[S812] MIII Plus 2Gb\16Gb eMMC

    Do I understand correctly that the image version Minix 20170605 in the list set visible and available WiFi hotspot ? If you try to connect to Wi-Fi TV box hangs ? You can connect to the LE via SSH and run multiple commands ?


    To All

    Pay attention - check to run when you run "clean" system (when running from external media). If you try to run through the upgrade of an existing system, very often the old settings interfere to determine exactly where the error is.

    balbes150 Yes that is correct Minix image 20170605 when I switch Wifi on it finds my connection

    It also finds other connections nearby but when I select connect it does say ready it does not say online

    I just tried again selected wifi and connect rebooted with Ethernet disconnected

    It won't reboot past the Kodi v17.3 screen just freezes

    I then pull power cord insert Ethernet cable reboot fine and runs fine until I go in settings


    Also after restarting I went in LibreElec settings to turn off wifi then the box freeze

  • Arcee Yes this is a strange one as we both have same boxes you can try this

    Make sure Wifi turned off in LibreElec settings reboot box then try BT also connect LAN

    IF it crashes or freezes pull power cord then restart

    I have also had LibreElec settings not ready yet all problems from Wifi switched on

    Thank you for the test. This is a useful infa. You can run multiple commands through the SSH connection ?

  • balbes150 The update tar (Minix\20170606) booted

    I went into LibreELEC settings no Wifi option in Network only wired BT as now stopped working

    line of script under LibreELEC (community) - version: 17.3 says

    [FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.

    See systemct status systemd-modules-load.service for details

    Thanks again for your efforts


    put the update tar from (20170605) working fine again BT working no Wifi must keep Wifi switched off otherwise box freeze

    Edited once, last by mark2 ().

  • Version MXIII_Plus (20170606). Please test the 4k resolution TV.

    Done, unfortunately still the same behavior as before. When I select 4k, the Kodi skin shrinks to quarter size.

    thx for the effort

  • A friend has brought me his Kazoo Box, which I believe is an M8S, 2g8g with the AP6335 chip in it. Is this image " LibreELEC-S812.LAN1000.arm-17.3.img.gz" suitable version of Libreelec for this box?

    MXIII-G, M8 and Beeklink MXIII Plus LE 8.2.2 - Demetris, Mecool M8S Pro+/Abox A1, Abox A1 Max Coreelec 9.0.2. Thanks to all.

    Added another test image (Minix\20170607).

    The chances of this working, not much, but try this option. It uses the dtb from the new Minix firmware 5.1.

    Try all options, perhaps there are different added to the network.

    Thanks Balbes150 for this image. I had tried the last May image and this Kazoo Box just never seemed to work properly. I then tried this June image and the box started up properly and seems to be working excellently. WIFI and Ethernet are working well. All other functions I have tried seem to be working as they should.

    Thanks for keeping this processor/box up to date with Libreelec.

    balbes150 You are correct (Minix\20170607) did not work i tried tar and img.gz

    after reboot nothing wont boot to LibreELEC at all

    thanks for trying

  • 1. The model on the board itself is M8 v8.9 - the firmware it uses, stock, is cyx_m8s_v8.6_bcm4335_8g2g_kodi_addons_160125_USB - there was a newer release but it wouldn't flash for me...odd that the firmware it uses is 8.6, while the board is labeled 8 .9. My dtb file is somewhere earlier in the thread, and as a patch in my fork of your LE repo.


    2. idUI


    3. I guess it would have to be 4.4, no versions beyond this have been functional.

    I have this same board but v8.8, runs the same libreelec versions you have mentioned. I can flash this and wifi, Bluetooth all work but old version kodi. LibreELEC_8.0.0-Begicj-M8S_S812_4335


    I installed the mxIII s8x2 version successfully but clearly this doesn't support my bcm4335 chip so wifi and Bluetooth doesn't work but kodi 17.3. Have you had any success with merging the 4335 support to a .tar update file?

    YEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!


    I installed this build on my Minix X8-H Plus and, for the first time EVER I've got Wi-Fi working in Krypton!!!!

    So happy!!


    But, this is a really old beta version of Krypton. So, if we can get the drivers of this one working in the latest build of balbes150 then problem solved, Wi-Fi will work!


    Problem with this build LibreELEC_8.0.0-Begicj-M8S_S812_4335:

    - The Ethernet/LAN doesn't work on the Minix X8-H Plus


    But, since Wi-Fi works, I'm now connected with SSH through Wi-Fi. Some of the entries that may be of use:


    1. udevadm info /sys/bus/sdio/devices/sdio* output:

    2. lsmod

  • I'm testing this build LibreELEC_8.0.0-Begicj-M8S_S812_4335 a bit more on my Minix X8-H Plus:


    - Ethernet is not working. I've tried to configure the connection manually by setting IP and gateway in the connections screen. But no connection.

    - Wi-Fi works straight away on first run and it's fast.

    - The best news: also 4K works! I've got full screen and it's really 4K and 4K x264 videos do play fine.

    - Didn't test Bluetooth because I wouldn't know what to test it with - and I don't need it to be honest.


    So basically, everything I need works in this build.


    Problem is that installing this one erases everything, my sources.xml and advanced settings and stuff, all gone ;(


    But hey, anything that helps getting Wi-Fi to work on my Minix X8-H Plus..!


    If we'd get the drivers from this build working in the 17.3 build of balbes150 then we've got the perfect Kodi for me and the Minix X8-H Plus is back alive!


  • I have the current version of your git built, do I actually need to modify some files? The scripts etc are all from the image I built using your master branch.
