I managed to acquire on of these really cheap but it’s only cheap if it works. It’s S905 I thought so it must load CoreElec. I was wrong. It will not boot from SD card. It seems that the aml autoscript doesn’t work because the box hangs on the Amlogic S905 logo when the sd card is inserted on boot.
The manufacturer does provide a zip file that changes it from android to XXXXElec kodi 17.3 but this is sadly lacking (none of the network improvements, no docker and it’s not leia).
Before I give up on this, can I just ask if anyone has any suggestions about getting it to run CoreElec? I don’t expect that there’s going to be anything but I’d be delighted if someone could come up with the answer. Thanks for reading.
