X96 Max+ (Retrostation with Android and MicroSD card with emulators)


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, 


I am french.


I bought a Retrostation on X96 Max+ support 

I used "Armbian_20.02.0-rc1.038_Aml-s9xxx_eoan_current_5.5.0-rc6_desktop_20200205.img" with BalenaEtcher and I changed some files like explained on this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_V50MuJ7DE&ab_channel=AmirsafeTechnology

But when I boot on my support with Linux, I have a strange display, like not normal ^^ I wanted to know if I can do an update maybe for the display or maybe I choose a wrong dtb file ? 


If someone know this problem, please help me ^^


Have a nice day/night ^^

The build you are using is over 2 and a half years old.

Please read: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/17106-installation-instructions-for-tv-boxes-with-amlogic-cpus


(Note that you may need to change the extlinux.conf file to read: "LINUX /uImage" , I am investigating an issue, but I haven't yet confirmed it on an s905x3 box like yours).

@hadestlse It is assumed that you have the knowledge and skills to build linux kernels and apply patches if you are going to attempt to do that.  If not then I wouldn't recommend trying to incorporate the patch @hexdump referenced above.  Not knowing your level of developer knowledge, I would first point you towards the Armbian developer docs. https://docs.armbian.com/Developer-Guide_Build-Preparation/
