  1. @jock and @fabiobassa You are awesome! I only had time to try the new wifi driver now, and it worked like magic, very smoothly! I tried both 2.4G and 5G and both worked fine, with a nice speed! Thank you very much again!
  2. Thank you, very much, @jock I'll test it and bring the feedback here! Best regards!
  3. Thank you again, everyone. @Ztrawberry, if you don't mind, could send me an e-mail so we can keep in touch and share our findings and ideas about these devices. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to send private messages here. My e-mail is davimesq@gmail.com Best regards,
  4. Wifi Issue Thank you very much, @fabiobassa I just wanted to make sure that I tried everything about this wifi issue. Now I can rest in peace I guess I was a little bit unlucky about the hardware I bought. Also, I wasn't aware about the high varienty amongst these TV Boxes. Next time I'll look here before I buy anything and I'll look for a more suitable and commom box (If someone want to suggest a good option, I would appreaciate too). ----------------------------------------------------------- Multimedia - Youtube Another topic I'd like to bring is about the performance on running youtube videos. I tried to run some videos on youtube, using chromium (I'll try firefox next time) and the performance was really bad, even for low resolution videos. I also realized that the video players were also slow. Then I tried the turorial below and I got great results when I run the following command: "mpv --hwdec=rkmpp -vo=gpu --gpu-api=opengl --gpu-context=drm --opengl-es=yes <video_file>" But the performance on youtube is still bad Is there any way to use gpu when I run youtube videos or any other way to improve the perfomance of this task? Thanks!
  5. Hi everyone, First of all, I would like to thank @jock @fabiobassa and everyone else that have shared their knowledge here. All the information was extremely helpful and clear (the majority of the problems I had was due to lack of attention or experience) I joined this adventure aiming to assemble cheap computers, with some basic resources, for children in poor communities in Brazilian countryside. Since these TV Boxes are very popular here in Brazil, they seemed to be a nice option for me. After I acquired my box and after some research, I came to find the Armbian project and particularly this forum. I managed to install the stable image "Armbian_20.05.6_Rk322x-box_focal_legacy_4.4.194_desktop" in the NAND flash internal memory, but now the wifi does not work. I'm a newbie linux user, maybe my mistake is just silly and probably I'll share too much information now, but It's just me trying to be as clear as possible. Board Specifications -> The TV Box I bought is named "MX9 5G 4K". His manual has about zero information, but using net, this forum and opening the box, I found some information -> RAM: DDR3 1 GB ; ROM: Onboard Flash 8 GB (I guess) ; 4 USB Ports -> Using the hexdump command (thanks for this tip), I found out that it is a RK3228 board (despite it's written 3229 in the board). But I'm still not sure if it is a RK3228a or RK3228b -> When I opened the box, I found out that the wifi chip it's an SV6256P (and this is probably the source of my problems) Symptoms 1) In the desktop, when I click in the wifi icon, I get this (device not ready): 2) When I try to connect using the "nmtui" command in the terminal (according to armbian documentation), I get this: 3) When I run "armbian-config" and go to Network submodule, I can't find wireless option 4) Finally, when I run "dmseg | grep wlan", I get this Actions I already tried 1) I already tried apt-get update / upgrade 2) I remove blacklist file (despite sv6051 was already commented) 3) In rk322x-config, I tried all set of combinations (3228a, b and two leds settings) Questions and final comments I read the previous messsages here and I realized that @nokirunner also has an SV6251 wifi device and he is also struggling with this. And apparently there is no drive support for this device (that's what I understood). But I read that sometimes the 6051 drive works for this chip, so I just want to make sure that I'm trying this correctly. I also read that @fabiobassa mentioned the original firmware (rk3229_8.1_MX1VR_SSV6256_zhongx_20180925_v002_Spectek.zip) and I'm not sure if I'm using it and I don't know where to find it. That's all Thank you in advance!
