S802/S812-Libreelec images for 7/8/9

  • Sorry this is the file.

    aml_autoscript.zip

    Is missing from the img file

    I flashed Finless 2.1 on my box and the flashed this file as you mentioned. I got an error in recovery after reboot. I then attempted to flash the s82 new image again and I got file system corrupt error... No Luck!

  • I realize this may be disloyal to this forum but Alex has Leia 18.2 RC1 working great on the ARM. I've SD installed the AlexELEC-S9XX.arm-3.0.4.img.gz


    I'm sure Alexelec does good work and I'm sure its all legitimate, but the addition of extra gaming stuff makes it feel way too "BUY THIS UBER LOADED BOX"ish to me. I would much rather have just a clean Kodi install and add what I like later.


    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I managed to flash the other mxIII rom and it installed fine. Installtointernal doesn't seem to work, and the ethernet doesn't work, even if I set an ip manually.

  • has anyone got a s812 tronsmort mxiii 1GB working on kodi 17 or 18?, I have no wired internet using this build

  • set kodi setting in "expert mode" , define a whitelist

    did this work for anybody? how did you define a while list.

    edit:

    decided to go back to 8.2.3 for now.

    file:settingssettingslevel-leia.png -> set to "expert mode"

    https://kodi.wiki/view/settings/player => adjust display refresh rate -> start/stop

    https://kodi.wiki/view/settings/system/display => define a whitelist eg : your tv runs at 1080p 60hz. In the whitelist put :1080p 60hz 1080p 24hz

    like this your tv refresh rate will change to 24hz when is needed, limiting the judder.

  • Thank you Demetris. For supporting these boxes!

    I have just updated from 8.2.3 to 9 using your LibreELEC-MXIII_Plus.arm-9.0-devel-20190207022938-5e27f15.


    I had the same issue above, regarding system freeze when fast forwarding and stopping a video. But after changing to start/stop and whitelisting some resolutions that fixed it. (thank you datrh)


    I cannot installtointernal via ssh.


    LibreELEC:~ # installtointernal

    sh: installtointernal: Permission denied


    But all seems good, even running on a really old sd card lol

  • try : chmod +x installtointernal (to get the right permission on the file )and then type : installtointernal

  • ok guys since my devices have updates mixed up as i flashed custom bootloaders on them i will try to revert to oem amlogic bootloader that all of you have and try again to produce working images for all people :)

    Sorry for the mess i caused for some of you.

    Will take a while though, do you want the released images removed in the mean time? Let me know.

    I have been trying to flash bootloaders to get you latest s82 image to boot but still no success. I flashed the boot loader from this thread: [ROM] Unofficial OpenELEC for MXIII-G & Tronsmart MXIII+ - FreakTab


    I could not find any other bootloaders to flash. I tried flashing the latest firmware from here: MXIII Plus Android TV Box Firmwares -


    But that just says error wrong device.


    If there is a bootloader I should flash I sure would appreciate some guidance, as I have been searching and flashing for a long time trying to figure it out.


    Thanks!

    I did this and it still locks up Kodi when I hit the stop button or try and scroll forward or backward.

    Hi all,


    I did these steps and mine also freezes when I FastForward or stop video.


    Cheers,

  • It did so for me as well until I set the display resolution (Settings-System-Display-Resolution) to 1920x1080 (for me it defaulted to 1280). I would assume you'd need to match whatever your TV's resolution is and set the whitelist to match.

  • try : chmod +x installtointernal (to get the right permission on the file )and then type : installtointernal

    Hi datrh, I just tried that and got this error...


    LibreELEC:~ # chmod +x installtointernal

    chmod: installtointernal: No such file or directory

    LibreELEC:~ # installtointernal

    -sh: installtointernal: Permission denied

    LibreELEC:~ #


    Do you know of anything else to try? many thanks


    Edit:

    this did the job. Worked perfectly.

    LibreELEC:~ # cp /usr/sbin/installtointernal /tmp

    LibreELEC:~ # chmod a+x /tmp/installtointernal

    LibreELEC:~ # /tmp/installtointernal


    This script will erase BOOT, SYSTEM, and DATA on your device

    and install LE that you booted from SD card/USB drive.


    The script does not have any safeguards!

    Mine was already at 1080. I tried changing down to 720p. I tried different HDMI cables. I Tried different HDMI inputs on my TV. (BTW my TV is a RCA 48" LED Dont know the exact model but that should be new enough) Nope 17.6 works nice. Any suggestions for getting 18 to work so far has resulted in hard lockups when trying to stop a video or scroll backward or forward.


    EDIT: Still waiting for a 9.0.1 version. The base 9.0.1 has been out for about 2 weeks now.

    my bad , you're right. I always forget the read-only part.

  • Hello, I'm new to this forum. I would like to know the exact procedure to install librelec on my old MXIII S802 2GB Ram (not Plus, not G). It's completely stock 109k4 firmware.


    Thanks in advance

  • This is just great, thanks so much. A new lease of life for my senile old M8 box.


    Only one problem here, all 3 shutdown options just reboot so have to pull the power to switch off. Otherwise perfect. (Eny M8 Square box)
