Ok, sorry. Just want to say dtb file is not the problem, kernel is. I misunderstood how that works. Sorry for bothering you and thank you for the answers.
Yeah, devs wont help when it comes to installtointernal. They don't prevent the community, though.
It's not their problem, it's mine. I thought, since this community is bigger, I have better chances getting some help here. I'll try on their forums, too.
I'm booting CoreELEC from sd card on this box. I hope I can get some help on this forum cause both OS's are very much the same.
So, CoreELEC is working nicely from sd card using gxl_p281_2g.dtb. But when i start installtointernal through ssh i get this error:
blkid gives me thisCode

If I understand correctly CoreELEC doesn't see internal memory of the box and that's why installtointernal doesn't work. gxl_p281_2g.dtb is a right dtb for this box but when I decompile CoreELEC one and the original one to .dts there are some differences (seen in Meld), especially in partitions section. I tried to switch original dtb with CoreELEC one but it wont boot. Does someone know how to make a new dtb from the original one that is specific to my device but to work with CoreELEC. I'll attach both .dts in .txt format.
Same problem here. Device is Tanix TX3 Mini - H. Libreelec boots nicely from sd card with gxl_p281_2g or gxl_p212_2g but installtointernal doesnt work.
Seems like Libreelec doesnt see eMMc on these boxes cause reboot to internal doesn't work either. From what I've read online these boxes (L and H) have different motherboard (v1.3 printed on them, old ones are v1.1). I couldn't install any custom s905w ROM, only the original one from Tanix web site. Does this mean that this boxes need different dtb.img file? If so, how can i get one?
I hope that someone will come up with the solution cause Kodi works perfectly on this little box with LibreElec or CoreElec but I would still like to use Android for Youtube and some browsing. Thank you for your help once more, man! I appreciate it.
Thanks for the reply! I hooked it up with LAN cable and performance is much, much better (full speed, low ping)! One more question... My LibreElec is burned on sd card. As long as sd card is inserted into the box I cant boot back to Android. There is a "reboot to internal" option in Kodi shut down menu but it reboots back into LibreElec. Only way to boot Android is to turn off device and eject sd card. Is there something I can do about that? It's super inconvinient to use it this way.
I have a WiFi problem with LibreElec. I get low speed and high ping and I dont know why. My device is Tanix TX3 Mini - H, 2GB RAM 16GB mem with SSV6051 WiFi chip inside. Dtb is glx_p281_2g and it boots nice and fast. Signal strength is 75%, it connects to WiFi with no problem but I cant get more than 9Mb/s. I have 20Mb/s ADSL. Android on this same device goes up to 18Mb/s, this version of LibreElec goes to 9Mb/s, LibreElec 8.2 goes up to 12Mb/s and CoreElec 9.0.1 goes only to 4Mb/s. With higher speed ping gets smaller. Can't figure out the problem, it's strange how different versions behave differently with wifi. Is there something I can do to fix this behavior cause I would really like to use LibreElec on my box, Kodi works so much better than on Android...
