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
It seems that I have exactly the same board as wowwoo
I have tried in the past most LE8 images from this thread and couldnt install them on an SD card. As wowwoo mentioned the process hangs with the M8S logo (didnt try to install on internal NAND).
I would be happy being able to install this thread recent image and will wait for Demetris to prepare a 2G image.
Wowwoo, can you give more detailed instructions for how to install LibreELEC-S8X2.default.arm-7.0-devel-20170124000114-r23703-ge207b78.zip
on an external SD card ? (Currently I am only familiar with the process of burning an SD card with an img.gz).
LibreELEC 7 deveop version makes your M8S to LibreELEC only device. It has update_param script and rom.zip file these are like android update rom. It can't install to SD or USB. So I install it to nand, cause recovery to android too easy
hmm ok let me manually edit k200b 1gb board file for you then
Thank you very much I have lots of time. Do not take it easy and slow it down. You do not have to. I'm already satisfied thank you for your work
For power on & suspend issue go fetch and flash from your manufacturer the newest bootloader i can do nothing about it!
Please use S82 image that works for your M8S 100% with 2gb ram!
I tried S82 image again, but it doesn't work. Stopping M8S logo forever. I did rollback it LibreELEC-S8X2.default.arm-7.0-devel-20170124000114-r23703-ge207b78.zip and after LibreELEC-S8X2.arm-8.0.2a-MXIII-1G.img.gz your image. I did it all just for 5 minuets
