  1. Apparently the reference to my github account to help out some other users on this forum is not allowed and gets removed. Sorry.
  2. Hi @Robert Chase, You could try my image, it has a DTB for the Beelink GT-King, should also work for GT-king pro. Image is a modified Armbian 22.05 minimal with kernel 5.15.50 with modified boot scripts to boot with vendor u-boot and patched kernel I use in my own Debian/Ubuntu images for Amlogic boxes. (maybe a good replacement for the old Balbes150 images?) Good luck.
  3. Maybe these helps as a start: https://gitlab.com/baylibre/amlogic/atv/u-boot/-/wikis/home https://u-boot.readthedocs.io/en/latest/board/amlogic/sei610.html But it looks like the u-boot.ext Balbes uses is one without de binaries from Amlogic, since he is chaining his bootloader after the boards own u-boot, so memory initialization and soc initialization is already done.
  4. In the meantime the Armbian forums have a separate (very lifely, I might add) 'TV Boxes' part. I can't blame people for thinking that it is part of Armbian. Which it is not. It's not fair to have a TV Boxes section and a special build for them (Oleg's build) and than ranting on all those cheap Chinese TV boxes. Close the whole thing before the good name of Armbian is damaged. In my opinion it is not bad to use open source projects without contributing; I'm a developer myself. But I'm not an expert in all fields. So I contribute to some open source projects (the one I use for work or the ones I am an expert in) and happily use others. I think that is also the idea of open source. Can't do it asall yourself. So I don't see the harm in using open source projects without always contributing. I choose OSS projects I use with some criteria, like user base and age/maturity. So I did choose Armbian to tinker with some of these cheap boxes. Just for hobby, not expecting anything from anyone, not even expecting the box to survive longer than a year, I am aware they are probably poorly build. Just to get my interest in Arm hardware from some stm32f40x to something bigger. As I understand now, the TV Boxes part is not really Armbian... If I knew before this project (Balbes (Oleg) images) would not have met my OSS criteria. Are the TV Boxes based on Allwinner or Rockchip not cheap Chinese 'garbage'? Only the Amlogic ones? Which boxes do fullfill the criteria of 'TV Boxes' and not being cheap garbage? But, at the same time, I feel with you, and I understand your frustrations, all those Muggle's, who do not understand the nature of open source, verbally abusing you, asking stupid questions over and over again, _demanding_ things... It is unbelievable.... But not all of your users are like that. Please don't forget that. Thanks for the work.
