Test LE images with Kodi-19 for S9xxx

  • The image LE-9 with the kernel 4.18.

    Nothing found — Yandex.Disk

    I am looking for volunteers to test the system installation mode in eMMC. A prerequisite is the presence of the UART console connection.

    Please note, this is a test version and it has a lot of mistakes. I strongly recommend not to use it for beginners.

    Where can I find the dtb.img file for WP2?

  • Hi there! So you say this firmware also works for M8S? I have exactly the same box, currently on android 4.4.2.

    Yes, mine is KK 4.4.2 as well.

    Remote control does not work, you need to use any usb wireless remote.

    Remote s*cks anyway )) Does it see all ram? How huge is the performance difference?
    How do I install img.gz?

  • How do I install img.gz?

    If you have not run LibreElec on your M8S before, then you need to first activate multi-boot from an image written to USB (you only do this once)


    I noticed you also posted in this thread... [S812] MIII Plus 2Gb\16Gb eMMC

    If you read page #1 you will find a lot of tips...especially post #11 about multi-boot and installing img.gz (I think "Download img.xz" was meant to be "Download img.gz)

    Also, I used a USB stick to write img.gz because I kept getting corrupt errors when using SD card.


    Even though I tried LibreElec 9 (Kodi 18 Leia) and it worked, I'm not using it because (1) whitelist does not contain all the required framrates (2) cannot get Dolby Digital 5.1 passthrough (3) no remote control support


    I reverted back to Kodi 17.6 Krypton which has all those things working. (LibreELEC-S812.arm-17.6_20180106-MXIII_Plus.img.gz as in post #1)

  • hi balbes: can you make a 64bit build for Odroid C2 ? I am having adamg's latest coreelec build.

    I want to upgrade it to your build and test if the video stuttering problem is solved.

    Thanks...

    Good to see you making major LE contributions as well ! 👻👻


    1. Great ideas both, since they eliminate a lot of manual work.


    Is it possible for you to just look at the LibreElec remote.conf and mxq repo for many such files?

    2. Does installtointernal (to eMMC) eliminate remote.conf incompatibility for IR remotes with your generic S905/X/W Kodi 18alpha builds?

  • I've installed the image S912 20180814 on my Minix U9 and its working great apart from I don't get any AAC sound output. Raw TS files with AAC sound or iPlayer, doesn't seem to matter. Is anyone else having an issue with this before I do a wipe and troubleshoot settings?

  • Hi. I've burned the .gz to the SD and used toothpic method, but got some console errors.

    As I mentioned, I had no luck installing from SD card. Can you try with a USB to see if it works?
