  1. Yes, the TX6 dtb is probably your best bet. There aren't many others to try anyway. Glad to hear that now you've got the 3GB RAM available, this 1GB extra makes a difference.
  2. Have you tried editing extlinux.conf and including mem=3072M at the APPEND line? My V96 Mini has 3GB RAM working in Linux (5.10.x). I put it there from the very beginning so I do not know if it would recognize the 3GB without it. What dtb are you using?
  3. Beware that there are different hardware versions of this same box. I myself have two X96 Max boxes, with two different hardware versions, both bought just days apart from each other. It has been a few weeks since I had the chance to play with them, but from what I recall, one of them worked OOTB with Armbian 20.10 5.9.0 and the expected dtb (x96max). The other one is instead more similar to the X96 Max+. It came with an 8822CS wifi chip (same as the Max+) instead of the AP6356SA that came on the first one. The "original" version of the X96 Max does work ethernet @ Gbit speed and WiFi OOTB with the 201014 image. The second one I do not recall now if I ended up managing to use either of the (onboard) network interfaces or if I simply plugged a USB wifi dongle at the time. I had but a couple hours at most with them. I plan to play again with them soon, I will let you know more details once I have the chance to check. Bottom line, first of all check what hardware you got inside your box!

USB wifi dongle with Ralink MT7601 chipset working perfectly. Small tweaks to the DT gets the blue LED working as it should.

  9. WiFi on SSV6051 only works on old images with 3.14 kernel. Latest may be around 5.44 from mid 2018.
  10. I am away from my toys at the moment, and the only time I took a look at the install.sh script was about two years ago, so it may have changed substantially since then, but based on your SD card having been wiped my guess would be that your system identified the SD card as the first memory block (name ending with 0), and if I recall right the install script assumed the first block/device would be the internal memory (device to be backed up, erased, and have the OS copied to), and the second device would be the SD card. Concerning updating Android, it was only necessary to do it once. Since your Android installation is still there, you should not have to do this step a second time. If my guess is right, you should be able to boot from your newly flashed SD card. Once in Armbian, take a look at your devices, see whether the internal memory chip or the SD card show as mmcblk0 or something similar, you would then have to make simple adjustments to the install script.
  11. It probably already works for the box you linked, but if I may suggest, this one already works for sure, it costs just a few dollars more (4/16 model), and has twice the amount of RAM. I wouldn't think twice: www.aliexpress.com/item/A5X-Max-4GB-32GB-Smart-Android-7-1-TV-Box-KD-RK3328-Quad-Core-5G-WiFi/32841541783.html

  13. Tanix TX3 mini 2GB RAM (S905W) 5.41.1 Ubuntu Xenial 3.14.29 icewm 20180406: everything working, boot from SD, system on HDD A5X Max 4GB RAM (RK3328) 5.62 Ubuntu Bionic 4.4.143 desktop 20181014: rk3328-evb.dtb, boot from SD, system on HDD, just started testing, wifi and audio not working yet, ethernet okay. 2018-12-19: audio is working. 5.91 Ubuntu Bionic 4.4.154 desktop 20190726: rk3328-mx10-fast.dtb, boot from SD, system on HDD, everything working so far, ethernet, wifi, audio. Playing Test.mp4 on full screen runs very hot, around 93°C, normal computing tasks are very fluid. MX10 4GB RAM (RK3328) 5.74 Ubuntu Bionic 4.4.154 desktop 20190202: rk3328-mx10.dtb, boot from SD, system on HDD. As noted elsewhere, the newer models come with the SSV6051 wireless chipset, everything else working except for wifi. X96Max+ 4GB RAM (S905X3) 20.09 Focal 5.8.7 desktop 20200911: meson-sm1-sei610-ethfix.dtb. Ethernet still at 100Mbps, no wifi, no front display, possibly more things missing. Haven't played with it yet, will try to get them all to work. But Armbian is running solidly. TX9S 2GB RAM (S912) 20.09 Focal 5.8.7 desktop 20200911: meson-gxm-vega-s96.dtb: everything working (Gigabit, wifi, sound, etc). Very nice box, well designed, excellent air flow, desktop works nicely.
  14. Sorry I hadn't seen your question before. I haven't had time to play with my TX3 mini in the past few months, but yes, wifi was working. Maybe it was not as solid as it could/should be, I didn't make any kind of measurements, but it would sometimes "feel" it was somewhat slower than my laptop, for instance, when transferring the same thing to both of them over wifi. My TX3 mini was/is still running 5.41.1 with 3.14.29, I am still waiting for a chance to try the newer images. I had setup wifi using wifi_dummy, my wifi chip is the SSV6051, and my ROM is from March 2018 (from where I believe Armbian was getting the dtb file), if that helps.
  15. A few months ago, in a previous version, you could try something like: sudo ln -s /lib/firmware /usr/lib/firmware It may or may not be what you need now for 4.18, but if you give it a try let us know if it fixes your problem.
