How to Run Headless Linux on Amlogic S905 Devices Such as MINI MX or K1 Plus

A few week ago, I had been informed that Amlogic S905 U-boot and Linux source code was released, and one person use the code and other resources to load a minimal Ubuntu 14.04 image to his K1 Plus TV box and released the installation instructions and the image (Thanks olin!). I also have K1 Plus here, but since I’ve just finished reviewing Beelink MINI MX, I decided to use the latter instead. The instructions below boot Linux from the (micro) SD card, and can still boot Android if you remove the SD card.

Modifying U-boot environment

The instructions include opening the box, and connecting or soldering a USB to TTL debug board to access U-boot and change some parameters. But later once an image with network is working, you could also build and load fw_setenv and fw_saveenv, and do the same steps with an Android shell and without the need to open the device.

Serial connection to MINI MX (Click to Enlarge)

K1 Plus has the UART headers populated so you don’t have to solder anything, but MINI MX requires a little bit a soldering on the clearly marked Tx, Rx, GND pins.

Connect your USB to TTL debug board to your computer, configure minicom / putty / screen to 115200 8N1, start the board, and press the space bar to interrupt the boot:


You may want to run printenv in order to back the default settings:


Now you can change some settings in U-boot in order to allow for Linux to boot from SD card. If you are doing so directly in Android terminal via adb, you can replace setenv and saveenv by fw_setenv and fw_saveenv (no present in MINI MX firmware):

Flash Ubuntu image to the SD card

First download the Ubuntu image: ubuntu-14.04-headless-arm64.7z.

I’ve done this step in an Ubuntu computer, but you could also perform the same steps in Windows with 7pzip and Win32DiskImager. Install required tools and uncompress the image.


Insert the micro SD card (2GB or greater) in your computer, check the device with lsblk, and flash the image to your SD card by replacing /dev/sdX in the command below by your actual device.

Get the Device Tree File for Your device

If you are trying this on K1 Plus, you can skip that step, but if you are using another device, in my case Beelink MINI MX replacing the device tree file in /boot/dtb.img might be a good idea. For example, MINI MX would only get a Fast Ethernet connection with K1 Plus device tree file, but once I extracted the one from the Android firmware I got an Gigabit Ethernet connection.

If you’ll need to get boot.img either from some firmware update file, or directly from the NAND flash. I don’t have firmwre for MINI NX, so I dumped the boot partition with an adb shell:


Then I followed the instructions to extract a device tree file from Android, until I get boot.img-second.gz file, which I copied to the boot partition in the SD card with Ubuntu

Run Ubuntu in MINI MX

You may want to extend the rootfs partition in the SD card with gparted, or you’ll only have a small part of your SD card used. Now insert the SD into your Amlogic S905 TV box, and connect the power.

After some time getting wasted waiting for the network, you should be able to access to command line by logging in with user debian and password temppwd:


That’s a minimal image so there’s plenty of free space and memory:


All four cores are shown when I check the cpuinfo:


The kernel is build with Android’s option “CONFIG_ANDROID_PARANOID_NETWORK“, so all network configuration must be done with root:


So there’s some work to be done, but at least that’s a start.

[Update: It’s easy to put the case together with the serial wires by cutting the plastic case a little.

    “Only one core is shown when I check the CPU however”

    One core? You definitely have 4 being up here. It is just an ancient kernel with a deprecated format for /proc/cpuinfo.

  2. December 6th, 2015 at 16:12 | #2

    @maz
    Oops. You’re right. I saw so few lines i thought it was only showing 1 core. But 4 processors are shown…

    Thanks for the write-up.

    Regarded the CPU – the kernel config (meson64) has the hot-plug cpu governor set as default (which I was not aware of) so the ‘top’ utility really displayed only one core (after presing key ‘1’) – the rest of the cores was disabled. This also casued issues with installation of cpufreq tools (basically the apt-get install hanged), so I changed the default CPU governor to ondemand in my kernel build, which fixed the installation issue and hopefully might be more convenient for benchmarking purposes etc.

    So I don’t need anything except original amlogic kernel + device tree file
    to boot kernel on amlogic device ??

  6. olin
    December 7th, 2015 at 05:54 | #6

    @m][sko
    Correct. You also need a way how to start the kernel from the memory card – that’s what the u-boot scripts are for.

  9. December 7th, 2015 at 20:04 | #9

    @fossxplorer
    These are standard 2.54mm dupont cables with female connectors:

    good work!
    Is it possible to write the device’s bootenv with booting a modified recovery SDcard?
    There is a set_bootloader_env() function in the updater-script.

  13. December 8th, 2015 at 16:19 | #13

    @gcsuri
    It might be but I haven’t tried it yet.

    Should be able to place uboot autoscript commands into “aml_autoscript” on a fat partitioned sdcard or usb, when you hit the physical upgrade button (or IR codes?) while booting It’ll try “usb burning > sd burning > sd recovery > usb recovery” in that order.

    December 10th, 2015 at 16:34 | #16

    @Whiterat @gcsuri
    thats a good idea. there is a way how to trigger upgrade from mmc by pressing menu (hamburger) button on the remote during boot, which loads the recovery.img kernel. the only issue right now is the framebuffer doesn’t seem to be working correctly, so virtual console and terminal doesn’t work (nothing is displayed on the screen connected via hdmi) – but maybe it’s just a matter of reconfiguring kernel. so for now ony serial console or ssh works.

    @olin
    I’ve just got my MXQ and Mini MX.
    On MXQ I can use “setprop ubootenv.var.something val” command to change uboot variables from userspace.
    It doesn’t work on MiniMX 🙁 – Is there any built-in utility in MiniMX to write /dev/block/env ?

  21. gcsuri
    January 2nd, 2016 at 16:36 | #21

    @olin , @cnxsoft

    OK, I got the solution to read/write the bootenv without jtag…

    dumpsys system_control -b [ set | get ] bootenv [value]

    for example:
    dumpsys system_control -b get ubootenv.var.bootdelay

    I’d love to see some noob friendly instructions to get Linux with desktop running on S905 boxes. Yes, Kodi would be great but for other uses. Or some dual boot instructions?

  23. January 3rd, 2016 at 04:26 | #23

    @Methanoid
    That is very optimistic thinking I must say 🙂

    One solution is to wait for Odroid C2 board and their emmc with preinstalled Lubuntu 🙂

    @Number 63 it’s quite easy to open.
    I explain how I did it in the teardown section @ http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/11/23/mini-mx-4k-android-media-player-unboxing-and-teardown/
    You just need to slide a sharp plastic tool.

    very nice tutorial i’ll test that on my s802/s812 boxes, both run openelec images but i’d like to have regular distros.
    I’ve located the unpopulated rs232 headers on both boards, looks like most of them will have those debug pins.

    I wanted to know if you had a chance to test the gigabit performance (iperf) with that kernel on your mini mx box, and if you noticed the same duplex behavior as in your review.

    Also you mention the Android / Linux kernel, i’m a bit confused as to what amlogic actually released and if there’s a difference between the two. I assuming that to run a linux root fs i should only be interested in using a linux kernel, if i’m wrong about that please let me know.

  34. January 8th, 2016 at 09:28 | #34

    @mdel
    Amlogic S812 should even be worse. Expect 200 to 300 Mbps max.

    Both Android and Linux kernel are based on the same source tree, but the Linux kernel for Android has some extra options. You can still use linux rootfs with an Android kernel, but you’ll get some funny behaviors, like the need to be root to access the network. Usually, it’s just a matter of disabled the Android option with make menuconfig to get a kernel better suited for a “Linux” rootfs.

  35. mdel
    January 8th, 2016 at 17:55 | #35

    @cnxsoft
    i believe my s812 M8S box only has 100Mbit eth, but i’m quite familiar with those “usb gigabit” boards (pcduino), which are limited to usb bandwidth so 480Mbps at best, usually 300Mbps.
    I was going to buy an M8S+ box (s812 with “GBe”) but i can’t find the s812 block diagram to see if it has hardware GBe interface, apparently the S805 diagram has GBe.

    Thx for the kernel info, i’ll try building one for my S8xx boards and serial u-boot them over the weekend.

    A couple of questions more on topic :
    if a box can already boot a linux image from SD Card (beelink MXQ), is it simply because the existing nand uboot has the same configuration as the one you set through serial as described above ?

    Also are there TTL voltage considerations to be careful about when plugin an adapter on those boards ?
    i’m mentioning this because that’s something you need to know about when doing the same thing on a raspberry pi which has 3.3v GPIO, including its serial interface, and some (most?) USB/Serial TTL adapters use 5V signals..

    Could any “distro” run X in this box?

  37. mdel
    January 9th, 2016 at 02:30 | #37

    gcsuri :
    Could any “distro” run X in this box?

    My knowledge on the matter is quite limited, so @cnxsoft will probably tell you more.

    There are gpu drivers in the amlogic tarballs, so X should be able to run with some 2D acceleration, but “running” X does necessarily mean much, some basic use case could be barely functional (videos).
    But so far i was able to boot and ubuntu (lxde) filesystem, using an openelec 6 kernel, on an s805 box and the desktop was running “fine”. It also works on similar platforms like raspberry pi, odroid, orange pi boards.
    Advanced (3D) window managers, unity, gnome shell and so on, would require 3D acceleration and i have no idea what’s the state of the mali X driver in that regard..
    I do believe Kodi uses 3D accel to work but i’m not sure it uses an X server, at least in standalone mode in openelec.

  38. January 9th, 2016 at 10:50 | #38

    @mdel
    Some people tend to overestimate my skills… as I’ve spent my time reading and write in the last 5 years, rather than doing any projects, so I mostly rely on others. But with the latest source, I assume it should be possible to run X. I’ve been told both the framebuffer and X11 GPU drivers were available, so some form of GPU acceleration should be possible too. The easiest way is to sit and relax until ODROID-C2 comes out. Now Hardkernel is taking their time before launching because many Ubuntu packages are still not working/available for ARM64, one of them being Chromium if I remember correctly.

  39. gcsuri

    1 GB copied, 10.6484s, 98.4MB/s
    I think the eth interface works on full bandwidth 😉

    my SDcard reading speed is about 10MB/sec
    internal mmc is around 40MB/s

    @gcsuri
    most impressive gigabit stats.
    too bad s805 boxes don’t make use of the chip gigabit capabilities (according to hardkernel datasheet).

    Concerning your X test, did you build a kernel with the gpu driver or use the image provided by olin ?
    Not sure which module X should load with a working gpu driver but fbdev is not accelerated so..

  42. gcsuri
    January 10th, 2016 at 21:23 | #42

    I’m using fbdev on X. Windows moving fast enough. There is a bug in the amlogic fb code so 32bpp doesn’t work well (there are a lot of black area in the screen). I had to define 24bpp in x.conf and changed the kernel driver to 24bit init to get fbcon work perfectly.
    Now I’m working on the USB boot because it’s 4x faster than cardreader…

    You can use two scripts, the first is making a universal change to the settings of u-boot, the second uses the personal settings for each version OS of the system.

    The first stage – change settings via the launch of the first script in update mode :

    aml_autoscript

    for example with this content :

    echo Start script update env aml_autoscript
    setenv preboot “run factory_reset_poweroff_protect;run upgrade_check;run bootmode_check;run init_display;run storeargs;run update_key;run irremote_update;run start_autoscript;run switch_bootmode;”
    setenv start_autoscript “if mmcinfo; then run start_mmc_autoscript;fi;if usb start; then run start_usb_autoscript;fi;”
    setenv start_mmc_autoscript “if fatload mmc 0 1020000 s905_autoscript; then autoscr 1020000; fi”
    setenv start_usb_autoscript “if fatload usb 0 1020000 s905_autoscript; then autoscr 1020000; fi”
    saveenv
    echo END script update env aml_autoscript
    reboot

    the second stage, for each version of your script s905_autoscript
    for example to run the USB flash image Odroid C2 on Vega S95 Telos

    setenv m “720p60hz”
    setenv mbpp “32”
    setenv bootargs “root=LABEL=rootfs rootwait rw console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend hdmimode=${m} m_bpp=${mbpp} net.ifnames=0”
    fatload usb 0:1 0x13000000 uInitrd
    fatload usb 0:1 0x11000000 Image
    fatload usb 0:1 0x1000000 img.dtb
    booti 0x11000000 0x13000000 0x1000000

    for example to run the SD image Odroid C2 on Vega S95 Telos

    setenv m “720p60hz”
    setenv mbpp “32”
    setenv bootargs “root=LABEL=rootfs rootwait rw console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty0 no_console_suspend hdmimode=${m} m_bpp=${mbpp} net.ifnames=0”
    fatload mmc 0:1 0x13000000 uInitrd
    fatload mmc 0:1 0x11000000 Image
    fatload mmc 0:1 0x1000000 img.dtb
    booti 0x11000000 0x13000000 0x1000000

    I only managed to get burn on the nand a the newly compiled u-boot and a bare filesystem (no apt-get,… etc), although the “release” build configurations do build the X…
    Be aware that if you install the C2’s uboot on the nand it will brick the box and you will have to flash it shorting some nand pins: http://mbox.co.za/forum/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=182&start=20#p3748

    You can try this option. But if something goes wrong, you will need a UART.
    The method is universal and can work on all devices based on Amlogic S905.

    http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-support/amlogic-based-tv-players/s905/tronsmart-ac/firmware-roms-tools-at/565449-running-linux-from-sd-card-or-usb-flash-drive-using-balbes150-method-and-files

    If damaged, the boot loader image from Odroid C2.
    Easily restored.
    Prepare the SD card with the file with the firmware update for Your device.
    Assemble u-boot for your device.
    Make u-boot for your device to get the files u-boot.bin.bin.sd.bin and u-boot.bin.
    Or download the finished files from the site at the link.
    In Linux, run the commands :

    dd if=u-boot.bin.sd.bin of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1 count=442

    dd if=u-boot.bin.sd.bin of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=512 skip=1 seek=1

    dd if=u-boot.bin of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=512 seek=97

    Insert the SD card into the device and turn it on.
    The device will boot from internal memory.
    Perform the standard firmware update. As a result, the boot loader will be restored.

    @balbes150
    Ok, thanks. Last morning I tried the Telos Odroid C2 Ubuntu mate image (copied to an sd card with dd: https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905/wiki/Openelec-for-Tronsmart-Vega-S95-Telos-(English) ), with my device’s dtb and modified u-boot, and it worked.
    However, what I want to do is flash the internal nand. The telos odroid C2 image doesn’t include the nand drivers module, so it won’t detect the filesystem.

    What I’ve managed so far is to build the sources following this guide http://openlinux.amlogic.com:8000/download/doc/linux-3.14-buildroot-pkg-201512-release-v1.0.pdf (with some tweaks) and include the nand memory driver into the kernel (in the built rootfs: lib64/modules/3.14.29/kernel/amlogic/nand/aml_nftl_dev.ko).
    The guide shows also how to burn the system into the nand flash.
    With that what a I get is a bare system as the one explained here: http://odroid.us/mediawiki/index.php?title=Step-by-step_Buildroot/Busybox_Root_File_System.

    I will keep trying to build and burn an Ubuntu mate system but with the nand module included in the kernel.

    P.S.: a useful way to compare several device’s dtb’s is to conver them to dts wit this command:
    dtc -I dtb -O dts -o

  59. April 14th, 2016 at 14:24 | #59

    Another useful information… one of the ways to change the telos ubuntu language from russian to english:

    Edit /etc/default/locale and change all ru_RU to en_US
    Edit ~/.pam_environment and change all ru_RU to en_US

    reboot

    (info found here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/132347/gnome-classic-language-turned-into-chinese-how-do-i-change-it-back-to-english)

    Hi,
    could you please share the MiniMx dtb.img ?
    It would be awesome to boot the Minimx on Linux :p

    April 15th, 2016 at 15:06 | #61

    Hi.

    What version MiniMx ? Have seen information that there are options. Therefore, for each variant it is better to use your file dtb.img . This file can be taken from a firmware image file for Your device.

  62. April 15th, 2016 at 15:13 | #62

    By the way, i make a new version of the script aml_autoscript. Changed the point of call. Now works fine, stop function in UART download in the presence of media s905_autoscript. In the first version, if there is a script s905_autoscript, you cannot stop booting to the console UART.

    Hi, I have been trying the identify and use the WiFi chip of an Acemax K3 board I have been dealing with. I managed to install Debian for Odroid C2 on it, using the Telos method.

    Once Debian was installed I tried to identify the hardware using dmesg, lshw, lsusb, lsmod but nothing came across.

    Then I booted the device in Android and downloaded a couple of hardware detection apps and nothing.

    I opened the device. To my surprise, the device has 2 antennas but one of them is connected to nothing! They are just using the 2 antennas to sell more devices!

    Then I downloaded the kernel for Odroid C2 and recompiled it with ALL the WiFi devices I could come across, including the Amlogic WiFi devices. After installing it I got some info in dmesg:

    Then the command:

    Can anybody give me some guidelines on what to do next to make it work?

    Thank you for your great work.

    Thanks balbes150, I imagined it involved adding something to the kernel related to this:

    http://openlinux.amlogic.com:8000/download/ARM/wifi/

    I’ll have a look to those openelec images to figure out what drivers need to be added to the 3.14.29 odroid C2 kernel so audio, bluetooth and wifi work.

    It would be nice finding a kernel that is ready for these TV devices, maybe I should build one and upload it to github.

    Thanks for the information, I’ll have a play with it.

    If your sd card is mounted at /dev/mmcblkXpY
    flash the ubuntu to sd card with
    sudo dd if=ubuntu-14.04-headless-arm64.img of=/dev/mmcblkX bs=16M

    Hi again.

    I have been reading the freaktab forums but still haven’t had any luck with the broadcom driver. I managed to merge the wifi sources of bcmdhd_1_201_59_x listed in http://openlinux.amlogic.com:8000/download/ARM/wifi/ with the Odroid C2 kernel and got an operating version of the dhd module, but when I load it, it doesn’t seem to try to search the nvram.txt or firmware from the directory I set. dhd seems to load ok with no errors, but I still don’t have a usable wlan0 interface.

    Do I need to load another module after dhd?

    Does anybody know if there is a 3.14.29 kernel with the missing amlogic broadcom and realtek sources?

    These are my logs

    I found the answer to my own question:

    The firmware and nvram get loaded with this command:

    ifconfig wlan0 up

    It tried to load a firmware and nvram but they were not the right ones for the adapter.

    I needed to find the right ones for this adapter. With the log of dhd I had some clues, with this line:

    F1 signature OK, socitype:0x1 chip:0x4335 rev:0x1 pkg:0x0

    Then I went to this page https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/brcm80211 and found out that the chip: 0x4335 corresponds to the Broadcom BCM4335 (The page says that it also belongs to BCM4338).

    The easiest way to find the right right firmware, nvram.txt and config.txt files, was by getting the original ones that came with the device. So I booted it in android. The connected to it using adb. The files were located in /system/etc/wifi/4335/

    Then it was just a matter of renaming the files nvram_bcm4335.txt to nvram.txt and the file fw_bcm43438a0.bin to fw_bcmdhd.bin. Then copying nvram.txt, fw_bcmdhd.bin and config.txt to the folder /lib/firmware/brcm/ (those file names and path were entered by me when I setup up the kernel with menuconfig).

    Finally when I did another ifconfig wlan0 up, got the following:

    Hi,

    I’ve got myself an M8S mini in the hope it could run the Odroid C2’s Linux image.
    Has anyone tried that mod yet?
    Thx.

    Hi again, now I have been dealing with a different device: a MXQ PRO 4K P200 TV Box.

    I have been trying to modify the bottloader environment to be able to boot other operating systems from the sdcard or usb ports as explained in the Telos method.

    The way the bootloader saves it environment in this box seems to be different to traditional bootloaders, where you can edit and save environment using fw_printenv or fw_saveenv.

    If I try to run fw_printenv, it says: Cannot access MTD device /dev/block/env: No such file or directory

    Then with the command:

    adb logcat –d | grep boot

    I get something like this:

    I/SystemControl( 2821): [ubootenv] using /dev/nand_env with size(65536)(65532)
    I/SystemControl( 2821): [ubootenv] set property ro.ubootenv.varible.prefix: ubootenv.var
    I/SystemControl( 2821): [ubootenv] ubootenv varible prefix is: ubootenv.var
    I/SystemControl( 2821): [ubootenv] key: [ubootenv.var.bootcmd] value: [(null)]
    I/SystemControl( 2821): [ubootenv] set property count: 0
    I/SystemControl( 2821): [ubootenv] update_bootenv_varible name [ubootenv.var.hdmimode]: value [1080p60hz]
    I/SystemControl( 2821): [ubootenv] update_bootenv_varible name [ubootenv.var.outputmode]: value [1080p60hz]
    ……..

    So I guess the bootloader environment is located in /dev/nand_env and the bootloader itself is in /dev/bootloader

    I then symbolic linked /dev/nand_env to /dev/block/env and when I ran fw_printenv it said Cannot get MTD information for /dev/block/env

    Are there any tools I can use like fw_printenv/fw_saveenv that will allow me to alter the bootloader environment of these boxes?

    I’m not familiar at all with dealing with a nand instead of a block device. I guess the answer is that fw_printenv can read and write the nand, but I’m not sure that’s possible.

    I don’t think the aml_autoload method will work in these boxes as the environment seems to be slightly different.
    Here’s a dump of /dev/nand_end http://pastebin.com/DEmEgQHB

    Con someone guide me into the right direction?

    Thanks in advance.

    Judging by this fragment :

    firecovery_from_sdcard=if fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} aml_autoscript; then autoscr ${loadaddr}; fi;if fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} recovery.img; then if fatload mmc 0 ${dtb_mem_addr} dtb.img; then echo sd dtb.img loaded; fi;bootm ${loadaddr};fi;recovery_from_udisk=if fatload usb 0 ${loadaddr} aml_autoscript; then autoscr ${loadaddr}; fi;if fatload usb 0 ${loadaddr} recovery.img; then if fatload usb 0 ${dtb_mem_addr} dtb.img; then echo udisk dtb.img loaded; fi;bootm ${loadaddr};fi;

    Activation multi-boot should work.
    The script uses native u-boot resources aml_autoscript. It does not depend on the type of NAND or eMMC. I know that the users Trebor of the website http://www.FreakTab.com successfully used multiboot on the device KI Plus (it uses NAND).

  73. Edgar
    May 7th, 2016 at 06:43 | #73

    Thanks balbes150. I have tried activating multi-boot with the aml_autoscript, but I don’t know why it is not working.

    If I try to reboot the system in recovery mode, then when I try to install the aml_autoscript.zip, the system complains it is not a signed package. If I use OTA Updater to install unsigned packages from within android, I get the boot splash screen for 45 seconds or so (and I can’t see what’s going on) then the system reboots but the changes don’t get saved into the nand.

    I’m using a fat32 formatted sd card with these files inside it:

    aml_autoscript
    aml_autoscript.zip

    The file aml_autoscript.zip just has aml_autoscript inside it.

    This is the content of my aml_autoscript.txt:

    echo Start script update env aml_autoscript
    sleep 5
    setenv preboot “run factory_reset_poweroff_protect;run upgrade_check;run bootmode_check;run init_display;run storeargs;run update_key;run irremote_update;run start_autoscript;run switch_bootmode;”
    setenv start_autoscript “if mmcinfo; then run start_mmc_autoscript;fi;if usb start; then run start_usb_autoscript;fi;”
    setenv start_mmc_autoscript “if fatload mmc 0 1020000 s905_autoscript; then autoscr 1020000; fi”
    setenv start_usb_autoscript “if fatload usb 0 1020000 s905_autoscript; then autoscr 1020000; fi”
    sleep 5
    echo END script update env aml_autoscript
    sleep 5
    printenv
    sleep 30
    reboot

    Then I make the aml_autoscript by running:

    mkimage -A arm -O linux -T script -C none -d aml_autoscript.txt aml_autoscript

    Judging by the time the system is taking to reboot, the script is running. Does anyone know how to send the output to a file (maybe something like printenv > /dev/sdcard) instead of the the screen that is covered with a splash screen, or maybe how to get rid of the splash screen?

    Alternatively I need to sign the package so it gets installed by the normal android recovery script. Does anyone know how to sign an android update package?

    Thanks again.

  74. May 8th, 2016 at 14:09 | #74

    You used test aml_autoscript. Is no save command parameters. Instead of printenv should be the command saveenv. It was the first script is for those who have a UART, is to see the result. Not all versions of u-boot supports output redirection. You can try to write a test script to test this possibility.

  75. Edgar
    May 8th, 2016 at 21:53 | #75

    Thank you balbes150. Sometimes we have the answer in front of us but we just don’t see it.

    I replaced printenv with saveenv and it worked. So now I have a wonderful MXQ Pro 4Q running debian from SD Card. I’m using my “adapted” Odroid C2 kernel and even the WiFi with the 8089es module is working perfectly.

    Below is the new aml_autoscript

    Thanks again

    echo Start script update env aml_autoscript
    sleep 5
    setenv preboot “run factory_reset_poweroff_protect;run upgrade_check;run bootmode_check;run init_display;run storeargs;run update_key;run start_autoscript;run switch_bootmode;”
    setenv start_autoscript “if mmcinfo; then run start_mmc_autoscript;fi;if usb start; then run start_usb_autoscript;fi;”
    setenv start_mmc_autoscript “if fatload mmc 0 1020000 s905_autoscript; then autoscr 1020000; fi”
    setenv start_usb_autoscript “if fatload usb 0 1020000 s905_autoscript; then autoscr 1020000; fi”
    sleep 5
    echo END script update env aml_autoscript
    sleep 5
    saveenv
    sleep 30
    reboot

    I recommend to use the new version of the script. It works correctly the ability to stop start process from console UART. In the first version of the script, if the detected file s905_autoscript, you can’t stop the download in console. In the new version it works correctly.

    https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s905/tree/master/script/s905_uboot

    Where can I see the config file for the kernel You are using ?
    Can I add MXQ 4Q Pro in the list on the WiKi ?

  77. Edgar
    May 9th, 2016 at 18:26 | #77

    Thanks balbes150, I’ll correct the script.

    The kernel I’m using is a merge of the Odroid C2 kernel and some Amlogic drivers I downloaded from here: http://openlinux.amlogic.com:8000/download/ARM/

    The config file is here:

    https://github.com/episani/amlogic_s905_kernel_merges/blob/master/linux/.config

    Basically I replaced the files Kconfig and Makefile in the drivers/amlogic folder with new ones I created myself, you can find them here:

    https://github.com/episani/amlogic_s905_kernel_merges/tree/master/linux/drivers/amlogic

    When I tried to compile those drivers I got a few errors with the Linaro toolchain I was using. I edited the WiFi drivers one one one to stop the errors. They seem to be working ok, but I haven’t done extensive tests yet.

    I also uploaded the dtb files for the MXQ Pro 4K and the Acemax K3, you can find them here:

    https://github.com/episani/amlogic_s905_kernel_merges/tree/master/dtb_file

    I have read there’s a few different versions of the MXQ Pro 4K though, the one I’m using is based on p200 and Rtlink WiFi 8189es. It says in the board AM95AXQ V1.0. I haven’t been able to find the UART pins of that board anywhere.

    The Acemax K3 is a much better board, but it is also more expensive. It has 2GB of RAM, the Broadcom WiFi also has Bluetooth and it has a power switch. It also has UART pins. As I mentioned before, the second WiFi Antenna is fake, as it is not connected to anything!

    I guess you can add anything you want to the WiKi. I haven’t seen the WiKi, what’s the address of the WiKi?

    @Cango here’s the Debian image for the MXQ Pro 4K. By changing the dtb file it can be used with other devices. I compiled all the amlogic wifi devices as modules in the kernel, so it should literally work with any board as long as you have the firmware. There are a few firmwares in /lib/firmware/wifi. The username is root and the password is odroid.

    https://mega.nz/#!VcYVzL6T!3sKJQbUYis6_10VlQ432_ZMfkCdy3Q2OUBbb-da_BbA

    @balbes150 Nice Wiki in Russian 🙂 It would be great to detect the board in u-boot and select a dtb file accordingly, that way a single image could be used for multiple devices.

    @Fossxplorer I don’t have the Acemax K3 at the moment but in the MXQ Pro 4K doesn’t seem to be working. I’ll check with another dtb file.

  86. Edgar
    May 28th, 2016 at 19:06 | #88

    @Fossxplorer I double checked the specs of the page where I got the MXQ Pro 4K and it actually says 100Mb/s so it was my mistake. The Acemax KII has 1000Mb/s Ethernet and bluetooth. I ordered an MXQ Pro (without the 4K) that claims it has 1000Mb/s and bluetooth and is only about $5 more the the MXQ Pro 4K. I’m still waiting for it. I will post the results as soon as I get it.

  87. Edgar
    June 1st, 2016 at 22:31 | #89

    Can anybody guide me in how to install Linux in the internal memory of these devices? When I boot the MXQ Pro from external SD card, the system gets mounted on /dev/mmcblk1. I can see there is a /dev/mmcblk0, /dev/mmcblk1boot0 and /dev/mmcblk1boot1. I’d like to be able to boot from /dev/mmcblk0, is that possible?
    Thanks for your help guys.

  88. June 3rd, 2016 at 15:16 | #90

    Possible. There are several options. 1. To use an existing breakdown of the sections. To replace existing sections in the file need. Add or change u-boot the boot line. This will require to change the kernel built for Linux. Taking into account the root partition in the internal memory. 2. To change sections. This will require a change u-boot. To create a new table and new teams.

    Hi, I hope someone can help me. I am trying to flash my mk808b plus (armlogic m805) with Ubuntu. But I can’t boot from sdcard. For some reason the reset button doesn’t work. I tried pressing the reset button while booting but the device keep booting normally.

    Is there anyway to force booting from sdcard programmatically (via adb)?

    I know this post is about another product but I am running out of ideas. Thanks

  92. June 29th, 2016 at 14:08 | #94

    @Peuw
    Maybe check on Freaktab, I can see people have run Linux (OpenELEC) on a similar device @ http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-support/amlogic-based-tv-players/s805/others-ab/525892-mxv-with-mk808b-plus-firmware

  93. June 29th, 2016 at 14:35 | #96

    @Peuw
    You may have to connect a USB to TTL debug board to the device to check what’s going at boot time, and why it’s ignoring your SD card. Otherwise maybe try another SD card, possibly with lower capacity.

  94. Peuw
    June 29th, 2016 at 19:44 | #97

    @cnxsoft
    I have tried another SD card with the same result. I don’t have and never use TTL debug board before.

    So there is no config on the Android that can be altered to force it to boot from SD Card?

  95. Shimon
    June 29th, 2016 at 20:09 | #98

    @Peuw Did you use the multiboot script on Android followed by replacing dtb.img with the dtb file from your own device?

    Also, try Armbian, I’ve just discovered frequency scaling works. (unlike Ubuntu)

    Could you please point me to more information about multiboot script on Android?

    According to the instruction above, the device should just boot from SD Card if I press the reset button while powering it on. I have tried different SD Card too but no avail.

    June 30th, 2016 at 20:40 | #102

    Ah, sorry, didn’t notice you were on S805, same hardware as in Odroid C1. (this thread is about S905 based devices)

    I looked at the relevant freaktab thread and it’s supposed to work OTB.
    Either the image you’re trying to flash is corrupt or your SDcards are not liked by the device or the button simply doesn’t work.

    I have no idea if a software solution (like the multiboot script for S905) exists. Hopefully @balbes150 will tell you more.

    I am running Olin’s 14.04 Headless Ubuntu on K1 Plus S905. Runs very well.

    I need to get the K1 Plus built-in (S2/T2) tuner to work. Has anyone managed it to get it to work in the Ubuntu image?

    I know with Amlimux Media K1 and Vitmod OS OpenElec versions have drivers, but it is not opensource.

    @Dasaki
    Hi, could you tell me how do you got the aml_nftl_dev.ko. Do you compiled the driver from the amlogic nand driver source code or you take the module directly?. I’m having some problem copmpiling the aml_ntfl_new. Thank you.

    @Fossxplorer, yes got the MXQ Pro (without the 4K) and works beautifully. I has GB Ethernet which is what I wanted. There seem to be millions of S905 based TV boxes. So far my favorite is the Acemax KIII, but this one is a pretty good one too: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/MXQ-Pro-With-New-Chip-Amlogic-S905-Quad-Core-Andorid-5-1-TV-BOX-BT4-0/32565877807.html

    @Luis sorry for the late reply, but if you read the comments here I guess you’ll find the way. First you need to prepare an SD card that will alter the u-boot environment variables and will allow your device to boot from SD card instead of the internal memory. Once you prepare that SD card using the @balbes150 method, you have to boot your device in Android, put the SD card in your device (that will have a zip file) and run a software upgrade from and app called OTAUpgrade, selecteing the zip file in the SD card. OTAUpgrade allows you to run an Android upgrade with software that is not Android certified.
    Then you can use images for the Odroid C2. In most cases you might have to use a different kernel though to be able to use internal wifi cards, bluetooth or other hardware.
    Sorry for the short reply, but I guess the process requires a fair bit of knowledge of working with images, compiling kernels and so on.
    @balbes150 has written excellent tutorials about it, have a look at this one:

    here’s another tool to extract your dtb from the android /dev/block/boot partition.

    It’s in C so you don’t need perl or python :
    https://github.com/csimmonds/boot-extract

    Also a small tip to check your uboot configuration directly in android adb, at least on one of my s905 boxes :
    “strings /dev/block/env”
    You can also cat /dev/block/env directly but it won’t have proper line returns.

    That’s was useful for checking uboot configuration after applying some boot patch that didn’t work and couldn’t connect a serial to the board.

    @cnxsoft
    Hi,

    W.R.T comments #49 & #50

    I had some spare time last night and followed your instructions finally.
    1. Extracted dtb for my board using android upgrade image (if anyone needs it I can send)
    2. Formatted SD card with one FAT partition conatining dtb and kernal images and other with rootfs

    My board bootsup properly but it fails on chroot …

    Has anyone managed to get K1 Plus built-in (S2/T2) tuner to work in a headless Linux (ubuntu)?

  110. August 9th, 2016 at 11:30 | #113

    @meteorza
    Check this post and subsequent comments -> http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/03/28/openelec-vitmos-os-for-videostrongvenz-k1-plus-android-dvb-receiver/

    That’s not Ubuntu, but still Linux with OpenELEC, and they can control the tuner, so you’d be able to run a live TV streaming server if that’s what you want to do.

    @cnxsoft
    Thanks for the reply.

    However we re-purpose the K1 Plus to receive IP data over DVB. We tried Vitmod RC3, 5 and 6. All of them have problems creating a virtual DVB network interface and receiving data on them. This works well on the Wetek Play running Ubuntu with AVL6211 built-in tuner for example.

    The problems we experience could be related to the Vitmod Openelec kernel and not really specific to S2/T2 itself. So basically I am after the S2/T2 kernel module so that we can use it for Ubuntu. But this does not seem to exist or is not open source. Ubuntu on K1 Plus S905 works well, except we can not get the tuner enabled.

  112. August 9th, 2016 at 13:47 | #115

    @meteorza
    I’m not aware of anybody who’s done what you’re trying to achieve. You could try to contact Vitmod and/or see how to integrate the DVB tuner drivers inside your own kernel, or if your project is big enough, see if you can work directly with Videostrong.

    I have an MX Plus with S905 1GB Ram and 8 GB eMMC.

    I would like to run Ubuntu LXDE or another lightweight GUI Linux over it. Does anyone have it working. Please share steps.

    So far I’ve been able to modify uboot using UART and boot Ubuntu headless but when it boots linux, it does not report any network adapters. While in android the gigabit ethernet adapater works just fine.

    @Methanoid
    Hi, I’m trying to do the same with my MX Plus (S905 with 1GB RAM). Were you able to get a lightweight GUI desktop working ? If yes, can you share the steps please. Thanks.
