  1. 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 ?
  2. 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 !
  3. I suppose you're speaking about this file: And I think that Ethernet is not fixed on this version. It will be interessing to compare these 2 .dts files: 1. Audio fix: 2. Ethernet fix (100Mb):
  4. 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
  5. 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 !
  6. 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
  7. Already done: 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: 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 !
  8. And what's the boot result for each one ?
  9. 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 !
  10. What's the result thse 2 commands: - ifconfig - ethtool eth0 Moreover, did you try with meson-sm1-sei610.dtb ?
  11. Yes, you're right. On this picture (, this is without the shielding !
  12. 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 (, 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 !
  13. 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 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) !
  14. 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: But the last version is 5.6.1 for kernel version ( and mine is 5.7.0. Do you think that I can try this solution in spite of this ? Thanks in advance
  15. Thanks for your feedback. I'm not sure what is your chipset: RTL871X / RTL8188F / rtl8189fs (anyway different than mine: rtl8822cs)
  16. 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
  17. 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 !
  18. Hello, I think you have this error with Android update method !!! Not possible to boot with toothpick method on X96 Max ?
  19. Here, if I'm right ! But, for a 1st trial, the good way is to try the most recent version (link on the 1st page)
  20. Ok, that means for your box, forget the way of the file boot.ext or boot.usb. If you have tried without success the DTB file with ethernet fix (meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb), then the command "sudo ethtool –s eth0 speed 100 duplex full autoneg on" doesn't help you because these value are the same than meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb. I think you need to know the name of your Ethernet chipset to find the right drivers of it. Without keyboard, you can check directly on the PCB of the box or with a keyboard, you make this command "armbianmonitor -u" and check into the created report (example:
  21. Sorry to read that. With meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb, the speed is already fixed to 100Mb. This is why your command with ethtool didn't change the issue. You can check the parameters with ifconfig. No, I didn't change any parameter with meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb. No other way to check with each DTB file into Amlogic folder !
  22. This one from Ciprian28: Don't forget to declare it into uEnv.txt You shouldn't rename but copy it before and after rename this copie to u-boot.ext That means on the SD card, you have the file and the u-boot.ext file
  23. I was facing to the same Ethernet issue with meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb and the problem has been solved when I have copied file to u-boot.ext on the SD card. I don't understand the reason because I was thinking that you need to add the "u-boot.ext" file if the system doesn't want to boot or color issue but not for an ethernet issue. Maybe @balbes150 can confirm the relation between this missing file and some others issues.
  24. 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 ! )
  25. 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
