[S812] MIII Plus 2Gb\16Gb eMMC

  • My M8S seems ENY's M8S 2GB/8GB. I try Libreelec 8.0 I could install and works. But remote couldn't work only I can use for power off.
    And problem with reboot, I had to re plug always. I think it's dtb problem where can I found my device tree?

    Thank you so much your great job! balbes150

    I'm running Balbes latest lan1000 version on my ENY M8S just fine. No problems with the remote or power on/off. I will post my remote.conf this evening.

  • Hi everybody,


    MXIII-G (or similar) + Libreelec -> ACE or SopCast streams possible or not? I could not get it working so far...

  • My recovery firmware comes from the ENY site (search for EM8S): EM8-M8C and M8S Amlgoic S812 Support Firmware-Android TV Box , Android TV Sitck,Google TV Box, Google TV Stick, China Manufacturer Supplier

  • Anyone try for MXIII v4.0 motherboard? 2gb+8gb s812....I believe also BCM4335. Someone told me theres one that works but i havent been able to find it yet.


  • Thank you for your help, but when I put modified remote.conf to configuration folder HDMI-CEC doesn't work
    So I use keymap editor addon to solve, then TV remote and original cheap remote works well both :)

    yeah I havnt been able to boot any Libreelec with Kodi17 on it from SDcard since they started being made. Have to use a USB flash drive, and even then I have one that works, and one that doesnt.

  • This version of LibreELEC could't setting tvheadennd 4.2

  • balbes150 -

    I'm on a Matricom Gbox Q2 (S812)

  • For easier debugging, support WiFi, I have collected new images Armnian (Ubuntu Mate). This system is NOT yet intended for full video playback. This way is convenient for debugging and testing of the various modules and settings. To use. To download an image, burn to media, you can activate the multi-boot. All operations in the same way as when using LE. Pay attention to one difference - to start, you must be sure to manually add the correct dtb file (dtb.img) to the root of the FAT partition (you can choose from existing files on the media in the directory dtb). For WiFi settings you need from the terminal to boot to the desired module. For example "sudo modrobe dhd". Details initial settings Armbian to run the system can be read on the forum Armbian (the principles are the same for all models s8xxx and s9xxx). That would make work wifi network, You can freely in the working system to change\add configuration files to add / change files, firmware, etc. once You get a working configuration, it will be possible to port it to LE and assemble a working image LE.

  • Thanks a lot Balbes, I really appreciate your work. As your LibreElec runs fine on my Eny M8S, I don't really need the testing, but I definitely will try you armbian version.

    Is it technically possible to use Kszaq's 905 strategy of making builds that you burn and add the correct dtb to?


    I just used it on a few 905x devices and it's a very flexible approach.
