  1. More details about the boot issue (SD ou USB support, toothpick or android update method, blackscreen or error message...) will be appreciated ! To simplify, describe all steps that you have done to try to install Armbian (maybe as this kind of detailled example: I know this is mine ! )
  2. Great news !!! I have chosen this box (X96air, s905x3, 4/32GB) a little bit by chance. I wanted the SoC S905x3 and 4G of RAM. The best price (~35€) was for it ! I have installed Armbian Buster since 1 week (connected 24h/24) but without loag (only domotic server but without scenarios) and for the moment, no issue ! Do you have modify the cooling (heatsink) ? Currently, my temperature is 47°. Moreover, If you have any tips for this box (wireless, bluetooth, ethernet (currently fixed at 100Mb)....), I would appreciate it if you could share. Greetings
  3. So, with armbian-config command, "enable armbian upgrades" is enough to have a system up to date ?
  4. Hello, I have done a new installation with Buster (Armbian_20.05.4_Arm-64_buster_current_5.7.0-rc6_20200519.img with meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb) because for my domotic system (Jeedom), buster is recommanded. Now, this is OK but I need to know if I must update regulary my "Buster system" ? If Yes, the dedicated command is: sudo apt-get --allow-releaseinfo-change update

    Hello, I'm not an expert and could imagine that the problem is on the auto-detection of the HDMI screen into the boot.ini but you have spoken about a post from @balbes150 to try without HDMI cable plugged during the 2 first seconds of the boot, that means @balbes150 has a best view than me related to the issue. Please to wait his feedback ! During this time, you can try another kernel for example.
  6. I think you will be able to find the wireless chipset with this command: armbianmonitor -u Into my report, I suppose that the wireless ( + Bluetooth = combo) chipset is rtl8822cs

    I had some issues (and not only color as mentioned) without to do it: If you are starting the system from an SD card, you need to copy file u-boot.sd to u-boot.ext, Normally, the file u-boot.sd is already on your SD card and there is no risk to try it ! You can also try another dtb file: example ?

    Hello, Did you make this step ? Copy u-boot.sd to u-boot.ext
  9. Hello, After I'm using the meson-g12a-x96-max-no-cvbs DTB file with forcing the ethernet speed to 100Mb (sudo ethtool –s [device_name] speed 100 duplex full autoneg on) but after several tests, the ethernet connection was not stable (poor download speed). Therefore, I have tried several DTB file with SD card booting and best results were confirmed with meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb. To avoid to transfer the SD installation to eMMC, I have choosen to add the DTB file and Edit uEnv.txt directly on the eMMC. PS: @balbes150, you can move the posts here (from comment-101922 to comment-101969). Greetings
  10. Yes, you're right, I got tangled. Now, this is OK ! @balbes150, maybe this is better if I create a specific topic for my issues and if you can move these posts on it ?
  11. I can not access to dtb directory It's in blue
  12. I suppose that witht the commande mount /boot is from SD Card and not from eMMC ? So, I think I have found how to mount eMMC partition: root@arm-64:~# lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT mmcblk1 179:0 0 59.5G 0 disk ├─mmcblk1p1 179:1 0 512M 0 part /boot └─mmcblk1p2 179:2 0 58.4G 0 part / mmcblk2 179:32 0 29.1G 0 disk ├─mmcblk2p1 179:33 0 488M 0 part └─mmcblk2p2 179:34 0 28G 0 part mmcblk2boot0 179:64 0 4M 1 disk mmcblk2boot1 179:96 0 4M 1 disk zram0 254:0 0 50M 0 disk /var/log zram1 254:1 0 1G 0 disk [SWAP] root@arm-64:~# mount /dev/mmcblk2p2 /mnt root@arm-64:~# lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT mmcblk1 179:0 0 59.5G 0 disk ├─mmcblk1p1 179:1 0 512M 0 part /boot └─mmcblk1p2 179:2 0 58.4G 0 part / mmcblk2 179:32 0 29.1G 0 disk ├─mmcblk2p1 179:33 0 488M 0 part └─mmcblk2p2 179:34 0 28G 0 part /mnt mmcblk2boot0 179:64 0 4M 1 disk mmcblk2boot1 179:96 0 4M 1 disk zram0 254:0 0 50M 0 disk /var/log zram1 254:1 0 1G 0 disk [SWAP] root@arm-64:~# cd /mnt root@arm-64:/mnt# How can I copy meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb from SD Card to same folder on eMMC ?
  13. I have tried: - meson-g12a-x96-max-rmii.dtb ==> Boot OK but Ethernet NOK (cannot get device settings from ethtool eth0 command) - meson-g12b-ugoos-am6-no-cvbs.dtb ==> Boot NOK (stays on green screen) - meson-g12b-odroid-n2.dtb ==> Boot NOK (stays on green screen) - meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb (from Ciprian28) ==> Boot OK and Ethernet OK (already fixed at 100Mb) Now, How Can I test deeper the ethernet connection ?
  14. To be honest, when I read your comment, I was not "hot" to follow your recommendations because I suppose that I make the manual change only 1x and this is fix definitively. But, I have tried to install a French domotic server (Jeedom) but I have some troubles with ethernet connection: Therefore, I will try your suggestion: meson-g12a-x96-max-rmii.dtb After booting on SD card: - How can I test deeply the ethernet connection (before to transfer the installtion on the eMMC) ? - When this is OK, Can I make directly the installation on the eMMC over the previous one ?
  15. On my X96 Air, I have installed Armbian (without desktop) like this: 1. Boot from SD card: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/7/?tab=comments#comment-101885 2. Boot from eMMC: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/8/?tab=comments#comment-101897
