[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.0 for S805

  • Hi, Kszaq


    Can You tell me How Can I build from source LibreElec NAND Release .zip update for MXQ with 512MB RAM memory?


    I've build the image earlier, but forgot which version source code I used. After that old version you have changed something and the image doesn't work anymore on 512GB RAM devices

    I have two boxes: One original Mxq S805 with 1GB RAM and the image works fine

    Another one is maybe chinese replica with 512GB Ram. It flashes , but can't boot. Struck on the LOGO. (yelllow logo S805)

    If I use your image for m210d - it works.

    But I want to build my own image from source.

    What should I change in the source tree to build .zip package for NAND for 512MB Ram memory?


    Best Regards

  • Thanks a lot ksa! LibreElec made me so much easy to see tv series and movies. But i have noticed one bug, in the end of the video playback, the last 4 or 5 seconds the video freezes so it's a little annoing with some tv relases. Same bug was in the 8.0.1 release. This happend with any video format (.mp4 and .mkv). I have installed LibreElec in dual boot (in sd card). Hope you help me and thanks again! Great work!

    I tried, but without success. Downloaded the files from your link: backuptool.sh, update-binary, updater-script

    I built the source, but now it doesn't want to flash the device. Tried with toothpick method.

    After that I flashed with LibreELEC-S805.m201d.arm-7.0.3.2.zip and the device started just fine.

    Via SSH updated with my image (/storage/.update).

    Rebooted the device, it flashed, but again after that hanged on LOGO :(

  • Thanks for the update kszaq, but i have an other bug, when i stop the video for another the system freezes, and i have to unplug the energy source for rebooting. Update from 8.0.2a

  • Thx for the update.

    Updating from 8.0.2a-HD18Q to 8.0.2c-HD18Q is working fine so far without any bugs on my MXQ S805-V1.0-SDO-20151223.

    Same problem with, freezes everytime I stop or go back...

  • I've deleted 8.0.2c from download server until the issue is resolved.

    It's always good to see progression is being made.......


    I must say though i updated my S805 to your 8.0.2c and i've has no issues what so ever.... I know it all comes down to board types, chip sets and firmwares and all.


    Just thought i would share that 8.0.2c fully works for me

  • I've deleted 8.0.2c from download server until the issue is resolved.

    I haven't any problem with this release (LibreELEC-S805.arm-8.0-8.0.2c-MXQ.img).


    For information I'm booting from the SD-CARD.


    The only problem I have, is the led which doesn't turn in blue when the box is online.

  • I am booting from internal, if it matters..

    And I updated few times, this is first time I have problem...

    Everything worked great so far, I have MXQ HD18...

  • just got one MK808B + from friend and am going to install LE on sd card


    on index of /s805/8.0.1b download page is 3 versions available - for HD18Q , MXQ , m201d


    which one is for MK808B +


    thanks in advance

  • kamacnik1 For MK808B+ use MXQ build. It is buried in FAQ, I think I should expose this somehow.


    I am now rebuilding 8.0.2c as I have identified and fixed freezing issue.
