Armbian for Amlogic S9xxx kernel 4.1x (>= ver 5.55)

Recommended Posts

Goodmornig,

anyone know which could be the correct (or working) dtb image for beeling gt1? I've only 1 dtb partially working, boot but  it doesn't recognize the usb ports and I can't use the keyboard to do the installation.

thanks

Davide

My gt1 ultimate is currently working as my home server. If I remember well, I'm using default dtb (vim2) on an armbian 5.70 image with kernel 4.19. I can't check know, but I can look at the end of the week.

Good news. :)

Build the first version of Armbian for TV box x96 max (S905X2).

While not working, sound via HDMI, WiFi. Test images on the site in the catalog S905X2.

  Hello I received my new x96 Max tv box yesterday

It runs android 9

When I update with am...zip for enable bootting from sdcard( correct?) the update process after reboot says "error verifying...." "footer error...."

The file arm****.zip is in the sdcard and the update procesa can read (update from EXT in the menu can retry with same error)

What I'm doing wrong?

 

more info: the x96 Max that I have is a 4G Memory /32G disk model.... it has a u311 (¿board model?) instead of u211 i read about in other threads (or in this thread)

 

Thanks in avance

Ricardo 

Pd:I tryed with a lot of versions of armbian until 5.91 with same result

Can you post the console output from trying to load the module?

Hard to say with only that message. Do you have the correct kernel headers installed? It may be that your kernel does not support that kind of driver, but I'm not that familiar with drivers to say for sure.

Hi,

 

I have a question and a bug.

 

Bug:

 

My box freezes from time to time (inresponsive in shell and ssh) and I have to pull the cord and plug it back in. Looking at the kern.log seems to be related to the network card

 

Logs:

Version: 5.91 from July 15th

Box: H96PRO +

 

Question: How can I upgrade between images versions without having to reinstall all the software that I have installed?

Hi all,

first of all I would like to thank anyone is contributing, I had an in depth look on this thread and I was able to bring to life my mecool KM9 device.

 

Hereunder a short summary that will save some headache for mates ;)

 

  1. My box came with Android 9 and there were no possibilities to enable multi-boot, in order to start playing with it I decided to roll back Android to 8.1; after this step I was just able to boot from external devices, even if it looks that I can't access the box while running on android, probably due to miss behaving BT interface (hanged on remote pairing)
  2. Flashed the image from Balbe150 repo (Linux aml 5.2.1-aml-g12 #5.91 SMP PREEMPT Fri Aug 2 15:24:33 MSK 2019 aarch64 GNU/Linux). Using the dtb file meson-g12a-sei510.dtb I was able to start working on my KM9 having a working ethernet interface.

Currently I'm looking on how to enable BT and WiFi interface, that looks based on AP6255 IC.

Is there someone that is working on this topic too ?

@balbes150

 

Thanks for all your work, the images you provide dont have headers (or yes?)

 

I see in the forum some people cant enable wifi or bluetooth in his box, a posible solution is compile our own drivers, but without headers its not posible.

 

If I build my self ubuntu, What is more simple?

1.- compile ubuntu-armbian with headers

2.- compile only armbian drivers

3.- compile ubuntu-armbian with drivers I need

 

I need the drivers for WiFi USB dongle (Tp-Link), I have the sources but cant compile without headers.

 

Thanks a lot for your advices
