Evolveo H8 Box (S912)

Recommended Posts


I have problem to enable multiboot on TV BOX  Evolveo H8 ( https://www.evolveo.com/en/android-box-h8 ) Amlogic S912 3gb Ram 16gb rom 1gbit WiFI LTM8830

CoreElec starts from SD card without any problems.

Box don't have Backup&Update app (only OTA update) so I try to use dedicated reset button and adb reboot update but always finished with recovery menu and massage " Support Api.3 Recovery is listening adb sideload... Waiting adb sideload command.. E: cannot load volume /misc!"

I tried differnt sd cards (32gb/64gb) and dtb files without any success with balbes armbian compilation.

Mayby someone has idea what I doing wrong ?

From the instructions:

"The start system in Coreelec is not compatible with LibreELECE  Armbian  etc. If you run coreelec on your TV box, you will no longer be able to run LE and Armbian normally until the full recovery of the standard firmware via the USB Burn Tool and the new activation of the universal multi-boot, which is used in all new systems."

As I understood when I boot Coreelec first time i overwrite orginal boot and now Armbian can't start 

Is there any workaround to enable proper multiboot if there is no stock firmware image avaible for this particular TV BOX  ?
