LibreELEC 9.0.0 builds for S905 (semi official)

  • What would the changes of this working on an s905x be? Currently running the kszaq libreelec 8.2 build installed to internal.

    There are tons of changes compared to the build you are running as you are running Kodi Krypton and LibreELEC 9 is Kodi Leia... You can find more information from LibreELEC blog, Kodi Leia and so on. I highly advice you to upgrade if you are playing HEVC files, 4K etc as there are important changes for better playback.

    And by the way, don't install LibreELEC to internal! Instead, read [HOWTO] Boot from SD card, use internal memory for data to boot from SD card/usb while using internal storage for Kodi! The booting time might take som seconds longer, yet the performance with Kodi is the same :) While it's more bulletproof and you can dual-boot other builds as Android etc

  • hello, I have MXQ Pro 4K Box, version with S905X SoC it boots up, and install it self on sd card then after reboot I can hear the sound but there is no screen and TV is displaying no-signal

    any idea why is that, and how to solve it?

  • Really thanks CvH,
    installed on Beelink MINIMXIII-II and Zenoplige Z11 PRO, everything works great, even the remote controls after changing files with those kindly put by users in the thread LE9.0 remote configs ir-keytable Amlogic devices 0-remote-configs-ir-keytable-amlogic-devices /

    I'll try them for some time then if they are stable I install on the internal eMMCs where I already have LibreELEC 8.2

  • Hello,

    thanks for the great work. I have three S905X boxes. Two are perfect.

    However, the SMBOX SM2 (1GB / 8GB) can not run the ./installtointernal command from # 8.


    One of BOOT, SYTEM, DATA or DTB partitions is missing.

    Make sure you are using a correct device tree and a device with internal me mory!


    As device tree I use the gxl_p212_1g.dtb.

    Can someone help me please.

  • it doesn't work" because it's not included in the image .. because it causes a HUGE number of support issues and provides a marginal speed bump over a fast SD card.

  • "FAV" button for favorite items (e.g. for internet streams or etc) is missing in remote control of KI Pro

    I have use the installtointernal script from corelec github : reactivity is a lot better

  • "FAV" button for favorite items (e.g. for internet streams or etc) is missing in remote control of KI Pro

    I tried to map all keys in the remote. Some of them don't do what I wold expect (e.g. KEY_TV doesn't show live tv but a list of tv shows) others don't do nothing, but at least it has all the keycodes.

    This is my map:

    This is my map:

    change channel language audio on the audio button

    and forwarded to kodi songs!

    it's possible to fix thi

    It is useless knowledge if not shared the world.

  • Oh, the "audio" button is the one with the code 0x01 that I mapped to KEY_AUDIO (thinking that it would switch audio tracks), but later I found that it goes to the music menu.

    What KEY_ mapping should I use to switch audio tracks instead? And what mapping to go to the live tv section (KEY_TV doesn't)?


    Other keys that apparently do nothing are:

    • KEY_HOMEPAGE (home button on the remote, code 0x0d)
    • KEY_FAVORITES (fav button, 0x1f))
    • KEY_MENU (menu button, 0x45)
    • KEY_APPSELECT (apps button, 0x58)
    • KEY_WWW (browser button, 0x18)
  • Yes, but without support.

    Maybe You will brick the box

    yeah mate I know the risks and obviously it's all my own doing if I do 😃 I usually install to internal so shouldn't be a problem,could you point me in right direction maybe?

  • Sadly WiFi is not working for me and I had to manually copy and rename gxl_p212_2g.dtb to dtb.img, otherwise it didn't past the bootlogo.
    Device: Mecool M8s Pro+ (Pro Plus) S905X


    I have no idea about the wifi, maybe you have some.

    USB Wifi works, only builtin wifi doesn't work.

    I have no idea which chipset the builtin wifi has, It works on LE 8.2.5



  • Are you sure that one is S905X and not S905W ?

    That is the device tree error that i had weeks ago. All my x96 minis were gxl_212, but now are new gxl_281 devices.


    Hope it helps you.

  • On my K1Plus and Yamaha RX-V677 does not work direct sound output in DTS(DTS soundtrack going in PCM) . In Dolby Dogital all ok. On 8.2.3.1 both standarts played ok. Wat's wrong?
