[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.2 for S905/S905X

  • Freaky69


    Yes, but you have to realize that Leia builds are currently pre-alpha. They can be unstable and "high-maintenance".

    Some boxes need to have new remote configurations made for them, for example.

    You also must update the DTB when you upgrade to Leia, and I don't know if you can later downgrade. You couldn't downgrade when going from LE7 to LE8.

    So if you want to try it, first create a backup of your current setup, so that you can go back to it later if needed.

  • Your box has a NAND chip (meaning not eMMC) and there is a bug in Amlogic bootloader that prevents repartitioning the drive. You can try using a standard device tree but if it doesn't work, you're out of lack and have to run LE from SD card.

    Thanks. Will try one of the standard device trees and post my results for anyone else with the same problem. So far I can confirm that the p201.dtb works (IR & Ethernet) booting from internal, but more testing is required (WiFi).

  • kszaq Is there any way to clear saved network settings through ssh?


    Because when trying to connect to any WiFi network for the first time, I keep getting an "Invalid Arguments" error or an "Operation Timout" error if its SSID is hidden. Scanning for networks work but from my experience with my other devices, I found out that if I turned the "Connect Automatically" option off under the network's settings, I'd got the "Invalid Arguments" error when connecting to other Networks. So I'd like to just clear everything and see if that fixes it.


    And gxbb_p200_1G_100M_RealtekWiFi.dtb works when booting from NAND.

    What happens if you don’t hide the SSID? It’s serves no purpose hiding it anyway.

    I get the "Invalid Arguments" error. I hide my 2.4Ghz and broadcast my 5Ghz.

  • kszaq what log/files do you need?

  • hillz 8.2 has reached the end of it's life, all developers have moved on to focusing on 9.0, the differences between 8.2 and 9.0 have grown a considerable amount now that it would be impractical and very time consuming to backport changes.

  • Hi people,

    Does anyone uses Seagate Personal Cloud wih your Libreelec Kodi? Is it simple to use and configure with kodi? Can i watch/stream movie files ( 4k included ) without any problem using a 100mb network?

    Sorry to bother you but I´m inclined to buy this NAS … I just pretend to use it to keep my movies/series and be able to see them with my Libreelec Kodi (Mecool) so I need to know if it will be a good solution for me …

  • 100Mbps will be OK with some content, and it will not be enough with other content.

    So the 'general' answer is no, 100Mbps is not enough for reliable streaming of "4K movies/series".

  • To remove all network settings: rm -rf /storage/.cache/connman

    Thanks.

  • Can anyone confirm this build works with the onboard wired gigabit ethernet card on S905D boxes? I have the Mecool Ki Pro. Might be the only S905d box out there. Everything else works perfectly, get 250mbits on iperf with the 5GHz onboard wifi so it's not a huge issue regardless. I get no link detected with wired.


    Full disclosure it's a lazy question. Box is in constant use tbh haven't booted back into Android to confirm whether the onboard card actually works.

  • Booted into Android there. The onboard does work. Checking iperf I'm getting 800mbps so it is syncing at gigabit speeds. Mac decode gives no answers. Neither do any apps I've tried.


    Can anyone point me in the direction of querying Android via terminal emulator or Linux (Libreelec) so I can find out exactly what this card is in order to find a driver for it?


    Thanks.
