Before posting an error please follow these troubleshooting steps.

All good on Khadas Vim4. The results are amazing! I didn’t really find any bug yet, will keep testing.


everything is no issue but the same error of installation to emmc in dual boot mode w/ Android 11
any future plan or resolution to fix it out ?


As written multiple times, this will not be possible because Android data partition is encrypted.

For dual boot use µSD or USB boot media.

And this is no “issue”! This is fact…

How do you think, any chance it will work on Vontar X4? VONTAR X4 Amlogic S905X4 Smart TV Box Android 11 4GB 128G 32GB 64GB Wifi BT AV1 media Player TVBOX 4K 1000M Set top box| | - AliExpress

Vontar X3 works just fine (19.5-Matrix version, 20 not tested yet)

Yes it will! You can get it in Europe and pay 65€ without waiting 2 months…

Apart from the fact that it is not HD Audio compatible. Indeed, it is a superb box. Very efficient for its size.

I am using an X96 Max+ Ultra S905X4 4GB RAM 100Mbps Ethernet device connected to a FHD TV directly.
I have CE-NE 20.1 nightly (20230317) installed on MicroSD with DTB sc2_s905x4_4g.dtb file.
I use it on WiFi and it connects and works nicely on 5GHz band.

Everything in my setup works correctly including VFD display, except for Bluetooth. I have the Bluetooth Service enabled in the CoreElec Services menu, but still in Bluetooth Menu it says Bluetooth Adapter is disabled.
Can you please advise how to get bluetooth working on this device, I use it for bluetooth headphones and keyboard and would be nice if this works on this device.
Please let me know what debug outputs are required and I will provide them. Looking through dmesg output I do not see any BT chipset being recognised at all.
I havent opened my device, but reviewers mention that this device has AM7256 wifi+bt chip.

It is running stock firmware X96Max_Plus_Ultra_20221026-0948 (I havent changed the firmware on the box) and can be downloaded from here


Well that is better than
No adapter found

Make sure you are using default Estuary Skin
Set to Expert/Advanced


Enable Bluetooth

Reboot to apply changes ** may not necessary
Iam creature of habit.

Then move to Bluetooth…

Happy Testing

Yes I do not use any 3rd party skin, run the default Estuary.
As mentioned above I already have Bluetooth services is enabled in the CoreElec Services menu, still in Bluetooth menu, it says disabled.

i have the same box X96 Max+ Ultra with non working bt, which command should i use via ssh?

@Portisch already mentioned in this post that the chip used in this box does not have a linux driver for bluetooth
No solution for now until someone makes a driver for the aml-w1 chip
