[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.2 for S905/S905X

  • Can you make a exemple for me?

    - Box Android Mini M8S II (Amlogic S905X, 2GB RAM, 8GB ROM)
    - Ugreen USB Ethernet Adapter Usb 3.0 2.0 [ASIX AX88179 Chipset]
    - LibreELEC 8.2 (Nougat Kernel) builds aimed at devices based on Amlogic S905/S905X SoC.

  • Hello..


    Can anyone help setup the new Samba on LibreELEC?


    With the old one it was easy since you only need a simple .conf file.


    But the new one is more difficult.


    Had anyone setup new Samba with username and password?


    Thank you.

  • On OSX , it connects as a guest and no password is needed.:cool:

    Minix Neo U1, S905 chipset, 2GB/16GB, Dual Boot Libreelec / Android 5.1 lollipop, Samsung UHS-1 32GB Micro SDHC Memory card

  • i received today one mecool m8s pro 2gb/16gb whats the best way to boot libreelec on it?


    there's no reset button.... i even look at AV

    there's no power button

    the zip method file also had no results


    any ideas? or should i try terminal emulator or adb as last options?

  • There is a reset hole under the front bottom. However, my reset button was broken on my new Mecool M8S pro.


    If the reset hole doesn't work, use the "bootcard maker". Magendanz explains how to install his mod for the TV OS, but that method works for installing LibreELEC onto a microSD card, when the reset button does not work. I have installed LibreELEC, Ubuntu 16.04, and his mod using that method, with a non-functioning reset button.

  • uhhhhmmmm I don't know how to 5) "run the USB creator" ...... 😞 Clearly LibreElec is over my head and i should stick to using the Android Kodi that will work on my Mecool M8S Pro Plus. Thank you for trying to help a noob! 😬

  • Need help. Wifi does not display any network.


    I am using a KI PRO, I have performed the following steps to install the LE


    First I downloaded the version LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.0-8.0.2c-I.img.gz (afl1), I recorded it on the card. Along with the device tree (gxl_p230_k1_pro.dtb)


    Then I upgraded to the version LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.2-8.1.7.tar - Copying to update folder. Along with the device tree (gxl_p230_k1_pro.dtb).


    Then I upgraded to LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.2-8.1.8.tar - Copying to update folder. Along with the device tree (gxl_p230_k1_pro.dtb).


    In none of the versions was my wifi displayed, every process was via cable error.


    I will post a LOG of the LE when activating the wifi.

    You run the USB creator app on your computer, not your meecool device.... In fact, you do steps 1-8 on your computer

  • Copy the .tar file and the dtb into the .update folder and reboot.

    Thanks! I installed 8.0.2e some time ago, but at that time I didn't need (at least I thought so) any dtb file. I tried searching for it, but I'm not sure which dtb file exactly I need for running Libreelec on an Odroid C2, would be great if someone could give me a hint :)

    when you say theres a reset hole under the front bottom i think you are trying to say there's a hole under the led position because m8s pro doesn't have any button outside!


    But i find a button hidden inside thats visible at the right side of the led! is this the bottom?

    That's the BUTTON ;) yes. A bit on the right of the middle. A paper clip works wonders

    strange... if i press that button without sd card inserted i boot into recovery method but if i plug the sd card and turn on while pressing the button it keeps on mecool log and doesn't do anything!!!!

    You forgot to put a correct device tree on SD card. M8S Pro+ uses an odd board name and default device tree doesn't work.

    You said you have the Pro (Amlogic S912), do you mean you have the Pro PLUS (Amlogic S905x)??

  • Someone has a way to my problem. I need the wifi
