I boot device,  I bought a new sdcard and took this dtb file.

dtb.img

Hello i own an old mxii 2gb tv box (i think is k200) and i was looking for ages to find a working dtb.img. I tried all of them from many armbian images and nothing worked. But this worked like a charm. How do you find it? From which one armbian image? The only problem i have now is that all armbian i tried does not recognise wifi neither internal nor usb external

ver 5.67 20181118

Hello i used the ver 5.67 with the same dtb.img that is working with all previous version but it does not boot. The screen flashes like usual but the TVbox android logo becomes huge and stuck there. I cannot provide any log because i do not have any uart hardhare.

In new versions, the algorithm for specifying the required DTB has changed.

 

Now, all the images for the s9xxx and s8xx will use a unified mechanism for specifying a DTB. You need to change the first line in the file " uEnv.ini", specifying the name of the dtb file. If you need to use your file (which is not part of the image), you need to copy it to the media and edit the "uEnv.ini", specifying the full path and file name where you copied it.

Pay attention.

Now all test images with the 4.1 x kernel will be placed in the same directory where the images with the current version are located, subdirectory (5.67/image_date/NEXT_4.(xx). For example, these images are now in 5/57/20181118/NEXT_4.20)

Use quality media. Most of these problems are usually associated with poor media. Use USB media, they are slower but much more stable.

Thanks i will. The problem is that i tried older builds again with the same micro sd and they boot fine. Maybe its time to use my sandisk usd. Thanks for the reply

Nope. USB media does not work on my s802 mxiii tv box. I am using the updating Aml_autoscript trick on tv box update menu. After that it reboots and after logo screen load the recovery menu and then it shows the known signature verification erro and installation aborting messages. I believe only sd cards work for me. I have to stay in the previous versions i guess

Activation multi-boot (run the script aml_autoscript from SD card) is done only once. After that, you no longer need to use aml_autoscript until a new universal multi-boot option is available. This means you need to burn the last image to the SD card, activate the multi-boot from the SD card once. After that, write the images to the USB drive and start the system from USB. You no longer need to run the aml_autoscript script to USB.

I managed to boot the new version on a usb drive but like the previous versions onboard or external wifi does not exist. Is there any guide of how to download and install the correct drivers offline? Thanks

 Good Job Thanks Balbes :thumbup:

 I test the 5.67 images so, on Debian the Web Browsers didn't work and the videos plays very well, on ubuntu the Web Browsers works but the videos are like accelerate.

 I dont know if someone has the same trouble or it's my SD card or bad images
