    ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    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

    Doens't say a lot of HW specs there, but have you tried the "p200" dtb? It is usually a safe choise....

    Do you know anything else about this box? What cpu does it have? Do you know what board model it uses?

    Great, I use the Amlogic Burning Tool to flash Android and it works great.

    Try the Armbian 5.55 with kernel 4.18

    I'm using a Beelink mini MX-III, a mini M8S and a MXQPro+, the first two are 905 while the last is 905w. I have tried both xenial, bionic and debian stretch, the debian is the one that seems to work best.
