@balbes150 LE images with Kodi-19 for S9xxx

  • Added test image for x96 max (S905X2). :)

    Please note, this is the alfa image, do not work yet : built-in sound via HDMI, WiFi, HW. Works, wired network, USB sound and USB WiFi. Video playback (up to 1080p included) surprisingly works in SW mode without problems.

  • Image upgrade for X96max (S905X2). Added support for remote control. To use the remote control, you need to configure as described in this topic earlier (rename the appropriate file).

  • And if you just want to stream 720p how much would the kernel 4.x dev issues affect you for HDMI or AV output?

    As far as I know, it should work now. But I do not use Netflix and can be wrong, it is better to check with chewitt . At the moment there are flaws, but LE already works well enough on S905(X) and s912. For S905X2 added support for BT and eMMC. Works full backup\restore and install LE to eMMC via GUI (no SSH required). In my copy of x96max install LE in EMMC, even without HW all 1080p video works without brakes. :)



    PS Congratulations, You have included in the "club of enemies for the nameless individual with CNX". This nameless creature no one respects on CNX, so it uses other people's nicknames. :)

  • shippy Mali450 works with Lima. There are some limitations - missing features and a bit suboptimal performance. This will improve. With the latest Kodi master you can use 720p Netflix with Lima.

    Thanks much for clarification ! I was just worried about moving to 4.x distros like from balbes here.


    So I just use S905, X, W with 1/8GB preferably, streaming 720p or sometimes 1080p. Right now S912, S905X2/Y2 are too high tech for me ...what is the point of JeOS if you still need more memory and CPU ?🐵🐵🐵


    Maybe the next interesting project would be to dual USB boot a home Openwrt router, the $15-20 AliExpress TPlink variety- should be possible 👺👺 Perhaps it can't do Kodi, but VLC possibly.

  • Well I actually didn't mind getting kicked out for violating "GDPR rules ( what???)" as 1/76 Members out of a "5000+" community. Presumably for cross forum posting besides my usual bad attitude 😈👹🐵👺


    I got better support elsewhere.

    Actually it's already 5.x. :D With S905 you are in better situation as if you don't like Lima (it'll improve over time!) you can build with closed-source userspace blob. For obvious reasons this is not possible with S912.


    Fortunately for S9xxX2/Y2 the userspace blob is available until Panfrost supports Bifrost GPUs.

  • Update image LE ver 20190410.


    Question. Someone else uses the model Odroid C2 ? If no one is using test images for this model, I will not spend resources on building and placing them on the site. :)
