Help a noob out. New H96 Max X2 [905X2]

  • Hi Guys,

    Apologies for the noob post. I’ve recently got a new M96 Max X2 box.

    The specs are;

    Hardware

    CPU

    Amlogic S905X2 Quad Core ARM Cortex A53 @2GHz

    GPU

    ARM Dvalin MP2 GPU

    Memory

    4GB LPDDR4

    Flash

    64GB eMMC

    WiFi

    IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4G/ 5.8G

    Software

    OS

    Android 8.1


    Just wondering if anyone has this box or can point me to a suitable image for this device.

    I’ve had a bit of a search, and found one I think is suitable, but would appreciate advice from the experts.

    I downloaded an image but it won’t boot for some reason. Probably the wrong image?

    Also, can someone point me to a link / sticky on how to do a eMMC dump on this device?


    Haven't done much with media boxes, but do root/xpose my phone so am kind of familiar..
    Just need some pointers in the right direction and a bit of help please. Some good stickies to read etc.

    Thanks Heaps!

    Approved the thread.
  • bazzle Let me know how you go. I was initially looking LE, had heard of CE. But I have CE working pretty well,

    so interested in which you prefer, (and your steps / files for LE).

    Cheers!

  • Will post back my LE steps if ok.

    I used to use LE a lot but went to CE when they forked to support Amlogic stuff (I think that what was happened)

    Its (CE) working very well for me atm.
