My question was merely about the location of the kodi install, not kodi itself, I though my question would be better here because people are talking about eMMC and how to use the android partition to store the data. I am using the LibreELEC OS not Android.
Ive installed kodi so that it boots from eMMC. As I understand it all the data is stored on the android disk. If I use HD File Manager in Android, where can I find these files?
Hi all does anyone have a working link to Tanix TX7 android firmware please
Hi hopefully somebody can help me.. I’ve been using wrxtasy build for a long time without any problems and for some reason I decided I would try out the coreelec build, it installed ok but playback was terrible so I copied over the wrxtasy image and dtb to the upgrade folder and restarted and it went through the process but I am now stuck on the mecool logo. I’ve tried creating a sd cars with the image creator tool and it is still stuck on the mecool logo. (My original install was installed to internal) I’ve looked and I can’t find any hard reset button. The device is a mecool m8s pro 3gb s912
Anyone have any ideas?
Use the USB burning tool to get it back to android then install LE on eMMC
I found my answer
I have an ABOX S905W 2GB box that I want to run LE from sd card then do the [HOWTO] Boot from SD card, use internal memory for data trick.
I saw that @kszaq said to "S905W: You should use one of device trees for S905X devices"
So my question is if I want to install Index of /s905/8.2/18.104.22.168 does any one know what device tree works already?
Im going to try gxl_p212_2g.dtb first and go from there.
Does anyone have LE on this model if so please could you let me know which newest firmware and device tree you are using please.
It still something with your time settings.
Android is irrelevant, LibreELEC doesn't get time from Android.
Set it to auto in Kodi, pick the correct time zone, should work just fine.
Thanks that was a simple fix. What i had to do though was change to a different time zone then change it back again.
Android has nothing to do with the OpenVFD/FD628 driver in LE.
If you change a config file, the driver needs to be restarted, yes - you can reinstall it or just restart the box.
I don't understand what you mean by "can't change the clock". The time displayed is the system time, you shouldn't have to change anything in the driver, just make sure that the system time is set correctly on your box (in Kodi).
The current time here is 15:45 MST
The time on my Kodi is 15:45
The time on my Android side says 3:45PM
The time on my display says 21:45
I tried restarting the box after changing the vfd.conf file and nothing changed. Only when I uninstalled and reinstalled the command via ssh did it change.
I found the issue it was this:
IF YOU CHANGE VFD.CONF FILES YOU HAVE TO RUN THE "sh uninstall.sh" THEN "sh install.sh" WITH THE NEW VFD.CONF FILE.
I do actually now have another problem. I can't change the clock in the display. I changed it in android AFTER i ran the sh install.sh command.
Do you have to set the clock in android first then run the command??

Ahh I see they are actually different, my mistake.
I have tried both many times and no matter which one i try my display is always upside down.
Any ideas what the heck could be going on?
I even deleted my FD addon settings file.
Ive just noticed that the Z6 and the TX9 vfd.conf files are the same apart from the box name
Just to clarify I’m trying to get it working on a TX9 Pro box.
Well read my post #336 on this thread which will link you to The Coolests post #126 on Page 7. Yes it will be possible as I have my later Tanix TX9 Pro S912 box working fine with the front panel display which before also just showed "boot". So get the files that The Coolest page 7 post links to, and follow the instructions. You will have to replace your device tree file with the equivalent replacement one which is modified for the vfd driver. When you set it up you will likely get a Permissions error which will require changing the linux file attributes on the main FD628Service file, but this is an easy ssh chmod 777 <file name> command into your box. I can help you with that too if needed now that I am aware of how it all works.
Im trying to get this working on my TX9 box.
Im on LibreELEC-S912.arm-8.2.5-Chroma.422.10bit.img
I used the gxm_q200_3g.dtb from the Oclock-GPU-new-device-trees-S912-levfd link posted in #126.
I also used the vorke-z6-vfd.conf as suggested.
I have the display working but the time is upside down.
Im wondering if the vfd.conf is the correct one. Maye you could post your .dtb and .conf files for me.
I know what I’m doing as well. I have been flashing boxes for many years. This is the first box that has given me issues and I can say that now it is back to android the issue with the freezing is still there on android. So the issue was not with me flashing to internal.
No sooner than I wrote this I found a guide that solved the issue with my computer constantly disconnecting.
What I didn't know was that the box had to be in recovery mode. To do this I used the most common method which was this:
Use a USB-C M-M both ends and put it in the USB PORT (can't remember which one, only 1 works)
Use a pin to hold the reset button in.
Push the other USB end into your computer with USB burning tool running.
Hold button in for 10 seconds.
Device should now show up and burn as normal.
I flashed My Vorke Z6 Plus S912 to internal memory. Im now having issues with it freezing on the VORKE logo or the LibreELEC logo. Sometimes it boots fine. I was wanting to get it back to Android and see how it runs.
Ive tried different versions of LE but all versions seem to behave the same.
I tried to connect it to USB Burning tool on 2 separate computers and it flashes up connected then disconnects right away.
I also tried the SD card method but the box would not boot.
Can anyone give me any suggestions on what to try or where to seek help.
