Test LibreELEC images with KODI-19 for S9xxx

  • An acquaintance has tried a TR99 with s905x2 (2gb)and this has been commented to me.

    DTB used meson-g12a-u200

    Remote: Ok
    Boot: Ok

    Wifi No

    Ethernet: OK, but he had to enter the ip manually
    Thermostat CPU: No
    Bluetooth: No

    Addons: Ok

    Video X264: OK

    Sound: OK

    When the box is turned off, then it can not be turned on with the remote. Making you unplug it and plug it back in to turn it on.

  • LibreELEC-AMLGX.aarch64-9.1-devel-20190524115650-a41fdf1-box.img using meson-g12a-x96-max-rmii.dtb booted with wired network and audio on T95Q s905x2. It would not boot with the default dtb.

  • AMLGX is for GXBB/GXL/GXM hardware

    AMLG12 is for G12A/B hardware

    Assume LibreELEC-AMLG12.aarch64-9.1-devel-20190523111656-a41fdf1-khadas-vim2.img.gz provided by balbes150 Here is for a khadas vim3 and is currently named incorrectly for khadas vim2 ?


    I am Currently running LibreELEC-AMLGX.arm-9.1-devel-20190521114453-a41fdf1-box.img.gz on my vim2 Pro and experiencing black GUI text, ref this thread post. My current understanding as interested kodi user with khadas vim2 Pro, is to maintain my focus on recent AMLGX.arm-9.1 (32bit) “box” builds as these particular named builds will most likely have highest level of LibreELEC + kodi addon focus/support for vim2 Pro moving forward.

  • Can the test images for C2 be installed over an official 9.0.2 and maintain all settings, addons, library etc? Or must it be a clean wipe of everything?


    Is it then possible to go back to official 9.0.2 in the same way?

  • Differences in boot configuration require you to do a clean install but "backup > clean install > restore" should work fine. You will need to reset the audio config as the device names will change.

  • Although not for the C2, I can personally vouch for what chewitt has stated, as have been regularly "enjoying :/" installing and updating latest builds on SD for use with my khadas vim2 pro where "LibreELEC backup" before and "LibreELEC restore of backup" after is extremely sound advice in eliminating or at least minimising work involved to maintain installation with addons, consistently set-up and operating as I would expect.

    I don't know WTF is going on with the content of images if people are booting G12 hardware on a GX image.. but to make any progress on creating a device tree for the N5 someone needs to pop the case open and explain which WiFi and Ethernet chip(s) are in the box, and whether it uses internal or external PHY?

  • Restarting is not working.

    Always hangs on screen LibreELEC


    Now I have problems with mecool control, after configured

    it works perfectly!

    After switching off and on the control box does not respond.

  • Anyone did manage to get 5.x working with Beelink GT1 Ultimate (S912, 3GB, 1G Lan)? LibreELEC-S912.arm-9.0-devel-20181218091149-83ec702 does work, but 5.x img get stuck on LE boot img. Attached a boot with 2019.05.21. 0526 doesn#t provide that error but still stuck at boot screen.

    It is what was in the s905x2 directory, as you can see in your directory. That day nothing was released for s905 *. https://yadi.sk/d/dhepyyrcterlf/leia-18/kernel_5.x/20190524/s905x2

    I'll let you know if you can open the box, to see what wifi and Ethernet are applied.

    Ethernet: Pulse H5007NL
