@Batmah moved to TV boxes.  Actually looks somewhat interesting with the batteries, you can get far better capacities than pictured, too, I have 18650's at 2800 mAh.  More or less you need to find out what's inside, then figure out if a device tree exists for it.

I tried to boot the Armbian from the mSD card and ide-usb hard disk .
 attached log from the terminal 

1. Why did you erase the firmware of the eMMC.

 

kvim#store init 3

 

2. Carefully read the instructions for launching Armbian. You did not follow the important step of the instruction, did not add the correct dtb.

 

reading dtb.img
** Unable to read file dtb.img **

Thank you !

 

1. I deleted Android 7.1 eMMC because in this version of the android there was no menu to add an google account , there was no playmarket, there were no root, there was no update&upgrade / Unusable Android 7.1

2. I did not find a way to get dtb.img from eMMC , and Amlogic Burning Tool cannot detect TVBOX

 

Then I burn to eMMC  image miniM8SII rv112 , and TVBOX can start now ; hdmi , wifi and usb mouse are  ok . 

Then I update Android with aml_autoscript s905x , and can start ArmbianMate for S912 from mSD ( works well for over a year on another S912 )

I will continue the tests
