Docooler M9S Pro 16G works in 9.2.8 but not 19.2


Bit of a noob.

Have an old Docooler M9S Pro 16G that runs libreelec.

cat /proc/device-tree/le-dt-id
(on libreelec)

I’m trying to get CoreELEC running on an sd card/USB stick with the intention of overwriting the emmc when I’ve got the version I want (19.2+) running ok.

CoreELEC 9.2.8 has ‘gxbb_p200_2G_100M.dtb’ which works fine!

CoreELEC 19.2 doesn’t have a 1:1 match and for the life of me I cannot find a dtb that works.

Tried the recommended DTBs from the download page, and all the device trees mentioned in other Docooler M9S Pro posts and many more, same thing happens - M9S logo screen appears, flashes to black for a second then appears again, and loops.

Any clues? It seems strange I don’t have a problem with 9.2.8

Upgrade your hardware to be able to use Kodi Matrix.

Thanks very much for the quick answer.

Sorry Portisch, I’m not sure if it makes a difference, but I omitted the ‘Pro’ from the Docooler M9S Pro 16G product name.

So that’s an S905X SoC rather than S905 I think.

GXBB is not S905X, so no.

Anyway, the output of cat command was obvious - GXBB. So, until further notice, stay on 9.2.8 and wait for the mainline kernel.

Thanks everyone!

Seems like justification enough for some new hardware.
