[8.90.6] LibreELEC 9.0 Alpha for S905/S912 devices

  • thank you everyone


    it seems to work the Netflix now :)


    thx again

    It would be more helpful for other people if you would tell us what the problem was and how you ended up fixing it.

    MECOOL KIII Pro (S912)

    Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, overclock mode: 'Pi2' (1000/500/500/2), gpu_mem_1024: '320'

  • Downloaded your dtb, copied it to libreelec partition, named it dtb.img ... tried to boot... still stuck at mxqpro logo :-(

    Maybe you need to use another dtb.

    Code
    1. 2018-01-19 09:41:15.015 xmltv: /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/bin/tv_grab_file: grab /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/bin/tv_grab_file
    2. 2018-01-19 09:41:15.023 spawn: Executing "/storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/bin/tv_grab_file"
    3. 2018-01-19 09:41:15.265 xmltv: /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/bin/tv_grab_file: no output detected
    4. 2018-01-19 09:41:15.265 xmltv: /storage/.kodi/addons/service.tvheadend42/bin/tv_grab_file: grab returned no data

    Seems that tv_grab_file can't parse the settings.xml file. Can someone confirm?


    I would suggest to change from:


    Code
    1. ADDON_HOME="$HOME/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/service.tvheadend42"
    2. ADDON_SETTINGS="$ADDON_HOME/settings.xml"
    3. XMLTV_TYPE=`grep XMLTV_TYPE $ADDON_SETTINGS | awk '{print $3 }' | sed -e "s,value=,," -e "s,\",,g"`
    4. XMLTV_LOCATION_FILE=`grep XMLTV_LOCATION_FILE $ADDON_SETTINGS | awk '{print $3 }' | sed -e "s,value=,," -e "s,\",,g"`
    5. XMLTV_LOCATION_WEB=`grep XMLTV_LOCATION_WEB $ADDON_SETTINGS | awk '{print $3 }' | sed -e "s,value=,," -e "s,\",,g"`
    6. XMLTV_LOCATION_SCRIPT=`grep XMLTV_LOCATION_SCRIPT $ADDON_SETTINGS | awk '{print $3 }' | sed -e "s,value=,," -e "s,\",,g"`

    TO

    Code
    1. ADDON_HOME="$HOME/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/service.tvheadend42"
    2. ADDON_SETTINGS="$ADDON_HOME/settings.xml"
    3. XMLTV_TYPE=`xml sel -t -v '//settings/setting[@id="XMLTV_TYPE"]' -nl $ADDON_SETTINGS`
    4. XMLTV_LOCATION_FILE=`xml sel -t -v '//settings/setting[@id="XMLTV_LOCATION_FILE"]' -nl $ADDON_SETTINGS`
    5. XMLTV_LOCATION_WEB=`xml sel -t -v '//settings/setting[@id="XMLTV_LOCATION_WEB"]' -nl $ADDON_SETTINGS`
    6. XMLTV_LOCATION_SCRIPT=`xml sel -t -v '//settings/setting[@id="XMLTV_LOCATION_SCRIPT"]' -nl $ADDON_SETTINGS`

    There was already a fix for this merged with LE recently, I just need to update the addon on the server.


    -edit

    Addon has been updated, you will need to refresh your addons for it to download

  • The 9.0 ones only work with the LE/amlogic kernel which I do not use, you must use the ones from the 8.2 folder for these builds, it does state that in the README on the downloads.

    DTB's are very specific to the kernel in use and they must match for your device to boot.

    Okay, that's now clear to me.


    But... at least one 1G option (my box only has 1G) from 8.2 folder should work, right? What should I do if none is working? Even the one you attached a few post earlier?
    Is this really a "guesswork only" task? Isn't there an option to "see" whats going wrong? No log, no output, no trace?


    -- update

    with help of How to Extract a Device Tree File from Android Firmware Files, I decompiled the 8.0.1 working device tree, and compared it 8.2 device tree with same file-naming-scheme. There are a lot of differences, but as I absolutely have no device-tree-skills, I have no idea if this is correct, or if something has to be changed.

    See attached, decompiled device tree sources.


    working 8.0

    matching 8.2, but not working

  • GDPR-2 there is one thing to check for 3D playback. 3D playback is not supported by any TV in 4K, so far there is even no standard for 3D in 4K. What happens with libreelec when the output resolution is set to 4k, is that when starting a 3D playback, the output is a kind of weird. My projector still says 4k, but no valid format is detected. I guess it is just a completely wrong screen type set by libreelec.

    The correct behaviour is to swith to 1080p and send the 3D mode over HDMI (as it is already perfectly done today when the output resolution is 1080p)

    Bye

    Thanks.

  • I managed to attach the serial console with an FTDI and captured the output of boot process where the screen get's stuck at mxqpro logo.


    Hope that helps for further analysis?!


    serial_console_log_broken_dtb.txt


    ---- update

    Tried to check the output, but did not find anything special, problematical, except maybe a lot of messages like


    "recover_current_block_mapping invalid page data!!"


    But boot process continues after that.

  • Pls help!

  • Non ho capito la tua modifica, ma non posso davvero aiutarti con questo.

    Se puoi andare su Android e inviarmi il contenuto della cartella / proc / device-tree / fd628_dev, potrei riuscire a creare un albero di dispositivi personalizzato da provare.

    thanks for reply i just come back from work and yes ... give me 10 minutes and i will send you
