  1. please read previous posts or google before enquiring
  2. if it's the s905w version use dtb: meson-gxl-s905w-tx3-mini.dtb with a kernel 5.5
  3. please read the product Q&A or google it before posting here: Question: Does anyone know if this works with ubuntu 14.04? Answer: No! The "real" TP-WN725N will, but these (thought advertised as a WN725N) are "NOT" the WN725N, but are made by Archer, and they don't work with LINUX, Ubuntu or LINUX Mint. If you get a real TP-WN725N and plug it in, it will work right out of the box!!
  4. i've got 5 wifi dongles and all work, the latest is a ac600 "free driver" working with the rtl8821CU driver , Bus 003 Device 008: ID 0bda:c811 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 802.11ac NIC others: Bus 003 Device 005: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter Bus 003 Device 006: ID 2001:3319 D-Link Corp. Wireless N Nano USB Adapter better to install realtek drivers sudo apt search realtek
  5. not really worth it spending much time with this as it can be solved with a cheap wifi dongle & bt, also solved sound issues with dlna, broadcom is the original dtb posting, (don't ask me why)
  6. i've done many successful installations by now, but if it bricks, to recover you will need 1. x96max+ android 9 firmware, i downloaded from http://geekbuying.mediafire.com/file/n6pu4qiqalf56d1/aml_upgrade_package.img/file 2. male-2-male type A usb cable 3. win10 apps. and instrutions provided by wechipbox.com hope this helps
  7. using bash integrated arithmetics: ANDROID_SIZE=1500 # size in MB of android image file BOOT_SIZE=$(($ANDROID_SIZE+512)); BOOT_SIZE1=$(($BOOT_SIZE+1)) parted -s "${DEV_EMMC}" mkpart primary fat32 "$ANDROID_SIZE"M "$BOOT_SIZE"M parted -s "${DEV_EMMC}" mkpart primary ext4 "$BOOT_SIZE1"M 100%
  8. i've tested this on a x96max+2
  9. in a more general form: ANDROID_SIZE=1500 # size in MB of android image file BOOT_SIZE=`echo $ANDROID_SIZE+512|bc` BOOT_SIZE1=`echo $BOOT_SIZE+1|bc` parted -s "${DEV_EMMC}" mkpart primary fat32 "$ANDROID_SIZE"M "$BOOT_SIZE"M parted -s "${DEV_EMMC}" mkpart primary ext4 "$BOOT_SIZE1"M 100%
  10. just added the complete patched script, enjoy!
  11. just extend android gap to 1.5G in partition section of script, ---- parted -s "${DEV_EMMC}" mkpart primary fat32 1700M 2212M # 1.7G here but only 1.5G required parted -s "${DEV_EMMC}" mkpart primary ext4 2213M 100% ---- complete patched script install-aml.sh
  12. hmmm, meson-g12a-x96-max.dtb works on mine maybe different hw versions on this deivce?
  13. on my x96max+2 i have to extend the android gap in the install-aml.sh partition section to match the 1.5G android size.
