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

  • If you running any version of openelec or libreelec on SD I think you just put new image to .update folder


    Toothpick method needs only first time install that I know

    I guess the worst thing that can happen is that the card doesn't boot. I don't see any aml_autoscript files, so if booting for the first time what files are needed?

    If you download LibreELEC develop version and unzip file you can see factory_update_param.aml with LibreELEC-S8X2.default.arm-7.0-devel-update.zip 2 files. These files put to SD with formatted FAT32 and then using toothpick method you can install libreelec to nand. This method same as your android firmware update progress, so if your device gone to brick you can unbrick it easily. I don't know how do you understand that I say. Cause I speak English likes Korean cause I'm Korean :)

  • For power on & suspend issue go fetch and flash from your manufacturer the newest bootloader i can do nothing about it!

    Please use S82 image that works for your M8S 100% with 2gb ram!

    Hi Demetris,

    I've updated to your LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.0.2a-X8H-PLUS.tar on my Minix x8h plus, and I've also had the same power-on,suspend issues.

    Tried also a few other updates from others, but for now I'm using LibreELEC-Amlogic.arm-M8SPlus-8.0.2.tar from Index of /image/LE8/arm/8.0.2 - and that works just fine. Powers off, reboots, suspends just fine.


    Really liked that your image thus had wifi recognized and bluetooth too!

    Can I help debug?

    Thanks!

    I would rather get this running on an SD card than NAND. The box has been flashed with balbes150's aml_autoscript and I read a post somewhere on this forum that it seems to work with Demetris's builds. Might be safer than installing to NAND. Thanks for your help.

  • thats interesting will get you an image to test then

  • I tried S82 image again, but it doesn't work. Stopping M8S logo forever. I did rollback it LibreELEC-S8X2.default.arm-7.0-devel-20170124000114-r23703-ge207b78.zip and after LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.0.2a-MXIII-1G.img.gz your image. I did it all just for 5 minuets :)

    Since at this moment I do not want to write the LibreELEC-S8X2.default.arm-7.0-devel-20170124000114-r23703-ge207b78.zip to NAND, I have tried booting with the LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.0.2a-MXIII-1G.img.gz from an SD card (I have used the toothpick with balbes150 image in the past so my M8S can boot from an SD card)


    The M8S has started booting from the SD card and has detected a corrupted filesystem:


    Filesystem corruption has been detected!

    to prevent an automatic repair attempt continuing,

    press any key or power off your system within the next 120 seconds


    after two minutes it has started a recovery attempt and faild:

    I have tried booting with the same image from a USB stick but the M8S didn't detect the USB and skipped to android boot.


    Is there any clue/solution for making this box (ENY M8S) boot from an SD card wit Demetris images ?

  • I use an S812 bootloader for my S82 box and boots ok for me.

  • I tried balbes150's image too. balbes150's image works fine to power on/suspend and can install on SD card. But I couldn't install tvheadend 4.2 and wifi+bluetooth doesn't work for me. So I looked for lots of images finaly I use Demetir's image, it can't install independetly but I satisfied over all. If I can mix balbes150's image and Demetris image it'll be the most perfect image but I can't. I know only windows and command prompt not linux :(

    If I would be able to install any of balbes150 images on an SD card in the ENY M8S box, I pesume that I would be able to update it with Demetris MXIII-1G image and test it !


    I could install balbes150 LibreELEC-S812.LAN_100.arm-17.3.img.gz on another M8S box that I have (a clone with a BCM4330X wifi) and as you mentioned tvheadend42 is not working with this build (wifi is not so important for me).


    Could you install any of balbes150 images on an SD card with the ENY M8S box ? Can you say which specific image ? I have tried several images and all failed.

  • Hi.

    You have to config the kernel, there is an extra element in the command line. If it is clear, the system will run on any medium. By the way, the initialization file is already desired setting.


    LibreELEC.tv/linux.arm.conf at le-8.0 · S802-LE/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub


    del

    BOOT_IMAGE=/dev/boot boot=/dev/system disk=/dev/data


    LibreELEC.tv/platform_init at le-8.0 · S802-LE/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub



    By the way, You can use one image for all versions, they are perfectly combined (they have indexes to select dtb data, nearly all different, so do not interfere with each other when running).

    p.s.

    If You don't mind, I propose to combine our expertise for the Assembly LE for S812 and make You the main developer. As I plan to focus on creating a full system LinuxDesktop+Kodi).

    When I install balbes150's image I used SD card and USB memory both.

    Because I met blabla 120 seconds error display.


    1. Any balbes150's M8S LAN1000 image burn to SD and USB both of all

    2. Using toothpick method with SD card and s805 script works then you can see blabla 120 seconds error.

    3. Do same process above with USB memory (maybe outside one of two usb ports)

    4. You can install balbes150's image to USB memory! Done!


    but after balbes150's image install, I can't use .update folder Demetris's image. However you can use update folder

    same developer's image.

  • I love your S812 armbian! Glad to meet you here! :)

  • I have tested to compine before but i faced lan issues from 1gb vs 100Mbit

    So you want me to delete that cmd line in kernel config that defines boot flags and add to init those changes? So to be clear i understand what you are saying.

  • So you want me to delete that cmd line in kernel config that defines boot flags and add to init those changes? So to be clear i understand what you are saying.

    Only need to delete from config file the kernel. Need not be added. In the second link on platform_ini I showed that these data already have in this file (line 80).


    I have tested to compine before but i faced lan issues from 1gb vs 100Mbit

    These data are compatible. You can collect one image for these devices.

    Under this key, u-boot selects from multifile the desired option and uses it.

    These two files together cannot be used. They have the same index. For such models will have to collect different images.

    By the way, if You're interested, I would still recommend to update the system multi-boot and go to a new format. In the new format multi-boot, you can use any of the system on external media. Add ability to install to internal memory (eMMC\NAND) with one push of a button on the remote control .

  • hi

    I'm trying to install this on a s802 m8 box

    ive downloaded the file LibreELEC-S802.M8.arm-8.0.RC4.img.gz and used win32diskimager to write an sd card.

    when I insert the sd and boot the box I get the android system recovery console, none of the options will enable me to run the files on the sdcard


    can anyone assist please?


    ok I have advanced now


    if I boot the box with said sd card in I get a screen saying


    "filesystem corruption has been detected

    to prevent an automatic repair attempt continuing

    press any key or power off your system within the next 120seconds"


    if I leave it I get a report back

    perhaps I should have mentioned I had openelec on this before

  • Hey Demetris, gret work.

    I have had amlogic.ru 7.0.2 (M8S) build on my S812 MAtricom Gbox Q2 for a while and has always worked great but work has stalled so its upgrade time. I tried your LibreELEC-S8X2.M8S-PLUS.arm-8.0.2 build and everything went through fine including internet connection however my remote will not work.

    I then tried LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.0.2a-MXIII-PLUS and after reboot my device is now stuck on the amlogic chip screen so I obviously installed wrong version. Which version should i use and how can i install now i dont have samba access due to kodi failing to start?

    Please help
