Try starting the system from external media and manually mounting the /dev/data partition. Check it for errors and see how the system formed on it.

I try again Still same error when I lunch debian from the emmc 

I can mount the emmc from the sdcard wo error I lunch the script wo error but when it's time to boot from the emmc It's faill

 

 

I get this error on first boot from the sdcard

Hi folks,

I've got a more rare flavor of m8s+ sold in Russia as Redmond SkyTVbox RSA-100S. It has got very buggy Android firmware. That's why I want to swap it for Linux. The box has root out of the box and can boot from SD and usb. Unfortunately none of the dbt.img files worked for me( I tried many). It boots and goes through resizing the ext4 partition, but after that it hangs and were never able to get HDMI screen working(it's just black and no terminal prompt). If I don't place the dbt file in the root of fat partition it throws some logs to the screen (yes, HDMI) and crashes with kernel panics due to interrupts issue. I took photos of her mb. Please check it out and let me know if you have any ideas for me. Thanks!d0708836e536c904697820e89b4c85b9.jpg7158db9153505b5e27b141155b8e7e36.jpg

We have the same issue but not the same card ! 
Di you tray witjout the dtbFile ?
Thanks for your reply! Yes I tried with out dtb file and received different results. Sometimes it were freezing very early and black screen. Other times would throw kernel panics to the HDMI screen and exit. One time I were lucky to get the login promp, but it crashed after I tried to change password. Couldn't get to it again never after that. I'm suspecting that the power supply is not enough. I were using stock 2 amper power adapter. Planning to try 4a once I get hold of it.

Update image kernel 4.x for s802\s812 20180327

 

https://yadi.sk/d/-3WALlEG3FyTvs

 

Works wired network and USB (you can run the system from a USB flash drive). The display does not work. This image is compiled using Martin Blumenstingl kernel sources. Welcome feedback in the form of logs of system start-up using the UART on different models S812.

 

 

**************************

Update the Volumio image for S802\S812 0.2 20180327.

Audio output works through the standard HDMI output. So far it is implemented with dtb file for "meson8m2_n200_2G_volumio.dtb" . For those who use other dtb files, please write the names of the files (to enable output via the regular HDMI i'm need to make changes to the dtb file).

@balbes150 I'm new to the @mlogic world,  from surfing the web you seem to be the one of the foremost experts of the platform so 1st off thank you for all your hard work you do for the community.  Recently i bought a MBOX MXIII (I'm sure it's some clone) k200C, is there away / somewhere in the kernel i can look to figure out if it is actually an s812 or s802 i know it has the ap6330 WiFi module.  I'd really like to avoid taking the heat sink off which seems to be what most people suggest i'd have to do to know what SoC it has.

You don't need to disassemble the TV box. Try all the dtb files. According to the file with which the TV box will work, it will be clear which model you have.

Hello balbes150

 

I'm trying to use your armbian s812 builds on my device : it's a Wetek Core, with Libreelec installed on nand.

 

From what I understand, I'm in a particular case since my box already supports booting from sdcard, but it doesn't work for your builds (sdcard not seen as bootable by my box).

So, I applied your autoscript to activate universal multiboot.

Now my box detect your builds on sdcard (not on usb), boot on it but is stuck (with screen no signal) with every dtbs I tried.

I think the wetek proprietary multiboot script is in conflict with your.

 

Here is my fw_printenv ...  thank you if you can help me :

Hi @balbes150

 

Thanks for all the hard work you put on this images.

 

I have one question:

Installed "Armbian_5.41_S812_Ubuntu_xenial_3.10.108_mate_20180402.img.xz" on my box.

Everything works fine except running Kodi. I get this output:

 

/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/kodi/kodi-xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate
Segmentation fault

Is it possible to run Kodi with hardware acceleration on these images?

Yes, it is possible if you build the necessary version of KODI yourself.

Ok, I can try that if you help me :)

 

Cloned your xmbc repository and trying to build "AML-Leia".

Running "./kodi_cmake" gives:  "Could NOT find AML (missing: AML_INCLUDE_DIR)"

 

What package/repository do I need to build?

Oh, at least one of the users is not requests to all do for free, decided to help. That's very good. Yes, I will help with the description and steps. First you need to add libMali and amlcodec (you can just copy the working files from Libreelec version to Armbian). Then set all dependencies for the Assembly. Uncomment SRC repositories and execute "apt build-dep kodi" . Alternatively, you can view the KODI build options and build order for The odroid C1 in ArchLinux.

Do I understand correctly that you are using the same SD card to activate the multi-boot on all TV boxes ? On some TV boxes activation takes place this SD card, and one model does not work (error message with a photo) ?

 

Judging by the logs, you have a model n200C . So you need to pick up the dtb from this group. When you start with dtb n200C_1GB system starts but a lot of mistakes from the media. Multiboot you have already activated, so try to use a USB flash drive to capture the image and add dtb n200C_1GB. I have my doubts that your model has real 2GB of RAM, it is desirable to open the case and get the brand of memory chips.

Perhaps the manufacturer specially recorded in the built-in dtb is not correct RAM, the kernel in Armbian itself checks for physical memory access and sets the real value (which it itself received under test).

Hi all,

 

I'm still stuck at this point. I created diferent SD card with debian or ubuntu, but at this point autoscript gives me always the same answer. Do have any idea I can test / do to make it happen?

Hi all,

 

Last night I managed to make it happen.

I searched around but I'm still not able to apply aml_autoscript from update & backup and it always gives me header/footer signature errors.

 

I conencted the board using serial console and defined/update environment variable myself :) (copying from the aml_script).

I had some problems with syntax errors for typos but at the end It worked!!

 

For the next step I will search how to include wifi drivers for ap6330 and blutooth.

 

Cheers ! :P

Hey ,
 

I have tried almost all the dtb files with several versions..but the wired network and wifi refuse to work ..it boots fine.

I have UART, but it doesn't show anything abnormal.

My Chipset is Netxeon M82G V2.1 with Amlogic S812, with network chip AP6330

though this seems to happen in every single build

Thanks in advance :)
