X88 King S922X TV Box for Armbian

Recommended Posts

For the same price, I prefer to buy an ugoos am6 pro (what I have done). The sdcard with coreelec is not so interesting compared to what you can get for balbes150 excellent work.

If you do not care about the security of all your personal data (credit cards, accounts, etc.) in the entire home network, then this is your choice.

I do not impose anything on anyone, you decide what to use and what to risk.

.. .. and you get many years of support from the manufacturer + guaranteed support for Armbian and LE in full.  :)

I agree, the support from ugoos is excellent (armbian also ;))! I fear that my ut3s won't never receive android 7, even if there is a beta since more than a year. However, I have an s912 box with the am3 firmware and I got an update a few month ago.

What's the processor ?

It's rk3288, but I didn't really need this update, since I use another box on my TV. It was just to illustrate the fact that ugoos maintain their product for a long time and that is what decided me in buying am6 pro instead of another brand.

Anyone have experience running this on their boxes before?

Phone yes, box no. I have a Mecool BB2 (no pro). Nice box, runs Coreelec well. Over on the Kodi forum someone posted being able to get lossless bitstreaming (DTS-HD, etc) working on the 2019 Fire TV Cube which has the S922z chipset. 

 

I assume that x88 firmware is the same exact one posted on the Russian forum. Do we know where it comes from?

 

As you can tell I am looking for a new toy to play with, I'd like to fool around with Armbian and Coreelec/libreelec a bit. Still tempted to pick up a Nvidia Jetson Nano but it doesn't run Kodi well.

No clue. Looks like a repackage by the androidpctv guys.

 

I still have not figured out how to get usb to work. Even tried the g21a dtbs, same deal - boots to desktop with no usb or ethernet. Wish I had the skill to fashion a device tree file for it.

Color correction has nothing to do with your problem.

Yes i did not expect it to.  I was hoping something in the new build would magically bring the usb to life :)

If you can magically turn your X88 into a Ugoos AM6, then your problems are automatically solved. :)
