  • LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.2.3-S82.img.gz is what I run on my MX-III 2GB device S802 CPU AP6330 Wifi+BT

  • Hello everyone, I have a minix x8-Hp box and am having some issues getting the Libreelec to run. I have read a large amount of the 88 pages of posts and I thought I had it down but I am a newbie with libreelec . I have 2 of these boxes one rooted to 5.1.1 but would like to try this solution on the other booting from SD card with android still accessible.

    I flashed my box with the Remix115k4.zip

    android started let updates happen.

    Unplugged Box and removed SD card with Remix on it

    put LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.2.2-X8H-PLUS.img.gz to SD card using libreelecSD creator (on OS X)

    added Nocompat.zip to SD

    inserted SD card , plugged in box, held power button down for 6secs.

    Blue light flashed on and off nothing on screen.

    Did I do something wrong?


    also tried toothpick boot same results.


    thank you for the work to keep these boxes working .

  • I have a Matricom Q2 2GB and everything I read seems I should be looking for an S812 arm which could be the M8S or MIII or MIII Plus.....to no luck I cannot get this on an SD CARD and have it update to LibreELEC.


    I have tried so many img files and I don't want to brick this thing.

    I did not have this much trouble a few years ago with my MX2.


    Any help you can provide. I'm completely lost now on where to start.

    2 questions Dimitris, regarding an "old" S802 1GB box.

    Fully works with your MXIII-1G rom variant, but:


    1.

    I have always ONLY been able to update with the tar file (on a fresh install, i must first flash an old openelec build through recovery, and then update with the tar).

    Since your first release, if i boot with the img burnt on an SD card, gives me "corrupted file system detected" and if i let it do the repair, says "system is beyond repair bla-bla-bla". I even flashed the Remix-115k4.zip, android works, but your img will not get past the repair.


    2.

    I have been trying to boot armbian on it, but Balbes150's images probably do not support this box. Tried sd, usb, newer and older dtb's for this box, nothing, black screen for hours.

    Any pointers? Thanks.

  • Hi All,


    This is the exact description of the box i own.

    MXIII-G S812 2GB/16GB Android 5.1 1000M LAN Quad Core 4K x 2K H.265 Decoding 2.4G/5G WiFi Bluetooth 4.0 Kodi XBMC TV Box Android Mini PC


    Please suggest the best image.


    TIA

  • I think the best image for that box would be

    LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.2.3-MXIII-PLUS.img.gz

  • Hi gujal,


    Installed the suggested img in SD card.

    I used the libreelec-usb-cd creator tool.

    After that toothpick method.

    I am getting this error and long boot and no progress ...


    "libreelec a start job is running for load kernel modules"


    Please suggest
