addons refreshed/latest version (source CoreELEC/LibreELEC)
build for s802/s812 => they are the same no matter you use a X8-X8H (s802) or a X8H-plus(s812)

If you want to give a try, you need to install them from zip.
the fact that it was possible to build them doesn't mean that they're functional.
to be able to shutdown , you need to reflash the box
It has been tested on the X8-H with success.
how to set Kodi in "expert mode"
how to patch the minix bootloader :
- burn the GZ img to a SD
- browse the SD and rename "boot_autoscript" to "boot.scr"
- insert the SD in the minix
- boot the minix while holding reset switch for 5 -6 sec (the bootloader will be patched)
- let Libreelec boots and configure ssh, etc
- restore your cfg if needed
how to "installtointernal" :
- ssh the box and type "installtointernal", follow the instructions
- remove the SD of the box, reboot and enjoy.
not working :
- analog audio via mini-jack
- auto frame rate switching
- hdmi spdif passthrough
- Minix IR remote
- extra kodi patches (resolution whitelist version 2)
- DVBs latest included (due to addons refreshed from CoreELEC/LibreELEC source , the DVB modules are to find in CoreELEC drivers in Kodi).
to be able to build the DVB package, some modules have been disabled. Same as above : "the fact that it was possible to build them doesn't mean that they're functional."
- Mac Address fixed (tks Chewitt for the hint)
- some patches taken from Chewitt amlogic-master
- X8-HP : dtb ethernet part reverted
ps : 50 hz fix some issues see LibreELEC 9.X / Kodi 18.X for Minix X8,X8H,X8H+
- shutdown fixed
- installtointernal execute right fixed
- static ip address fixed for utp lan
- freeze when no adjust refresh rate activated => fixed
- whitelist not needed anymore (kodi 18.1 feature)
to get the best of it :
- you need a tv supporting 24hz/24p and you need to set (in Kodi) "adjust refresh rate" (and have to define a "whitelist")
- about the audio, you will need to try and find the right setting.It depends your tv, amps,.. (with my denon i've been more successful with Amlogic M8-analog but again there're no general rules)
- some users have been able to boot from SD after having reflashed the Minix firmware. (again no general rules, sometimes it depends SD cards, firmware,..
- patching the bootloader may be also tricky
Community tips and tricks :
They're really specific to Minix X8/X8-H/X8-HP.
Means only dtb's for these devices are included.

ps: i just mod/adapt things, i don't pretend to be a dev
remote.conf : Create remote.conf from scratch
for the X8-HP users only : test the LibreELEC-X8-H_Series image first, if it doesn't boot from SD , use the LibreELEC-X8-H_PlusGen1
No need to repatch the bootloader if you have already try one of my LE8.9.xx image.
