  1. Hi @manuti How did you do that? I mean what kind of tool and command that you used to force next boot using uSD card from android? many thanks
  2. I mean what is your step by step? I did everything, but I always ended up with blank screen (Black screen). Here's what I did: 1. Download the Compiled image by @Ernest Kusa 2. Burn to MMC Card via Etcher 3. Plug MMC Card to MXQ Pro 4K Allwinner H3 Slot 4. Plug MXQ Pro 4K Allwinner H3 to the power cord 5. Press and hold the reset button 6. Blank Screen, but the LED is blue, not red However, If I release the MMC Card and restart (un-plug then re-plug the power cord), the box immediately boot into android. Is there anything that I missed in the process for this box?
  3. Hi, I have a similar MXQ 4K like yours. But I couldn't boot up using the image. How did you boot to Armbian via USB or MMC? I got a blank screen (black) if I press the reset button to load armbian from USB or MMC Card
  4. I can confirm that Neverball and Neverputt are working very well in XFCE4. While supertuxkart is very laggy. I just realized that upgrading to kernel 5.7 broke the Audio in X96 Max+, using the previous dtb in this forum: "meson-sm1-sei610-2.dtb" @TheMojoMan: Did you also get the problem with the audio after upgrade to 5.7? @rforcen: use the dtb I mentioned above: "meson-sm1-sei610-2.dtb" or the "meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb" from thiis forum. Just read the previous post. I also posted a step by step to install Armbian in X96 Max+ here: Read those step by step and the revision that I made based on everyone suggestion
  5. I have tested that currently for x96 Max+ Panfrost is only working in: "Ubuntu Wayland" in "glmark2-es2-wayland" Other than that, it still uses LLVMpipe. That's my update. Many thanks
  6. After installing ubuntu-desktop environment I was stuck in the Gnome session and could not go back to XFCE4. Then, I installed cinnamon desktop and mate desktop environment: Now I can login to XFCE4, Ubuntu Wayland, Cinnamon and Mate Desktop Environment. PS: If you have conflict during installing the cinnamon, use Aptitude instead:

  8. I can confirm that panfrost is not working for X96 Max+. I used the latest image build from Focal kernel 5.7 with no success. I followed the tutorial from @TheMojoMan @m][sko @NicoD but still cannot manage to get the panfrost working in this board. It keeps using LLVM as renderer. However, I found a better graphic performance after upgrading to Oibaf PPA drivers. Now I can orbit and move object in Blender 2.8x, I can orbit and draw a BIM Object in FreeCAD and also I can open 3D file analysis from Paraview. Whereas before this procedure, those attempts were almost impossible to do. In conclusion, Rightnow upgrading the driver to oibaf PPA gives you a boost in performance although Panfrost is not working yet.
  9. I want to answer this issue: It seems the problem is my SD Card is damaged. I use F3 Probe and found out that my SD Card is "Damaged" Therefore when reading a specific sector it froze my Armbian. Solution: Change to a new SD Card
  10. I agree with @TheMojoMan, Here's my complete report in Manjaro Arm Forum: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/wifi-on-x96-max/150193 FYI, after the fresh update now wifi is working via wifi dongle. The built-in wifi is not working yet. If you want to install i.e. WPS Office, you can build it via AUR package. But you have to use "wps-office-cn" and you have to modify the Build Package Link, because the current link is broken. Where as in Armbian you can just download the Arm64 version from here: https://linux.wps.cn/ Then download the Arm Version: https://wdl1.cache.wps.cn/wps/download/ep/Linux2019/9615/wps-office_11.1.0.9615_arm64.deb The Website is in Chinese, but the Package is in English. Hope that helps
  11. Sounds Great! Is there any way to upgrade from 20.05_bionic to this new image? or you have to reflash the image to the card? Thanks to the Armbian Team for this great job!
  12. Thanks mate!!! This is awesome, I have change the dtb to "sm1-sei610.dtb" then open Alsamixer, I just figured it out that I have to tweak the mixer manually by unmuting and increasing the volume. Now my HDMI audio works perfectly, but the Audio Jack still does not work. I think I have fixed this issue by using @uropb fix. I think we have to wait until the next release. I also want to add my report. I just figured it out, that my Armbian is randomly freeze, like every in 2-3 hours. Something that is strange is that, I can move my cursor but somehow I cannot click anything. Even I am able to enter TTY 1-6, but whenever I want to login I could not login to type "reboot". When I press ctrl+alt+f7 I will go back to the main window, but I could not click anything. Strange isn't it? Therefore I have to unplug my adaptor during this time. Is there any clever way to reboot without having to unplug my power? because I am afraid that this will break the hardware easily. FYI: reset button does not work in Linux.
  13. Armbian in X96 Max+ (Almost Perfect) Screenshot Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17iatyUGVZbK8R7TJ9b0h7gf1qe1QYb53/view Thanks to Armbian Team, Finally I can Install Armbian in my lovely X96 Max+ almost perfectly. Here's what I did: - Download the image Arm-64_bionic_current from this link: https://yadi.sk/d/_rQgn_FosYuW0g/20.05/20200326 - Flash the downloaded image to an "MMC card" by using Balena Etcher : https://www.balena.io/etcher/ - From BOOT Partition, rename "u-boot.sd" to "u-boot.ext" - From BOOT Partition, edit file "uEnv.txt" and make sure you are in this line "# aml s9xxx" (then edit the dtb to your preference. In my case I use "meson-g12a-x96-max-rmii". I think this is my best option after several trials) - Then insert your "MMC card" into the slot. - Use a tooth stick then find the AV jack hole to find the reset button inside the hole - Plug in the adaptor to the cord while pressing the reset button using the tooth stick, until you can find Armbian Boot Screen - For the first time, insert USER = root, PASSWORD = 1234 - Then follow the instruction and enter your user ID, password, etc. - Once you are inside Armbian for the first time, open terminal and type : sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade - Then I would advise to install Flatpak and Gnome Software, to get the updated apps: sudo apt install flatpak sudo apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo - Then reboot your device. - Now let's partially fix the graphics acceleration using panfrost (Thanks to Speakerguy, he was very helpful from this forum: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/wifi-on-x96-max/150193/10) sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-panfrost.conf then insert this text: Section "Device" Identifier "Default Device" Driver "modesetting" Option "AccelMethod" "glamor" ### "glamor" to enable 3D acceleration, "none" to disable. EndSection Section "ServerFlags" Option "AutoAddGPU" "off" Option "Debug" "dmabuf_capable" EndSection Section "OutputClass" Identifier "Panfrost" MatchDriver "meson" # sun4i-drm rockchip Driver "modesetting" Option "PrimaryGPU" "true" EndSection then press ctrl+o to save, then ctrl+x to exit To be honest, although the 3D Acceleration is not working, but the graphics is much faster after applying this (Blender 2.79b runs smoothly even for editing meshes, but blender 2.83 is still too laggy) - Then reboot your device By using the methods I mentioned above, as you can see in my screenshot. I was able to run multiple applications at once without any issue at all (Terminal, HTop, Task Manager, File Manager, VLC, Firefox, Gnome Software, Audacity, Blender 2.79b, LibreCAD, QGIS, GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus, Darktable, RAWTherapee, all apps run perfectly in multi tasking window environment at once). I also want to confirm that ethernet works perfectly, even usb tethering works as well. Lastly, my printer Epson L120 was detected instantly. Wow that's super cool! However, I want to point out some of issues I encountered: 1. No Audio both HDMI and Audio Jack 2. No 3D Acceleration (Panfrost fix just partially fix the graphics acceleration issue) 3. No built-in Wifi (but USB wifi works perfectly) 4. No Infrared (Therefore, you have to un-plug and re-plug the adaptor to the cord after shut down. Whereas in Android, you can simply use infrared remote to turn-on and turn-off) 5. No Bluetooth I hope that this is my complete review for Armbian in X96 Max+ Android Box. I also plan to make the video tutorial and post it on Youtube, so that everybody can benefit from this. As for the issues, I hope somebody could help me to fix this issue. Many thanks, rna
