I followed the instructions in the thread below.
I made a post there, in the wiki section, as I thought it was the correct place for it based on other posts, but maybe it wasn’t/isn’t. If “double posting” is a faux pas, please let me know and I’ll delete one of these posts.
I have a Sunvell T95U Pro S912 Android box (2Gb RAM, 16Gb storage).
From the Manjaro download page I obtained these files.
I had to use the AM6 version along with the dtb for VIM2 in order for this box to boot Armbrian off of the SD card.
The big problem I’m facing now is no internet, not via Ethernet or wifi.
Am I out of luck or is there some way to get this working?
I tried using the Manjaro version recommended for S912 version but it would not even boot.
When I used the Manjaro version for AM6 and the dtb for S912, it would get stuck in an endless loop error.
The only way to get it to boot into Armbian was to use the Manjar version for AM6 and the dtb for VIM2.
I didn’t see a Manjaro version for GTKingpro.
If someone could kindly point me to this, then I could try that next.
This Android box isn’t of much use to me without internet access, I can’t use it as a htpc or for pihole.
This Android Box is stuck on Android 6.0, there isn’t any available upgrade to a newer version (there used to be a version of 7.0 available but that firmware is impossible to find these days). Android 6.0 is no longer supported by Google, so you cannot access the Play Store to download and install any Apps, you have to find the APK from an alternate, trusted source.
The one piece of potentially good news, is that it may be possible to run pi-hole on this box as is.
I would prefer to run Manjaro on it, but without internet I couldn’t really use it for anything. I am not a gamer, so turning it into a retro emulator doesn’t interest me.
Sorry for the long post, I thought some background info might make this a little more interesting.
Any help that you could provide will be greatly appreciated!
