A friend just ordered a generic S905X3 Box to run CoreELEC.
I promised to help him, since I had many generic AMLogic boxes that all worked perfectly.
It’s a 4GB/64GB 1000MBit S905X3 device called “H9 X3”, according to all the descriptions.
Unfortunately, I cannot get it to boot from mSD!
I have followed the standard steps as I always do and I have tried all these methods as described in the guide:
- Terminal Emulator
- Menu Button
The all result in exactly the same thing:
The box is stuck on it’s flashy H9 X3 logo and that’s it.
It boots just fine into Android when I have the mSD removed…
What am I doing wrong, what else can I try?
I tried both these device trees:
I appreciate any help!
Thanks in advance!
Also, try a different SD card, try booting from a USB stick.
I might be stupid for ruling that out…
I had already tried both USB ports without success, but the 2GB DTB actually worked right away!
So, he got scammed.
The box is actually a 2GB/32GB/100MBit.
Let’s hope he gets a full refund or better the correctly specced box quickly.
Alright, things are getting really strange now.
Apparently, he did not get scammed after all.
Have a look at what Android tells me about the box:
How is that possible? If the box actually is 4GB/64GB, why did only the 2GB DTB work and CE tells me this:?
Unbelievable… The world we live in.
He will send it back and order a well-known X96 Air instead.
Let’s hope this one is OK.
X96 Air arrived - works perfectly.
