Armbian was running from sdcard, android 7 was installed.
I installed it now on emmc, but i can revert to android 7 as this is necessary to have the dual boot.
I’ll download the AM6 rom, (Couldnt find the GTKingpro?) and try again after i flashed Android back.
Where do i find these UART logs, are these stored on the SDCARD or do you want an output of the UART port while booting? The second one, i need to verify if there is an UART port and how i can use it.
The S912 boots with the Beelink image. (HERE) I had to modify the DTB. I used the Q201 as the android 7 uses this in the recovery mode. Will check the S96 later on. I used the KDE and XFCE image, no major changes.
What i did notice is that is slow when using pendrives and SD cards to boot from.
I got a USB 3 SSD now attached, its faster but not breaking world records as the ports on the device are USB2. Need to figure out how to deploy to EMMC maybe this will resolve the slowness issues.
//Update 2: Found the script for the EMMC in /boot/ and it is working.
SUDO BASH \boot\SCRIPT
Updating seems to be ok, drivers are also installed without problems.
If it is using linux or linux-khadas then please install linux-odroid as the kernel.
There was never a support for am6(b) plus yet as it have things which are not exactly as am6-plus.
I asked ugoos for schematic and they send me 2 screenshot of emmc and wifi and I cannot put time on it which such limited documentation.
I asked them to share schematic under NDA but they just shared screenshot of 2 page only.
Sorry for the bad experience but there is very little we can do if there is not documentation or bsp codes shared with us.
Also the OS no longer boots on the latest android image anymore so that is another issue that cannot be resolved until we know what is going on at BSP uboot level.
Did you update your eMMC Android version to latest firmware ?

it’s sad to read this, especially since they claim to have Manjaro support on their blog
it would only require a minimum of effort on their part
no, on the contrary thank you, you are doing an incredible job. I never thought such a small box could run Linux so smoothly. I’m just doing a review to see what can be improved. if it can help…
I solved this problem by using a gtking dtb and modifying it a bit. it seems to work quite well (in reading speed I went from 43mb/s to 145mb/sec anyway!). For sure it would go even better with the official data
personally I use linux kernel, it run smooth and i like the fact that the cores are not always at maximum frequency. on the other hand, with the linux kernel glmark2-es2-wayland gives me 1349 against 1759 with the odroid kernel; But it’s not that obvious in-game.
Hello, @spikerguy do you know if it is possible to activate the spdif output of am6b+ box? if so, does this happen in the dtb? and/or in the system? does it require a driver? I don’t really know where to start
I am using gtultimate with spdif on le and it have the right support. For am6 i am not sure where to look for but check for similar soc which have spdif like gsking pro and try to use the spdif nodes from there in am6 plus you will need audio routing alsa script or you can play with alsamixer.
You will need the optical cable inserted for it to appear.
I’ve just made a few updates to the Amlogic TV box wiki page, most importantly I’ve updated the aml-flash-tool instructions to note that users must install libusb-dev or libusb-compat or whatever libusb 0.1 is called in your distro. No doubt several have read the Manjaro TV box wiki page and wondered why they couldn’t flash their box under Linux - that is most likely why!
I also want to add a photo of the maskrom contact pads for my X96 Air q1000 to the wiki page but I’m not sure uploading pics to the wiki works? Do I have to upload images to another image hosting site (or github maybe)? I’ve tried uploading an image to the wiki but it says I don’t have permission, even though its a page I created and can edit?
When I try uploading an image to the Manjaro wiki, I cannot dismiss the window that appears telling me I don’t have permission to do that. I lost and had to redo about an hours work because of this, because I’d not save my changes before I tried to upload an image.
