  1. With the exception of Nvidia, The "GT king Pro" is probably the most powerful TV box on the market today. Slightly surprised there has been no further progression with an Armbian port. If there was an Armbian port with everything working. I would buy this box tomorrow to use as a desktop computer. Madasafish
  2. Thank-you Rajesh, I am aware the Tanix TX6s (H616) is a different processor to the Tanix TX6 (H6) but they both use the same sun50i. https://linux-sunxi.org/Allwinner_SoC_Family or am I barking up the wrong tree here? Madasafish.
  3. Has anyone tested on Tanix TX6s box? If not, do you believe the Tanix TX6 dtb files will work on Tanix TX6s?
  4. Is absolutely everything working on this box? LED display?, HDMI Audio?, 2.4 and 5GB Wifi?, Bluetooth?, Remote?, GPU?. Are you using the 64 bit version of Armbian?
  5. I have a X96Air P3 4/64MB with 1GB ethernet. I can confirm Wifi, Bluetooth and HDMI audio are not working with Armbian and the Ethernet speed is only 100Mb. For me, it is not a question of uptime but question of ALL things working with Armbian.
  6. That would explain it. Thank-you.
  7. My box is an X96 Air P3 with 1 GB ethernet and 4/64GB of memory. The Android 9 build version is "x96Air_P3_20191204-1754" The Android firmware is "Amlogic/franklin/franklin9/PPR1.180610.011/20191204/userdebug/test-keys/20191204/userdebug/test-keys" The above instructions you provided do work. I can confirm HDMI sound and Bluetooth are not working. What did you do to get WiFi working. On my box the Wifi is not working. The 1GB ethernet connection only connects at 100MB dmesg output attached. dmesg
  8. It's great to progress and have come a lot further thanks to "ciprian28". Having played around with the box, I notice the following components are not working. 1. Bluetooth 2. WiFi 2.4 and 5.0 3. HDMI sound 4. Ethernet 1GB speed (100MB speed is working well) I was intrigued by "5p0ng3b0b" posts on how to get the dtb files from your perfectly running android box. So I copied his "dtb_extract.sh" file to the root of the Armbian_20.05.0_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.6.0-rc4_desktop_20200306 SD card on my windows laptop. Inserted the SD card into the running android box Setup a ssh server on the android box (plenty in Playstore) Using Putty on my windows laptop, ssh to android box and su to root. Change directory to the root directory of the SD card. Easily find the mount point by doing a "df" Then run the following commands..... 1. dd if=/dev/block/recovery of=recovery.PARTITION - This will create a file called "recovery.PARTITION" 2. cat /proc/device-tree/amlogic-dt-id - which returned in my case "sm1_ac213_4g" (I believe this is name of your box's dtb file) 3. ./dtb_extract.sh ./recovery.PARTITION This created the following files g12a_u212_1g.dtb g12a_u212_2g.dtb g12a_u212_4g.dtb sm1_ac213_1g.dtb sm1_ac213_2g.dtb sm1_ac213_4g.dtb - (Eureka, I have my box's dtb file which in my case is "sm1_ac213_4g") mv *.dtb ./dtb/amlogic (Move the files from the root directory to where all the other Amlogic (in my case) files are. Edit the Uenv.txt file so that it now points to the new dtb file.... # aml s9xxx #FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-g12a-x96-max-no-cvbs.dtb #FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-g12b-ugoos-am6-no-cvbs.dtb #FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-g12b-odroid-n2.dtb #FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb FDT=/dtb/amlogic/sm1_ac213_4g.dtb APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fi ~ Save the file and reboot the box. Did it work? - No - Only green screen. Attached are the newly created dtb files for the "X96_Air_P3" box. Hopefully someone more learned than me can find these useful. g12a_u212_1g.dtb g12a_u212_2g.dtb g12a_u212_4g.dtb sm1_ac213_1g.dtb sm1_ac213_2g.dtb sm1_ac213_4g.dtb
  9. Thank-you ciprian28. It's good to see the Armbian penguin.
  10. If anyone has a working Armbian "desktop" X96 Air P3 4/64GB box. Can you please tell me which "image + dtb + any other files" you used to get it to work. The current Android build for this box is as follows if this helps. x96Air_P3_20191204-1754 - Build Number Amlogic/franklin/franklin9/PPR1.180610.011/20191204/userdebug/test-keys/20191204/userdebug/test-keys. If it helps anyone, the box does work with everything working using Coreelec nightly build and the Air96_P3 dtb file but I am seeking a desktop environment and not a Kodi environment. Kind regards, Madasafish
  11. Using X96 Air 4/64GB running Android 9 box which is Amlogic S905x3 1. Downloaded "Armbian_20.05.0-trunk_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.5.1_20200227.img" 2. Burnt the image to micro SD using Win32diskImager 3. Edited uEnv.txt in the boot partition of the micro SD card. (shown below) LINUX=/zImage INITRD=/uInitrd # aml s9xxx #FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-g12a-x96-max-no-cvbs.dtb #FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-g12b-ugoos-am6-no-cvbs.dtb FDT=/dtb/amlogic/meson-sm1-sei610.dtb APPEND=root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0 4. Renamed the following files "boot.ini" to "boot.ini-" "S905_autoscript" to S905_autoscript-" "u-boot.usb" to "u-boot.usb-" in the boot partition of the micro SD card. 5. Downloaded NicoD's "bootS905X3.7z" file and extracted it to the boot partition of the micro SD card. 6. Safely ejected the micro SD card. 7. Booted the X96 Air box using the the toothpick method to load from micro SD card. The X96 Air box does not boot. Just goes into 5 second loops with the HDMI being connected (dark screen with donut of death) and HDMI disconnected. If I boot the box into Android 9 and use the update app to install "aml_autoscript.zip", I get dead robot with error saying "map of @/cache/recovery/block.map failed" Have I missed a step? Can anyone please advise? NicoD bootS905X3.7z file
