I’m having problems installing CoreELEC 184.108.40.206 on MECOOL KM9 Pro (s905x2, 4gb). I use g12a_s905x2_4g.dtb. Have also tried g12a_s905x2_2g.dtb, just in case.
When I insert the SD card and boot with the “Toothpick method” I get the MECOOl (“TV Box”) splash screen after which I get a complete black screen. I get the same “error” when I simply boot with the SD card inserted (not using the toothpick). The CoreELEC logo never appear. I have succesfully booted in android recovery using “Toothpick method”.
I’m not able to run ‘reboot update’. In Termux I get ‘unknown command’. In Qute Terminal I get ‘permission denied’. I’m in developer mode as well.
My setup: MECOOL KM9 Pro (s905x2, 4gb)
Android 9, Google Certificated Voice Control Android TV Box
Burned CoreELEC using Rufus onto SanDisk Mirco SD HC 8GB (previously used on LibreElec with Raspberry Pi).
Tried two different HDMI cables, both work when booting into android.
I have the exact same version as on the picture you link - not Android 10. Sorry if I misunderstand your reply, but as I understand it, the folks in the Freasktab topic only experience problems with Android 10, not version 9? Seems like ‘andymarc’ actually had CoreELEC working on Android 9, but that it broke when he update to Android 10? (I know that you can answer for him, just trying to figure things out).
I haven’t been able to find any help on installing CoreELEC in the Freasktab topic. Maybe I’m missing something?
Ok so I tried two different USB sticks - one USB 2.0, one USB 3.0. Using the g12a_s905x2_2g.dtb (figured out that it is the 2gb box that I have). Same error. Also tried to format the sticks from two different USB ports in my computer. No luck with this method either
