You need to use M8S dtb file. The default one wont work on your board
Ethernet works fine here, wifi is still a WIP
You can provide me a dmesg log but controllers dont need any configuration they should be plug and play. Can i have the controller model you are connectiing please?
Some more exciting news coming up for this old champ:
I have ported Batocera Linux RetroGaming Firmware on this soc thanks to Martin Blumenstingl excellent work!
You can try and test it here
It should be able to boot straight on a MXIII-G/PLUS S812 board for the others you now the drill of renaming the dtb.
And how i was suppose to know what you did and what not when you didn't gave any info about your quirks.
Last time i looked into my magic sphere, the S802 boxes would normally be bootable with any of the S82/S82B/S82H/MXIII/S89/S89H images.
MXIII-PLUS/MXIII-G/PROBOX2-EX-PLUS is for S812 boxes.
What i get from this?
You don't flash the bootloader and you are stuck with S812 one so S802 images don't work.
Either flash/wipe with usb and amlogic tool a proper image or stay with S812 bootloader and keep crossflashing S812 images.
Note that I don't know if reverting to S802 bootloader will fix your issues or not, so do as your gut tells you to do.
I have actually made it so easy for you to find a compatible image/firmware that the next step is to come over and flash it for you.
The secret hint is in the naming i gave the boxes in OP
Both releases are using exactly the same driver so i don't get how WiFi could be slower.
Maybe your capacitors that feed the wifi with current are getting old and need replacement, maybe is your router, no one can actually say for sure.
No one reported such issue thus far, what is your box?
Update: Since no reported bugs for some time now am moving the release on OP
Hello and goodbye as this release should be my final one since these amlogic boxes cant be supported anymore due to lack of upstream support.
Here is LE9 with Kodi Leia 18.6 for S82 and MXIII-PLUS
I readed all post since page 49 and I didn't found my answer.
I'm using LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.2.3-MXIII-1G on my Chinesse OTT M8S n200 box AP3663.
All working fine,
Is there a way to make it work with 2G?
No, 1gb boxes are not supported
I've found the issue, the version of "inputstream.adaptive" which I entered manually into the .kodi/addons directory is "old" (2.3.x) for Kodi 18.5 Leia, and I cannot find the correct version 2.4.2 already compiled.
Could anyone be able to zip here with that compressed folder? Thank you!
Demetris, is it not possible to make the LibreELEC repo navigable?
I solved it using the image "LibreELEC-MXIII_Plus.arm-9.0-devel-20190517212215-9a6423a.img" with Kodi 18.2, Amazon VOD now works perfectly, and the LibreELEC repo is full functional!
So please Demetris please check your latest build with Kodi 18.5, there's issue inside, for example:Code
2020-01-08 10:52:12.534 T:2680718192 ERROR: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/demetris/S8X/build.LibreELEC-MXIII_Plus.arm-LE9-Kodi_18.5/LibreELEC-settings-171142f0bfe5e0d875618b8b1f016c1355476691/.install_pkg/usr/share/kodi/addons/service.libreelec.settings/resources/lib/modules/updates.py", line 521, in check_updates_v2 File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/__init__.py", line 339, in loads File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/decoder.py", line 364, in decode TypeError: expected string or buffer
Thank you for the feedback
That is the reason why i didn't announce the new version on the main page.
These images are here for you to test and report so i can fix the remaining issues before the official release.
Let me know if anything else comes up and thanks again for the report
Hello Demetris and thank you for the new file of Kodi 18.5. I run it to my mxiii-g but I have the same problems. When i turn it off is rebooting and its turning on again, and in power menu there is no option for rebooting (switch) to Android
to be able to shutdown you need these
That is exactly why i have placed the soc generation next to the release. Choose the image you try to flash accordingly to what SOC you own.
For S812 boxes image is the one named
M8 is not supported in this release.
Did you tried booting old M8 Images?
I have an image ready for Leia 18.5 for S82&MXIII-PLUS and compatible boards that need testing.
If you are interested have a shot at it
S82(S802) Try the S82 image
MXIII-PLUS(S812) Try the MXIII_Plus image
Kinda confused by this thread. It has s802 in the title but, as I'm understanding this Demetris is no longer building for Amlogic s802. Do I understand about that correctly? Still, it seems some of his older builds for s802 might be available at the links given in the OP. If that's the case, how do I tell which build is for Amlogic s802? Also, have I understood correctly that these builds are for writing to SD card so that the OS boots from it rather than from the box's internal ROM? Clarifications will be appreciated.
PS Currently nursin along my older box with MyGica, which works acceptably for now. Would like to try out LibreELEC though.
S802 & S812 are the same minus the gbit lan on the later thus the S8X2 abbreviation
OP is updated with LE9.0.2 download links
