thanks. I'll try the internal kodi backup solution.
I have LE installed on internal. I am really happy with it (fast & reliable).
but I am always a bit scared when I have to update it.
Is there a way to do a full backup of internal LE (OS & data) to sdcard ? and be able to boot on this sdcard in case of update failure on internal partition ?
Can I ask you why you're extracting it? The dtb file from Android doesn't work on Libreelec.
Did you use a s905x device tree? I have a s905w Soc as well, and using this dtb for the s905x, everything works good.
I clearly missed that point !
I'll try with your dtb, but I think there is something else than DTB. I can't understand why any of the ~20 dtb files I tried (from various sources can't work).
I am trying to extract the DTB file, but I get some issues ...
with ADB, I copied boot.img with :
dd if=/dev/block/boot of=/sdcard/boot.img
but the split with a 0 byte for ‘second’ (which should contain the dtb if I am right) :
Page size: 2048 (0x00000800)
Kernel size: 7110087 (0x006c7dc7)
Ramdisk size: 1315813 (0x001413e5)
Second size: 0 (0x00000000)
Command line: buildvariant=userdebug
Writing boot.img-kernel … complete.
Writing boot.img-ramdisk.gz … complete.
so ... I am stuck …
EDIT 2 :
here is the pastebin of dmesg
damned ! I finally managed to extract the dts file !
I found the infos here :
it's a multi DTB.
here is the start :
p212 ... lol.
still not booting with the extracted DTB !!!
here is everything I extracted :
any help please ?
The thing that conclusively proves the SoC type is under the heatsink, but the sticker that's visible indicates S905W.
the heatsink is glued ... impossible to remove.
But 'Usb burning tool' manage to connect.
This is definetly an S905(x/w) device.
Seems that your box, Alfawise A95X R1, has a Rockchip RK3229 chipset, not an Amlogic. For this reason it doesn't work. Searching in the forum, they say your cpu is still not supported, I'm sorry. You can read this thread .
thanks for your answer, but under Android , it says Amlogic / Cortex A53 with CpuZ (vs Coretx A7 for RK3229) , and the specs seems to match.
It seems there 2 variants of the A95X R1 : s905W / rk3229
here is my version :
I've just received an A95X-R1 box (with S905W) with 1GB.
I managed to force the boot on sdcard (swith at the bottom of jack port).
But impossible to boot libreelec: either black screen after A95X logo, or boot loop after the same logo.
I tried LE 8.2.3 an CE 8.90.2.
I also tried the following DTB files : p281_1g_xxx and p212_1g_xxx
The motherboard is marked A95XA1_V2_0 / 20170905
The internal case is marked A95MINI 8139.
Any idea how to fix this please ?
how often does Kodi crash ?
I am wondering if it is interesting to change from S905X to S912 to have a little bit more juice for docker...
I had a go at building htop but ran into issues and then something more interesting came up, or something. Needs someone with more build fu than me to figure it out. escalade has it in his builds, but if remember right, compiled with shared libs not static.
thanks for the feedback.
I am willing to try
How can I try to build only addons ?
any update on this ?
I would really love to see htop available
I agree the processor supports it
You need :
- kernel with cryptodev module
- openssl/libressl to use the crypto engine
- openvpn configured to use crypto engine
Nobody managed to get the full stack working on Odroid C2. If you manage to do it, it would be awesome.

Between S905 and S905X, I don't think you'll see the difference
On my MiniMX III (s905), I got 4.2MB/s download (~33Mb/s) over a gigabit fiber and gigabit ethernet connection.
ARM processor are not very good with encryption... and there is no hardware encryption supported with the kernel (cryptodev) like Intel can do.
Samba boost !
thanks for the optimizations
the best score I have seen on arm :p

I'll check what can be done to optimize read speed
how can I add custom CEC button actions ?
I would like to open the subtitles download panel while I am playing a video with the remote red button.
Ok, I found the solution
