    These builds are based on the latest LibreELEC 9 release.

    *****update*****


    18.3 avail :

    • Mac Address fixed (tks Chewitt for the hint)
    • some patches taken from Chewitt amlogic-master
    • X8-HP : dtb ethernet part reverted


    *****update*****


    18.2 avail


    *****update*****


    18.1 avail :

    • shutdown fixed
    • installtointernal execute right fixed
    • static ip address fixed for utp lan
    • freeze when no adjust refresh rate activated => fixed
    • whitelist not needed anymore (kodi 18.1 feature)

    to be able to shutdown , you need to reflash the box

    My Files

    It has been tested on the X8-H with success.


    to get the best of it :

    • you need a tv supporting 24hz/24p and you need to set (in Kodi) "adjust refresh rate" (and have to define a "whitelist": not required anymore)
    • about the audio, you will need to try and find the right setting.It depends your tv, amps,.. (with my denon i've been more successful with Amlogic M8-analog but again there're no general rules)


    Remarks :

    • some users have been able to boot from SD after having reflashed the Minix firmware. (again no general rules, sometimes it depends SD cards, firmware,..
    • patching the bootloader may be also tricky

    Community tips and tricks :


    x8-x8h

    x8h-plus

    tar/gz : My Files


    not working :

    • analog audio via mini-jack

    working :

    • installtointernal
    • auto frame rate switching
    • hdmi spdif passthrough
    • Minix IR remote
    • etc

    how to patch the minix bootloader :

    • burn the GZ img to a SD
    • 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 and configure ssh, etc
    • restore your cfg if needed

    how to "installtointernal" :

    • ssh the box and type "installtointernal", follow the instructions
    • remove the SD of the box, reboot and enjoy.

    The builds

    They're really specific to Minix X8/X8-H/X8-HP.

    Means only dtb's for these devices are included.

    ps: i just mod/adapt things, i don't pretend to be a dev


    remote.conf : Create remote.conf from scratch


    kodi 17.6

    for the X8-HP users only : test the LibreELEC-X8-H_Series image first, if it doesn't boot from SD , use the LibreELEC-X8-H_PlusGen1

    No need to repatch the bootloader if you have already try one of my LE8.9.xx image.

    Hi,


    can a Minix X8H-plus user try the wifi with this one :LibreELEC-S812.LAN1000updX8HP.arm-17

    LibreELEC-S812.LAN1000updX8HP.arm-17.3



    I've added extra wifi firmwares.


    I've tested this build on my X8-H and it haven't broken something : everything works as usual. (except 4K (but the X8-H has limited support/no support) and X265 (not supported by the X8-H))



    Again : it's a tar file.

    to update your box, the ARCH has to be S812.arm. if it's not the case, you have to use the .nocompat trick.

    Hi,


    i've "tweak" the last LIBREELEC-lan1000 kodi 17.3 to get back the lan on the MINIX X8-H.

    ?j8wr7ls9gzzgtwa


    it's a tar file so you know how to handle it.


    @balbes150 : on the last S812lan1000, S812/filesystem/usr/lib/modules-load.d/am_net8218.conf is missing.

    if this module is not loaded, the MINIX X8-H users didn't get LAN.


    ps : i'm a "windows boy", i tweak for fun , i've very limited knowledge of linux things.

    use the "tar" at your own risk


    freq switch ok, spdif ok, lan ok , wifi ok , 4k-x265 not ok
