    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)

    They just might have different wlan chip...

    I seem to remember that I had the same problem, both with the Mini M8S and a Mini MXIII (which is virtually identical), I downloaded the 8723as driver module from github, compiled and installed it and got WiFi working but never BT, until I hooked on a cheap usb-bt adapter.

    You'll just have to try different dtb's.

    And is that dtb for exactly your model? Maybe try some other dtb's....

    I did not quite understand, did you copy the wetek dtb to the root directory of the SD card and rename it to dtb.img?

    I think that is 5.37 with kernel 3.14

    I have the same problem, earlier versions worked fine but now I get kicked out as soon as I have logged in.

    Yes, the 912 has its own Armbian thread

    The hardware should be good enough for 4k since they advertice it with Android, I haven't tested it myself, but full HD works fine under linux with the kernels that support HW acceleration.

    Easiest is to back up your /home directory first, also any other directory you have placed stuff in.

    Any particular reason for that? Armbian is much more versatile and useful WITH HW acceleration.... And is it impossible to install to old NAND?

    I see, so there is no way to install on old NAND? I'm trying on a MXQ Pro+ and seems to have more success but boot hangs. I'll investigte further. Another question, is there a way to get accelerated video on 4.18?

    Did not work on my Mini M8S, after running the script it didn't even boot from the SD card anymore

    Yes you could try that, it should boot but wifi would probably not work
