[8.90.6] LibreELEC 9.0 Alpha for S905/S912 devices

  • I just picked up an Abox A1 Max S905W, and tried both the gxl_p281_2g.dtb and gxl_p281_2g_tanixtx3.dtb files, but still can't get the LCD to display anything other than 'boot'. Wifi, video, and sound work fine so I know I'm on the right track, but it's just weird that the LCD panel doesn't work. Do I need a custom dtb file for this configuration and LCD panel? If so, how would I go about creating one? Many thanks in advance!

  • I set it to:

    Code
    1. ir-keytable -D 100 -P 400

    For my remote it now works faster and fewer unexpected repeating
    May be somebody have another optimal values.

    To make this permanent, just write this to autostart.sh? In that file somwehere specific or is it just egal?

    Create autostart.sh and copy to .config

    There isn't one in this build by default.

  • 8.90.4 seems to have broken the ability to use a skin shortcut to execute rebootfromnand.

    The command still works if issued via SSH but not via shortcut / script.

    I have the same issue with estuary-skin! :(


    At the moment I click on "Reboot from internal" and then I click on "Reboot".

    Sometimes I have luck and the box will rebot to internal Android. Sometimes not! :(

    Alternative solution: power off, remove sd card, then power on. The box will boot to android.

    That's a bad solution, because I have to stand up and leave my comfortably sofa! ;)

    dtb's are device specific, what works for one box may not work for another, PM The Coolest who may be able to help in creating one for your device.

    I've tried with aeon.nox and estuary skins, both of which have no problem with this in earlier versions, but nothing happens at all with the latest build. Can anyone else who is dual booting using a rebootfromnand shortcut confirm that they are still able to with 8.90.4.

    There appears to be changes upstream which appears to have broken executing shell commands from inside Kodi, looking into it.

    Selecting reboot from internal and then reboot appears to work for now.

    That'll do for now :thumbup:

    Did the DTB I provided last night fix the problem?

  • LOL

  • Hello, I'm loosing my wifi connection. It's a bit similar to this old issue I think. I'm still connected but I got no connection. If I download or stream I loose the connection faster. No freeze. Ethernet works.
    I did not have this issue with LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.2-8.2.3.1, I got an s905x tanix3pro. I hope this was not already discussed but I could not find any post related.
