  • alexeiyo You have to provide full path in second command. I assumed you know how dd works.


    If you run LE from SD card the path to dtb.img on SD card is /flash/dtb.img

    Still, after being rebooted from the internal storage, elec wouldn't start.

    Any suggestions?

    The Sd card installed system is 64bit build. Does that matter?

  • Just got a Minix U1 up and running (8.0.2d) ,- huge thanks to the devs!!! Could anyone here confirm if they can get a 5ghz wifi connection? I can only see 2.4ghz networks.

    You should be able to but I won't be able to confirm this until my new router arrives.

    I can get 5GHz ac wifi signal, works great.

  • UPDATE: Downgraded to 8.0.2b and I get the same result when trying to copy to nand. All I get is a black screen when I try to boot from the nand; no boot logo, nothing, just pure blackness. When I put the USB stick that has LibreElec on it, it boots up fine from the USB stick.


    Any suggestions? As I stated previously, I've had these builds running off the internal disk before I tried to update to 8.0.2d.

  • just wanted to report to kszaq that latest build 8.0.2d (2017-06-27) is working great on my MXQ Pro 4k (s905 - p201) box.


    It sees WiFi networks, plays video flawlessly etc.


    I have not used the LIRC build (to use the IR remote the box came with) but I am using my regular TV remote over HDMI-CEC.


    I do have one question, what process are you guys using to write to local flash memory on your boxes?



    I am still running off of SD card since I am upgrading from my other Raspberry Pi B 2 based LibreELEC system.

  • just ssh and type installtointernal when running from sd.
