, that would be helpful.
