I didn't replace aml_autoscript, I just set up the SD card as always, added the proper .img file for it, and then used toothpick to boot it the one time.
7.0.2.006 fails to load on nexbox a95x s905. followed instructions and replaced the dtb.img and aml_autoscript.
7.0.2.005 works fine
SD or NAND? I have it running right now (actually am watching from it as I type this) from SD.
Now that this has been mentioned, I also rolled back to a previous version of MySQL Server and it seemed to work. Otherwise, nothing worked to fix my issue with Movies (which sounds like the same issue) which would never finish updating the local Kodi library to be the same setup as TV Shows. Did this on all my devices (Windows, LibreELEC, SPMC)
Regarding the source scanning I was not successful. I did everything you said, even activated NFS on that directory to try that way, but it stays the same: It always scans the first file/movie and then stops and goes directly to cleaning. :\
How is your media organized? Is it organized in folders? I use TinyMediaManager to set things up so it goes by using the same scraper as Kodi.
I had it all set up and working properly before (using local SD as storage for cached items) before I went to the MySQL database setup. I had the same problem, where I removed and cleaned up the database, removing all the entries. When I added the same share back (NFS), it didn't add the movies back but TV Shows were no problem.
Thanks, I have set in Android the new IP, but in LibreELEC it
is still the old one although rebooting. Or do I have to do the
toothpick thing again? How to find those LibreELEC settings,
you spoke of?
Yes, for the folder I set the usual thing: movies and scraping
with the moviedb or universal scraper. Both should do the
work, but it does not work. TV series worked good.
Settings -> LibreELEC settings -> Network. There, you can turn off the wireless network.
Settings -> LibreELEC settings -> Connections. There, you can click on the Wired connection, then select Edit -> IPv4 -> IP Address
Method to edit the IP
As for the library, I had that as well when I was moving to MySQL. I removed and added all the sources again. Try removing the sources.xml file, then removing the Movies file location, restarting LibreELEC, then adding it back again.
Are you sure you don't need something like this? The OTT MXQ Pro has an AV slot, just not your traditional RCA AV setup
Sadly, I'm one of those that have a 720p tv still. I even have a 480p plasma.
There are many 32" tv's that are 720p, and some smaller tv's are also 720p.
I'm thinking there is something wrong with your HDMI port.
Under "installation" I see two parts: SD and NAND. I guess, I just have to do the
SD part, right?
Yes, you would do the SD part, though there is a bit more work if the recovery toothpick method doesn't work. Nothing hard but try the toothpick recovery first and post back if any issues. I had no problem with my A95X s905 but did on my OTT TV MXQ Pro 4k box.
Can you explain what zip he or you would have selected - was it from the list of files that were listed when you hit the select button? Or a Kodi apk that you used on a usb stick? Thanks
I just selected any random zip that was found in the kodi add-ons folder on the local storage, not from SD memory or USB.
I have finally found some time to try the SD install for 7.0.2.005 and I have not been able to get LE to boot.
My MXQ Pro+ is running OE 6.95.3 from SD with balbes150's S905_autoscript. I am also running a Tronsmart Meta rom compiled by sd-robots. The original firmware was terrible. OE runs pretty well with no boot issues.
This box has no reset switch in the AV hole, so I can't use that method. The firmware does not offer a reboot to recovery option, so I tried Quick Boot, which boots me into TWRP. I replaced the original MBOX recovery with TWRP so that I could flash sd-robots/Tronsmart Meta rom.
I tried ADB, adb reboot recovery, the box booted into TWRP.
I tried ADB, adb reboot recovery, with a USB with s905_autoscript and SD card with 7.0.2.005 extracted onto it - booted into TWRP.
I tried the USB/SD combo with the S905_autoscript on the USB stick - USB OTG port, booted at the same time as the SD card - the first time it booted into Android and then went through an 18 app optimization then Andoid started. I rebooted and the box went straight to Android.
The S905_autoscript is on both the USB and SD cards when booted - not sure if this was correct.
I would appreciate any help/advice on how to get LE to boot. I can't think of anything else to try.
JonSnow tried it by using the update and backup app in android, then selecting update and when it searched for zip files, selecting a zip from the kodi add-ins. When it rebooted, it executed the script on the SD card to be able to boot from SD and load LibreElec. I did the same thing on my MXQ Pro 4k as I was also stuck in your situation and it worked.
I'm just hoping Kszaq is able to fix the memory problems , everything else i know will eventually get addressed by him or other devs.
Just leaving the box on for 2 days my MXIII has already used 60% ram, same config on a Rpi2 and ram sits at 15% when idle the MXQ would have frozen by now.
My uptime is 11 days, 20h and I'm at 52% memory used (389MB out of 742MB). Running 7.0.2.003 on A95X with S905 and 1GB RAM.
Hey everyone... new to this forum! I came here through a link from the amlinuxmedia.com which was from an openelec thread for my mxq pro 4k box which i have openelec installed. Although the functionality of it works pretty good, i have been experiencing freezing from time to time, especially when quickly navigating through movie and show menues and especiay through 3rd party addon menus. Im reading this probably has more to do with memory usage issues.
Now a friend also has had some experience with libre and recommended it as he says that its more routinely developed so i thought id give this a shot.
With all of this asaid, i tried the SD card method and was unable to as there is no "toothpick" method availabe for my box and the only way to reboot into recovery is through ADB. However, when I do this, it goes into that android recovery screen and doesnt "see" or read any filed contained within the card. There some mention on this thread about using BACKUP&RESTORE app, but i dont seem to have this? Am i missing something?
Any help would be infinitely appreciated!
Did you look in the My Apps section in Android? It should be there. Mine was called Update and Backup. I have the same mxq pro 4k v1 box as you and had to use the Update and Backup app to get it to load the script. I could probably try to find the apk for it if you need it.
Welcome back and thanks for all your hard work on this. I've based my purchases on these LE builds that you provide (mk808b+, A95X s905, MXQ Pro 4k S905), just to give you an indication of how appreciated your work is.
wtf, because of the user report about the MiniM8S II I ordered one. now I'm not able to use libreelec? any chance the S905x will get a ported libreelec?
There's always a chance, and you just have to be patient. Once a dev gets an s905x box, I'm sure they would want to get LE running on it as well. There is always the option, if you are that desperate, to provide an s905x box to a dev and they would surely oblige.
Use any zip file, your just tricking the box to boot into recovery to excute the aml script, so it launches LE from the SD Card. When i launched the UPDATE&BACKUP app it scanned for zip files it thought where updates, they just happen to be Kodi addons zip files. I just choose the first one in the list it found and started the update. Once the box rebooted and started to go into recovery it excuted Kszaq script instead of flashing the zip that was selected, which would have failed in any event.
I suspect you can enable developer options in Android and reboot to recovery via adb over your lan, which would be safer and i wasn't thinking. The above seemed easier and I have the tools to unbrick these boxes so it was worth a shot.
Thanks for that! I tried using ADB reboot recovery wirelessly and while it did reboot to recovery, it never loaded the files from the SD Card nor executed the script. With this odd method, it did , and it didn't touch android underneath. Saved me from buying another box!
I just got Nexbox A95X that comes with S905X. I notice from the first post that this chip is not confirmed to work with these images. Hopefully, I wish it can be ported someday.
But my problem is that this box doesn't seem to have reset button inside av hole. I tried to push with toothpick but it seems there is nothing in there. Is this just me or is it really has no reset button? Very weird though.
Anyway the box looks nice and very small but kodi on android can't change refresh rate which is very disappointing for me.
My A95x that came with just the S905 has the working reset button inside the AV hole. Did you look into the hole to see if the reset button is there?
just got the mini mxiii and having trouble with the toothpick method, anyone have any ideas? I'm not ready to flash on the NAND on this box and adb does not work since it isnt rooted.
EDIT: Went to backup&update and used a random kodi addon zip then proceeded to update the box and bam LE booted from SD. The kodi addons zip where on the NAND after lauching kodi within Android. I think the reset button is broken on this box as well.
Also the box has s905 revision C processor.
What are you trying to do with ADB? you don't need root to use ADB (if you're trying to use adb boot recovery command over wifi), you just need to enable developer options which should be done by hitting the build number 5 times.
You can install using the backup and upgrade thats the only way it worked for me but to reboot into recovery with android use adb and type in reboot recovery. Need to be rooted to use ad b.
As for the burning tool no you do not need recover. All i have to do is start the app on my computer load the image and click start, then plug in the usb cable into the box. You don't need power the usb port will power the box during flash.
Does this work in LE? use USB port 4 with USB burning tool and then I can reload Android OS if LE doesn't work as I need it to?
Yup did that ..keeps booting into OE ...held it down through boot screen till it went to Kodi
I seriously doubt ....... but can I use the LE image to upadate the OE , by putting the LE .img in the update folder ( I know you can do LE to LE but not sure if you can do OE to LE )
For my mk808b, I did upgrade OE to LE using the update method.
