MXQ PRO 4k - LibreELEC won't boot

  • Hello,

    I just bought MXQ PRO 4k and have problem with boot LibreELEC from SD Card.

    I choose the newest one version of image: LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.2-8.1.10.img.gzand prepare SD Card by "dd" command on terminal:

    sudo dd if=LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.2-8.1.10.img of=/dev/rdisk3 bs=4m.

    I found dtb file gxbb_p200_1G_mxq_pro_4k.dtb and used it (change name, replace another on SD main directory).

    Toothpick method start Android System Recovery but LibreELEC won't boot.

    I tried with another versions of LE and tried to use different dtb files (1G, 100M) but it's for nothing.

    What am I doing wrong?

  • What am I doing wrong?

    Try another tool to prepare sd card.

    I use rufus - works perfect on my boxes and raspberrys

  • The recovery screen shows that it is built for a rockchip SoC. You cannot use the amlogic libreelec release with your box.

    Thank u, for your help. Fortunately, I was able to exchange box to another with s905x on board (btw. box looks identically, thx. chinese). Now everything works perfectly.
