    Wifi is also working, but this can change from tablet to tablet.

    I had to disable the pwm_bl module, otherwise the screen will go black while boot.
    echo blacklist pwm_bl>/etc/modprobe.d/pwm.conf I checked it with some Allwinner A33 Tablets from eBay or Amazon, the touch isn't working at the moment, but I hope I have time to check it in the future.

    Hi, I also created a Image with the current armbian git builder and it's working, eth0 is working, wlan is not important at the moment.
     
    Great work, thank you.

    Hello Jefken3,
     
    you have to open the Box and search for the Nand or EMMC Flash, then figure out which pins you have to shorten to recover over USB OTG, the Mini M8S has also only full size USB, one of them has OTG.

    Hi,

    here is a short howto to boot Armbian on Mini M8S from SD Card.

    You have to change the u-boot environment to check the SD-Card and then start a autoscript script.

    To boot the Armbian image you have to change some files from Armbian, change all mmcblk0 to mmcblk1 in file /etc/fstab /etc/init.d/firstrun /etc/init.d/resize2fs

    You need the file boot-s905.txt and have to convert it to autoscript, the Mini M8S u-boot can't work with Armbians u-boot boot.ini.
    setenv cec "cecf" setenv mesontimer "0" setenv nographics "0" setenv condev "console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty0 consoleblank=0" setenv verbosity "255" setenv bootargs "root=/dev/mmcblk1p2 rootwait rootflags=data=writeback rw ${condev} no_console_suspend hdmimode=${hdmimode} m_bpp=${display_bpp} fsck.repair=yes loglevel=${verbosity} net.ifnames=0" setenv initrd_loadaddr "0x13000000" fatload mmc 0:1 ${initrd_loadaddr} uInitrd fatload mmc 0:1 ${loadaddr} zImage fatload mmc 0:1 ${dtb_mem_addr} dtb/meson8_Mini-M8S.dtb fdt addr ${dtb_mem_addr} if test "${mesontimer}" = "1"; then fdt rm /timer; fi if test "${nographics}" = "1"; then fdt rm /reserved-memory; fdt rm /aocec; fi booti ${loadaddr} ${initrd_loadaddr} ${dtb_mem_addr} Convert it with u-boot tools to autoscript.
    mkimage -A arm -O linux -T script -C none -d boot-s905.txt s905_autoscript Copy it to SD-Card to the boot partition, and also copy the file "meson8_Mini-M8S.dtb" the Boot partition in folder "dtb".

    Now open the case and connect the UART connector.
    Read this Howto for more informations.

    setenv preboot "run factory_reset_poweroff_protect;run upgrade_check;run bootmode_check;run init_display;run storeargs;run upgrade_key;run user_start;run switch_bootmode;" setenv user_start "if mmcinfo; then run linux_start_mmc;fi;" setenv linux_start_mmc "if fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} s905_autoscript; then echo ===[LINUX START from mmc]===;autoscr ${loadaddr};fi;" saveenv After reboot the Mini M8S should boot from SD-Card.
     
    Please check the lines and be careful, an error can brake the possibility to interrupt the boot sequence.
     
    UPDATE 2016/09/08:
    after apt-get distupgrade, the uboot package was updated and this was rewriting the uboot data from emmc, but the Mini m8s is not working with the uboot from Hardkernels Ordroid uboot.
    I got this after boot:
    ***** Warning!! ************************************************** ***
    * This board have not been autorized or product keys are not valid. *
    * Please contact with Hardkernel or your distributor *
    ************************************************** *******************
     
    After shorten the emmc at boottime, I was able to recover the stockimage via OTG USB and amlogic's windows tool, thanks to balbes150, I found a info on freaktab.
     
    So after first armbian boot from SD, you have to remove the uboot package with "apt-get remove linux-u-boot-odroidc2".

    Hi,
     
    with the how-to from http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/12/06/how-to-run-headless-linux-on-amlogic-s905-devices-such-as-mini-mx-or-k1-plus/#it was possible to boot the Odroid C2 Image on a Mini M8S ( s905 2GB Ram).
     
    The Mini M8S stock u-boot does not support CFGLOAD, so I had to change some parameter from the boot.ini to bring them to the ENV.
     
    The Boot Priority is different from the Odroid C2, it will only check the EMMC, does someone knows if this is more a hardware or software configuration?
     
     
    If someone has interest I will post a small how-to.
     
    Thank you for your hard work for this open system.

    In C2 use your Odroid u-boot, which added to the boot.ini as a startup script. You can use another option that uses standard features of u-boot. The script for the command autoscr. Not a lot of details can be seen here.

    I have a working version of Armbian 5.10:

    Working
    Ethernet USB ports (2) HDMI w/ sound Not working:
    WiFi is missing No sound via S/PDIF Basically, I overwrite /boot/bin/beelinkx2.bin with the one from the blog post. I also manually link it to /boot/script.bin as /etc/init.d/firstrun is failing to detect that it is a Beelink X2 (/run/machine.id returns that it is a 'Orange Pi PC').
     
    I think from this, somebody with a Beelink X2 should be able to figure out how to make Armbian work out of the box. I will look at this again next week if somebody hasn't already beat me to the punch.
     
    This script should reproduce the image:

    Hi all,
     
    I extracted the script.bin File from BeelinkX2 internal flash, but Armbian will not boot directly with it, so I had to change the u-boot config, I created some Patch files for u-boot and a conf file for the board, so the BeelinkX2 mostly boot directly, but not not at every start and a reboot will not work at the moment.
     
    I will add the files I changed.
