For the S905x3 devices you want to use the Amlogic-ng builds. So option 1.
i put option one using rufus on USB(micro SD also), s905x3 dtb copy to root folder and rename to dtb.img…And nothing while starting device Vontar X3 just android
So it boots to Android whilst PRESSING RESET switch ??
i dont know where is reset on the machine but it go with terminal and type reboot update Thank you
I’m using: CoreELEC nightly_20200112 (Amlogic-ng.arm) for my TV-Box: X96 Max+ (S905X3) and it seems that Bluetooth (BT) is not working at all.
Report accesing via SSH with Putty:
CoreELEC (official): nightly_20200112 (Amlogic-ng.arm)
CoreELEC:~ # systemctl start bluetooth
CoreELEC:~ # bluetoothctl
Default agent request successful
[bluetooth]# power on
No default controller available
Is the BT of TV-Box X96 Max+ (S905X3) working for other users?
Hello…I want to have coreelec on internal storage…I read some themes.I found “installtointernal” command. It is dangerous for device ?
Ceemmc. is the tool.
Sorry for the cross post…
I’ve got the X96Air S905X3 box - how long should it take for the Coreelec logo to appear after using the toothpick method?
64GB MicroSD card - using sm1_s905x3_4g_1gbit.dtb device tree
Picture of reset button.
For me i find it easy to press the button and then connect the DC power jack release button after 1 second.
There is a TV set-top box VONTAR X96Max Android 9.0, X96 Max_Plus 2, (S905X3), and a simple bluetooth remote, “https://aliexpress.ru/item/32847613864.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.a44833edAOLD4W”. the Problem is that in Android the remote works, but in CoreELEC, it seems to be paired, but it does not work. What can be done.
P.S. Board version: Q5X3_141 V3.0 19351, Firmware version 2019.12…
Sorry, wrong link to the remote: “https://aliexpress.ru/item/32914150431.html?spm=a2g0s.90423184.108.40.206cc33edlGbpiy”
Hello. I just bought a Tanix TX5 Pro S905X3 box off of amazon. Even though amazon says it is sold by Tanix I can’t find any mention of it on there website so it’s likely a generic S905X3. It’s the 4-64 version with gig lan.
Using the generic dtb and bluetooth wifi and lan all work ok. I bought this as I just bought a 4K TV and my U1 being a 905 box did not support HDR. So i bought this to play my HDR files. Unfortunately when I play a file I know is HDR my TV is not recognising it as being HDR.
If I play the same file using Roku Media Player then my TV sees it as HDR. I have tried whitelisting the resolution and I can’t seem to get it to recognise any of them as HDR. Any thoughts or ideas as to what I might try?
And I figured out what the problem was. I had to force HDMI 2.0 for that input. The TV wasn’t auto switching properly. So all in all pretty happy with this box.
My IR Remote Config for the Bqeel Y8 Pro…everything’s working:

Has anyone seen the S905Y3 in the wild yet?
A post was merged into an existing topic: Nightly builds (NEW)
HDR is working, check your config in box and TV. And since 20200203 nightly, hdr10+ is working too.
You can try another hdmi cable and/or hdmi port in you TV.
Which box for CE in range about 50$, X96 Air or MAGICSEE N5 MAX or something else?
Can somebody explain me how to install the latest Coreelec nightly on the Vontar X96 Max (S905X3).
I think i have to flash the image on my SD-Card correct? And then?
I read something about pressing the reset button that’s hidden inside the audio jack? But when and why do i have to do this?
Also, when something goes wrong, can i just unplug the SD-Card and use the box like before?
plug in card, as you plug in the power cord, press & hold the reset switch,after a few seconds release the reset, it should then boot the device.
If you remove the card,it will boot to android.
