Coreelec does not boot in X96 mini


#1

I am running into a second problem.

I installed Coreelec successfully on a x96 mini 6 weeks ago. All is working fine.
I tried to duplicate the same things with a new x96 mini which I bought recently. Same model.
I downloded the recent image onto a USB stick, changed the and tried the toothpick method (like last time)

Now all what i get is this

What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this?
Thx for your help

Does the installation on SD card/USB stick from first box work on this new box?
There are 2 versions of X96 mini boxes, with S905W and S905X processors…


#3

No, all gets me to this page…
I tried both the “new” and the “old” USB stick…
Will double check the processor, though


#4

It’s the Amlogic 905W processor


#5

IIRC that screen means the USB stick is not ‘seen’.

Will the new USB stick boot on the old device?


#6

What is the Android version on the box?
My X96mini_S905W box is on Android 7.1.2 and it’s rooted.
What about yours?


#7

No, it doesn’t. But I tried with two different USB sticks and a Micro SD card…


#8

That’s exactly my version


#9

And the “old” USB stick doesn’t work on it either. And on top of it I tried with two different x96 boxes which just arrived…


#10

The new x96 mini of mine doest boot eighter from sd card.
tried dtb gxl_p212_2g and gxl_p281_2g as dtb.img.
anybody has a solution for us?


#11

How can I easyaly get coreelec on intern without SD Card???


#12

You need to first get it to boot from SD card to be able to install to internal.
But if you do that, we won’t be able to help with many possible issues, as installtointernal is not officially supported.


#13

why my first x96 mini boot with the same sd cart and the second one doesnt.
Any idea?


#14

If I can´t boot from SD I can´t also not install on internal?
Thankx for answers


#15

is there a possibillity to flash x96 mini from computer, not from SD?


#16

Have you tried the new usbs and sdcard in the old box ?


#17

No, you can’t.
And you could have a bad SD card.


#18

yes the sd card works in the other x96 mini. i don´t understand why not in the secondone.
Tried several libreelec and coreelec.


#19

The sc card is 100% working. Also tried several other dtb.img for s905 w/x

Please try to avoid double and triple posts, but edit your posts instead.

If the same sd card with different installations (CE/LE) works in one device, but not in the other of the exact same model, there is only one logical conclusion:
Your second device is broken.
