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

  • Could you please be kind and point me, step by step, how to do this? Which file to download (.zip or else) and how to do an update? Thanks


    download LibreELEC-S802.M8.arm-7.0.2-2-devel.zip . Unzip and put the 2 files on SD card and do toothpick install.


    After install complete, download LibreELEC-S802.arm-8.0.1a-M8.tar . With M8 turned on and connected to your network, login to box or connect via windows and put tar file in "update" folder. Reboot M8.


    Say Thank You to Demetris

  • Just got the 8.0 working yesterday on minix x8h , what are the advantages of 8.0.1 and how to update ? I'm running from sd card. Thanks


    Use your pc to navigate to your minix box using samba share (windows explorer)


    Download the s82 img.gz release and put it in the update folder on your box. Reboot the box and it will update automatically for you

  • I installed Libreelec-S802.arm-8.0.1a-S82.img.gz via sdcard on a minix x8-h device, now I want to install it on the NAND but when I execute the command I get the error

    Code
    LibreELEC: ~ # installtointernal
    -sh: installtointernal: Permission denied


    Any ideas?


    Thanks in advance

    I got this too! Been asking for a fix for a while.

  • Ok, I've seen that it's a permissions issue, but when I try to make it executable I get another error

    Code
    LibreELEC:/usr/sbin # ls -l ins*
    lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            13 Mar 12 18:45 insmod -> /usr/bin/kmod
    -rw-rw-r--    1 root     root          2981 Mar 12 20:03 installtointernal
    LibreELEC:/usr/sbin # chmod +x installtointernal 
    chmod: installtointernal: Read-only file system
    LibreELEC:/usr/sbin #

    chmod: installtointernal: Read-only file system
    LibreELEC:/usr/sbin #


    Fixed, I copy the file /usr/bin/installtointernalto in the / folder and from there change the permissions
    chmod +x installtointernal
    , then run it and it is already working

  • I have the newest version running on my G-Box Q. My Harmony Remote will not work anything but my wireless keyboard will work. I would like to be able to use my Harmony. Any help would be great. I have looked up on how to add remotes but it says to add it to /storage/.config/. Problem is I can't find that folder when looking on LibreElec with my mac.


  • LE-8.0.1 release is out enjoy!


    Fantastic, Thanks a lot Demetris for your work towards keeping Amlogic S802 still relevant


    I had been using 7.0.2 S82 build from Drieschel on a MX-III 2GB and everything was working fine including wifi, Bluetooth and IR Remote


    I updated the MX-III with LibreELEC-S802.arm-8.0.1a-S82 from your release and have run into issues
    Everything but two devices seem to be working fine
    The things not working are
    1. Bluetooth
    2. IR Remote
    As both input devices are not working, I can't use the device without plugging in a USB mouse/keyboard.


    Here is the dmesg output from 7.0.2 which shows the BT recognized correctly, don't know where IR is recognized but it sure works nicely.

    And here is the dmesg output from your 8.0.1 build

    Can you please take a look and advise what I am doing wrong. Thanks

    Perfect, the remote.conf file fixed the issue with the infrared remote. Thanks for that
    Now if Demetris can take a look at the Bluetooth issue then it will be 100%
