Looking for DTB of Amlogic S905X+RTL8189ETV

  • Can't make the wifi work on this box. DTBs from other S905Xes work. I am also very curious to install it to internal flash

    ABOX A1 Plus
    S905X 2/8GB RTL8189ETV

    on motherboard: HKW_S905X_01 V1.0 DATE:160726
    RAM: 4x Memolink ml5tq4g16cfr
    Flash: Samsung klm8g1wepd-8031

    booting from USB/TF(SD) via boot2kodi app in Androit (root enabled)

    I've never managed to get the RTL8189ETV to probe correctly but it's been a while since one came along. Start with expaining which dtb you are using to boot the device (which dtb has best overal fit for board features). NB: LE does not support installing to internal emmc on TV box devices; only SBC boards with dedicated images and upstream u-boot support. If you attempt using old scripts and forum posts I guarantee that it goes wrong and I guarantee zero sympathy and support for unbricking things.

    All of these boot up, show UI. I haven't checked Ethernet though (should I?).

    I have seen you being so kind to one of the forum members and making meson-sm1-x96-air-gbit.dtb

    I am willing to be the guinea pig and brick the board if needed. There is something that looks like serial port on the board and I might have connected it to the host once. I can give you access to computer that would have access to the box via ethernet and UART if needed.
