  1. SteeMan, Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to me. I really appreciate your support and will start from the beginning and have another crack at it. I will let you know how I get on. Many thanks.
  2. Thank You "TRS-80", I appreciate your response.
  3. Cheers Mr. Finch, for your response. Have you got one of these crappy ATV box that just does not want to install any variant of Linux. I have tried the following img but none work; Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.037_Aml-s9xxx_bionic_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.038_Aml-s9xxx_eoan_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.038_Aml-s9xxx_bullseye_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img altlinux_mate_20190902.img Armbian_20.09_Arm-64_focal_current_5.8.7_desktop.img Armbian_20.12_Rk3328-tv_bullseye_current_5.10.0-rc5_desktop.img It is a real shame, I cannot get this bogus poxy box to work with Armbian!
  4. Hi all, Can I conclude that no one is able to help me?
  5. I would be immensely if anyone bright enough to help me. I have an android TV box running Android 7.1 on a S912B Mygica 1960. I have tried for days a while back to get this device to boot up with Ubunta and have given up. I opened a case about this some time ago, and have actually given up and now I am tackling it again. The issue, I have let it be via the android os - updates (which does not detect any files) or using the toothpick reset method which gives me the option to select aml_autoscript.zip. Running this results in the following error 21 (see below); — No package file selected. -- Install /sdcard/aml_autoscript.zip Finding update package... Opening update package... Verifying update package... E: footer is wrong Update package verification took 0.2 s (result 1). E: Signature verification failed E: error: 21 Installation aborted. Could someone please send the correct image I need to run and also instruction on how to run it. I am by no means an expert but I am so keen to get rid of Android on this device and install Linux. Many thanks up front for your cooperation.
  6. Hi Jeanrhum, Thank you so much for your support. I have followed your instructions and found that it still did not work (I have attached a link of a video showing the error message I get). I then attempted again using your code for both ext files and still no joy. I tried so many different dtb files and eventually gave up on this. I did attempt to update the software via the pin at power (Shown on the video) as the update via the android setup screen does not show any files to update the system with, Also, fyi I did rename the u-boot file (i.e. u-boot-s905x-s912 renamed to u-boot.ext). Also, Just want add I have tried various SD card (all Sandisk - ranging from 8 to 128 GB) also MyGica 1960 allows to update via USB and the video shows my attempt which sadly fails. I would have replied sooner, but this forum has restrictions on how many replies I can make daily. Do forgive me the video recording is a bit poor. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers F.
  7. Thanks Tido, Seriously, I wish I was kidding. I have already followed the steps prior to your message. and I get the same error regardless of the dtb file I use. I have renamed and tried both u-boot-s905x-s912 and the s922 --> renamed to u-boot.ext See the screen capture below. Note I have even tried copying the files and renaming it to dtb.img and I get the same crappy error message. The 1st screen capture shows the use of the "meson-gxl-s905x-p212.dtb" which btw like all makes no difference.
  8. Hey Tido, Thank you for responding, I would have replied but this forum only allowed me to respond once a day (maybe because I am new to this forum)... Anyhow, I tried to follow the link you have provided but got lost. All I want to do is get my SD Card with the Linux running the right dtb file and knowing what files to modify. I have attached pictures of the board in hope someone kind enough to help me (@balbes150 - Seeing as you are the Author to this forum, I am hoping maybe you might be able to direct me to a user friendly easy to follow, step-by-step guide (link) - This would be much appreciated). Many thanks F
  9. Hi, Could someone please help, I am trying to install Ubuntu on Mygica 1960 AML S912B currently running android 7.12. I have watched so many YouTube videos and read articles on getting Linux installed on an android TV box and sadly I have not been successful. I have tried all the following images; Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.038_Aml-s9xxx_bullseye_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.038_Aml-s9xxx_eoan_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.037_Aml-s9xxx_buster_current_5.5.0-rc6_20200205.img Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.037_Aml-s9xxx_bionic_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img altlinux_mate_20190902.img I have gone through so many files in the dtb directory. I have copied them and renamed to dtb.img. I get my TVBox to start firmware update via soft reset with a pin and I run dtb.img. Every time I have done this I get the following; --Install /sdcard/dtb.img Finding update package... Opening update package... verifying update package... E:footer is wrong update package verification took 0.2 s (result 1). E:Signature verification failed E:error: 21 Installation aborted. Is there any hope for me to get this box running Ubuntu? Could someone please help? Many thanks F.
