i guess kodi 18.9 for Minix X8 is possible but we need to stay to with LE9 which was the latest supported LE version for our amlogic box.
i have to admit that i'm using now an apple tv box and it does wat i need.
Trying to put LibreELEC-X8-H_Plus.arm-LE9-Kodi_18.6 onto a X8H-Plus. Image written okay, renamed boot.scr.
When booting I get to recovery with "Cannot load volume /misc!" at the bottom - but looking at the .img contents I don't see this...
I actually see I posted back in Jan about this, and one suggestion was to unplug the remote which I did with no luck.
when you boot with the reset switch pressed, it will not go to the Android recovery process.
In fact you won't notice anything except that your box will boot "LibreElec" in place of Android.
i guess there's something wrong with the method you follow.
Be sure to burn the image with the LibreElec usb SD creator, press the reset switch a few seconds and release it.
edit : i will my images to kodi 18.9, it's the final leia version if i'm not wrong.
I installed your libreelec-x8-h_series.arm-8.2rc-kodi_17.6-final.img.gz on my ENY M8S (S812, n200, 2G/8G, AP6330). It works perfect except wifi/bluetooth and 1GB ram. I tried your libreelec 9 image but I failed boot. Can I use your build in the future? Thank you!
with the right dtb, it will works.
i will check
Hi, after installing libreelec and running the kodi ... when I start the movie it runs smoothly .... but after trying to jump or stop it freezes. Any advice? I tried versions 18.3 and 18.6..the same problem. I tried using the ares wizard to change the cache did not help
you need to play with the "whitelist" and activate the "adjust refresh".
Google is your friend to find how to set it up
Not sure anyone experiences this.
Currently i am using LibreELEC-X8-X8H.arm-LE9-Kodi_18.3.img.
Minix-X8H is running two HDD (Toshiba 2TB 3.5' HDD and Toshiba 1TB 2.5' HDD)
However, there is a issues with 1TB 2.5" HDD, thus i have replaced with WD My Passport 2TB 2.5" HDD formatted in NTFS format using Windows 10 Pro. Here is the result of troubleshooting
1. Connect Toshiba 2TB HDD and WD 2TB 2.5" HDD = LibreELEC failed to boot-up
2. Connect Toshiba 2TB HDD, upon successful LibreELEC boot-up
Then connect WD 2TB HDD = Kodi detected the HDD and able play video
Try reboot = LibreELEC failed to boot-up
3. Connect WD 2TB HDD only = Licbreelec fail to boot-up
Base on the diagnostic above, i could more or less conclude that whenever WD 2TB HDD that causing the problem. Just couldn't figure out the issues.
May i know what could went wrong?
Potentially Minix (Hardware) or LibreELEC doesn't support the storage, previously i was running combined storage of 3TB.
Seeking help, thank in advance.
the Minix boots with a 3TB storage already connected to the usb port or you boot the Minix and then you attach the 3 TB storage?
Friend there is the possibility to update the kodi to version 18.6
Do your sources for building S905D have kodi and 18.6 ARCH=aarch64?
check the branch 18.6 but i would take a look into CoreElec for s905xx device running on linux 3.14
Hi, I have a Minix NEO X8H. I tried to connect it to the pc via cable and upgrade to Lollipop ..... the device did not connect at all ... so I decided to try Libreelec and found a procedure on this forum how to do it using an sd card ... let me try what I'm trying to not boot at all ..... the only time I got a little further was an attempt to boot from sd with the version of Krypton but it still turned out like this ... Can anyone please advise me?
There's no Lollipop image for the X8-H. Lollipop image is only for the X8H-PLUS.
It's the first time i see that kind of logging.
If booting from SD is successful, you will have messages about formatting the SD.
boot the minix while holding reset switch for 5 -6 sec (the bootloader will be patched) =
"Turn off your Minix X8-H completely and insert the SD card in the side slot.
Then with a paperclip press the little reset button on the back of your device and keep it pressed while turning on the device. When you see the Minix logo appear, release the paperclip from the reset button and wait."
Patching the bootloader is bit tricky.
I have a Minix X8H and followed instructions on the first post of the thread to install libreelec. I used the 18.6 image in the downloads section. However during the startup, the minix freezes in the screen which show minix logo. Waited close to 15 minutes and nothing changes. Is this image stable? And are the instructions given in the first page still up to date?
Did you patch the minix bootloader?
if successful, it will boot from the SD card.
how to patch the minix bootloader :
- burn the GZ img to a SD (using LibreElec-usb-sd creator)
- browse the SD and rename "boot_autoscript" to "boot.scr"
- insert the SD in the minix
- boot the minix while holding reset switch for 5 -6 sec (the bootloader will be patched)
- let Libreelec boots
no it was to show that the first link has the ap 6330 wifi chip.
the first link was with a ap6330 like the one on your pic
i've try the 6234 and then the 6181 because there were also a possible wifi chip for the MXIII.....
behavior of my set (with CEC enabled):
Remote box power-off => TV shut down
If i power up the TV and select the box input => the box will start up
i never use the remote power-on of the box or power-on button of the box .
by the way , my box has been reflashed with the custom firmware (see #1).
and you're right , the light works contrary but ... it's not critical... annoying but not critical
it works for me but lightly.
