hi all, I'm hoping someone can please help me - I have an old Beelink M8 box - one of the first round black and red coloured media players and I've tried the following images on SD card, but nothing boots.. I just have the grey boot screen (which flickers a few seconds after initial boot.. then nothing).
I have used win32diskimager to write them to the known working SD card but none of them appear to work.
is there another boot image I should be using? is my box bound for the rubbish? any comments / help much appreciated. thank you.
EDIT: also I want to check my expectations - the unpacked IMG on the SD card should be booted to, just like my newer mini M8S box does right? I don't need to update the firmware on the Beelink and it's internally booting from that correct?
EDIT 2: Friday - no comments? I'm asking about booting as early libreelec needed to install to NAND from memory, it didn't boot from SD card. Should I try booting from USB?
EDIT 3: I've now tried LibreELEC-S802.M8.arm-8.0.RC4.img written to SD card using win32diskimager and I press the toothpick in the AV port and feel the button click, hold it in for count of 5 then let go.. but still no booting from the SD card. what am I doing wrong please? thank you.
EDIT 4: Sunday.. wow no comments or assistance, slightly surprising considering how active this thread has been recently. Ok so looks like the S802 cannot boot direct from an SD card unless you install a modified bootloader? I'm reading up how to do that for my Beelink M8 S802 round box, but would still appreciate any assistance / comments on booting libreelec + Kodi on this system. Thank you.
