  1. @SteeManI finally got to a shell, I downloaded debian's dtb from here and replaced "meson-gxl-s905w-p281.dtb" with the one from debian and surprisingly it worked
  2. It worked! I was able to boot armbian, but not actually get to a shell, it gets stuck during boot so I'll try different dtbs, so far I did this. for coreelec I had used gxl_p281_1g.dtb, I thought meson-gxl-s905w-p281.dtb would work fine but you never know
  3. Ok looked into using the "Amlogic USB Burning Tool" but here it say mxq didn't really provide any firmware and probably never will, so I might be out of luck, do you happen to know of any distro I could try or am I stuck with coreelec?
  4. Thank you very much for answering. With firmware I assume you mean a ROM for that device? If so, I don't think I can find the exact ROM it uses ; Maybe a ROM for different box with the same cpu could work, but I don't know.
  5. G'day all this is my first post here, the title describes the brand model, apparent ram size and storage capacity of my tv-box, I know the chip has to be an S905* because I can boot coreelec with the dtb of s905W, but in armbian's case no luck yet. The device doesn't have an sd slot, however I was able to boot coreelec by using a usb drive and ADB. basically adb-connected to it and issued "adb reboot update". I have a similar device as this guy I think if not exactly the same: https://forum.atvxperience.com/viewtopic.php?t=6432 So what options do I have? Any help is welcome 😀
