  1. Hi DDA, This is a workable solution, thanks for suggesting it. The problem is that I didn't find yet a solution for acceptable/watchable playback of flash, Sopcast or Acestream video. (see my comment on this topic here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/2419-armbian-for-amlogic-s905-and-s905x/?page=48&tab=comments#comment-51509 ) Therefore I'll stick to Android until I find that solution. Thank you, regards.
  2. Hello all, I have successfully installed and run different images with 3.14 kernel on my MXQ Pro+ 4K (S905X Mali-450 2GB/16GB) box. It all looks very nice but I am having a few but important video issues: 1. when trying to watch flash videos -like Youtube- on browsers (Chromium, Firefox), in fullscreen mode the image is stuttering and pretty unwatchable (on sports events, for example, where action should run smoothly). The small default window runs fine, only fullscreen is problematic. 2. Kodi 17 is rendering smooth image but it is always in fullscreen mode and cannot be modified to windowed mode. Therefore I cannot copy Ace stream or Sopcast links in order to paste and play them on Kodi's Plexus addon. I am new to Armbian/Linux and I don't know whether these video issues are solvable. Am I missing something? Can anyone help, please? Thank you.
  3. Yay, I have just installed nodm via armbian-config and it takes "root" user straight to the desktop. Nice! Thank you for pointing me to the right direction! (I first tried the Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20171226.img.xz and it was behaving the same, so I reverted to Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20180203 image) So now it's working as it expected (without wifi though, only ethernet). I only need some tool to backup the Android 7.1.2 (TWRP didn't work) and then install to eMMC. Do you know any method for a full backup of Android on this box? (I've tried the method described here: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/2419-armbian-for-amlogic-s905-and-s905x/ but I get some error regarding the backup location-I still didn't figure out how to select SD card for backup)
  4. Thanks for pointing me to sudo armbian-config. I have discovered it yesterday and I will surely give it a go. Regarding the lightdm: I have uninstalled it and the screen blinking/flickering is now gone. Thanks for that suggestion. But I still cannot make the system go straight to the desktop, even if I have installed nodm as per your suggestion. Apparently the image I am using (Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20180203) doesn't allow auto-login. Hopefully I will find a solution soon. Meanwhile I will try the image that you mention here and see if it's better. If so, I will flash it to the eMMC. Thank you again.
  5. Hi manuti, thanks for the fast response. Can you tell me which image of linux you flashed on the MXQ Pro Plus 4K, please? Is it Armbian or something else? Also, can you point me to the instructions for flashing into the eMMC, please? Again, thank you very much for your help.
  6. Hello, First, thanks everybody here for making this possible. Second, I am a newbie on booting Linux on TV box, so bear with me. Thanks. My problem: I have a MXQ Pro+ 4k (2GB RAM - 16GB storage - Android 7.1.2 - 64bit) box and have tried most of the recent images for x905s based TV boxes, following the instructions on the first page of this topic. I have a semi-workable result using Armbian_5.37_S9xxx_Ubuntu_xenial_3.14.29_mate_20180203, but still it is not really usable. I wrote this image to USB 3.0 stick and booted after updating via local update on Android. After setting user I can only access desktop after typing ctrl+alt+f1 -> login -> startx. The system doesn't login automatically and I get a lot of screen flickering with messages regarding lightdm and light desktop manager. What am I doing wrong? How do I get to desktop automatically? Can anyone help, please? (please ask if I didn't specify all the necessary details) Thanks.
