    It's incorrect question. You can't convert DT. You must rewrite it, read what is it, and how hw describe in device tree.

    Version 5.67 20181117.
    Added support for ISCSI and deb packages kernel, header etc.
     
    The version of the image with Xenial - will be assembled only on request.
     
    p.s. When checking, it turned out that WiFi works on Khadas VIM2 Basic (with AP6356S chip). Khadas VIM1 (s905x) works WiFi and BT.

    try icewm or, simple use openbox, and if you need panel some tiny panel... For me all old image(3.14) with openbox, removed pulseaudio and mali(less thant 100mb ram usage after start) - stable and have greate perfomance in all "desktop" scenarios. In you case, with 1gb i strongly recomend use armhf browser instead of arm64 if you need havy browser like chromium or firefox. And very important - disable all kind of hw acceleration in browser setting...

    For those who want to work on HW support on their own, there are two components on the site.

    1. Module "mali.ko"
    2. Archive with libMali.
    The working version of xf86-video-armsoc is missing. I have a package (for Xenial) that gathered Numbqq (dev with Khadas), but the system does not accelerate and it needs to be corrected.

    It's bad idea use swap on microsd, bad for sd card) youtube now work with standart armbian image, it use psd and store cache and profile in tmpfs... If you disable in chromium settings all kind hw acceleration it can smoooth play 720p in youtube with software decoding...

    All image with kernel 3.14 work with generic gxbb_p200.dtb(old u-boot). Don't have now this box, so don't have opportunity check mainline.  It have some exotic wi-fi module without open sources drivers, so no wi-fi.

    All image with kernel 3.14 and mainline. With stock firmware don't need manipulate with .dtb files(3.14 kernel), for mainline need generic p212 dtb. Wi-fi  sci9082c, didn't test.

    On mainline - compile kernel, v4l2 m2m etc. with custom patches or wait when it merge to stable. For 3.14 use kodi. For 3.14(and software decoding in mainline) and x11 - partial solution --vo=x11 and --sws-scaler=fast-bilinear or equal if you don't use mpv.  It cause high cpu usage but give you playable 720p and some 1080p video.  Most problem with mpv - it use by default vo=opengl, it cause huge framedrop(yep, soft mesa) so if you want soft decoding use special flags or vo=x11

    The new version 5.55 of images. In this version, images with a single DE (XFCE) and a server in composition are as close as possible to the official versions. Version with a Mate and Icewm will probably be later and the gathering will be from another branch GIT (specially adapted for this DE). Since now all the images will be collected using the main kernel "4.1 x", have a common structure for the entire line of s9xxx and differ significantly in steps when configuring the system, I open a separate topic for this direction.
     
    The primary steps to capture an image, activate multi-boot, and select a dtb file are common with the previous images.
     
     
    Please note that starting with the version number version 20180928.
    Major change. A new algorithm for the use of the dtb. Starting with this version, you no longer need to copy the dtb files and rename it to "dtb.img." In order to specify which dtb file to use, you need to edit the file 'uEnv.ini" (specify the desired file name for use dtb). This is a plain text file and can be easily edited. This change will make it easy to update the kernel from the "deb" file in the future. The new algorithm is now used in the eMMC system installation script.
     
    Be sure to activate multi-boot using the new image. If multiboot previously activated is required to repeat activation using files in a new image.
     
    Pay attention. To use the system with
    u-boot-2015 (regular firmware Android), you need to edit the file "uEnv.ini"
     
    When using
    u-boot-2018, you need to edit the file "/extlinux/extlinux.conf"
     
     
    For those who doubt or do not know what u-boot is used, you can specify the desired name in both files at the same time.
     
     
    To change the used MAC address.
     
    1 options
    You can add the required parameter to the startup files (uEnv.ini and extlinux.conf). To do this, at the end of the line with the launch parameters, you need to add a parameter specifying the desired MAC address.
    For example,
    mac=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx 
    or
    ethaddr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

    Yes.

    By the way, interesting news, I managed to run the version of Manjaro on TV Box Amlogic, everything starts and works. But while it has to be done in semi-manual mode (i'm need to rebuild the new image with full support for TV boxes). I hope soon there will be another version of the Linux distribution (Manjaro) for the platform Amlogic.
