  1. Some months ago I bought a fake Tanix TX3 mini to use as my personal server, but when trying to install armbian I just realized that the real cpu its not a common s90w, as I would expect, but s905l2. Okay, after many tries and helps one a lot of peoples I discovered the right setup for my devide. Ophub armbian fork with 'Armbian_24.5.0_amlogic_s905w_jammy_6.1.84_server_2024.04.08' image with DTB 'meson-gxl-s905l2-ipbs9505' and u-boot-s905x-s912. That is the set up that I did some months ago, but now I bought a higher capacity sdcard (64gb) to store more files. Ok, the sdcard is working, I flashed this image, made the entire set up, but when I try to boot I always get and error that says: 'Gave up waiting for root file system device. ALERT UUID DOES NOT EXISTS'. Then it goes to initramfs. To check it again I tried to use the same set up for my old sdcard (again) and then it worked wonderfully, so I made the conclusion that the problem should be my sdcard. But I read in some post that higher capacity sdcards doest not work very well with Armbian. Should I buy another sdcard or this is a know problem when talking about armbian?
  2. I still didnt tried to install armbian on eMMC. I know that could be a hard path if it not work, so I'm still using mine TX3 mini from SDCard. I was curious about how make it work properly in eMMC. Still doesnt sounds clear to me what could be wrong, I mean the problem is to use the wrong dtb installed when trying to perform a eMMC install? By the way I dont remember to mention but I'm using a armbian fork from OPHUB. And the step-by-step to eMMC install is different from the one that I found here in official forums. By the way @Khadas, at this point I know that you managed to solve the problem. But I still would like to install armbian in my eMMC and for' non-bricking purposes' I would like to know what you did to went everything ok with your new txbox, is it exactly the same model as the first one? I mean, TX3 with that fake S905W cpu?
  3. I could not find the install_aml.sh in my root directory. Is that script always in this folder or it could be in another?
  4. @Khadas Sorry for didn't read your messages, I was a quite away from this project for some days. By the way, I was able to boot from SDcard just pressing the reset button under my TVBox while I energize it. Then it goes directly to boot from sd (if your u-boot could be read)....if you are trying that and even though you didn't boot and it goes directly to TVBox android its because the u-boot its not being detected as 'boot partition'. (Possibly by incompatibility of u-boot with your TVBox. I have read some instructions, that doesn't seem very clear to me. I'll try my luck. Right now i'm running a backup of my system to perform a eMMC installation. I'll back with results in a couple of days.
  5. How can I backup my eMMC to restore if necessaire? Is there any instructions about it?
  6. @Khadas did you managed to install correctly on EMMC? I'm testing for along these two weeks, everythings looks run fine. I'll try to perform a installation in EMMC also.
  7. Well. I checked multiple times my CPU and its really a S905W in my case. At this point I really dont know if the method that I'm doing is right. Here in armbian forums we have many deprecated tutorials, that versions from 2 or 3 years ago. I could not get this at the point. I also visited amlogic-armbian repository in ophub's github, its more updated but there there's different tutorials, compile kernel, build armbian...there's so many steps, with a hundred of possible workarounds. At the moment I'm basically flashing a .img in a sdcard, copy the name of my dtb (meson-gxl-s905w-tx3-mini) and paste in extlinux.conf and rename one file to u-boot.ext...nothing more than that. In theory it should be ok and all should work as expected. But I really cannot understand why I'm always stuck in boot. Always with the same 'Kernel panic' message. EDIT: After post my reply I tried to use the exactly same DTB as you said. And it worked. I dont know why using a totally different DTB that my CPU should support worked. But now I'm logged in my root user, in armbian, thats awesome. Possibly somethings will not work...but this is another trouble, I'll testing out this weekend and back here to give my feedback. Thanks for your help @Khadas, I was trying for a whole month to make it work. You saved me.
  8. Alright, sorry, I didnt notice the 2 after X. By the way, I dont know why i cant be able to boot normally. I'm always getting this error, and dont know if i'm doing something wrong.
  9. When I flashed the image in my SD it had some files for u-boot, so I have renamed one of these to u-boot.ext. In my case I renamed this one that I mentioned. I dont know if this is right, but I remember to read this in the february tutorial.
  10. Alright, well. My TX3 comes with S905w, I have been testing this following thread. So basically, I have downloaded Armbian_23.11.1_Aml-s9xx-box_bookworm_current_6.1.63_xfce_desktop.img.xz. Flashed into a sdcard with balenaEtcher, then I changed extlinux.conf to match with TX3, uncommenting FDT /dtb/amlogic/meson-gxl-s905w-tx3-mini.dtb. Which is also in DTB folder. Then I renamed 'u-boot-s905x2-s912' file to u-boot.ext. Unmounted from my device and connect the sdcard, applied power while holding reset button pro 10 seconds. Then appears these messages while booting: Error inserting "stdin" variable in TX3-Mini, after this the system made an attempt to boot kernel (I think), after this I got another error message: Kernel Panic - not syncing: Asynchronous SError Interrupt. Following by a message that says CPU: (u-dev-worker) Not tainted 6.1.63-current-meson64.
  11. Update: I'm trying with every s905w images that I could find, I always get an error: Kernel panic or mainline 'bootfromsd not defined' and some PHY messages. Well, at this point I'm about to forfeit. Tried many methods and didn't get at least login in armbian.
  12. Did anyone know how can I see if my TX3 has NAND or EMMC? I not sure if this is right but I'm facing some issues when trying to install armbian in my TX3, I burned and image with balenaEtcher in my sdcard but always says kernel panic or mainline 'bootfromsd is not defined' when booting armbian. It could be because of mem type?
  13. For sure. Here are some pictures of boot when I try to boot "Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_focal_current_5.9.0_desktop". Its shows error while inserting stdin before boot Armbian. After that it shows 'Starting kernel...", and tries to boot Armbian, when the terminal is opened I get this Kernel panic bellow. I was using some images that I found in the original topic and some images that I found in YouTube. All the images that I have used is in the screenshot. NOTE: except by "Armbian_23.11.1_Aml-s9xx-box_jammy_current_6.1.63_xfce_desktop" that doesn't fit in my SDcard. In this screenshot particularly I was using Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_focal_current_5.9.0_desktop with this extlinux.conf: 'FDT /dtb/amlogic/meson-gxl-s905w-tx3-mini.dtb APPEND root=LABEL=ROOTFS rootflags=data=writeback rw console=ttyAML0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend consoleblank=0 fsck.fix=yes fsck.repair=yes net.ifnames=0' But I tried also use other images with other extlinux confs.
  14. I'm sorry, i misspelt, mine cpu is s905w. Idk exactly which version, by the way. Here are some pictures of mb.
  15. Hello, I'm trying to start ARMbian in my new TX3 mini (Amlogic S902w)...but I'm always having trouble in ARMbian boot. It always says Kernel Panic - not syncing: Asynchronous SError Interrupt. Following by a message that says CPU: (u-dev-worker) Not tainted 6.1.63-current-meson64. I tried an old images of ARMbian that I found in YouTube videos, but without success. The error changes the way that the message appears but its always this Kernel Panic in CPU.. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, I'm trying so many DTB's with all these 3 u-boot.ext, but without success. I don't know if I should change the BOOT ARGS in extlinux.conf. There's so many doubts. Does anyone having this issue?
