Using u-boot-2015
    Enter the desired .dtb filename in /BOOT/uEnv.ini
    Run “/root/”.

Using u-boot-2018 version (New version)
       1) Enter the desired .dtb filename in "/BOOT/extlinux/extlinux.conf

       2) Rename Sxxx-uboot.img" to “uboot.img”  located at media.
            i) if S905x then rename s905x-uboot.img to uboot.img
        ii if S912  then rename s912-uboot.img to uboot.img
    Run “/root/”

if you don't know if you are using ""u-boot-2015" or "u-boot-2018" then please update both the files.  (uEnv.ini and extlinux.conf).

/* Notes
On models with S802 S805 S812. Activation multi-boot is possible ONLY with SD card
(activation of the USB stick is NOT WORKING). After a one-time activation procedure of multi-boot is done using SD Card,
running variety of ystems is possible from ANY storage media (SD cards and USB storage devices).  */

/* Notes
Unzip file using unxz in Linux
unxz --keep Armbian_5.64_Aml-s9xxx_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.19.0-rc7_desktop_20181019.img.xz
