    OK. Running on sd card and actually running Emmc backup.

    This looks amazing

    I can't wait to install to Emmc and test it.

    If this works (and I'm pretty sure is going to do it) I would apreciate which process you do to install from sdcard to Emmc internal memory... Where can I get this info?

    I looked at my image of Khadas EDGE rk3399. It turns out it already has a dtb for rock960. To run on Rock960 just edit the file " extlinux.conf" (change the name of the dtb used). Also in the composition there are a few more DTB. For those who want to try running this version on RK3399-you can take turns trying all these files.



    OK, i will try again with khadas Image...i tried the rk3328 one and thought was compatible with rk3399 with dtb file. (i see my mistake now)

    Quote from Locoivan Sorry, can you explain how does this work?
    I have a nanopc-t4 with rk3399 soc.
    Installed dtb file from rockpro64 and now i can use wireless, bluetooth and can see emmc as mmcblk1 but not able to mount mmcblk1p1 (previously i installed armbian inside emmc and it's suposed to have an ext4 filesystem).
    are you saying is there a kodi addon able to do the emmc installation?

    Did I understand correctly that you were able to run the LE image for EDGE on your T4 model ?

    No, LE rk3399 image from LE not yours, but changed dtb from rockpro64 that detects wireless and emmc


    You want to install LE in the eMMC ? To do this, the GUI Libreelec Settings has a special menu for installation in eMMC, to create and restore a full backup.


    Yes... I want to install LE in the eMMC. Did not know GUI Libreelec Setting had this feature

    This image is for all rk3328. What model are you trying to run it on ?

    Nanopc-T4 (rk3399)



    Summarizing: I will install khadas image on sd and change dtb. Once running go to GUI Libreelec Setting and locate the special menu for the eMMC installation.



    Anyway, thanks for your attention.


    PD: Offtopic - Do you know where can i find more info about how eMMC works? i mean, i tried to mount eMMC on /mnt from the sd LE install but only see the first partition. And i know there are 6 more partitions (how this filesystem works?) how should i mount the rootfs partition (i guess is the 7)

    tried previous version same result.

    I'm very interested on how emmc partitions / boot works.

    I don't want to brick my nanopc-t4, but if armbian can install itselve inside emmc, means libreelect should can too.

    can you help me to understand how to do it?

    If you want, you can try to check how the installation will work on your model in eMMC. All my images are universal, just add your dtb to dir /dtb (it can be copied from the current LE image you are using now) to the SD card and edit the file "/extlinux/extlinux.conf" (specify in it which dtb to use). After that, try running LE from a prepared SD card, if everything works, you can run the EMMC installation from KODI. There is a special menu Libreelec Settings. Before installing to eMMC, I strongly recommend that you run a full backup of the entire eMMC. It will not be fast (about 20-30 minutes), but you will be able to return the exact state in the eMMC, which will be at the time of creation of the copy.

    downloaded LibreELEC-RK3328.aarch64-9.1-devel-20190110144513-79c10ab-box-trn9.img

    changed dtb (working on libreelect)

    changed extlinux.conf

    blackscreen on boot.

    :(


    must I change something else?

    I have a nanopc-t4 with rk3399 soc.

    Installed dtb file from rockpro64 and now i can use wireless, bluetooth and can see emmc as mmcblk1 but not able to mount mmcblk1p1 (previously i installed armbian inside emmc and it's suposed to have an ext4 filesystem).

    are you saying is there a kodi addon able to do the emmc installation?

    do you have tried the dtb linked on my post ? Replace it on your m4 sd card and you will see wireless wifi and bt working.

    Hi!

    Yes!!!
    Now i can see the wireless device and Kodi show aviable wireless connections (haven't tested to connect through wireless but seems to be working fine)

    Bluetooth is now aviable.

    And now i can see mmcblk1 device (emmc internal storage)

    I have to do more testing to be sure all is working fine and try to understand how emmc works, to try install libreelec inside.

    Have you tested docker on this compilations?

    it would give us tones of possibilities

    My next steps are install libreelec on internal emmc,mount usb3 storage devices and nfs, try to install software (openvpn server, transmission) through docker.
