As LibreELEC is the way forward with these Boxes as the supplied Android image is pretty much garbage, I have made an update for all S905/X Nexbox's with 2GB of RAM.
This is based on the 2016-10-03-devel version.
All I have done is included the dtb.img. Without it HD audio won't work and gives the crackling sound. I have also replaced the Nexbox boot image with the default Amlogic S905X boot image.
To install just flash with TWRP recovery.
(This is the TWRP recovery for the Nexbox A5, it may work with other S905X boxes but I have only tested it with the Nexbox A5. To install, rename the file recovery.img and place it onto a sd card then put it into the box. Hold the reset button while powering on the device and it will boot into TWRP. You can install TWRP to the Nexbox A5's recovery by going to install, selecting "image" instead of zip, and flashing it to "recovery".)
This should work with:
- Tanix TX5 Pro
- Nexbox A5
- Nexbox A95x
- COOLEME MB1
I've tried this on Tanix TX5 (non pro) and I can't seem to get it working.
I was able to get it installed and working last night, but the remote wasn't working so I used USB tool to reinstall stock firmware, then tried the same process as last night and I'm no longer able to get LE to boot after install.
Is there anything I should be changing for 8gb version (non pro)?
EDIT: Im guessing it was to do with partition sizes. Anyways I got it to install again by formatting data and then installing.
Still can't get remote to work though, unsure of how to extract remote.conf from stock firmware seeing how I have formatted my storage.
