  1. sorry.. i am not here often and I dont like the ubuntu much but anyway, i have used the toothpick method. 1) download the image 2) burn to usb key ( i have used sd card wuth adapter) 3) put the key into white usb slot 4) there is a button inside AV conector press and hold the button 5) power on device and wait few seconds, x96 logo will appear, keep holding the button, logo blinks once or twice and you will realize that initial animation did not start 6) release the button 7) wait armbian to boot
  2. just check this link: https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905
  3. it is kid of annoying. Short comment on where to look from someone who knows how the resolution in armbian is determined would help so i can fix it myself. :-)
  4. just tested latest armbian image Armbian_5.24_Amlogic-s905x_Debian_jessie_3.14.29_20161223.img.xz on my x96 tv box (s905x) 1) first boot, loging under root and creatig new user account is ok 2) After reboot the screen resolution is strange, i can see two columns of text next to each other. Any idea on how to fix screen resolution change after second boot? Can i change it to mode which is being used in first boot? SSH works well so i can change some configs remotely if that would solve the problem....
  5. @Balbes150 the problem with strange resolution (only half part of the scree utilized, bash lines almost unreadable) appeared on my s905x armbian out of blue, after several re-boots. I am using ssh so it is not a big pain in the a** but would be great if you could give me some hint how to fix this. Thanks
  6. thanks, but it did not work for me. however, i am using older build of armbian and works well. thanks for that :-)
  7. lsblk returns several block devices and mmcblk0 is 16 GB in size which should be internal storage. however fdisk -l mmcblk0 returns 512 block size and no partitions. mount end with error. I mean, i can try but will the ls -al /dev/block do more?
  8. latest armbian after initial reboot into strange resolution. half of the screen utilized only half of each line visible. on ubuntu screen is ok. Any hints? thnaks
  9. thx @vcka I have tried modprobe to discover internal emmc of my s905x tv box. but nothing happend. seems mmcblk0 is the internal memory but no partition discovered. fdisk -l can't see any partitioning on mmcblk0. any other hint to mount internal memory? Thanks
  10. In the armbian_debian the device /dev/data does not exist so i can not mount. While on desktop version device exists. Am i missing driver or configuration? Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
  11. guys, i am getting bit crazy. 1) the latest , armbian_debian works great but can not mount internal filesystem 2) armbian_debian with manually installed xfce can not mount internal filesystem 3) armbian_debian_desktop can mount internal file system but ethernet does not work, which is showstopper for me armbian_debian_desktop has /dev/system and /dev/data which are devices for mounting internal storage but those devices does not exists on armbian_debian without desktop... Any hint how to make the /dev/system and /dev/data appear on armbian withou desktop? Am i missing some drivers?
  12. hi balbes159, your image runs me out of box, without copying the dtb to boot partition. so i understand dtb file is taken from intenal device memory.. How did you get there? My Armbian can not see Android file system. this is my list of block devices for illustration: root@amlogic-s905x:/dev/block# lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 1 7.4G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 1 64M 0 part /boot └─sda2 8:2 1 7.2G 0 part / mmcblk0rpmb 179:96 0 512K 0 disk mmcblk0boot0 179:32 0 4M 0 disk mmcblk0boot1 179:64 0 4M
  13. this image works also for me.. now i have working armbian on x96. thanks
