  1. Hello @Pic55, Thanks for your feedback. I didn't find the solution from Manjaro for WIFI. Are you able to help me ? Moreover, for Bluetooth, this is also functional ? (because this is a combo chip Wifi/BT). Thanks in advance
  2. Yes ! All details on the 1st page of this topic: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/13772-x96-air-specifics-only/?tab=comments#comment-101907
  3. Hello The driver for rtl88x2 seems to be not compatible with armbian: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/15376-methods-to-fix-x96-max-pluss905x3-gigabit-ethernet-problem/?tab=comments#comment-109815 So, this is necessary to wait !
  4. If you are able to see these 2 drives (ROOT_EMMC and BOOT_EMMC) after booting with the SD Card, that means your eMMC is broken (I was in the same situation here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/7/?tab=comments#comment-101796) Moreover, to boot from an SD card, you need to copy file u-boot.sd to u-boot.ext. But after, to copy the installation on the eMMC, doesn't touch any file (even u-boot files) !
  5. Hello, No error at this end of eMMC installation ? Some answers here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/7/?tab=comments#comment-101887 Moreover, on my X96 (Air 4/32Gb version), the most efficient file is meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb (ethernet speed is fixed at 100Mb because 1000Mb doesn't work on this kind of box). I suppose that your bootloader in eMMC is broken now and you need to reinstall the android firmware to get to a clean starting point. For that, you need the stock firmware of your box, USB cable Male<->Male and USB Burning Tool. Good luck !
  6. Hello, To be honest, I don't understand your problem and your question (especially related to the stock firmware). If you need some help for Android (https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=929205) or for Armbian (https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=929205&st=12220#entry97197782) ! PS: Please to translate the page of the Russian forum to find firmware and instructions for your box
  7. Hello Diamond, Did you try this version https://github.com/RinCat/RTL88x2BU-Linux-Driver ? Moreover, there are some instructions !
  8. Hello, When you wrote " wired network 100m ok", that means you have fixed the speed to 100M with ethtool command or this is already fixed into the dtb file itself ? What's exactly your question ? Do you search a dtb file able to have ethernet connection to 1000M ?
  9. Personally, I release the toothpick 2s after connected the power supply. When the methog is failed, the box is booting on the eMMC firmware (Android for example) and when Armbian (dtb or others) is failed, there is a green or black screen !
  10. I suppose you're speaking about this file: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/9/?tab=comments#comment-104473 And I think that Ethernet is not fixed on this version. It will be interessing to compare these 2 .dts files: 1. Audio fix: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12919-x96-max-g12a-or-sm1-dtb-files/?tab=comments#comment-94878 2. Ethernet fix (100Mb): https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-94355
  11. In case of USB, use this for the step 2: If you are starting the system from an USB, you need to copy file u-boot.usb to u-boot.ext And Yes, only 100M for Ethernet
  12. Thanks to have look ! Yes, I've searched and same result. After 5.6.0, the next version is directly 5.6.2. So, this is not my eyes !
  13. Hello @balbes150, I do not find any AML version with kernel 5.6.1 (5.6.0. in 4th-April and 5.6.2 in 8th-April). Please to indicate me that if there is an AML version with kernel 5.6.1 ! Thanks in advance
  14. Already done: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/7/?tab=comments#comment-101885 But the dtb was not correct (some issues with Ethernet) so, replace the step 3 with meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb (download and copy it into dtb/amlogic folder of the SD card) as indicated here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12988-armbian-for-amlogic-s905x3/page/8/?tab=comments#comment-101921 3. Modify uEnv.txt to choose meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb file in amlogic section: And the ethernet speed is already fixed with meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb, therefore the step 6 is not needed. Enjoy !
  15. And what's the boot result for each one ?
  16. Did you force the parameter to 100M ? Anyway, 1000M is not working (address IP issue if I'm remerber well) on this box ! Into meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb, the speed parameter is fixed to 100M !
  17. What's the result thse 2 commands: - ifconfig - ethtool eth0 Moreover, did you try with meson-sm1-sei610.dtb ?
  18. Yes, you're right. On this picture (http://www.noelshack.com/2020-25-5-1592600903-img-20200412-132949.jpg), this is without the shielding !
  19. Thanks for your feedback. As indicated into my 1st post (REPORT), into the Armbian report, I have several annotations related to Bluetooth and Wifi chipset with RTL8822CS. Moreover, into this Russian forum (https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=969746&st=1660), this is indicated that for X96 Air P3 (my model), there are 2 combo chipset: RTL8822CS --> picture or Fn-Link 6222B-SRC -- > picture This is why I'm so confident about the chipset version !
  20. Hello SteeMan, I'm not sure to really understand your post. I don't want absolutely all features but I'm trying to improve the situation. For the moment, I don not need the Wifi but if I do not know in the future ! And you're right. I'm not sure about the chipset name I have tried these commands: sudo apt update sudo apt install dkms bc git git clone https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2bu sudo dkms add ./rtl88x2bu sudo dkms install -m rtl88x2bu -v 5.6.1 But unfortunately, I'm facing to an error related to Kernel version (5.7.0 requested) !
  21. Hello, I have installed Buster version on the eMMC of my X96 Air (4/32 Go). And unfortunately, no WIFI due to some errors with the Wireless chipset RTL8822cs (my report HERE) I have found this discussions about this driver: https://askubuntu.com/posts/1067500/revisions But the last version is 5.6.1 for kernel version (https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2bu) and mine is 5.7.0. Do you think that I can try this solution in spite of this ? Thanks in advance
  22. Thanks for your feedback. I'm not sure what is your chipset: RTL871X / RTL8188F / rtl8189fs (anyway different than mine: rtl8822cs)
  23. I have also an X96 Air (4/32 Go) and with armbian-config, I'm not able to see the wireless network: my view And into my report with "armbianmonitor -u", I can see a warning with the Bluetooth / Wireless chipset (rtl8822cs): my report What's your Bluetooth / Wireless chipset ? Which dtb file did you select ? Thanks in advance
  24. meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb solves some ethernet issues of meson-sm1-sei610.dtb (Eth0 visible but no connection). What'is the result of ifconfig command ? Please to try other dtb file !
  25. Hello, I think you have this error with Android update method !!! Not possible to boot with toothpick method on X96 Max ?
