The ARMBIAN in the TV BOX Matricom G-Box (AMLOGIC S802 - 4 core)


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone


I have one Matricom G-Box Android with Lollipop 5.1.1. But, they discontinued an Android for this box. 
So, after a well succeeded Armbian installation in a MXQ PRO with RK3228A, I want to do the same with this box. As I can not find nothing about these steps, except the kernel generation (https://github.com/SLAzurin/armbian-aml-s8xx-kernel-build-steps).

Well, someone could be provide all the steps by-steps for an ARMBIAN installation in this box?
How to generate a SD or USB card? Which kernel .Image or zip file should burn it?
 

For instance, for box with Rockship are well described here in Armbian site, but nothing for Amlogic boards,  specifically this S802 ?

Thanks in advance

Have you read this thread: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/3023-armbian-for-amlogic-s805-and-s802s812

The most recent balbes150 builds for s8xx cpus can be found here: https://users.armbian.com/balbes150

I don't have any s8xx based boxes so I can't provide any more specific instructions, but in looking at the files in the boot directory of the image, the instructions are likely to be similar to the s9xx instructions found in the TV Boxes FAQ (however it looks like these builds still use the uEnv.txt instead of the newer extlinux/extlinux.conf in the s9xx instructions).
