MiniM8sPro S905 2gb/8gb
I would say this has
fixed the boot up freezing after over 25 re boots and power off the box only froze 4 times.
A cold boot always booted back up.
I would probably call this a Fairyfly and not a Bug
Edit: I had 3 freezes in a row from power on. One from cold boot.
I would say the Fairyfly might be a Bug
Three power off and then on went fine after that.
EDIT: I resumed my on off reboot testing and spent 40 Minutes just re booting and powering off with the remote and no Freezing after about 80 on off and reboots. YES 80 TIMES BEFORE I GOT THE FREEZE.
I cold booted and it booted fine.
Did 3 more without a problem.
I think i'm done for now. This is either fixed or it is a bug. I'm not so sure after what i have gone through.
My box did this once when re booting, See screenshot.
EDIT: This is getting stranger by the minute.
I just had a friend who has the identical box. Same hardware same time purchased together and all identical LE updates performed have always been the same results EXCEPT this one.
He dropped his box off to me and i updated it from 19th November Dev build. Exactly what i did with my box.
The 19th Dev Build boots up perfect on my and his box.
I have just spent over half an hour trying to get his identical MiniM8sPro S905 2gb/8gb to boot with some consistency or at least the same consistency as my identical box.
His box would be lucky to re boot 1 out of 5 attempts. It just freezes on Boot up animation. Really bad results. After half an hour of trying we gave up. It just freezes.
I then updated using the 19th November Dev build with 6th November device tree and rebooted after update and no problems.
Works perfect with this version.
I then created a Fresh SD Card 12th December version with 9th December Device tree and toothpicked.
Booted up first time after install. After that it was all the same behaviour as internal install on his box.
Two of the same identical boxes with two different behaviours with the same LE Version.
I think I'm done for now.
Last EDIT I tried one last time using #57 method to install DTB manually.

Still box kept freezing on boot animation.
So that did not work either.
The signature is that if you reboot, occasionally the driver will not start; you must (effectively) stop & restart the driver by disable/re-enable of the WiFi in the LE Settings - so you are saying this happens also with the Qualcomm driver used in your TX5? (it apparently uses the AP6255)
The good news is it is, at worst, a 'nuisance' rather than a show-stopper, where all you have to do is toggle the WiFi;
Weird one though if indeed also happening with other driver
See link regarding my box and the issues with Chinese Boxes using different Hardware on a box with a Generic Brand Name.
I keep banging on about members not disclosing their chips as S905 OR S905X , as a model is less important (although it should be disclosed)
than the hardware.
I hope this eventually gets through to members.
