So I managed to fix the box and get it going again in android but in the whole process it seemed to me that I could kind of get v8rc4 working by using the boot recovery once with the written image in SD slot and then booting it from USB. However, it would not boot from SD - its like it wanted to and found the 1st partition and its like it couldn't find the 2nd partition. I think there is something there that could be fixed ?
Also I prefer to use Kodi 16.1 for now so that means using v7.0.3 but that does not boot from either SD or USB. Again, once the box has had the first reboot-recovery done and picked up the AML script from v8rc4 it should be able to dual boot v7.0.3 also (?) - and v7.0.3 does not have the AML script, hence the convoluted way of first using v8rc4 - and again for v7.0.3 it is as if it boots the 1st partition and then cannot find the 2nd. I think this could be fixed ?
If this could be fixed this would be so cool - its been ages since I thought about have libreelec (openelec then) running on S802 box as no one, up until now, has worked on this dual-boot problem, so I think its close (thank you !) but hoping the issue of not finding the 2nd partition and being able to use kodi 16.1 can be worked out. Thanks in advance.
