    @Felipe Triana

    Felipe armbian uses gpt , android uses a organization of partitions called rkparameters . rk parameters are written into sector 0X02000 of the nand, just after the loader address space
    is a bit as you modified the master boot record to use mbr or uefi. This just to explain the difference between android and armbian and also this is an annoing alert repeating from the beginning of this post, saying  mxq-4k means NOTHING !!!!!!!
    Neither is possible ask a backup from a mxq-4k from other users for the reasons explained  later in this post

    Please open the bow ( 4 little screws under rubber pads) and give more info ( mx4v ? mz4vr? r329q ??) or better attach photos of the box

    If you really want go back to android ( but .. why ???   🙂  )  and if you are also a windows user or you can use windows in some way , you can use the attached windows tool and,  instead of using the backup obtained by multitool,  look for an android suitable for you board ( that despite of being called mxq-4k could be a 3228. 3228a, 3229, ddr2, ddr3 and all the hell the china market does ) !!!
    😄 🤣

    For the future, backup before any experiment !

    @n3o  As a moderator of these forums, I have been watching your postings.  You are abusing these forums and the people that contribute to them.  (Everyone, especially @RaptorSDS and @jock have been very willing to invest a lot of time to help you)   However, repeatedly you have been given specific information that you ignore, been given advise that you ignore and then you come back with more and more questions.  There are very limited people resources working on Armbian (and even less with TV boxes).  You alone are consuming way more developer time than any one individual has the right to receive.  This is open source, and therefore users are needed to contribute as much as they consume in resources from the community in order for this to work.  This is not a school where you can come to be taught how everything works, demanding the attention of everyone else to teach you. 
     
    Your latest questions are now venturing into very deep and difficult areas of code (none of which is expected to work on these TV boxes as has been mentioned to you).  If you want to continue down the path you are going, you first need to become an expert at these topics on known working platforms, then you can try to apply that expertise on TV boxes.  You may not realize it, but the questions you are asking, are essentially asking for weeks if not months of developer help to get working, if it is at all possible.

    there are some tools for linux and IR on this box it can be became complicate because GPIO and DTB and tools, relearn remote   , so on .............  
    when you are lucky the right setting are already in dtb and the tool recognise the IR comannd than you need to relearn the remote inside the tool

    I will never stress out that THESE issues reported by you are the exact reasons to chose a properly supported Single Board Computer from the officially supported list and not buy crap like supercheap tvboxes. If you don't have the time, will and skills to solve troubles, tvboxes may end up being a large source of frustration. The very same problems are the main reason tvboxes are NOT OFFICIALLY SUPPORTED and NOT ENDORSED by Armbian project; tvboxes are just a community effort to have fun with them and avoid some waste, but the mileage can vary greatly. Here are the FAQs

    @n3o  You bricked your own device and neglected to create a backup before doing so?  At this point I would think you are just trolling.  I have given up on trying to convince you that your time is better spent elswhere.   I'll let the other forum members decide for themselves if helping you is worth their time.

    Yes, this is exactly the way I suggest to take confidence with the system: erase the internal flash to zero (does not matter if NAND or eMMC) to remove any trace of Android; then use Armbian from sdcard to bring up the system, experiment with rk322x-config to setup the board correctly so, in case of mistake, just plug the sdcard in a PC and revert the error; install packages, services, reinstall armbian from scratch with another kernel or rootfs (Debian bullseye, bookworm, Ubuntu Jammy LTS, latest Ubuntu, etc...) and do all your own experiments on the sdcard.
     
    When finally you notice that the base system is stable with the proper led-conf and you're happy with the software setup, transfer it to internal flash or install armbian on internal flash with multitool.
     
    Also, IMHO, boards with NAND have much better use with external sdcard than internal flash, since NAND are supported only with ancient 4.4 kernel and they still are problematic. Keep them erased and live easier with external sdcard.

    Hi @n3o, are you using Windows? Linux ? OpenBSD? binary or compiled rkflashtool?
    This is because
    * on Linux maybe you don't have the right USB permission. You can switch to the super user account (super easy), or write an udev rule that chmod the USB node(easy if you know what are you doing)
    * my rkflashtool uses libusb which on Windows needs the generic USB driver called WinUsb. With Windows 7 you need to right-click and install this file https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ilmich/rkflashtool/master/rockwinusb.inf. With Windows > 7 there is no need to install a driver, but you need to associate the unknown device with the USB generic driver WinUsb (I'm not a Windows user so try starting reading this link https://github.com/libusb/libusb/wiki/Windows#user-content-How_to_use_libusb_on_Windows)
    * there is a bug on Windows (fixed with the latest alpha version) with multiple USB devices connected. Try, if you can, to have only the box connected with USB.
     
    About your experiments, you wrote a lot, but I'm sorry, I'm too lazy to read.
    So if I can give you some advice, format the internal storage and forget it. Write the Armbian version you like on the SD card and stop.
    This is because in addition to having a few problems, sd cards with 64/128GB are cheap and for Linux use are better than the 'little' 8 GB of internal storage that you often find in our boxes.
     
    Cheers

    @n3o  The members trying to help you are highly experienced. The important point here is for you not to treat their specific instructions as merely "suggestions" after which you go off and do your own thing.   That is where the frustration lies. 
     
    Based on the energy other users and you have spent on this, I would just buy some other TV box or SBC that is already known to run Armbian without any issues instead of trying to resurrect an old tired piece of hardware.   Unless you are really short on cash,  this is what I would do.  However, if you really are so short on cash that you cannot afford another $20USD on something else, then I believe your priorities are all wrong.
     
    I have an H20 RK3228A tv box that is in transit that has some documented booting issues with Armbian.  In a way, I am happy to see how this whole episode has progressed.  I'm happy because now I know what NOT to do.

    dear friends
    i remark that we continue to give help to someone that is not willing to listen and perhaps THIS IS FRUSTRATING and not the fact that the box is not booting

    After discovered that IF ONLY HE had followed all the instructions that very kindly the users of this 3ad suggested instead of trying other magic combinations, and after we  already said thet we need uart logs and so now I  would like remember  we said to him to stay on legacy kenel that is 4.4.xxx

    And guess !!

    He flahsed Armbian_22.11.1_Rk322x-box_jammy_current_5.15.80_xfce_desktop.img.xz
    in other words a 5.15.80 kernel

    Do we need other words?

    I had to ask my wife if I should answer in sarcastic, honest  and friendly or funny , she said be friendly , but I can not resist a little joke to start the day .
     
    /joke on , Yes when you wait 28h 73m and 98s you will have a box that do all automatic and have the power of a i9 13990KH /joke off
     
    friendly: you know what you are doing here, that will still be at 11% because that is the part of text that is display, and this page it like every other software the licenses page.
    you know that you are in a DOS box like Linux console, you have to use keyboard like in good old times and scroll down with arrow keys and hit TAB to witch cursor location and hit SPACE or ENTER
     
    If the keyboard does not work, please try another one and leave it plugged in right from the start of the box (there are still keyboards that do not work well under linux even though there is a basic driver for generic keyboards).
     
    I don't know if flashing TV boxes is for you if you already have problems with a license text, I understand that you have already flashed the SD card correctly, but this is not windows 11 which automates everything and gets you through the setup agent with mouse and keyboard.
     
    Please have in mind following :
     
    We think that people should understand that this is all at their own risk and that they need to understand something about what they are about to do like uart adapter or working with ssh or console.

    Yes I know you want a box that will boot Armbian only with insert SD card and you are fine, now we have some difficulties and you try to read all that can help and try to do things by yourself while waiting.

    You try to do the right steps but as last time please be more patient.

    Yes we now know that you have some exp in software but not linux and not this box. Yes we understand that you try to understand every step and try to be a good help but please dont mix topic.
    Not every box is the same, not every chip is the same, so not all pictures are like your box.
     
     
    Jock want the log files, not picture of the boot from mutitool and/or log file of trying direct flash armbian on sd card and then boot.

    We can not support Android or anything that comes from Android.

    Yes we are very, very short in describing what we expect in every single step we want from everyone who has problem and ask for help.
    But here are so many who just post not working and thats it or people who dont read first topic.
    And also we are write so often to try to help and we think that many have already followed that our topic is Armbian on this box or dont understand that this all is also our free time and hobby. We think that people should understand that this is all at their own risk and that they need to understand something about what they are about to do like uart adapter or working with ssh or console.

    @jock & @fabiobassa, thanks for pointing out that my device was nand, I somehow mistook it for emmc. After struggling for long time I followed the unbrick guide and I was able to recover the device by flash it with the android using Android Tool. I got a new SD card, loaded it with multitool, however there was a slight hiccup in backing up the flash on rknand as the progress bar in multitool was stuck at 0% for a very long time, so I decide to skip the backup and used focal image with legacy kernel and my box is now running armbian.

    Is suggested go find a working sd adapter because you need stePnand method by multitool
     
    As alternate method you can try to flash android image on It.
     
    You can device device for sure but need some tools as a good sd

    @TU-Student the reason why we often write .. read the first post .. is because someone has already wasted time and health trying to make everything work.
    The reason why some boxes do not boot from the sd card is because there is an old bootloader or one that does not activate the sd controller at the boot stage (often vendor's choice).
    So if you are unlucky, and multitool/armbian doesn't boot, the safest way is to delete the internal memory because in this mode (maskrom) the soc activates the sd card and starts the OS from there (99.9999999% of the time)
    If you need a backup (of a system that for me is unusable) you can use the USB OTG cable method (with tools like rkdeveloptool or my fork of rkflashtool)

    Hi all,
     
    I'm not writing to ask for help, but only to share my experience, and to thank @jock for his work in allowing us to use linux with these boxes.
    My board is an android tv with soc rk3229/NAND/DDR3/Wifi SSV6051p which I'm using as a network appliance (pihole - simple nas - network web server).
     
    I followed the instructions in the first post and understood that the NAND is not supported, I preferred to empty it to avoid old bootloader problems and installed armbian bookworm on the SD card.
    The rest is linux... I installed the software I needed and now the box provides services for my home network without any problems (and I reused hardware that otherwise would have gone in the trash).
    Thanks again @jock and of course the armbian community
     
    Cheers
