Hello, I’ve been running CoreELEC for over 3 years now, and all this time I’ve used the SD card. I have never once booted to the android I have on my x96 mini.
Recently, I started having issues with YouTube videos loading and buffering after 1 second. My suspicion is that the SD card is dying, and the writing of the buffer (I’m guessing here) to the SD card takes too much time due to bad sectors or low storage usable.
Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. I was thinking that if I was able to copy the existing installation from the SD card to the eMMC, that won’t be an issue, and maybe I’ll get faster load times as well.
Just to mention, streaming from my NAS works fine even on 1080p, and this is a rather fresh install when I created 19.1 I think on the SD card, so it’s not the same image I stared with. It’s also now an Amlogic -ng which is one of the reasons I switched to the new image.
My question is, is this possible to do, and if let’s say the eMMC won’t boot correctly can I still boot from my SD card? Or is the whole bootloader getting corrupted?
