  1. Firstly there are so many forums and topics on this subject it is very hard to find the information needed and it would be good if some form of up to date guide existed (if one does exist please link me to it) So i have this box: https://forum.freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-support/amlogic-based-tv-players/s805/others-ab/518407-mxpro-amlogic-s805-quad-core-cortex-a5-openelec-capable i cant really give a massive amount of information on it as there simply isn't any it seems to be a clone of a clone of a clone etc etc I'm really hoping to get linux running on it i have a original copy of my firmware that i can flash with USB burning tool if anything goes wrong and I've been trying a bunch of different versions from multiple forum topics however this seems to be the most up to date thread with a post being from yesterday I just tried flashing: https://yadi.sk/d/_rQgn_FosYuW0g/20.08/20200816/Armbian_20.08_Arm-64_focal_current_5.7.15_desktop.img.xz onto my sdcard but there wasn't any uEnv.txt file for me to edit In the past the closest i have gotten to getting the board working was using this image: https://yadi.sk/d/DnCkh3KBvAFES/Linux/Armbian/5.67/20181207/Armbian_5.67_Aml-s805_Ubuntu_bionic_default_3.10.108_desktop_20181207.img.xz however WiFi and Ethernet both didn't work and i didn't have the ability to test whether sound or anything else was working i used this https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bZhvNVOLdu-D6hcOE2hUEOnoDEOSKisS/view?usp=sharing dtb file (because I'm stupid i never noted down which one of the dtb files it was) TL;DR i'm basically just stuck getting linux to run on this box and I'm hoping someone can help me as I've been trying for a while now
