Magicsee N5


#21

It looks like some unknown sdio combined wifi+bt chip in use on this device… Cdtech judging by the pictures, I’m guessing your wifi is not working either?


#22

@ffimon @adamg thanks for your reply.
The Wifi is working well on 2.4G and 5G band with limited range capabilities. Performing more test on my device i understood that using an external wifi usb adapter the bluetooth sometimes is working and sometimes not in random and strange behaviour.
If u need more information or logs please do not esitate to ask.
Many thanks.

Thanks @ffimon it looks like your device is using the QCA9377 which has a very well developed open-source driver, we already have support for this.

Can you try and do /usr/bin/hciattach -n -s 115200 /dev/ttyS1 qca 2000000

and then hcitool dev


#26

Here it is :slight_smile:

/usr/bin/hciattach -n -s 115200 /dev/ttyS1 qca 2000000

hci_send_vs_cmd: Send failed with ret value: 0
Failed to attach the patch payload to the Controller!
qca_soc_init: Rome Version (0x00000000)
qca_soc_init: Detected unknown ROME version
Can’t initialize device: Success

hcitool dev

Devices:
hci0 A0:9D:C1:F8:B8:8F

After the commands I try again to pair a bluetooth keyboard but without success. Same strange behaviour. First I can se the device, then , after 30 seconds no more devices.

The remote files for this can be found here


#28

What is a correct DTB file for this box?


#29

Many thanks !
Skunz


#30

The wifi is working but with low performance. Means…no way to stream up to 720p. I use an external adapter and I’m fine with it.
After three days of test I can say that my Magisee N5 is the cheapest s905x device and apart the bluetooth trouble is working very well.
Skunz.


#31

I did a backup 1GB and copied it from the box at 12MB /second using 5g on wireless. The router was in the same room though.

5GH Same Roo

2.4GH Same Room

Through a double brick wall to second router


#32

@ffimon What DTB file you use


#33

gxl_p212_2g dtb


#34

@adamg did you find any reason of non working bluetooth ? Can I provide additional info ?
Thanks
Skunz


#35

I don’t have any devices with the qca9377 chipset so it’s rather hard to diagnose the issue, I have downloaded the Android ROM to see if we are missing anything but I need more time to look at it.

@ffimon 12MB/s is a good speed, I would not say there is anything wrong with that.


#36

Please excuse the forum mess with all the moving/merging of N5 related threads.
Here try this build:

Unfortunately not

I have no problem with the wifi speed I have the version with the dodgy VFD. Skunz has the version with the working display he complaind about the wifi speed on his. Maybe his router doesnt work well a 5Ghz or he has interference from neighbours wifi
