Installation of Linux on Q-Box S905 HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

This is my first post here.

I have a Q-Box which I bought, I believe, in 2016.

 

Chipset: S905

RAM: 2GB

Storage: 16GB

Software: Android 5.1

 

I would like to install linux on this box, but after following the procedure in this site, the box doesn't boot at all. I wait for way more than the 7-10 minutes in the tutorial, but the screen is always black.

When I remove the external SD-Card it works normally. Phheeewww ! :)

As suggested in the tutorial, I tried several dtb files with no success.

From the videos, I have noticed that there is a reset button, but mine doesn't have one. Any one with the same problem, or a solution for this box?

I am following the tutorial in "ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X (ver 5.44 =<)". Is this the one?

 

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Pedro

No, use the information from the topic about new images (with kernel 5).
