I got Eny's M8S!! What can I do with it?! THANK YOU
PCB number is M8 V8_1 20150418
This image's i've uploaded my device
and I wrote this article about 5 years ago...
and I couldn't use it from 5 years ago
As for the Eny M8S (n200's) for some reason Datrh's seems not to make a actual working img... It works great on all the minix devices but the older Eny's for some reason always ends up with a corrupted file system or can't find the proper partition. The compile goes ok and it produces a img but the image always comes up with the filesystem corrupt message or it can't find the partition its looking so it never expands the system on install. The wierd part is that happens when using a linux box to create the sdcard yet if you use windows and libreelecs sdcreator to create the sdcard it will get past the above mentioned errors and do the install but then it runs really unstable...
I gave up trying to find the issue with datrh's repo on these old n200 based boxes and made some mods to his build setup and made it work and have been testing it for awhile and it seems fine.
I just finished updating it to Leia 18.7.2 and once i am done a bit of testing if you want a copy to try, let me know and i will upload it someplace... Its intended for the original Eny M8S using the n200_2g device tree...
OMG I saw your kindness too lately!
Of course I wanna test it How can I sownload your build? Thank you very much!
I tried with anticipation, but unfortunately it failed. But thank you for your generous help. I will just stay at KitKat 4.4 with Jarvis. Thank you very much!
with the right dtb, it will works.
i will check
Can I use balbes150's Armbian dtbs? I tried your meson8m2_2G_old.dtb change to dtb.img but no lucks on Libreelec 9, and 17.6 final as same as default dtb.img. No wifi/bluetooth recognize only 1GB, What can I do something? Thank you
I installed your libreelec-x8-h_series.arm-8.2rc-kodi_17.6-final.img.gz on my ENY M8S (S812, n200, 2G/8G, AP6330). It works perfect except wifi/bluetooth and 1GB ram. I tried your libreelec 9 image but I failed boot. Can I use your build in the future? Thank you!
Files are missing... I've got M8S which is n200 board with 2GB/8GB. I coudn't success any S812's LibreELEC, I wanna try install with your image... Can you send the img.gz file to me? Please... my address is [email protected] or whatever you comfortable way thank you
Video calibration values doesn't work. It works only in Main UI but when I play something don't apply the value
I'm glad to use Kodi 17.4 on my M8S
Thank you Demetris
1. Write the image to SD card
2. Upgrade multi-boot (using a toothpick or Android app). When you activate the multi-boot method of a toothpick - do not hold down the button long after the appearance of the screen saver button to let go.
3. If the system fails to boot from SD card (within 10 minutes). Record the same image on the USB flash drive. Turn off the TV box. Unplug the TV box all USB device. Connect the USB flash drive. Turn on the power (buttons NOT push). 4. If the system does not start from USB stick. Try new image (write to USB) and instrucktion step 3.
Pay attention, this procedure is suitable only for those images that are on my website. For images Dimetris need to use a different start order and check (he described in his topic).
Of course I did that your explain exactly
I've used your image also in the past
But I couldn't get success what a pity I am
Firstly thank your for your work and open mind, (with Demetris collabo)
But I have no luck I couldn't success to install my M8S with your image
I tried LibreELEC-S812.LAN_100.arm-17.3_20170614.img and LibreELEC-S812.Test.arm-17.3_20170614.img
both of all. When I use .update folder in installed Demetri's image 'File system corrupted' error display
and I tried record SD and USB memory with rufus,
When SD inserts : M8S logo blinking contiues, and not change
when USB inserts : into android recovery and that's all
Although I couldn't succeed but I have to say thank you very much balbes150
You have to config the kernel, there is an extra element in the command line. If it is clear, the system will run on any medium. By the way, the initialization file is already desired setting.
BOOT_IMAGE=/dev/boot boot=/dev/system disk=/dev/data
By the way, You can use one image for all versions, they are perfectly combined (they have indexes to select dtb data, nearly all different, so do not interfere with each other when running).
If You don't mind, I propose to combine our expertise for the Assembly LE for S812 and make You the main developer. As I plan to focus on creating a full system LinuxDesktop+Kodi).
I love your S812 armbian! Glad to meet you here!
If I would be able to install any of balbes150 images on an SD card in the ENY M8S box, I pesume that I would be able to update it with Demetris MXIII-1G image and test it !
I could install balbes150 LibreELEC-S812.LAN_100.arm-17.3.img.gz on another M8S box that I have (a clone with a BCM4330X wifi) and as you mentioned tvheadend42 is not working with this build (wifi is not so important for me).
Could you install any of balbes150 images on an SD card with the ENY M8S box ? Can you say which specific image ? I have tried several images and all failed.
When I install balbes150's image I used SD card and USB memory both.
Because I met blabla 120 seconds error display.
1. Any balbes150's M8S LAN1000 image burn to SD and USB both of all
2. Using toothpick method with SD card and s805 script works then you can see blabla 120 seconds error.
3. Do same process above with USB memory (maybe outside one of two usb ports)
4. You can install balbes150's image to USB memory! Done!
but after balbes150's image install, I can't use .update folder Demetris's image. However you can use update folder
same developer's image.
Since at this moment I do not want to write the LibreELEC-S8X2.default.arm-7.0-devel-20170124000114-r23703-ge207b78.zip to NAND, I have tried booting with the LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.0.2a-MXIII-1G.img.gz from an SD card (I have used the toothpick with balbes150 image in the past so my M8S can boot from an SD card)
The M8S has started booting from the SD card and has detected a corrupted filesystem:
Filesystem corruption has been detected!
to prevent an automatic repair attempt continuing,
press any key or power off your system within the next 120 seconds
after two minutes it has started a recovery attempt and faild:

I have tried booting with the same image from a USB stick but the M8S didn't detect the USB and skipped to android boot.
Is there any clue/solution for making this box (ENY M8S) boot from an SD card wit Demetris images ?
I tried balbes150's image too. balbes150's image works fine to power on/suspend and can install on SD card. But I couldn't install tvheadend 4.2 and wifi+bluetooth doesn't work for me. So I looked for lots of images finaly I use Demetir's image, it can't install independetly but I satisfied over all. If I can mix balbes150's image and Demetris image it'll be the most perfect image but I can't. I know only windows and command prompt not linux
I guess the worst thing that can happen is that the card doesn't boot. I don't see any aml_autoscript files, so if booting for the first time what files are needed?
If you download LibreELEC develop version and unzip file you can see factory_update_param.aml with LibreELEC-S8X2.default.arm-7.0-devel-update.zip 2 files. These files put to SD with formatted FAT32 and then using toothpick method you can install libreelec to nand. This method same as your android firmware update progress, so if your device gone to brick you can unbrick it easily. I don't know how do you understand that I say. Cause I speak English likes Korean cause I'm Korean
I'm looking to install this img on a 1g MXIII G. I have a couple questions: I have an older build written by Wilro version 7.0.2 running off an SD card:
[ROM] Unofficial OpenELEC for MXIII-G & Tronsmart MXIII+ - FreakTab.comI'm not sure how to install the current Demetris image. Would the method still be to copy the Demetris img to the .update folder and reboot?
If not, I'm not clear on the method to use - img to SD then toothpick boot?
I would appreciate some help with the install method.
If you running any version of openelec or libreelec on SD I think you just put new image to .update folder
Toothpick method needs only first time install that I know
