Sunvell T95z plus - 2/16GB - S912 - 9377 WiFi issue

Recommended Posts

Hi. 

 

Thanks so much for the effort that's been put in to this. It's really quite amazing what I can do with my little TV box! 

 

I've had some issues getting armbian to work fully though, and I believe it's entirely down to the dtb.img not being quite right. I'm using:

 

gxm_q201_2g.dtb

 

On the xenial mate version found:

 

https://yadi.sk/d/srrtn6kpnsKz2/Linux/ARMBIAN/5.44/kernel_3.14

 

Which, while booting up fine, gives me no WiFi.

 

When I run:

 

dmesg | grep wifi

 

I see several lines like:

 

aml_wifi wifi.36: [wifi_dev_probe] no power_on_pin2

... 

 

(it goes on like that but I can't get a copy and paste from my box, as I can't get it on a network)

 

EDIT: Photo available - https://imgur.com/a/D12wRYr

 

Is there something I should do after booting up to get the WiFi chip working? Or do I need to find a more accurate dtb?

 

I'm really at a loss, and no WiFi is kind of a deal breaker, which would be an absolute shame.

 

Any ideas/advice/links/help/suggestions? 

 

Thanks! 😊

After some more research I've found that if type:

 

sudo modprobe wlan

 

Then run:

 

sudo service network-manager restart

 

When I type:

 

iwconfig

 

I get results like in this: https://imgur.com/a/Gemz8u8

 

But unfortunately no networks show up in the network connection manager. 

 

Also running:

 

sudo iwlist scan

 

Or... 

 

sudo nmcli dev wifi

 

Or... 

 

sudo iw dev wlan scan

 

ALL just run forever. So again. A bit stumped. How can I check if the drivers are installed properly for the chip?
