libreELEC repo “Could not connect to repository”
i guess i need to build the addons for LE9.1 as devices running Linux 3.10 aren't supported anymore
As mentioned I did try the “Final” image on 2 X8H+ but both kept giving the file system error on install. Not sure what the issue is there.
can you try the 17.6 image and let me know which one boots (see #1). Maybe the x8hp dtb's story is back.
and btw what's your firmware version?
Confused end user here,
hoping to update 2 Minix X8H Plus boxes to LibreELEC 9 with Kodi 18.1.
i suggest to use the 18 final x8h-plus image.
the 18.1 image is still a work in progress. i hope to solve it this week-end.
My question is about the Kodi power menu: "Boot from internal(boot to andoid)" just boots the thing back to the SD-card.
Is that because it's the finless bootloader instead of the Minix one?
no i don't think so, it was the same with the minix bootloader.
The reboot script must be reviewed.
there was also a menu item to launch the "installtointernal" script.
it's something that may be reintroduce if needed
1# when I stop a video all system crash, I need to unplug/replug alim to restart.
which log I need to paste for help you ?
2# when I try to installtointernal :
I've tried FINAL version too, installtointernal works but crash on video stop.
1# you need to activate "adjust refresh rate" and define a white list in kodi
2# my bad , it's a recurring missing +x rights. something that i regularly miss to commit in git
cannot reproduce the build working without adjust refresh rate.
i give up.
so fixed until now :
- manual ip
- shutdown (with new bootloader)
i need a break and then i will update to 18.1 or 18.2 if it's avail.
Another X8h-Plus(Minix firmware 5.1), Shutdown works but I need to remove power plug before I can turn it back on. LE9 kodi 18(X8-H_Plus.arm-9.0-devel-20190202113853-8798984)
i guess i need to patch also the bootloader.
i will post it soon.
need feedback x8hp users.
If your box is flashed with the Finless lollipop rom or the Minix, does it shutdown with the LE9 kodi 18 img?
need to reproduce a kodi 18 image able to shutdown the minix...first and when it's ok i will update the thing
finless splashscreen has too much flair for you??
the latest Minix firmware (kitkat) with the bootloader taken from finless firmware : minix_x8_x8plus_x8_h_newbootloader_FW9
tested ok and by the way no need to rename anymore "boot_autoscript" to "boot.scr" to be able to boot from SD.
rebuilding a 18.1 image......
tested on x8-h with the kodi 18 final image and indeed the shutdown works as expected.
finless rom is based on the probox ex2 firmware so it's a different bootloader.
no comment on the finless splashscreen. i will mod the latest minix firmware with finless bootloader files.
big tks Klaver7 , ive got now a good basis.
feedbacks are really important and not just what isn't working.
that is exciting. i also have finless installed and only have two issues:
sometimes the box freezes when stopping a video
I'm ready to test if wifi is added
it will be added.
Firmware = Finless lollipop rom 1-0 for the X8h(it works fine on the x8 Plus) , dont know if I can post the link here but I am sure that you know to find it if needed. True Power off = with the kodi power menu or remote control(original) I can shut the box down. So there is no standby or sleep. To turn the box back on I just punch the button on the box and voila it start back up. No need to remove power-plug at any time!
well well well..
I got it.
Thanks a lot for the feedback.
It looks promising.
this did the job. Worked perfectly.

my bad , you're right. I always forget the read-only part.
